House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps
Woodstock Designn Waterfront House
This newly remodeled private waterfront cottage is just 3
minutes from the center of Saugerties, NY and 15 minutes
from Woodstock, NY. Enjoy the best of both towns: specialty
shops and boutiques, delectable food, farmers markets, live
music and glorious scenery.
The 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage is a spacious, serene and
comfortably elegant retreat. It’s ingeniously tailored for a
romantic getaway, a family gathering, or for two friends
on a shopping-fishing-antiquing-hiking or whatever you-
cook-up weekend. It's roomy enough for a crowd, yet still
cozy and private enough for a revitalizing artist or writer’s
No need to sacrifice urban elegance for country charm,
because here you truly have both. The house is an authentic
1930’s cottage, now airily restyled and open, with the
sophistication of a luxed-out loft. It was the beloved
childhood family cottage of former L.A. stylist Daisy Bolle,
current owner of Hudson Valley fashion mecca DIG, and
Daisy’s smashing taste is reflected in every detail of this
beautiful remodel. The house still belongs to her parents,
Mike and Robin Kramer, longtime owners of the two hottest
clothing stores in Woodstock: Woodstock Trading Post and
Woodstock Design. Luxury and cozy comfort are in this
Each room has been thoughtfully designed and decorated
to invite the outdoors in, surrounding you with resort-
style comfort. Enormous windows and French doors to the
stunning deck provide an all-day display of the renowned
ever-changing Hudson Valley light. Keep them open to savor
evening breezes and glowing sunsets, and then light a cozy
fire in the living room fireplace, which you can also see from
This rare property includes direct access to the Esopus
Creek, famous for summer and winter sports. Take a dip
or launch a kayak from your private dock, onto the smooth
glide of the creek. Once there, let the world slip by as your
stress slides away. Take a photo safari up this Hudson Valley
Nile, capturing shots of nesting egrets, cranes and swans.
Nature provides a daily surprise in this sought-after
Hudson Valley setting, known for its mountains, woods,
and meandering rivers. Poets and painters will find enough
inspiration to last the rest of the year. You might even nab
a prime trophy bass. The gentle lapping of the creek will
serenade evening star–gazing and cocktails on the deck, or
a night of barbeque and games with the kids. Linger over
lattes and the morning papers while you plan the day’s
adventures. You may just decide relaxing on the deck is all
the adventure you need.
When it’s time for sleep, sink into sumptuous king-sized
beds in both bedrooms. One of the two couches in the
living room also folds out into a queen mattress. Linens
are provided for you, including silk-like soft Beechwood
sheets, down blankets and pillows, and fluffy bath sheet-
sized towels laundered with Seventh Generation unscented
detergent. The bath features radiant-heat floors, iridescent
artisan tiles, heated towel racks and a floating vanity.
The pantry is stocked with gourmet basics like organic
coffee, tea, honey and oatmeal, and the fridge holds choice
mustards, bbq sauce and other surprises. Whether you’re a
seasoned cook or just want to whip up some smoothies, the
kitchen — with its gleaming industrial chic appliances and
a five-burner gas stove with convection oven — will satisfy
your appetite for customized, supreme efficiency.
You’ll be cozily secluded, tucked onto a quiet lane in
Saugerties, recently named by Frommer’s as one of
America's 10 Coolest Small Towns. Saugerties — hilly and
rich with hidden treasures like upscale breakfast joints,
antique shops, places to enjoy micro brews or perfect
cappuccinos, is a funky blend of historic Catskill charm and
local artistic flair. For horse fans, HITS summer events are
fast becoming the talk of the town.
Woodstock is a scenic 12-minute drive, offering miles of
mountain trails, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, day trips
for picnics, secluded swimming holes, hiking and biking, a
rich rock ‘n roll history and unique restaurants and shops,
including a huge weekend flea market.

Very nice home, great location
My family of 5 stayed there during a chilly April but still has a great time. You can fish off the dock and there's a local place that will deliver and pick up kayaks. Grocery stores nearby and Woodstock is just a short drive. Other than the inability to block the intensely bright morning sun if you're sleeping on the pullout sofa, no complaints. Was well stocked, too.
super nice place, done soup to nuts in high end everything, furniture, kitchenware, you name it. tons of storage and not a personal knick knack, photo or belonging of any kind on the property - because the owners do not live there any part of the year, it is free of the feel of you being in someone's home. and not a peace sign pillow or hanging in sight, no doves sitting on guitar necks, etc - which is near impossible in this neck of the woods... very very tasteful. with a gorgeous stretch of the esopus right out the back door and woods on the opposite bank.
Relaxing long weekend
My husband, dog, and I recently spent a long weekend at Steve's lovely home on the Esopus creek. The house was very comfortable and clean, nice towels and linens; we were at home immediately. Such a nice touch to arrive to a fridge stocked with bread, eggs, jam, and milk for breakfast. We enjoyed unseasonably warm weather in November, and loved sitting outside on the beautiful deck, playing Scrabble with a bottle of wine one afternoon. Saugerties was an adorable town just a few minutes drive away with a few great restaurants and shops. Very close proximity to incredible hiking and skiing that we'd like to return for.
A Glorious Getaway Spot
We've stayed here four times over the past several years and look forward to many more visits. The recent renovations make this an unbelievably comfortable and classy spot to unwind for a few days, with the Esopus Creek as your backyard. Views from both the deck and the living room are stupendous and amenities are first-rate.
This property has it all. The amenities were modern and perfect. The views were beautiful. Every little detail was well maintained. The bread, milk, eggs, fresh jam and butter in the fridge were over the top and a wonderful treat. The property is conveniently located to downtown. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will be definitely be going back!
The Best of Everything
What a wonderful relaxing house! This little gem is completely equipped, from cooking utensils, to state of the art washer dryer, to heated bathroom towel racks. We had a lovely time relaxing on the deck overlooking the water and watching the family of ducks that swims by several times a day. I would rent this house whenever I visit the area. It made our trip!!!
