I remember a time – a younger, more carefree time when hangovers cured themselves – that St. Patrick’s Day was full of beer, laughter, and a touch of debauchery. Unfortunately, those holiday celebrations are becoming further and fewer between as I get older. It’s very sad, but it’s true…and it’s okay because I’ve embraced it.
Now, I like to celebrate holidays in new and different ways – no less festive, but a little more creative. Which is why I was so happy to hear of a gorgeous hotel called The Caldwell House located just a train ride away from NYC in Salisbury Mills, New York. Even though I’ve lived in New York for almost a decade, the quaint little towns and B&Bs of upstate get me every time. And with a most-excellent rating on Trip Advisor, this destination is on the short list.
Once a refuge to an Irish family fleeing British persecution, The Caldwell House is marking St. Patrick’s Day with two fun weekends full of activities, and because they are fabulous, Pretty Delicious readers get 10 percent off their stay during the entire month of March when using the code IRISH10 when booking. (Call to reserve!)
On the weekends of March 14-16 and then March 22-23, The Caldwell House has a front row seat to a number of activities in the town, ranging from the annual parade on the 16th to live music every Thursday nights at the Irish pub down the street. Throughout the weekend, guests will be treated to gourmet Irish breakfasts, complete with Irish Soda Bread, Irish coffee, and other goodies. The house also has a deep history you can learn more about!
So if you’re like me – ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but maybe not in the over-the-top way of the past – visit The Caldwell House and let us know in the comments how you liked it!
