Piaule Catskill is a minimalist property in Catskills, New York designed by Garrison architects. The boutique hotel was designed by Nolan McHugh and Trevor Briggs, founders of the homeware brand of the same name. The property provides a retreat for city dwellers with its 24 cabins, a main communal area and a luxury spa.
Piaule Catskill’s cabins have floor-to-ceiling windows that extend from wall to wall and offer sweeping views of the surrounding forest landscape. Minimalist furnishings complete the clean aesthetic. These include pieces by Kati von Lehman, organic bed linen from Portugal, Japanese glassware, and beds and accent tables by Piaule. The en suite bathrooms have underfloor heating and bespoke toiletries made in collaboration with Village Common.
The common area, which is housed in a spacious cabin, includes the property’s check-in area, the restaurant and the lounge areas on the ground floor. Large floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with natural light and offer a full view of the vast landscape. The tables designed by Piaule next to the Carl Hansen & Son seating combine design and comfort. One floor below is the spa and wellness area with a steam bath with natural bluestone, a sauna lined with cedar wood and a cold plunge pool.
