Ready for a REEL Adventure? Visit Ulster County.

As summer wears on, the idea of surrendering to yet another cookie cutter vacation filled with crowds, long lines, and utter exhaustion really doesn’t seem like…well…a vacation.  Thinking about this over my morning coffee brought back a flood of childhood memories – especially the lazy days spent on the lake fishing with my grandfather listening to the hypnotic hum of the cicadas.  It was at that moment that I decided I would be taking my family on a “reel” adventure this summer!
Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa offers catch and release
fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass, perch, pickerel,
and sun fish on their private lake.
If you’ve ever considered a fishing vacation, Ulster County, New York is an angler’s paradise.  Offering up some of the best fishing in the Northeast, the waterways of Ulster County deliver an abundant and diverse selection of fish including trout, largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, northern pike, pickerel, walleye, and yellow perch.
Now, if your family is anything like mine, you’ll want to unwind even more at the end of the fishing day with a delicious meal, a camp fire, and shall I even say it – a spa treatment.  This is obviously not the fishing vacation my grandfather would have had in mind, but for those looking to enjoy the natural and unspoiled beauty of the area’s lakes, streams, and rivers without the inconvenience of sleeping with a rock in their back, Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa is opportunely situated within close proximity of several of the region’s best stocked fishing spots.  You can also fish the resort’s private lake; offering a healthy population of smallmouth and largemouth bass, perch, pickerel, and sun fish.
When you’re not fishing, you’ll want to take advantage of the resort’s other recreational amenities, including hiking, golfing, tennis, basketball, pedal boats, swimming, and spa services as well as yoga, tai chi, and Zumba classes.
