Burroughs Homestead


Sited at an elevation of 2,600 feet on Old Clump Mountain, Roxbury, New York, built in 1850 and comprising 292 acres, the completely restored Homestead is available for your vacation year round.   We invite you to walk, hike, or meander through the forests and meadows which inspired John Burroughs, or to sit on the porch and take in the unsurpassed view.  Extremely private, the Homestead is perfect for family gatherings, wedding guests, and exploring the natural beauty of the Catskill Mountains.  

"I am an old man now and am come to the summit of my years.  But in my heart is the joy of youth for I have learned that the essential things of life are near at hand and happiness is his who but opens his eyes to the beauty which lies before him." ~ John Burroughs
