Notes from the website: Located 2 hours north of New York City in the western Catskills, The North Branch Inn is an elegant fourteen room retreat in the quaint town of North Branch. Breakfast is included with your stay and is offered in our Parlor or outside in our gardens. Our setting allows for a quiet escape from the world, and similar to our sibling properties, offers an experience more similar to staying with friends rather than in a traditional hotel.
Nestled next to a small creek, North Branch was officially named in 1851, and constituted not much more than 7 families, a general store, post office, and a bowling alley. Famous for its orchards and apple cider, a great variety of apples grew here and were prized all over the world. Time has stood still in this small corner of the world where this still holds true today.
