the reason why there is no WIFI is because it's miles/kilometers beyond the nearest Internet connection. it's in the middle of the NYS Catskill Forest and part of the NYC water system including Neversink, Delaware, Willowemoc, Mongaup... etc catchment area. WIFI and I believe cell phones don't reach this far into the area because the NY State constitution sets aside this region as wilderness... one of the few east coast wilderness preserves. when i was a kid in the 40s and 50s there were hotels farms factories but that's all gone. 60 years ago there was an airport a train station, industrial poultry farms, huge hotels. now all gone. no place like DeBruce anywhere. nearby artists abound. birds wildflowers wild berries wild animals. i've seen wild mink. eagles heron [never saw a turkey] pheasant deer galore. not too far from Dai Bosatsu Zendo. [30 40 minute drive] DeBruce NY is in Wikipedia. Have a B&B in Turkey. I am a photographer and this place is beyond photogenic. I don't understand really some of the reviews which say it isn't modern and urbanized and hilton hotel like really. you want Hilton, go to Central Park and feed those ducks. I've never stayed in a better place of its type. Didn't eat there, as I have strict dietary restrictions and am Muslim so unless I know who killed the animal bird or fish I can't eat it. On labor day Weekend there is the annual DeBruce Family Parade. Deer season and trout season. [I'm not permitted to hunt for sport.] Actually Dry fly fishing was invented here at the junction of Mongaup and Willowemoc. around 1840-50. and the split cane trout rod was used here in the early nineteenth century. You gotta go to Maine or West Virginia for wilderness wilder than this. don't tell the owners i mentioned them. [i am not on speaking terms].
