Includes all comforts of modern living, this is the place to either get away from it all or to celebrate an unforgettable get-together with friends and family. Le Colibri offers arguably the most spectacular views in the Catskills. The photos give you a sense, but to really appreciate their splendor you have to come and see for yourself - you are sitting on top of the world. The only other sign of civilization is some sparkling lights at night, on Overlook Mountain, across the valley.
Nobody can see you, and you are surrounded by nature's splendor. Le Colibri is what you hope to find after a long hike - except here you arrive via a private, majestic driveway. We cherish the Le Colibri paradox: Even though you are fully immersed in nature, you are only a three-minute drive away from enchanting Woodstock. The village is welcoming and fun in its decidedly alternative spirit. Good restaurants, cafes, and boutiques abound, the pace is leisurely and the people of Woodstock are chatty. Enjoy a stroll down Tinker Street while listening to live music and relishing the town's 'Sixties' spirit, all the while spotting the occasional celebrity - back in the day Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston would summer down the road from Le Colibri. Woodstock is the home of many artists and musicians and is increasingly being discovered by the hip and trendy. So whether you just want to buy the paper in the morning, dip down to town for a lunch or dinner, or knock on Valerie's door to pick up a home-baked strawberry-rhubarb pie, the village is right there for you, and who knows who you might bump into?
Le Colibri consists of a three-story Main House and a separate two-story Spa House. The two are connected by a large deck featuring a generous pool (open from mid-May through Nov. 1st). The pool is heated, but the seasons dictate the pool temperature, so before July 1st and after September 15th only the hearty souls swim. The deck is made of high-end composite - so no splinters! - and features a large grill station. The grill is connected to the house gas, so no fiddling with gas bottles or worrying about running out of gas. The deck furniture includes two mahogany pool lounges, a dining table with a large umbrella, an Adirondack seating group for four, and a hammock.
The entrance to the Main House welcomes you with its cathedral ceiling. There is a comfortable bench where you can take off your boots in the winter, and store your ski equipment in the adjacent, generously proportioned closet. Off the entrance is the entertainment room, with a working fireplace, a brand new 60' Samsung HD TV, couches, an alcoved home office (with our powerful wireless router), a wide-plank wooden floor, and a terrace to sit and enjoy the view. Behind the entertainment room is the ground floor bedroom featuring French doors and a hand-made, solid cherry Le Grange bed with an adjunct Porcelanosa bathroom, turning this into a lovely mini-suite. A grand staircase leads up to the second floor, opening onto the living room which has another working fireplace, an ample leather couch and chairs, a music and library alcove, and magnificent views.
The living room opens onto the generous kitchen with its modern appliances, including an induction stove-top, an oven, and two refrigerators (main and beverages). The kitchen is fully equipped and has ample cabinet space. It is framed by a counter island with high-chair seating for four, and a dining alcove with a beautiful dining table and spectacular mountain views. Also off the living room is a wooden terrace, the perfect place to sit in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise over the Hudson Valley.
On clear days you can see as far as the Berkshires - we are in the Catskills! Behind the living room are two lovely bedrooms. One features a charming four-post Queen-size bed (shown in the photos) and looks out over the pool area. The bedroom next to it is the same size (also with a Queen size bed) and looks onto the garden and Bocci court. The second bathroom (shown), with its modern design, is right across from the bedrooms. A spiral staircase brings you up to the generously proportioned Master Bedroom under the roof. The MB features a new, natural-fiber King size mattress (all mattresses in the house are new and natural fiber), ample closet and storage space, and a TV. En suite is the beautiful and bright Master Bathroom with a bubble-stream tub and a natural-light flooded shower. Making your way back down and across the pool deck will take you to the Spa-House - and here you are in for a treat, the piece-de-resistance! The grand room is dominated by luxurious leather couches and walls of windows granting 180-degree views.
Sink into these chairs with a good glass of wine and you know that this world is not such a bad place after all. In the summer you can open four large French doors and enjoy the breeze and the sound of silence - or listen to your favorite music on the ample stereo system. The grand room of the Spa House has its own terrace with a full range of magnificent Catskill mountains views. Downstairs from the grand room is the large, fully tiled garage.
The original owner of the property, a modern gentleman, kept his 1976 Rolls Royce convertible here. You can still use it as a garage, especially in the winter. But chances are, you will have too much fun playing pool on the perfectly kept pool table or exercising on the gym equipment to even notice that it is meant as a garage. Outside you'll find a vast, open lawn with two beautiful birch trees, tremendous oak trees standing sentinel, and of course the stroll down to our private pond. The pond is situated in the lower part of the property, almost tucked away, and very much in its own, unperturbed world. This is the magic garden where you expect a fairy to whisper sweet secrets into your ear at any moment. Take the kids for a rowboat ride on the pond.
Watch the leisurely goldfish. Have a picnic at the shaded table with your bare feet caressed by the deep, lush moss. Feel eternity and timelessness. Back at the house, the Bocci court beckons, and the beautiful garden. But maybe your favorite thing to do will be to sit on the cushions by the outdoor fire pit, see the sparks fly into the night, and take in the glow of the mountains. Winter: Skiing: Hunter and Belleayre 30-40 minutes drive. Magnificent cross-country trails nearby.
Please note that the driveway is sloped. While we will have it plowed and sanded for you, please be prepared and bring snow chains for your tires.

