The inn is surrounded by terraces for casual relaxation and has docks for boating and waterfront recreation. This charmed 3/4 mile diameter lake is at the base of the Catskills and feeds trout streams down the valley down to the Delaware River.

The area is surrounded by wilderness and farmland and there are many activities nearby such as golf, hiking, swimming and boating, and even casinos.
