Roxbury, a charming village tucked deep into the Catskills, offers a wealth of activities for both nature and culture lovers. Birthplace of literary naturalist John Burroughs, the tiny hamlet is surrounded by hiking and biking trails, ski runs, flyfishing, and good old fashioned river tubing. The Catskill Scenic Trail system is a great place for strolling among the wildflowers or indulging one’s inner leafpeeper with a picnic of local cheeses, cured meats, pastries and jams from the Patakan Round Barn Farmer’s Market. History buffs will appreciate the town’s placement on the National Historic Registry and catch a Nines game, played with the dress and rules of baseball’s beginnings. Pop culture junkies and discerning travelers alike will want to lay their heads in Jeannie’s Bottle, Fred’s Lair, George’s Spacepad or one of the many other '70s and '80s sitcom-themed suites at The Roxbury, whose quality and attention to detail earned a spot on National Geographic Traveler’s annual "best of" Stay List.
