If you love kitsch, chachke, psychedelic colored shower stalls, 50's kitchens, Kate Pierson, woods, bonfires and creeks, head out to Kate's Lazy Meadown just outside of Woodstock, NY. This funky motel is not for someone seeking a pristine boring hotel, this is for people with a sense of adventure who love the zanier things in life. This is a remote-ish area and you have to be a self entertaining sort of person who doesn't need a full service hotel.
Like Somerville, MA reviewer, I too met a friend from Boston at the Rhinecliff train station having come from NYC. I booked my room last minute and was greeted when I got there by a friendly guy who showed us around the place (including some rooms that were not even finished yet). Our suite was spectacular. It was 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and it was funky thru and thru! It had a fully equipped 50's style pink GE kitchen and being a chef, I can tell you there was everything you need to whip up a faboo meal!
The property is beautiful, woodsy with a great stream out back. It is kind of in the middle of nowehere, but some of us love that kind of getaway! And there is plenty to do, we had a meal at the CIA in Hyde Park, toured Woodstock, and Kate recommended this breakfast place in Phonecia (sp?) a small town right next to Mt. Tremper that had the MOST amazing breakfast! It is listed on the door of the rooms.
Hope on the cosmic wagon train and get ur booty to Kate's Lazy Meadow!
