Upstate New York is one of the best regions in the country for foodies, which is why so many people travel here to try new restaurants, have farm-to-table experiences, and join culinary tours to learn more about their favorite dishes. To embrace the foodie theme on your next trip, why not stay somewhere truly unique that is sure to satisfy your taste buds and sense of adventure?
Here are some details about the Glasco Woodstock, a 5.5-bedroom, three-bathroom vacation rental that offers all of this and much more.
The Glasco Woodstock can accommodate groups of up to 16 people and is situated on 16 sprawling acres of land with unobstructed views of Overlook Mountain. The historic home has a history that dates back to the mid-1800s and is surrounded by natural beauty. This idyllic escape has all of the modern comforts of home, plus lots of luxurious amenities to enjoy, such as an eight-person hot tub, screened porch, gas/charcoal grill, fire pits, hammocks, ponds, and a stream.
But what really makes this vacation rental unique are the add-on services that you can experience while staying here. With an advance request, you can forage for mushrooms on the property with the expert guidance of a Woodstock native and chef. Then, Chef Olesa will use your fresh pickings to cook a mushroom-themed feast, one you can either participate in the making of or simply enjoy.
Chef Olesa also guides dumpling and pizza-making experiences for guests, which is an absolutely perfect activity for a summer evening on the property. Learn new skills from this hands-on cooking experience or just hang back by the hot tub or fire pit while the gourmet meal is prepared for your enjoyment.
Beyond these onsite foodie experiences, Glasco Woodstock offers yoga, Pilates, massage, and other spa services for additional fees. You’ll have a 24-hour digital concierge at your service and will find locally minded products stocked at Glasco Woodstock. Grocery delivery service and pottery-making are also coming soon!
Past guests rate this vacation rental property very highly during all seasons of the year, especially when the fall foliage is at an all-time high. Every season has something unique to offer in terms of activities and scenery. Some other features of the home are Wi-Fi throughout the house, a Sonos sound system, laundry machines, fully equipped kitchen, and pantry essentials. Each of the bedrooms is unique and has its own type of charm, and there’s even a travel crib available if you have a small child in your group.
When you stay here, you’ll be just six minutes from the town of Woodstock and less than two hours from New York City. It’s a perfect weekend getaway from the city to really relax and have some new and different experiences with your favorite people.
There are lots of other fun things to do in the area when you stay here as well, such as the family-owned Westwind Orchard, the large environmental structure called Opus 40, and the scenic hike to the top of Overlook Mountain. Many Zagat-rated dining experiences, modern boutiques, Catskills Park, and world-class skiing are also near the property for when you feel like venturing out.
