THE STORY BEHIND THE
Solomon Caldwell is often credited as the founding father of Greenwood Lake. By purchasing large parcels of lakefront land and marketing these properties to tourism investors, Caldwell successfully launched “The Golden Age” of Greenwood Lake in the mid to late 1800s. Grand hotels like the Ferncliff and the Brandon House rose from the shores of the lake and some of NYCs most influential businessmen, politicians, and even entertainers made Greenwood Lake their retreat destination. It’s believed that many “meetings of the mind” occurred here. In fact, there’s record of NYC’s Tammany Hall leaders staying at the Brandon House and many political decisions stemmed from these outings.
The Caldwell Suite at the Watestone Inn is a favorite of business travelers and those seeking solitude to work remotely on business plans, websites and other ventures. The oversized captain’s desk that overlooks the lake is a perfect place to put ideas to pen (or keyboard). Dream big, take calculated risks and remember this oasis that Solomon Caldwell created just 48 miles from Manhattan.
“Thank you for being our base camp during our Appalachian Trail section hike adventure! Greenwood Lake is an awesome place to finish 30 years of section hiking the trail!“
