A short break into the lower Catskills, exploring places that offer local fare… so we drove into this tiny village on a lake somewhere west of Poughkeepsie and east of Bethel, NY. A tiny, no-consequence township surrounding a large -ish lake, in very picturesque settings....More

Stopped here for dinner before a concert at Bethel Woods. The deck overlooking the lake was beautiful; it was fun sneaking bread morsels to the ducks. The food was good but we felt like we were seated at the forgotten table. It was a challenge...More
