The Best 48-Hour Catskills Getaways for Couples
September 1, 2016
Donít be surprised if, upon arrival, you feel like you just got out of the Doctorís Tardis. This hamlet is all about its historic roots, which is why youíll catch baseball players in 1900s-era uniforms (complete with funky, old-school collars) out on the Kirkside Park field on Saturdays, as well as historic homes and, on the townís outskirts, working farms. Time feels like it stands still there, so slow down accordingly.
How to get there: The Trailways bus doesnít stop in Roxbury, but it does hit several outlying towns like Fleischmanns, Arkville, and Margaretville. So your best bet is probably your own wheels. Again, youíre hitting I-87 north for about three hours.
Where to stay: The Roxbury Motel is one of the most talked-about hotels in the Catskills, and for good reason. It takes eccentric to a whole new level by offering themed rooms, like The Wizard of Ozís Emerald City, and... Coconut Cream Pie. Really. Donít lick any walls.
What to selfie: Get muddy with an ATV tour through 400 acres of Catskills mountain views at Stone Tavern Farms (which is also dubbed one of the best wedding destinations in the Catskills, if youíre getting any ideas.) Roxbury is also close to the Catskill Scenic Trail, a 23-mile flat hike along the old railroad through the Catskillsí mountain views and farmlands, if you prefer to adventure on foot. Afterward, clean up for a fancy dinner at Peekamoose Restaurant.
