My husband and I were introduced to the George Ellen a few years ago and we've been going back every year since. The owners George and Ellen are welcoming and generous hosts. Their home sits on top of a mountain with breathtaking unonbstructed views of the Catskill mountains. Each room has its own terrace that you will not want to... More

Absolutely beautiful B&B. Everything new and immaculate! Huge breakfast featuring delicious homemade food. Ellen gave us great advice on local attractions. Very private and intimate with only 2 guest rooms.

What? Another good review??? Oh my gosh how boring! All joking aside, my husband and I seriously loved everything about our stay. Our hosts were incredibly gracious, the rooms were beautiful with all the comforts of home plus some lovely luxury amenities (big jacuzzi tub, heated floors, private balcony, etc). The views were stunning - we were treated to gorgeous... More

This is a small Bed and Breakfast nestled in the Catskills, close to Bellayre Ski Area and the German resort area. It is very private and the rooms are large, well appointed with amazing views and the bathrooms are large and have Jacuzzis in them! The breakfasts are over the top with fresh fruit, baked goods, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc.... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights, this week, at The George Ellen B & B. Ellen provided attention to even the tiniest details with thought, kindness, and graciousness; yet allowed us privacy, as well. The room, the view, the soaking tub, the breakfasts, nearby hiking... simply perfect. Our only regret is we don't live close enough to visit... More

We stayed here for two nights during our quick mountain getaway from NYC and loved it tremendously. Room was clean, and perfectly furnished with great attention to details in everything from cushions on the sofa to little night lamps. Balcony provided a perfect opportunity for a cup of tea/coffee (there's a coffee machine in the guest room) that went well... More

I was a bit skeptical that all of the other 5-star reviews were correct, but after having stayed here, I can confirm this is the case! George and Ellen were great hosts, making every effort to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were not just clean - but immaculate. If they were to tell me that nobody else... More

I met my daughter at the George Ellen for a couple of days of skiing. George and Ellen are very welcoming, helpful and accommodating. The breakfasts are excellent and copious. We had the second floor room and the view is amazing, with a vast expanse of forest all the way up the mountains. It was a cold week but the... More

George and Ellen have put together a wonderful Bed and Breakfast in the Catskill Mountains. My wife and I wanted to stay at a local B&B with a magnificent view of the mountains and a place that was comfortable, peaceful and clean for a stop over on our road trip to Boston. The George Ellen did not disappoint, in fact... More

On a combination business/pleasure trip to Boston, my husband and I spent two nights at The George Ellen. It was the highlight of our week. Very comfortable, quiet, impeccably clean room with a spacious bathroom. Absolutely gorgeous, unobstructed view of the mountains! From our private balcony, we watched hummingbirds, a gray fox, and a porcupine who ambled around the back... More
