Roscoe New York is a hamlet (and census-designated place) in Sullivan County, New York, United States. The population was 541 at the 2010 census.

Roscoe is in the southwest part of the Town of Rockland, adjacent to New York State Route 17.

It is named for New York Senator Roscoe Conkling. Roscoe calls itself “Trout Town, USA.” The town is a destination for fly-fishing enthusiasts because of its location at the intersection of two rivers famous for trout fishing (the Beaver Kill and the Willowemoc Creek).

The community is a popular stopping point for people traveling along Route 17 (between New York City and Binghamton, New York) because the facilities are right by the access road to the highway. These include gas stations and convenience stores, and, of course, the Roscoe Diner. We discovered a fabulous restaurant on our journey. We wouldn’t be surprised if people travel from miles around go to the Rockland House Restaurant. We also enjoyed a fabulous stay at the adjoining motel. We were out all night doing milky way photography and rolled in for a good night’s sleep around 1 a.m. This very quiet and spotless motel is run by great management. Check out the photos of the salad bar and the serene area of the motel. This motel is often used by people in town fishing and or hunting. We immensely enjoyed our stay.

The only bags we use! That should say it all.

Here are some daytime locations where you can do photography. The town is so small you can easily find all of these areas, then venture to the surrounding cities before coming back for milky way photography about an hour after sunset.

Rockland House Motel and Restaurant

159 Rockland Rd, Roscoe, NY 12776(607) 498-4240
This family-run motel with an outstanding restaurant and a bar that is located on the main road that runs through Roscoe.

This motel offers rooms with one double bed, king-size beds or 2 double beds. The rooms have a private bath, air conditioner, cable television with flat-screen tvs and high-speed internet at rates that are designed to fit anyone’s budget.

We loved that they had a coffee room when we loaded up to go out for milky way photography till the wee hours. It is also equipped with a microwave, toaster, and table.

You are sure to enjoy your stay with here while doing milky way photography. The motel is within walking distance to great fishing, a nine-hole golf course, the Roscoe Beer Company, Prohibition Distillery in case you want to do something else during the day and do milky way photography at night.

The restaurant is only a few short steps away so you can enjoy dinner and drinks to end the day. Just don’t drink and drive and milky way. 🙂
