Check In: The Kaaterskill

Catskill, New York

On an 15-plus-hour family road trip, there’s usually only one requirement for on-the-way lodging: a pool. We decided to forgo our number-one priority on the way to Maine this year and try out The Kaaterskill–a big, red barn rescued by New York City painter Allen Hirsch and converted into a six-room lodge on a vast, green expanse of rolling meadow, farmland and pond in the picturesque shadow of the Catskill Mountains. Our two boys more than made up for the ten-hour car haul, running endlessly and exploring every inch of the property. They looked for frogs along the edges of the pond, watched the horses from the old wooden viewing platform and fed the goats. There were sheep and chickens and a grouchy potbellied pig named Apple–and the kids never asked about a pool once.
