Hudson Valley Airbnb Complaints

Hudson Valley residents have for years complained about the influx of tourists to the area. And with the creation of Airbnb, it took the out-of-towners to the next level in the Mid-Hudson region to the displeasure of many locals.

For instance, back in August of 2023, a typed-up note was stapled to a telephone pole. The note was addressed: "DEAR TOURIST Welcome to Woodstock." The note went on to say:

"enjoy your visit in what used to be a thriving, creative, economically diverse community. If you're staying in a short-term rental listed on Airbnb or a similar platform, then YOU ARE DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for helping to displace long-term residents that were the heart and soul of this so-called Colony of the Arts."

Ouch. Needless to say, the anonymous letter writer was not alone in his feelings.
