Nestled between the foothills of the lumbering Catskills and the tributaries flowing from the majestic Adirondack Mountains is Sharon Springs, a village where time seems to have slowed to a halt and people still come from far and wide to "take the waters".
Sharon Springs is rich in history, so enjoy a leisurely stroll through the village and gaze upon her glorious Victorian hotels and gilded mansions. Walk the Historic Main Street Tour and visit the Chestnut Street Schoolhouse and Sharon Springs Museum. Savor a tasty meal at My Sister's Place or the American Hotel, and take a moment to explore the many quaint shops where you'll find exquisite antiques, distinctive crafts, and Mcgillycuddy's Naturals milk soaps.
Along the way there are five different mineral springs to cure whatever ails you, and Schoharie and neighboring Otsego Counties are home to the Glimmerglass Opera, the Iroquois and Farmers’ Museums, Hyde Hall, the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, the Landis Arboretum, and Howe Caverns. Local festivals also include Sharon Springs Garlic & Artisan Fair, the Annual Psychic Fair, and the Antique Tractor and Power Show.
After a day of sightseeing, curl up by our fireplace and take a read. The region is truly magical -- you’ll probably find yourself most enjoying the The Leatherstocking Tales of favorite son, James Fenimore Cooper. We have plenty of copies, so come visit us!
