The newly-renovated Troutbeck estate.
Relaxation is at the heart of this Hudson Valley retreat, where rich textures and dark tones make an inviting atmosphere that welcomes you in like an old friend
In upstate New York’s cultural and creative corridor, you’ll find the newly renovated Troutbeck country house estate, a former favourite of novelists Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway. Situated in the town of Amenia, on 45 acres of bucolic landscape in the Hudson Valley, the hotel’s 250-year legacy has been reimagined, courtesy of the New York city design studio Champalimaud. Historic details have been restored and furnishings updated to create a look of effortless, luxurious ease.
