I love the city life. The energy, the noise … the takeout! But usually around this time of year I start dreaming of owning a little country cabin. As the temperature starts to rise I begin imagining myself swinging in a hammock under a tree with nothing but the rustling of leaves as my soundtrack. Until the day when I can afford my own country cabin, there's Kate's Lazy Meadow Motel.
Located in the Catskill Mountains, Kate's Lazy Meadow Motel is owned (and decorated) by Kate Pierson of The B52's. And as you might expect from a member of that band, Kate decorates with a nod to 1950's space age designs. The cabins and Airstream trailers, spread out on 9 acres of land, are outfitted in "mind-blowing mid-century modern/space age/rocket-your-socks-off decor," as Kate explains on the website. For this city boy, that sounds like just the right setting for a country weekend. Plus, it would give me the opportunity to experience a night in an Airstream, thereby knocking another item off my bucket list.
