Nothing says welcome spring quite like a weekend away with some fresh air and great friends.
We’re fortunate to live in such a beautiful area with access to some of the region’s premier destinations for wine, craft beer and spirits. The Hudson Valley is known for it’s diverse food and wine culture, and The Inn is nestled right in the middle of the action.
Whether you’re spending a relaxing weekend snuggled up at The Inn or an exciting day of food and drink sampling across the valley, there’s plenty of ways to ring in spring in beautiful upstate New York.
We put together a list of our favorite spring destinations to adventure, have a drink, or a bite to eat with friends and family that are only a short drive from The Inn at Stony Creek.
