The Hotel: Five Luxurious Suites

Constructed circa 1940, and fully reimagined in 2022, the team behind Rest Co. has thoughtfully considered every detail in its execution. Let’s familiarize you with the hotel…

After stepping through the impressive glass entrance, guests are greeted in the hotel’s intimate lobby. Upstairs, five newly renovated guest suites blend modern and farmhouse design, with tongue-and-groove wainscoting, geometric light fixtures, and pristine bathrooms. Guests staying in the two larger, private entry suites can soak in oversized tubs, lounge in dinettes and seating areas, and enjoy private entrances from the exterior of the hotel. Guests in the three main suites have beautiful walk-in showers with oversized rain showerheads, plenty of natural light, desks and work spaces, and seating areas.

An innkeeper’s office with full bathroom on the ground floor allows for staff privacy and management.

Restaurant & Bar at Rest Co.

To the right of the lobby is the bar and dining lounge, a cozy, art deco-inspired restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. With a dedicated mixologist, the operational capacity to batch all of the cocktails, and a wine list curated by Callicoon Wine Merchant, the ten-seat bar is already a top destination.

The restaurant is fully functional, profitable, and easily executed by the core staff. From locally raised ingredients to inventive vegan comfort food, the menu is aspirational, yet comfortable. The staff onsite are trained to make the food with minimal overhead, and maximum flavor and plating.

The Innkeeper’s Cottage

A stone’s throw from the main hotel is the Innkeeper’s Cottage – a 1-bed, 1-bath cottage with bonus sleeping loft, kitchen, living room, dinette, soaking tub, and plenty of WFH areas. The open-plan living space is anchored by a vintage Malm fireplace.

The Grounds: Nearly Seven Verdant Acres

The 1/4 acre pond and 6.52 verdant acres of grass and woodland allow guests to wander and lose oneself for a while.

A mod pool custom made from a shipping container acts as both a refreshing pool in the summer, and as a hot pool during the fall and winter. Hint – This is your ace in the hole for winter bookings.

This landscape also allows for growth across a number of channels, from additional rooms to sleeping tents, and even the perfect spa location by the pond. Not to mention the backdrop for potential wedding and events.
