In The Spotlight: The Graham & Co., Catskills New York
Here's one way to cope with the end of summer: Start planning your first weekend fall getaway. The Graham & Co in the Catskills is an attractive contender, drawing groups and young couples with free beer upon check-in, hipster-friendly decor, fire pit, projector for movie nights, quiet lounge with outdoor seating and low music, free loaner bikes, and a convenient location a couple of blocks from Main Street in Phoenicia.
With no TVs, spotty cell service in the area, and a location surrounded by nature (but within walking distance of restaurants and shops), The Graham & Co. lets guests get away from it all. It is relaxing, clean and simple, with 20 rooms of varying sizes (some have kitchens) featuring Tivoli radios with iPod hookups, reclaimed wood furniture, and large comfy bean bags -- but little else.
