Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, The Beaverkill Valley Inn is a lovingly restored natural retreat, steps away from the fabled Beaverkill River, the cradle of American dry fly-fishing.

A comfortable country inn with rustically elegant common rooms, an exquisite wrap-around river-facing porch, and 19 personally-appointed rooms, the Inn offers a peaceful retreat in an abundant natural setting. Your stay includes access to the private Beaverkill Mountain Clubhouse on the inn property as well as use of the club’s outdoor tennis courts and miles of hiking and cross-country skiing trails.

Set on 60 acres within the Catskill Park, the inn rests close by the upper Beaverkill, which flows down from headwaters peaks almost 4000 feet high through forever wild forests and conserved meadows. Here you are invited to enjoy one mile of private fly-fishing, 40 miles of trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, two tennis courts, an indoor pool and ice cream parlor, and more.

The inn is a destination for sport and family fun, corporate retreats, and special celebrations. Come to the Beaverkill Valley Inn and experience adventure-filled days and unforgettable evenings. The inn is a peaceful, rejuvenating retreat offering seasonal adventures and the endless solace of the natural world.

The 19 rooms feature queen or extra-long twin beds. The Beaverkill Mountain Clubhouse and indoor and outdoor fitness facilities are on the inn property. As a guest of the inn, you have full access to all facilities.

Indoor recreation facilities

Just steps from the Inn, you’ll find the Clubhouse, a recreation facility which houses a sky-lit 60-foot pool, a basketball court and gym with free weights, a stationary bicycle, and treadmill. The Clubhouse also has a children’s playroom and a billiards room with foosball, Ping-Pong, and pool tables. Right next to the pool, you’ll find a help-yourself ice cream parlor (for after your workout).

Outdoor facilities

The Beaverkill River is one of the most famous rivers in fly-fishing history. As a guest of the inn, you have full access to a private mile of the fabled blue-ribbon trout stream, the cradle of American dry fly-fishing.

The inn has two outdoor Omni-court surface tennis courts, which can be reserved through the front desk. There is also a terrific pro at the inn, if you’re interested in a lesson.

Guests at the inn also have access to 40 miles of private trails maintained by the Beaverkill Mountain Club. During all seasons, you can explore for hours in the pristine, peaceful Catskill forests.

During the retreat, you will enjoy morning meditation sessions and daily morning and evening hour-long yoga classes.

Yoga

Yoga is a harmonious combination of physical and spiritual practices, connecting you deeper within yourself, others, and the universe with an overall sense of well-being. Yoga helps you experience moving your body, generating heat, and flow (prana), learn how to use your breath, balance, and coordinate the body through poses, grow with each practice, develop strength, stamina, and flexibility, challenge yourself to expand deeper in the poses, limiting obstructive thoughts, and connect with yourself, your teacher, fellow students, and the community.

The dining room serves as the restaurant for the inn. The chefs work to prepare three delicious and creative, locally-sourced meals per day during your retreat.

Breakfasts are typically buffets, featuring local free-range eggs and an assortment of cereal, fruit, yogurt, and house-made pastries, waffles, and pancakes. Lunches are also often served buffet-style, with salad, sandwich, and soup selections and hot entrees.

At all meals, vegetarian options are always available. Also, the chef is very sensitive and responsive to special dietary needs and restrictions. On Saturdays, the kitchen prepares tea with cinnamon toast, scones, and cookies for your afternoon enjoyment.

The delicious menu is co-developed by Janel and Chef Galen. When a young man, Chef Galen decided to follow his true passions: food and cooking. He fell in love with the business and has been working in fine hotels and award-winning restaurants for over 25 years, apprenticing under a number of highly accomplished chefs and hotel professionals.

You can choose from a wide range of optional activities including hiking, biking, kayaking or canoeing, tennis, swimming in the indoor swimming pool, bird watching (bald eagles), night sky watching (see stars and catch fireflies), movie night, and enjoying the self-serve ice cream parlor.

You can enjoy a 90-minute Thai bodywork or 30-minute chair therapy session with Janel for an extra fee.
