The back porch at Foxfire Mountain House. Bathroom corner details.
Our home for at least 20 of the 50 hours we spent at Firefox Mountain House.
A closer look at the heavenly stonewashed linen sheets.
The fireplace and communal area. Wine-drinking and lounging is actively encouraged.
The foxy wallpaper from one wall of our Foxfire bedroom. Another comfy reading corner.
One of many delightfully comfortable reading corners. Black hats and fringe coats—Catskill weekend essentials .
A small selection of goodies from the daily breakfast spread.
The lake at Foxfire. Near this is a firepit and lakehouse which can hired out for events.
The dining room. Not seen: The tea cabinet and the evening’s cheese and wine selection.

The seasonal breakfast—think upside-down fruit cake, fresh beignets, eggs, homemade granola, and a never-ending supply of coffee.
Every corner of the property is beautiful.
This isn’t a true minus, but you will need a car or a wad of cash for cabs.

Restored 100-year old rustic country inn.
Relaxed, rustic, country elegance with a few modern, global trimmings.
Off the grid, but a short drive from loves of yummy food and beautiful walks.
Self-serve...there is a record player and a large collection of vinyl to choose from.

Foxfire was lovingly put together to by its owners, Eliza and Tim. Tim is a former chef and also cooks up a delicious and ever-changing array of breakfast every morning for all of the guests.
Not in the straight-forward sense, but they have a bar for specific occasions - for example, Saturday night's cheese and wine hour.
No, but they did leave a bottle of wine out to welcome our arrival.
Yes and it's free.
You could bring them, but you'll probably have a better time if you leave them at home.
Moderate and completely worth it considering that breakfast is included every day and that there was wine and cheese on the Saturday evening.

Delicious seasonal food in an old-school roadside diner.
Overlook Mountain hike
It’s a long journey uphill, but the view from the top is incredible.
