Just one and a half hour's drive (two hours for the leisurely) from New York City and you'll find yourself in the heart of the Great Northern Catskills, home to the legendary Deer Mountain Inn. Some weeks back a much-needed break from the hustle saw me find my way into their Wheeler Room, where my first call of order was a long soak in the very large freestanding bathtub, followed by a robe-adorned kick back next to the stone fireplace. This marked the start of the best downtime I've had in a while; super fine dining with a rustic flair, games of billiards on their antique pool table, exploring the mountain and outlooks on the resident Gator vehicle, all spotted with a lot of chilling, really good wine, and amazing hospitality. Recommended for those who like to kick it in style, lounge in the lap of rustic luxury, and be immersed in some of the best that nature has to offer. Get the full run down below.

LONG READS

When the first episode of Twin Peaks aired, I didn’t see it. It was the spring of 1990 and I was in shock. My grandfather and grandmother had just died unexpectedly of different causes less than twenty-four hours apart, on April 1st and 2nd, respectively. I was 12 years old and felt as if I was in a fever dream. Their deaths were ghastly and remarkable and strange and heart wrenching and I felt like for two weeks my body had left the earth, a pre-teen balloon, floating above their home of Ft. Worth, Texas watching streams of mourners as they arrived with potato salad and Ricky’s BBQ and chocolate cake.
