WHO WE ARE
Poetry Barn, a new literary center, sits in the heart of the Hudson Valley, just 20 minutes from Woodstock, and two hours from New York City. Surrounded by the mighty Ashokan Reservoir and featuring stunning Catskill and Shawungunk mountain views, we take nature as our inspiration and act as a pollinator habitat for art.
WHERE WE'RE AT
The woods belong to the hunters of dreams, the brooks to the fishers of songs.
~ Sam Walter Foss, poet and librarian
When visiting us for an on-site event, why not reserve some time to wander and be renewed by our area's natural beauty? The Catskills are included in Fodor's Go List of 25 can't-miss spots! Make it a weekend, and strike out on one of our area's many trailheads, or discover a hidden waterfall, or take in an event at the Woodstock Playhouse, Maverick Concerts, Bethel Woods, or Bearsville Theater.
