  • Breathe Inn really is the coolest B&B in the Catskills. Great design, tons of space, a pool, sauna, yoga room and most importantly NO tacky chintz!

  • Camella & Marlon are cool, you’ll want to chat to them forever about NY back in the day, as well as everything that’s happening in the Catskills.

  • Marlon is a chef by trade, so the breakfast is out of this world and healthy.

  • Great for kids and adults alike.

  • Silent...yep, totally silent, so silent it’s weird.. the best night's sleep you’ll have in months.

This is Breathe Inn. It’s the coolest B&B Upstate. A few miles from Phoenicia and Woodstock, the design is modern (no crocheted doilies here) and the owners, who live half the time in Brooklyn, are cool, really cool. You’ll wish they were your friends.
