11 BEDROOM, SECLUDED CONTEMPORARY MANSION ON THE HUDSON RIVER / HEATED POOL/SPA

Catskill House Rental Photos and Description

The Hudson River House has the most spectacular views in the Hudson Valley

In the heart of the Catskill Mountains

Outside the Village of Athens

Across from the City of Hudson

Snuggled in the Hudson Valley

On the majestic Hudson River

Through the covered bridge

Over Shakespeare's Creek

Enter the deep old growth forest of

Shakespeare on the Hudson and her Hudson River House.

The drive meanders through thick woods

Following the cascading waters over rock and under branch

Rushing toward the Hudson River

Where your mansion is perched but

Two hundred feet from her bank.

The Hudson River House at Shakespeare on the Hudson

awaits you and your guests for a comfortable relaxing stay.

Resting upon a casual bluff, Hudson River House enjoys spectacular views of the Hudson River Valley.

The River has a heart

Her waters ebb and flow

As Her tide shifts

To surprise Your visit to Her shore.

Stroll along the estate's mile long riverfront.

From your kayak, upon calm water, watch an ocean bound vessel ply the great Hudson.

A Blue Heron stands silently stalking his breakfast.

Life slows down and becomes more relaxed

Alongside a river.

A perfect setting for a grand gathering.

Reclining in the Great Room

Calming to the quiet of the vast estate

A pie bakes in the oven

Your guests begin to arrive.

All settled into their comfortable accomodations

Your Family, Freinds, and Associates

Enjoy exploring the spacious Sunshine Yellow House and surrounding 101 acres of woods, lawn and beach.

With lunch searing on the grill

Your gathering becomes lively around the heated swimming pool and across the expansive lawn reaching to the river shore.

In the evening, far away on the opposite shore the lights of Hudson, NY twinkle and you soak in the hot spa beneath the starry sky.

After a comfortable nights sleep in one of the three master suites

Awaken refreshed to the warm morning sun rising in the sky directly across the river.

Downstairs, the crowd gathers in the spacious kitchen lit generously by 30 foot high french windows. The bacon is crisp and the coffee is hot.

The beginning of another great day at

Shakespeare on the Hudson.

Shakespeare On The Hudson:

Owen's background is in publishing: at the age of 30, he launched American Health magazine which won the National Magazine Award for Excellence, and later was owner and editor of several other magazines including Psychology Today, Mother Earth News and Spy. The Wall Street Journal called him the 'Wunderkind of the '80s.' Upon moving to the Hudson Valley, he became managing partner and editor-in-chief of InsideOut magazine.

Owen Lipstein — founder of Shakespeare on the Hudson — says that the next phase of Shakespeare on the Hudson has been 'the biggest project of [his] lifetime.' Call it, if you will, unfinished business. After purchasing the disparate properties that now make up the grounds of Shakespeare on the Hudson nearly 15 years ago, Owen has steadily been working towards turning it into a fully functioning, self-subsidizing cultural center. Shakespeare on the Hudson not only provides space for private events (such as weddings, parties, and romantic getaways for two), but cultural events, such as readings with authors and live, 'Inside the Actor's Studio'-style interviews with important figures who make the Hudson Valley their home. He also hopes to host adventure weekends for kayaking and rock climbing, organize birdwatching retreats, and have storytelling conferences that feature first-time authors to New York Times bestsellers.

Kathryn or Bob purchased this house in 1997

Beautiful privacy in wonderful comfort. Time slows down alongside a River.

Shakespeare On The Hudson is an estate which provides a unique and beautiful venue to occassions of all sizes and shapes and gatherings as unique as your own.

Brillant and breathtaking views in grand natural surroundings the secluded estate is ideal for gatherings of friends, family and associates.

The pure breathtaking views and the beauty the property presents is a grand outdoor back drop for hosting family reunions, corporate events / seminars, bridal and baby showers and weddings.

Fantastic Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks to Owen and his team for crafting such a remarkable property. The house definitely exceeded our expectations and the photos do not do it justice! As you wander around the property you will find more and more rooms, with a surprise in each corner (grand piano, ping pong and pool tables etc.). Not only was there ample amount of room (we had a party of 23), the living areas were very tastefully decorated as well! The group enjoyed viewing all the rare antiquities and vintage trinkets.

The group barely left the house as we enjoyed using the pool and hot tub. Each night we gathered around the amazing fire put down by the river, which was stocked and prepared for us pre-arrival. In addition, the kitchen was large and user-friendly, especially since we had several experienced chefs in the group. We also had no problems moving some furniture around to fit all 23 people at the dining table.

Furthermore, the service provided by Kathryn and Corey was extremely prompt. Kathryn made the process hassle-free and even sent out pre-arrival packets that provided us with information on the surrounding area. Corey, the house manager, was very responsive when it came to house issues, and he also did a great job bringing us some extremely powerful speakers.

If you are looking for a tasteful mansion tucked away in a little slice of paradise to catch up with friends and family this is it. We would definitely want to return next year.

