As Seen on TLC - The Stone Tower House w/ Hot Tub
|Per night||$200 - $500|
Gorgeous two-story house with fine stone detail and amazing wood accents. The stone fireplace is massive and anchors the first floor. The wood floors are made of a very non-traditional squared butcher block, rather than typical wood planks. The stone tower and accents in the garden were taken stone by stone from a ruined historic building in CT, and lovingly weaved together to create this one of a kind living art installation by Volovski.
The large open kitchen flows into the dining room, living room and sitting room. Just a step down from the back side of the kitchen is a four-season glass and stone solarium soaking in the southern exposure.
Outside cedar hot tub, two level decks situated on over three private acres...excellent for entertaining or just getting away!

Another thing that many people don't know is that back in the nineteenth century, long before our present fame, the Woodstock area was known internationally as a center for American artists and craftspeople. Then in 1902 the famed Byrdcliffe arts and crafts colony was established, and shortly afterward the Art Students League of New York City opened a summer school here. Today we are home to galleries that are widely noted for exhibits of the finest arts and crafts. To complete the artistic environment we also have important recital halls upon whose stages distinguished classical, jazz and popular music ensembles regularly perform. Soon we will take pride in adding a new performing arts center. All of this is set amid lovely forested mountains, with some of the most scenic rural vistas to be found anywhere.
Not bad for a little town which began centuries ago as a hub of farming, quarrying and tanning! To this day many of our townspeople are engaged in trades and professions having little to do with art or music, though quite a few are also involved in artistic pursuits. We are carpenters and electricians, maintenance workers and computer programmers, service workers and homemakers. It must be said that the historic relationship between our artists and non-artists has created the social dynamic that allows our town to flourish and earn the fame which has descended upon it.
We have a small but vigorous commercial center dotted with shops, many of which sell unique wares ranging from candles to antiques, and from rare books to unusual crafts. (Someone joked that Woodstock is the place to find a good pair of organic shoelaces.) Our restaurants and cafes offer you fine dining experiences, and you will find some of the quirkiest celebrations in the state (ie. Halloween and Christmas Eve).
Come for a stay, but you may not want to leave!

The house needs some TLC (cosmetic and could have been a little cleaner), but overall we loved the unique design of the house and the spectacular view (even better than expected). The "Tower Deck" photo is actually off the kitchen, and made for a cute and sun-filled eating area. Tower itself was a bit too cold for us to enjoy, but still fun to check out. The hot tub was a highlight for us. Would definitely stay here again.

Vacation was fun but we did have a few problems. First, the hot tub took 6 hours to get to temperature, not an hour (as had been stated by the agent/owner). It is alot of water to heat. Secondly, you should put in your listing that there is an access problem to the address in snow, and that a 4 wheel drive vehicle is best. We got the vehicle up to the house on the second day, after having to leave it a mile down the hill (with most of our stuff in it) on the first day. Pretty inconvenient. Had to hike down to the car on day 2. Third, while I was in my boxer shorts at about 9am on checkout day (Tuesday 1-11) a car drove up and 4 people and a dog got out and said that they were supposed to be able to get into the house now. They said they had spoken to "Cree" about it. My girlfriend and I were embarrassed about it, and because the new renters were on their way to skiing they had to drop off their dog in the house with us (and our own dog). We agreed to help them, but it was a bit of a pain in the ass. We watched their dog until we left. I do not know Cree, and instead dealt with "Erin" Why the mixup? It wasn't like it ruined our stay or anything, but it did effect our time there on check-out day. Chris

Let's just start off by saying this is a great value for the price. The house slept 11 comfortably and we were happy to have a beautiful view and a nice hot tub....However! The layout was kind of bizarre with the grand fireplace right by the front door and no seating around it. The kitchen is quite large but lacks a lot of ammenities that they promised- starter paper towels, dish soap. There are plenty of pots and pans, knives, glasses but if you are a real gourmet, bring your own. Plus the coffee maker broke on the second day. Watch out for a bunch of New Yorkers without their coffee! The bathrooms didn't have any towle racks or hooks and only 1 roll of toilet paper. One set of jets on the hot tub didn't work (that's okay because the jets are too strong anyway). The TV had about 6 remotes with no instructions. Don't want to sound like a winer - but overall the place just wasn't that great. If you are looking for space (the rooms are huge), a decent hot tub then you will be fine. It only takes good friends to have fun at this place. Just be prepared.

I rented this home for my immediate family of 4, plus my parents and adult brother for 3 nights in May. It was a bit out of the way and quite outdated, but we made the best of it and had fun anyways. The house comes with many bugs and be prepared to bring your own toilet paper and put sheets on your own bed. The hot tub was great, and the house allowed us plenty of space to spread out. Much more comfortable than a crummy hotel room, but overpriced for what it is.
We really enjoyed our time at your home in Woodstock, and would be interested in a return stay at some point soon. -Steven J., New Jersey
