Explore

Deer Mountain Inn is surrounded by 170+ acres of hilly woodland, featuring private trails that connect to neighboring state lands. Featuring one-of-a-kind Catskill mountain views, the trails system allows guests to tailor their days’ activities with options that allow for pleasant walks to rigorous hikes, from just a few hours to a whole days’ worth of outdoor adventure. Hike up to nearby Colgate Lake and take a dip in one of our swimming ponds or hop in the car and take the kids tubing in nearby Phoenicia while you reel in a few trout; then join us for a movie on the lawn and a late night bonfire. Our grounds are also prime for mountain biking, trail running, bird watching, and meditating.
