ARTIST HOUSING

Byrdcliffe maintains ten cottages for summer rental and nine houses for yearly rental. These simple wood Arts & Crafts style structures were all constructed in 1903 as part of the original Byrdcliffe Art Colony. We rent these houses to artists and craftspersons working in all disciplines and media, with the express purpose of maintaining Byrdcliffe as a locus for creative collaboration and experiences. For consideration, potential tenants will be required to submit a portfolio of their work.

Please direct all rental inquiries by email to the Byrdcliffe Office, or call us at: 845.679.2079.
