If you’ve been following my Instagram and reading my last few posts then you know last weekend Thomas and I were away. Also, if you live in the concrete jungle (NYC) then you will also know that getting away as often as you can is practically NECESSARY. I can’t stress enough how big of a difference it makes when you leave the city for just a few days. We went up to Hunter with our friends Stephanie and Andrew and had a great time. I mean, we literally only ate, relaxed, ate, played Card Against Humanity, and ate some more! If you have any questions about the property – please feel free to leave me a comment1
Scribner’s Catskill Lodge : Rustic and minimalist yet chic, this boutique lodge has everything you need for a quick trip. Scribner’s has fireplaces, swimming pools, pool table, and an amazing on site restaurant. It’s a 2.5/3 hours away from NYC and feels like a world away. Our duplex suite had a fire place and porch with stunning views of Hunter slopes. The s’mores, cider and magazines waiting for us in our rooms quickly made us feel at home. There is no better place to stay in the Catskills then this lodge. We are already planning a trip back sometime in the Fall when the foliage will be at it’s most beautiful.
EAT + DRINK
Prospect Restaurant at Scribner’s : This farm to table restaurant is fantastic! We actually didn’t eat anywhere else! Breakfast, brunch and dinner all at the same spot! It was soooooo good! The staff was all great but I gotta tell you our favorite was Allen, our waiter – every dish he recommended was right on and it was really nice to see a familiar face everyday. What do I recommend you eat? For breakfast, try the pancakes…I really never order pancakes but after my friend ordered them, I had to!! They were delicious…and for dinner, get the burger if you’re starving (huge is an understatement lol!) and try the octopus dish as an appetizer – so yummy! For the drinks try the Ebb and Flow – it’s got rum and coconut…need I say more?
Chill. Literally take a break and just read a book, take in the mountainous views, play cards…typically I would tell you to go hiking and blah blah but to be honest, sometimes is just great to do NOTHING. 🙂
