Things to Do Locally

Dining - Nearby
A few places for dining near the farmhouse. Pickled Owl, Sweet Basil and Yiasou are dependable regulars when dining out locally. Piccolo Paese is a recent and enjoyable addition to our regulars roster. In Sullivan County, blue jeans are generally fine pretty much everywhere, unless you feel like going a bit less casual.
Upper end Italian cuisine in a nice atmosphere, just minutes away from the farmhouse in Liberty NY . No dress code. www.piccolopaeseny.com

Upward Brewing Company and Upward Kitchen just recently opened at 171 Main Street in Livingston Manor, NY.

The Neversink General Store is just that, offering a broad array of prepared foods, pizza, deli, groceries, local products, even gas and propane. Insider tip: the store carries the truly addictive cookies baked by Aunt Nenee, the local farmers and harvest market legend (yes, really - we had a niece ask for some as a Christmas present). The store is also a boat washing station for those interested in fishing the nearby Neversink Reservoir. Located at the corner of Shumway Road and Route 55 in Neversink NY. The trip from the farmhouse takes you across the reservoir dam, with scenic views. Stop at the scenic overlook before the dam to read about the towns submerged when the reservoir was built. www.neversinkgeneralstore.com

Now, we will be honest - we haven't yet visited any of the following local musical venues. But they are on our list, they look interesting, and we are familiar with some of the acts that perform there.
Cabernet Frank's is located in nearby Parksville NY. Their website makes it feel like you are having fun already! www.cabernetfranks.com Parksville is a small town that formerly straddled Route 17. New York State sent the town to seeming oblivion when it built the enormous Route 17 bypass around the downtown, but it has been enjoying something of a bohemian revival.

Music - Not Far Away
A few places to hear music not far away.
Bethel Woods is a major musical venue, drawing visitors from near and far. Located in Bethel, NY on the site of the 1969 Woodstock concert, Bethel Woods hosts a wide array of musical acts in its stadium sized Pavilion, with additional lawn seating, and its theater sized Event Gallery, located in the main building adjacent to the Woodstock Museum. In the fall, the harvest festivals, and craft beer and wine festivals, are also a popular draw. And the back road route to Bethel Woods from the farmhouse allows you to avoid all the traffic headed to the venue from Route 17. Highly recommended - we have been Bethel Woods members for many years. www.bethelwoodscenter.org

The Mountain Jam music festival moved to Bethel Woods in 2019, and will be returning in 2020. Mountain Jam is a separate organization from Bethel Woods; the Bethel Woods venue with its multiple stages and beautiful, spacious grounds is well suited for the festival. Most festival goers ("Jammers" in Mountain Jam parlance) camped on the Bethel Woods property, making traffic less of an issue for those staying locally or elsewhere. We really enjoyed the 2019 festival and are looking forward to the 2020 event. Highly recommended. www.mountainjam.com Note: Because of the way the Airbnb guidebook works, clicking on the photo will not take you to information about Mountain Jam.

The Giant Pumpkin Party, sponsored by the Daniel Pierce Library in Grahamsville NY, is a lot of fun but a little hard to describe. It is held at the same fairgrounds as the Grahamsville Little World's Fair, every year in the fall. It features a children's parade from the library to the fairgrounds first thing Saturday morning (which shuts down Route 55 for the duration - don't get caught in traffic). The parade includes theme floats, as well as vintage cars and tractors. The event features, as you might have guessed, a giant pumpkin contest - the winning pumpkin in 2019 weighed 1,018 pounds! - as well as live entertainment and craft vendors. It is a bit less commercial than the Little World's Fair. www.danielpiercelibrary.org Note: Because of the way the Airbnb guidebook works, clicking on the photo will not take you to information about the Giant Pumpkin Party.
