AirBnB: Table on Ten, Bloomville, New York

Bloomville's Table on Ten is a great home base for exploring the Catskill Mountains or Schoharie Valley. This beautifully preserved 1860's house is home to a café and an inn.

We love the attic whose wrap around windows, king-sized bed, exposed beams, will welcome you home. Just before our visit (booked through AirBnB), an architect stayed in the attic and left a detailed drawing for improving it with a private bath. Today you'll find a clawfoot tub central to the design. 

If you plan your trip over a long weekend, you can not only eat breakfast at the café but enjoy its renowned brick oven pizza. We're going to shoot for July 4 one year just to gorge on Table on Ten pies. Don't be shy about gathering tips about the area from the friendly staff. And use the Table on Ten website itself to do a little research about their purveyors - including local farms you might visit along the way.
