Arnold House is a refurbished Lodge in the Catskill Mountains that still has a rustic feel. It is in a beautiful location close to outdoor activities and the site of the Woodstock festival and museum. A must see for anyone who likes sixties music. Friendly staff, great food, good service and attention to detail.

We had our wedding in the barn at the Arnold House and it could not have been better executed. Our guests lavished praise on the setting, the food and the attention to detail. And the staff at the Arnold House was thoroughly pleasant and totally professional -- planning the event was a breeze. I came away extremely happy with the... More

We love this place, food is mostly great, sometimes, rarely, it's a miss, but overall we like the looks, the atmosphere and service. Always great to play some pool too! It became our go to place for dinner every time we are visiting that area.

After reading the many great reviews of the lake house, we were excited about "getting away" for some peace and quiet. The lake house accomplished that; however the house is definitely not worth the $300 per night charge. First of all, the house needs some serious cleaning and minor repairs. The owners pride themselves on maintaining a 50's/60's decor; the... More

I heard about The Arnold House on the Today Show. I booked it immediately because of its proximity to NJ. We needed a place to go for 2 nights that was within a 3 hour drive. This was the perfect spot. Living and working at the Jersey in the summer we need a break from it all. The Arnold House... More

This place has a major upgrade compared to the old restaurant that used to be here, (Lanzas). The landscaping is nicely done and neat. The bar that is located downstairs is a lot of fun. There's a fireplace and jukebox which makes it very cozy. The upstairs is very nice and organized and large enough for a party. They have... More

Our daughter chose the Arnold House for their wedding venue and we had the opportunity to stay two days in the main hotel and two in the Garden Suite. The rooms are spacious and immaculate, comfortable and charming. The inn has a vintage vibe reminiscent of the mid-century resorts famous in the Catskills. This is a resort you visit to... More

I had an amazing week-long stay at the Lake House run by the Arnold House in late Spring. Having seen the consensus of reviews it's clear that most people get the experience. The house is gorgeous, nestled in trees with a back garden that backs onto the beautiful Shandelee Lake. I stayed in the back room and woke every morning... More
