This 1920's converted barn has the original beams and antique fixtures w/vintage and new furnishings. The french doors on one complete wall amplify the open space with views of the Catskill Mts., pond, fields, and the vast sky. No smoking no pets.
No pets. You love them, I love them, but they cannot stay here.

The space

My guest house is light and airy, with many windows and French doors that show our four acres of meadows and fields with the birch-lined pond and the Catskill Mountains beyond. There are several sitting areas at the pond (in sun or shade) for gazing at the flowering lily pads and frogs...or sipping a cocktail and talking.
The interior of this 650 sq. ft. converted barn has wooden floors, hand-hewn beams, and vintage furniture. There are smoke detectors throughout and a first aid kit on the ground floor. You enter into the open living room/kitchen that is furnished with a couch, chair, coffee table, and a dining area with a table and 4 chairs. There is a small frig, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and tea kettle, with coffee, tea, half and half, and fruit provided. On the shelf are glasses, dishes, and silverware - if you prefer to get take-out from the many wonderful local restaurants and cozy in for the night.
The antique wood stove is a decorative item. There is electric baseboard heat in each room that keeps it cozy in the winter and an air conditioner is in place for the summer months, and fans for in between.
Upstairs, the old barn boards are all painted white. It is open and spacious - with a king bed, day bed, dresser, desk and chaise lounge. The separate bathroom has a Japanese-style soaking tub/shower - where you will also find soap, shampoo, bubble bath, towels, and a hair dryer.
The French doors on the ground floor open onto a private stone patio and have magnetic screens that keep the bugs out. On the north side of the guest house is a wooden deck with 2 chairs open to the field and completely private. Further in the field, between the two huge maple trees swings a double hammock for your use. A badminton net is up and rackets are in the house. A croquet set is there too. I provide blankets for star-gazing in the hammock at night or enjoy the zero gravity chairs in the open field. Wifi, games, books, puzzles, no TV, no stove. Breakfast is available 1 mile away in a charming country store, Cub Market, or 2.5 miles in the town of Woodstock.
...and flowering plants and flowers, always flowers!
p.s. I love your dogs, you love your dogs, but they cannot stay here. No pets. Please stop asking.

My favorite moment of our stay was waking up in the morning, looking out the window and without having to even lift my head from the pillow, being able to see the mountains in the distance. Beverly’s converted barn was a perfect romantic anniversary getaway for my husband and I. The modern rustic decor makes the space warm and inviting. Beverly was a very friendly and thoughtful host and made our stay very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend staying here as the property is in an idyllic setting. With a beautiful mountain view and only a few minutes drive down the road from the town Woodstock- I would definitely stay here again!

Beverly's guest home is great! It's a beautiful space, perfect for a couple and only a few minutes drive into town. She was very friendly, gave us suggestions of things to do, and was very easy to get in touch with at all times. Highly recommend this home for a weekend getaway!

If you are looking for a relaxing and memorable getaway, look no farther than Beverly's place. She is such a warm and inviting host sharing with her guests a truly magnificent area. Her home is just charming. It is warm, boasts character, it is secluded and nestled in nature, it gleams with natural light, it is comfortable, simple, and meticulously maintained. It shows who she is and the pride she takes to share her oasis with others. We can't wait to come back!

Bard College, BA , English Lit.
Passionate about traveling...backpacked through Europe for 6 months in my 20's, then visited other countries for another 28 years on tour with my musician/ husband, Artie, until he passed away in 2008.
This is a new chapter with a new partner in the book of my life.
I enjoy meeting people and sharing this beautiful piece of land that once belonged to the Marvin family, where actor Lee Marvin grew up.
Antiques are also my passion that I buy and sell and I also conduct estate sales for others.
Love flowers, cooking, and gardening. Been growing my mom's heirloom tomatoes from seed that she saved long before it was fashionable - when it was simply the way to do things.
A life motto? Keep your mind and heart open - life is full of changes - and to quote an enlightened friend, "There is never a reason NOT to be kind".
