About Christine Barker

I've enjoyed a diversified life with careers in Environmental science (which I studied), entertainment, real estate and design. I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climes! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.

Christine Barker purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Christine Barker chose Catskills

It is a well built classic Woodstock home with amazing woodwork, great angles, and many interesting details. I fell in love with it the moment I walked through the door! It's very private and set back in the woods, but it's minutes to the center of town. Stained glass windows everywhere. It's the perfect mountain home and I love to escape there whenever I can...and I love to see others create wonderful memories there as well!

What makes this chalet unique

As one of the oldest arts colonies and one of the most culturally rich small towns in America, Woodstock is also situated in one of the most protected and dramatic wildlife areas in the Northeast. No matter what you seek: culinary excellence, culture, summer concerts, adventure, hiking at its best!!! It all awaits you right here.

Our home is just a few minutes away from all the amenities and attractions of downtown Woodstock but secluded enough to truly feel like you are in your own private retreat.

Great Bachelorette/Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented the chalet for the weekend for a group of 12 for my best friend's bachelorette. We loved how cute and cozy the house was - the artistic touches and details really make it home. The kitchens are well equipped and there is ample storage for everything you might need to bring to the home. Towels/linens were clean and the beds were comfy. It was a bit difficult to heat the downstairs area that led out to the patio with the hot tub, but otherwise our stay was seamless. The owners are attentive to detail and make it easy for you to be comfortable. I would work with them/stay at this property again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us! The first few days of our stay, the weather was warm. We enjoyed the Great deck to hang out, large yard, hot tub, BBQ and some afternoon corn hole. The Guardian at Byrdcliffe made for a great hike as the weather chilled down. The town of Woodstock is charming with a great deal of local history. It's just a few miles from the house. The kitchen was well equipped for making meals, a bathroom on each floor, and queen beds in all four bedrooms. Susanna was very helpful and on top of the situation when high winds brought a power outage. There is plenty to do in the winter even without snow.

Best Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented out the main house and the zen cabin last weekend for my bachelorette party. We loved all of the artistic details the house had to offer. The owner had laminated directions to all of the television and air conditioning equipment. There was plenty of toilet paper and towels available. Everything was spotless and comfortable. The pictures dobt even do it justice. We couldn't be happier. We made so many fantastic memories in this gorgeous home. I will be coming back in years to come!

A Magical Wedding Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I first rented the adjoining Zen Cabin 5 years ago for a romantic weekend, and have always felt drawn to Woodstock and the property. When we decided to host an intimate wedding for close family and friends, this seemed like a it was meant to be.

Family stayed in the main house and cabin, while friends rented nearby cottages. The patio and yard were perfect for both the rehearsal dinner and reception, while the sloped yard in back was a fairytale ceremony setting.

The two kitchens in the big house were ideal in keeping catering warm for 30 people, and there were plenty of bathrooms and indoor nooks to catch a bit of quiet if you needed to. And the setting! So many beautiful details inside and out - we couldn't have been happier.

Susannah and the entire staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, and we plan on returning again!

A Fun Place

  • 5 of 5

A group of us went up for 5 nights, rented both the chalet and the zen cabin. We were very comfortable, and loved all the quirky little touches that made us feel at home. I must say that the beds/bedding were absolutely top notch. The owner was very accommodating and very responsive to any questions or requests I had during our stay. We were delighted with the wifi, as some of us had some work to do, and the fireplace was very cozy. I'd recommend it to all!

This is a year round paradise!

In summer enjoy water tubing or fly fishing on the Esopus, canoeing and Kayaking on the Hudson River, horseback riding, rock climbing, tennis, golf and bike around a beautiful reservoir. Visit the largest traditional Tibetan Monastery in the US, climb the beautiful Overlook Mountain or take a dip in one of the numerous water holes in the area.

The fall is absolutely gorgeous, and the Woodstock Film Festival always attracts a crowd. This is also a great time to enjoy apple picking, pumpkin carving and the wonderful foliage of the Catskills Mountains.

The winter offers plenty...Hunter Mountain is a skiers' paradise. Bellayre, Windham Mountain or Plattekill are also nearby. There's great sledding right in town on the aptly named Sled Hill. The iconic Town of Woodstock comes alive with lights over the holidays and is very picturesque.

The areas beautiful lakes, mountains, rivers, restaurants, shopping and cultural scene provide plenty to do whatever time of the year you visit, but you may just want to stay at your beautiful rental home and relax by the fire or take a soak in the hot tub!
