Plan An Executive Retreat In New York's Scenic Catskill Mountains
|Dedicated to supporting artists from around the world with art and music residencies during the summer months, the Catskill Mountain Foundation's meeting spaces and comfortable housing are available for groups of all types during the rest of the year. More than 20 buildings are available for meetings and teambuilding activities across the three charming communities of Hunter, Windham and Tannersville. Proceeds from meetings booked at the Catskill Mountain Foundation benefit the organization's many arts programs throughout the year.|
Meeting facilities are available in the Red Barn accommodating over 150 people, the Orpheum Theater accommodating 250 guests in theater style, or three Doctorow Center movie theaters, each seating 80 attendees, plus the Doctorow Center live performance hall which seats 150.
Teambuilding, events and offsite activities range from private movies and concerts to nearby skiing, zip-lining and hiking.
The following outlines the meeting and accommodation spaces offered by the Catskill Mountain Foundation:
Village of Hunter
The iconic Red Barn in the Village of Hunter offers a self-contained facility for a small group including seven comfortable guest rooms, beautiful conference space with built-in audiovisual facilities and breakout sessions on the deck, lawn or second meeting room. A caterer or chef could prepare meals in the spacious kitchen or in the Café at the adjacent Hunter Village Square. A larger group could use this beautiful venue just for meetings and meals with participants staying in the village of Hunter in four charming guesthouses that offer 22 guest rooms.
A variety of team building activities can be held at The Doctorow Center for the Arts. A three-screen film center with 80 seats per theatre shows the best of Hollywood and independent films, and a Piano Performance Museum displays playable instruments dating back to the 17th century. For intimate performances, historic playable pianos can be wheeled on stage through a special entrance leading from the museum directly to the stage. In the evenings, a group can enjoy a private performance by a concert pianist or a fun movie night with local homemade Jane's Ice Cream and popcorn.
Across the street, visitors will discover Hunter Village Square, a quaint building that includes The Corner Bookstore, the Kaaterskill Fine Arts & Crafts Gallery and the Mountain Café.
In Windham, housing options include Sherwood House offering 14 cozy bedrooms with private baths and a large common area. The adjacent Alberti House adds two separate apartments, with the option for two bedrooms or three bedrooms.
Village of Tannersville
The colorful Village of Tannersville provides the ideal venue for a larger meeting at the Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center, which comfortably seats 250 people and has a professional quality 40 feet by 35 feet stage with full theater audiovisual capabilities.
Housing located next to the theatre offers seven twin bedrooms with private ensuite bathrooms.
Knowledgeable Catskill Mountain Foundation employees are eager to help guests experience everything that the Catskills region has to offer.

Catskill Mountain Foundation
The Catskill Mountain Foundation's (CMF) aim is to provide educational opportunities in the arts for youth and lifelong learners, to bring the experience of the arts to the Catskill community, and to support artists and art organizations in the development of their work through residencies. Since its founding in 1998, CMF has presented hundreds of music, dance, and theater performances; screened over 1,000 films to tens of thousands of audience members; provided studio arts classes to thousands of students of all ages; and served thousands of art-loving patrons in its gallery and bookstore.
Since 1998, CMF has raised, generated, and invested close to $15 million in facility development and an excess of $30 million in programming operations, for a total investment in the Catskill community of over $45 million. CMF believes that the arts can transform the lives of those touched by it and can transform the community.
