My partner surprised me with a reservation at this hotel (surprise was March - our anniversary - and reservation was this week, June). We have lived in upstate NY for 20 years but were always drawn to the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. The Catskills were -- a place I drove our kids to camp and camping for. So this was a great surprise.
The Roxbury's website is promising. It doesn't promise too much, however - you will be surprised and pleased when you arrive to find that it's even cooler than you thought!
We had the Wizard of Oz suite. We're not crazy - weird that way, but I have to say this suite charmed my English-major premises. We only ran out of discoveries, after two days, as we were checking out ("the crow! it was attacking the scarecrow!")
This little gem is hard to describe, but easy to appreciate. One of the hosts suggested a hike up around a local golf course that was not only challenging (well, sort of) but also beautiful (wildflowers!)
Roxbury itself is a tiny place, but we found four different venues for great breakfasts and dinners.
The Roxbury hotel is, in sum, a very special place. We will be coming back to it. (We're Lake Placid/Stowe people, in case anyone is looking for a reference point.) It is a beautiful venue, with fine hosts and a welcoming community.
