This New Hotel Room In The Catskills Is Straight Out Of A Magical Fairytale in Forbes
by Michelle Gross
Three hours outside of New York City, The Faerie Forest is the stuff dreams are made of.
Once upon a time, in June of 2020, a whimsical hotel called The Roxbury at Stratton Falls was opened deep in the heart of the Catskill mountains. About a three-hour drive outside of New York City, the hotel — a successor to its nearby sister property The Roxbury Motel— was destined to become an out-of-this world experience for wayward city-dwellers looking for an escape from reality.
The lifelong dream of Joseph Massa and his partner, Gregory Henderson, the project was completed earlier this summer, and if you’re thinking this hotel is primed for your Instagram feed, you’d be right. However, its recent unveiling of Room 43 better known as the Faerie Forest Cottage earlier this month, could be its most magical and inspired project yet.
“With a little sprinkling of faerie dust, we are tickled sparkling lime green to finally unveil The Faerie Forest Cottage,” co-owner of The Roxbury Gregory Henderson told Forbes. “We’re so thrilled to finally be able to share a bit of the magic to celebrate the cottage’s unveiling and we’re looking forward to welcoming many guests to experience its wonder.”
The eighth and final whimsical tower cottage on property, the Roxbury, which is also home to a Game Of Thrones inspired Crown of the Pendragons room and Cinderella’s Gown equipped with an 18-foot ball gown doubling as a bed canopy and an enormous morphing pumpkin, is nothing short of an out of this world experience.
Nothing about the cottages or guest experience here are ordinary. But who wants ordinary these days anyway? Here’s an inside look at what you can expect to find inside Faerie Forest Cottage.
