The hotel complex comprises four historic buildings, each with its unique character and charm. It is an ideal spring retreat for those looking to cozy up with a book by the fire in the main restaurant space, hike the nearby Catskill Mountains, or enjoy a glass of biodynamic wine from local purveyors while enjoying a picturesque view of the town. The hotel is the brainchild of Taavo Somer, an acclaimed restaurateur, entrepreneur, and hotelier.
