The Roxbury – Contemporary Catskills Lodging
DELHI, NY (04/22/2009; 1000)(readMedia)– When it comes to travel, most people have a destination in mind and then find the type of place in which they want to rest their heads. The Roxbury Motel flips that standard route on it’s head. Travelers find The Roxbury and decide they’d like to visit the Western Catskills. They are the destination in and of themselves. While they are set in the historic village of Roxbury at the headwaters of the East Branch of the Delaware River, surrounded by the authentic charm of gentle mountains and rustic farmland vistas, the bucolic beauty just sets the backdrop for the outstanding style and wonderful service provided at the inn.
The April 2009 issue of the National Geographic Traveler contained their article, The 2009 Stay List: 129 Hotels We Love. There along side some of the most expensive and exclusive hotels, resorts and inns, is The Roxbury. Just two months prior, TripAdvisor.com announced their 2009 Travelers Choice Awards – and again The Roxbury was in two categories: Best Hidden Gems, and Best Service – USA.
All these accolades come after five years in a row of the Catskill Mountain News Best Service Award for #1 Hotel/Motel in the Catskills Region! Co-owner Greg Henderson is enthusiastic about the audience outlets such as these offer to travelers from around the world. "Due to the amazing power of the Internet and the considerable amount of International Media attention that we have received, we have been amazed at the amount of American and International travelers that come to stay with us. Just this week we had guests from Norway, Russia, The Netherlands, and the U.K. At the same time, we also had a couple from High Falls, NY come to stay for a little romantic get away. They left vowing to tell all of their friends and family that they don’t need to travel far for a luxury adventure at an affordable price – they just have to drive to Roxbury in the Western Catskills!"
The Roxbury offers eighteen rooms in four styles – studios, studios with kitchenettes, themed rooms and suites. All rooms have Wireless Internet, Tv’s with DVD players and MP3 playback, fridges, microwaves, coffee machines, A/C, Egyptian cotton towels, luxury bathroom amenities, telephones with voicemail, and these wonderful curved shower rods that create more shower space in the bathtubs. Breakfast is served continentally at 8:00am sharp, and includes freshly-ground Hawaiian coffee, the chai tea, the freshly baked old-fashioned coffee cake, the Ghiradelli white chocolate hot cocoa, the yogurt and oatmeal, and the fresh fruit.
