Spend a long summer weekend exploring the grounds of The Dutchess, an idyllic, 236-acre Hudson Valley estate in the Catskills. Never heard of it? That’s how The Dutchess wants it—this secret hotel is solely for in-the-know travelers. To spend the night, you have to know the owner or be referred by a former guest...or be an Inspirato Member.

Enjoy a curated, all-inclusive weekend at this secret spot, where you’ll sit down to a multi-course feast beneath the forest canopy, with a menu carefully crafted by executive chef Mark Margiotta. Enjoy a pampering massage, a restorative yoga class, and a tour of the biodynamic farm, where you can pick fresh veggies and herbs for your meals. Bike along the Hudson River to the charming town of Rhinebeck and hike to Browns Pond.

Please note: This is an experience for a curious, thoughtful traveler who is looking for an escape from their normal surroundings. All 14 rooms at The Dutchess are uniquely furnished with rustic antiques. The bed linens are expensive, but intentionally unironed—and, while the sheets are pulled taut, the blanket and coverlet are presented artfully rucked. There are no TVs in the guest rooms—on the bureaus lie matches and palo santo smudge sticks. Discover a hidden gem in the Catskills you never knew existed.
