White Sulfur Springs Artist retreat is 90 minutes northwest of New York City in the beautiful Catskill Mountain Region of Upstate New York. The retreat is within a 10-minute drive to the incredible Peekamoose hiking trails and waterfalls as well as the Neversink Reservoir swimming area. The retreat has a kitchen with porch, made completely with re-purposed windows and shipping crates, is an oasis in the woods, a wonderful place to sit by the firepit, stay warm and cook (if you so desire). There are also other places on the property where campers can escape and make their own fire.
Unlike more densely settled, gentrified areas outside the city, such as the Hudson River Valley or the Hamptons, this corner of Sullivan County feels lost in time, a cluster of tiny hamlets (like Roscoe, world famous for its fly fishing) that follow the twists and turns of the Delaware River.
On the western edge of Sullivan County is the town of Jeffersonville, a place where you can find antiques and all sorts of oddities that feel like treasures lost in time. The towns of Livingston Manor and Callicoon, each less than 20 miles from one another, are attracting artists and entrepreneurs who are transforming these sleepy towns.
During the winter the Catskill Mountains are transformed into a winter oasis where snow skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling take center stage.
