We stayed in "Do Rest" cabin near the back of the property. In fact, this is the second time we have stayed there. It's 2 bedrooms, living area with kitchen, bath. Very "mountainy" with a true log cabin, Early American theme. Super clean and stocked with full size fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, etc. My only complaint would be that... More

Stayed in Cliffside cabin, mattress dipped so badly toward middle that we felt we were on a slope all night. Don't go to Rip Van Winkle Motor Lodge if you want to sleep .Also, you can only get ice when the office is open with the grumpy old man.

There aren't a lot of options on this side of the river. These cabins are clean, comfortable and generally quiet (I happened to be there on a weekend with a family reunion - who were extremely noisy outside each evening - but I understand this is the exception not the rule). The cost is reasonable. This is MUCH BETTER than... More

Always stay in one of their cabins. No frills, but quiet, clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a great get away with family or just a romantic weekend, this is the place. Grandson lives in Hudson, NY and this is much cheaper than a B&B there. Cabin this time had refrig and micro wave. Great coffee at office.... More

Went to Carl's Rip Van Winkle Lodge for the Memorial Day Weekend. Lovely surroundings but, unfortunately, bare bones accommodations. This was a family gathering and we were surprised of the total lack of amenities. This was a cabin in the woods but we expected more than a single bar of soap. No fridge, no tissues, no extra toilet paper, let... More

Right before Storm Sandy hit one of the last weekends that were nice in October we went up to Leeds and stayed at the Rip Van Winkle. As a kid I used to come up here with my family and then as my kids were little we used to come up and stay in the log cabins. This time we... More

Sister stayed in cabin in back and it was so so old and smelled sooooooooooooo musty...but clean. One evening we came out to car and it was scratched...man who worked there told me without... More

This was such a cute get-a-way! The cabins are nestled around the property and has parking at each cabin. Cabins are outdated but extremely clean! each cabin has a deck with adirondack chairs. Great place to just relax. Bring a book and some wine to entertain yourself! Nice pool area with lots of chairs and a few tables with umbrellas.... More

would have like to have stayed here, we stopped in a little before 9pm and I checked with the grumpy guy at the front desk to see if they had a room. Before booking I said I had to call to see if the rest of our party, who were traveling seperately, were going to be joining and also needed... More

Yes but only in style plus a few 'regular' motel rooms. Perfectly maintained family business showing care and courtesy. There should be more motels like this one. Run in the true American style of comfort and grace.
