Justus Kempthorne and Inez Valk-Kempthorne, who fled Manhattan a while back, make a good team: He's a carpenter and cabinetmaker, and she's a chef/caterer. When they refurbished an 1860s house in the Northwestern Catskills and opened Table on Ten , it was cause for celebration. Now, there are two rooms at the inn, and weekend visitors from NYC can stay overnight after a dinner at the cafe. "The two upstairs bedrooms echo the atmosphere and aesthetic of the cafe," the couple says. "By staying with us, you become a de facto member of the community that congregates downstairs; venture down and enjoy the food (gathered from local farms, dairies and producers), join in a workshop, browse around the microshop, or just sit, drink coffee, read or work at your laptop." For bookings, go to Cozy Room Above Table on Ten or Attic Above Table on Ten at Airbnb. Above: The second floor bedroom features a handmade queen-size bed and north and east facing windows. Above: Pillows made from reclaimed grain sacks. Above: A wall-mounted shelf serves as a small desk. Above: Lilacs from the garden. Above: The walls are painted a deep dark gray. Above: In the bath, original fixtures and fittings add to the humble feel. Above: A vintage bathtub painted slate gray. Above: The stairwell leading to the attic bedroom. Above: Under the eaves. Above: The biggest room is the entire attic floor of the building, with windows on all sides. Some look out on the life of the village, the others at the hills. Above: The king-size bed is made from reclaimed wood. Above: Vintage hangers. Above: Striped cotton curtains. Above: A peeled tree branch serves as hand rail.    Vote for Your Favorites in Each Category Once a Day Remodelista Reader Finalists Remodelista Professional Finalists Gardenista Finalists Best Dining Space Best Dining Space Best Architectural Feature Best Office Space Best Office Space Best Indoor Garden Best Kitchen Space Best Kitchen Space Best Urban Garden Best Bath Space Best Bath Space Best Edible Garden Best Bedroom Space Best Bedroom Space Best Outdoor Room   Best Children’s Space
