Description

The space

The dome is an incredible "Glamping" space and guests are required to BYOBed. Bring air mattresses, camping air pads, sleeping bags, pillows and towels. There is a wooden floor in the dome and screen windows for airflow and to keep out bugs.

For an extra fee the Dome can be used for workshop space, shoots, rehearsal space, or sleep over parties :)

For guests who stay in the dome, there are outdoor double hot showers, a sink, and a claw foot bathtub. Also, a complete outdoor kitchen and grill, fridge, sink, and big fire pit are available for your use.

We are located on a farm in beautiful Sullivan County, close to Bethel Woods, the Catskill Park, Neversink Unique Area and Sam's Point.

There are many animals on the farm. Merino sheep, angora goats, angora rabbits, oberhasli dairy goats, chickens (running free so please leash dogs!), one cat and a dog named Lali. We have a greenhouse and vegetable garden, a pond for doggies to go swimming, and a lake across the street.

There is a full-service recording studio on the premises as well as a fiber arts workshop space. The fiber from our Angora bunnies is shorn and hand-spun into winter accessories. In June, a vintage clothing store is opening on the property. Come and browse through Ambika Boutique's collection of vintage clothing, shoes, bags, and hats.

Check out is no later than noon on Sunday as there is a weekly yoga class at 12:30. It is donation based and anyone may join. Bring a mat!

Guest access

Guests are encouraged to explore the 12 acre property, relax by the pond, cuddle the bunnies, sheep, and goats (please ask how to turn off the electric fence), and go for a hike on the 6 mile rails-to-trails path across the street.

There is access to a communal outdoor fire pit (wood is available for purchase), a 6 burner outdoor stove and grill, a hot double outdoor shower and an outhouse.

High-speed internet is provided free of charge.
It only works closer to the main houses, so you may have to sit outside to access it. Download those movies!

We recommend stopping for groceries on your way. (If you're driving from the city, the Fairway at 125th Street is an excellent stop!) Our own eggs and vegetables are available for purchase. Price per night does not include breakfast.

Interaction with guests

We will welcome you and give you a tour of the property upon your arrival.

If you will be arriving at a late hour, we will greet you in the morning!

If you have any questions about the property please ask.

The neighbourhood

Sullivan County was the site of hundreds of Borscht Belt hotels and resorts, which had their heyday from the 1920s through the 1970s. When air travel became more attainable, the area's tourist industry declined and left many camps and resorts vacant.

Recently, many artists and small farmers have moved into the area and are working to bring it back culturally and economically. The county is extremely diverse with a mixed population that is similar to that of the South Williamsburg area of Brooklyn.

The natural offerings given by this area are prized by residents. There are hikes that will lead you to rivers, waterfalls and look-out points. Lakes are everywhere and offer great fresh water swimming. The Basha Kill wetland is the largest wetland (over 3,000 acres) in southeastern New York and is home to a diverse population of wildlife and plants.

Many beautiful and sustainable farms are close-by and welcome visitors. Information can be found in the guidebook.

Getting around

We recommend renting a car to get to the property. It is the easiest method of transportation and gives you the freedom to explore the natural offerings of the area. The Neversink Unique Area, Sam's Point, and many farms and farmers markets are close-by and make great day trips.

If public transportation is the only option, you can take the New Jersey Transit to Otisville, NY (you can make a stop at our favorite raw milk dairy on the way!) and then take a taxi to Woodridge. A one-way train ticket costs $18.50. Four Eigths Transportation is the taxi service available in Otisville. The estimated taxi cost is around $50. We recommend calling to pre-arrange your pick-up.

The Shortline Bus from Penn Station stops in Monticello and also makes a few stops in Woodridge. Tickets cost around $30 each way.

Bus schedule NY to Monticello:
8am, 10:15am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 6:30pm, 8:30pm, 11pm

Monticello to NY:
5am, 6am, 8am, 10:30am, 1pm, 4pm, 6pm, 8pm, 10pm

NY to Woodridge:
1:15pm, 2:30pm, 3:10pm, 4:30pm

Woodridge to NY:
7am, 9:30am, 5:15pm

We can pick you up in Woodridge, but if you arrive into Monticello we suggest calling Yellow Cab to bring you to the farm.

Other things to note

If you want to relax in a rural environment and experience a food-based, makers community then this is the place for you.

The property has multiple dwellings and many shared spaces. We often host yoga retreats and have musicians recording in our full music studio. Please ask us if you would like to know what is happening during your stay.


House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

No cats...sorry. DOGS may come with you, but are not allowed in the Dome. You can bring their crate/bed and they may sleep on the porch to join you on hikes.

Dogs must be on leash at all times, as we have free roaming animals. Dogs may not be left in your space while you are not present. The Neversink Unique Area is a great off-leash area for your pup to roam free.

We are extremely energy conscious and expect you to be as well. All doors and windows must be closed when the heat is running. Thermostats must be set at 60 degrees when you are out exploring and kept at 68 max when you are inside. If excessive energy is used we will use your deposit to pay for the additional costs.

Be mindful of turning off lights and computers.

No smoking indoors.

As we are a farm and things get dirty fast, we ask that you please leave your shoes at the door.

Here at the farm we compost and recycle everything that we can. We have a compost area in the garden.

ORGANIC only scraps can be fed to the sheep and goats. (please ask us to turn off the electric fence or feed through the blue gate.) They love banana peels, most all fruit peels, and any greens and herb stems. The egg shells can be crushed up and fed back to the chickens for calcium to produce more :) Absolutely no onion, avocado or pits.

Paper, plastic and metal must be recycled. Be mindful of the trash you create, if you have questions please ask.

Please do not pick anything (veggies, berries, flowers, etc.) unless we are with you. Our eggs, vegetables and fruits are available for purchase.

If anything gets stained or broken, please report it asap. Don't be shy. The earlier the better, as stains set in.

Please be careful of the electric fencing that surrounds the animal pasture!

Guests have access to the many shared spaces on the property. Please keep these areas clean and respect others that are enjoying them.

Myself and 13 friends enjoyed this scenic upstate property for my birthday weekend. We stayed in the geodome, but the property also included tiny houses, music studios, an outdoor kitchen, a local retail shop, and a petting farm. Pre-chopped wood surrounded for the fire pit - make sure to bring extra marshmallows! Josh's communication was concise and honest throughout the whole Airbnb experience, from the initial inquiry to the smooth check-in and check-out process. A great weekend away at this spot is highly recommended!

I brought a group of 23 for an overnight stay at the dome and we had an incredible time. We made full use of the outdoor kitchen, the grill, the bonfire, and the dome (there was ample room for all of us!). Joshua was also a fabulous host. Highly recommended!

Joshua was very welcoming and showed us around when we first arrived -- he explained where everything was and how things worked. We were allowed to interact freely with all the animals on the property; the outside kitchen was well stocked. We went in early November, so it was a tad cold, but there was a radiator inside the dome. Still, bring warm sleeping bags and lots of blankets if you go then! Overall, great stay.
