Perfect in every way. Nothing left to say. This place is private, secluded and has everything you need for a quick and quiet getaway. Our Room Was generous in size with the most comfortable bed. A Skylight over the bed adds a spectacular view of the stars. Spacious bathroom thats well appointed . The lobby/lounge area with a full kitchen...

Don't bother reading all reviews, just go for it. You can't go wrong here. The place is amazing, surrounded by nature and historic towns, it's undoubtedly the perfect weekend getaway. Bronson & his wife are awesome hosts and their insights on what to do and where to eat were just flawless. I'll be back soon.

Stayed at the Hillside Schoolhouse in early December for my wife's birthday and it was perfect. The Schoolhouse has been beautifully restored and the interior has been really thoughtfully designed. Loved the furniture and finishings. We ended up spending a rainy day in the inn reading and listening to the inn's record collection. Super relaxing and it was great being...

This is the sort of place one almost doesn’t want to review, for fear that it will get discovered and you’ll never be able to get a reservation again. Thank you for saving this gem of a building and turning into the best little Inn. So quiet. So peaceful. My only regret is that we didn’t spend more time just...

My boyfriend and I stayed one night here and loved it. It's about a 2hr drive from NYC, in an adorable town. The place is so beautifully done we wished we had stayed longer. There are all the bath amenities you'd need, TVs in the room, and a full kitchen if you want to cook your own food. The owners...

The Schoolhouse is the perfect spot to get away from the city for a few days. The interior is amazing, a huge ground floor to relax and really cool bedrooms. The owners were very nice and helpful, will definitely go back.

A colleague recommended renting the entire Schoolhouse for a fun weekend away with friends - such good advice!! Having the whole place to ourselves was truly perfect, and the common space is absolutely extraordinary. The area has so much to offer - from scenic hikes and delicious food to gorgeous drives and seasonal activities like apple picking. However, our favorite...

Stayed here in October with my girlfriend and this was an amazing find. Pictures don't do this place justice, it's like something you see in a magazine. Feels like home... if your home was a beautifully repurposed schoolhouse that was designed with care and purpose. The atmosphere is perfect for a couple's getaway. Not too far from the city and...

Me and my husband stayed at this boutique Inn in October 2013. We absolutely loved, the place, tasteful decor and super warm hosts. The Inn is surrounded with beautiful trees. There are great places to visit at a close-by distance, great restaurants as well as scenic locations. Overall this place turned out to be a hidden treasure for us!

I stayed at the Hillside Schoolhouse in October 2013. It was a perfect stay! While many inns in the Catskills region are a bit on the dowdy side, Hillside Schoolhouse really stands out because it is brand new and perfectly appointed. My boyfriend and I chose to stay there based on the stunning photos on the website and found that...
