Nestled into the Catskill Mountains, just down the road a spell from the historically unique Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, sits a private getaway so charming and devastatingly comfortable that your body and mind will ache for just one more early morning to snuggle under a quilt atop the over-sized window seat with a cup of fresh ground coffee in one hand and a fine work of literature (or in the Mrs. case a Nicholas Sparks novel) in the other. This dreamy location is referred to as the Retreat at Treegap.
It is so incredibly close to the "downtown" section of Woodstock (an easy 3 minute car ride or healthy stroll downhill) yet it's far enough away from the hustle and bustle, of which there is a surprising amount, of the famous hamlet that you feel as if you and your mate are the only people on earth.
Breakfast is home cooked and served in-room. Morning one consisted of fresh fruit, muffins, breads and biscotti with tea, cider, jellies. Morning 2 was our choice of eggs, french toast, and the shallot, chevre, herb omelet that I ordered. It was served with crunchy grilled think bread. Yummy!
If you're so inclined, the Retreat at Treegap provides free Wi-Fi and DirectTV with a nice flat panel television. I was able to watch MSU crush the Irish on Saturday while the Mrs. finished her book. Simply a perfect Autumn afternoon.
If you're heading up to Woodstock to relive the 60's or to catch Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble (OMG! haha...how amazing. If you love The Band, Dylan, etc. spend the $150 per person and see Levon play in his home - it's unreal) and you're looking for a great place to stay while there you should consider The Retreat at Treegap - Megan and Joan will take good care of you during your visit.
