A cosy 1870's post and beam restored barn
About andrew peck
This is our 'dream property' which we found in 2002. We weren't looking for a home, but my wife Chloe happened to see the estate the first day it was on the market and called me from the property to come see it. We immediately put in a full price offer, only to be told later that there was another higher offer. We then raised our offer by $80,000. but they sold it to the other buyer anyway for $50K less than our offer. We called the buyer's lawyer and told him to tell the buyer we would pay his price if he were willing to sell. A few months later he called us and offered it for $115,000. more than he'd paid. We were ecstatic. With four post and beam barns circa 1870 three of which had been converted to residences in the 1940's by a local artist of some repute [Judson Smith], fruit trees, a trout stream running though, adjacent to a 77 acre park, and walking distance from the village of Woodstock, there is no other property in the world we can imagine more desirable to us. There was lots of work to do. Now with a decade of work and $250K in renovations, we have it ship shape.

Perfect July 4th
My husband and I stayed over for the Fourth of July and we loved every minute of our stay. The cottage is cozy and lovely. We grilled food and enjoyed the creek as much as we could.
The cottage is located walking distance from the town. The loft bed was fun! We would love to return once again!
adorable, rustic, charming
loved. the nearby stream was a playground for my dog, the cabin is rustic and quiet. good place to retreat! Bring a flashlight for the walk from your car.
I have stayed before so I knew what to expect. The stream was the highlight of the property for me. Other guests were nearby but didn't bother us. The ladder to the loft was interesting in the middle of the night but part of it's charm. I would stay there again. The property owners were great and communication was easy.
Adorable, everything you need. Beautiful spot. Will definitely return!
Charming, cozy . Great water feature in the back!!
The cottage is indeed charming . Very homey and cozy. It just had enough city conveniences but not too much to forget that youre supposed to be roughing it a little bit. The pullout bed was comfortable. We did not use the loft since we brought our 8 month old baby and a dog . Older kids would enjoy sleeping up there, might not be too safe for young ones.
Zoe our dog enjoyed playing in the creek/ river in the back of the property .
Though the weather was not as nice as we would have hoped this cottage had everything my Wife and I needed to unwind for a couple of days. Depending on the weather you may have to bring your luggage from your car to the cottage (about 75 yards). This was no big deal, but something you may want to be prepared for. We hope to come back when we can do some exploring of the surrounding nature. Thank you!
The Teahouse Cottage is on an artist's estate walking distance to the center of Woodstock Village. It overlooks a trout stream and on the other side is a 77 acre park with miles of walking trails. In the Catskills there is hiking, fishing, swimming, skiing, antiquing, and many other activities. Woodstock has several excellent restaurants.