An ideal Fall getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family and I hosted a large group of family with ages ranging from 70 to 1 year old. Everyone loved the expansive house and there was plenty of room for all the kids to disappear and play while the adults caught up. The house is situated on a gorgeous location and even the non-early birds were hard pressed to miss a sunrise on the Hudson. While the kitchen is not one that a gourmet chef may desire, it totally offered all that we needed to prepare the meal of the year. The three separate downstairs living rooms offered everyone a chance to go off on their own and all the bedrooms were big and nice. If you like showering, there is only 1 shower so be prepared for that, but the tubs are all very nice and great for kids. The owner and his team were attentive and friendly as well with great tips on local haunts and easy getaways. I could not recommend this home more highly to large groups that like an isolated setting with easy access to nature and the Hudson river. And the hot tub was outstanding given the warm fall weather too.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that John & Family had a great stay! I do however want to note that we currently have 3 showers. I was not able to be here to meet the group... which i regret because, I think maybe they missed a bathroom! There is one that is kind-of hidden between 2 rooms. We have 3 full bathrooms and a Half Bath! Thanks, Sally

Great family vacation venue

  • 5 of 5
The website's write up and photographs are true and accurate. We were a large family group (24) ranging in ages from 19 months to 91 years. We like to hang out together and the Riverhouse was perfect for our needs-the outdoor pool, the family room, the game room, the hot tub, the music room, the tennis court, the shoreline, the fire pit, etc., all provided great places for us to gather and enjoy time together. Off site, we found the golf at the nearby Catskill Golf Course to be a fair and fun challenge. Visits to Hudson and several of the local parks for hiking rounded out our stay. The property manager was accessible and very eager to make our time there as enjoyable as possible. The two "downsides" were: (1) that the tap water while drinkable had a very strong sulphuric odor but this was remedied by the house being supplied with large amounts of bottled spring water, and (2) there is a very large smoker on the property but unfortunately it is more for an art piece than useful cooking apparatus as it is not sufficiently sealed to allow someone to cook "low and slow." All in all I'd recommend this venue for those who enjoy a private setting with lots to see and do both on and off property.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a long weekend at this home on the Hudson River. The location was perfect for our small group. The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed the deck overlooking the Hudson River. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the nearby towns. The home was well stocked for our needs and we appreciated the newly decorated and clean bedrooms, bathrooms, and fine linens. The owner and his staff were very helpful and on call to answer our questions and any concerns we had. I would rent this home again and will recommend it to friends and family.

Wedding at the River House

  • 5 of 5
amazing property, gorgeous views, beautiful inside and out. We had our wedding at the property and were very happy with the selection, and so were our guests. Bud and his team made the house ready for the event, down to every little detail - new floor in the pavilion, hand laid the bricks on the path to the river, even had the flowers planted - all as promised. Also, thank you Tasika - the property manager, though we've not met - but spoke numerous times on the phone. Had a great time! Highly recommend this for large family gatherings and especially weddings. Wish had more time to spend.

Unique and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
This is truly a beautiful home and all of my 22 guests loved the weekend they spent there.

The pictures on the website accurately depict the home. It is spacious, clean, comfortable and accommodating. The jacuzzi, the pool table, the kitchen and the master bedroom were highlights of the home.

The property managers, Kat, Bud and Ms. T, were utmost professionals and were very responsive to my questions and concerns.

I loved this home and would definitely return!

Shakespeare on the Hudson and the estate's secluded mansions are a destination for tranquility and enjoyable gathering. The beautiful landscape and comfortable spacious accomodations makes this Hudson Valley property an ideal venue for gatherings and festivities of all sizes and configurations.

Located on the Hudson River. With a long private driveway. Very Private and wonderfully secluded.

Imagine..your own pebble beach on the Hudson River....

The River House offers eleven comfortable bedrooms, and 7 1/2 bathrooms - a sprawling masterpiece (loft style) that is a mere 200 feet from the Hudson River. Including three spacious master suites, and a brand new Sun Cal spa tub.

Minutes from Hudson, New York (recently named one of the 10 coolest cities in the US.)

Other Activities: Go to Olana, where Frederick Church put his hat.

Visit Hudson, NY by ferry from the village of Athens.

For restaurants (from the ultra-chic to the down and dirty), art events, or just hanging.

Antiquing is the passion for many who come here. Saugerties, Hudson, Woodstock, Coxsackie and Athens are some treasure-hunting locations of interest.

Striped Bass come swarming up the river in late April- June.

It is not unusual to pull a 25 pound fish out of the river; this is one of the best places to fish the Hudson River. You can fish from shore and catch your own herring from the Corlear (Shakespeare) Creek- which runs through the property.

This property is only one hour from major attractions, such as:

Saratoga / Saratoga Race Track and Casino

Six Flags Theme Park

2 Water Parks

Health and Wellnes Spa's

Golf

Bald eagles are abundant in the sky above; so are blue herons, hawks, and owls of fantastic variety. Deer are your neighbors.

Golf: Windham Country Club

Windham Country Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in the scenic Northern Catskills of New York State. Designed in 1928 by Len Raynor.

Also just minutes away:

SunnyView Golf

Rainbow Golf

Catskill Country Club

Ski: 20 minutes from Windham ski area, which is has recently made significant improvements to their wonderful mountain.

Hunter Mountain is 25 minutes away- just as exciting.

2 hours by Amtrak from NYC, 20 minutes from Albany.
