"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."
"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."
“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!”
