Wildwood Weekend Retreats


Participants are welcome to stay at the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, a sprawling 250 acre campus and one of the oldest running arts colonies in North America, operating since 1902.  Each building is a handcrafted, heralding the 'back to nature' arts and crafts movement in the turn of the last century.  Wild flowers, oaks, and our very own natural spring belie the fact that Byrdcliffe sits just 5 minutes from the center of Woodstock town where you'll find delicious organic restaurants, local crafts, antiques, and Woodstock's legendary music scene. This idyllic mountain retreat is just 2 hours from New York City. 

Guests are welcome to stay in the beautifully restored Byrdcliffe Farmhouse with a variety of options ranging from a single, double, or triple rooms.  Facilities are shared and our water comes from a private natural spring on our land. 


Preparing and sharing high quality food with our community is essential to good living.  Vegetarian and vegan options will be offered as well as conscious meat dishes.
