My boyfriend and I had been traveling for a few days in the Catskills and the inn was our last stop. We were delighted to see all of the grounds, adorable buildings, and loved the old school bowling lanes. We spoke with Yasmin making our reservation who was super sweet and friendly. Once we arrived, she greeted us and showed us the property, which is spectacular:) After getting the key to our room, there were many adorable touches that were left for us. Delicious cookies, handmade masks from a local company, two glasses to fill with cider, a s’mores kit and other sweet touches. We had the opportunity to eat at their restaurant...the four course options for dinner were outstanding and we loved the wines too. Couldn’t ask for a better selection. Breakfast the next morning was bagged for us to eat safely in any of the spaces on the grounds. They had packed hard boiled eggs, a delicious mixed green salad with fresh strawberries, over night oats, and chocolate/banana bread. The coffee was perfect too. We felt like The North Branch Inn was a spectacular ending to our weekend getaway. The friendly staff, beautiful scenery, and the rest of the accommodations were fantastic. Don’t miss out! Hopefully when we return, Covid will be gone and we’ll be able to bowl :) Thanks Yasmin for making our experience extremely special.

We had a lovely time staying here. Our room (queen room in the main building) was pretty and cozy, and we enjoyed both the breakfast and dinner options on site. The staff (huge shout out to Phil!) took great care of us when we unexpectedly had to stay longer than originally planned. There are a number of additional good restaurants within easy driving distance and this was a nice base for us for exploring this part of the Catskills. We'll be back!

My partner and I had the most wonderful experience recently at the North Branch Inn!
The new owners were incredibly accommodating for us - they changed our dates and card on file due to some conflicts that popped up, made sure that our every need was met and expectations exceeded while on property and made us feel so welcome. We cannot wait to book our next stay back! The little touches really are what hit home for us.
Thank you so much to everyone at the North Branch Inn <3 You made our vacation so memorable and relaxing and we will definitely be singing your praises to everyone we know. We can't wait to come back

We stayed here for a wedding in 2 rooms in the main inn. The rooms were $349 each plus tax (we were told it would be $250/night) and especially considering the high price were some of the worst I have ever stayed in. The most uncomfortable beds ever that literally gave us terrible back pain, lumpy pillows, holes in the sheets, shortage of bath towels, no central A/C (just a window unit in bedroom and no A/C or vent in bathroom), everything was old, no room amenities whatsoever. I think they are going for a rustic chic look but it just looked old, cheaply furnished from yard sales, and the inn is in terrible need of renovations and updates. Unreliable water for showers- just a trickle whenever any water was being used elsewhere in the building. Not at all child friendly other than the grounds and bowling alley. Dinner food was served cold and not that great- one main course (fish, cauliflower & mushrooms) was literally burned to a crisp. Breakfast was just a continental breakfast and not kid friendly- no fruit, vegan oats and only cereal was plain Cheerios. Parking lot is small, muddy. Front sidewalk is crumbling. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else!

Hotel is cute, but the price-quality ratio is appalling. Stayed on a cold night in October; no heat. Sound proofing is nonexisting; you hear everything from above, outside, etc.
Place is just rickety all over. No services. Since it has charm, I would maybe price rooms at 200, 250 tops, NEVER at more than 400, which is what we paid.

We have just returned from a wonderful three nights at the North Branch Inn. Andrew and Meng were the most charming hosts and couldn’t have done enough to make us feel at home. The rooms are large and have beautiful furniture. We loved the addition of the garden flowers. Everything is spotless. All the staff were charming. The gardens are also gorgeous. There are guest lounges with tea and coffee plus a refrigerator. The breakfasts were imaginative and delicious (as was the one dinner we had). Honestly, I can’t find any fault in this place - we have travelled a lot all around the world for work and have stayed in some pretty amazing places but the welcome we received in this beautiful Inn was so special that it rates 10 stars from us!

This quaint and cozy Inn was the perfect Upstate weekend getaway for enjoying Fall activities. The FSH group always hits it out if the park with hospitality standards. North Branch Inn was no stranger to this. The manager, Phil stepped it up a notch and made our stay incredible.

We spent a weekend at the inn and highly recommend it for dinner in their excellent restaurant. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and an inventive menu. The accomodations were solid, nothing fancy but cozy. These are old buildings so sound certainly carries. For that reason we were glad to have the second floor suite in the Post Office building as it was a bit more secluded.

We stayed in this beautiful, quiet inn to attend James Taylor concert at Bethel Woods. About 20 min drive - not bad.
This place is amazing, We stayed in Post Office bedroom. The room and bedsheets is clean.
The place we stayed is also good for a big family- plenty of rooms and bathrooms.
I highly recommend this place.

Thanks for your question! We have wifi service throughout our property however we purposely do not have any tvs in the rooms or our common spaces. For those that do choose to keep plugged in during their stay, the wifi is fast enough for computer/ipad/tablet streaming video. I hope this helps!
