Property description

In the heart of the Catskill Mountains with spectacular views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains.

Recently upgraded with spectacular amenities to make your stay even more enjoyable!

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 Lodge.

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 Lodge at Shakespeare on the Hudson
awaits you and your guests with merry anticipation.

Resting upon a casual bluff, Hudson River Lodge 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 vessle 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 Rustic House and surrounding 101 acres of woods, lawn and beach. Your environ feels like Ralph Lauren.

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

Downstairs, the crowd gathers in the spacious kitchen.
The bacon is crisp and the coffee is hot.

The beginning of another great day at
Shakespeare on the Hudson.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: 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 magazineOwen 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 bird watching retreats, and have storytelling conferences that feature first-time authors to New York Times bestsellers. Shakespeare on the Hudson originally started as a space to stage critically acclaimed productions of Shakespeare's plays. After several seasons of packed houses and positive press, Owen saw the potential for SoH to morph into something more. With the intention of SoH one day becoming a self-sustaining space for a variety of events, he began developing the three houses on the property. The covered bridge made out of Oak and Pine trees harvested from the property and the in-ground heated pool with a light-house and an oak beam porch are just some of the innovative additions.

Why the Owner Chose Catskill:
Imagine being able to step into a Thomas Cole painting and see the Hudson River Valley as its first inhabitants must have. With its 100 acres of forest crisscrossed by streams and hiking trails and its near mile of riverfront property, Shakespeare on the Hudson allows its guests the opportunity to turn back the hands of time while still enjoying the comforts of the modern day. This remarkable property is the ideal setting for weddings, corporate retreats and cultural events. Located in Catskill, NY on the shores of the Hudson River, SoH boasts some of the most unique and breathtakingly beautiful property in the Hudson Valley. The two guest houses that comprise the lodging available on site all feature riverfront views that you will find nowhere else, unspoiled by trains, buildings or power lines. At night, the lights from the city of Hudson just across the river are a reminder that there are people out there, somewhere, but our guests delight in their own privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
We believe that the grounds themselves are the most impressive part of Shakespeare on the Hudson. The near 100 acres of land that make up SoH are home to almost every variety of tree native to this area of New York State. Hundreds of species of birds, including herons, bald eagles, hawks and owls can be seen on the property. Deer and red fox abound, creating a magical natural world right outside your doorstep just begging to be explored. The river itself boasts more than 200 species of fish, most notably shad, Atlantic sturgeon, and striped bass, which come swarming up the river from the open ocean in mid-spring. Kayaking, fishing and boating are encouraged as this is one of only a handful of locations along either side of the Hudson that does not require you to cross over train tracks or under huge power lines to access the water.
