Adventures at Warwick

Warwick Conference Center, Warwick, NY is located in Orange County, approximately fifty miles northwest of New York City and less than 5 miles from Vernon, New Jersey (near High Point, NJ where three states adjoin – NJ, NY and PA).   

Our rural setting lets you leave the world behind and immerse yourself in the experience of the natural world. This rustic center, originally built in the 1920’s, sits on 465 acres of pristine land and has the charm of a quiet country setting that is perfect for relaxation and discovery. The lush grounds offer eight miles of beautiful hiking trails and breathtaking views. There is a one-mile, easy walking area that is favored by the less adventurous.

You will enjoy all meals at the Warwick Conference Center served buffet style in our country dining room. There are at least two options made available at every meal to meet the most discerning pallet. Many of the meals served are farm to table. Specific dietary restrictions are gladly accommodated with advance notice. No guests have ever gone away hungry!   

The West House provides guests comfortable, country inn style lodging. All guest rooms have private baths and air-conditioning. A TV is available in the main lounge, where guests may gather for friendship and relaxation. Wi-Fi is available in the common meeting areas.
