Bonner Lodge is our secret little hideaway (well, not that little at 2,500 square feet) in the Hudson Valley/Catskills area of upstate New York. We first learned of this former Girl Scout Camp lodge through friends who purchased and renovated a portion of the original camp next door as their weekend getaway. An architect and designer from New York City, these friends had us up to their unbelievably stylish "camp" and we fell in love--not only with their preppy-chic Girl Scout cabins, lawn parties, and design aesthetic, but also the Town of Catskill, the mountains, the ski resorts, the local produce stand--all of it! It was such a magical escape from the fast-paced-pound-the-pavement life that we lead back in the city. So, when we found out that the original camp lodge, that housed all the girls' (and boys from the nearby brother camp) church services and stage performances was up for sale, we knew we had to buy it. And who better to renovate the lodge and bring it into a modern day structure? The architect and the designer. And a year and half later, Bonner Lodge, with it's magnificent stone fireplace, is a warm, 3 bedroom log cabin, with 2 full bathrooms, a spacious and stylish kitchen, a very large, open main living + dining room, and covered porch for alfresco dining or sunset cocktails. We have listed several pictures for you to get a sense of Bonner Lodge and our personal style. But Adirondack, Mid Century, Modern, Warm, Comfortable--all fit the feel and style of the lodge. A few highlights: Kitchen -- fully stocked chef's kitchen with ALL your needs (and if something is needed or missing, please let us know) Bedrooms -- each bedroom (2 queen + 1 twin) has two sets of linens + great light; the 2 queen bedrooms have A/C units for the summer months and brand new high quality mattresses, the twin has a window and fan and pulls AC from the main room when door kept open. Window Seat -- custom built down cushions provide an unbelievably cozy relaxation spot and serves as two extra "twin" mattresses for spillover sleeping (kids LOVE this nook) Fireplace -- the focal point of the lodge and our personal fav Guest Bathroom -- boasts a brand new rain shower + all new fixtures and a gorgeous skylight Master Bathroom -- also brand new fixtures + a Japanese inspired tub with a shower and a window that gives a sense of taking a shower outside Washer + Dryer -- in the back hallway for you to use during your stay Dining Room -- open to the Main Living Room, it seats 16 Outdoor Grill -- please bring up charcoal/lighter fluid etc Bonner Lodge is a place to relax, cook, and spend time with family and friends. Playing board games, relaxing by the fire after a day at the nearby ski resorts, or cooking a Thanksgiving meal is what the property is made for. It also provides a wonderful home base to explore the gorgeous and historic Catskill Mountain Region--hikes, trails, creeks, waterfalls, ski resorts. Perfect for an artist or writer or outdoor sports enthusiast or nature lover or a family with kids. There are a few AMAZING towns all within 10 to 20 minutes of Bonner: 1. Saugerties -- huge 24 hour grocery store, home to HIT Horse shows, high end hotel for spill over family, fun local bars with great burgers and beer, movie house, the local gym, cute stores and one of my fav restaurants Miss Lucy's, with it's perfect Blood Orange Margarita 2. Woodstock -- yes, THE Woodstock. Quaint artist town with amazing eateries and festivals and music and antiquing 3. Hudson -- high end shopping, great food, gourmet grocer, the perfect wine & cheese shop, art galleries, beautiful antique stores, an Amtrak station, a great "have an evening on the town" town 4. Catskill -- another 24 hour grocery store, 24 hour diner (our breakfast go-to), Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, CVS: all things needed for modern civilization; also an historic downtown area with cuteness abounding Bonner Lodge is about 1 hour and 40 minutes from New York City. 40 minutes from Albany. An easy and cheap Amtrak ride from Boston or New York CIty. A few things we'd like for you to know: We have two cabins out back of the lodge. They are currently being used as storage for us and they are certainly not renovated or habitable, but they are there and can be seen and we want you to know that. One day soon, we will paint, and update, and get them ready for a ping-pong table and extra sleeping cabins. We are just not there yet. We love this lodge immensely. Although new homeowners, along with our family and friends, we have enjoyed wonderful weeks and holidays here. We want the same unique experience for you as well. Bonner Lodge loves to be lived in. I'm sure you have tons of questions, and we have more info to give those interested in booking. Let the process begin. And welcome to Bonner Lodge. P.S. If our lodge is booked, OR, if you have a huge group or family and need BOTH places, please check out our good friend Kevin's place next door. It's got amazing style and great light. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1688089
“Какие замечательные длинные выходные для 4 взрослых и 2 детей! Абсолютно понравился домик ... такой стильный и в то же время такой удобный, красивые прикосновения повсюду, прекрасные ткани и книги, броски, отличный камин и потрясающая современная кухня для приготовления пищи. Кровати были очень удобными, ванные очень современные ... и дом хорошо расположен. Легко доехать до Saugerties (любил кухню и покупки мисс Люси) и чуть дальше до Гудзона. Вы не пожалеете, арендовав домик - это потрясающе !! Мы также совершили поездку на ферму примерно в 30 минутах езды ... дети обожали это ... свиньи, ламы, козлики, крупный рогатый скот ... целых девять ярдов, плюс очаровательный фермер ирландского происхождения!”
A cozy private guest cottage on our 150 year old farm, nestled amidst lovely gardens and bordered by the ever-flowing Kaaterskill creek. Near to Saugerties, Woodstock, Catskill, and just down stream from the Kaaterskill Falls.
“Это один из лучших Air Bnb, в котором я когда-либо останавливался. Фотографии даже не отражают этого. Мы любили смотреть на закат со скал в ручье. Мы любили гулять во дворе домика на дереве во время дождя. Мы приехали из Нью-Йорка и почувствовали, что у нас есть вся живописная природа, которую мы искали прямо здесь, в отеле. Мы в основном тусовались в отеле для наших 3-х дневных мини-каникул. Место очень уединенное, и мы чувствовали, что имеем все это для себя. Показанный в подъезде был также замечательный. Мы привезли нашего кота, и он отлично провел время. Гарри - идеальный хозяин (дружелюбный, спокойный, быстрый, чтобы ответить на вопросы). Не стесняйтесь забронировать! Просто сделай это!”
