This is a great hotel to enjoy the Catskills, especially in the fall. My wife and I stayed here at the Captain's Inn for a short getaway. I recommend the valley view rooms for a breathtaking morning sunrise view. Room was very spacious. Captain Wayne (a real captain) and first mate Rosie are super friendly and hospitable. Simple but filling continental breakfast. The hotel is an easy 10 minute drive to nearby Wyndham, 20 min to Kaaterskill Falls, and 30 min drive to Catskill/Hudson. Highly recommend for a relaxing and fun trip.
It had a lot of live stink bugs, it was old and run down, needed a good overhaul. It was not worth the money. Its a dirty undesirable place.the lock was broken. The toilet seat fell off. The towels were old and shabby. Dont waste your money.
This was a great place, as seen by my previous reviews- However, we won't go back for a few reasons- 1- The owner is inappropriate with Ladies- and cannot handle alcohol very well 2- how the owner treats his staff- it is very disrespectful 3- The rooms were dirty- Puke stains on the bed- that had not been cleaned- ever 4- the food made us ALL very ill one evening- 5 of us were ill the next morning and could not hit the mountain- instead we hit the bathroom 5- Booking- We had friends call to book, only to be turned away because was booked... we were one of 2 couples that stayed there It is sad- it started off as a great relationship- but considering the above... it broke us. It was when he was inappropriate and "touchy" with the ladies in our party, that was the last straw.
If you are looking for a weekend getaway from the NYC area. Just two hours north is Windham mountain peaking at 3,150 ft (1,000 meters). This is my second time staying at Captain's Inn. I definitely recommend the valley view rooms if available. The morning sunrises are spectacular. See photos. Owned and operated by a real sea captain. The cap is friendly and knows every guests first name. This is the kind of of friendly service you'll experience here. If you are here during the warmer months, I'd recommend a patio lunch or dinner at 2,000 feet with a view. See Shrimp scampi photo. Overall, it is a great spot to relax and disconnect from NYC's rat race.
I stopped at this place for lunch today for the first time. The food was outstanding and the bill was reasonable. I paid the bill and left to get I to my car and the owner came running out and said "excuse me you seemed to have dropped this under your chair" and was holding 2 $100 bills! I checked my money clip and apparently the bills had fallen out as I put my change from the tab back into it. I would have never known this until I went to pay for something else MUCH later in my day!! THANK YOU for HONEST people in this day and age!! Jim with the White Corvette
