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.

About Kathryn or Bob

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

Why Kathryn or Bob chose Catskill

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

MAGIC WEEKEND AT SOTH

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Shakespeare on the Hudson exceeded our expectations, which were already very high.

Once you visit the place, you will feel the enchantment and charm this house has to offer. It is simply breathtaking in beauty. From the Hudson river view, to the interior design of the home. Not to mention the property manager (Bob Rubin) who is a real gem and will go out of his way to make your stay special.

An example: we needed a toilet plunger and TP on the second day, Bob called the cleaning crew who delivered it very promptly. He managed vendors needed on site (tent and other rental equipment, handyman to install light bulbs, etc) throughout our stay and even suggested to help us with baby sitting needs.
We recommend this place to any family or group looking for a private, enchanting weekend/week getaway.

Potential to be a great place

  • 3 of 5
We were told pool would be heated and it never was warmer than 65 degrees which is hard if you want to swim in the fall, but even if it was warm it was somewhat green. Owners never told us to bring our own chairs if we want to sit on the large outside decks. Note, the pictures show no deck furniture and I mean NONE. For the money they charge for the property they can afford nice furniture on the decks for at least 12-15 people to sit. Invest in nice matching, sturdy lounges, rockers, large dining table for the large deck. The 20 people staying in house did not think to bring their own chair to sit on the large decks shown in pictures. House inside fairly good, although some doors to outside DO not lock which is a little scary, craftsmanship is ok. Would stay again ONLY if they invest in furniture for the large decks and guarantee the pool will be clean and heated as promised. Tennis court not usable so do not even advertise you have one and just clean up some of the clutter on the backside of house. This property could be really great with some TLC, some cleaning up outside and furniture.

The listing description is correct.

  • 4 of 5
A unique rustic property with views of the Hudson River from a high hill side.
The management team will assist you and guide you for local attractions, shopping, etc. There is also a pavilion not far from the main house. The property is very private and secluded and can make a great event venue.

Unbelievable Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our wedding was quite the best weekend of my life. That being said, it took an army of support to make our dreams come true. The CURRENT staff (Bob, Dave, and company) were wonderful. We had worked with a previous property manager for the house and our experience with her was a bit of a nightmare. Bob went above and beyond to rectify the issues that were a result of this person’s mistakes.

Bob and Dave made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. For example, the clothes dryer was broken, and within an hour of calling Bob they had replaced the dryer with a new unit. Bob and Dave made themselves available to our guests 24 hours a day and popped in every now and then to check on us. Like ninjas, they would check the pool temperature, take out garbage, spot clean the grounds - all without us ever knowing. I firmly believe, with these folks in place, this venue will succeed in hosting many more beautiful weddings.

A few important notes about the house; the water is well water. This means it is treated in a specific way and the water has a sulphuric smell. This is not abnormal for this type of system, but can be a shock if you are not expecting it. YOU will not come out of the shower smelling of sulphur, but the bathroom will. Get yourself some incense or scented candles. I promise you will want them.

The house is gorgeous but RUSTIC. If you are looking for a ultra modern, white glove mansion with sleek amenities, this house is not for you. For us all of the charm outweighed any need for glossy accouterments. The windows are worn, the cobblestones a tad loose, the pavilion a little leaky (it also rained really HARD on our wedding day). We had an easy to please, easy going crowd so none of this mattered to us - if you are into the beauty of vintage, shabby chic, rustic country venues this is the place for you.

You will need to bring in EVERYTHING for your wedding (again not abnormal). This may change as SOH becomes more popular but at the time of our wedding it was truly a DIY venue. They require you rent a toilet trailer, you will need to bring in catering, and ALL rentals, flowers, etc. You will probably want a golf cart to transport guests to and fro and there is no formal ‘parking’ or ‘valet’ - another reason for a golf cart.

But above all else, every single person at SOH was kind, helpful, and supportive. Our wedding day was extraordinary and we felt like we were in great hands the entire time.

Hudson River House
Car: recommended

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.
