Located at the skirts of Hunter Mountain in Catskills, Scribner's Lodge can give you the hikers dream get away as well as marshmallow snobs cozy lodging.
After stepping into the charcoal colored wooden structure, the charm of the lobby is engulfing. The lobby houses multiple couches and desks for reading, working, and playing board games. The couches are garnished with furry and knitted throws. In the center of it all, is the fireplace, surrounded by more comfortable seating. You can self serve yourself Birch Coffee, while reading or working in the lounge area. Use of pine, juxtaposed by blue couches and patterned throws adds to the overall coziness of the space.
Our king suite room did not disappoint either. The loft room had a balcony as well as its very own fireplace. The living area of the room had the long bench across the fireplace to wine and wine, and watch the fire. A romantic getaway anyone? We did spend quite a bit of time across the fireplace, enjoying multiple bottles of wine.
Lodge's restaurant the Prospect; is a Catskills favorite. Following the same design principles of the Lodge, the black contours become more apparent in the dining area. From floor to ceiling windows, mountains afar stand tall. Menu changes seasonally; highlighting local produce. Beware, reservations are recommended and the restaurant is closed on Monday's and Tuesday's for dinner.

Renowned town of Woodstock is only 40 minutes away. Other highlights around the area are Deer Mountain Inn and Phoenicia Diner.
