The 'Library Room' is the ground floor bedroom of a unique B&B curated by a composer and artist couple who live in a large renovated church hall in the Rondout section of Kingston. Tucked into the back of a courtyard just up the street from restaurants, marinas, art galleries, boating,kayaking, and easy drives to hikes and swimming or skiing The Church Des Artistes served as home to our children as well as our music and art studios. The childrens bedrooms have been artfully transformed into unique Bed and Breakfast rooms. We are perfectly situated less than 20 minutes drive from Woodstock, Bard College, Rhinebeck, Rosendale, mountain lakes and waterfalls.

The B&B is in this amazing church space that has been restored by its owners, Peter and Julie. They are an artist and a musician and were a real pleasure to get to know -- , interesting, warm and friendly, but not obtrusive at all.
The rooms, especially the one I stayed in, are just amazing, furnished with funky antiques beautiful linens, books and other beautiful objects. The rooms and the rest of the house were spotlessly clean and everywhere you see details of the original church in the stained glass windows and ornate moldings. The old, high-ceilinged kitchen where you have your excellent and ample breakfast is especially great.
The Church des Artistes is located in a very cool part of Kingston, a block away from restaurants and a ton of antique stores and the Rondout River waterfront. That made it perfect for a winter retreat, but we also really want to come back in the spring to use it as a base for exploring Ulster county.
I can't recommend it highly enough. You...

About the neighbourhood
We are located near the top of the hill on Wurts Street in the quiet Rondout neighborhood of Kingston. A short stroll down our street takes you to shops, galleries, restaurants, museums and marinas. There is plenty of free on street parking in front of Church Des Artistes Guest House and arrangements can also be made to park in our courtyard behind our gates. While some guests come by train or bus for a quiet retreat others like to use us as a base for jaunts into the neighboring mountains for hiking, swimming, skiing and the like. We are perfectly situated between a number of attractions and less than 20 minutes from Bard, Woodstock, Rosendale, New Paltz, Rhinebeck and Saugerties.