It was such a pleasure staying at this property. This home boasts some of the Best Views in the Catskills. We saw as far the Berkshires and Vermont. We were lucky enough to be staying here during some a moon and the pictures we took are amazing. The town of Woodstock is one of the nicest little Upstate NY towns by far. Very hospitable especially during these covid times we are in. This home is quite unique, with plenty of space for all to enjoy. We stayed in December, but I would imagine it would be even lovelier here in the warmer months, having the pool and lake below the property. We especially enjoyed our time in the second part of the property, listening to music and playing games. The views from this room were breathtaking. All of the bedrooms were furnished with lovely linens and furnishings. Bathrooms, all quite nice for sure. The kitchen and dining area were very spacious as well. Communication with booking and check in all went smoothly. Overall, anyone looking to stay in the Woodstock area, should highly consider this property. If we had one negative thing to say, it would be that the main house was not quite as clean as we would have liked it to be. Upon arrival, there were counters and floors that we needed to clean first before we even unpacked our belongings. That being said, it was a wonderful time away and we would definitely go back. Stay well :)

Had a great weekend enjoyed every part of the property. Rachel and Goetz could not have been nicer and went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed Christmas at the house. Wonderful place and spectacular views and a must see in person!

This was my second stay at the property and it was even more wonderful this time around. The views are incredible, the house is well appointed and comfortable. Our group enjoyed the pool, the fire pit, the pool table, the grill, bocci court, pond and row boat. There are so many spaces and things at this property to enjoy! Can’t wait to come back.

Le Colibri offered us the perfect family getaway. We started to relax and enjoying ourselves from the moment we arrived. The views are amazing whether you are in the house, pool area or recreation house. We spent hours at the pool and were in the center of beautiful natural and landscaped surroundings. We even caught fish in the pond on the home's premises. We loved the privacy and fact we were also so close to town and recreational options. Rachel was always helpful and available whenever we had any questions. Thank you for a relaxing time at the chalet. We plan on returning.

Beautiful property, truly unique construction and attention to detail. Sprawling views in most rooms, and spa/side house was a real treat for those in the group that wanted to stay up and enjoy the phenomenal record collection without waking up those who were sleeping in the main house. Will definitely be back, ideally when the pool is open (or if a hot tub is added!). Highly recommended.

This was a perfect getaway for our family of four. The grounds are beautiful and felt very secluded, yet we were only minutes from the charming town of Woodstock. The house is well-stocked and includes so many amenities. Some days we just stayed home because there was so much to enjoy right on the property!
