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.
