Highs & Lows

  • Turquoise barn is in a really beautiful and remote part of the Catskills, the hills, lakes and woods surrounding the barn are incredible.

  • The owners are lovely and very knowledgeable about the area, not to mention incredible in the kitchen. One of the best breakfasts ever...with plenty of gluten free options.

  • There’s a store in the B&B where you can buy everything from daily farm fresh eggs, local honey and herbs and artwork, and furniture lovingly made by the owner Michael and local artist friends.

  • They offer retreats combining elements of food, art and nature. Take an "education vacation"!

  • The Cockerels will wake you up…take ear plugs.

  • It’s far, but that’s also a good thing…
