STAMFORD

Stamford has been a destination town in the Catskills since the 1870s. Visitors rode the passenger train north to escape the city heat and spend the summer in the cool Delaware County air. Since then, it is still a destination, accessible and desirable year-round, with a beautiful and growing arts community. Enjoy live music and performance as well as outdoor adventures such as a trip to Mount Utsayantha to climb the fire tower, or bike riding on the Catskill Scenic Trail. Whether interested in music, the outdoors, dining out, or spending the afternoon browsing the shops, Stamford has something for everyone.

Stamford offers an array of lodging. Find your way to a traditional style B&B with breakfast included, a modernized motel, or cabins and farm houses.
