Food scene

We can get obsessed with the Heron - it’s delicious American food (Brooklyn vibe), the staff is lovely and the food is so on point. They’ve been only doing carryout, but check their insta, @theheronny, for updates.

The wood-oven pizza is drool-worthy and they have good sides and mains as well. It’s your best bet if you’re craving vegetable dishes. As of us typing this, they are open for outdoor seating and you can also do carryout. Check out their insta, @thelaundrette, for updates.

Lovely coffee, raw honey products, nosh and people. Most days they sell exquisite bouquets in the shop or other random local fares. In Pete’s Plaza. We love this shop.

Open 7 days/week. Serves coffee, breakfast and lunch with a nice view overlooking the river. They also sell city-esque chocolate, candy and other this and that. It gets crowded - we often take our coffee and drinks to go and walk up the street to the overlook to enjoy the fare. You might see an eagle while sipping your latte

Narrowsburg is an up and coming upstate town that's about 15 minutes away (in the opposite direction of Callicoon). Over the past 5 years, a lot of new shops and restaurants have set up shop there that cater to New York style and taste. Note: you might have cell reception in Narrowsburg. Note: Narrowsburg has two gas stations. Note: you can charge electric vehicles at the Narrowsburg Union. Park in one of the charging spaces and, if the outdoor pay stations aren’t working, go inside to the shipping store - they will get you set up. Charging speeds are decently fast.

On your way to the cottage, you will drive through Bethel which is the site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. There are lovely cafes, restaurants there and you can still see concerts at the original site. After you drive through the main strip, look to your right - you'll see the Yasgur Farm barn up on a hill.
