Would-be innkeepers: Start off on the right foot with Kate’s Lazy Meadow, a Catskills motel with a great reputation and retro-tastic guest rooms.
Save yourself the hassle of starting a business from the ground up by taking over ownership of the B-52s’ Kate Pierson’s motel on the Esopus Creek. The Ulster County town of Shandaken, NY destination is already well-known among locals and visitors alike, and, with the area’s ever-increasing popularity, now’s the time to invest.
Here’s what you’re getting for the listing price of $2.2 million bucks: A well-maintained, ten-unit inn situated on 6.5 acres along the Esopus Creek, with a Japanese outdoor spa and firepit, just north of the Ashokan Reservoir and less than five miles south of Phoenicia village.
What sets this motel apart from the numerous other lodgings in the area is its interiors. Every room has been designed and decorated in 1950s mid-century modern, draped in bold colors and authentic retro fixtures.
This in-unit kitchen makes us want to whip up a tuna casserole to eat while watching Ozzie & Harriet…
…and the common areas of other guestrooms are just kitsch enough while still maintaining a sense of style…
Here’s the extra kicker: The property also comes with electric, water, and bathrooms along the Esopus Ceek banks, making it expandable into glamping, semi-rustic camping, or trailers/small cabins-for-rent. Grow your business while giving even more guests the opportunity to roam through the Catskill Mountains at the same time.
