We have been blessed to attract some very talented guests to The White Dove Rockotel. Back in October a couple came to stay with us. Their reservation caught our attention because although they were staying for two nights, they asked to change rooms mid-stay. They booked our Experience Suite the first night, our Heart Suite the second. Enthusiastically we were told because of the extremely different design environments of each of our suites they had been unable to pick just one!
So who was this couple? It turns out the couple is Philadelphia-based creative power house Genessa and Ryan. Working under the moniker Her&Eye this duo specialize in personal portfolio and brand representation with a creative style in conceptual photo imagery. We are honored to say that they chose our hotel as the backdrop for the first installment of a highly personal project. You see Genessa and Ryan aren’t merely creative business partners but they are also newly husband and wife. Each year of their marriage they plan to take a trip and do a photo shoot to commemorate themselves and their love. The White Dove Rockotel was chosen for their first wedding anniversary! They’ve agreed to tell us a bit more about themselves, their project and their choice of The White Dove…
TWD: What is it about Woodstock and The Catskills that inspired your trip?
Genessa: Your hotel was actually the inspiration to visit The Catskills for our first anniversary!
TWD: What was it about our hotel that inspired you to stay with us?
Genessa: Everything about your hotel inspired us. It immediately spoke to us on a creative level, something out of the norm. We were looking for a place packed with one of a kind style. When we came across The White Dove Rockotel there was no question it would be the perfect place to create something magical together.
TWD: How did you two meet?
Originally we met through a mutual friend on Myspace. Ryan was willing to stay on Myspace forever (ha,ha) but I convinced him to join the jump to Facebook. We kept in touch through social media. In 2010 I received an odd message from Ryan stating he had lost his phone and would I resend my number. The odd part was I had never sent him my number. This message had me jumping for joy. At the time I lived in Arizona and Ryan was in West Chester PA, a phone request was taking things to the next level! Soon we were texting, and over the year texting turned into phone calls, which turned into Skype (video chatting). Eventually we were Skype-ing everyday, skipping weekend plans to Skype each other and when we fell asleep mid-Skype only to wake up to each others smiling faces, it was time to meet in real life. April of 2011 I came to visit Ryan in Pennsylvania. The trip was everything we'd hoped for. By that August, I had narrowed down my belongings to one suitcase, bought a one-way ticket and moved 2900 miles away from everything I knew. I was terrified but three years later, we were married and looking excitedly into the future together.
TWD: Any thoughts on where your ultimate future anniversary shoot would be?
Genessa: Ultimate Anniversary trip?? We haven't really thought too much about that actually. I think as long as we are traveling, exploring and creating together every anniversary trip will be the ultimate one.
(Editors note: Genessa seemed to find the whole Myspace / social media start to their marriage quite funny, and I’d say it’s pretty ironic since these two still seem to be crushing social media with a combined 93.8K followers on Instagram alone!)
Need a break from the winter dull drums? Visit #Woodstock and clear your mind, or release some built up energy. The #Catskills offer some great ways to get moving or get relaxing during these long winter months. And the best part is these activities are a short day trip from the White Dove Rockotel located in the heart of Woodstock, NY.
Do you need a night away to clear your head, relax your mind, and get a great nights sleep? Start by checking into one of our cozy, warm suites with lots of music options and a great mattress. Then take a short drive up the mountain to the Karma Triyana Dharmachakra which is open seven days a week offering tours and guided meditation. The moment you arrive at KTD you will start to feel the calm presence of this very special place.
Feeling restless, or are the kids getting cabin fever? Want to do an outdoor activity in fifty degree weather no matter what the real temperature is outside? Howe Caverns are just a short hour drive from The White Dove Rockotel and are a natural wonder for people of all ages. Howe Caverns are open all year round, maintain a nice natural warm temperature, and offer zip lines, rock wall climbing and guided tours.
Now that the mind and body have been given a well deserved treat return back to WoodstockNY to enjoy all of the great restaurants, catch some local live music, or order in. Maybe end the night with a Netflix movie or spin some vinyl, all of our suites have both options.
