Introducing Beth's Cottage at VanWinkle Inn!

We are pleased to introduce Beth's Cottage at VanWinkle Inn. Beth's cottage is named in honor of Beth Bryant whose family operated the original Bryant's Store at the current store site on the grounds of VanWinkle Inn. The Bryant family offered so many of us in the greater Greenville area opportunities that we may not have realized had it not been for their entrepeneureship and dedication to community and family.

The Bryant family gave Bert his first business opportunity in an environment that fostered hard work, honesty and integrity, and an emphasis on education for all of us that were students. Their daughter Beth was a dear friend, classmate, and co-worker.

The structure is a beautifully restored circa 1920's cottage that we believe was constructed by the Palmer family, prior owners of the property. The restoration includes the addition of a large master bedroom with a 15' high cathedral ceiling. The master has a full cedar closet and opens to a large front porch that spans the entire front of the cottage! The room includes both a queen size bed and a single day bed.

Locally hewn hemlock beams have been thoughtfully added and exposed to the supporting structure throughout the cottage, giving a touch of Adirondack charm to a truly English Country motif. A cozy fireplace is situated between the dining and sitting areas.

A central sitting area and dining space looks out onto the rear of the gardens of the property. The sofa in the sitting area opens to a full size bed for extra guests. A full modern kitchen includes all appliances (stove, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator). A full bath is expanded to include a dressing area and washing machine and dryer for your group's convenience! Another bedroom in the rear completes the cottage.

It boasts a full size bed that recesses into the wall, has double windows, and a full dresser. The entire setting is truly unique and beckons back to the heyday of the northern Catskill vacation area.

The cottage can comfortably accomodate up to 6 individuals. It is highly recommended for guests seeking longer stay accomodations when in town for business or pleasure. Skiers will appreciate the short 25 minute trip to Windham mountain without having to deal with the crowds and traffic of that area. Visiting artists will enjoy the seclusion of the garden setting and tranquility of the open interior space.

Finding the cottage upon arrival!  The cottage is nestled in the rear of the grounds.  If you pass by the front of the Inn (traveling west) you will pass by the store and then the barns.  Immediately at the side of the barns is a driveway for the church. Turn right into the driveway.  The barn will now be on your right side.  At the rear of the barn is a driveway on your right that belongs to the cottage.  Turn in and you have arrived!  The entrance to the cottage is the first door you will come to as you approach it.  Your key should be in the door. Welcome!
