It is sister-in-law weekend coming up this Friday and I am looking forward to two of the four sisters Lil has coming down. Usually involved in visitor weekends is dinner at a place called the Inn at Stone Ridgeor the old Hasbrouck House. To have this treasure located just 2 miles down the road is a wonderful thing! My experiences there usually concern the fantastic restaurant and tavern, dishes done by executive chef Brian Murphy eaten in front of a huge fireplace make me deliriously happy. Frequently some famous screen faces often share the dining room.
The Inn’s lodgings have a total of nine bedrooms all with private baths and some with fireplace and sitting rooms. The eighteenth century manor house is just plain picture perfect and the grounds in summer stunning. With the Catskills, New Paltz, Woodstock and Hurley close, a day of exploring is magical. I would get on a plane to go to a place like this, only 95 miles from NYC.
