Nestled in the Catskills, a little over two hours away from New York City, you'll find the hamlet of Shandaken. For years, the mountainous area has been known as a spiritual retreat — in the '70s, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin used to come for a sweat lodge; and in nearby Tremper, NY, the Zen Mountain Monastery has been offering Buddhist retreats since the '80s.
The Flatrock House comes out of a slightly different history: In the '60s and '70s, the cabin served as a local bar, disco, and casino. Now, it's a popular Airbnb three Brooklynite friends converted into a retro, rustic paradise. Situated on an idyllic creek, the four-bedroom home blends its original architectural details with curated midcentury finds to create a space that has just the right amount of kitsch.