Two local Woodstock legends have shows coming up at the Bearsville Theater and both will be nights to remember. On Friday Dec. 4th the Security Project plays the music of Peter Gabriel lead by former Peter Gabriel and King Crimson member Tony Levin this is a super group of prog rock legends including Jon Anderson of Yes. On Saturday Dec. 12th hometown hero and guitar extraordinaire Larry Campbell with his wife and musical collaborator Teresa Williams will be rocking through their new acclaimed self titled album. Come get cozy in one of our warm and relaxing suites before and after listening to some world class live music. And don't forget that the White Dove Rockotel is the closest lodging to the Bearsville Theater

We did it! This weekend marks two momentous occasions for our small family owned business. One year ago this past Friday, October 9, The White Dove Rockotel officially opened it's doors to guests. On the same day our second daughter, Ophelia Wolfe, was born.
That first weekend opened our hotel with a bang. We were booked solid for a wedding weekend. The couple had stayed in our Bohemian Rhapsody suite earlier in the summer and were so taken with the decor, they reserved all suites at The White Dove, sight unseen, for their wedding party. For our part we had been expecting to be open for at least a month by early October. However, one thing leads to another when renovating an old building. Before we knew it the wedding party was checking in that afternoon and a number of details were still not in place. Though it was obvious from the moment we got up that morning, Ophelia, would be making her appearance that day, Martin and I hustled over to the hotel. There was a small crew of us cleaning, hanging artwork, making beds and putting out linens. Around 2 pm I climbed down off a ladder after hanging the very last mirror and said "We need to go to the hospital NOW". Ophelia showed up 45 mins after walking through the birthing center's door. Our guests started arriving at check in to a miraculously finished hotel!
From that first event weekend to this past we have had a whirlwind of a year. In our short twelve months open we have hosted major bands, a number of roadies and tour bus drivers, had a new single written in one of our suites. There have been fashion shoots, parties and bands playing on our front porch. Guests have thrown great events; a tented and catered rehearsal dinner on the front lawn, an engagement weekend with live band in the courtyard and a women's event called Goddess Stock, coming back for their third time this November. Of course we have had hundreds of dreamers, vacationers and the occasional couple from Long Island, stay at our suites. We love them all and are so thankful to our guests for helping to support our family in this new business. It has been a great year! It's a wonderful life!
To all that have stayed with us in the past; Thank you and please come again. To future guests we are waiting to welcome you into our White Dove family.
Tonight at the Bearsville Theater enjoy a local treasure, our talented rock stars on the rise, Paul Green Rock Academy's Best of Season show.
The Paul Green Rock Academy is a performance based, interactive music school, based on a method honed over the past 17 years. They believe that the best way to teach most anything, and especially music, is with a hands on approach. Therefore, the entire school is dedicated to getting kids playing music in an as authentic way as possible.
The Rock Academy's teachers are all real working rock musicians, and as such are able to relate to the students in a very direct way, offering valuable advice and guidance in the field. The shows they stage are not just recitals for family and friends but rather aspire to be real rock shows at real rock venues, with professional sound and, when appropriate, smoke machines
TheBest of Season showcases the highlight hits from the past season. Tonight's performance will include this summers favorites from:
Additionally Best of Season show is a fund raiser offering scholarship to talented students that may need some tuition help. Every dollar raised viaBEST OF SEASON shows and accompanying auction and raffle goes towards The Paul Green Rock Academy scholarship program, giving deserving kids the gift of rock. A full one-third of PGRA's students are on partial- or full scholarship; support for the BEST OF SEASON show goes directly towards their tuition, lessons and show expenses and allows the school to fund existing students as well as new applicants.
Here atThe White Dove Rockotelwe are huge fans of Paul Green's concept. We have gone to several of the concerts they have presented from Utopia Sound Stage to Levon's Barn to local festivals. It's always an impressive and rocking time. Because we believe in what they do we have donated a nights stay to tonight's raffle. We encourage you to go enjoy the show and bid on some of the excellent donations and prizes.

In February of 2015 a lovely blonde singer song writer arrived with her guitar and stayed for a few days in our Bohemian Rhapsody suite at the Art Annex. She was friendly and quiet and apparently hard at work. During her brief stay, Kathy has told us that she found the suite so inspiring and comforting that a new song just flowed out of her. That song is Born By The Water, whose official video went live today on the world wide web. Here is Kathy in her own words:
"January, snow, writer's retreat, cabin, Woodstock, water, loons" pretty much sums up the setting that made Born By the Water so easy to write."
