I've been going to the catskils for about 4 years and I've stayed at dozens of places there. Slide Mountain Forest House is one of those places that is classic catskills atmosphere. Great location in the mountains, staff was very helpful. Rooms were clean. meal was great! This is a great family-run establishment.

This place is a bit hard to describe. You instantly get the old world German Hunting lodge vibe, but the room #1 that i stayed in was modern and cabin combined. The History as I understood it, is this... 85+ years ago a German couple purchased some land and build a lodge/ B&B, and it's been in the family ever... More

We stayed in one of the main building rooms on second floor after discovering this place by serendipity during our exploration of Catskills. On the first floor there is a restaurant but the building does not convey noise. We had a clean, small , pleasant room with nice bathroom, TV and Eastern German style decor. WiFi was available downstairs but... More

This hotel had wonderful staff, a great breakfast, and we loved the old world ambience. It was reasonably priced as well. The pool was refreshing. It is a perfect location to stay if you are hiking Giant Ledge or Panther Mountain. The rooms are plain, but immaculate.

Nostalgic resort in pleasant location. Outstanding German oriented food. Handled our large multigenerational group very well. The weather helped - wonderful sunshine and mountain air. Easy access to many hiking trails in Catskills. Forst Castle a short drive as was Frost Valley YMCA.
