Let's all get together and celebrate the longest day of the year with an epic camping weekend and the third annual Sullstice!

Time to RSVP!

I need a good head count for food and facilities, so send an email to sullhouse@gmail.com to RSVP if you're joining.

There's still time to take this quick survey to help me nail it this year.

Check out the Sullstice Feed for updates and announcements, there's still more to come.

If you're still looking for a camper or an RV, Outdoorsy is the way to go.


The weekend only comes together when everyone lends a hand. Email me if you'd like to volunteer to help out. There's a few things in particular I know I need a hand with:


Food & Drink Transportation
Cell Service and Wifi


For those choosing to camp, we think you made the right choice.

Come as early as Thursday evening, and plan to be headed out Sunday morning.

While we’ve got a fully equipped house here that we’ve spent way too much time renovating and operate as a full-time Airbnb, we’ll be asking everyone to camp and enjoy yourselves outside.

Tent City

There will be at least one, maybe two tent cities on site. We’ll run electricity and some lights out to the areas. They’ll be big, open, mostly flat areas where tent location is first-come-first-serve. We highly encourage a comfy setup - air mattresses, string lights, a welcoming front porch… Some suggestions on what to bring to get set up right in tent city:

The Woods

For those who want some privacy, really want to get into nature, or just love roughing it a bit more, there are no official sites set up in the woods, but there are several places I’ve looked at and thought “that could be a cool spot to set up 1-4 tents and have a good time!” If you go this route, a few things to note:

Campers & RVs

After our first date in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, I did one better than walking Emily home to her apartment on the edge of Red Hook, I showed her to my 1983 Chevy G20 Van, Vandalf, and brought her home in style. 10 years later she drove the first of many many hours out to Yellowstone for one of the greatest trips of our life in a rented RV. Big, chunky camping vehicles are one of life’s greatest treats.

There are some relatively affordable options to rent vans or RVs, especially if you find some folks to join you. Outdoorsy is like the airbnb of RVs, and there are several nearby that will, for a small fee, drop the RV off at our place and set it up before you get here, then pick it up after you leave. Or you can pick one up and drive it here yourself from Outdoorsy or your closest Cruise America.

Whether you own or are renting, just let us know and we can help coordinate a good place to park, run electric to it, and you can live the dream.


We have house bathrooms, will have portable toilets, and while there's no showering inside, we have an incredible outdoor shower!


Dogs are welcome! Our dog Finley would like to know in the RSVP if she'll be meeting any doggos so let us know.

Food & Drink


Group Meals

We'll have Friday and Saturday lunches and dinners included for everyone joining. Email me to sign up to help out with meal prep!


We’ll have the drip coffee maker and bagel station going in the mornings.

Access to Grill, Kitchen, Etc.

We have a large propane grill and a charcoal weber kettle. While we’re ok with people using them, keep in mind we’ll have a lot of people eating and will probably be using them for group meals. Feel free to bring your own and set it up.

We have a kitchen but only plan to use it if you’ve cleared it with me, you’re prepping for a large group, and you’ve got a plan to clean it all up when you’re done.

Outside of mountain pies and smores, we’d like to discourage any cooking on the bonfires.


BYO drinks. We’ll have a limited number of panic Bud Lights / Coors Lights and seltzers in my panic fridge in the garage for when people totally panic, but BYO drinks.


There’s a Walmart Supercenter, Shoprite, Stewart’s and nice little farmer’s market called Barthel’s all within 15 minutes of the house. Stewart’s is the best bet for late night, it’s open until midnight.

Restaurants & Deli

There’s a few gems in town for dinner - recommend Gaby’s for Mexican, Marbella for Tapas, Tony & Nick’s for a sit down pizza, Dominick’s to take some pies to go.

There’s two options for lunch and breakfast sandwiches: Wilson’s is a fan favorite for anyone that’s ever come up here, especially their Reuben and Italian Hero. Note that it closes at 3pm Friday, 2pm Saturday, and is completely closed on Sunday. Really really good stuff. 

Cohen’s is also fantastic, with all the classics plus great specials every day. Open til 5pm every day, including Sunday.


We don’t have an ice machine or a big party fridge, but we'll try to coordinate every day and make a run either to Walmart or Stewart’s and get enough ice to fill everyone’s coolers. Email me to sign up to help out with ice runs!


Please try to keep your trash to an absolute minimum, plastics are ruining our world. We will have trash and recycling bins available. Absolutely leave no trace on the property!


393 Dowe Rd.
Ellenville, NY 12428

The best way to get here is to drive. Try to car pool. That said, there are options if someone is willing to go grab you at a bus or train.

Metro-North and Amtrak go between NYC and Poughkeepsie. The train station is about an hour from the house. If you’re coming from the north, you could get off at Rhinecliff and it’s about the same distance.

There are buses running between Port Authority and Monticello relatively frequently (30+ minutes from the house) and one bus to Ellenville (15 minutes from the house) on Friday at 5:30. There’s no return bus from Ellenville over the weekend.

Cell Service and Wifi

Cell service is not great at the property, but we do have great wifi that you can get when you’re near the house:
