coming to Phoenicia? check these out:

Phoenicia Belle B&B - a lovely bed & breakfast conveniently located across the street from the Mystery Spot!

Sweet Sue's - no, they don't have a website, but we know that's why you're headed up here. So here's their phone number: (845) 688-7852. We recommend the Blue Monkeys and the Hungarian Mushroom Soup!
