This cozy country cottage in Shady NY has 2 bedrooms, complete kitchen, one bathroom, living room and dining area. In one bedroom (east side) are 2 full size beds and 3 twin size beds and a large picture window that looks out at the mountain. The other bedroom (west) has a queen size bed. It is possible to move a twin bed out of the east room and put it into the west room or otherwise re-arrange the bed(s). Airconditioned in summer and electric heat (you set the thermostats!) in the winter makes this cottage comfortable any time of the year. Wireless internet is available, but there is no TV or cable which will enhance your country experience! There is no cell phone service in the immediate area, but is available a short drive away from Shady. Seasonal amenities include access to a hot tub and swimming pool, gardens, and artist's sculptures on the property. The south east side of the property is bordered by a stream and woods. We are close to winter recreation destinations including Hunter Mountain (29 mi.) and Windham (38 mi.). The town of Woodstock is 7 mi. away where there are many fine restaurants, yoga, shopping, and the yearly Woodstock Film Festival. The Berkshires are a short drive away (Great Berrington, MA is 60 mi. away) and other upstate NY destinations including: Bearsville Theatre, Bard College, great hiking trails, State Parks and Forests, streams, swimming holes and water falls. Privacy is yours, but if you need anything from us, your hosts, we are at your service, and the main house is yours to come and go if there is anything you require. Weekly and monthly rate is available, and adjustable.
1. We ask that you recycle as much as possible, including composting, plastic and glass. There are receptacles available in the cottage. Also, as part of this, we ask that you minimize your production of refuse that is non-recyclable, i.e. re-usable cloth shopping bags are provided for your use. We appreciate your conservation efforts by not leaving lights on or electric heat turned up when you are not in the cottage and by conserving water. Environmentally friendly cleaning products are available should you need them.

4. We have a cat in the main house not in the cottage.
