What is it about taking an old barn, church, schoolhouse, or something of that nature, turning it into a living space and then poof, suddenly it becomes all the rage? We love the idea of repurposing but it’s more than that. It’s whimsical to stay in a building that used to have children passing notes beneath their desks or farm animals escaping the cold from outside. It’s also fun to stay in a place that wasn’t originally meant to sleep in. It reminds us of when we were kids and we would camp out in our living rooms beneath forts made of kitchen chairs and blankets. If you’re catching our drift and want to check out one of these repurposed buildings, then we’ve got the perfect one. Check out this schoolhouse loft in Hudson located in an old cemetery!

What was once a four room schoolhouse built in 1900 is now rentable loft spaces centered right on a cemetery park that many Hudson River school artists and local inventors were laid to rest in. Years later, it was converted into a tool factory, and then an artists’ museum after that. Needless to say, this building has changed hands many times and holds years of history and charm. The location of this one is also something to talk about. Hudson’s illustrious Warren Street is just a seven minute walk from the front door and tons of walking and hiking paths exist in close proximity. If you’re looking for a weekend away, this one is pretty much a no brainer.
