This unique, charming home is now more affordable than ever!

My charming 1918 Woodstock original welcomes you from the moment you turn up the long, private drive, on 40 wooded acres. Total privacy, yet close to town. With 1 1/2 acres of fenced, landscaped yard, your well-behaved dogs are free to run!

Der Wohnraum

The kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking, and has been the scene of many, many wonderful meals. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the cabinets, and the locations of pots, pans, etc.

There are many herbs, spices and condiments that we leave from previous guests rather than throw away after every visit. The list is by no means complete, however, and if you have any favorite ingredients, either bring them or be prepared to buy them in Woodstock

When your stay has ended and you are heading home, please leave the kitchen as if it was your own, with counters wiped, stove cleaned, and any unwashed dishes in the dishwasher, ready to go.

There are two linen closets on the second floor. One is just to the left of the top stair in the hallway. There are extra queen-sized comforters in plastic bags. The second linen closet is just inside the bathroom door on the right. Among other things, duvet covers for the comforters are in there.

There are two bedrooms on each floor, each with its own personality. The east bedroom on the second floor has a doorway out to the old sleeping porch, a wonderful and charming screened-in tree-house hideaway. In the days before air conditioning or even fans, the sleeping porch would be the only comfortable place in the house during the few steaming nights of late July and August.

The house is not on sewer or municipal water. The water, while naturally sweet and pure, is additionally triple-filtered and treated with UV light.

The house employs an old-school septic system. Please respect its limitations by FLUSHING ONLY WASTE AND TOILET PAPER.

The artwork is all my personal property. Some is good, some is meh, and some pieces are original, some prints. Several are by local artists. My great-uncle painted the landscape by the round arts-and-crafts table in the living room. The little boy by the living room door to the entry hall is me. Lillian Lent, Hongnian Jian, Calvin Grimm, Lucinda Knauss and Cornelia Schmitter are all local folks.

The floors creak! They have always creaked, since I was a little boy. Stealth will be impossible.

Zugang für Gäste

The front door key is in a lockbox on the front door. The combination will be provided through personal communication. It works the deadbolt, and is used from the inside to lock up at night also. It's a good idea to leave it under the ship's lantern or back in the lockbox when you go out. Folks have lost the key more than once! And, of course, when you head home, please leave it in the lockbox.

Interaktion mit Gästen

I am available at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). That said, I am in Florida, so I may refer any problems I can't solve over the phone to Rich Hoffman, the caretaker and cleaner, whose number is (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). My daughter, Paloma, and her husband Mitch live in the studio nearby, and can be called on as well.

Weitere wichtige Infos

There is a DVR with the cable box. DVDs can be played through your personal computer, or plugged directly into the TV. There are cables and DVDs in the drawer below the TV.

Each floor is equipped with a Bose AirPlay stereo unit. Once you have connected your phone, iPod of computer to the wi-fi system, you can play your music through AirPlay with iTunes in the Bose units. The Bose system should be in "on" mode, as indicated with a dark blue wi-fi icon on the front of the speaker. An icon will appear on the bottom right-hand corner of your phone screen or in the upper right of your computer, which will allow you to choose which unit you wish to play music through. You can also control the volume through your personal device.

The washer and dryer are in the cellar, and you are welcome to use them for your personal use. It is an old laid-up bluestone basement, state-of-the-art for Woodstock in 1918, and when it rains, water sometimes runs across the floor. This is normal, but it makes it difficult to keep clean. We apologize for the basement! We're working on ways to make it more hospitable.

There is provision for recycling in the small wooden shed outside the kitchen door. Trash, if you must empty the can in the kitchen, goes in the former chicken coop, the largest of the outbuildings inside the yard.

There are outdoor games in the chicken coop. We ask that you return them there at the end of your stay.

Hausregeln
Rauchen verboten

No smoking anywhere inside the house, please.

Be very conscious of fires in the fireplace, or in the outdoor burner, even candles. It is an old wooden house.

Please celebrate with restraint, and treat my family house with respect.

At the end of your stay, it would be appreciated if you could strip the beds and gather all the bedding and used towels in a pile by the corner cupboard in the dining room, which is adjacent to the door to the cellar, where the washer and dryer are situated.

The butcher block counters are new, and not intended as cutting board. PLEASE USE THE CUTTING BOARDS PROVIDED FOR ALL FOOD PREPARATION.

The second-floor fireplace, while tempting, may be blocked and is a wicked bad smoker, so it must not be used.

The living room fireplace is okay to use on cold nights. Firewood is stacked out under the carport. I beg you to be vigilant, and when going to bed, make sure that the coals are stable, and will not roll out during the night. I prefer not to use the andirons, because the fire seems to burn better when sitting directly on its coals, but it's your choice. ALWAYS USE THE FIRE SCREEN. And before lighting the fire, MAKE SURE THE CHAIN, TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FIREBOX, THAT OPENS AND CLOSES THE CHIMNEY-TOP DAMPER, IS ALLOWED TO RUN UP. WHEN YOU LEAVE, PLEASE PULL IT DOWN ALL THE WAY AND HOOK IT INTO ITS BRACKET.

