Meet a couple who makes a leap, not just in moving upstate, but by restoring a motel. Cidiot talks to Kendra Sinclair and Jared Vengrin who have just opened the Reclaimed Motel in Red Hook in Dutchess County, New York. Jared grew up here, met Kendra in college and now they’ve together been lovingly updating this motel along the Albany Post Road with a view of the Catskills. With fantasies of being Moira from Schitt’s Creek and furnishing it with vintage items within a 20-mile radius, they’ve designed it with a nod to 1960s motor lodge experience, including fun, comfortable and groovy. Hear about their experience, why they made the choice, motel history featuring Robert Redford, and some advice about visiting the Hudson Valley in the winter months including maple tapping!
