Fodor's Expert Review North Branch Inn

869 N. Branch Rd., New York, 12766, USA

One of the newest properties in the Catskills, the North Branch Inn—a labor of love for the husband-and-wife team of Sims Foster and Kirsten Harlow Foster—is tucked away in a tiny town of the same name, and has lots of fun finds, like a screening room with a row of seats from Radio City Music Hall and an elegantly curved bar from the 1939 World's Fair. The best just might be the two-lane bowling alley, uncovered when this 1868 clapboard structure was renovated in 2015. In addition to a wood-paneled restaurant serving foods sourced from around New York State, there are five cozy guest rooms in the main building, where you'll find original woodwork and wide-plank floors. Across the street is a second building with four spacious suites where you can read in your own sitting area or soak in a claw-foot tub.
