Over July 4, I checked into Scribner’s Catskill Lodge with my mom & sis for some R&R and 1-month out wedding planning. Set at the base of Hunter Mountain, we drank cider, enjoyed some serious sunsets and poured over seating charts in the hotel’s expertly designed living spaces – complete with mid-century leather sling chairs, a fire that was always burning, and book shelves that could have kept me there for days.
The perfect atmosphere at Scribner’s (I loved the complimentary yoga classes) was matched by great food at the hotel’s restaurant, Prospect. Local cuisine with a view of the mountain? Check.
While upstate we made a pitstop at Ron Sharkey’s Antique Barn in High Falls and at one of my favorites, Kabinett and Kammer in Andes. At Ron’s I picked up a vintage picnic basket, which we used to hold all the cutlery at the Friday night welcome dinner for our wedding:
While in Andes we stopped in at Wayside Cider for delicious drinks and bites… The setting is pretty perfect too, complete with a beautiful dark green bar lit with antique lights. From there it’s a 15 minute drive to Bushland Eating House, which might just be my favorite food in the Catskills (and that’s saying something!)
Scribner’s, Thank you for the best mid-summer respite. We can’t wait to return! Till then, a few items to get you in an Upstate state of mind:
