The Fall

Many visitors come here to admire the colors of the autumn landscape. This picture is of the Mongaup Valley just to the west of here. The southern bald eagle is now an overwintering year-round inhabitant of that area, especially the Mongaup River, Rio Reservoir, and Mongaup Falls Reservoir, and many more bald eagles winter in the area. As a result of bald eagles becoming more prevalent, eagle watching has become a tourist attraction within the Mongaup Valley.

Our Bed and Breakfast borders the southern end of the Catskill State Park, which is a classic area for spectacular fall foliage displays, hiking and observing wildlife. Just a short drive down Route 209 is Minnewaska State Park, which is also fantastic in the fall.
