Housing & Meals
Sunbridge students have a variety of housing and dining options available to them while on campus.
Holder House, located just behind the Main House, is the dormitory serving students and visitors to our “Threefold Community” campus. Built in 1991 through a partnership of Sunbridge and the Threefold Educational Center, Holder House houses guests from Sunbridge, the Pfeiffer Center, the Seminary of the Christian Community, and Eurythmy Spring Valley. Residents of the 40 guest rooms share the use of four kitchens, thirteen bathrooms, and a coin-operated laundry facility.
Reserving a Room
Room reservations for Holder House are handled directly through the Threefold Educational Center and are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, according to opening dates as specified on the Threefold website. Read about threefold housing and submit an online housing request form.
Many families in our community rent out guest rooms to visitors who come to campus to participate in programs, courses, and workshops. “Home Stay” accommodations vary, but most are within walking distance of campus. All arrangements are made directly between homeowner and guest; Sunbridge assumes no responsibility for Home Stays. View Home Stay information to download the latest list of accomodations.

Camping is limited locally and is not allowed on Threefold property. Threefold’s Home Stay list will indicate if any local homeowners offer a camping option on their property. Within 15 miles of Sunbridge is Beaver Run Campground, a well-run campground operated by New York State and situated in a beautiful setting in Harriman State Park.
Located adjacent to the Main House, the Café is the “go-to” place for Sunbridge students, and the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious meal or snack prepared using mostly local and/or organic ingredients. Dine indoors or outside on the (seasonal) terrace. Learn about the Café’s current menu and hours on their website or Facebook page or purchase discounted meal plan options for summer 2018.
Hungry Hollow Co-op
Located within easy walking distance of campus, on the corner of Chestnut Ridge and Hungry Hollow Roads, the Hungry Hollow Co-op is a fully-stocked natural foods market open to the public. The Co-op carries fresh biodynamic and organic produce, health/body care products, groceries, prepared foods, and much more. There is limited outdoor seating.

Hand ’n Hoe
Run by the Rudolf Steiner Fellowship Community, the Hand ‘n Hoe cafeteria serves fresh lunches and hand-scooped ice cream on Friday afternoons from noon to 5 pm. You can also purchase bread and baked goods, Duryea farm yogurt, seasonal and frozen biodynamic produce, and unusual handmade gifts (mostly created by community members), and there’s a thrift store in the basement. The Hand ‘n Hoe is located across from the Threefold Auditorium on Hungry Hollow Road.
