Property type house

About the property

Charming cottage in town a quiet, hidden road off the beaten path.

The Sled Hill House offers the serenity of Woodstock; quiet and peaceful yet right in town. The outdoors is beautifully landscaped with gardens, fire pit, BBQ and a secluded outdoor dining area with a completely fenced in yard. The two downstairs bedrooms each have one Queen bed and there is a Queen size comfy air mattress in the upstairs loft with a fold down couch for extra sleeping space.

Perfect for a couple (or two) with a dog or child but also spacious enough for a larger group (e.g. girlfriend's getaway, a group of friends attending a wedding or family reunion nearby).

Easy access...just a two-minute walk to town center and the bus stop. The house is approximately 1600 square feet with Cathedral ceiling, nice light, large upstairs loft area, 2 bedrooms, kitchen with all new appliances, 1 full bathroom, fenced in yard, back and side patio. Air conditioning in all bedrooms during the summer and a Vermont Castings wood stove in the living room in addition to an electric heater in the main room and both bedrooms to keep you warm on those chilly evenings.

Accessible by bus, no car needed but two parking spaces available. You’ll love the privacy and the accessibility to town. It's perfect for couples, families (with kids), and the fenced in yard is great for furry friends (pets).

No car needed. We are a two-minute walk from the bus stop and wonderful restaurants and all that town has to offer. Located on a quiet, hidden road off the beaten path, it is a close, short walk to everything; restaurants, theater, farmers market, nightlife, health food store, hiking and the Mill Stream (our local swimming hole).

The house is roomy, open and bright. There is a large screen smart TV in the main living room. The upstairs is a large loft complete with games and puzzles and the open space is perfect for yoga, exercise, or just a great place to hang out and read or watch a movie. The upstairs loft can also act as a playroom, third bedroom or just a great place to hang out while reading or watching a movie. The Levon Helm Barn is nearby as are many local restaurants, nightlife and galleries. The Mill Stream swimming hole is just around the corner as is the local bus stop.

I hope you enjoy my home and our town as much as I do, and respect it. There is a deck and porch areas but please no smoking inside. I do allow dogs and the yard is fenced in but please do not let them dig up the garden.

You have full access to the house, fenced in yard and private parking spots for two vehicles. (for HITS guests, oversized vehicles can fit in driveway and there is additional available parking on the street.

About Dave Leonard

I have lived in the area since 1989 and the house was built in the early 90's. I lived there with my children during their formative years and have since moved to the outskirts of town with my two daughters Eva (15) and Luci (12). I am a hands-on Dad during the week and I DJ weddings locally on most weekends. I also have my own weekly radio show recorded locally and syndicated nationally. I like to bike, play softball and enjoy landscaping and working on the yard in the warmer seasons.

Dave Leonard purchased this house in 1999

Why Dave Leonard chose Woodstock

I love the location, how well built it was, I knew the architect and builder personally and the high ceilings and how private it felt yet it was so close to town.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. No vehicle needed as it's one block to town or the Mill Stream. Unique design, bright and open, beautifully landscaped private. Built in the mid 90s by one of the best builders in town, it is solid and spacious, clean and cozy.

Lovely house warm and cozy with a perfectly timed White Christmas as well - we loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over Christmas- the snow arrived on cue on Christmas Day and we were warm as toast thanks to the wood burning stove.

Location was perfect and we were only yards from shops and restaurants and cafes

The house was well equipped with a great recreation area upstairs.

It was a very good experience and we would love to go back sometime Woodstock is a lovely town.

Quaint, quiet cottage close to town.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage over the Thanksgiving weekend. The property was clean and tidy, and as presented in the photos. The fireplace is perfect for keeping the house warm and cosy over winter nights, with both an upstairs and downstairs lounging area to hang out. When you do venture out, the cottage is extremely close to town with a 5 minute walk to most restaurants, cafes, shops etc. Also walking distance from the bus stop if traveling into town that way. Owners were helpful and responsive, we'd recommend to stay and we'd stay again next time in town.

Charming cozy fully-equipped pet-friendly “home away from home”

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property was perfect for our mini-vacation to Woodstock NY for the 3 of us: me, my husband and our doggie. The house was spotless and nicely appointed with cozy comfy furnishings, lovely prints and artwork on the walls, fresh bed linens and towels, WiFi, and 2 large flatscreens with access to a number of online entertainment programs such as Netflix, Amazon, HBO, etc. The kitchen is fully-equipped and there is a washer & dryer which came in handy when we needed to dry out our soaked jackets & hats after a day of torrential rain & winds. We did use the heating system while there and it worked well and fast to take the chill away.

We quickly felt at-home here! The outdoor yard area was also very lovely and there were many amenities there which we never used (due to lack of time & rainy weather one day) including an outdoor fire pit and gas grill. I could tell that the gardens must be particularly beautiful in the spring & summer as they were still showing off some late season blossoms & changing foliage colors during our visit.

There were sweet touches of hospitality throughout the property: lovely chrysanthemums in stoneware pots as we entered the property; seasonal pumpkins by the doorway; American flag with peace symbol where the stars would be; and, tiny pine cone candles in the bathroom and living room for ambience (and sadly, we never used these). There’s a wood stove in the living room too! However, we also didn’t use that. But it was there if we wanted to! We were usually pretty pooped out after spending our days hiking in the beautiful nearby mountains.

The property owner (Dave) was super responsive before, during, and even after our stay. I always felt a sense of comfort coming from him. He understood we were there to get away and he treated us kindly, focused on service, and even stopped by one day to show me how to use the flatscreen entertainment options there.

The location was also perfect. We walked to and from town every night for dinner, and we enjoyed shopping in town during the day it rained. It was just a few short blocks to walk to town where we also enjoyed live music. But it was always sweet and comforting to come back to the peace & quiet of 10 Sled Hill! We all (including our doggie) loved our stay there and only wished it could have been longer! We hope to visit again!
