The leaves they are a changin’…

It’s that time of year again in the Catskills!  The beauty of fall never ceases to amaze me and I marvel at the beauty in my own front yard from where this pic was taken!  Coming soon to our town near you…the ever fiercely independent Woodstock Film festival 10.11-10.14.  Buy your tickets now!  Also that same weekend at the nearby Dutchess County Fair grounds you can visit the Rhinebeck Antique Fair.  The following weekend on the 19th & 20th don’t miss the ever popular Sheep & Wool Festival.

Autumn in the HudsonValley is the place to be.  Come to the Inn and check out the newest addition to our family…the Red House.  As tastefully done as the cottage it sits right on the stream and has 2 lovely decks for peace and quiet…all a 1 minute walk to town!

 

peace,

Karen

Home

I have lived in Woodstock now for about 17 years…15 of those have been at the Woodstock Inn on the Millstream, the place I call home.  I am reminded daily by my guests how lucky I am to live in such a gorgeous paradise and I am grateful for these reminders.

Year after year I have greeted a multitude of guests.  Some have become lifelong friends.  I have watched children grow up, graduate high school, enter college…no one has married yet that I know of.  What a joy it has been and continues to be!

I have witnessed guests fall in love, break apart, renew their vows, grieve the death of loved ones, spread the ashes of those loved ones here in the Millstream.  I have come to know that this place I call home is one that many refer to as their other home…the one they travel to for solace, peace and yes, love.  I am honored, blessed and forever changed.

 

peace,

Karen

Simply a great weekend to be in Woodstock…

More photos from Woodstock Inn guests…

Graffiti by Dorothea Orsini

Another one of my favorite Woodstock Inn guest photos…this one by Dorothea Orsini.  This graffiti art can be found across and up a bit from the Woodstock Inn’s swimming hole.  Something about this photo just called out to me.   Yes, to learn to love and be loved in return…really is the most important thing.

The town of Woodstock I believe really attempts to live that truth…neighbor to neighbor…I have witnessed far more love and kindness here…even stranger to stranger.  This community pulls together to help one another in time of need.  I feel extremely fortunate to have landed here 17 years ago and to tell you the truth I have not looked back!

Hometown homecoming…

I had the distinct pleasure of attending the East Coast premiere of Philip Dorling & Ron Nyswaner’s new film Why Stop Now?  It premiered in Philip’s hometown of Woodstock, NY.  I will just say this…Go see it!  Stellar performances by Melissa Leo, Tracy Morgan & Jesse Eisenberg along with an amazing script/direction by Dorling & Nyswaner make the film a must see for all.

The spirit of Woodstock…

Photo by Ruth Oscroft

This is just one of the many amazing photos we received for our 1st Annual Photo Contest…I loved this one…and so many others…so I will be featuring them now and again with my blog.

The spirit of Woodstock does live on…and on…and I’m not just talking about incense & long hair.  Here the sense of community thrives in a special way…you can witness in the streets, at the local bread shop..Bread Alone, at the dog park, the health food store, at Levon Helm’s barn…I feel very fortunate to have landed here 17 years ago..and to think I never planned on staying.

This month…the Woodstock Playhouse is back in business so make sure you get your tickets ahead of time…and your room here at the Inn!  www.woodstockplayhouse.org  Check out all the upcoming productions!
