Shell House Half Dome in Roxbury, NY

By |2022-06-14T11:52:11+00:00June 14th, 2022|Recent Stays|

Built in 1996, the Shell House was created as a prototype for future dome structures, and personal retreat, for architect Seymore Rutkin and his wife. Its design was intended to be a part of the outdoor environment, but protected from it — giving the feeling of an amphitheater in reverse, with a beautiful view of the Catskills as the main attraction. After years of preservation and few renovations, these days, the Shell House is an extraordinary Airbnb and artist retreat, with four bedrooms sleeping ten guests. Stunning communal spaces and unique rooms will make this a stay you won't soon forget: from its 25-foot ceiling living room, with floor to ceiling windows; to its four bedrooms with stunning views of the Catskills; to a pink clad bathroom with a soaking tub, illuminated by the natural light coming in from a porthole.

The Wolfhouse in Newburgh, NY

By |2022-03-31T20:56:42+00:00November 23rd, 2021|Pet-Friendly Getaway|

This stunning midcentury modern home located in Newburgh, NY, was built in 1949 by the preeminent American architect Philip Johnson. Wolfhouse bears much in common with Johnson’s most famous home, The Glass House, erected the same year. Set atop a hillside just north of the Newburgh-Beacon bridge with panoramic views of the Hudson River, it was meticulously restored to its original condition in 2020. It’s most recently been reimagined as both a rental home, and also a cultural space with year-round arts programming.
