Surrounded by 250-acres of formal gardens, woodlands and pastures, great minds have escaped to Troutbeck for hundreds of years. The estate hotel has been modernized, conveying a contemporary ease whilst achieving an unassuming standard of luxury. Overseen by Champalimaud Design, our aesthetic — including guestrooms and suites, public areas, event spaces and detailed gardens — elegantly balance original historical details with modern sensibilities.
Though it took longer than two hours to get here from New York City then, Troutbeck has been a gathering place for great minds since its founding in the 1700s. Emerson, Thoreau and naturalist John Burroughs visited in the 1800s and two significant early meetings of the NAACP — known as the Amenia Conferences (1916 and 1933) — took place here, memorialized by W.E.B. Du Bois in the Troutbeck Leaflets. All this to say, this property has inspired creativity and resourcefulness for centuries.
