A Guide to the Catskills in Sullivan County
Fashion designer Mandy Coon shares her favorite spots for food, cocktails, coffee, vintage home goods, hiking and weekend stays in Sullivan County in the Catskills.
The Heron is the best spot up here to eat, in Narrowsburg. It’s a farm to table restaurant perched right on the Delaware River and the food and cocktails are amazing. The chef worked with Marcus Samuelson before moving up here.

Nest is a lovely, amazingly curated store. Anna, the owner, was an art director at Vogue, and she travels a lot and stocks the store with amazing finds, like one of a kind rugs from Morocco or home goods from Brazil.
She’s also just opened the Nest Inn which looks amazing!

The Arnold House is a lovely hotel and spa, located in Livingston Manor. The restaurant is great too!

The Outlier Inn is owned by two friends, Josh and Ambika and I highly recommend you stay there! Josh is a musician and has a recording studio on the property, and Ambika is a designer who has a fiber farm and she knits and crochets the most amazing things. They have several houses, cottages, etc. on the property (plus a huge geodesic dome!) and goats, sheep, chickens, ducks and angora bunnies….It really is magical. You can stay at two of the places on their property here and here. And here is Josh’s recording studio (there are often amazing bands staying at the Outlier for months at a time), and Ambika’s amazing ethical angora line and crocheted bikinis here: http://www.ambikaboutique.com/
Tubing on the Delaware! http://www.landersrivertrips.com/
Neversink Unique Area is a lovely place to hike and has many different trails you can follow to the river, and to several waterfalls.
Sam’s Point is an amazing hike. On a clear day, the views are absolutely stunning. It has ice caves and waterfalls.
Church of the Little Green Man — How to describe this magical place? A gallery/performance art church, I guess….
There’s now a bus that goes straight from Penn Station to Narrowsburg http://www.scva.net/eagleexpress/
