Troutbeck has served as an enchanting private estate, country inn and tavern since 1765 and has, for centuries, been a favoured retreat of distinguished guests like Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Completely reimagined by Champalimaud, Troutbeck is now a thoughtfully activated country house conveniently located only two hours outside of New York City. It’s a comfortable retreat, beautifully designed for one to create, contemplate and congregate. Troutbeck reflects its geographic place in the world – the design details reflect the vibrant culture of the Hudson valley and the interiors are designed so as almost every room is connected to the outdoors and the landscape. It reflects its history and derives inspiration from its extraordinary legacy; layered upon its historic roots is a contemporary expression, in design, service, food and amenities. Public spaces feature oversized leather couches, book shelves and velvet textural details, while guestrooms feature vibrant wall colors in shades of burnt orange, rich greens and blues. Throughout the property, historic artifacts and found objects from historic figures and literary icons are on display. Troutbeck has the authentic feel of a home away from home. It is a retreat for the intellectually curious, the artist, the locavore, lover, naturalist and the entrepreneur.
