This restaurant is only 10 miles from where you will be staying and it is right on Route 30. It has breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have outside dining, weather permitting. Heaters are set up outside so eating out goes late into the fall. It is a little on the pricey side, but remember you are on vacation and variety is the spice of life!

GREAT BURGERS! Actually I have never had anything here that was not supper yummy! This restaurant is open only on the weekends. It does cater to allergies and people on special diets. The food is a bit more expensive but believe me it is worth it. The atmosphere is great. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Approximately 20 miles from where you will be staying.

Want to go for a kayak or canoe ride? This adventure is only 1.5 mile from where you will be staying. A quiet little pond that was, at one time, used to get ice blocks for ice boxes, before refrigerators! While on your rides you may see turtles, fish, blue heron, muskrats, ducks, and if you are really lucky a Bald Eagle!

This is out near Littlte Pond and will take probably an hour or so to get their - but if you want to teach your kids how to fish - this is the place to do it. They have stocked ponds so everybody catches something! The staff will help with cleaning so if you don't know how to do that - no worries! Once you have taught your kids how to fish you are all set to take on any stream in the Catskills - and there are many. Fishing is a great sport. The season on fishing is April 1 - October 31.

Neighborhoods

Margaretville is a small town in the Catskills. It has several local shops and artisans. There is hiking all around the area. We have a local supermarket (Freshtown) that carries a great beer selection from local breweries, allergy friendly food section, and of course all the other stuff you might need. There is a CVS and a Dollar General. No public transportation or taxi so you will need a car. If you come up on a bus then you will need to rent a car. Night life is limited.

This is about an hours drive from where you will be staying. It is great in the summer as the air temperature is always in the 50's. It is a huge cave with a short boat ride and lots of great little history facts.

In the spring the sap starts dripping and Roxbury Mountain Maple gets busy boiling! You can watch the syrup being made and buy all kinds of maple products. They also sell organic meat raised on their farm. This is fun for the whole family. Approximately 20 minute drive.

The water is excellent here, so no need to buy bottled.

I use a refillable thermos and just carry my ice water wherever I go.

The ticks in this area can be ridiculous!

Please check yourself and your kids after being outside, and before you go to bed. My grandson had 13 ticks on him when he came back from a hike this summer!
