“This B&B deserves every star of its rating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Preferring B&Bs to other accommodations, we were attracted to this B&B by the outstanding Tripadvisor rating. In short, my husband and I were not disappointed and am happy to say that Ecce - Alan and Kurt - deserve every star of their rating. Spending 2 nights during Columbus Day weekend in the gorgeous Woods Room (well appointed with spacious seating area and fresh flowers), we were treated to wonderful hospitality and delicious food and drink. Ecce skimps on nothing - from the luxurious bedding and linens to the Flavia coffee machines in each room and complimentary in-room beverages (water, soda, coffee, hot chocolate). Movies, books are available for those who really just want to unwind without exploring as well as cozy bathrobes when soaking in the tub or just lounging around is the order of the day. Two hiking trails are part of the Ecce property catering to both beginner and intermediate hikers and the hosts have crafted a clever scavenger hunt (with prizes!) for each to make the trails even more exciting. During our hike on the beginner trail, while we missed some of the scavenger hunt items, we were treated to a flock of wild turkey who were sharing the forest - truly breathtaking! The beautiful weather allowed us to enjoy the full effect of the breathtaking view for both evening hors d'oeuvre and cocktails (complimentary) and morning breakfast (cooked to order and delicious!). Aside from the multi-level deck off the house, the property also features an elevated viewing area which my husband and I took the time to enjoy with a bottle of wine and some local apples and cheese, and also an area with chaise lounges for those who might want to bask in the sun or just nap in nature. The hosts are in their element and display their expertise at running a premier B&B at every turn - whether in offering advice for local dining or sight seeing (this area is home to the majestic American Bald Eagle and nesting sights can be found in season) or simply knowing when guests prefer privacy. Looking forward to a time when we can once again visit and enjoy all Ecce has to offer!

It is always a wonderful surprise to be in a place that exceed you expectations. My husband and I were looking for a B&B 2 hours from NYC, and happened to stumble upon the ECCE place. We have so many great things to say about this place... The house and the view from it are absolutely amazing. the interior decoration is refined to the little details. the hospitality of Allan and Kurt is heart-warming. We felt like they didn't spare a thing to make us feel at home.
Very very recommended for couples.

Room Tip: We slept in the Ridge room. while the room was great and beautiful, the only problem with it was tha...

My wife and I had a wonderful quiet weekend away in a beautiful room with an amazing view and our host could not have been better. Never had a breakfast like that in my life and he makes a great cocktail as well. Also, we always enjoy the Christmas card we get every year which reminds us we need to go back. Planning next trip right now.

My husband and I recently spent 1 night at Ecce as part of a trip down memory lane in the Catskills. We are so happy we took other reviews into consideration and booked Ecce - the stay was comfortable, warm, welcoming and truly beyond expectations (we generally stay at hotels but have tried at least a dozen B&Bs so we have some points of comparison). For starters, Alan and Kurt have great taste - the place was beautifully decorated with artwork by local artists (some of which is available for purchase) but still felt welcoming and comfortable. My husband was also happy with the complimentary liquor which is left out in case someone wants a nightcap over a book. Alan and Kurt also host guests daily for cocktails+apps at around 5:30 - we spent a nice chunk of time talking with them about all sorts of things before heading out to dinner. As a bonus, Kurt is a great cook - your breakfast order is taken the evening before and comes out absolutely impeccable (like you're at a restaurant - I tried the eggs in the clouds, which were delicious!). The entire experience was heads above other B&Bs, much less that of a generic hotel - I can't recommend this B&B enough. We look forward to an excuse to be up in the Barryville area just so we can stay at Ecce again!

Room Tip: The Sunset 1 and the Ridge are the less expensive options but we found the Sunset 1 to be lovely. Th...

This was our third visit to Ecce, in celebration of our anniversary. Each time gets better and better. Alan and Kurt welcomed us with open arms and warm smiles and provided a wonderful getaway of laughter and respite. The food is phenomenal- that's actually an understatement for the 'eggs in a cloud' and the 'monkey bread'. The house is so cozy and inviting- it's always tough to leave after the weekend. I look forward to staying at Ecce for years to come. It is truly a gem. Thank you to Alan and Kurt for another fabulous memory.

Words cannot describe the true beauty that is ECCE. If you are looking for a place to getaway in order to unwind and relax, ECCE is the place to go. The views are spectacular, the ambiance is perfect, the food is to die for, all that you want and more goes into this bed and breakfast. Kurt and Alan truly love what they do, and you can see it in every detail and hard work they put in. They really go above and beyond to get to know you and make sure your stay is nothing less than perfect. After a rough week of work and graduate school we were lucky enough to escape to serenity that ECCE provides. We enjoyed a fun scavenger hunt on the trails that ended with a beautiful sunset. The meet and greet hour they provide was so fun, we got to meet and mingle with the other guest while enjoying delicious hor'dourves. We awoke to a cloudy overcast morning and honestly it was still as amazing to be on level with the clouds. It was a weekend we will never forget, we did not want to leave and are anticipating we will be back very soon!

my second visit to Ecce - how lucky am I - very!! my first visit was in the Spring - unfortunately my busy summer kept me from returning to Ecce until early fall - the view is postcard perfect -the rooms are out of a magazine - the art work and history is wonderful. Oh and the flowers and the sculptures are beauteous !
I love to just read and rest on the hammock or the lounge chair! There is lots to do in the area as well.
All this makes Ecce great however, what makes it excellent - that would be the hosts we have never experienced such warmth Alan and Kurt are truly wonderful!
To see people love what they are doing is what makes the visit extra special - whatever is going on at Ecce they are never to busy to stop everything and take care of the guests! Cocktails and the best apps inside or out and meeting the other guests and chatting & laughing with Alan & Kurt is my favorite time. Again, I have been to many B&Bs in the states and Europe I have never had such personalized attention let alone the best breakfast ever served! Everything at Ecce is done with love!! Cannot wait to go back - fingers crossed for a mild winter so we can head up for a visit - Queen b
