Of course we will picк the coldest record-breaking weekend of the season for a rоаd trip to the Catskills… But the freezing weather didn't really take away any of the pleasure of that magical trip… We’ve been planing to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city for awhile. We've been looking for something close enough but with charming scenery and most important that touch to the nature that we've been missing in the city… I honestly think that we made the best choice by picking the Catskills.
Where to stay
We stayed at The Kaaterskill Inn, a quiet, rustic little hotel with a sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains and over 32 acres of breathtaking scenery… and what an incredible treasure it was… so romantic and magical with a fireplace in the room and a spa bathroom… alpaca, lamas and goats grazing in front of our window… with gorgeous view of the lake and the boat house from the room. Definitely recommend it.
Where to eat
Cucina is the restaurant that we absolutely fell in love with in the near by Woodstock. This little gem is situated in a restored and rambling farmhouse and serves a delicious, contemporary Italian dishes; good drinks and a yummy desserts.
Where to go
We weren't able to hike in the breathtaking mountains, because of the weather conditions but we had a great time exploring The home and studio of the painter Thomas Cole; Olana - The home, studio and designed landscape of the painter Frederic Edwin Church and Opus 40 - the six-acre bluestone maze that the artist Harvey Fite build for 37 years alone by using only hand tools - very impressive.
What to wear
Going to Catskills in the deep of fall you should definitely prepare warm and cozy clothes. My picк was a soft and comfy sweaters with a crop jeans or an easy jogger pants… big teddy coat and my new favorite pecan suede Chelsea booties by J.Crew. My idea was comfort and warmth and that explained the result.
