About Dan Kajeckas and Donna Calcavecchio
I am an artist and graphic designer who grew up in the nearby hamlet of High Falls. I am passionate about my work and I have a deep love of the property I own with my brother Dan. I studied art and illustration at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and as much as I loved living on the Upper West Side while I was in school, I came back upstate every weekend to work at John Novi's Depuy Canal House, staying at my Dad's newly constructed house in the woods. I had the best of both worlds!
Why Dan Kajeckas and Donna Calcavecchio chose Accord
My brother Dan and I inherited this property from our father, who designed and built this wonderfully unique retreat. His purpose was to create a secluded, environmentally responsible, sustainable house for his retirement years, (this was in the nineties). Sadly, he was unable to live here on a full time basis, but he enjoyed the blissful seclusion and warm ambiance of his creation for many family celebrations and holiday get togethers.
What makes this house unique
I have such a close bond to this house and property... once you get to the top of the hill, after traversing the somewhat steep and rather long driveway, you'll see for yourself how truly special it is. If you're looking for peace and quiet,... seclusion without being totally isolated, you will love spending a weekend, a week or even a month at this secluded get away. We do as much as we can to make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. The spice cabinet is fully stocked, pots and pans, knives,... you'll find a fully stocked kitchen, and our hope is to anticipate your every need. We even make sure there's cream for your morning coffee.
