A 100 year old Woodstock artist house, full of books and paintings — my year-round home for nearly twenty years — less than 1/2 mile from the center of town on a quiet road only 200 yards from Woodstock's best swimming hole. Sunny lawns and stone patio. Ideal as a place to stay without a car.

The space

An airy bedroom with mountain views; a yoga room; a writer's living room lined with books, wood-beamed ceiling; an elegant dining room; an eat-in kitchen; and enough space outside to sunbathe, play badminton, or just laze around the grill.

Guest access

Attached to the main house is a small 1950's apartment with a separate entrance where I sometimes stay. This in no way interferes with guests, who have otherwise complete and exclusive use of the main house and grounds.

Interaction with guests

Happy to meet you at the house if you let me know your approximate arrival time — or at the Woodstock bus stop if you don't come by car. I usually go to the city at weekends but sometimes stay in the attached apartment when the house is rented. I look forward to meeting my guests, but it's your call if you prefer complete privacy. However, I'm always available 24/7 by phone.

Other things to note

Fully tiled bathroom with classic cast iron tub (and hand shower), modern vanity, and wide countertop.

Graham' s home is charming and a great size for 2 people. it's very relaxing to be there, surrounded by beautiful trees. the nearby swimming hole is great, and it's about a quarter mile from town (easy walk, except no sidewalks). Graham was kind enough to pick us up from the bus station, and give us a good orientation to the house.

It was a treat to stay in Graham's unique home. It was cosy and comfortable, particularly the living room lined with books. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. It was quiet and easy to walk into Woodstock. Graham was friendly and prompt in replying throughout. Would be very happy to stay here again.

Graham's home was the perfect weekend escape from the city. His home was full of character and he was a fantastic host. We look forward to returning to Woodstock soon and will definitely look to stay at this house again. The only regret was we didn't get to hear more interesting stories from the man himself.

We loved our stay at Graham's house. It is just like the pictures - full of character, quiet, relaxing. He has a great book collection, including ones he has written himself! The house is located very close to town, surrounded by trees. Graham was very responsive and was there to meet us on arrival. We were sad to leave!

We loved our stay at Graham's beautiful Woodstock home. He made us feel so welcome the moment we arrived. Graham's home has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. His home is super close to town, but feels very secluded being on Ohayo Mountain Rd. Thank you again Graham!

I've lived in Woodstock since the Festival days (I played with many of the great bands including Van Morrison, the Muldaurs, and Full Tilt Boogie). Now I'm primarily an author and illustrator — feel free to check me out on Amazon and my website:
I love hosting interesting people and enjoy Airbnb-ing myself when travelling for for tango.
