We did check in the Thursday before Labor Day and statyed until the following Wednesday. We were charged differently for the... More

this is a very special place. Sfall wonderful especially Mary who accepted our reservation and greeted us when we arrived. We stayed in the main building and the room was clean and the beds where comfortalble. Dinner of corn beef and cabbage was the best. Our breakfast was perfect and Ann made us a nice lunch. Hope to return again

I started going to East Durham as a toddler. In Gavin's defense the whole area is economically depressed. Having said that, we booked the cottage so we had 2 ajoining rooms with a mutual sitting room. Each room had holes in the ceilings, walls or both. The furniture in the sitting area looked as if it were removed from someone's... More

We sincerely apologize. You happened to check-in Labor Day Monday. A true downtime for us and the most tourist areas. Upon making your reservation, you were offered our room rate without meals. You were also informed upon checking-in that you basically would have the Inn to yourself. We would have gladly assisted you in room changes / room complaints if... More

This place is a throwback to a simpler time and I mean this in a good way. We are not even all the way home from our long 4th of July weekend and already my grandchildren are asking when we can go back! I spent alot of time vacationing in Green County as a kid and my husband spent his... More

Staff is excellent. Anything that was asked for was taken care of quickly and with a good attitude. The rooms were clean and neat. Carpeting appeared to have been replaced and rooms painted over the past winter. The food we had was always good and when we asked for changes in the menu it was never a problem. Nightlife was...

My family and I have had 2 wonderful family reunions at Gavin's and are planning another one for 2013! They offer lots of activities; our kids loved the rock wall. Having a 7 year old granddaughter I like stay in the building right next to the swings.

My "very good" rating is based on comparison with other available places to stay in East Durham, so this is a relative scale for this town only. We attended the last day concerts for the Catskills Irish Arts Week. Most other places to stay were extremely run down to the point of being structurally unsound, and were not clean. We... More

Our family has visited Gavin's several times over the last five years and we always find it a warm and welcoming experience. Each time we visit we find the Gavin family has improved what has always been a comfortable resort. For instance, on Mother's Day weekend this year (May 11-13, 2012) we found the newly included refrigerators and microwaves in... More
