An ultimate experience of perfectly curated services. Celebrate and stay with us at Church Des Artistes, owned by Kingston’s distinguished artists Julie Hedrick and Peter Wetzler. This converted Romanesque church commissioned by Thomas Cornell in the 1800’s is sure to turn your celebration into a truly unforgettable experience. Located just up the hill from Cornell Park in the historic Rondout neighborhood of Kingston NY it hosts up to 12 people and can comfortably accommodate gatherings of up to 35. The church features 5 bedrooms plus a Dutch sleeping cupboard and a daybed in the great hall (8 beds in total). There are 5 full bathrooms and a large kitchen with many historic features like the 8 burner cast iron stove beloved by many a chef plus a large central farm table, perfect for gathering with your loved ones. The great hall has 24’ ceilings, a 16’ farm table that seats 15-20, arched windows, a Steinway grand piano and a Juliet balcony. The courtyard is a private walled garden with ivy and wisteria climbing the walls.
WHY WE CHOSE CdA
This exceptional property bridges the gap between luxury and uniqueness. Church des Artistes is nestled in one of the most popular areas of Kingston, walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping, museums, and the perfect location for photos- the waterfront. Boasting not only the ideal Kingston location, but also beautiful architecture and design, this home wraps you up in a warm hug. When you first enter the property through the courtyard, you are welcomed back in time to an era of pure romance and elegance. The beautiful ivy and cascading wisteria set the stage for the perfect production- your wedding! Upon entering, you immediately feel cozy and at home. As you begin to walk through the home you see its personality everywhere, and a carefully curated collection awaits to welcome you. I loved the feel of this house, especially to host a wedding in. Artist and owner Julie Hedrick's work surrounds you as you make your way through the home, carefully immersing you in an ocean of art. The great hall welcomes you with a dramatic open space that is perfect for hosting a group. The farm table weaves an organic feel back into the classic setting, and is perfectly bare, waiting for your design vision to renew it. Take a look in the bedrooms and you will find elegance around every corner. Cuddle up with one of the many books available throughout the home. Cook a meal with the whole family, or bring back something from one of the many restaurants within walking distance. The option to host your event in the courtyard or inside is also one of the many perks. The perfect place to stay and say "I do"!
