1894 by the state of New York for the National Guard, Amsterdam
Castle is a 36,000 square foot private residence listed on the National
Register of Historic Places New York originally built 100 of these
armories, of which nearly 50 are still in use by the National Guard.
Other “sister” armories uses include a military museum
(Saratoga), art gallery (Manhattan East Side), and a concert hall
(Albany). This armory was decommissioned in 1995 and is the only
armory converted into a home.
This magnificent building
has 2 suites (featuring King sized beds in each turret) for overnight
guests in addition to a 10,000 sq ft gymnasium, a rifle range, a
fallout shelter and billiard room. The current owners bought the
building in 2005 and embarked on an extensive renovation and redecoration.
In addition to returning the building to its lush Victorian decor,
the renovation featured environmentally friendly building materials
such as low VOC paints and repurposed wood. The castle has Wi-Fi,
cable TV and high speed internet, onsite parking for 40 and ample
street parking. The gymnasium can hold 1000+ (and 500 seated), making
us the largest event and reception facility in the county. The 18”
brick walls hold the temperature at a surprisingly ambient level,
making it pleasant in summer and heat-effective in winter.
Located in scenic and historic
Amsterdam, NY, the castle is 3 hours from New York City and 30 miles
from Albany, capital of New York State, with convenient access to
Albany International Airport and Amtrak's Amsterdam Station. Beautiful
Saratoga Springs and Cooperstown, NY are both a convenient 35 minute
drive. Other nearby attractions are the Adirondack Mountains, Saratoga
Springs, Howe Caverns, the Great Sacadanga Lake and skiing. Don’t
forget to come check out the gorgeous fall foliage, pick apples,
and revel in upstate New York beauty. We have two guest wings available
for bed and breakfast accomodation. We are as eco-friendly as possible,
using green cleaning products and organic, locally grown food for
our guest breakfasts.
Owners have hosted a cheerleading
camp and a dodge ball tournament, plus fundraisers, corporate board
meetings, and many overnight guests.
