My husband and I spent 3 nights here for our 10th anniversary. We stayed 1 night in Cinderellas Gown and 2 in the Beautiful Blacksmith. Not only the rooms/suites but the entire grounds are meticulously maintained. *Very* clean, spotless in fact. I was impressed as many of the rooms/suites have marble, mirrored and brass surfaces which you can easily tell are cleaned routinely. Spotless. Upon arrival you are swept up in this world of whimsical, wonderfulness. Emersed in detail, whether it be the 1920s, Faery lands or Gods/Goddesses you are taken to a place which dreams, become reality....which is exactly what we were looking for. We wanted to feel spoiled, taken care of, and something new. The Roxbury 100% took care of us. The facility was beautiful, the staff were outstanding! I loved the breakfast bags... Such a cute idea, and more than enough to start your day. We left feeling refreshed and looking forward to returning. We absolutely will be repeat guests and look forward to our next adventure at the Roxbury🧡💚💙

Hotel's Favorite
After feeling trapped during the worst of the pandemic, we desperately searched for a place that we felt safe AND still gave us a feeling of being far, far away… AND spoiled. We are incredibly grateful to have found The Roxbury Motel/ The Roxbury at Stratton Falls, its welcoming owners, Greg & Joe, and its warm & hardworking staff. We first visited in June of 2021. It was love at first sight. We have now completed 5 stays (in 10 rooms) in 1 year. I never imagined that I would feel the giddy excitement of visiting the same hotel so frequently BUT each stay is like Christmas morning! We anxiously look forward to discovering each of the MANY enchanting details in every new room. This is no cookie cutter hotel… no two rooms are alike! Luxurious whimsy is the law of the land. The Roxbury checked all of the necessary “boxes” for us: gorgeous surroundings (inside and out), magnificent & magical attention to details (inside and out), quality linens & bedding, wonderful toiletries AND beautiful pool & spa areas which will make you feel like you are at a far away resort. The Roxbury also addressed all of the new “must haves” that the days of covid added… excellent safety & cleanliness measures, separate exterior entrances to each room, windows that actually open to allow for fresh air into the rooms, a reservation system at each of the 3 spas that allows for private usage and the same reservation system for the pool area which prevents it from becoming crowded. We hope these things never change! Continental breakfast is included and ordered nightly via the website. I have read some reviews that prefer their “old” buffet style breakfast layout but honestly, for the current times, this method is the most sanitary. For those who need more, there is a wonderful café (The Watershed) up the “block” from the motel that offers baked goods, excellent coffees, teas, lattes AND a selection of breakfast options. We have stayed in every room category except for in the mansion. (That will be our next visit.) We have enjoyed each room category for different reasons. Each category has its own charms & benefits. I suggest exploring the website and choosing your room based on what you want from your stay. The original motel offers a close proximity to 2 spas, a magnificent mountain view outdoor living space, access to a wonderful deck with a firepit and comfortable seating. In this section, The Shagadellic room offers a full kitchen for those who want that flexibility. Genie’s Bottle is one of our favorite rooms… with its peaceful mountain view & cheerful & bright interior colors. Even the tiniest room, Studio One, had us smiling with its ”Maleficant-esque” feel & hand painted trees and moon wall murals. The motel NORTH section has larger 2 bedroom suites & “big king” rooms. We loved Maryanne’s Coconut Cream Pie. Incredibly whimsical and extremely comfortable. Being a corner room, it had beautiful light inside. Don’t miss out on the pie either… probably the best coconut cream pie we’ve ever had! This trip we stayed in the Final Frontier. What a fun room! Be sure to turn off all of the lights and make the living room as dark as possible before turning on the “special ceiling effect”. MESMERIZING! Also, keep an eye out for the glow in the dark tiles. The Stratton Falls location is a short scenic 2 mile drive away. The pool & breathtaking waterfall are located on this part of the property. With all of these gorgeous outdoor spaces, you never have to leave The Roxbury to have a different view. The Crooked Cabana pool area is the perfect place to unwind. Brazilian music and cocktails flow! Delicious fruit infused water is available poolside to help you beat the heat. Well appointed changing rooms are located in the Crooked Cabana. A reservable larger spa tub & sauna are also here. The Mansion, Tower Cottages & an outdoor living space with fire pit are also at this part of the Stratton Falls property. The lobby is inside the Mansion & is another “not to miss” space. Just as at the motel lobby, coffee & tea & snacks are available here. We have stayed in two Tower Cottages (so far). This trip we stayed in the glamourous Lost Horizon. Inspired by Old Hollywood, this is the most elegant of all of The Roxbury rooms. Absolutely swoon-worthy! Like most of the Tower Cottages, this room had a screened deck with a dining table as well as an open deck on the second floor with sun loungers. We finally got to share this very special place with friends, this trip, and have already made believers of them. Last winter, we stayed in the Crown of the Pendragons cottage. It was the perfect luxurious romantic stay. This cottage has one bedroom. The entire second floor was an amazing bathroom fit for a Queen and her King. During this trip, EVERY room was sold out but you would not have known it... it was as peaceful and private as ever! We could gush about The Roxbury for days. If you love whimsy AND luxury then this is the wonderland you are looking for!

