Have never partaken at Hunter but did zipline in Costa Rica and it was a blast so would imagine this is very much the same with fantastic vistas.

Food Options and Scene
Places near (within 5-10 mins) and far (within 30-60mins) where you might want to visit for food and or drink.
Great 'hip' restaurant "the Prospect" and nice bar. Prices seemed to have crept up steadily since they opened but overall, have consistently had good meals here. Service at the bar can be on the slower side. This was one of the earlier 'boutique' style hotel options in the area. Pricing is fairly high.

Good burgers (including non-meat options) that are worth a visit. They also happen to serve tater tots which tend to be our preferred side option. They also serve ice cream and have a killer Mac and Cheese. Prices are moderate (not cheap, not terribly expensive)

Call ahead to see if they have tables available and that they are not booked for a private event (a good number of weddings are held here). DMI has a gorgeous property, friendly staff and tends to be (at least pre-pandemic) off the radar of a lot of people despite being a place where a lot of magazines and influencers like to do photo shoots. They often have visiting Chefs and ever changing menu as a result. Food can also be really great or so so depending on who the chef is in any particular week. Prices are on the higher side but not outrageous. Crowd tends to be a mix of people ranging from normal nondescript to hipster to local country club type and that in a way makes it feel not too stuffy because of the random mix of people that show up at DMI.

Good food and drink options with some great beers of course. Menu does have vegetarian options. This place is a nice alternative to the more popular Phoenicia Diner if you're in this area.

Have eaten here numerous times and had great food here each time. *The cheesecake they sell (rarely) is probably the best I've had hands down.

City/town information
Nice and sometimes 'chic' (for the Catskills*) downtown with good restaurants and good shopping. This can be a weekend destination for a lot of city folk so be forewarned if that's not what you want to see/run into.
