We really enjoyed our stay at Scribner Hollow on our long Weekend during the German Alpenfest in August. At night we watched the Festival fireworks from the Hotel. It's an extraordinary location in Hunter. Just a short walk to the Mountain..The selection of single malt scotches and beer at the Prospect Restaurant bar is outstanding. Get the bacon wrapped BBQ...

BRAVO! They have it all! Great food and wines, spectacular views, warm personable service. Their downstairs "Grotto" Spa is first rate too! Bring your appetite and your bathing suit! Theirs is also the coziest and romantic (fireplace and piano) bar in the Catskill Mountains. We'll aways come back here.

This hotel is like stepping back into 1982 and not in a cool, retro type of way. Dirty, dilapidated and in dire need of a TRUE renovation. Requested to move rooms because the first was filthy. Switched to a "duplex" which was a little less dirty but much mustier smelling. Was charged $239 for mold around the window, drawer hanging... More

Beautiful views. We recently had our wedding and reception at Scribner Hollow Lodge. The food was amazing. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. Our friends and family are still commenting on what a great time they had.

After a busy business trip in Manhattan this was a great location to deflate from the work life that was different for a couple of days. Scribner Hollow Lodge was recommended by a business associate. They definitely succeeded in achieving my every expectation to the fullest. The staff was always friendly and courteous as they handled all my needs. The... More

My family checked in for 1 night. The room for 2 double beds cost $324.50. Their website states that it has been featured in a ton of magazines, maybe 20 years ago. The room was very dirty, mold in the shower, floor stained, light bulbs that didn't work, railing on our room balcony was completely rusted off leaving a huge... More

We were heading to this area for an anniversary getaway, and after carefully researching options in the Woodstock NY area, booked the Scribner Hollow Lodge. Since it was a special getaway, we made the reservations 3 months in advance. 3 weeks prior to our stay, we received a phone call canceling. While I did not ask for details, they simply... More

It was my first time in Hunter, NY. I stayed there between 23rd and 25th May 2014. The hotel has its charms on the spectecular view of the skiing mountain which you can see it from the hotel rooms and the different room styles which staff kindly showed me around. Those are two storey or loft style where the bed... More

We, family of 5(3kids under 11) decided to get back to nature in the Catskill Mountains. We stayed at the Scriber Hollow Lodge and had a great time. The staff was as great as the scenery. They were very helpful and attentive to our needs. Our room was clean and the food was fantastic. I just wish we had more... More

This place was possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. We arrived late at night and the only staff member there had absolutely no idea who we were even though we had already made a reservation. After about twenty minutes of him trying to book a room for us, he showed us to our room. We unpacked and... More
