Please help me figure out the meaning of the phrase "woodsy home" in the following text:

You can see that as with Sneaky Sasquatch woodsy home, how you experience the updated game is up to you. You can hang out at a cafe or diner.

The phrase "woodsy home" may mean "a home that resembles woods" because in the game Sasquatch is a wild creature that steals items from nearby campsites. However, I am not sure about this.

    In this context, I think "woodsy" means a home that you would find in the woods, like a quaint, rustic little cabin, smelling of pine trees, cozy, surrounded by trees. – SarahT Apr 6 '20 at 1:07

It's in the dictionary:

woodsy
/ˈwʊdzi/
adjective: woodsy; comparative adjective: woodsier; superlative adjective: woodsiest
relating to or characteristic of wood or woodland.

It seems a common AmEng thing to make an adjective more friendly or diminutive by adding -sy to the end of it, for example "cutesy". You could just say something is cute, or in the woods, but "cutesy" and "woodsy" just sound more friendly and fun.
