Gorgeous Woodstock Any Time of Year

Yesterday I took the toddler, the new-born, the dog, the cat and Hank, the pink Radio Flyer worm ride on toy for a walk down Orchard Lane and around the quiet neighborhood located behind The White Dove. Having moved up from Brooklyn little over a year ago and having lived in urban environments for 20 plus years prior to that, the silent beauty of the Catskills and small town charm of Woodstock make my heart sing. Yesterday, even though it was a bit overcast, I found the final colorful death throes of the leaves and foliage were particularly stunning. And then this morning I awoke to brilliant sunny blue skies, coupled with the first snow of the season. I hate to keep all this beauty to myself. Come up to the Catskills! Get out of the city. There's plenty to see and enjoy year round here in Woodstock and the Hudson Valley........even just a quiet in town walk can do your soul and body good.......

Our First Review!

In addition to hosting our website, we list our suites on Airbnb.com. Airbnb.com is a website dedicated to allowing regular folks to post holiday rental spaces. It's been around for about a decade but as a business has really picked up steam in the past couple years. There are hosts in every country offering accommodations in everything from tepees to old airplanes to luxury pent houses. It's really a fabulous way to travel.One of the great aspects of Airbnb is that both the hosts and guests can comment on their experience and leave reviews on the others profile. These reviews are posted for all to see and are un-editable. This allows for transparency and honesty. We would like to share our first review on The White Dove. Lois and her boyfriend stayed in our Garden Suite, the second weekend we were open. Lois, is also an Airbnb host and so has had many Airbnb experiences. Here is what she had to say

"Martin and Erin made our experience to the Fabulous new White Dove Rockotel one to remember! We loved all the attention to detail in the room. We loved being walking distance to the center of Woodstock. We had a car but we certainly did't need it. We played records, took a bath in the beautiful bathroom, called on our inner hippy, and relaxed. It was magical. In fact, Martin showed us all four units I'd like to book a stay in each one! Or rent all four with friends. Don't hesitate to book with this Groovy couple and enjoy Woodstock!"

We are nearing the end........

of renovations! AHHHHHH yes! For those of you not living in Woodstock I wanted to post some exterior shots of the hotel. It has made quite a splash around here. We even had someone drive into the guard rail while staring at it! Lots of people stop and photograph it, I can't wait to get the sign up. First a screen shot from google maps of what the property DID look like..... rockotel, theme hotel, The White Dove Woodstock

Still working on it but nearly done........

A word about the color selection and the name. A few people have asked why the building is purple but the name is The White Dove. We named the hotel after the famous dove (actually a catbird) sitting on the guitar on the Woodstock '69 concert poster. Being that the hotel is themed on bands that played that concert. But we also like the fact that a white dove is a symbol of peace, a huge inspiration for the entire baby boom generation and the world. We believe in the possibility of a peaceful, more conscious world. And so comes in the color. As an artist I also believe in the impact of our environmental surrounding on our psyches and the power of symbolism and color.

The color purple is  associated with royalty, luxury, extravagance, creativity, and magic. For centuries and globally it has been seen as a sacred color, representing what is often unseen but felt in our world. The color purple affects both mind, body and spirit, creating alternating waves of calm and passion, igniting creativity and a sense of higher connection. Mediating on purple opens the third eye to the sacred and helps align oneself with the greater universe.

These are all things that happen when we listen to music as well, especially the type of intensely creative and psychedelic music that came out of the 1960's.

So the paint job is the physical representation of the music we built the hotel to honor. It ascends in color to nearly white because white is the color of peace, of clarity and illumination, all things we hope to achieve when we take a break from our daily grind and venture out to explore the wider world.

So welcome to The White Dove, we hope your stay with us brings you a feeling of luxury, bursts of creativity, waves of passion and a restful easy feeling.

Peace ★♥☮

Woodstock Times

148 Tinker Street is not just any old fixer-upperby Nick Henderson on Apr 4, 2014 • 6:30 am

A ramshackle Victorian home is going to get a new lease on life from a couple who plan to turn it into luxury vacation suites that won’t empty your wallet.

It’s been overgrown for so long that Woodstockers may have driven past it thousands of times without realizing it’s there, but Erin Cadigan and Martin Mills, who moved from Brooklyn about a year ago, saw some promise in the place.

The home has a detached cottage, which, “if anything is in worse condition than the house,” Cadigan said. “But it’s really solid. It’s got solid bones.”
