Reviewed 31 May 2016

The staff and the grounds were fantastic. The rooms, lobby, everything were clean and welcoming. Complimentary breakfast is provided. When checking out I noticed housekeeping in the room across from ours opening the dresser drawers and dusting INSIDE them.

Just came back from a 4 day trip with 4 of our friends. Our rooms were nice, clean and cozy. The hotel staff was super welcoming. The location is ideal. So close to the mountain and all the restaurants. This wasn't the Hyatt but so worth the money. We are definitely coming back again!

The people that worked there were absolutely wonderful. Not only were they warm and friendly but were very helpful. The room was large and had a very old smell to it. The beds were comfy and the shower pressure was perfect (2 very important things for me.) the only disappointing thing was the "continental breakfast" the limited options and added...

I feel like this hotel resort used to be a premium place to stay, you can still get the sense of the retro glory days. The resort is situated alongside a beautiful creek right amongst the Catskills and is a less than five minute drive from Wyndham Mountain Ski Area. There is a large pool in the center of the...

Our autumn stay was short but extremely enjoyable. If you are looking for a country hotel that will relax you, this is the perfect setting. The food is satisfying (how about blueberry waffles?) and the owners/managers couldn't be more hospitable. Take a walk on "The Windham Path" or visit the town of Windham to window shop or grab a bite...

It is always wonderful to have you and your family stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed this stay as much as your other ones. Blueberry waffles and pancakes are very popular, especially in the fall.
