Phoenicia is a mountain village with 2800’ summits like Mount Tremper above the main street. The Catskill high peaks, including the ski mountains Bellearye Mountain and Hunter Mountain, are a short drive away. Phoenicia Village Motel & Cottages is perfectly located for hiking, fly fishing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, downhill skiing, nordic skiing, dining and shopping. The trailheads to the high peaks in the Catskills are within five to 25 minutes. Hunter Mountain and Belleayre Mountain are 25 minutes away. The motel is walking distance to Esopus Creek, which is regarded as a world class trout stream in the Catskill Mountains. I stayed for two nights between Christmas and New Years and enjoyed the innkeepers’ hospitality, comfortable room, and complimentary coffee and muffins in the morning. I hiked the Becker Hollow trail to the summit of Hunter Mountain, and attempted to climb Slide Mountain the next day, but heavy snow shortened my trip. The village of Phoenicia is a half mile away from the motel and cottages. You'll find gas, good restaurants, general stores and variety stores in town. The lodging is simple, very clean, and easily accessible, in the great tradition of the roadside motels of the Northeast mountains. There are excellent views of the mountains from your doorway. I haven’t found a better located, more friendly and economical place to stay for adventures in the Catskills.
