Hotel Description

Before you fire off that email, let us assure you that Dutchess is indeed spelled with a T, in the manner of upstate New York’s Dutchess County. This Hudson Valley hideaway styles itself a “secret hotel,” and they do a pretty good job of keeping the details mum. It’s a model that’s meant to work via personal recommendations within a self-selecting community of travelers — kind of like Tablet, now that we think of it. So while we can’t spill too many of the beans, we’re happy to sketch out the case for making a bit of a leap of faith.

The style, for one thing, is fantastically restrained. The Dutchess is a farmhouse, and while the interiors have been given a contemporary renovation, it’s a serious, straight-faced one, more reminiscent of an extraordinary vintage find than a reconstructed piece of summer-camp kitsch. And while there’s a bit of tasteful luxury about, it’s far from ostentatious.

What makes the Dutchess unique, though, is its social life. Meals are eaten communally, and even, in some cases, harvested communally. We’re afraid we can’t say much more without giving away some surprises, but trust us: this place is an experience.

This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
