The House & Grounds

Originally built in the 1860s by Cornelius Vanderbilt as a railroad hotel, this Victorian-Era house has been reimagined with a blend of vintage & organic design elements. 

The historic 6000 square foot house sits prominently along Main Street in the Hudson Valley Village of Philmont.  Tucked behind the house & hidden from passersby is an expansive, private backyard with mature maples, evergreens, wildflowers and over 500 feet of lake frontage.  Eight en suite bedrooms are located above the on-site chef-driven "Bar Room", our restaurant which features seasonal fare, organic wines, local beers, & craft cocktails.  Adjacent to the restaurant is The Game Room, a welcoming and comfortable guest lounge overlooking the backyard & lake.

Available Upon Request: Bonfires & Use of Our Canoe on Summit Lake
