Highs & Lows

  • The food program is next-level! The 9-course tasting menu & breakfast (included with your stay) were some of the best meals I’ve ever had. The chef was fully accommodating to my vegetarian diet.

  • The property is situated on sprawling private land and offers outdoorsy activities from hiking, to fly-fishing and pool lounging for every type of guest.

  • The town of Livingston Manor is just down the road for off-property hangs; artisanal eateries, breweries & shops.
