If you're a fan of Bob Dylan, The Band, Rick Danko's drivers license, beautiful rustic nooks, or the old, weird America, then you'll be as excited as us to learn of a magical new staycation destination. The legendary Big Pink house at 56 Parnassus Lane in West Saugerties, NY—which inspired The Band's Music From The Big Pink and was the site where Bob Dylan and The Band recorded The Basement Tapes—is available for you and your friends to rent!

Here's the full description from current owners Don and Sue LaSala, who have had the place since 1998:

Big Pink, the house where Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes were recorded with his back-up band, later know as The Band, whose first album was called "Music from Big Pink". The updated Dormer unit was Levon Helm's bunk area back In the late '60s. The Central Staircase opens mid-unit to a dining table & chairs; to the right is a desk-bar; the kitchen, with stone counter-top; bathroom with tile shower, and a futon-couch-sitting area. To the left, in the bedroom area, there’s a sitting area with TV ( limited cable ) and a queen sided bed with a quality mattress set. The Dormer has air-conditioning, and views of Overlook Mountain, fields and forest. Outside is the lawn with out-door furniture & original stone fireplace/bbq area nestled beneath the pines. The Dormer can sleep 4, and has WiFi.

The main floor is a 2 bedroom unit with a sunroom ( Rick's room - was Rick Danko's quarters), living room with sofa, writing table & chairs at the picture window, wood-stove/fireplace. It opens into the Dining Room, which has a antique dining table & chairs for 6. The kitchen, as does much of the house, maintains the mid-century period look, with forest views east. The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed, desk, sitting area & full closet. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds, dressers and side tables. The sunroom had a futon twin couch ( which folds down to become a sleeper). The sunroom has it's own back entrance, and opens to the lawn and old out-door fireplace for campfire evenings. All told, upstairs has a queen bed and full futon - can sleep 4 people max. The Main Floor has a queen-sized bed, 2 twins and a single 'twin' futon on the sunporch -and so can sleep 5 max.

Note: the Basement is not included in the rental.

Although the actual basement is off-limits, we're still chomping at the bits to get up there. It costs $650/night, with a minimum of a two night stay, or $2,750 for a full week. Eight to nine people can fit into Big Pink, though no children or pets are allowed. There are only five reviews so far of the place, but they're all five stars, including this one:

There is no house in the world quite like Big Pink - the spirit of The Band and Bob Dylan lingers in every room and the music echoes off the walls. The house is down a quiet woods road -- a peaceful and beautiful spot. The owners, Don and Susan, are wonderful, and they have kept the house much as it was in 1967 without turning it into a museum. It's a cozy and well-kept home with a great sunroom overlooking a backyard with a stone fireplace. I'd write more, but you ought to discover it for yourself.

And if you play your cards right, maybe you can get Garth Hudson to go with you.
