Need a Break from the City? Try a Vacation Rental in Woodstock


Whether you're trying to escape from the crowds of New York City or just looking for something different from your suburb, the Woodstock area and Catskill Mountains offer a peaceful, quite getaway perfect for staying in vacation rentals
That's especially true of the Kaaterskill Clove area, considered by many American writers, from James Fenimore Cooper to Mark Twain, to be one of the most beautiful spots they've ever seen.

Kaaterskill Cove is a scenic ravine in the Catskill Mountains. You'll find forest and waterfalls, hiking and solitude, peace and quite. You'll discover coves of cool mountain water, where the only sound you'll hear is the wind through the trees. You can get your fill of nature and then explore shops filled with handmade craft items created by area artisans, fruit and vegetable stands with produce you can use to cook in your Catskill vacation rental, old bookshops and quaint small towns.

The natural highlight of the area is Kaaterskill Falls, which are higher than Niagra Falls. Niobe Falls, a continuation of Kaaterskill Falls, has been painted by hundreds--if not thousands--of artists from the Hudson River School of Painting. You can stay in the heart of this legendary region. The Waterfall Vacation Home is a charming 2 bedroom, 2 bath Victorian-era home 12 miles from Woodstock, 8 miles from Saugerties and 10 miles from Catskill. It's also just 10 miles from Hunter Mountain, a popular spot for winter sports, and home to Rip Van Winkle, the sleepy woodsman from Washington Irving's famed story. Sit on the deck and enjoy your view of Niobe Falls as you contemplate your next adventure, or reflect on the wonderful day you just enjoyed. Escape to peace and quite soon--it's a trip you'll want to repeat.