Kathy has been back several times to stay as well to film in the Bohemian Rhapsody. We officially consider her part of our Rockotel Family. Check out this "unplugged" video version of Born By The Water she shot exclusively for The White Dove Rockotel while filming the official video.
With a distinctive voice and lyrical style that combines a blend of acoustic and pop influences infused with a hint of bluesy jazz, Kathy brings a unique spectrum of songs to the stage. The music is as unconstrained by artistic boundaries as the woman herself. Although a songwriter for many years, her first taste of a recording studio was only three years ago when she moved from her native Scotland to Connecticut. She recorded Sweet & Easy, a homage to naturalist John Muir and artists from a bygone era. When she heard the final recording she no longer needed convincing she could sing. Since then Kathy has recorded two albums, four singles and one EP. Her style is woven with different hues and colours yet all are part of the same tapestry. Kathy knows what she likes and what suits her voice. Her vocal and lyrical style remains singular and instantly identifiable: an expressive range that is soft and intimate, yet sassy and upbeat with a natural, unforced delivery that captures the imagination.
'Her visual sense, a key element in much of her songwriting, likewise finds expression in her photography, but her muse never stops moving. Her deeply collaborative creative spirit has a proactive slant and much of her efforts are connected with others looking to embody the change in our world that they seek. Kathy succinctly describes her vision for living saying that, while her “… pursuits may sound random, even disparate, they can be summed up with three words: Art, Nature, Creativity'

The official video for Born By The Water was filmed by the Ashokan Reservoir and Cooper Lake, as well as the Bohemian Rhapsody Suite at The White Dove Rockotel in Woodstock NY where the song was written.

LYRICS I was born by the water, where the sun kissed the land In a hazy, easy summer where the breeze held my mother's hand I was raised by the water, throwing stones into the pools Laid me down in the tall grass and listened to the loons
Fall of night I can see reflections glowing Silhouetted treeline shaping the sky while I lie by
The water Raised by the water I feel alive by the water
I want to live by the water, take each day as it comes Be my one and only maker, learn the teachings of the sun
Fall of night I can see reflections glowing Silhouetted treeline shaping the sky while I lie by
The water Raised by the water I feel alive by the water
One day I'll die by the water, let her wash over me And all my sins will be forgiven and my bones in reverie
The water Raised by the water I feel alive by the water

Here at The White Dove Rockotel it's our goal to meet and exceed guests' expectations. Often this seems to be what happens. We've received many 5 star reviews and positive verbal feedback. There has also been some constructive criticisms which we take to heart and try to improve on. Why be in the hospitality business if not to make sure people have an amazing time during their precious vacation days? As such we do a lot of reading and researching what works for other small hotels and their guests. One thing I have noticed that seems to lead to what I'll call "miscommunication of expectations" is guests booking through online booking engines such as booking.com, tripadvisor or expedia. These sites work great for the average cookie cutter-type of hotel, there is a form a hotel fills out to be included on their site and limited choices of how to present what the hotel has to offer. A boutique hotel such as The White Dove Rockotel has a hard time conveying it's true identity through these sites. Occasionally, because of this we host guests who seem a bit confused by our keyless no hassle check-in, our modern streaming tv system and custom blend of vintage and designed decor.
As avid travelers ourselves, we encourage all vacationers to be proactive about their choice of accommodations. The first thing to do is consider what YOU like about other places you have stayed. No one place can ever be all things to all people. The perfect vacation is made by knowing what the perfect vacation means to you. From there follow the links off the generic booking engines to a hotel's home site. Check out their room options and amenities. Call the front desk, often small places have a small staff. By speaking on the phone guests can get a feel for the vibe of the hotel and the desk can answer any specific questions. Google the name and location of a couple of your choices and see what might pop up. Look in google images as well!
Below are 8 more great tips on finding a place to stay from the website Thrillist! Our additional comments in red!
8 Ways to Spot a Crappy Hotel When Booking Online
Originally Published on Thrillist.com 7/17/2015 By Nadia Imafidon
Nothing can ruin a trip faster than arriving at your hotel to find it's located in a sketchy 'hood, falling apart, or plagued with one of these 99 problems. And that the amazing online deal you thought you got actually means you'll be sleeping ON TOP of the comforter and with a chair propped in front of the door.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are plenty of online tools and telltale signs (from review sites and Google Maps to weird photos and bed-bug registries) to help tip you off that you might be booking a crappy hotel. Here are eight of the them.
