About Jason Gabriel
Founder and owner, SHAKESPEARE ON THE HUDSON Owen LIPSTEIN It is no accident that the greatest school of art that America ever produced, the Hudson River School, had its birthplace next door and across the river from Shakespeare on the Hudson. I was a NYC magazine publishing entrepreneur, I came to Greene County to start a new kind of Shakespeare company, one, that at the heart of its mission lived and breathed by the proximity and inspiration of the River. I directed and produced 9 seasons of irreverent, radical and relevant Shakespeare productions. Many people came from near (twin counties) and far (NYC) to see our shows, and many came away, rapt. It was my great privilege to have been able to do this. “The ineffable mystery of the land, the river, the running creek, the elevations, the sounds inform everything that happens there. Every play, every event, every birthday every wedding party, every getaway that we host on the property leaves our guests with new clarity as they experience this sanctuary and become revitalized. Call it rough magic. If you do not believe, come here and count the bald eagles!” OWEOwen is a former founder, publisher and editor of groundbreaking magazines including: American Health (founder, publisher, partner) * National Magazine Award of Excellence 1986 National Publications: Psychology Today (editor-partner) Spy (editor-partner) Mother Earth News (editor-partner) Regional: Inside Out Hudson Valley: (Editor, publisher- partner)
Jason Gabriel purchased this Lodge in 1995
Why Jason Gabriel chose Catskill
This is no ordinary time, and we are all have been caught off guard. We think the River Lodge is a place that can help. It was started as a site to perform open-air Shakespeare, to teach kids the wonders of the bard. The place is available just now and invites you here.. It is perfect to find solace in these strange days.
What makes this Lodge unique
THE RIVER LODGE( owned Shakespeare on the Hudson Shakespeare on the Hudson celebrates the Hudson River Valley, the birthplace of the Hudson River School of painters and by virtue, the greatest school of art America has produced. Its most prominent icons, Frederic Church and Thomas Cole, presented their work to extraordinary fanfare, describing a natural world encompassing the river valley and radiating an overwhelming sense of place, both sublime in scale and unmatched in beauty. Had Church and Cole been alive today, they would be our next-door neighbors. Olana State Historic Site sits directly across the Hudson River from our kitchen window, and the original Thomas Cole House and art studio are a short walk away from our front door. We’d like to think that with a wave and a whistle, they’d be over for a drink. Shakespeare on the Hudson has 90 acres of mature forest, sprawling lawns of grass and wildflower crisscrossed by streams and hiking trails, and a near mile of riverfront. Hudson Valley Magazine called it “the best-kept secret of the whole Hudson Valley.” At night, the lights from the city of Hudson, NY, just across the river (ten minutes on Hudson Amtrak), are a reminder that there are people out there, somewhere. Hudson is very close, but very far. If one needs goods or services, the town of Hudson has them. The houses (a large rustic lodge inspired by the Great Adirondack Camps, and a beautiful, eclectic Hudson River Mansion) contain a total of 21 bedrooms and can be booked together or individually. Whether you are having a family reunion, celebrating a birthday party, planning a corporate event, dreaming of the perfect wedding party or yoga retreat on the Hudson River – Shakespeare on the Hudson can make your dreams a reality. Come here to be creative, to connect with the land, and to finish that book… View Accommodations
