House where Bob Dylan and The Band recorded ‘The Basement Tapes’ up for rent

New York property is available for $650 (£422) per night

The house where Bob Dylan and The Band recorded the sessions that would later become ‘The Basement Tapes’ is now listed for rental.

Dylan relocated to the New York property, nicknamed The Big Pink, after surviving a motorcycle crash in 1966. The musicians recorded music in the basement of the house, which were fully released as a bootleg collection last year.

The house in West Saugerties, New York has now been listed online for $650 (£422) per night. However, the basement is not part of the rental.

A description of the property reads, “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.”
