When we married in 1986, our dream was to have an Inn. A year later we put down roots in Mount Tremper when we fell in love with a 1940's era tavern, which had a huge bar, a 50 seat restaurant and some land. We planted fruit & vegetable gardens, built a brick courtyard, an upstairs apartment, added flower gardens, a greenhouse, and frog pond.
In 2007, we ventured into lodging by converting the entire tavern into a four room Inn with an intimate 26 seat dining room and later put in a three season heated salt water pool. We're now working on an outdoor shower, changing room and sauna.
The rooms are simple stylish spaces mindful of comfort and privacy with modern amenities. Though we are not a B&B, we stock the rooms with delicious house baked scones, orange juice, seasonal fruit, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea and cocoa as an in-room breakfast. And It is not uncommon to find afternoon treats.
We are hands-on chefs engaged in thoughtful cooking, committed to using best ingredients, including harvest from our organic kitchen garden and are passionate about executing classic techniques to create a spirited and seasonally driven menu. Most everything is locally sourced so home-made tastes really good and the dining room is lovely.
Being green comes naturally in the Catskills, we use eco-friendly cleaning products, recycle & compost.
Located in the high peaks, which boasts thousands of acres of forever wild protected lands, it is a haven for hiking, kayaking, biking, fishing, snowshoeing, downhill & cross country skiing and is close to historical sites and festivals. The Mount Tremper fire tower trail is a perennial favorite as is shopping in the towns of Woodstock & Phoenicia.
People say they love it here, we believe them and think you will love it too.
