For fine dining, this place is highly recommended. And its BYOB so bring a nice bottle or two with you. Recommend the Chef's Tasting Menu.... your server will ask you some general questions about what you like and don't like, and they will surprise you with 7 courses custom prepared and unique each night. Dine with views of nearby Seneca lake. Outdoor seating lakeside in the warm months.

Ask Bob about hiking on the NJ/NY Highlands Trail - trailhead is a short walk from the house and the terrain is lovely - rock outcropping, mixed hardwoods, and over 6000 acres of solitude virtually right across the street.

Close by and interesting loop trail takes you to one of the last preserved incline planes used by the Morris Canal. The Morris Canal transversed NJ from the ocean to the Delaware River and carried mainly iron during the iron mining days. To this day, there is no other canal ever built in the world that has such a large elevation gain/loss during its course. The trail also takes you to the Ledge Mine which is a great example of what iron mines looked like in the bygone era.
