Town of Windham, NY
Often referred to as the "gem of the Catskills," Windham offers spectacular outdoor recreation opportunities, an abundance of lodging options, and incredible eateries.
Windham, the “gem of the Catskills,” is one of the oldest small towns in the region. Established in 1798, it has been charming visitors for over two centuries. Windham’s historic Main Street is lined with locally-owned specialty shops and exceptional restaurants, and a wide variety of lodging options makes it a great destination for a family vacation. It is also a top pick for skiers and mountain bikers looking to experience adventure.
Windham Mountain Resort is a true year-round destination. In the summer, golf 18 pristine holes on the Windham Country Club public golf course, or fly down the expertly engineered but naturally-inspired trails of the Windham Mountain Bike Park. When snow blankets the Catskills, enjoy 1,600 vertical feet of skiing on 54 trails and six terrain parks spanning two peaks. Any time of year, have a relaxing stay at The Winwood Inn & Condominiums, located a mile from the mountain, or at Albergo Allegria, located just over a mile from the mountain.
Home to some of the finest dining the Catskills have to offer, you can come to Windham hungry and leave happy. Indulge in delectable French cuisine at the Zagat-rated Bistro Brie and Bordeaux, eat local at the Windham Local Public House, which uses farm-sourced ingredients in their creative dishes, or enjoy a glass of wine and light bites at the Ze Windham Wine Bar. If you’re a breakfast person, head to the Catskill Mountain Country Store and Restaurant for an unforgettable meal.
With unlimited activities and charming places to explore, it’s no surprise that Windham is a popular location for adventure enthusiasts and relaxed travelers alike. From walking along The Windham Path and sipping wine at The Vineyard at Windham to browsing visual arts displays at the Windham Fine Arts Gallery and cycling in the Tour of the Catskills Pro-Am Bicycle Road Race, Windham is an ideal escape.
After a day of exploring, stay on one of Windham's unique lodging properties. From newly opened Wylder Windham with plenty of on-site adventure, to a Scandinavian inspired glamping experience at Eastwind, a tranquil stay at Union + Post, or lodging at Albergo Allegria--the “Inn of Happiness”, Windham has no shortage of unique and memorable stays.
