Urban Cowboy Boutique Hotel Comes to The Catskills
Among some of the world’s most anticipated hotels opening in 2020 is the Urban Cowboy Boutique Hotel, situated along Route 28 in Big Indian.
Known for their exquisite, trendy and visually exciting properties in Brooklyn, NY and Nashville, TN, Urban Cowboy is a completely transformed turn-of-the-century lodge nestled on 68 acres of preserved Catskill wilderness with access to the Esopus Creek. Formerly the site of the beloved Alpine Inn, the Urban Cowboy Catskills brings the same level of rich texture, color and opulence to the pristine retreat, which includes 28 rooms plus a freestanding cabin, standalone chalet and multiple log structures. Everything from the ornate vintage furniture, over-the-top wall treatments and breathtaking mountain views makes for luxurious and ultra cozy weekend getaways. Most rooms feature a private deck, fireplace and Japanese soaking tubs, leaving little more for guests to desire.
The main lodge is home to a cocktail bar and restaurant with Chef Tara Norvell at the helm. Co-owner and executive chef of Brooklyn institution Okonomi, Norvell brings her passion for sustainability and holistic food to Urban Cowboy’s dining experiences. Working closely with local farmers, exploring the wilderness to find and forage delicacies, and implementing practices to utilize every ounce of food, Chef Tara’s approach is sure to deliver a fresh approach to the often overused “farm-to-table” cuisine.
With a spa and glamping-style tents arriving later in 2020, Urban Cowboy is an exciting new project that will surely inspire love and appreciation for the Catskill Forest Preserve it inhabits. Now open for booking, visit their website to learn more.
