The story

While difficult to mark a "beginning," the soul of the resort was born when, at the turn of the century, the Wenzel family decided to build a boarding house on their substantial land holdings in Callicoon Center. The family's land was home to acres of farmland and a gristmill for grinding flower powered by a waterwheel on the river.

In the 1940's the Hill family purchased the property from the Wenzel's and began the transition from boarding house to vacation resort. The 1950's brought the onset of the post-war economic boom, prompting a growing interest in leisurely drives, quaint resorts, and fresh mountain air.

Throughout their stewardship, the Hill family continued to develop and expand the resort, adding outbuildings both in the valley and on the ridge. More resort activities were added, and a growing demand finally necessitated the construction of an on-site kitchen. No longer a single villa, the resort shortened its name to simply "Hill's," inspiration for its name today.

The people behind the property

Callicoon Hills was recently re-imagined in 2020 with fresh new ownership by Implied Hotels. Implied Hotels focuses on drawing on inspiration from the past, the community of the present, and the potential of the future. The result is property narratives that are authentic, not contrived nor bland. Implied Hotels also owns the Coachman Hotel.
