Extra Persons

Room rates are based on two-person occupancy in a guest room and 4-person occupancy in a suite. Some room types can accommodate extra persons, and in some cases with extra bedding (day bed, sofa bed, or crib). To request extra bedding or a crib, please inform the front desk. Nightly rates for extra guests are $30 per adult & $15 per child under the age of 12.

Smoking Policy

Little Cat Lodge is a smoke-free property. Please be aware that, if you or your guests choose to smoke in a guestroom, a $500 cleaning fee will be added to your bill. There are ample areas outdoors for smoking away from other guests and we kindly ask that you dispose of your smoking waste in a safe and non-littering fashion.


Little Cat Lodge has (2) dog-friendly rooms (1 king, 1 double) & we are happy to host one (1) well-socialized, well-trained dog per reservation. No suite will accommodate a dog. A pet-fee of $50 per night/per pet will be applied to your bill if you reserve a guest room. If your dog is not used to traveling and may become agitated and bark, disrupting other guests, please consider this in your travel plans. In all public and common areas, both indoors and out, dogs must be leashed/under full control of their handler. Per county health department regulation, unless your dog is a certified service animal (emotional support not applicable), they will not be permitted in any indoor dining areas. Any property damages caused by pets will be assessed and may be charged at the sole discretion of management. No cats are allowed on property. 


Our restaurant at Little Cat Lodge highlights the comforts and bounty of our Hudson Valley setting. Walk-ins are welcome, but we strongly recommend making a reservation on weekends. Reservations for parties of 6 or fewer can be made via Resy; for larger parties, please contact our restaurant team at See "The Restaurant" page on our website for the most up-to-date hours & menus, and to book a table.

When joining us in the dining spaces, we kindly ask that you wear appropriate attire. Bare feet, ski/snowboard boots, and clothing with offensive symbols or commentary will not be tolerated.

Swimming Pool

Our in-ground pool is located east of the hotel lobby and is available for all hotel guests. The pool is open from seasonally from sunrise to sunset. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are available for use and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Pool towels can be obtained at our front desk; please leave any used towel in the wicker basket by the pool gate.

The pool is not monitored by a lifeguard, therefore, it is the guest’s responsibility to follow the pool usage rules (as posted in the pool area) and to ensure their own safety, and the safety of their children in and around the pool area. Little Cat Lodge ownership expressly waives any and all liability in the event of injury or potential death as a result of pool usage. For the safety of all, please keep the pool access gate closed at all times.

While we greatly encourage a frosty beverage to enjoy poolside, please note that glass is prohibited in the pool area; our front desk agents or bartender can gladly assist with pool-safe glassware.

Barrel Sauna

To turn the Sauna on, please rotate the right dial clockwise to the 1 position, you will hear a click. Please be advised that the sauna turns off automatically after an hour.  

  • While we would like our guests to take advantage of the sauna & experience it to the fullest with friends & family, please be considerate to other guests who also would like to use the amenity, perhaps in private. Take turns and allow others to share the experience. 

  • Preferably wear a bathing suit when using our sauna; don’t forget to take your LCL robe & your shoes with you. Remember to not wear your contacts or eyeglasses in the sauna, and we recommend removing jewelry also.

  • Take a quick shower prior to going in. Sit for a moment to adjust to the temperature & ladle a little water on the rocks, which will create steam and heat; half a cup every 5 minutes should be enough. Take breaks & remember to hydrate! 

  • Kids of any age can use saunas, but some experts recommend kids be 6 years or older before enjoying the heat. This is because young children can't regulate their body temperature as well as adults. We kindly request that anyone under the age of 16 be accompanied by an adult when using the sauna. We do not recommend those who are pregnant or suffer from chest pain (angina), poorly controlled high blood pressure, or other serious heart issues to use our sauna.
