Taking a trip to Tannersville? Here’s what to do:
Deer Mountain Inn
Designed by Nehapwa architect George Reid, this newly refurbished 1880s building sports stone fireplaces, wood paneling, and diamond pane windows. The 60-seat farm-to-table restaurant opened in October, and features a New American menu; the six-room inn was due to open as we went to press. County Rd. 25, 518-589-6268, www.deermountaininn.com
All Souls Church
This circa-1894 Gothic Revival stone chapel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Those who attend Sunday services can admire the building’s impressive stone and wood interior and stained glass windows. County Rd. 25.
Mountain Top Arboretum
Founded in 1977, this “living museum” highlights native and exotic trees and shrubs that have adapted to life 2,400 feet above sea level. In the West Meadow, see 375 million-year-old bedrock as well as dawn redwood trees — a species that has been in existence since the dinosaur age. County Rd. 23C, 518-589-3903, www.mtarboretum.org
Huckleberry Multi-Use Trail
Close to three miles long, this graded dirt path follows the bed of the old Huckleberry Railroad. Enter at Clum Hill Rd. 518-589-5850.
Main Street Historic District
Village businesses are housed in renovated buildings that are cheerfully painted in pastel colors. The brainchild of a local artist, the “Paint Project” has attracted tourists, been featured on the Today show, and helped Main Street land its historic district designation in 2008.
Looking for a quick breakfast or a snack after hiking? This eatery makes your donut to order: Watch while they fry it, then request your toppings. Coffee is roasted in-house, too. 5950 Main St., 518-589-6262.
