This Funky Little Town In New York Is A True Hidden Gem
If we were to ask you which town in New York is the funkiest, you would most likely end up mentioning places like
Woodstock or even Ithaca. If you take the time to travel into the Northern Catskills though, you’ll see that there’s one little village that’s a bit kookier from all the rest. Easy to find and a destination that you’ll know you’ve reached as soon as you arrive, see why we’ve got such a sweet spot for the funky little town of Tannersville.
Earning the nickname of being New York's Painted Village in the Sky, you'll find that a good majority of the buildings in Tannersville are painted quite vibrantly.
The colorful village is secluded away within Greene County, putting you just minutes away from scenic byways and one of our state's tallest waterfalls.
Main Street in Tannersville is made up of exciting restaurants and shops like Last Chance Antiques & Cheese Cafe that's decorated in yellow accents and pictures of cheese on the building's window shutters.
The cheese-themed shop and eatery is one that'll instantly make your stomach rumble, with plenty of amazing things to eat and great gifts to buy and take home with you.
With funky restaurants everywhere you turn, if you're looking to find which place is the best burger joint in town - that would be Mama's Boy Burgers.
Another colorful building from the outside to the in, Mama's Boy Burgers is open all year long and has some of the best burgers that you'll ever enjoy in New York and gives you a taste of old-school charm.
Towards the other end of Main Street, you'll find one of the coziest spots in town - the Catskill Mountain Country Store and Restaurant.
The type of store you wish you could find more of nowadays, this country store and restaurant has everything from amazing dishes to delicious jams and jellies for sale in the shop.
If you've already explored Kaaterskill Falls down the road, making a stop at the Mountain Top Arboretum sounds like the perfect thing to do while you're here in Tannersville.
A public garden within the Catskill Mountains, the arboretum covers over 180-acres and makes for an absolutely magical place to explore.
If you're looking to see as much of Tannersville as you can, then spending the night at the Deer Mountain Inn might be what's right for you!
The gorgeous inn has everything you could desire, from a unique restaurant inside to nature trails that lead you to jaw-dropping overlooks with views of the Catskill Mountains.
