My husband and I took a romantic getaway to the Catskill Mountains and stayed at the brand new KENOZA HALL. And although we missed the foliage by a week, it was still beautiful, and a great place to escape during any season!
Kenoza Hall is the newest venture from Foster Supply Hospitality (Arnold House, The DeBruce, etc). Originally a Summer Retreat in the 1900s, this 22 room property has beautiful views from every room. It is quaint and peaceful, and has one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in.
Products in the room and around the property are by ZENOLOGY. Be prepared to want to purchase these for your own home!
The property has an onsite pool for the summer months, wonderful fire pits for the colder months and a lovely spa year round. We were able to enjoy coffee on the terrace each morning and bring wine outside by the fire pit each evening – and roast marshmallows while safely distancing from other guests. (Andrew at the bar makes a great dirty martini).
However, some of the best highlights are the Lake with lakefront activities and on site hiking trails. The restaurant is also fabulous with dishes designed by executive chef RJ Corley. Outsiders have access to the restaurant but reservations are held for in house guests.
Here are some nearby activities and restaurants that are worth checking out during your visit:
– Bethel Woods – The Original Woodstock
– Stone Bridge Arch
– Bruck Brook Alpaca Farm
– BREWERIES: Upward Brewery, Catskill Brewery (plan to grab lunch from the Mexican Food Truck), Calicoon Brewery, Forthright Cidery, Dancing Cat Saloon Distillery.
– RESTAURANTS: Kenoza Hall, Sprinkles (great coffee and baked goods), Barrio Kitchen AND The Local Tap and Table for lake views, North Branch Inn, The Raleigh, Peppinos, and Callicoon Wine Merchant.
Overall, it was a fabulous and relaxing weekend away. The hotel is dog and kid friendly but it was so nice to be there on a romantic getaway just the two of us. For more information or to book your stay, please email me! Shelby@TravelFitLove.com
