Upstate Haven

Local Hikes
The hero of of the region. An absolutely stunning view awaits you at the top cliff. The short hike gets you to the top in under 20 minutes. However I recommend you take the more scenic route around the crystal clear lake which takes a bit over an hour before reaching that high point. Parking is $10, and is a 5 minute drive from the house.

A historical icon only a 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk away from the house. The Stone Church sits at the very edge of the mountain and provides stunning views of the valley below. Low effort high reward.

A cafe with the lot, and the only local place I've found so far with an espresso machine! Opens super early as well (6:30am I believe).

The local pub where everyone knows your name. Reliable food and drinks. It's the closest establishment to the house, and takes about 5 minutes to get there by car. Hours are inconsistent so it's best to check hours before you get there.

Great cafe with delicious sandwiches and a bit more low key than the DeBruce. The adjoining deli is worth exploring for a few extra supplies to take with you. 50 minute drive away from the house.
