The Eastwind Hotel is the debut project of a new group Bjorn Boyer, Julija Stoliarova, Daniel Cipriani and John Burnett.
The complex comprises two original buildings, as well three A-frame lushnas – or glamping pods – on a sprawling hillside facing Windham Mountain.
Renamed the Bunk House and the Hill House, the two existing, detached structures were remodelled to accommodate 16 guest suites, including two smaller “writer’s studios”.
In the Bunk House are the hotel’s reception area and the Salon lounge. Custom furnishings – including a wooden dining table and bar counter – are accompanied by a Malm fireplace, a vintage mid-century library hutch, and assortment of modern chairs. Floors are covered in wood reclaimed from the original 1920s structure.
Drawing on Scandinavian style, the interior has a simple white, navy, and black colour palette. Decor, meanwhile, offers bolder accents.
“We started with that clean Scandinavian look, and then warmed it up a bit with earthy and natural colours, textiles, and artwork,” Eastwind’s creative director Julija Stoliarova told Dezeen.
She described the guest rooms as “mid-century electric with a hint of clean urban design,” intending to capture the Swedish philosophy of lagom, which translates to “just the right amount”.
Inside are custom bed frames, chairs by Masaya & Co, and Otis and Eleanor bamboo speakers. Pops of colour come from custom Alexis Sassard yarn art on the walls, decorative Natti Natti pillows, and House of Hackney closet wallpaper.
Behind black barn doors are en-suite bathrooms with farmhouse sinks, painted floor tiles, and brass finishes.
The three A-frame micro-cabins are located up the hill from the main house, and intended for those seeking deeper immersion into nature.
“The lushnas are very minimalist – just the structure and bedding – it’s all about the views and being outside in nature,” said Stoliarova, whose childhood in rural Lithuania also inspired the project.
Measuring 16 square metres, each hut features a triangular glass wall that looks out across Windham Mountain. The glazing is intended to offer insulation, making the rooms suitable all year round.
Queen beds, Frette linens, and private bathrooms dubbed “rain rooms” ensure an upscale camping experience.
Guests are also provided with wildlife journals and grilling equipment to utilise fire pits, as well as access to a barrel sauna to round out their Scandinavian-style getaway.
Located in southeastern New York State, the Catskill Mountains are a popular getaway for New York City dwellers. Also in the region, Brooklyn-based Studio Tack has transformed a 1960s guesthouse into a boutique hotel with snug interiors and impressive mountain views.
