When Summer members Adrian & Meghan Colarusso began considering buying a vacation property, they were of the mindset that second-home ownership is both an indulgence and an investment. To pull off that tricky balance, the Colarusso family needed experts who knew the hospitality and short-term rental businesses intimately. Adrian and Meghan decided that Summer would help them make smart, data-driven decisions when renting out the property– and make their own vacations as stress-free as possible.

This picturesque, one-of-a-kind Catskills cabin– which was the first home to be brought into the Summer network– is nestled along Stony Clove Creek, just minutes up a country road from the popular towns of Phoenicia and Hunter.
It was important to work with the bones and personality of the house, which was eclectic and fun with rustic notes, but it was evident that some of the layout needed to be enhanced or changed to create a better flow of energy.
It was fun to craft cozy zones, such as adding a built-in bench in the top floor bedroom to have a view out to the river, to deepen the connection with the beautiful nature outside. So much of how furniture is arranged can dictate how we feel and behave in a space so finding the right harmony between comfort, proportions, and color was key in working with a cozy cabin like this. Every object selected has to be intentional to not only be visually pleasing to the eye but to also create peaceful emotions for the renters and future owners.
