Story of Kate's Lazy Meadow

Kate, Monica and PearlHi, this is Kate Pierson

I'd like to personally invite you to Kate's Lazy Meadow Motel, my cabin fever fantasy. Monica and I have tried our best to create our dream getaway right here in the Catskill Mountains, near famous Woodstock, New York.

As a member of the rock band, The B-52s, believe me, I've stayed at them all - from the Four Seasons in LA to the Pink Flamingo Motel in Gatorville, Florida. I do know a motel from a hotel, or a no-tell!

Inside the cozy, rustic cabins you'll find mind-blowing mid-century modern/space age/rocket-your-socks-off decor. The suites are filled with authentic 50s-style kitchens turned out with vintage cabinets, Frigidaires and stoves - all in dazzing colors! Wait 'till you get a load of my to-die-for tchotchkes from shopping sprees all around America (hey, a girl's got to do something while on tour!).

And oh...did I mention that Lazy Meadow is located on nine beautiful acres, and one big lazy meadow? Complete with stirring Catskill Mountain views, it's fronted by a private secluded section of the magnificent Esopus Creek (famous for tubing and trout-fishing).

When I first saw Lazy Meadow

I flipped my wig! The 1950s cabins fuelled my fantasies and my imagination took off like a blazing campfire. The cabins needed work to be restored to their former glory, but they were bustin' at the seams with potential. I never could've done it ALL alone.

Enter my friends...geniuses all!

I had a blast working closely with my friends (A.K.A. design team) on this decorating safari. My pal, Bill Stewart, of the acclaimed design studio 'William Stewart Design' in both Atlanta and New York selected the dazzing color pallette for Lazy Meadow - from floor to ceiling to countertop! He's mad. I tell you, MAD!

My artist buddies, Phillip Maberry and Scott Walker, known as the groovy duo whose home was the "Love Shack" set for the B-52's video, designed and installed fab-u-lous tiles and ceramic bubble art for the cabins. They went through the whole joint like a pair of Tasmanian tornadoes - fine-tuning and placing all the artwork, tchotchkes, furniture and myriad lamps and such in a way that just says "WOW!" So, if you've got cabin fever, head to the Catskills for a fall free-for-all. It's a gorgeous day, and I know you've been working too hard.

So GET LAZY and come on up to Kate's Lazy Meadow!

OPENING SOON:  Monica and I teamed up with Maberry-Walker and opened Kate's Lazy Desert in the High Desert near Joshua Tree, CA -- It's a magical Vintage Airstream Hotel... more details to follow!
