“Excellent location magical surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

We stayed at Brookside B & B, Haines Falls, during late July. A charming,period house, nestled in the Catskills mountains. The large en suite bedroom was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a decked area,just outside, perfect for enjoying the view and the visiting wildlife. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. Hosts Markus and Nuala were eager to share their knowledge of the locale and it's history. The food is of the highest standard - european style strawberry pancakes and banana bread a great start to anyone's day.
Our stay was too short, so much to see and do and Brookside is the perfect starting point. Finish off the day with an ice cream at the Twilight Store or a beer on the porch what more could you ask for - can't wait to go back during the winter to see it covered in snow.

This was our first trip to the US and we decided to spend all of our 8 days at Brookside. We just loved everything about the place. We had a lovely spacious room at the front of the house and it was always quiet. We shared a bathroom but that was never a problem and I think one of the other rooms has an en-suite. There is also a large living room and a dining room and we really felt at home.
Nuala and Markus made us so welcome. They were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was always a real treat. Everything was beautifully cooked, including lots of local produce and their own homemade jams and preserves. They even put on a late breakfast for us when we had a couple of late nights after the Mountain Jam festival at Hunter!
Brookside is a lovely traditional building, dating back to the late 19th century. It is on the road to North-South Lakes and couldn’t be more convenient for the local attractions. We had some great walks from the lakes to some amazing viewpoints over the Catskills and the Hudson Valley, and also made several visits to the Katerskill Falls which are close by. We also enjoyed trips to the local towns including Saugerties and Woodstock. We could just relax on the front porch or wander around the garden which we shared with Mousey the cat as well as the dog and chickens!
Overall we had the most fantastic week. For anyone visiting New York, I would recommend getting out into some beautiful, unspoilt countryside and staying at Brookside which was only about 2 ½ hours north of Newark airport.
