The Space

We are a composer and artist couple who live in a large renovated church hall in the Rondout section of Kingston, just up the street from restaurants, marinas, art galleries, boating,kayaking, and easy drives to hikes and swimming or skiing. We are perfectly situated less than 20 minutes drive from Woodstock, Bard College, Rhinebeck, Rosendale, mountain lakes and waterfalls. Organic coffee and teas are included in the morning along with highspeed WIFI internet access. The home is filled with beautiful abstract expressionist paintings. This listing is for our largest and most private bedroom with a ultra comfortable oversized queen bed, high ceilings, stained glass windows, a writing desk, antique armoire and a view of the courtyard garden. Guests share 2 full bathrooms and there is a 3rd private bathroom that we will share if there is overflow. The 2 guest baths includes a really powerful full pressured shower with a claw foot tub and a jacuzzi in the other bathtub. While we are generally working in our studios guests are welcome to come in for a tour. In addition to organic coffee and tea we are happy to prepare a delicious home cooked breakfast for ten dollars per guest. On nice days we serve breakfast in the garden and in inclement weather guests gather around the farm table in the kitchen for breakfast. We are required to collect Ulster County and NY State tax for your stay upon departure.

  • Peter and Julie are truly warm and welcoming hosts, and made our stay at Des Artistes far beyond what we could have imagined. Their home is a reflection of them: peaceful, authentic, and full of beauty and balance. The renovated church has cloudlike beds, stained glass windows, magical studios and a satisfyingly massive kitchen. Julie and Peter had great suggestions of places to eat, and made us appreciate Kingston for the diverse and artistic community that it is. Julie's delicious breakfast waiting in the morning is completely amazing, and accompanied by easy, intelligent conversation. Special folks. Special place. Authentic experience.

  • Peter and Julie were good at communicating before our arrival, were warm and welcoming, and helpful with recommendations for local activities. The guest space was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was an additional charge ($10) but completely worth it! Overall, it was a wonderful experience and would recommend staying if visiting the Hudson River Valley.

  • Great place to stay. Host makes you feel like your at home. Makes me and emily want to move to Kingston. Good food and drink very close. Beautiful old church. Great weekend getaway.

  • Peter and Julie's "blue room" was a fantastic place to wake into on a winter morning. An excellent breakfast, with great conversation, rounded out a wonderful start to the day. These exceptional hosts will make you feel at home in Kingston.

  • What can I say that hasn't already been said? Good vibes from Peter and Julie from the moment they greeted us. Their breakfast was delicious, and they made special gluten and apple-free dishes for my allergic girlfriend. The surrounding area was beautiful after a heavy snowstorm the previous day, and I'm sure it would be even more so in spring. Lots of great places to eat and walks to be had. Can't wait to come back.

  • My family and I had the most lovely, art filled, and warm weekend in Kingston with Peter and Julie. Between the breath taking accommodations, mouth watering breakfasts, and the comfy dream inspiring bed... We could not have asked for more. To boot we were also able to enjoy incredible cross country ski and good meals not too far away. Even our 5 year old daughter was enamored!!

    I can assure you that it is my hope to revisit the Church des Artistes during the other three seasons. What a great escape from NY.

  • We had such a good time last weekend. I am already dreaming of going back....and we surely will do. Julie and Peter are so warm and welcoming that we immediately felt at home.

  • The stay was delightful, the local insight was invaluable and the surroundings were extremely peaceful. We had a great time, were pleasantly surprised with Kingston and were warmly greeted by the Wetzlers, the Church, Mathew and the cool dogs (especially mop-head, I actually don't know his real name, but he looks like a mop). I would do this again

  • We stayed at "Des Artistes" last weekend, it was amazing. Peter and Julie are lovely and warm people and amazing artists. Their home was beautiful, I mean its an old chapel, amazing!!!. Very clean and comfortable. It was great to wake up to beautiful blue stained glass windows. There are plenty of great art books to rummage through. I would definitely stay here again and recommend "des artistes" to anyone. They made us a delicious breakfast (the bread pudding was super yummy). Julie was nice enough to show us her studio and fantastic paintings. I did not want to leave!!!!

  • Peter and Julie were welcoming and kind but not intrusive, and the church is gorgeous! They were especially great with my dog, and the most delightful surprise of all was that they had no problems making our breakfast vegan -- and it was DELICIOUS. Warm, lovely, and interesting people in a beautiful space.
