The Artists' Apartment is a relaxing home away from home for guest actors and musicians when appearing on stage at the Ancram Opera House, a rural performance hall in Columbia County. When not in use, we offer the apartment to travelers to enjoy the area and artists seeking retreat space to create, rehearse or meet with collaborators.
The garden level apartment is a quiet, private and comfortable space for 2-4 people. There are two small bedrooms--one with a double bed and another with a queen. The wood-burning fireplace is ideal for a chilly evening and the gazebo makes for a great spot for reading, hanging out or enjoying a drink. Take your morning coffee or use the charcoal grill on the patio.
Located in southeast Columbia County, NY, the apartment is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the Hudson Valley. Wonderful hiking, country drives, cycling just outside your door. Lovely swimming is also nearby. Hudson, Great Barrington, Hillsdale, Millerton—all between 15-30 minutes away—offer excellent dining, shopping, galleries. Performances at Bard and the Berkshires are also close-by.
A few details to note—the open kitchen, living area and bath are all new, recently renovated; the bedrooms and den are charming but need a fresh coat of paint. The bedrooms were once used as music studios with exterior facing windows so there is plenty of light, however, between the rooms there are interior windows which are curtained for privacy.
With additional arrangement, the Ancram Opera House’s intimate performance hall, equipped with a baby grand piano, may be available for rehearsals, retreats, meetings, celebrations and parties.
