The Ashokan Center – The Perfect Venue for Your Next Event

Nestled in New York’s beautiful Catskill Mountains amidst beautiful forests, meadows, and streams, The Ashokan Center is a natural, serene, and inspirational setting for your event or gathering. Our new sustainably designed facilities blend rustic charm with modern features, and can comfortably accommodate small and large groups throughout the year (from 30 to 60 people).


Our Facilities 

Ashokan Lodging Pics (1)Esopus Lodge houses the performance hall, dining hall, classrooms, and kitchen. This multi-purpose building is equally suited to business retreats, music performances, yoga and mediation classes, or dance groups. The performance hall has dramatic vaulted ceilings, a sprung dance floor, a large stage, and sound equipment.

Longhouse Lodge is a welcoming, spacious, and comfortable two-story bunkhouse that easily accommodates larger groups. With handcrafted log bunkbeds and a spacious, airy feel, Longhouse is the perfect mix of rustic and modern. It is divided into four wings, each with its own bathroom and a private bedroom with a queen bunk bed with a twin bed on top.

Sycamore Lodge provides an intimate feel that is perfect for smaller groups. Its four bedrooms are linked by a large common area that features a mini-fridge and sink. Each bedroom has a queen bunkbed with a twin bed on top, a standard bunkbed, and a private bath. The upper level has a beautiful porch.

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.
