Pursuits Weekly: A Celebrity ‘Love Shack’ Lists Near Woodstock

4 min read

Hot on the real estate market: your very own love shack.

Kate Pierson, a founding member of the B-52s, is selling her 6.5-acre wooded compound in the Catskills Mountains near Woodstock, N.Y. The property has been operated as a funky, one-of-a-kind roadside motel, Kate’s Lazy Meadow, since about 2004.

Pierson filled the rooms with decorations she’d acquired at auctions and during the many ‘tiquin’ runs she’d go on with Fred Schneider [of the B-52s] while on tour.

Although buyers could keep running it as a 10-unit motel, Pierson and her wife, Monica Coleman, had been in it more for the fun than the material gain.

“We’ve turned a profit, but let’s just say it’s a modest profit,” Pierson says.

The property could continue to operate as a motel or be transitioned into a family compound.

Both have other obligations: They also own two other getaways, Kate’s Lazy Desert in Landers, Calif., and Kate’s Lazy Cabin in Lake Hill, N.Y.—so they’re not selling the name or brand. Coleman is a ceramic artist, and Pierson still actively performs.

Esopus Creek, which runs along the property line, has “incredible trout fishing,” according to Pierson.

“We thought, this is a time to pass the torch to someone who can really use its full potential,” Pierson says, which she believes is as a family compound. “Everyone can have their own space and make their own coffee in the morning, but it’s a place where everyone can gather.”

Listed at $2.2 million, the 13-bedroom, 11-bathroom property comes fully furnished and is a retro ’50s fantasia.

In total, there are 13 bedrooms and 11 baths.

Each of the units feels self-contained.

Rooms are filled with midcentury-modern décor. “Some of it’s high, some is low, some of it is kitschy, some is Charles and Ray Eames,” she says. “And some of it is macramé owls.”

There are also VHS tapes in every room with “cabin in the woods horror movies,” and “each room is so carefully curated, it’s just so sort of perfect,” Pierson says.

“I just shopped ’til I dropped. It was so much fun.”

The overall aesthetic “is a midcentury-modern fantasy land.”

According to Olipop, a line of sodas imbued with prebiotics—or dietary fiber that helps gut health—“functional” sodas are “the fastest-growing segment across all beverages, having grown 360% last year,” a year in which traditional versions reported just 9% growth.
