The Oldest Hotel In The Country Is Only 2 Hours From NYC
If you were to hop on a silly little road trip to Rhinebeck, NY, you’d not only discover why it’s one of the most beautiful small towns near NYC, but you’d also find that it’s home to the oldest hotel in the country! Beekman Arms has been welcoming guests to take a load off and stay a night since before the Revolutionary War. Operating continuously since 1766, everyone from historical figures and politicians to celebrities have stayed at this Hudson Valley hotel. Beekman Arms was first established in 1704 by William Traphagen as a tavern known as Traphagen Tavern. At the time Rhinebeck (referred to back then as Ryn Beck) was a small settlement carved out of a forested area by the Sepasco Native Americans. The Beekman Arms was added to the original tavern in 1766, named after the Beekman family–back then, Judge Henry Beekman was widely among the original British Crown land owners in the Hudson Valley–and it’s been operating ever since!
