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, NY, USA:
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.
