“Thumbs down.....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

It's never a good sign when you walk into a guest room to find the remnants of previous visitors. We found a hairclip on the table right by the door, a pair of socks & empty plastic bag in the drawer, chapstick under the night stand & a long hair (not ours) on the shower wall. There was a light bulb out over the bed. There were no comfortable chairs to sit & relax & read, so I brought my own folding chair in from my vehicle. I don't mind simple & even spartan, but this was not an attractive room. It's amazing how online photos can make things look much nicer than reality. The advertising describes a provided in room breakfast. We were shocked when we were told that this consists of a plastic tub of hard as a rock scones & two chocolate cookies that had turned white with age & too cold a temperature that were in the little refrigerator in the room. Coffee was do it yourself from generic coffee packs & a small coffee maker. The fruit was two apples. No butter, jam, milk or creamer was provided. This is hands down the strangest provided breakfast I have ever encountered. All this for nearly $150. for our one night visit. We couldn't leave fast enough the next morning & couldn't help but notice that we had been the only overnight guests. My partner & I kept wondering why the proprietors didn't take the few extra, inexpensive steps to make this a special place to stay. How hard would it be to deliver a pot of hot coffee & a basket of warmed muffins to a room in the morning? Either they just don't get it, or the lodging is very low on their list of priorities. Mostly, it seemed like they were trying to get away with charging as much as they could while providing as little as possible. One wonders how many guests return for the lodging. I notice that many of the other Trip Advisor reviews are for just the restaurant. Make no mistake - there is a huge gap in quality between the two. We ate our dinner there because of all the positive restaurant reviews. Aside from the fact that we sat at the table 80 minutes before our entrée was served, the food was ok - perhaps some of the other choices would have been better than ours. The flourless chocolate cake & homemade ginger ice cream & cappuccino was spectacular. How ironic that the same chefs capable of preparing this, would think that the hard as a rock in room scones would be remotely appealing.

What a pleasant surprise! The food at the mountain gem was absolutely delicious ... nicely prepared, fresh, local, and done just right. The goose special was incredible and was served with a nice assortment of vegetables (a bit of beets, some brussel sprouts, squash puree) ... the other diners in our party enjoyed their meals, too. A definite place to return (and perhaps next time we'll stay in the inn).

The rooms here are nicely appointed and extremely comfortable. The scenery around the place is breathtaking. The winding roads in the area reveal a never ending stage of babbling brooks, mountains, and wooded foliage.

As nice as the rooms are, the restaurant is even better. The fresh ingredients are combined to make the most enticing meals I've ever seen. The smoked duck salad is a particular favorite but every meal we've had there has had great presentation and has tasted wonderful. I loved the swordfish with pesto and my wife couldn't stop raving about her smoked trout. The best part about staying here is it provides time to explore the other great sounding dishes which make choosing just one entree so hard.

This is our one must-visit place in the Hudson Valley anytime we're close enough to stop by.

An intimate dining room that is simple but nice. I read a review that said the decor would stop them from coming back that stumped me. Wood tables and window trim, pale yellow and green with high end metallic wallpaper. Totally uncluttered with a few painting on the walls. Obviously not at the Ritz but extremely pleasant and relaxing. The food was stellar and a real surprise considering the location. This place is WAY underrated. Again some of the reviews were bizarre. We enjoyed a chilled green garlic soup that was smooth without the bite that garlic sometime has and the spiced lamb meatballs in cured tomato with harissa and charred onions that absolutely delicious.Next we delved into smoked trout salad with garlic potatoes, lemony cole slaw and crispy picked beets, a chopped spinach salad that was rough chopped with hunks of bleu cheese, sliced egg, smoky bacon and sauteed shitake mushrooms.The trout was boneless,tender and moist, truly one of the best I have had and the spinach was maple sweet with cheese and bacon salty which I could ear everyday. For dinner we ordered the pork shank with bourbon sauce and sage mustard witch was braised, smoked and fell off the bone and the roasted chicken breast with pancetta and garlic confit. Both the sauces were rich in flavor and complexity. I had wheat bulgar flavored with red peppers, onion and bacon, My companion was served creamy soft polenta with her chicken dish. Again delicious. We ordered just one dessert the bourbon banana bread pudding with ginger ice cream. Best bread pudding. Really. I will enthusiastically return as it was definitely worth the trip hands down, again and again.

I live in the area and have had some wonderful meals and enjoyed the serene and beautiful ambience at Catskill Rose. Last week we had a family reunion and we needed to find rooms for several family members. I booked a room for my daughter and her husband They absolutely loved it. Couldn't say enough good things about how special it was, how clean it was and how comfortable they were. They are not easy to please so I know it had to be beyond average.

This place has a charming restaurant. Having a home in the local area I've never experienced the B&B side but it has a great local reputation. My review is for the restaurant only. When you arrive follow the path around to the dining room. The owners have done marvels with the gardens. I was part of a large group giving a farewell party for the pastor of our local church. We had twelve on a Sunday afternoon and the owner was gracious enough to open a little early to accommodate our group. Every member of our group raved about the food. Not one negative comment. Personally my meal started with a wonderfully fresh salad followed by a perfectly done scollop dish and a rhubarb cobbler with homemade strawberry ice cream on top. It was fantastic. The owners have an active garden that supplies the freshest ingredients and garnish. I saw one of my fellow diners enjoying a pork shank that looked mouth watering. I also heard the salmon was superb. Owner Peter is well known in the community and knows how to treat the locals as well as his new B&B guests. They have a beautiful patio dining area where you will be surrounded by flowers. There is a full bar with a nice wine selection. Seek out this gem, it is worth the trip.

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary weekend getaway. Mt. Tremper is conveniently located between Woodstock and Phoenicia and alongside Esopus Creek. We are not fans of your typical B&B -- awkward breakfast conversations with strange people, thin bedroom walls, etc. The rooms at the Catskill Rose each have their own small porch and entry; there is no common space unless you count the restaurant/garden, which were closed during our stay in late April. My husband did not get cell phone reception (AT&T) and I was able to make phone calls with mine (Sprint). The rooms are immaculate -- a large, comfortable bed greets you and there is a small dining table for two with a basket of fruit. You have a spacious dresser and TV/stand, a coffee maker, a small fridge and a microwave with plates and silverware and coffee cups. The bathrooms are clean with a shower only. They also provide you with shampoo/shower gel and hand soap via dispensers on the walls. The internet connection was spotty at best. We were allowed to check in an hour early or so and the fridge contained several tasty scones that we ate for breakfast the next morning before a hike. The owners were not around for check-out, but we were able to drop off our keys. Because of the location, the cleanliness, the comfort and the privacy, we would certainly consider staying here again! We would also recommend a trip to nearby Phoenicia -- while you're there, check out Brio's! Large portions and tasty food!
