The funky, hip vibe surrounding you here is not only FUN but will instantly reconnect you with your sense of wonder.
There is no better place to unwind, relax, and refresh than in a Roxbury room that feels like you stepped into a dream. Created and designed by Greg and Joe, expats from Broadway, each room theme is inspired by films and TV shows from the 60s and 70s and brings with it a magical and whimsical experience to our stay in The Catskills. First registrations get first pick of their unique room! The Roxbury will even have their outdoor extra super-heated pool open for your enjoyment along with a hot tub and sauna, and for our walking pleasure, an easy, walkable trail system that leads to their beautiful 50-foot waterfall.

After lunch we’ll board the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad at the Milford Depot for our scenic and entertaining ride into history and beautiful, mountain landscapes.
