We are delighted to welcome The Roxbury, Contemporary Catskill Lodging as a Catskills Trout Tales Founding Partner!

Featured on HGTV as “One of the Most Amazing Hotels in the Entire Country,” The Roxbury breaks the mold a bit. The colonial house might put you in mind of a bed and breakfast, and the architecture of the adjoining buildings are reminiscent of pre-modernist classics. Rooms, however, are anything but traditional, with design themes that range from the vibrant and contemporary to the flamboyantly retro. The idea is not minimalism but a sort of maximalism, throwing the usual boutique clichés out the window. Plenty of hotels call themselves “playful,” but few have anything that even begins to approach The Roxbury’s ability to combine elements of intense whimsy with classic elegance.

At the same time, the Roxbury honors the boutique-hotel conventions that really matter. Bathrooms are stocked with top-shelf bath products and linens, while the bedrooms are fitted with all the proper technology including free-streaming Netflix. And no country escape is complete without a spa, in this case a need that’s more than adequately fulfilled by the full-service Shimmer Spa.

Condé Nast Traveler extolled “Every Room Will Make You Feel Like You’re on a Movie Set,” but that doesn’t mean they are not real. At The Roxbury, fantasy becomes reality.
