A two minute walk from town. Child-friendly, spacious loft-like space doubles as an art gallery. There is a Baldwin parlor grand piano now and the foozball table is gone. The location is convenient and private w/ parking space. Smoking permitted on porch. This venue is a casual setting for your relaxation and creativity. The vast majority of people are totally satisfied with our laid back style. Picky neat freaks not so much. Those with extremely severe allergies be warned; cats live nearby.

The space
The Mothership is unique among B&Bs because it is also an art gallery. As a guest you may share the space with an art show. Creativity is the key to happiness and well-being. Tibetan Buddhists regard it as equivalent to spirituality and it's what Woodstock is all about. The oldest continually running art colony in the country, Woodstock was an important epicenter of the 60s peace, love and rock'n'roll utopian vision. In the 80s Woodstock was once again of seminal importance in the rise of the New Age movement; Native American, Buddhist, Hindu, Eastern Orthodox and Wiccan. It is also home to significant parts of the Rainbow Family, a legacy organization of the Hippie persuasion. The Mothership is also stocked with art supplies for guests. Paul has a long history of mounting shows and his own work was shown in 2009 at the Metropolitan Museum in the Pictures Generation 1974-1984. His work is in the collections of the Met and Whitney museums. His most recent show, of altered pizza boxes, opened in February 2020 at the 321 Gallery in Brooklyn. He is also a musician and there is a Baldwin 'parlor grand' piano for the playing pleasure of guests.

Where you’ll be

Woodstock, New York, United States

Woodstock is so full of artists Paul once tried an experiment, which was to go door to door and see how many artists there were and ask each to submit a piece. He filled the gallery with works from over twenty artists living within a block or two of the Mothership.
The town forest with its trails along the stream through the woods is only a short walk away, and there is an excellent guide Paul recommends. The library is also only a couple of blocks away and there are many activities there, including some for children. At night three music venues and several excellent restaurants and bars are in easy walking distance. That's the neighborhood, and there is also a healthy population of wildlife.
