Hello Twinmama13-Thank you for the lovely review. We were glad to be able to accommodate so many motorists who got stuck in the snow storm on 11/15/18. Luckily we had space for everyone who came in to get out of those hazardous driving conditions. Hopefully we will see some of you when the weather is better and you can enjoy our beautiful Greater Western Catskills and all they have to offer. Sincerely, Rosie Front Desk Manager
