two hours from Manhattan, but a world away


Rediscover the Catskills. Rediscover yourself.

In a Catskill mountain valley where eagles soar, on the river where fly-fishing began, the Beaverkill Valley Inn’s celebrated chef, Galen Sampson, partners with local farmers to bring you delicious ingredient-driven, locally-sourced meals.  Set on 60 acres within the Catskill Park, our comfortable 19-room Inn rests close by the upper Beaverkill, which flows down from headwaters peaks almost 4000’ high through forever wild forests and conserved meadows. Here we invite you to enjoy one mile of private fly-fishing, 40 miles of our trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, two tennis courts, an indoor pool and ice cream parlor, and more.

This is a beautiful old inn in one of the prettiest valleys in the Catskills. It’s only two hours by car from New York City but you feel like you are away from it all.

The Birthplace of American Dry Fly Fishing

The Beaverkill Valley Inn is situated on the banks of the Beaverkill, a legendary stream that is considered the birthplace of American dry fly-fishing. Upstream, many tributaries flow into it, as its waters descend from high peaks, through forests protected as forever wild. More than 100 tributaries flow into the Beaverkill along its 45-mile journey to the Delaware River.

American fly-fishing pioneers like Theodore Gordon and John Burroughs felt at home in the Beaverkill, which remains a source of legend and wonder. In 1979 Joan and Lee Wulff opened the Wulff School of Fly-Fishing, which is still active today, on the banks of the Beaverkill just upstream of the Beaverkill Valley Inn.
