“Great food, great host and hostess”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

We stayed two nights at the Clark House B&B, and both mornings we had superb breakfasts in the painting-filled dining room. The B&B has theme-designed rooms (The Asian Room, The French Quarter, etc.), and the house is full of lovely and surprising art and objects. Christine and Michael are excellent hosts and very interesting people. They've lived all over the world and know lots about food and wine. We highly recommend the Clark House B&B.

Room Tip: Get rooms on the side away from the road. The road-side rooms are a bit noisy, although the A/C in o...

Outstanding bed and breakfast from the congenial, warm and knowledgeable owners to the exquisitely decorated rooms. Oh I forgot the delectable breakfast, the beautiful manicured gardens, the location that allows easy access to all that the catskill area offers, the attention to every little detail ..... I could go on and on ..... first rate, definitely a must stay place when visiting the area.

Overwhelmed by the number of B&Bs in this area, we were so lucky to find this centrally located B&B. The victorian house is tastefully designed, the room airy and light with wonderful bedding, and the amenities top notch. What makes The Clark House so special, though, are the Clarks, Michael and Christine. Michael met us at the door and made us feel so welcome and at home. In the morning, Christine served breakfast, which was outstanding. From Bordeaux, she clearly enjoys cooking, and the meal showed it. A wonderful mix of fresh fruit, homemade pastries, and a light and fluffy omelet with toast. We had a wonderful chat after breakfast, and really felt like we were visiting friends. Looking at prices of other B&Bs around here (Woodstock, Saugerties, etc.,), the rates are a real bargain, because the accommodations, hospitality and breakfast are outstanding. I am sad that we are only going to be here for two nights, it is so lovely......

What can we say but...after the first day we felt that we knew the hosts Michael and Christine forever! Warm and welcoming and a wealth of information. The room was spacious, clean and tastfully decorated, the breakfasts were scrumptious and original, the house a Victorian delight. A place to seriously consider when traveling to this part of the world!

This is a fantastic alternative if looking for a place to stay while showing at HITS. It's clean, cozy, with a charming atmosphere. My daughter and I stayed in the lodge, I had a roll away bed downstairs and gave her the loft. Lots of room with a very clean bathroom. Large jacuzzi tub and hand held shower. Small refrig was also available in the room. If you want a regular shower request another room. No TV but we did have internet access so we watched a few things on my daughters computer. There are DVD players.

The owners are friendly and entertaining with stories, ask about the ghosts and the school house next door! Christine was very accommodating with breakfast since we were never quite sure when my daughter was showing her horse! The food is AWESOME you won't go hungry!

Considering what the bigger hotel chains charge not to mention lack of cleanliness ...Clark House is well priced and much more enjoyable along with better food! Stay their you won't regret it :)

We stayed here for four nights in February 2010. The B&B was easy to find and Michael and Christine made us welcome from the get go. Each room was individually decorated and clean and tidy. Michael and Christine offered great advice on where to visit in the locality and there were many great little townships to visit in the vicinity - we were there to ski at Hunter Mountain and Wyndham mountain and they were just a short drive away.
Just opposite the B&B there was a great local bar with basic food and a warm welcome.
Breakfasts at the Clark House were really good quality food, served at your convenience between 8am and 10am.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the B&B for anyone looking for a warm welcome in a relaxing setting.

In short, this B&B and its proprietors were the backbone of a great ski trip in the Catskills!
The house itself is very well attended to and you can tell that attention is paid to every last detail in decor and presentation. Super clean, authentic and creative.
The hosts prepared excellent breakfasts each morning and were super attentive and personable - not to mention their great recommendations for sightseeing and dining in the area.
This is a fantastic spot if you want to really get away from it all. There is no television (with the exception of a DVD player in the Lodge room) which might be an issue for some, but if you are filling you days in the great outdoors or touring local towns it is more than entertaining enough to come back and relax in the outdoor jacuzzi or sip a glass of wine in front of the fireplace with a book or board game.
Kudos to Michael and Christine!
