Dovetail + Co and Urban Cowboy partnered to acquire the Alpine Inn in Big Indian, New York, a 27 room Catskills Lodge abutting the Big Indian Wilderness.

With the purchase, Dovetail + Co and Urban Cowboy will renovate the property to include an on-site restaurant, spa, gathering places and nature trails throughout the 68-acre property.

Blending Dovetail’s experience in large-scale lifestyle hotel development and Urban Cowboy’s expertise in intimate hospitality and design, the team will reimagine the storied property and celebrate its most important amenity: the pristine natural environment that surrounds it on all sides. Lyon Porter, known for his eclectic and photogenic design approach, will design all of the rooms and common spaces.

The Alpine Inn has been family owned and operated since 1936 with many guests returning year after year. The team will honor that legacy and learn from the many beautiful memories and stories from the past.
