Saltsman's Hotel

Junction of Routes 67 & 10, Ephratah, NY - (518) 993-4412
If you'd like to sample one of the more esoteric regional specialties in the U.S., head to Saltsman's Hotel in late May or early June to try some milkweed. Saltsman's is said to be the oldest, continuously operating restaurant in the state. Late summer, elderberry pie is made from locally picked fruit.
