The recently completed multi-purpose Esopus Lodge houses our performance hall, dining hall, classrooms, and the kitchen. The performance hall has beautiful vaulted ceilings, sprung dance floor, large stage, and sound equipment. For many, the food at the Ashokan Center is the highlight of their experience. Chef William Warnes takes pride in creating delicious meals that are appealing to all of the senses with locally sourced natural and organic ingredients.
Longhouse Lodge is a welcoming, spacious, and comfortable two story bunkhouse. With handcrafted log bunk beds and a spacious, airy feel, Longhouse is a perfect mix of rustic and modern. It is divided into four wings, each with a common bathroom. There is one semi-private room with a queen bunk (twin on top) in each wing. Guests must bring their own linens or sleeping bag, a pillowcase, a light blanket, towels and toiletries. Pillows are provided. There are a small number of light blankets for bunkhouse guests who are unable to bring one of their own. If you will need us to provide one, please let us know well in advance and we’ll do our best.
Sycamore Lodge provides an intimate feel that is perfect for smaller groups. Its four bedrooms are linked by a spacious common area with mini-fridge and sink, and each has a queen bunkbed (twin on top), a standard bunkbed, and private bath. The upper level has a beautiful porch. Guests must bring their own linens or sleeping bag, a pillowcase, towels and toiletries. Pillows and light quilts are provided.
Red Maple Lodge is conveniently located adjacent to the dining hall and gathering spaces of the Esopus Lodge. Red Maple features eight private rooms, each with two bunkbeds and a private bath. Both levels have a covered porch, and the second floor has a shared lounge area. Guests must bring their own linens or sleeping bag, a pillowcase, towels and toiletries.
