My husband is the Presidnet of a very large union in NYS and every year two of his union regional coordinators conduct a training session at Scribner Hollow.
Not only is this hotel in one of the most beautiful areas on NYS but the staff is just exceptional. Kate and Guy Chirico, the owners are warm and friendly not just to their guests but like family to their staff which consists of students from a college nearby that offers a program to international students in the travel field. They open their hotel and their hearts to these young people to give them experience that can only be gained by association of working with Americans and learning our customs and language to further serve them in their chosen professions. Many American students also do their internships here.
Guy is an excellent chef and his talents are conveyed from breakfast thru dinner each day. Kate can be seen frequently helping out where needed or just wandering around talking to guests to make them feel at home. There is also one young lady by the name of Melissa who started out as a student doing her internship there several years ago and has become a member of the staff since graduation whom we have watched blossom under the influence of such competent owners.
Hunter Mountain offers relaxation, summer and winter fun and Scribner Hollow offers rest for those that choose to ski, sled or just spend a weekend hiking the many trails. It's not the Ritz but it is both fun and charming in its own way! It is also a hotel where children are welcome with open arms.
