This beautiful cottage is located on the quiet, charming Main St in Phoenicia. As shown in the pictures, the ceiling is absolutely gorgeous and the decor is warm and inviting. We loved relaxing in the private space out back in the shady hammock. There is plenty to see and do nearby and in neighboring towns. Kerry was nice enough to answer my questions and suggest local hikes. We cant wait to visit again!
Kerry's cottage was great! It was very welcoming and thoughtfully designed. It has all the amenities you need for a long weekend. The location is great as everything is walking distance. The hot tub was amazing for cold nights when we wanted to relax.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Kerry's cottage! It was the perfect weekend getaway from the city and exactly what we needed. We tried several of the restaurants in town, all of which were delicious. We also tried the hike that Kerry recommended; it was tougher for me than I had anticipated, but a good challenge! Overall a great trip that I would fully recommend.
We had the best time staying at this quaint little cottage, it is perfect for a quick romantic getaway. Especially loved the hot tub and and the hammock, we'll definitely be back! Also loved the food at the Phoenicia Diner and Tavern 214. Super bummed that Sweet Sue's is now closed, we were looking forward to those pancakes! Overall we had a great time...Thank you Kerry!
Kery place was very beautiful, clean and comfortable. it was exactly what we wished for a short vacation. The cottage is very romantic and in a grate location in the beautiful town of Phoenicia, We highly recommend on this place and we will sure come again.
We had an incredible stay by Kerry. It was very clean and accommodating. The Hammock, Hot Tub and room in my opinion was much better than any hotel stay. You have your own private backyard and entrance with a great host.
I will definitely recommend this to others, as I also based my decision on other reviews. 5 Stars for you Kerry... Keep up the great work.
We had a wonderful stay in Phonecia at this lovely cottage. Everything from the asthetic feng sui of the place, to the hot tub, to the colection of Rumi poems made me feel right at home. The pictures give a great feel for the place. I am a clean freak and I found the place very tidy and clean. Lots of available clean towels, made the hot tub and showering process for our 4 person family for 4 days, very easy. Wonderful stay as we explored Woodstock, Phonecia, Hunter Mountain and more. We will be back, Thank you!

About the Host, Kerry
Hi! It's such a pleasure to be hosting on airbnb.
I am originally from New Zealand and my wife Rebecca is from Scotland. We have been living in the States for the past 14 years. I'm an opera singer and have sung at opera houses and concert halls around the world. My time at the Sydney Opera House was my favorite! I love music,, nature, being with my family, and writing.
I'm a festival organizer and opera producer- a sort of self styled "operapreneur". I started the The Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice a few years back and I now run the Kingston Festival of the Arts and Opera Theater of Kingston in my newly adopted favorite city- Kingston, NY.
We have two young kids- Edrick and Rosa. Edrick is 5 and a wild nature boy Rosa is 11 and is an amazing pop singer, fashionista and artiste. We moved from the heart of the countryside in Phoenicia to the "big city" of Kingston just a few months ago and loving it!
We have lived in many places around the world, but think Phoenicia is one of the most beautiful- the nature is astounding. Phoenicia is definitely one of the few remaining 'outpost towns'- somehow untouched by the rest of the world. It's sort of fun living over half an hour from the nearest mall, in a sort of semi-wilderness but only a couple of hours from the biggest city on earth!
Our new home, Kingston-is just 30 minutes from Phoenicia and has a perfect balance of city life, beautiful architecture and nature. Like Phoenicia, Kingston is also a hidden gem only being recently "discovered" and reimagined by creative people who love its innate beauty and energy and love to visit and even stay,
