I am a photo-based artist, naturalist and avid gardener migrating between Brooklyn, NY and the catskills. Between my work and my ten year old son life is full and adventurous.
Dana purchased this cabin in 1999
This location is rural while at the same time convenient. I fell in love with the cabin and its surroundings right away. (So much so that we recently bought a farm up the road.) The cabin holds a very special place in my heart. It's is a handmade work of art with its own spirit and personality. A rare find which is also decorated with rare finds. The surrounding countryside is mostly open farmland and rolling hills which appeals to my inner grace and sensitivity to good fresh local farm food. There are many farmers markets and farm stores that sell amazing ingredients to what I consider one of the most important pleasures in life, a delicious responsible meal.
Judy's husband drove the three of us from Kingston to see the real McCoy...and it's more amazing even than in your great photographs.
The guys who have it over the weekend were very nice when they spied us looking from the road and invited us to look around the grounds and to explore inside. The whole thing is like a wonderful mini movie set. I think it may be the original Archetype for cabin-in-the-woods.
