There is so much to do and explore in the hotels and so many activities that you can do outside of the hotel as well. I would call the Sullivan Catskills the hidden gem in New York that you never knew you needed... until now! You could choose the hotel of your choice, but you honestly can not go wrong with either the Kartrite Resort or the Villa Roma, because they have everything you need to have a family vacation in a place that feels like a home away from home.

The school year is right around the corner so give your family a trip to look forward to for this upcoming Fall or Winter Break at the Sullivan Catskills in New York!

had the fantastic opportunity to road trip to Sullivan Catskills in New York and met with 14 Macaroni KID publishers from around the country. The experience was such an adventure.

I quickly learned that Bethel Woods was, in fact, the home to the original Woodstock Music and Arts Fair in 1969. Did anyone else think that the festival was actually held in Woodstock, NY?
For those of us who didn't live during the Woodstock era, take a moment to think of what was going on in the world leading up to Woodstock in the 1960s: Kennedy was elected and assassinated, the Cuban missile crisis, the Beatles/British invasion of music, the Vietnam War escalated and the draft quotas doubled, race riots broke out, the summer 1967 summer of love...

I have loved visiting the Catskills for almost two decades. An easy – and beautiful – drive from NYC, I rarely feel at ease the way I do when I’m surrounded by so much natural beauty and the calm pace of life there. Before kids, my husband and I would rent a car and head to the Catskills for a cozy weekend getaway every year.
