Me. my brother and his wife spent several nights @ The Deer Watch Inn. The owners Joann and Jack were so sweet, friendly and accomodating. We stayed in the quarters that their family usually stay in when they are in town. It was really spacious and had a nice view of the beautiful pond and fountain. Jack would leave food... More

My wife and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary at the Deer Watch with our hosts Joann and Jack who treated us as friends as usual. It was my wife's choice to go there, and we made the two and a half hour ride there from central Jersey to Durham, NY. Not only was the morning breakfast made by Joann... More

I've recently had my first travel adventure at the Deer Watch Inn. Joann and Jack were the warmest strangers that opened up their lovely home to me and members of my family. The place was immaculate and comfortable. The grounds were serene and manicured. I only hope my future "adventures" at a B&B can measure up to Joann and Jacks... More

We planned a quick get-a-way from our home in Western MA - and found the Deer Watch Inn. Joann and Jack were among the nicest, friendliest hosts that we've experienced at B and B's - the treated us like we were company in their home. They have a true partnership. All of JoAnn's tips about nearby hikes and restuarants were... More

We stayed here in early June for a nearby wedding. First and foremost, Jack and Joanne, the owners, are the friendliest, most accommodating hosts you could want. They are more than willing to share the history of their home with you, and to advise you on the best sights and restaurants in the area. The home was lovingly restored, and... More

Just a short drive to local Irish festivals and skiing in the Catskills is this B&B. It is about 40 minutes south of Albany, and is worth the beautiful drive. We have stayed at this bed and breakfast many times, requesting the Mary Iris Room which has its own bathroom. Some rooms share a bathroom in the hallway, others are... More

The Deer Watch Inn is a must see, must stay Inn!! Hosts, JoAnn and Jack are the sweetest people who make you feel right at home. They are easy and fun to talk to, and knew the best spots for leaf peeping! What a breathtakiing area. We chose the "Iris" room which overlooks the pond. The room was very pretty,... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed staying at the Deer Watch Inn. An acquaintance of ours (singer Andy Cooney) referred us over to his friend's B & B. Jo-Ann and Jack are the most wonderful people you'd ever want to meet. They are very friendly, accommodating to our needs and will direct us to any place we'd like to go... More

A wonderful place to stay. Jo-Ann and Jack are very hospitable and helpful. They know the area well and make excellent recommendations about excursions. The rooms are charming and historic. The food is delicious, and the hot tub is very relaxing. The inn is eco-friendly and great for kids. Highly recommended!

We just returned from a two night stay and had to post a glowing review of this lovely B & B. This historic house is beautifully and lovingly maintained, the setting is wonderful, breakfast is delicious and there really are deer here, not to mention super-sized koi in the pond. The best part of this place is the graciousness of... More
