Friends and I escaped to upstate New York this weekend for fresh air and adventure. Coming highly recommended to us was the Graham & Co., a beautiful motel tucked away in the small town of Phoenicia. A spot where NYC minimalism meets the rustic outdoors, it made us feel in our element even though we were so far outside of it. Free bikes, an amazing breakfast array complete with eggs stamped with the Graham & Co. logo, minutes away from great hiking and just as great margaritas, an evening bonfire, and a notable local diner were just several of the weekend highlights. It was the perfect spot to get a mini break from city life.
