Kate Pierson of the B-52s lists her retro Catskills compound for $2.2M, kitschy furnishings included

Listing photos by David Coppola for Heather Croner Real Estate Sotheby’s International Realty. B-52s lead singer Kate Pierson and her wife, artist Monica Coleman, bought this 6.5-acre Catskills property in the early 2000s, turning it into a retro “love shack.” With a total of 10 guest accommodations, the motel called Kate’s Lazy Meadow is just outside Woodstock, New York. It was, coincidentally, built in 1952, and Pierson and Coleman outfitted the cabins with mid-century furnishings, bright colors, and loads of kitschy decor–all of which is included in the $2,200,000 sale.

Love Shack Times 10: Kate Pierson of The B-52s Lists Her Catskills Compound for $2.2 Million

Rocket through the wilderness at the 6.5-acre Catskills compound of The B-52s singer and songwriter Kate Pierson, recently listed for $2.2 million.

Kate Pierson Still Likes to Think ‘Shiny Happy People’ Was a ‘Little Homage to the B-52’s’

R.E.M. is alt-rock’s wise and sad elders, who took greater pleasure in being a siren call for everything we should be wary of in the world as opposed to, say, wanting us to throw our love around and take it into town. (Not including the song that Ben Wyatt used for his spectacular claymation video, that is.) This all changed, though, with the release of 1991’s chart-topping Out of Time: Nestled in the tracklist was a little ditty called “Shiny Happy People” that gave Michael Stipe his bubblegum Davy Jones moment as he crooned about the joys of growing flowers and holding hands. It was a weird moment of earnestness for a band who had previously preferred a more catalytic approach to their music (see: literally anything from 1983’s Murmur) and singing alongside them was B-52’s frontwoman Kate Pierson, who can probably best be described as the human embodiment of sunshine. Who couldn’t possibly be happy while listening to it?
