If you’re looking for something a little quainter, check out the Blue Barn Bed and Breakfast located in Ulster County. This rustic 1830s cottage has four rooms, a library, and a lounge with a fireplace, games, and books. A full breakfast made with seasonal, local ingredients is served every morning, and a sampling of local bourbons, teas, and coffee is available for the after dinner crowd.
For a more modern boutique option, stay at Wm Farmer & Sons, which houses 13 rooms and suites in Columbia County. Guests can enjoy a common room that includes a backyard patio, couches, TV, and dining areas. In addition to the hotel, there’s also an onsite barroom and restaurant, which serves up raw oysters, grilled quail, spiced lamb, and specialty cocktails.
