Nest Inn is a well-known boutique hotel right in the center of the river hamlet of Narrowsburg. This former two-family house has been renovated a couple of times, and in recent years, served as office space as well as apartments. Local shopkeeper (and Brazilian native) Anna Bern—whose Nest lifestyle boutique is one of the key anchor tenants in town—renovated the building in 2014, and received a license to operate as a hotel. She set herself up in one of the smaller apartments, kept an office rental space up front, and then transformed the remaining space into four splendidly chic, en-suite hotel rooms.

One of the better owner perks of this quaint setup is the rooms and lobby are on lockboxes—there is no requirement for staff other than a cleaning person. Bustling Main Street is a few steps away, with restaurants, coffee shop, wine store, Italian deli, book store, clothing and lifestyle stores for your guests.
Each of the four luxury rooms has been meticulously designed by Anna, who is also one of the area’s leading interior designers. All furnishings, fixtures, linens and towels are included in the purchase price. Rooms are set with vintage and antique furniture sourced from local and global markets; beds are dressed with designer linens; towels are soft, organic cotton. Like Nest store, the vibe is luxurious without pretension. A cozy place to land.
And for those who think decorating is half the fun of opening a new place, there’s a studio apartment and a 2-room office, recently occupied but not renovated.
