About the Venue
Located on an historic 100-acre estate overlooking Lake Myosotis in Rensselaerville, New York, the Carey Conference Center combines a 50-year tradition of superior group hospitality with 21st century convenience and technology.

This special retreat includes:
Attendees contact Amtrak on their own to schedule and to pay for their own Amtrak transportation to Albany-Renssalear (not "Albany") station prior to 5:00 p.m. Friday, March 22nd. The Carey Conference Center will provide one complimentary shuttle run to and from the Albany-Renssalear Amtrak station for ABC seminar attendees.
Those are the only times for the complimentary shuttle so attendees should arrange for their own Amtrak arrival before 5:00 p.m. Friday, and departure after 6:00 p.m. Saturday.Taxi fare to/from the train station to Carey is about $108 one way, so, you’ll want to make sure that your schedule coincides with the free shuttle run to avoid having to pay for a taxi ride.
If you're arriving by train, please provide your arrival train and time along with your cell phone just in case we can't find you at the station.
The Carey Conference Center is located less than 30 miles southeast of Albany and is easily accessible by car, train, bus or plane. But let’s face it: if you’re looking for the hustle and bustle of city life, you won’t find it here. What you will find is nature – pure and simple – from the sweeping vistas of the Catskill and Helderberg Mountains to nearby Lake Myosotis and its magnificent waterfalls. Here, you’re more likely to hear the call of a heron than the blare of a siren. And our repeat visitors wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, our guests cite our unique and “distraction-free” setting as one of our greatest attributes. We couldn’t agree more.
