Charlie and I like to get away to regroup. We have found a special place that suits us perfectly. I love nature and a peaceful setting. Charlie needs a quiet place to write music. The Ashokan Dreams Bed & Breakfast is the perfect remedy. Tucked away on a hillside over looking the Ashokan Reservoir in New York State, the B & B has only 3 guest rooms, all with private entrances. Ann Marie, our amazingly efficient and gracious hostess makes sure she absolutely understands our dietary preferances and accomodates them to perfection. Breakfast is brought to our room. I can get used to this!
The rooms are clean, clean, clean and cleverly decorated. The beds and seating are comfortable. There is wifi. No tvs. Not a problem. The views are spectacular. The wildlife and gardens are entertainment of a different kind. Quiet walks through woods and past farms gives a renewed sense of calm.
Ann Marie can arrange and host weddings and other social events on the spacious property. I imagine a wedding here would be a wonderful dream occassion.
The B & B is about 30 minutes from the town of Woodstock. Lots of shops in Woodstock plus places to explore in a natural setting. I enjoyed the Saturday Flea Market. And, of course, there is music everywhere. We had a delicious dinner at the Bear Cafe and also at the Country Inn in Krumville. The Country Inn boasts at least 500 choices of beer! Decisons, decisions!
