... to see how close all the other tall buildings are around it and to think that those really tall buildings fell right there. Kind of surreal. Our last stop was Central Park and even though we could only see a little bit it was fun to walk up 5th Ave.
All in all a long and tiring day but glad we did it. We didn't get a ride in a New York Cab but the subway was fun.
We got into Plattekill, NY on Tuesday and we took yesterday to get acclimated to the area. We also had to change sites at the park because the electricity at our original site wasn't working right. The new site isn't much better but we will take it because we can get satellite here. (We are so hooked on a DVR.) The park is old so the electrical is also old.

... a good look, because the sun was setting and I still had a bit of a drive to do before I reached my motel. So finally, finally, hungry and exhausted I arrived at the Catskill Motor Lodge, one of those side of the road motels from the 50's, only this one is very well maintained and incredibly clean and comfortable. So I left at 10am, and arrived at 7pm. A VERY LONG day. And I no sooner checked in then turned around to head out for dinner. I am kind of in the middle ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Red Hook Country Inn
I booked this inn based on the reviews on this site and was extremely disappointed...
Outstanding Inn and Restaurant
My sister and I recently stayed at The Red Hook Inn and the three days we spent in the capable care of Pat and Nabil couldn't have more wonderful. We ate dinner twice and the meals were well-thought out and very tasty indeed. Nabil is an instructor at The Culinary Istitute of America nad it shows. Pat went out of her way to make us feel at home and by the time we left we felt we had another sister. The inn is located just north of some very interesting sites and very close to the C.I.A. for culinary trips.
Red Hook Inn
The Red Hook Inn is a comfortable B and B, located very near to Bard College, and right in town, convenient to the college and to shopping. We stayed there for the first time while visiting our son. The rooms were newly decorated, very attractive, quiet, and extremely comfortable. Our hosts couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. The breakast was delicious and generously proportioned. We've arranged to stay there in the future, and recommend it highly.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple nights and couldn't be more pleased. Upon arriving before chek-in on a very cold day, Pat the owner offered tea and coffee while waiting for the staff to finish cleaning our room. The room was beautifully decorated, stayed a perfect temperature (big deal in an old house in winter) and the bedding was very comfortable. Throughout our weekend, Pat couldn't have been more friendly, helpful and attentive. Nabil, the chef, is just as friendly and all the food was outstanding. We're big fans of Middle Eastern food and this was tops--we ended up eating there both nights. Sunday brunch was decadent and delicious. They recently took over running the place, so had a few glitches to work out (such as the new housekeeper who was running behind because it was her first day.) But nothing that would deter us from going back if we return to the area.
Beautiful Inn and Innkeepers
My mom and I spent two wonderful days at the Red Hook Inn just before Thanksgiving and were treated like family from the start. The rooms were very comfortable, the service was personal and attentive and the food at the Roasted Garlic restaurant was truly delicious. What a wonderful holiday experience! Thank you, Pat!
WARM AND INVITING
Stayed 2 nites at RED HOOK INN, RED HOOK NY, to celebrate our 20TH Anniv. In Sept. Bed super comfy. Room cozy. Food at dinner really good. Innkeepers great- Friendly but not suffocating. Lots of privacy. Lots of stuff to do close by. Good local restaurants. We went hiking, sightseeing , shopping. Inn was clean with onsight restaurant and bar. Only improvement could be breakfast which needed a bit more variety. Had a wonderful time.
We spent some time at the Red Hook Inn during the first week of October, 2005. The Inn is ideally located at the center of charming Red Hook, NY which is convenient to many other points of interest in the Hudson Valley area. The new owners did make us feel like family, as other reviewers have noted. The highlight of our visit was the delightful Sunday brunch at the Roasted Garlic Restaurant, which was one of the best we've ever had. The sheer number of dishes offered was impressive--but more impressive was that each dish had its own sophisticated, yet home-cooked taste that you don't find very often. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and we will definitely return again on our next visit to the Hudson Valley.
I happened upon the Red Hook Inn, purely by accident, and what a treat. My friend, my daughter and I had travelled 7 hours and arrived at the Red Hook Inn, tired, hungary and road-weiry. When we arrived it was a little after 3:00 pm and told that was lunch was just ending. The waitress went and asked the chef (whom we did not know as a owner), told the waitress to seat us and we could have lunch. Before the water hit the table Nabil came out with freshly cooked falafals and handed each of us some. We had a wonderful lunch and retired to our rooms for a short time.
I stayed at The RED HOOK INN during a March visit to Bard College with my son and husband. Although we had planned to begin our return to Pennsylvania the same day ( a 7 hour drive), a snowstorm caused us to suddenly find accommodations. Bard College had recommended The Red Hook Inn and we arrived at 9PM, unannounced, cold and starving,and were greeted by Nabil and Trish, who immediately made us sit in front of the fireplace, gave us turkish coffee and hot soup!
