Camptown: The New High-Style Cabin Retreat in the Catskills
Rivertown Lodge in Hudson, New York, debuted in 2015 and set a new standard for locally sourced, inventively designed hotels in the Hudson Valley and Catskills 100 miles northwest of NYC. Designed by Workstead, Rivertown was the first project of Ramshackle Properties, Ray Pirkle and Kim Bucci’s boutique hospitality venture, and is a favorite Remodelista retreat—and source for natural materials designed to take a beating.
Eight years later, Pirkle and Bucci have just opened their second Ramshackle venture: Camptown, a resuscitated motor lodge and cabin enclave in Leeds, NY, that that they designed themselves. Working with a roster of talented local artisans, they preserved the essence of the down-home resort while imbuing it with a sophisticated rustic-modernist vibe: log walls meet cognac leather. Claim your cabin while the place has yet to be discovered.
