Girls' Getaway

One of the (many) perks of loving the people you teach with is that you have all of the same days off, meaning you always have someone to relax and hang out with! Several of us girls took advantage of the Jewish holiday last week with a three-day getaway upstate. We were lucky enough to stay at my friend Liz's country house in Saugerties, NY. We arrived Sunday evening at sunset and had a delicious meal at Miss Lucy's Kitchen, a farm to table restaurant in the heart of Saugerties. I especially loved the house made pappardelle with local sausage, fennel, leeks, cherry tomatoes, and wilted greens. Everything we ordered was amazing!

We woke up Monday morning to chilly weather. We bundled up in our fleeces and sweaters and treated ourselves to brunch at Phoenicia Diner. The grits were just as yummy as I remembered! After brunch we picked up local ingredients in Woodstock to bake a peach blueberry pie. That evening we ordered pizza from Slices and watched episodes of Sex and the City after dining in at home. Allidah worked her magic in the kitchen and baked an amazing pie that we had for breakfast on our final morning. The weather warmed up on Tuesday and we cherished every minute of the sunshine poolside. It felt so nice to escape the hustle and bustle of New York City and relax upstate.

If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay in Saugerties, check out Liz's rental on airbnb. The home accommodates twelve and offers a variety of amenities. We loved relaxing by the koi pond and pool, both located on the property. The kitchen and great rooms are also perfect for entertaining and hanging out with friends!

  1. SO fun! It looks like you ladies had a blast! That house is amazing and I'm jealous of your meal at Phoenicia Diner. I need to make a repeat visit there as well.
