The Catskills

The National Historic Site for Thomas Cole is located right in Catskill Village. The landscape painters of the nineteenth century received much of their inspiration from gorgeous sites such as Sunset Rock and Kaaterskill Falls.

The Catskills are only a few hours drive from New York City. This is a peaceful world filled with leafy and cool forests, winding rivers, towering mountain summits, deep lakes and vibrant downtowns. There are even sparkling swimming holes, secret waterfalls and serene retreats in the Catskills. In 1969, the world-famous Woodstock Music Festival took place in the Catskills. This lush area has become an important part of American culture. Numerous films have also been set in the Catskills. Works of art from the nineteenth century including paintings from the Hudson River School have been painted here.

New York City vacationers have come to the Catskills for an escape throughout the mid-twentieth century. A lot of young, unknown stand-up comedians have made a name for themselves ar one of the many large resorts in the area. This is where they honed their crafts. The Catskills have always drawn writers, musicians and artists. This is especially true of the towns Woodstock and Phonecia. The reason the Haven Resort & Spa is such an incredible escape is as much due to the Catskills as the spa itself.

Do not wish for temporary or transient success but for true fulfillment and happiness in your life. This is what retreats in the Catskills are for.
