Just back from… Buttermilk Falls

by parenture on March 12, 2012

I’ll use pretty much any excuse to travel, so when my husband recently told me that he didn’t want anything for his birthday, I started thinking about trip ideas. He said he didn’t want any thing, but travel isn’t a thing; it’s an experience. And so began my search for a romantic getaway.

After my parents generously offered to watch our daughter, I started hunting for idyllic inns within two hours of the city. First on my list was Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa and–fortunately for us–it was available. I’ve been eyeing this place for a while, and especially since its new farm-to-table restaurant, Henry’s, opened last year. (As an aside, the restaurant is named after the owners’ son, who’s a frequent guest. And as romantic as our getaway was, Buttermilk is also super family friendly, making me excited to go back with our daughter one day.)

Let me tell you: Buttermilk did not disappoint. From our cozy room in the main house, to the small farm and picturesque pond, to the on-site spa to the delicious food, we had everything we wanted within a ten-minute walk. And with a new barn for events, the property really reminded me of where we got married. Even better, the surrounding area of Ulster County is full of things to do. I could have stayed for a week. Check back tomorrow for a few highlights and book your own trip soon… Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is coming up: March 18-31.
