The DeBruce has the fortune and privilege of being nestled in one of the great sleepy river valleys in the United States. She sits on a ledge overlooking the Willowemoc Valley and its namesake river here in upstate New York’s Catskill Park. With its 14 guest rooms, access to hundreds of acres of private land spanning two mountains, a river, several ponds and a private pool, The DeBruce is about the place, the times and the continuing story of our home.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN AMERICA BY ESQUIRE MAGAZINE.
RECOGNIZED BY CONDÉ NAST TRAVELER AS ONE OF THE BEST NEW HOTELS IN THE WORLD
During a stay at The DeBruce the restaurant and its kitchen will undoubtedly be the fulcrum of your stay. You’ve come here to eat and you can anticipate an explorative experience. We think about meals not just singularly but rather how they can connect and form a cumulative story over an entire stay. We have three guides as we develop our menus. The Mountain and Valley where we gather product from our own lands and buy from our farming neighbors. The Heritage of our area which roots us in our past while allowing us to develop its future. And the Care and Comfort of our guests who are the most important ingredient for us.
An outdoor swimming pool (in season) overlooks the valley and provides lounge chairs for in-house guests. For the adventurous, there are also two ponds located on the property, one of which is perfect for a budding fly fisher to make their first cast. The Willowemoc lies just beyond the ponds and offers a place for contemplation and fly fishing. In warmer month, take a plunge in the swimming holes along the river. A walk over our private bridge is the starting point for taking a walk or hike.
