About Dina Kushnir
I fell in love with the land and bought it knowing it needs a lot of work. a year later I am happy to share it with others. I call it 'Olive Oasis' it is an Oasis of Peace from the outside world. I am a movement artist and use Olive Oasis to teach meditation, yoga and personal growth workshops. I see this place also as a retreat space for artists, writers and nature lovers together with family that enjoy indoor outdoor magic.
Dina Kushnir purchased this Chalet in 2011
Why Dina Kushnir chose Shokan?
I was looking into the Woodstock area for two main reason, one it being close to New York City where I live just two hours away and I am in a different land. The other reason is the beauty of the mountains and the woods with skiing , hiking, swimming and enjoying nature in so many more ways, all available and close by. The peace and quiet drew me and my meditation practice enriched by the land.
What makes this Chalet unique?
I love the peace and quiet and the view from the back deck, just to sit there read, watch the trees, the deers, and the sun set over the mountain, I also enjoy the fine restaurants and shops of Woodstock area. I hike and walk along the Ashokan Reservoir and cross country ski on the road by my house. Mostly I enjoy the quiet and the changing beauty in every season.
Dina has created such a beautiful and inviting space. You can tell that she’s put a lot of thought and intention into making the space feel special and open. We had a bachelorette “retreat” where we enjoyed the fire pit, nights in the hot tub (the best part!), and Woodstock and apple picking during the day. The kitchen was well stocked with modern appliances and lots of pans and dishes for cooking meals.
Another reviewer mentioned the construction. While it was different from the photos, it didn’t impair our views or experience. The property is large, so there were a lot of outdoor spaces for us to enjoy.

Upon turning 50, I headed up to the mountains with a few girlfriends to celebrate. We grilled, hiked Peekamoose Mountain, enjoyed downtown, relaxed on the patios as the sun set, soaked in the hot tub, watched Netflix, chilled by the fire pit at night & enjoyed an early outdoor yoga practice before we left the Olive Oasis. What a delightful weekend with friends.

I and my writers' group came here for a few days to focus on our work for a while, and this was the perfect site. The property extends for quite a ways in one direction, and there are stone-marked paths through it that end in little meditation nooks everywhere. The house itself is lovely and well-kept. The only not-so-great thing was the low water pressure in the shower, but for a few days it was fine. We all got lots of writing done, and came home refreshed and recharged. Very recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay at Olive Oasis. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The location is nice and secluded on a dead end street so very little traffic.
About 20 minutes or so drive to Woodstock so close enough but still away from it all.
I can't comment on the hot tub because we didn't get a chance to use it but it was certainly a nice-to-have.
Dina was very easy to work with and we hope to return again soon!

Booking - response was fast, payment was simple and the instructions were detailed and clear.
The Basics - the accommodation was as advertised and everything worked, kitchen well stocked, comfortable beds, pleasantly decorated, spacious & relaxing interior, open, comfortable and well lit living space with plenty of natural light.
The Location - nestled in the woods, plenty of privacy and truly a little slice of "back to nature". A short drive to get groceries plus a small selection of restaurants and diners. The Chocolate store in Shokun is worth a visit too...
The hot tub is worth a mention, lovely to bask in the warm water with a great view with snow all around. There is also a great outside decked area with plenty of seating for warmer months with a small fire pit for chilly evenings.
Overall - would definitely recommend this for a short or longer stay if you want to chill out in comfort, a lovely cozy and friendly environment with everything you need to enjoy staying in or exploring the area.

My husband and I were looking for a place to get away after the holidays and just chill. This was the PERFECT place to do just that. The house is extremely well equipt and spotlessly clean. There was nothing we were in need for. The house was so welcoming and the vibe just felt good. Yoga mats, yoga/meditation loft, really nice bathroom, comfortable beds, washer and dryer, Gas fireplace- so nice! The outside space was amazing. We did a lot of dreaming of renting this house in the nicer weather with friends. That being said, winter at Olive Oasis is divine. We used the hot tub a ton - really really great. The fire pit got put to good use as well. We sat by the fire with glasses of scotch for an entire day. It was heaven. We were looking for a secluded property. When we pulled up to the house we were initially concerned because there is a house right next door. That concern was quickly put to rest as we realized that the house and the out door space is situated perfectly, so you really don't notice at all the neighboring house at all. The hot tub in on the opposite side of the house, so you have complete privacy. Even at the fire pit, you don't see the neighboring property. I did however think about the warmer months, if a group of friends were hanging out around the fire at night (music, laughter, talking, etc...), if that would be a problem or not? This place is magical. You can't go wrong renting here. We will absolutely be back. Thank you Dina for creating this amazing space and sharing it!

This is a great space and we will definitely be coming back. We have rented several other places in the area for getaway weekends and this was by far our favorite. Two bedrooms downstairs and a loft upstairs. Kitchen with a ton of space and a nice island. The backyard was our favorite part though... Hot tub, nice sized grill, stone patio, fire pit. It was nice to kick back and relax in such a great place. The rental process was a breeze and the owner outlines everything you need to know about the house. I would recommend this in a heartbeat. We'll definitely be back!
