This cozy cottage on the edge of Woodstock is perfect for relaxing & recharging from the chaos of everyday life. Despite freezing temperatures over Thanksgiving we were kept warm & snug by a fantastic wood burner (& ample stock of logs !) and enjoyed the thoughtful and authentic furnishings that help make this property so special.
It is ideally situated for the short walk into the center of Woodstock and also the surrounding woods in which we saw a variety of local wildlife (deer / barred owl / cardinals etc).
We left refreshed and ready for the world again and will definitely be back.
The house was exactly as advertised, it was very quaint and cosy, and the attention to small details made it extremely attractive inside. Even though it is small you don't feel too cramped. The kitchen had everything we needed in terms of crockery (some condiments but no olive oil, a selection of teas that was appreciated, and the coffee was available and ready to use). We did bring a dutch oven to cook on the stove top since there is no actual oven, which I knew ahead of time. As per previous reviews a couple of things to note: the heating does make a loud clicking noise - I had followed the owners recommendation to the previous visitor and turned the thermostat down before going to bed which solved the issue. The house is close to the owners property but feels very private since it is fenced in and you have a large garden which felt like it was our own - it does look like it is shared with another house that is on air and b however, so I imagine if that one was occupied during the stay and people were out in the garden it would have felt less private. The location is very convenient for hiking trails, and the town of Woodstock. Whilst it is walking distance we did not feel safe walking at night since it is a country road and extremely dark without much lighting - but Ubers were available. The weather was really cold during our stay and I could not get the sauna hot enough to really enjoy it - I am not sure if this was due to the outside temperature or the fact that it is electric and not steam operated - that said I am sure if I had contacted the property manager I would have been able to get assistance, we just got busy doing other things and abandoned the idea. The shower is in an odd place as previously described. It is not particularly convenient to dry off in the kitchen but that is the layout of the house is and we were expecting it from reading the reviews; it is offset by the fact that there is a skylight so you are showering under the stars which is a nice touch. From a space perspective it would have been nice to have a separate bedroom, but it is a studio and is advertised as such so you know that, and there is so much to do in the area we (myself, my boyfriend and our dog) weren't in the house enough for it to be much of an issue. Chelsea set everything up for us well with regards to instructions prior to arrival and was very communicative during checkout. Very happy with our stay!
