Built in 1962 as a modern escape for city dwellers, the Woodhouse Lodge in the Catskills is perfect for a weekend upstate.

The Woodhouse Lodge, which was recently renovated by New York–based interior designer Megan Pflug, is a "modern meets rural" lodge in Greenville, New York. Pflug, who studied fine art at RISD and now runs a design firm, relocated from Brooklyn to Greenville to open the lodge. She wanted to make the move upstate, and she found the perfect opportunity with this lodge.

The 10-room hotel is a combination of midcentury modern with a classic, historic feel. Pflug describes her decorating style as mixing modern items with antiques to create a space that feels natural rather than overly decorated.

The lodge has a new front patio with plenty of seating.

The first floor of the A-frame lodge is a common space with an open kitchen and lounge area with a fireplace. Pflug considers the kitchen to be the centerpiece of the hotel and she spent much of her time working on modernizing the space. 

The newly renovated kitchen has soapstone countertops and a white ceiling.

Pflug decorated the lodge with a variety of vintage pieces. She wanted to honor the midcentury modern style while mixing it up.

Pflug used shaker rails in most of the rooms to honor the traditional nature of the lodge.
