"The single most important thing we're doing is trying to reach back and project the legacy of [legendary talent manager and entrepreneur] Albert Grossman, who created the compound," says John Fitzgerald, one of the partners running the Bearsville Theater compound near Woodstock. "The site needed to be integrated; we built the central bluestone courtyard and fire pit to pull together the three restaurants and the theater. The zoning permits 40 hotel rooms, and we're developing a site plan for 40 tiny houses in the woods, connected by footpaths, built to LEED Platinum standards. The property is exquisite, and we've spent the last couple of years restoring the level of excellence across the board, repainting, bringing a master chef to the café. Albert's widow, Sally, lives across the stream; she's been somewhat involved conceptually, and she's been smiling a lot." The key to the legacy: live music six nights a week.
