Developer Robert A. McAlpine and Rockwell Group are restoring a series of historic structures that were originally used to manufacture felt and fur hats 200 hundred years ago in the now popular Hudson River Valley city of Beacon. The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls sits on approximately six acres of land that straddles the Fishkill Creek. Although Beacon was once well known for its industrial focus, it has rapidly become a getaway for art lovers, filled with galleries and home to the legendary Dia:Beacon museum. Immersed in the landscape and culture of the historic Hudson River Valley, the city’s growth since the early 1990s has been remarkable, but throughout its rebirth it has lacked a restaurant or hotel that could capture the increasing number of visitors from the tri-state area or the growing number of residents buying second homes in the area.
The historically significant 19th and early 20th century industrial buildings of the former mill complex were refashioned into an environmentally conscious destination restaurant, hotel, event space, and spa, overlooking the scenic Beacon Falls.
The first phase of the hotel opened with 12 standard guest rooms and two penthouse suites in the Roundhouse building. The rooms will feature stunning views and distinctive works of art from The Roundhouse Art Collection.
The second phase of the hotel, The Mill, consists of two historic mill buildings joined together by a glass vestibule. The Mill will feature 42 guest rooms with one-of-a kind views of both Beacon Falls and Mount Beacon, a spacious lobby with reception area and library on the first level, and a well-appointed spa and gym space on the second level. The Mill will also feature works of art from The Roundhouse Art Collection.
