Greetings and salutations! I'm Alana and I live in a farmhouse in the Catskills where I write books, essays, commentary, and a lot of blogs for brands because well, media is a sinking ship and I ain't good enough to be the last rat left on it! If you're a writer or other creator type looking for a week or month-long option to get away to a quiet place with enough natural surroundings to feel good about but close enough to towns to get La Croix, farm-to-table brunch, and see movies, I'd love to have you!
The house is 2 hours and 10 minutes north of the city and is situated on 1.5 acres of land in a forested area between the villages of Woodstock and Saugerties called the Highwoods. I used to have the house on Airbnb and did well with it but found the guests kind of unpredictable and they'd usually just want weekends so I'm making the guest room available at a discount to people looking to work on their creative projects here, ideally who share interests, some habits, and are chill with one large grey cat who is not allowed to go into your room but who will insist on your attention when you're around the house. I have occasional dinner parties and have exceptional gold karaoke mics for party purposes but I can arrange such gatherings around you if that's not your thing. Smoking is OK on the front porch but not in the yard or forest area cause ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES!
Here are some photos of the house and the property (the room with the forested accent wall is the wall you'd have but you're welcome in all, especially the gazebo because summer!):
That last photo is of a meadow nearby, not my house, but if you're into running, the views and the vibe are all great! So with Airbnb's discounted rate for longer stays, the room goes for $308/week or $776/month. I am looking for people who'd like to rent it for a minimum of one week at $250/week or a maximum of one month at $625/month any time between May 4th and September 1. Couples and/or friend groups of two who want to have exclusive access to the adjacent lounge room (the one with the TV and the Keanu rug) will be considered but will pay higher rates. You can stay for shorter than a week but the price won't be adjusted as the one-off weekend thing isn't worth it for me. So if you're interested, fill out the form below and I'll try to make the arrangements shortly!