The photos are artsy or distorted...
It's listing a room, not curating an art exhibit. For no reason (other than being sneaky, really) does a hotel need to post creative, artsy images of its rooms. Close-up of a flower vase in the lobby, but no shot OF the lobby? Red flag. And if the photographer used a fisheye lens (which widens the shot), there's a good chance the rooms are probably small. Same goes for the excessive use of filters.
Check out our room photos by clicking on the "photos and details" link on OUR ROOM PAGE
… or the photos are way too good
On the flip side, be wary of pics that look too perfect. A staged, almost Photoshopped shot of the hotel pool or an unobstructed beach with a sexy woman in a bikini seems pretty perfect, right? But what you're not seeing is the construction site next to the diving board or the pesky giant building behind the dunes, both of which have been conveniently cropped out. Take a look at Oyster's Photo Fakeout section to see some examples of deceptive marketing. And always look at actual guest photos on travel review sites, rather than just marveling at how gorgeous the place looks in the hotel photo gallery.
You are not going to find any photo trickery with us. We like to think our unique design speaks for itself!
The website is straight outta the ‘90s
Or is riddled with typos. Or seems belligerent at times. Don't get us wrong, there's nothing like a good throwback Mistral font to elicit fond memories of the early web, but let's put it this way: if the managers/owners aren’t taking the time to present their hotel in the best light online, it’s highly unlikely that they're spending a lot of time tending to the actual hotel either.
We custom built our WEBSITE to match our design and business aesthetic.
Google Maps reveals the TRUTH
And we're not talking about Paul Pierce. To see how well maintained the exterior of the property is, plug the address into Google Maps. If the outside looks run-down, chances are the interior is in similar condition. Sure, the images may be a few years old but you can at least then call to ask whether the place has been recently renovated. Also, take a look at the surrounding area to see if the hotel really is at the center of everything. They can say all they want about location, location, location, but you can use Street View to verify whether or not that’s a stretch.
Last I checked google maps street view was still showing the property pre our purchase and renovation. It's actually kind of fun to check out the google maps street view as compared to now. See below
Duh, the reviews are really bad
Do your homework and see what other people have recently said about their stay. If they are predominantly negative -- and were written last week -- it’s a no-go.
And the manager is negative online
If the property's managers are responding to complaints on review sites in an aggressive, defensive, or hostile manner, they are likely unhelpful and rude in person as well. Avoid hotels on their worst behavior.
We like to respond to every review online. Sometimes to highlight comments in the review, other times to clarify comments for future guests, occasionally to apologize and note that we hope to do better!
It's listed on the Bed Bug Registry
Nothing's worse than crawling under the covers to find things crawling on you. The Bed Bug Registry is a one-stop database for anyone who's encountered/reported bed bugs at a hotel. Do a quick search -- if your dream resort shows up, best abort the mission.
The website reflects the location and not the lodging itself
Red flag if you’re reading accounts of the surrounding block, neighborhood, city, etc., but nothing about the actual property. And if they're paired with photos of the skyline or beach, and not the rooms, it’s a no-brainer -- the place is a dud.
Our website really strives to introduce our hotel because really, what introduction does the "most famous small town in America" need! But we do offer an in room tablet loaded with local suggestions and day trips in our surrounding area! We are also always available by phone to answer or suggest any local guidance you need. Just give us a ring! (845)306-5419
The legendary Midnight Ramble's held at Levon Helm's barn welcomes an equally legendary musician member of CSN Graham Nash. Nash has been an elite rock and roller since the early sixties with The Hollies who were a post Beatles British Invasion band. After leaving the Hollies at the end of the sixties Nash ended up in LA in the Laurel Canyon scene which was overflowing with amazing musicians all of which were becoming stars in their own right. The rest of Graham's story is legendary history meeting up with Steven Stills from The Buffalo Springfield and David Crosby from The Bryds. Crosby, Stills & Nash played their second gig at the original 1969 Woodstock Festival and then went on to become on of the biggest acts of the 1970's and today.
