The Ashokan Center is located at 477 Beaverkill Road  Olivebridge, NY 12461.  It's approximately 2 hours north of NYC, 1 hour south of Albany, and 20 minutes west of Woodstock, NY.  The nearest city with major chain hotels and a mall is Kingston, NY.  The nearest body of water is the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir - if possible, plan your trip to come across the aqueduct (at the center of the reservoir) so you can see the beauty of NYC's drinking water source.
