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!

Happy Holidays Skiiers and Boarders,

We are open and ready for the season. We have reservations and some vacancy. Stay at Breezy Hill Inn and you be eligible for vouchers for discount lift tickets at Belleayre Mountain where they are blowing snow! I was up at the mountain yesterday. There were three trails open and my friends Joe and Tom said the skiing was great.

So call us for a reservation, pack up your gear and head up to the slopes!>

Hope to see you soon,

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.
