Fall can bring loads of apple flavored treats, colder weather, and plenty of fun to the Upstate new york area. You’ll want to make sure you have the whole family in tow when you book your trip this autumn to Villa Roma Resort. As there is a lot of autumn-related things to do in Callicoon NY, you’re going to want to enjoy a few days relaxing with those you love. Catch up on all that you can do in and around our resort this season, with three fantastic family activities the whole group will enjoy this fall season.  

Horsing Around

If you’re looking for something unique to do during your stay with us, we think a fall stroll on horseback is the perfect family activity to try before it snows. You’ll love being up close to the horses as you ride throughout the Catskill Mountains. Plus, it’s great for enjoying the autumn weather, and seeing the fall foliage! Bring your camera to capture some of the harvest seasons most spectacular colors as the leaves change from cool greens to warm oranges and browns.

Alpaca Adventures

We know that on a rainy day you’ll want to hang out poolside at our fantastic indoor pool, and what could top a day relaxing by some water? Alpacas. You can find these fluffy animals at a few locations throughout Sullivan County. We recommend a family day trip to the Buck Brook Alpacas farm! With interactive tours, this year-round facility is an excellent option for families and children. If you’re not sure you want to make the trip out to Buck Brook, head to the Rosehaven Alpaca Farm, which is a just down the road and short walk away from Villa Roma! Make sure to enjoy a visit this harvest season and learn about alpacas, agriculture in New York, and so much more!


Speaking of Agriculture, the agri-tourism in New York has been growing over the last few years. With the rise in farm-to-table restaurants and fantastic local farms, you’ll want to experience some of this first hand during autumn, even with the kids in tow! At Villa Roma, we offer many delicious menus with our on-site restaurants, but if you do want to get out on the town to eat, here are some great options to choose.

Are you a fan of the artisanal brews? Sullivan County is known for their Artisanal Beverage trail, which includes the Catskill Distilling Company, the Roscoe Beer Company, the Catskill Brewery, as well as the Callicoon Brewery. Whether it’s a farmers market, a pleasant restaurant, or a nice cold brew, there are plenty of things to do in Callicoon NY, that will keep you and the kiddos busy when it comes to learning all about farming.


No matter if you choose to enjoy some time checking out our enjoyable range of on-site amenities, cozying up in our fantastic accommodations, or spending a day visiting area attractions. The kids will have so much fun horseback riding, petting alpacas on a farm, and walking around the farmer’s markets; you’ll have everything here to keep your family moving with all the fantastic things to do in Callicoon NY. No need to worry about horsing around here at Villa Roma, book your harvest getaway with the family today, and start planning your incredible retreat to the Catskills!
