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 north of NYC. Designed by Workstead, Rivertown was the first project of Ramshackle Properties, Ray Pirkle and Kim Bucci’s boutique hospitality firm, 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 big venture: Camptown, a resuscitated motor lodge and cabin enclave in Leeds, NY, that they designed themselves (their creative firm is Ramshackle Studio). 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.
