US-based outdoor lodging and hospitality brand Loge Camps is to expand to the country’s east coast with five upcoming properties.

Opening in the first half of 2024, the sites will span from the Berkshires in Massachusetts to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina.

Distinct draws

Loge Camps’ carefully curated selection of new camps along the US east coast will bring its network to a total of 17 open and operating or in-development camps across the country’s Pacific northwest, mountain west, and southwest.

Each property has a distinct draw, bringing to life the diverse recreation offerings and highlighting the communities of each location.

New destinations

The east coast expansion will comprise the following sites: Lenox, Massachusetts within the Berkshires region; Palenville, New York in the Catskill Mountain range; Southport, Maine, with rooms within a sprawling oceanfront property; Mount Snow, Vermont; and Asheville, North Carolina in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Facilities at each will include a bar and café, pool and wellness amenities, and meeting and event space. The Catskills camp will also feature cabins as well as rooms, plus a full service restaurant.

Beyond providing quality accommodations, Loge Camps aims to enrich guests’ experiences with amenities including Traeger Grills in outdoor kitchens.

Updates investment

The newly acquired properties are currently in various stages of development. Loge Camps plans to open these east coast locations in time for the upcoming summer of 2024.

The company breathes new life into properties that have a rich history but are in need of updating. Instead of starting from scratch, Loge invests in updating and renovating existing structures. This approach is intended to  merge conservation and sustainability with a focus on preserving the charm of each location.

Ambition realised

Cale Genenbacher, Loge Camps founder and CEO, stated: “It’s long been an ambition of ours to bring Loge to the east coast. The Hudson Valley and nearby pockets of the east coast are where I initially fell in love with climbing, skiing, kayaking and the outdoor community we seek to serve.

“Our passion for adventure, commitment to community involvement, and attention to the values cherished by outdoor enthusiasts make us a great fit for the east coast, just like we have been out west.”

Loge Camps blend outdoor experiences and comfortable accommodations. The company recently secured US$16 million in investment to add these new destinations, experiences and amenities to its current network of properties.
