Our unique, solo-glamping campsite is located on our property (on a remote spot with total privacy), just feet from state land (approx. 9000 acres). From the parking area, it's a short walk (about the length of two football fields) to the site. There is a state access parking area close and hiking trails to the river and to a few waterfalls. Secluded, peaceful, and quiet. Enjoy time hiking or just relaxing by the campfire. Perfect for a couple's weekend getaway.
“My wife, 3.5 month-old, and I had a fantastic fall weekend at Shannon and Russell's geodome! Kudos to Russell who has built a really wonderful and unique place and I hope we can get back soon. It's just far enough away to feel secluded and private, but close enough that it's easy to get back. We really enjoyed the golf cart rides to and from the dome site, very fun! As a cook, I especially enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen which had everything I needed. Just plan to bring ice and whatever food you'd like to make. Really nice grill, gas burner, and fire pit for the meals I made at the site. We made a lovely fire on the second night too, which was really nice. It was chilly in the early AM (around 40), but we were nice and toasty in the dome. Even my babe was happy and loved looking at all the trees and hearing the birds in the morning. I second the other review about having some slippers or flip flops for getting around the site. Minimal power at the site except for one lamp, an overhead light, and one USB dock for phone charging. Definitely leave your laptop at home, and (at least for me) I found service to be a bit spotty, so you might want to bring something to play music that isn't dependant on it. Otherwise, while in the area we did a couple of hikes with our baby in a carrier, including the trail to Denton and Mullet Brook falls, which was really great. The trailhead is just a few minutes away. In short, a great place to stay for exploring the Southern Catskills!”
Cozy apartment with old world charm nestled in the heart of Monticello. Steps away from restaurants, post office, and the local library. 7 minute walk to the Shortline bus station. Walking distance to shopping, banks, and so much more. Very convenient for a family getaway or local meetings in the area. Use both bedrooms or just one.
Set on over 50 acres, bordering a thousand acres of state land, this renovated barn is the perfect setting for a country getaway! Get away from the stress of everyday life and relax in this quiet country retreat. Limited cell service and no internet is an opportunity to enjoy a hike in nature, read a book, relax by the wood stove, or watch the cranes on the pond. If you’re looking for a peaceful country setting within 30 minutes of some of the best Hudson valley has to offer, you’ve found it!
“There really isn’t any place quite like The Barn. We made our reservation last minute, as we were coming from the city and hadn’t decided to look for an airbnb until around 6pm. Lauren answered within minutes and promptly went to set up The Barn with everything we could possibly need for our short escape from New York City. She even typed out explicit directions so that we could figure out how to reach the property in the dark, being that it is at least a half mile off the main road and there is no service past the turnoff. Once we had arrived, we found ourselves stocked with logs for the wood stove in one of the most beautiful converted spaces we’ve had the pleasure of staying in. The dark wood is so warm and cozy, and we found ourselves happy to choose from a collection of DVDs (a lot of great 90s/early 2000s flicks!) rather than Netflix or HBO. It was so nice to be able to disconnect without internet or WiFi, knowing we could access it with intention by driving to the main road. Instead of checking our instagrams in the morning or being subjected to the bleak morning news, we woke to the pleasure of the rising sun and smell of coffee as we sat on the private patio overlooking a pond, in which a family of ducks have made their home. Lauren was happy to answer all of our questions, as well as recommended some hikes and swimming holes that are still open so long as you practice social distancing. She even let us know where a few trails on their property were! One of the highlights for us was using the fire pit and bbq, while Lauren’s dogs Chubs and Aurora payed us visits throughout the day. The property and view are absolutely stunning. All in all, we had an amazing time and can’t wait to plan our next trip to the Barn!”
