Stone Ridge, NY

For Valentine's Day, Burke and I took a trip to Stone Ridge, a historic little town in the mountains, about 90 minutes north of Manhattan. We stayed in a family-owned bed and breakfast, pictured below.
We decided to go to Stone Ridge partially because of how old the town is. Many of the houses were built in the 1700s, including this one, where George Washington spent the night.
The town was also full of neat old churches--one of which was for sale as a house! I wish we could buy it.
Stone Ridge is also known for its amazing restaurants, due to the town's proximity to New York State's Culinary Institute. Man, we had some delicious meals! We also saw a movie on Main Street, at the Rosendale Theatre. And we found some elevated railroad tracks that you can walk on, which offered a great view of the valley.

Thanks for a very romantic Valentine's Day trip, sweetheart!
