Three Reasons to Host Your Company's Corporate Retreat in the Catskills

As the Catskills become more popular, more and more city-based businesses are opting to head north of NYC for their corporate meetings and retreats. Just a scenic two hours from Manhattan and four from Boston, our little corner of the world is close enough to make it an easy trip but far enough to make you forget the cacophony and stress of city life.

Here are three top reasons why corporate groups are opting to head to the Catskills for their events:

An Adult Summer Camp Vibe Right Here in the Catskills

The Beaverkill Valley Inn offers all the fun stuff about summer camp (outdoor activities, s’mores, a pool, a 24/7 ice cream parlor) with none of the bad stuff (you get your own chic room, there’s good food and a fully stocked bar). 

A number of corporate groups opt to host their employee incentive trips at the Beaverkill Valley Inn because of our wide range of amenities and activities. From croquet matches to guided hiking tours, there are endless adventures to be had at the Inn. And when you’re ready for grownup stuff, we have free wireless internet, a large meeting space in the barn, a world class kitchen, and the aforementioned fully bar stocked with local craft beers and spirits.

Brewery Tours, Museum Visits, and Exploring the Local Area

Just because you’re in the rural mountains doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. Within 25 minutes of the Inn are the bustling towns of Livingston Manor and Roscoe, where you’ll find craft breweries and distilleries, unique shops, excellent dining, and cool museums. 

Many corporate groups opt to take part in our Sip of the Catskills Tour, where you get to tour our favorite local breweries and distilleries and experience a tasting at each one, then head back to the Inn for a beer on us. 

Don’t Forget About the Food 

The Inn’s executive chef Galen Sampson believes nothing brings people together more than good food. He sources many of our ingredients from the Inn’s own garden or from local farms and suppliers. Corporate groups usually ask for a welcome or farewell dinner, where Chef Galen creates a custom farm-to-table tasting menu with wine pairing. It’s a great way to bring your group together for camaraderie.

The Inn’s kitchen also provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each day of your stay. Blueberry pancakes are a breakfast favorite, and your team can enjoy lunch al fresco on the deck or ask for a to-go picnic lunch to take hiking.
