This large (master) bedroom has been renovated with guests in mind. It has "good vibes," as they say. The house itself has been the site of spiritual teachings. You can sit on the porch and enjoy nature or walk the meditation path on the slope behind the house. There is even a pair of binoculars to use.
It is also an excellent space to use as an office retreat.
There is a gazebo for guests to use, and one can sit and watch three large orange fish by the pond.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Mostly there is little interaction.
The house is just past the four corners of Rock City Road that leads out of the village and Glasco Turnpike (the road where the glass that was made on Overlook Mountain in the 1800s was carted west to the Hudson River). When you get to those corners, the mountain before you, everything gets quiet, poetic. You are less than a mile to town -- ideal for a 10-12 minute walk in most weather.
Woodstock was the home of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony, founded in the early 1900's and once home to the Arts Students League. Visitors enjoy the Byrdcliffe Guide shop, Kleinert-James, Woodstock Art Museum and Gallery, Fletcher Gallery, and the Elena Zang and James Cox galleries (short drives to Lake Hill and Willow), among others. Here are wonderful clothing shops, ice cream and yogurt, restaurants, a waterfall look-out and quaint spots, finds at Mower's Flea Market (seasonal). Check listings for theater and music -- at such as the Bearsville Theater (dining at the the restaurants there, overlooking the stream, are magical).
For many, the best thing is the nature -- why painters have come here for over a century. The many hikes can be found on the internet. Climbing Overlook Mountain takes only a few hours. Near its crescent are ruins of the old hotel and at the summit a fantastic view of the Catskills and a fire tower. Guardian Mountain gives another grand view. For an in-town nature walk, ask anyone for directions to the Comeau trail.
An important attraction is the spiritual aspect. Few people fail to visit the spectacular KTD Buddhist monastery opposite the Overlook trailhead. The Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper is less than a half hour drive away.
The Pine Hill Trailways bus that goes to New York City comes to the center of town.
It is a non-smoking home. People are asked to take their shoes off in the house. Thee are booties by the door but you might want to bring your own. Guests are asked not to bring food into the room.