The place is truly wonderful. Secluded and private but only a short drive to town with lots of shops and restaurants. The home is full of history, art and things to see. We all loved it. Andre is a legend - easy to get hold of and made our stay wonderful

The description of the home on Airbnb is accurate. The home is about a 5 minute drive from the town of Woodstock, and while it is minimally surrounded by other homes, you feel quite secluded. The home was clean and well kept (for being such an old home, floors squeak throughout, which was what I expected). Fresh bed linens were already on the bed and fresh bathroom linens were hanging up. The kitchen had sufficient pots, pans and serve ware to cook with ( I cooked for a family gathering of 10 adults one evening). The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were sufficient for four adults and two kids (one has a bath which is good for bathing our toddler). The yard is large and good for kids running around. We brought our dog as well, who although we did not let off the leash enjoyed the space. The gas grill was already filled with propane, which we did use one of the nights as well as light a fire in the outdoor fire pit. The outdoor space where the above is located has plenty of seating. I noticed in one of the sheds that there are a variety of outdoor games you can set up. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Andy's home in Woodstock is a masterpiece of the true Woodstock, dating to the days when Parisian artists ended up in Woodstock and the surrounds for its shear natural beauty. The home is a singleton, standing as it did 100 years ago when it was built as a stone manor home in the mature forest. The rooms maintain their historic authenticity, are all beautifully furnished and generous in size and with all its stonework, gleaming wood floors and exposed beams the home extends a warm welcome throughout. Andy's family has preserved the authenticity, aesthetics and comfort of this historic place. Each of the very private 4 bedrooms exudes its own unique and special charm and deep comfort with beautiful white hotel quality linens making those deep country sleeps a deep pleasure. The grounds are very cared for with mature gardens and large bluestone terraces hugging 3 sides of the house so you can follow the sun and moon around all day and night and bask in the mature forest surround and sweet air. I was here for a month, mid August to mid September, and caught summer and early autumn and the home was divine in both seasons. The village center is just a mile away, and offers the best of the Hudson Valley's renowned local produce, so cooking in the Andy's chef's kitchen or grilling on the rear terrace became a gourmet experience. Our Whippets and we adored the fenced in 3 acres which includes a large meadow for romping and strolling and family soccer. The compound is completely private and there is no need to leave, with 40 acres of hiking property adjoining the fenced in acres, but the arts and culture of Woodstock are at your fingertips so Andy's place is a deeply historic and fun venue whether for a few days or a few months. Andy's caretaker Rich is a phone call away and keeps the property to a high level of maintenance. The aircon/heat system is flawless, the outdoor fire pit a destination on the cool Catskill evenings. Our family will definitely be back to Andy's place very soon.

What a wonderful house. Cozy, charming and quaint. A lovely, quiet location yet very convenient to Woodstock. A very well-stocked kitchen. And Andre, the host, could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

Beautiful house - exactly like the pictures on the website. Bedrooms were very spacious and comfortabe and we enjoyed several evenings with a fire in the frontroom. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen had every appliance, pot and pan, and utensil that we needed and then some! Our dog LOVED the fenced in garden and we all enjoyed our daily 3 mile walks to the old farm house recommended by Andre. Had some minor issues at the beginning but was very impressed with the fast response from Andre. He has my highest recmmendation - would love to return in summer or fall.

We loved staying in Andre's house. He house is very warm with many places to curl up with a book and watch beautiful scenery outside. The fenced in yard is perfect for canine and humans alike. We did not want to leave. Although we did not get to meet Andy in person he provided us with detailed information about the property and and the surrounding area. Andy replied to my text within minutes and accommodated my requests. Great host and great house.

Nutzerprofil von Andre

I grew up in Woodstock, NY around my parents' generation of artists, writers and musicians. For almost 20 years I built fine wooden yachts, then wrote a book, Polluting for Pleasure (W.W. Norton, 1993), about the environmental impact of two-stroke engines, such as outboard motors. My book transformed the marine industry, which is now dominated by much cleaner four-stroke engines, preventing ten Exxon-Valdez oil spills-worth of oil and gasoline spilled into US waterways every year. I finished my BA (1994) and MS (Environmental Science, 2001) at Bard College. Then I went to work at the environmental group Pete Seeger formed in 1969. First as Environmental Director, and then as Executive Director (), I helped build the organization up to $1.6 million/yr., and helped win a thirty-year battle with General Electric over the infamous Hudson River PCB spill. After resigning to write, I helped a friend run for congress, working in his campaign and raising funds. I am readying two novels for submission to literary agents, and have gone back to environmental work as Suncoast Waterkeeper, in the Sarasota area. I have three children and four grandchildren, one of whom studies biomedical research at U of Delaware. My partner is Gayle Reynolds, a Kentucky horsewoman, licensed interior designer and longtime political and environmental activist.
