In the Northern Catskills, The DeWitt Oak Hill is a restored 1865 inn on the banks of the Catskill Creek, just 2.5 hours from NYC, and minutes from Hudson and the slopes. Listed on the National Register, the DeWitt is a blend of vintage and modern.
The DeWitt is an eclectic mix of vintage and modern, with an ever-changing collection of furnishings—which are all for sale.
Welcome drinks upon arrival.
A full gourmet, locally resourced farm to table breakfast is served each morning.
Room 46 is inspired by the town in which it lives, Oak Hill. Branches from trees in the garden reach up to the ceiling, creating a backdrop for the queen-sized bed. A tree stump acts as a side table, and art from times gone by, as well as new paintings, decorate the walls. The room overlooks the Catskill Creek just a few yards away. The bathroom is classic white subway-tile with black accents and vintage accessories; the shower has a luxury rain shower. We feature only locally-made vegetable soaps and cruelty-free shampoo and conditioners.
Guests have access to a two-story great room, which has a beautiful Hollywood Regency curved velvet sofa, a baby grand piano, a flat screen TV and a retro record player—complete with our record selection. There is a library in the upstairs gallery if you would like a little quiet time. We are right on the Catskill Creek. Our garden has multiple seating areas and fireplaces as well as creek access to cool off your toes, sunbathe or read a book laying on one of the huge rocks as the water flows past you. The indoor dining area is the primary space for communal breakfast. Guests can also take their breakfast out to the garden dining area if preferred.
Interaction with guests
The host will be (discreetly) on premises to offer recommendations and to assist as needed.
Other things to note
The DeWitt Oak Hill is a living, breathing vintage shop. Everything you are surrounded by is available for purchase—either in-house or online after you return home. Each sleeping room is curated by individual taste-maker friends of ours and will subtly change as time goes on (and furnishings are sold!). The upstairs gallery exhibits the work of local artists, and the wares of local purveyors will be featured around the entire space, all of which will be for sale and will benefit said artists.
Meals can be arranged for a variety of prices. Please check with us for sample menus.
Children 8 years old or older are welcome. However, please be aware that there are lots of decorative items and art around the house. Use your judgement about whether children will be safe and comfortable, and not destroy things. You know your children :)
This house is animal friendly, but please advise us in advance if you intend to bring your pet. Your animal must be well behaved, and you must clean up after it. Maximum of 1 pet.
