Alexandra Zissu is reporting for the Times Union Little Cat Lodge, a new hotel at the base of Catamount Mountain, has opened. The hotel, located on seven acres in Hillsdale, started welcoming guests on August 10. The former Swiss Hutte offers 14 alpine rooms with private terraces or patios feature beds made from maple trees sourced from Catamount’s ski slopes. Rates for the smallest rooms start at $345 single occupancy per night, during the week. Co-owner Noah Bernamoff said there were some delays in getting the kitchen finished. “We are at the 95 percent spot in terms of the whole project. The rooms themselves are 99 percent and the restaurant is 90 percent,” he said. The 45-seat Tavern, will be open in a few weeks. “We are shooting to open around Labor Day,” said Bernamoff. The chef is Jason Bond, formerly of Bondir Cambridge. Bernamoff, and his partner Matt Kleigman, have their roots in New York’s food world and the Hudson Valley, where they have been living on and off since 2013; Bernamoff is the co-owner Otto’s Market in Germantown. The Dining Room, the lodge's 70-seat restaurant, is scheduled to open after The Tavern. Little Cat is still hiring, mostly for servers, bartenders, cooks and support staff.
