“Peaceful and quite - shhh don't tell anyone please!” Back in august, I needed to get away from the City for a weekend badly. I wanted a nice place near water. Long Island came to mind.
My spouse did a little internet research and came up with something in a different direction, Tumblin Falls in upstate New York.
Once you turn off the main road you are in a different world. Trees all around. The roar of the waterfall. The stream. All adjacent to your B & B.
It immediately felt like my home away from home. No doubt this was the result of meeting hosts Hugh and Linda Curry. They are warm, welcoming and gracious and will do whatever they can to make your visit wonderful.
Our room overlooked the falls. Nothing was more delightful than hearing those falls through the night. I delighted in sitting on the porch during the day surrounded by nature and nature's beauty. The hummingbirds came by to sip at the porch feeder. Chipmunks scampered through the foliage. A Blue heron swooped in to land at the falls.
The mornings started out with a delightful brunch style breakfast on the porch: scrambled eggs with basil, pancakes, elderberry syrup, turkey sausage, OJ, coffee etc. Lots of etc.
We took our bikes with us and biked around the area. We visited some really nice wineries in the area as well as the town of Catskill.
Leave your City "attitude" at home or you will not have a good time. Just throttle back to "idle". This is not the Hilton, folks, this is a B & B in the northern Catskills but everything is neat, clean, and tidy.
This isn't a happening scene. For excitement you can take a dip in the crystal clear, cold pool at the falls. Or visit the hot tub on the deck in the evening. Or sit by the fire and watch the stars. Or hike. Or do all the other things you an't do in the City.
Our first visit was followed by two more in the next two months. And each time was better than the one before. We now call Tumblin Falls our Hudson Valley weekend home, without the maintenance headaches or the mortgage!
“This house is clean & spacious, well equiped kitchen & bathrooms” There are many things to love about this for us. It is lightly furnished without a lot of clutter. The bedrooms are large with space for everyone and everything. The views are magnificent. The location is the best for going to weddings and skiing in Roxbury at Plattekill over the back roads. It takes about 7 minutes to get to either Margaretville or Roxbury.
