Fodor's Expert Review The Arnold House
839 Shandelee Rd., Livingston Manor, New York, 12758, USA
With a history that dates back more than a century, The Arnold House helped make this part of the Catskills a must-go destination for hip city dwellers looking for a weekend in the country. The 10 guest rooms blend old and new seamlessly, with antique writing desks and quilts that preserve the country aesthetic alongside industrial touches like metal chairs and swing-out reading lamps. There's also a two-bedroom lake house that makes this property perfect for family reunions and weekend escapes. A spiral staircase takes you down to a rustic tavern, where locally caught trout (lightly breaded and pan-fried) is among the favorites. In warm weather you can sit on the deck and count the stars. On summer weekends there's often live music in the barn out back. For relaxation, you can book a treatment at the spa or just wander down to the pretty little pond.