This was our second stay at the Roxbury and honestly it hits on all cylinders. Picked the “Angel Hair” room which was a fun Charlie’s Angels theme. The room is on the first floor of the North tower so it’s a little dark but it’s no big deal, great for sleeping. Sheets divine, comforter down or down alternative insert a Little crunchy sounding but very cozy. Staff all great at check in. Lots of rules and regulations so know that this isn’t a party hotel- thankfully!!! Glad to see the attention to detail. Also note while the included breakfast is nice, it’s nothing to write home about. I’d skip it and head to town for breakfast. Shimmer spa with hot tub and sauna great. Would like to have been able to hang out with more friends there but the rules dictate only one room at a time. No big deal! Highly reco going to the sister Stratton falls property and hiking the trail. So pretty and thoughtfully constructed for photo ops. Very cool. Also the Watershed coffee shop, chappies, and the Roxbury general are do not miss spots in town. Will be back to stay at the Stratton falls hotel one day. Both are great hotels to stay and explore the area.

The motel was a delight! We stayed in the Partridge Nest which was bright and cozy. Though the room was small, it had everything we needed and the bed, towels and accessories were top notch. On our first trip since the pandemic, the Roxbury staff went the extra mile to make sure everything was clean and sanitized. I wish o didn’t live on the opposite coast as I would like to stay in each of the themed rooms.

We stayed here in April 2022. I follow certain groups on Facebook and something popped up about the best hotels in NY. I glanced at it and saw this hotel. After going to the website, I was obsessed. How awesome! My family had tickets to the new Legoland in Goshen, NY that we just wanted to use after holding onto them for 2 years. This place was about 2 hours from there and about an hour to Cooperstown NY which I picked as a second destination. My biggest complaint is that this place seems to be in the middle of no where. Where are stores?! Maybe this is more for nature loving people... or maybe I am missing something. We comes from Long Island, NY so these remote sparse areas are unfamiliar to us. When I say in the middle of no where - I don;t mean nothing is around... there are other houses, etc. I mean the overall town? Area of NY? The good thing was it was SO quite due to this type of location. When we arrived, the front desk was s helpful. Answered multiple questions, directed us appropriately. We chose the coconut cream pie room. We chose this because I have a 10 and 7 year old who hate sharing beds but the pull out couches in the other rooms were only doubles so if they share, I like putting them in a Queen to give them more personal space. The coconut cream pie room had 2 pull out twin couches which fit our needs perfectly. The room was very spacious... and amazing!! The boys were so excited walking in, anxious to explore. The room is very detailed and we loved the double shower. My kids never saw that before and were enamored. A minor complaint was the breakfast situation. We were instructed to pick 4 things per person plus a drink, condiments etc on the website. I did that, but we only received half of our order and when we went down to get the rest, we didn't get it all due to supply. That was annoying as we had 4 people to feed and we carefully selected our options. Overall, this was a very fun overnight stay and I just wish it was closer to us to do another one.

I’m an avid fan of the movie The Wizard of Oz. My husband saw a special about the Roxbury on CBS and saw The Wizard’s Emeralds room and decided we would spend our 38th anniversary there. Our anniversary is in August but he booked it in February. That’s a long time to keep a secret. When we got there, he had me close my eyes before going into the room. When I opened them, I was standing on the Yellow Brick Road!! The room and all the details was awesome! We also enjoyed the patio, the back yard, the spa facilities, the pool, and Stratton Falls. We had such a great time, before we left, we booked for next year!

We spent two nights at this wonderful hotel. Stayed in the Pampered Postmaster that had a small outdoor area with chaise lounges and an outdoor shower. Beautiful attention to details in our room and all public spaces. Loved the hot tub and pool and really liked the reservation system that keep things uncrowned. Cocktails were great too! Continental breakfast was good with sufficient choices. We liked the Roxbury so much that my husband insisted we book the same room for next year before we left. Choices for food in the area are limited though so don’t have high expectations.

Really liked this place. Highly recommend. Room (Mill of Frozen Falls) was clean and nice. Staff was friendly and very helpful at all stages -- from initial reservation to checkout. Enjoyed the fire pit. Pool staff was exceptionally nice. Good selection of wines in fridge. Breakfast items could be a bit more special. Will happily return. Have already recommended to others.

It’s been a while since I have submitted a review even though I have been visiting literally every year since 2009. But this cottage, The Faerie Forest is my absolute favorite of all time forever and ever period. The level of detail , wow. It really was, is a labor of love.

No complaints at all about the hotel and the staff. This place rates as one of the best places I have ever stayed. Only criticism is the restaurants in Roxbury are few and understaffed. Thumbs up to the Watershed, thumbs down to Chappies and the Old Mill.
