18th Century Colonial Stone House via airbnb
Accommodations: Entire Home
Max Guests: 8
Min Stay: varies
Trying to make some last minute plans for Memorial Day Weekend in the Hudson Valley? Well we were just about to say you’re SOL but then, after a stroke of luck (and some intense digging around), we found one last knock-out rental in Stone Ridge that hasn’t been booked up yet. What better way to celebrate the holiday than colonial style in a historic, 18th century stone house? Everything down to the unsealed, original floors to the antique furniture is original. The home didn’t even get modern conveniences like electric and plumbing until 1992. We have to say, that’s one authenticity we’re glad they did without.
If the price sounds a little threatening, let us break it down for you. Get 7 of your pals together and split the cost. $100 a night is much more manageable and kind of unbelievable when you think about it. It’s actually blowing us away that this gem is still available this weekend. Don’t question it, just wrangle the crew, pack the car, and get going. Can’t forget your portable Coleman grill that’s still in its packaging because it turns out it just wasn’t as practical of a purchase as you thought – oh, that didn’t happen to you too? Either way, book it now before you’re too late!
