21st Century Technology Meets 19th Century Charm

The Inn At Ca’Mea is doing its part for its customers and the environment by taking steps into the green. Over the last few months we’ve been deep into finalizing a transition project to reduce our carbon footprint and move the Inn into renewable energy sourcing. The project incubated over the last three years. Max had installed solar panels on his home and was very pleased with them. “I’ve always had a big interest in Alternative energy and after seeing the savings and the huge amount of carbon reduction, And since we can officially say the Inn at Ca’Mea is now completed we saw no reason not to install the Panels.” – Max Cenci, Co-Owner of the Inn At Ca’Mea. Keeping with a philosophy of  having a small carbon footprint Max’s partner at Ca’Mea, Roy Felcetto, also now drives an electric car and offers a high speed charger to guest who drive electric cars. In addition to the solar system addition 90% of our lighting is now LED. With some of the highest efficiency heating and cooling systems rolled into the makeover, we are bringing this grand old house into the 21st Century while keeping intact it 19th century charm.

In New York’s picture-perfect Hudson Valley, the right balance of art, presidential history and food

Written by Debbie Bruno of the Washington Post It happened as we drove one evening across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge in New York’s Hudson Valley. As the sun slipped behind the jagged edge of the Catskill Mountains to the west, the clouds lit up, making a pink-and-golden canopy over our heads. The river sparkled beneath us. ¶ We were inside a Hudson River School painting. ¶ And, at the risk of waxing rhapsodic about the romantic landscapes created by 19th-century painters, we felt, for a moment, as if the great artists were looking down and smiling on us, their modern-day kindred spirits. ¶ After all, we were halfway between Olana, the stunning Persian-style home of Frederic Edwin Church, and Cedar Grove, Thomas Cole’s estate near the western banks of the river. We were in the heart of the countryside that inspired them and their contemporaries, leading to the first truly American school of art. ¶ Hudson Valley was to them the “center of the universe,” according to Church and the other landscape painters who lived there and celebrated its natural beauty. “All nature here is new to art,” Cole wrote in 1836. This is a great time to visit […]

A dozen cool and classic ways to best experience the northern catskills

Written by Malerie Yolen- Cohen for the Huffington Post The Great Northern Catskills of Greene County, the lesser-traveled portion of the Catskill Mountains, is being re-imagined as New York’s extreme adventure park a mere two hours from Manhattan. But, in reality, this has been America’s Playland for over 200 years. In the early 1800’s, artist Thomas Cole founded the Hudson River School of Art, rendering these mountainous, waterfall-packed landscapes on canvas; tempting America’s first tourists to revel in, rather than avoid, these natural wonders. Much of what Cole painted has not changed over the years, and vacationers still come for the sheer beauty of the place. But now, newer generations are discovering it for other reasons. Read on to get the most out of your trip to this swath of land from the Hudson River to the Northern-most Catskills, “America’s First Wilderness.”   Click here to read her blog!
