Mountain retreat Scribner’s Catskills Lodge is scheduled to open in New York this October. The property, designed by Brooklyn, New York-based firm Studio Tack, will be set on 20 acres, and will have modern interiors though will also honor the heritage of the existing 1960s building with eclectic furnishings.

The two-story lobby will be flooded with sunlight, thanks to two overhead skylights.

Staying true to the original architecture, several rooms will have high-peaked ceilings and lofted gathering and sleeping areas. Select guestrooms will also include a fireplace. Guestroom floors are hardwood, while terracotta tiles line each bathroom, complemented by overhead rain showers. There will be vintage pattern rugs and custom furniture and artwork in the rooms.

The property’s 110-seat onsite restaurant — the Guest Lounge — will have 270-degree mountain views. Measuring 1,850 square feet, its interior will have wood finishes. There will also be an outdoor patio complete with a firepit.
