The arrival of offspring often dampens our aspirations of living like rock stars, but checking into Kate’s Lazy Meadow means you can still vacation like one.
Owned by former B-52s member Kate Pierson and her partner Monica, Kate’s Lazy Meadow is nestled on nine quiet acres in the Catskills area of upstate New York. The quiet, wooded estate does indeed include a meadow (perfect for cartwheeling) and private access to Esopus Creek, a waterway loved by fans of fishing and tubing.
From the outside, the Lazy Meadow resembles any of the backwoods vacation retreats that dot upstate New York. But inside is like an amusement park of interior décor. Each property has been decorated by Kate and her team with loving care. Pierson picked up many of the pieces filling the walls and shelves during her years on the road touring with the B-52s. Finding a home here, some rooms come together in coherent theme, others are a happy mishmash of the kooky-cool vintage style that Pierson is known for.
The eclectic and upbeat vibe is a welcome change: you’ll not only feel miles away from it all, but also in another world from the usual bear/moose theme of most cabin rentals and cookie-cutter décor of most chain hotels. The kids will feel like they’re staying a room from ‘The Incredibles’ — if you can drag them indoors, that is. Parents get into the swing of things by enjoying a cool martini at the end of a long, relaxing day.
The Lodge and Cabin are the best ‘family friendly’ options. Book here.
