THE retreat

Just picture yourself at breakfast enjoying a cup of local coffee or tea, handmade granola and products from our neighborhood creamery.

Spend time perusing the Mercantile located right downstairs then a beautifully crafted picnic for lunch on Wawaka Lake after a serene kayaking adventure.

Finish your evening under the stars, roasting marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit.

If that's not Catskills living, we don't know what is...






The Catskills offer many wonderful things, and we are so happy to be able to share a place for you to enjoy them. The Mercantile is happy to have a basket waiting for you upon arrival.  We have a few different varieties depending on your tastes.

The red door to the right of the Mercantile doors will lead you up to our loft apartment. The entry area has the original floors and walls from when the building was built in the 1920's as a garage/dance hall for the hotel next door. Once up the stairs, you enter into a beautiful open space that consists of the kitchen, dining and seating area with a beautiful three-sided gas stove nestled in the middle. Lots of windows flood the area with natural light all day.  Look around upstairs for some of the original Art Deco details from the dance hall days.

The loft has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and a beautiful open living area. The kitchen is a mix of vintage and new and it is a great place to cook large meals with friends or family. The dining area seats 6-10 people and is adjacent to the kitchen and a relaxing sitting area where you can listen to records or read a book by the stove. A secluded nook offers a tv and dvd player for another type of escape. 

The bathroom has a restored claw foot tub to relax in after a long day enjoying the Catskills. 

Bedrooms: The largest bedroom provides a queen bed as well as a daybed that can serve as a twin bed. The other two bedrooms offers a queen bed in one room and a double bed in the other.

At the back of the apartment there is another area where you can steal some quiet time for drawing, writing or yoga. There is also a beautiful deck with views of Lake Wawaka, a gas grill and access to the mandatory Catskills fire pit. Don’t worry, the Mercantile has all you need for a night of s'mores-filled fun.
