Shandaken: Storm King is located within the Art Center's grounds, but at a remove from public areas. Residents may enjoy Storm King Art Center during the hours it is open to the public.

Residents are housed with their family or collaborator/s in a large home with historic details and modern updates. The house is located very close to the New York State Thruway, so residents should expect to hear the white noise of vehicles passing in the background. The house is furnished and is equipped with four bedrooms (three with full or queen beds, one with two twins), two full bathrooms, one living room, an eat-in kitchen, and a 300-square-foot room set aside for studio space.

If two artists who are life partners, but who work independently as artists, desire to work in two separate studios while onsite, one bedroom can be retooled into work space for this purpose, leaving three bedrooms available for occupancy.

Residents are asked to bring their own tools and materials.
