Village of Woodstock in the Heart of the Catskills! What's not to love? Perfect for folks looking to escape the crime and grime of NYC but not the art, culture and nightlife. One of the truly "in-town" cabins; The Rocket Room is the perfect getaway spot, a couple block walk from the bus drop off in the Woodstock town square, yet set back into a private woods. Rustic and cozy, it is filled with hand picked mid-century modern furniture and vintage kitsch. Designed by husband and wife team, Martin and Erin, a design build contractor and illustrator/fashion designer respectively. Obsessive travelers themselves, they've created a fun, funky place with all the comforts they appreciate while on the road.

The Rocket Room is ideal for a lone traveler or couple. Outfitted with a high-end double mattress made cozy with 400 thread count sheets and a feather duvet. There is the perfect writing desk set by a sunny window with active WiFi. The reading nook has a comfortable seat with a great foot rest; there's always a couple interesting magazines and books to read. While we ourselves are not prone to watching t.v. on vacation, we realize some nights cuddling in bed and watching the tube is great, so there is a small set with a dvd player and about 40 movies to choose from. The kitchenette is equipped with a toaster oven, rice cooker and coffee maker. (no stove!) There is also a fridge to store left overs (or beers!) in. You'll find seating for two at the counter top bar. The bathroom has a stand shower with great pressure (soap, shampoo and conditioner complimentary) and oversize, 100% cotton bath towels to dry yourself off. Past the bathroom is a very large walk in closet. So big that recently a visiting couple with a toddler put the PAC-n-play in there and made a second bedroom. We are child friendly (and have a pac-n-play for loan)! Please note while the RR does not have air conditioning we do provide a fan and the nights are cool in the Hudson Valley.
Location. Location. Location. The Rocket Room is located on the West end of town, about a four block walk from the bus drop off and town square. Tucked just a block off of Tinker St. in the lovely neighborhood behind the movie theater and Varga visionary art gallery. The library can be accessed by traveling the back streets of the neighborhood and has awesome programs if you're bringing kids. Everything else in town is super close. The Wine Store is just a block and half down Tinker St. Woodstock has some amazing restaurants, we highly recommend the corned beef hash or truffled eggs at Oriole 9's breakfast and the roast beef sub at Catskill Mountain Pizza. They cook their own meats! Coffee at Bread Alone is another must. If you stay May-Nov on a weekend make sure you don't miss the Woodstock Flea Market, it's half a block behind Bread Alone. If you are coming to see art, the myriad galleries in town rotate their shows often. You can also try your hand at creating art by taking a workshop at Byrdcliff (right in town) or Woodstock School of Art (just east of town). Music is never lacking in Woodstock the Bearsville theatre just 2 miles from our place has an awesome calendar of events, Levon Helm's (R.I.P.) family has got the Rambles back up and going and Colony Cafe' (walking distance) has some amazing local talent. If you are coming in the winter Hunter Mountain is a short 35 minute drive through beautiful country. If you're coming in the summer don your suit and grab a towel, the Big Deep swimming hole is just minutes outside Woodstock.
There is one car parking guaranteed for The Rocket Room but we most likely will be able to accommodate a second car, just ask in advance. We are animal lovers and so pets are accepted for a fee. We ask that they are not destructive to environments and are friendly to people, children and other animals (we have two dogs and a cat on the property). There is plenty of room on the property to tie them to a long lead but the yard is not fenced. There is a great field just around the corner to let them blow off steam.

  • A cute and cozy spot within close proximity to the town's main drag, the rocket room offered a comfortable space, scenic surroundings and friendly hosts.

    Thanks, M & E!

  • Martin and Erin are very gracious hosts and the cabin was extremely cozy and comfortable with a beautiful view and is very close to the center of town. I would stay there again.

  • Very cute studio reminded me of my first apartment when I was 18 ...or that garage apartment everybody's grandma had with the funky 50s kitsch decor! For a quick jaunt to Woodstock, it was the perfect accommodation. Easy to find, close to town, separate from host's house for privacy, but nice to know the hosts were right next door if we needed anything. Appreciated the convenience of shampoo and conditioner, and still having flashbacks of the 70s from that retro hairdryer :)

  • This place is adorable and well appointed. Perfect location just a 5 minute walk from town. Martin and Erin were welcoming and had the place set up perfectly. It was cozy and comfortble -- we'd definitely stay there again!

  • Perfect location, super cool hosts, as well as clean, adequate accommodations with with a tastefully executed kitch design theme. Will visit again.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Woodstock and the adorable room we were staying in made it even more special. I never got to meet the hosts, but they kept in touch via text message and gave us some great suggestions for dinner, drinks, and brunch. The only thing I would have changed about the experience was that there were no curtains on some of the windows, including the bathroom window, so we had to make a make "towel curtain."…which was fine. The bed was really comfortable and we appreciated the DVD selections…fell asleep watching Some Like It Hot. The next time we go to Woodstock, we would love to stay here again.

  • The Rocket Room is officially our favorite hiding spot in the State of NY. Maybe in this Galaxy.

  • Great communication with Martin and Erin...This little rustic mid century room is steps away from the heart of Woodstock! We enjoyed our stay and the movie selections on DVD. The near by overlook mountain hike is amazing.

    March 2014
  • Great little spot in Woodstock... close enough to walk to town but feels very private... exactly what we were looking for!

    March 2014
  • Our stay with at the Rocket Room was perfect! You could tell that Erin and Martin took great care to make the room a place where guests could relax and "come home to" while visiting Woodstock. Thanks again Erin and Martin!

About
Hi! Thank you for checking out our property and taking a look at us. We've been married for five years and friends for twelve. Martin moved to Brooklyn from San Fransisco to be with me. We never thought we would stop living in cities. The restaurants, the music, the art and fashion! However on our first trip to Woodstock in Sept 2011 we totally fell in love with this town. It has everything we love about cities. Walking around town on that trip we saw this property for sale and thought it was amazing. In February 2012 we visited Woodstock again and spontaneously decided to move here. We checked but this property was no longer available. One month later the owner put it back on the market and we jumped on it. And just like that, we're moving to Woodstock! The property is right in town, located in a friendly neighborhood right behind the movie theater. There are two buildings on the property, the main house and a building housing a studio, garage and storage space and a one bedroom. The place was built in the 1930s. We are both life long vintage-philes and will be keeping all the original fixtures. I am an artist and am looking forward to turning the garage/storage area into a studio to work on my illustrations and fashion line. I currently teach at Pratt Institute's fashion department, and I plan to eventually run workshops on the property. Martin is from Chicago and totally approves of the local pizza joint. He owns his own business as well in NYC. Both of us love music and are thrilled to have the Bearsville Theatre right down the road. As hosts its our goal to make you as comfortable as possible. We've both been traveling extensively since we were teens. Each of us has seen most of this amazing country, (Martin 49 states and Erin 48!). We have also been to numerous countries around the globe. With the Rocket room we've done our best to design a great space for you trip but if you need anything please let us know!
