Scenes from the weekend.

Brian and I had the most amazing time upstate this past weekend. We stayed at The Graham and Co. in Phoenicia, a popular retreat for New Yorkers with hipster details, minimal design, and no cell phone service. I absolutely loved it. Another perk of the hotel was that The Phoenicia Diner was only a three minute drive away. We ended up having breakfast there on both Saturday and Sunday and were really pleased with our meals. Mike, the owner of the diner, was there on Sunday morning and was so kind! I would return to Phoenicia just to eat another skillet breakfast there (with a side of biscuits of course). We wanted to try Sweet Sue's as well for their legendary pancakes, but it was closed for the weekend.

On Saturday we hiked to Kaaterskill Falls after our morning bike ride around Phoenicia. Late that afternoon I enjoyed a much needed nap while Brian exploded the area more on bike. That evening we had a phenomenal meal at Peekamoose; my gnudi appetizer was so delicious! On Sunday we went on another bike ride before venturing to the nearby towns of Woodstock and Saugerties. We explored the Saugerties Lighthouse and picked up some treats at Krause's Chocolates before making the trip back to New York City. We are now dreaming of one day owning a country home upstate. I will share more about The Graham and Co. this week, along with a little video of our weekend adventures.

  1. Oh, this gets me even more excited than I was. Hubby and I are headed to NH this weekend - with similar agenda....fresh air and rest! Also, the construction company I worked for built a Big Lots store in Saugerties a few years ago! It was fun to see the name of the town - that I've typed so many times - pop up in someone's story!

    1. Hey Adrienne! We had such a fantastic time. I wish we were still there! It was really nice to relax and enjoy nature together. It was a much needed trip after a brutal winter in the city. I hope you guys have a wonderful time in NH this weekend! We used to spend summers in ME and NH; I miss it there! Enjoy!

    1. Thanks Melissa! And thanks again for your recommendations! Sweet Sue's was closed for the weekend, so we ended up going to the diner both mornings. We absolutely loved it up there! I would love to return to The Graham and Co. in the warmer weather to enjoy the pool!
