Scott & I just had an awesome time at OUTLIER INN – I wish we got to stay longer and explore. Josh, the creator of this magical place created several places that you can stay on the property that are charming. It is a great place to go by yourself, go with your loved one, have a family / friend getaway, corporate retreat, yoga / meditation retreat, create a music festival … it is a place where you can enjoy nature and get inspired.
If you like to cook, hike, swim, visit farmers markets and be surrounded by animals, this is the place for you. Woodridge is a rural community located in the southern Catskill Mountains. It is the place to get away from it all.
Scott & I stayed in the geo dome which was bring your own sleeping bag/ mattresses/ blankets – it was quite big for the two of us but magical. We were able to sit there while it got darker, then as the sun rose we were able to watch it get brighter and brighter. You are amongst trees and ferns and it is so beautiful.
The cool part is that it feels like you are in the middle of the forest but at the same time you have the conveniences of a sink, outdoor shower, kitchen area, and there is the coolest campfire opportunity set up.
We loved the dome to sleep in but it was a great place to host an event, a wedding, put together a mini festival of sorts.
I definitely want to try to use this for one of my clients at some point.
Outlier Inn is located on a farm in beautiful Sullivan County, close to Bethel Woods, the Catskill Park, Neversink Unique Area and Sam’s Point.
Plus there are many animals on the farm. Merino sheep, angora goats, angora rabbits, oberhasli dairy goats, chickens (running free so please leash dogs!), one cat and a dog named Lali. They have a greenhouse and vegetable garden, a pond for doggies to go swimming, and a lake across the street.
There is a full-service recording studio on the premises which is incredible – I know the intensity of working on an album and this seems such an awesome way of making that a bit less stressful or to get those last minute moments of inspiration.
There are hikes that will lead you to rivers, waterfalls and look-out points. Lakes are everywhere and offer great fresh water swimming. The Basha Kill wetland is the largest wetland (over 3,000 acres) in southeastern New York and is home to a diverse population of wildlife and plants.
While there we were able to check out http://www.aromathymebistro.com/
We had a delicious meal with live jazz music in the background. Aroma Thyme Bistro
is the first Hudson Valley Restaurant that was Green Certified. It is in the town of Ellenville. It is so yummy – have the tuna it is incredible – the best tuna I ever tried for sure. It is about 20 minutes from The Outlier Inn. The town where Aroma Thyme is in has some really cute places to check out. There is a diner also about 10 minutes away that was great for breakfast but the next time I stay at Outlier I will just prep and can cook everything right there in the outdoor kitchen.
We also checked out the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is a not-for-profit performing arts center and museum located at the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York, which took place on a parcel of the original Max Yasgur‘s Dairy Farm. I loved checking this out because I went to the 2nd Woodstock which was obviously not as cool as going to the original one in 1969 but it brought back memories of being young and adventurous. Beyond that I really loved looking at the timelines and checking out all the musicians that played that weekend – You hear about Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Crosby Stills and Nash but you dont’t realize all the other amazing musicans that made up the Woodstock Festival so loved seeing that.
I would highly recommend everyone booking a stay at OUTLIER INN you can not go wrong and it is something you can share with your friends or family and have a great time.
Joshua the host was so wonderful to meet -it is so impressive to meet this entrepreneur that created this amazing space. He is a great host and will answer your questions and give you great suggestions.
