Mountain View: truly a top-notch B&B experience. The view of the Catskills from various points on the property as well as from the master suite is magnificent, and the pathways throughout the property offer various locations in which one can sit and read, meditate, dream, or simply enjoy the surroundings. The Goddess Path is both magical and inspiring! The interior...

MVR is a multi-faceted "experience". The location is quiet and exceedingly beautiful. From the master suite your window looks out across the valley to the Catskills. Winding through the 20 acres of property there are lovely and beautifully maintained wooded paths that take you to secluded spots for quiet moments of enjoyment of the beauty of what nature offers.
