    Glenmere

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Who doesn’t love a story of restoration, resurrection and rebirth?   We’ve found another couple (perhaps even more fabulous) who caught the bucolic plague.  Their feverish pursuit has turned into a gilded dream. Glenmere was built in 1911 for Robert Goelet, heir to an immense real estate fortune amassed over many generations.  As a prominent member […]

    The Chatter for March

    BY:Josh and Brent

      We’ve lobbied really hard for Garrison Keillor to give up life in Lake Wobegone and move to Sharon Springs,  but thus far he has not answered our letters or returned our calls. Sharon Springs has beautiful people and above-average children, too, so on to Plan B. What is a small town village without a […]

    A Main Attraction

    BY:Josh and Brent

    When a new business opens up on Main Street, it’s a cause for celebration.  Last fall Main Street made room for the Spring House Spa, and now we are welcoming 204 Main Street, a new bistro and wine bar devoted to seasonal, locally sourced foods (the fact that it is right next door to the […]

    Tale of Two Cities

    BY:Josh and Brent

    When we were invited to The Greenbrier to do a cooking demo from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook, we had to accept.  It was reconnecting two parts of history. We’ve told the story before about Sharon Springs’ rise as a world-renowned spa destination in the 19th century, and it’s fall from society’s graces during the […]

    Something Old & Something New

    BY:Josh and Brent

    The Beekman 1802 Annex is now open for business!   Josh’s grandfather (pictured above) used to own a small grocery in nearby Coxsackie, NY, so an eye for the essential (and the elaborate) runs in the family. In 1802, William Beekman, one of upstate New York’s most successful merchants, built the residence and farm we […]
