Cranberry bread fresh from the oven!

It's the day after Xmas and it is snowing again....expecting another 2 inches of snow; we got 2 inches Xmas Eve! I just made Cranberry bread to serve with breakfast tomorrow. It's a good old fashion bread and will compliment the fresh fruit and omelets we will be serving. Belleayre is open and they have been blowing snow for the last two days....should be good skiing and boarding.

Wishing all Happy Holidays! Come visit us soon!

The day after Thanksgiving and Belleayre is open with a couple of inches of fresh snow. Nine trails are open from the top to the bottom of the mountain. It has been flurrying  on and off all day; the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day up here in the Catskills. Banana blueberry walnut muffins are in the oven and will be ready to serve for tomorrow's breakfast to our first skiers of the season! Come join us at Breezy Hill Inn.

This is an odd time of year at Breezy Hill Inn. The holiday season has not yet begun and the great activity of wedding season has died down. There are a few guests a the Inn this weekend but in general November is a shoulder month. This morning we were treated with a visual delight. The sun was shining and nestling in the valley was a cloud. The picture below doesn't do the sight justice. You can't see the twinkling of the sunshine on the cloud but the silhouette of the trees against the cloud is breathtaking. So here's tip, if you want to romp in the Catskills before the harsh weather and the skiing crowds come in, visit us in November.

Fresh Blanket of Snow!

The blizzard of February 8th brought us approximately 10 inches of fresh snow last night!

After a breakfast of yogurt with fresh strawberries and blueberries, baked french toast and cranberry banana muffins, our guests happily went off to the Belleayre Mountain.

The sun has just started to show itself and its perfect skiing, boarding, snowshoeing or cross country skiing weather. Twentry degrees and fresh powder. Who could ask for more.

Looking like President's week will be glorious. We're booked for the weekend buy have availability for the week and following weekend. Come join us, you are in for a treat!

Huge Snowfall in Catskills

It started snowing in the Catskills last evening around 5pm. I cleared the steps twice within two hours to no avail. At 2am it was snowing so hard, I couldn't see more than 15 feet outside the window. Thank goodness I was inside. This morning Belleayre Mountain reported 18 " of fresh snow. All the lifts are running; 33 trails are open!

Guests at the Breezy Hill Inn were so eager to get to the slopes early, they were cleaning their cars at 7am as the snow continued to fall. At our Catskills B & B today we served a breakfast of fresh pineapple and berries, croissants followed by a cheese and chives omelet with toast. Immediately thereafter, they were off to hit the slopes.

More snow is on the way! Come join us for a snowy New Years!

Summer Turns to Fall

It has been a long time since I have sat down to write this blog; I am not sure what has caused the hiatus but, frankly, I have missed writing and I am back again. This summer has been extremely busy at Breezy Hill Inn. We have hosted guests for several weddings and still have more coming up in the next few weeks. This past weekend, the parents of a groom who was married to his lovely bride on a farm in the Halcott Valley stayed at the Inn. The newly married couple were here as well and it was a joy to see so many happy people share in the couple's special day. 

Our part of the Catskills is drawing brides and grooms from all over the country. They are getting married in restored barns, in meadows, under tents in off the beaten track hallows and introducing their guests to the beauty of the Central Catskills. We have a barn here at Breezy Hill Inn and we are thinking about cleaning it out and turning it into an event space. If we do, I will chronicle the work and post updated photos for all to see.

Today the weather is perfect, temperatures are in the seventies, there is a gentle breeze and the color on
the trees indicates that fall is not far behind. This has been an extremely dry summer and I am hoping that the leaves will not turn to quickly. Fall is spectacular in the Catskills; the colors range from orange to red and every shade in between. As lovely as summer is, the crisp days and cool night of fall are refreshing and always invigorating.

Time to start thinking about hiking. Come visit us for Indian summer and enjoys the last weeks of the harvest.
