Special stay

Valley Rock Inn

A note from the proprietor, Michael Bruno

We are excited to offer you a special two night stay now through the spring 2021 Valley Rock Inn is a passion project and we are proud to have been awarded top honors by the the New York State preservation league for preserving over a dozen historic building and adding to the community in a way that will have a significant impact long term. Our property is comprised of 14 parcels that were purchased all with historic building in dilapidated state that were combined to create an oasis of gardens surround by 19th century barns and houses that have been reimagined and renovated down to the studs. We are 30 minutes from the George Washington bridge in the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains in the village of Sloatsburg NY which is known as the parks region because it is surrounded by 70,000 acres of forever wild parklands.

Our property was design with outdoor fitness enthusiast in mind with easy access to trail heads to hike and bike the nearly endless miles of trails in the forever wild parklands that surround us. There are lakes for kayaking and ridge lines with stunning views to climb.

Our stays offer private guest house for each guest, with use of one to five bedrooms. As the founder of 1stdibs.com, my previous career I collected antiques and 20th century design as I traveled the world to make 1stdibs a global enterprise, you will find many of the pieces used throughout the property. We love beautiful things and wanted to share them with you.

Your two night stay includes access to our mountain club fitness program. During the fall winter season we offer led hikes that go from two hour zen walks along a brook to climbing ridge lines with views of the Catskills and Manhattan from the same spot. We have a 75ft pool that is heated to 85 degrees so you can enjoy swimming laps outdoors, and schedule exclusive time to use our 6,000 sq ft gym.

Your stay includes a two hour led hike and you can book additional time with our guides. Or go visit one of the many places near by; world class fashion shopping less then 30 minutes away at Woodberry Commons, house museums, storm king art center, Dia Becon, farms and right in on our backyard you can shop our art gallery and antiques and design warehouse full of many of the pieces I bought over the years while traveling the world to discover the dealers to join 1stdibs.

We have two restaurants, one indoors and one outdoors. Our beautiful lodge with three fireplaces, bar, lounge and dining is currently only open to special events and the Cantina, our outdoor restaurant which is sold out most weekends but as an overnight guest you will always have a table. The Cantina is all outdoors and under roof, we are known for supplying such generous amounts of heat that you may want take your coat off. We take a warm comfortable outdoor dining experience seriously, we even charge our dining customers $7 per person to make sure we supply abundant warmth. As an overnight guest you do not pay for heat at the Cantina :-).

We hope to see you soon.

Warm regards, Michael Bruno
