Overview

About the property

Just 2 hours North of NYC & 5 miles from Woodstock NY-

The Glenford House offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6-8. Hot Tub, outdoor fire pit, ping-pong table, fireplace, gas grill, deck with amazing views. Good cell phone reception and wifi. Sorry, no pets.

Experience the serenity and beauty of the Catskills from our newly renovated home with views of the Ashokan Reservoir and Shawangunk Mountains. We designed The Glenford House to be a peaceful retreat with the rustic charm of a country cottage and modern amenities of city living. A place to enjoy slow and simple pleasures like cooking for loved ones in a light-drenched kitchen or reading books you've been meaning to for much too long.

Enjoy the quiet and privacy of the country, complete with swimming holes and hikes near by, while also having easy access to great restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, arts and music, and movies just ten minutes away in great towns like Woodstock, Phoenicia, Saugerties, and Kingston.

You’ll have an eat-in cook’s kitchen with five burner range, an airy living room with cathedral ceilings and a huge farm table, second floor master bedroom with adjacent room that doubles as a writing or yoga studio- with water views, two other lovely bedrooms- one first floor queen, and a second floor full sized bed with water views, two full bathrooms, one on each floor, a bright sun room with three walls of windows, TV room with basic cable (24 channels) plus Roku with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and Wii, and a two level deck/porch with a Weber Genesis grill and ping-pong table. Plus, ample windows and water and mountain views from almost every room imbue the house with a light and airy feeling. Also, relax and enjoy a newly installed hot tub on the lower patio.

Kitchen: Our eat-in cook's kitchen comes complete with a comfy breakfast nook looking out over the Ashokan, a five-burner gas stove with a double oven, dishwasher, a deep farm sink, and ample supplies. We love to cook, and we've filled the kitchen to the brim with everything from stainless steel and non-stick frying pans in a range of sizes, to specialty items like Le Crueset lasagna pans, a double boiler, pancake griddle, and a Keurig coffee maker (stocked with K-cups) alongside a french press and standard coffee maker, and a well-stocked pantry. And just outside the door is a Weber Genesis gas grill on the deck. We also supply you with a full kitchen inventory before you arrive for planning purposes.

Entertainment: Our TV room comes with a flat-screen television with cable; Roku with access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime; DVD player and video library; and Wii. We also have games, many books, and a ping-pong table.

Outdoor Activities: If you like to get outside, it’s hard to imagine a better place to do it. In the winter, enjoy great skiing and snowboarding with Hunter, Belleayre, and Windham just 25 to 45 minutes away. For cross-country skiers, the Mountain Trails cross country ski center, with a network of maintained trails, is also easily accessible. Go swimming in the many local swimming holes, tubing down the Esopus, hiking in the Catskills state parks, climbing in the Gunks, fishing in the reservoir, zip-lining at Hunter Mountain—the list goes on and it’s all close. And if you’re a cyclist, we’re happy to provide challenging routes full of rollers and hills or easy tours showcasing the extraordinary beauty of the region—you name it.

Discovering the Catskills: To help you get the most out of your stay, we've put together a guide to the region with favorite restaurants and things to do, maps to activities, places to get supplies, and suggested highlights of the area.

While we love dogs, we maintain a low allergen environment, and do not allow pets in our vacation rental.

About Deborah Osherow

We have lived in the Catskills since 1987 and raised two children here. We fell in love with the Catkills and and never left!

Deborah Osherow purchased this house in 2014

Why Deborah Osherow chose Catskills

We have always admired the mesmerizing view of this property. It's on our route if we take the backroads into Woodstock. When it came up for sale, Deborah awoke one morning and 'knew' we had to buy it!

What makes this house unique

We were lucky enough to be able to purchase the property from Peter and Lisa fully furnished and with all the amenities. We love the modern/rustic style, its great location, and of course the awesome view of the Ashokan Reservoir and the mountains beyond.

Incredible home with incredible views!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect home for a perfect family getaway. The home was just right for a break from the city. The vista is stunning and the home's peaceful setting gave complete respite. We loved the spacious, light-filled kitchen complete with all of the amenities of home and enjoyed dinners on the grill each night. Woodstock is very close with access to great restaurants, but we preferred to cook at home! Everything about this home was just right. The home met our expectations and more and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend. We Loved our stay!!

Great Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my four friends since childhood stayed here for a weekend getaway. The house was very comfortable, warm and light filled. Everything we needed was provided and we had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains and the scenery. We enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub. The owner was very helpful and wonderful to work with. Even though it was 10 degrees out all weekend, we were so comfortable in the house and enjoyed spending time in Woodstock , local restaurants and the surrounding area. We hope to return to this house together again.

Good family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and functional especially the kitchen. Well done for having everything you need to cook and easily findable and accessible!! Great for kids and infants. They have child safe gates and a good layout on the bottom floor for a crawling baby. The sunroom and balcony overlooking the reservoir was lovely to hang out in especially in the mornings when the sun rises. For the price it is a great find and the hosts were most responsive and accommodating. My only comment would be the beds were on the smaller and harder side and difficult to get a good night sleep. But hey we're used to that with two kids under 3! Thanks Deborah for a welcoming stay.

Wonderful stay for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three other ladies had the pleasure of staying in this house for three nights. The owner was a pleasure to work with. The house was just the right size, not too big, but plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kitchen is stocked with everything one would need for cooking, and staples like sugar and mayonnaise were provided. The view is unbeatable. Would love to come back again.

Great house, great property! Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and 2 kids ages 4 and 7) loved our 3 night stay at the Glenford house. Everything was clean and fresh and the beds are super comfortable. It is a great location for going to Woodstock and saugerties but also a great place to hang out. We made good use of the hot tub, fireplace and fire pit. Would definitely recommend!

Awesome experience for families with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Glenford house during President's day long weekend and it was a very relaxing and peaceful experience.

On arrival, we were pretty surprised to see a nice welcoming letter and a bottle of wine !

The house was very clean, organized and pretty open with big windows so you get a good sunlight everywhere. It had a very well stocked kitchen - so if you are travelling with small kids it's pretty convenient. We were 3 families with kids/babies ranging from 9 months to 7 years old and they had lots of fun running around the house and playing :-)

The bedding and towels were very clean and hotel quality. We requested for airbeds to fit everyone and the owners made sure to arrange it in required bedrooms before our arrival.

We also used the hot tub and it was one of the best things !

Thanks Deborah and David ! The Glenford house is a charm and would definitely recommend it to others.
