Woodstock Overlook Mountain Nest(A)

Up on Woodstock's Overlook Mountain (yet only 3 miles from the center of town) sits "Byrdland," Woodstock's first LEED-certified home. Trails from the property lead to 500,000 acres of state land. Private room has full bath and full size sofa bed .


High up on Woodstock's Overlook Mountain (yet only 3 miles from the center of town) in a rustic and historic hollow, sits "Byrdland," Woodstock's first LEED-certified home, a standard in 'green' building and design. Owner/builder/host Rob Saffer helped design and build the house and can explain all that went into it, from its innovative woodstove heating system to eco-coatings made from cheese whey. The house is surrounded by 500,000 acres of the Catskill Forest Preserve with amazing trails right out the door. For additional fees, Rob will guide visitors through the forest to discover this historic Woodstock hollow, its old quarries and over mysterious 100 stone mounds, thought by archeologists to be ancient native cairns. He also leads seasonal mushroom foraging tours and snowshoeing excursions. Snowshoeing in winter, hiking in spring, mushroom foraging in the summer, leaf peeping in fall, life in Byrdland is magical.

This private room is on the first floor in the rear of the house for maximum privacy. Windows look out over the Catskill Forest Preserve. It has its own captive, private bathroom with a slate shower and cork floors. The sofa bed folds out to a double-sized bed. It is comfortable. There is a television with DirecTV in this room.

Wifi is available throughout the house. Mobile phone service is spotty, due to the rural location.

Coffee and a selection of teas will be offered in the morning.

Two cats share Byrdland with its owner so please be forewarned should you have allergies.

For more information on Byrdland, please see an article in the Woodstock Times, Decemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) edition - search: "A Home Story."



Byrdland is located amidst the 600,000 acre Catskill Forest Preserve with trailheads from the property.

Please leave shoes in mudroom and wear slippers inside the house. The house is nearly 100% sustainable so we ask guests to use water and energy consciously - turn off lights, shorter showers, etc. Also, please do not use the wood stove or cooking stove without permission - it's a safety issue. Thanks and don't forget your slippers (and hiking boots).



Rob, as a host and friend, is simply incredible. His attention and dedication to make you feel comfortable at his place goes above and beyond. His house is amazingly beautiful, clean and organized; the fact this house was built by Rob is simply the best. The area around the house is gorgeous with hiking trails and views from the valley. Rob has so much knowledge of the area and carries so much wonderful stories to tell us that we were/are blessed of meeting him and having him guiding and introducing us to the Catskills region. An amazing soul with an amazing house in an amazing mountain property, with the add-on of the cute company of his loyal and sweet cat! Note: I can't leave this note without saying something about his unbelievable garden: the cherry tomatoes, the regular tomatoes, the peppers from his garden are simply delicious!!

We arrived at Woodstock Overlook Mountain and were immediately amazed. Once we met Rob, we clicked and knew we would have a great weekend staying in his beautiful home. The bedroom was perfect with a private bathroom, big screen tv and mountain view. Around his home are nature walks, hiking, garden and areas to sit and watch the stars at night. He had great coffee in the morning which led to even better conversation. Rob is a A++ host and we were very happy to have met him. We will be coming back to Woodstock and staying at Robs sometime in the near future!

We had a terrific experience staying at Robs house for four days. He was very welcoming and quite helpful with info about local attractions and restaurants. The house and grounds are beautiful and very comfortable and our room and bath clean and private. I would highly recommend this location to anyone visiting the area.

My husband and I had a fabulous time this weekend in Woodstock and really appreciated Rob's hospitality. We were a little late (30 min or so) in arriving because we hiked up to the fire tower on Overlook Mountain. Even then Rob was friendly and polite. He spent time showing us the room and giving us advice on where to go for dinner. His cats are sweet and cuddly. We slept on a pull-out couch in a private room with our own bathroom on the first floor. It was very spacious and clean. The property and house are beautiful! Would definately stay again.

My partner Mike and I had an excellent weekend in Woodstock. We very much enjoyed staying at Rob's place--he was a great host--gracious, attentive, kind. We enjoyed our conversations with him. The space is beautiful and light. We especially loved the hike right out the door up to a beautiful overlook. The two cats were so sweet. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Woodstock.

Rob was a great host. He gave us some great suggestions of things to do and places to see, which helped us plan a very enjoyable July 4th weekend upstate. He offered us tea & oatmeal in the mornings, and even let me borrow his fleece jacket on a chilly night when we went to watch fireworks. Bonus - His home is conveniently located near downtown Woodstock, where you can find some quaint coffee shops, restaurants and gift-shops.

House was beautiful and very clean. Rob was a friendly and helpful host. Room was very private with an amazing view of the wilderness behind the house. Saw a family of deer at sunrise from the bedroom windows, and bluebirds in the afternoon. It's a 7 min drive to downtown Woodstock. Highly recommend the house and host!

I lived in Brooklyn for 25 years while working as a creative director and marketing executive for companies like MTV Networks, ABC/Disney, and Edelman. I made music videos and commercials, produced earth-shattering live events, consulted huge companies on how to improve their products and services, and even produced live music concerts, mostly jazz. But I never built a house, until I moved to Woodstock, a place where magic happens. About ten years ago, I moved to Woodstock, found a piece of land and was able to fulfill my lifelong dream to design and build a 'green' house. I am proud to say that the house, Byrdland, is the first LEED-certified home in Woodstock. It is one of my greatest achievements. And, I've decided to share it with you and other Air BnB clients.

I love to hike in the area, forage for mushrooms and spend countless hours in the vegetable garden or working on the landscape. I also love playing ping pong and have a table in the basement for those who are game. I love to grow food and cook it, mostly South Asian styles. And, of course, I love sharing my house with interesting, creative folks.
