News!!: As of Nov. 1, 2015, the Airbnb rental room has changed!.. more spacious!.. Bath is still a few a few short steps from your room.
We are located on a quiet rural/suburban street 2 1/2 miles from the center of Woodstock. Easy acces to local sights, activities, entertainment and neighboring towns. Ample parking. Aprox. a 15 min. bike ride or 40 min. walk (mostly quiet) to town!
The room is equipped with a full sized comfy bed, plenty of storage etc..your bathroom is a few short steps away in the hall.
Bedrooms are at one end of the house, common areas are located at the other end.
The house is light and roomy and filled with comfortable and tasteful furnishings. It sits on a partially wooded lot with a large, unfenced yard. There is a deck off the kitchen.
****Please no smoking in or around the house.*****
I prefer guests to arrive before 8 pm. and tend not to take last minute guests, though I can be flexible.
I am an activities/expressive arts therapist and have raised 2 grown children in the 20 years+ that I've been a resident of Woodstock. I love to share my knowledge of this unique area and its inhabitants!
Woodstock and environ is truly special and beautiful with diverse attractions - (like Zen and Tibetan monasteries), local streams for swimming, mountains for hiking and skiing, a golf course, great restaurants, a variety of musical venues, theatre, art, yoga and dance. Our little town plays host to world class festivals as well - The Woodstock Writers Festival in the spring and the Woodstock Film Festival in the fall, for example.
Also, I discourage guests to come without their own car. Even though we are within a few miles of town (a nice walk or bike ride if you bring your bike), areas of interest are spread out, and public transportation is limited.
Guests are welcome to use the fridge or freezer for a few items.
I don't permit actual cooking.
I try to be sensitive to the needs of the guest. The amount of interaction depends on a booking's particulars, however I do try my best to be present for arrival and departure.
Because all the bedrooms are close to each other, if guests wish a lot of privacy, it's best to book elsewhere.
I like to say that the neighborhood is rural suburbia. It's quiet and pleasant for a walk or run. It is well situated for getting to town center and to the thruway.
Best to have your own vehicle.

Interaction with Guests
I try to be sensitive to the needs of the guest. I have a busy schedule so the amount of interaction depends on a booking's particulars however I do try my best to be present for arrival and departure.
Because bedrooms are close to each other, if guests wish a lot of privacy, it's best to book elsewhere.
The neighbor hood, I like to say, is rural suburbia. It is well situated in proximity to Woodstock town center (2-3 miles), and the Thruway.
Best to have your own vehicle.
No smoking in or around house.
No meal preparation i.e. - cooking.
Shoes off at entrance if possible.
Have fun, stay safe, be considerate!
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2016 the minimum stay is 1 night.
I lead arts based and therapeutic groups for a living. I love culture, community, friends and family. I love being physically active, and involved in local events and activities. Politically, I am very liberal and am pretty opinionated. I have two grown sons in their mid 20's, one living in NYC and the other in LA. I have lived through difficult circumstances and believe each of us works at the attitudes and grace we bring into our lives. I am interested in people and their unique stories. I value a sense of humor. I love movies (most often independently made ones), art, dance, yoga, literature, a range of music (opinionated about this as well), interesting food, and....
As a host, I like to provide a comfortable, home like atmosphere while allowing people their space. I know the Woodstock area and what it offers very well.
I enjoy the opportunities of being an Airbnb host - direct, positive interaction with people I would not otherwise meet.
