"This 1765 historic homestead was built as a private estate for poet-naturalist Myron B. Benton, who created a refuge for romantics, naturalists, humanists, and poets, hosting such illustrious guests like Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and John Burroughs. Serving American farm-to-table cuisine sourced from local farms and purveyors from the Hudson Valley, the dining room has become a staple for residents of Amenia, Millbrook, Sharon, and beyond."
"Troutbeck is a 1765 country inn and tavern lovingly restored by new owners. Nestled in a park-like setting, it boasts a rich history of guests seeking a country retreat, and captures the spirit of the like of Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and the naturalist, John Burroughs. Take time for a cocktail as you wander the first floor public spaces and marvel at the inspired decor that amalgamates the historic past with a modern flair."
“Biking, canoeing, rafting in the warmer months, snowshoeing, hiking, and bird watching in the cooler months...and no matter what time of year, eating, drinking, and napping by the wood stove is encouraged!”
"Deer Mountain Inn is like having the perfect weekend home, not too big nor too small, just right. I haven’t had the chance to stay over, but after visiting I can't wait to head back up for a long weekend this fall."
“Get one of the six cozy rooms in this perfect little mountain gem located in one of the arts and crafts cottages built in the 1880s for the Colgate Family. Serene wooded grounds for an idyllic weekend”.
"When traveling, I always encourage my friends to stay at The Stickett Inn. It’s really well done. The rooms are actually suites—well appointed—and the owners are simply lovely. In the summer, they open a little bar serving local crafted beers and liquors. There are also a few delicious cocktails created by my friend Lola Silverman."
"If we are lucky we’ll snag a table at The Corner Hotel in Tivoli for brunch. The owners (Brice Marden and his family) have done a fantastic job redecorating the hotel, which is also home to his outstanding personal art collection. It is set in a charming century-old building and the farm-to-table menu somehow seems to appeal to all members of the family—a rare yet important factor, for sure. More than likely I will see a familiar face in there, too!"
"My husband and I both love The Corner, the restaurant in Hotel Tivoli that features incredible farm to table food by Chef Devon Gilroy sourced from local farmers. The personal art collection of painters Brice and Helen Marden is woven throughout the restaurant and the hotel rooms upstairs."
"Scribner's Catskill Lodge is all about style. I was there on a crisp Fall Thursday afternoon to get a first hand look at the cool space as the guests began to check in for the weekend. Had there been rooms available, I would have joined the party."
