Please inquire about using our other facilities to make your celebrations even more special. We have dressing rooms for you and your wedding party, and our music stage can be reserved for your post-ceremony parties.
The Peterson House
The Peterson House front room is available upon request to entertain the children of your wedding guests, complete with tasty homemade ice-creams and Woodstock’s talented children’s performers.
The Green Room
The Green Room is the place where traditionally, performers relax before and after a show. For a wedding party, it is an ideal space for wedding preparations or as a private room for special guests.
The entranceway has a small shrine to Albert Grossman, and a collage of photographs of the hidden people behind his success, including the engineers, producers, administrators and builders who created the Bearsville Center and the Studios.
Unusual hand-knotted Turkish rugs and darkened pine-wood panels on the walls create a relaxed vibe.
Off to the side, a fully fitted kitchen with laundry, fridge and freezer, oven and microwave works well for small-scale catering.
The heart of the room is the sitting area, which faces a golden shrine celebrating the spirituality of Woodstock. Here, a long luxurious velvet couch, floor cushions and easy chairs seat up to 15 people. A working fireplace and yet more antique rugs and pillows allow the band to sit back and relax, or prepare for their performance. A TV screen connects directly to the stage cameras, enabling the viewer to watch the action upstairs.
The Dressing Rooms - The Janis Room
Perfect for a small party to prepare for the wedding ceremony.
The main theater dressing room is a tribute to the Queen of The Blues, Janis Joplin, whose career was managed by Bearsville Founder Albert Grossman. A frequent visitor at the Grossman home and a regular partier at The Bear Café, Janis came to Woodstock to recover and relax after touring and recording. The room reflects the breadth of her life — her friends and family, the men, the albums, the bands, and the influences and inspirations that drove her to become a blues singer at an early age.
The room features a private bathroom plus shower room, three-person mirrored dressing table, and a luxurious wrap-around velvet sofa. Can accommodate up to 8 people preparing for the ceremony.
The Van Morrison Room
Ideal for a small party to prepare for the wedding ceremony.
Van Morrison arrived in Woodstock in 1969 to play the homespun Sound-Out festival on Pan’s Farm in West Saugerties. The songs of his timeless and beloved album, Moondance, came to life here, kindled by the spectacular view of the Ashokan Reservoir shown in the room as a full-size mural. Some of his inspiring and beautiful song lyrics and an array of photographic references to his life add to the feeling of this special space.
This room, which illustrates the time Van spent in Woodstock between 1969 and 1971, is also well-appointed with a bathroom including a shower, plus two-person mirrored table and velvet sofa. Can accommodate up to 4 people preparing for the ceremony.
