About Zack Baddorf
I’m a journalist and filmmaker with more than 15 years of experience producing award-winning stories from more than 30 countries, including Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the West Bank, and Kashmir, as well as rebel-held territory in Sri Lanka and Burma. My work has been published by the New York Times, Washington Post, BBC, Reuters, AP, The Guardian, CBS, ABC, NPR, the Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, Newsweek, VICE, RYOT, Al Jazeera English, and other publications in video, radio, photo, and print formats. My videos on social media alone have more than 30 million views. While based in the Central African Republic, I broke the news of the American military ending its mission against the Lord’s Resistance Army. My in-depth reporting on the Syrian town of Moadamiyah contributed to humanitarian access being granted to besieged people there. Weeks before Russian troops invaded Crimea, my reporting from the peninsula highlighted its political importance in the conflict. I work as a video producer for the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism, crafting anti-ISIS videos. For a year in Afghanistan, I worked on rural, remote bases for the U.S. Special Operations Command as a civilian videographer, alongside Green Berets, Navy SEALs and Afghan security forces. I have also worked as an adjunct professor at New York University and New York Film Academy, teaching public relations and broadcast journalism. I've got a master of fine arts degree in documentary studies, a master of arts degree in international relations, another master’s in public relations and a bachelor's in journalism.
Why Zack Baddorf chose Woodstock
The space This home is a peaceful and relaxing spot. There are three good-sized bedrooms with queen size beds, plus an extra queen size air mattress. The kitchen is large and has lots of coffee, tea, dishes, cups, utensils for your meals. We've spotted deer and wild turkeys wandering through the backyard. The animals seem to love the creek running through the property. You'll also likely hear a variety of birds. There's a projector screen that you're welcome to use with Amazon and Netflix. You're also welcome to sit around the fireplace in the living room and use the propane grill out back. Guest access The whole house will be for you to enjoy. I use electronic locks and issue you a code so you can arrive and depart on your own. I have a security camera looking out at the front lawn that allows me to communicate with you in case there are issues getting in. I will send you a message about what to do if you have problems with the lock. Interaction with guests I'll be available by text and email to help troubleshoot any issues.
What makes this Barn unique
Other things to note The bathroom with the tub/shower is upstairs. Please note the spiral staircase. It may not be for everyone as it is pretty steep. /// There is a $20 pet cleaning fee. If you plan to bring a cat, dog, or other animal, please let me know when you book. // As you can tell from the photos, I have a friendly puppy, so you may notice some dog hair around the house -- we keep it as clean as possible! -- so if you're allergic to dogs, this may not be the place for you. /// In April 2017, I installed a larger hot water tank so that guests can enjoy longer hot showers. However, the tank is not massive so I recommend taking quick showers if there are multiple people. /// There are extra table leaves in the shed to extend the table, if you have a large group. /// There is central heating, but if you want to use the fire place, please plan on bringing your own firewood/kindling. It can be purchased at most gas stations and hardware stores in the area. /// For people considering stays longer than one week, I will get cleaning done every two weeks and will need to add that fee to your stay. /// There are two fans for your use in the living room and porch to keep cool. There is an AC in each of the bedrooms. There is no central AC. /// I have a dog run (a cable between two trees) that you can use in the backyard to let your dog run a bit while secured. // I have a floor plan of the house and can send to you on request via Airbnb.

The house was exactly as listed. Clean and beautiful place to stay. Grill, tons of games, projector screen, great screened in porch out back. Communication with the owner was amazing. Key pad entry made coming and going easy. Took Ubers into town each day with no issues whatsoever (sometimes they’re 15min away but they were still reliable). Had a great stay and hope to be back some day.
