 All rooms and suites in Rooms 12-18 of the South Building have doors opening out onto the back gardens. All guests in all rooms in all buildings have access to the gardens, the upper deck, and the garden gazebo and its woodburning firepit. Breath in the mountain air and view while sunning yourself on one of our plush outdoor chaise lounges.Aerial view of the South Buildings’ upper deck area. In the summertime it's like a little bit of Miami Beach right here in the Catskills...Night view of the North Building. The turret changes color depending on the holiday, our mood, its mood, whatever. It’s like one big mood ring.A closer view of the gas firepit on the upper deck of the South Building area.The flames dance up through lime green crystals. Please note that due to a healthy fear of fire, we only light this firepit in the mornings when there is supervision present or on special occasions.Eat your heart out Chihuly. We hired former guests and visual artists Don and Manon Zinzell to create this 3' by 6' chandelier fantasy for the exterior stairwell in our South Building. It is comprised of 3000 twelve-inch-long plexiglass rods. They had to be individually heated to 310 degrees in an oven and then tied onto the chandelier frame within 30 seconds before cooling off. The Zinzells can custom design just about anything you can imagine, so let us know if you'd like us to make an introduction.Our front lobby is often mistaken for someone's living room. We purposefully furnished it this way to make guests feel at home. The artwork on the walls is from local galleries and our very own Mr. Joseph Massa.We put a skylight roof over the entrance to The Shimmer Spa South so that guests could come and go with ease during all seasons and weather patterns. It's also a great place to come out and sit down if you get a little, well, overheated in the hot tubbie...This is one of our favorite photos. It shows the wonderful view outside the upper walkway of the South Building area. The two suites, George's Spacepad and Genie's Bottle, have windows and doors that open out to this view.Winter provides a different kind of magic at The Roxbury.January and February almost always bless us with literally several feet of snow for our ski buffs. Oh the joys of freshly groomed powder...All buildings work their magic on you at night. We light up our exteriors in a soothing green light (surprise, surprise) and, when combined with the lime green doors, it's a glowing fantasmagorical experience.View of The Roxbury North from The Roxbury South. Even if it’s for just one, brief, shining moment – let there be Camelot.We went through many different hanging plants until we found one that matched our lime green doors perfectly. Sweet potato vines produce a fantastic lime-green leaf. And they cascade so nicely. Cascading coordination. We love that.The Delaware River begins to bubble up out of the earth just a few minutes down the road from The Roxbury. It gurgles its way alongside the road and cuts right through the back of the property.The second floor of The Roxbury North has a covered porch area overlooking some of Roxbury’s charming country architecture. Normally we hate the word charming, but in this case it fits the definition. Chill out with family and friends around our mosaic tile table. Play games, chit chat, eat, drink, and please be merry.Our outdoor gazebo tent is the perfect place to escape if you don't want to be in the sun or if it's raining. You can close the curtains and shut the world out if you so desire.The most beautiful things are sometimes the most lonely.Cobalt blue sky. Lime Green Doors. Bright white building. Flowers in bloom. Sometimes, so suddenly, there is a God.The 'house' part of the property is where our main lobby is located and the entire upstairs is a beautiful two-bedroom suite. It was built in 1860 and has quite a rich history. The most interesting history, though, is being made right now with you, our guests.We went for many years without putting a picture of us on the website, but everyone tells us we should, so, well, we put this on here. Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome, we are your hosts...The Roxbury North as seen across The East Branch of the Delaware River. They’re not Trevi.  They’re not Bellagio. But our fountains still sound pretty darn nice. There’s nothing like the sound of running, gurgling, splashing water.View of The East Branch of the Delaware River as seen from the grounds of the North Building.View from the 2nd floor walkway outside Room #23 The Final Frontier.At the end of each stairwell in the North Building we have our very own Roy Lichtenstein-esque wall mural paintings depicting elements of The Roxbury Experience. What are the characters saying? You’ll just need to come and see!Another stairwell. We call this one the portal stairwell.Close-up of just a part of one of the large murals.The side of one of The Roxbury South buildings. If you don’t like lime green, then The Roxbury is probably not going to make you happy.Part of The Roxbury North 2nd floor covered walkway is painted with birch trees in winter. We wanted it to be like walking through a magical forest.The magical forest glows green with light at night.
