10 minutes away from the house in Margaretville and a great stop on the way to the house on Route 28. This restaurant recently re-opened under chef Bryan Calvert, author of the famous Brooklyn Rustic. Besides the great chef, the Restaurant itself is an interesting and fun atmosphere. Located literally above the Binnekill (a stream) that runs through the middle of Margaretville, this structure was originally an ice storage facility where blocks of ice would be lifted up from the stream below. Enjoy views of the stream and ducks in the water below on the deck.

Definitely a good stop on the way into the Catskills from the east, this spot is located directly on Route 28 in a cool valley with the Esopus Creek bustling by behind the restaurant. Featuring a fun mountain themed design and fun spacious atmosphere, this is one of the best restaurants located within the Catskill Park!

This stream-side English pub was opened in a historic house located in the center of Hobart. The house is a pub, restaurant, and offers rooms to stay in. The restaurant is located about 40 minutes from the house, but can be a super beautiful drive and they offer lawn games and a stream-side picnic table area. Pro-tip: Finish eating in time to drive back to the house during the golden hour sunset. The beautiful drive offers rolling mountains with quintessential farmland and streams. A stop in the town of Andes at Wayside Cidery or Weaver Hollow Brewery is a nice touch.

Local Outdoor Activites
Just 2.5 hours from New York, The Western Catskills offer many fun summer outdoor activities. The best part? The Western Catskills are often 10-15 degrees cooler than the sweltering down-state heat!
If you're looking for a quick hike nearby or before the other folks wake from bed. Drive just 5 minutes down the road to the beautiful Palmer Hill Overlook and choose a hike at the trailhead. This will walk you through some wooded areas, over a stream, past old stone walls, and through old Andes New York farmland.(Epi-center of the historic Anti-Rent War!)

Located about 20 minutes from the house, this loop is more of a secret locals spot, but is well maintained a relatively easy hiking. The trail loop meanders through magical forest mountainside in the Catskill Park and is on a North facing mountainside which makes it a nice cool hike on the more hot days. At the top of the loop is a pond originally created by beavers that still has plenty of evidence of beavers. Elevation at the pond is around 2,500ft and will be a few degrees cooler than the valleys which are around 1,300-1,500ft. Pro tip: Bring your shoes that can get wet, and find a stream pool to cool down in. The streams on the eastern side of the loop can offer nice opportunities for this. Just be aware the rocks can be slippery.

Alder Lake offers an easy 2 mile loop trail, but also offers swimming! There are picnic tables at the lakeside. This lake was originally dammed for the resort of which the hotel foundation eerily still stands at the lakeside. This lake is also one of the last spots with native Catskill trout (fishing by permit only here).
