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 accommodations
Your Family, Friends, and Associates
Enjoy exploring the spacious Rustic House and surrounding 101 acres of woods, lawn and beach. Your environment 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 while you take an evening dip in the pool.
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.
Shakespeare on the Hudson provides an optimal venue for gatherings of many sizes and shapes. Including unique gatherings like your own.

In the heart of the Catskill Mountains, on the shore of the Hudson River, in the solice of 101 acres of old growth forest; Shakespeare on the Hudson is amazing.
We originally rented the lodge but due to a last minute cancellation we were offered the yellow house. What an amazing house it was! There were in total 18 of us there and it never felt crowded, we probably could have had 50 and it would have felt just as spaced out. The master suite has an amazing bathtub overlooking the river and the sunrise, two great rocking chairs, and extremely comfortable bed and a loft with an additional queen in it (separated by a curtain, stairs and another door) this loft has the best views and perhaps the most comfortable bed in the house. There was plenty to keep us entertained, televisions, a pool table, a massive farm table to play card/games on. The dogs were in heaven. The hot tub was perfect, underneath you can plug your iPhone in, a tip from Bud. Kat and Suede are truly amazing and were always available. Bud and (his brother) checked up on us and were super friendly, a great bunch of folks working for the property. The kitchen was sufficient enough to get all our cooking done for 18. The stove is only a four top which made it a tad difficult for cooking "family breakfast" but truthfully, everyone was on different sleep schedules so it really didn't matter. The three suites downstairs are an easy lead out to the hot tub and fire pit (we never motivated to get down there due to the extreme cold, but talked a big talk to do so.) The only drawbacks that aren't even that big of a deal 1. the upstairs gets pretty warm at night, the room with the two twins is almost unbearably hot 2. getting to the porch that is an easy lead to the hot tub (have i mentioned how awesome the hot tub is?) is a trek from the rest of the house (there's a window in the kitchen that could easily convert to a door if you're thinking of any remodeling jobs guys!) but it isn't terribly difficult to walk the extra two rooms to get there.
It began to snow while we were up there and were very accommodating when we were discussing if we should try to risk the trek back to the city or stay another night. Our hearts wanted to stay, but knowing there was a foot of snow on the way we decided to head home. Bud mentioned they're building an even larger property soon. Hopefully we'll be the first to book it!
Thanks so much for an AMAZING New Years!
This house has a homey, rustic ambiance that makes you feel right at home as soon as you step in. It is very artfully done, and cozy in the interior. Everything works great: kitchen, bathrooms, appliances, etc.
Then you go outside: a beautiful natural lawn surrounded by lush forrest. Can't say enough about the beautiful nature on these property, you need to experience it for yourself.
This is a truly idyllic spot -- the pool, the river, the lawn -- it's all gorgeous. The house is also wonderful. It has a ton of character. I would go here again in a heartbeat.
The house is amazing and the land a peace oasis.
I got to this wonderful place right after moving to nyc from Rome, Italy. Being able to wonder in the land along the river made me think a lot about the first comers to such a vital energetic imposing nature. I also though a lot about those who that land were already calling home. This place helped me to reconnect to its ancient energy, awake my spirit and come in touch with my most primitive self. I felt like an explorer in a benevolent land. Thanks for sharing this amazing place and making it feel like home to me :)
The property is located on remote banks of hudson, easily accessible from hudson station using cab. It provides amazing views of the hudson lake and surrounding area. The house is very spacious, well equipped and has a unique character
I love this property! It's so magestic and really feels like an escape from New York City (even though it's just two hours away). Great scenic view of the river.. even swam in it! Loved that it felt secluded and remote yet that we could find great farm stands and Hudson just a short drive away. Also: the house is whimsical - decorated super eclectically and beautifully. Highly recommend!
Imagine...a secluded rustic lodge on a 90 acre estate with a mile of river frontage on the mighty Hudson. Private beach, with 90 acres of old growth forest.
Just across the river (ten minutes) from Hudson, New York.
Quick drive to Albany, Capitol Region, Saratoga, Kingston, Athens, Woodstock, Saugerties and West Point.
Great for family reunions, bridal showers, corporate events, birthday parties and weddings!
Other Activities: Exploring in the woods and along the creek and on the river shore. Kayaking, seasonal hot spa and heated outdoor pool.
Ski: 23 minutes from Hunter and Windham Mountains
Relaxing with freinds, family and associates
