“Stayed only two nights, wished it had been longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2011

We stayed only two nights at The Post Cottage, but we wished it had been longer. The innkeepers were welcoming and very informative and helpful – Gilbert produced a tide chart when he heard that we were interested in kayaking, gave us directions to go hiking and pointed us towards good restaurants in the area. The accommodations were good, not over-stuffed and cutesy but large bedrooms, well-furnished and comfortable. The breakfast was spectacular both days, the usual fruit salad and croissant followed by a delicious entrée presented beautifully in an elegant dining room. Then when we returned from a full day exploring the area, there was key lime pie (Susan’s favorite) waiting. Catskill the town is well worth a stroll up and down the main street, it’s a town that re-invented itself a few years back and has a lot of interesting architecture, some neat shops, a warehouse converted to a museum of the town’s history as a Hudson River port, galleries and a couple of good places to eat out. Catskill the region is an outdoor paradise, for kayaking, hiking, biking or just strolling. We had a delightful stay – highly recommended.

The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful and the proprietors were very nice.

I was actually on a business trip with an associate in Catskill. This was the only place to stay in Catskill and it was just unbelievable. When we arrived there was white wine and cookies. Upon our return from dinner there was port wine and dessert. We stayed downstairs and played scrabble drinking port. Then the breakfast the next morning was one of the best I have ever had. Period. Not mention the rooms were truly luxurious. I will stay here everytime I am in Catskill for business or pleasure. Thanks to Gil and Mary Ann for a great visit!

This is a lovely, low key B&B. We would definitely return and next time bring some friends with us too! Here are the highlights:

- This place is newly opened, so the interiors are updated and impeccable. All of the small details are great, like nice bathroom fixtures, fluffy towels, and Cable TV in your room.

- They provide a shared fridge with water, soda, tea, glasses and a corkscrew for BYO.

- I personally think the decor is lovely - it's tasteful-traditional, but with modern amenities. Perfect for a B & B.

- The Food is outstanding! They are very gourmet - local artisan cheese, crudite and wine for happy hour. Decadent home made desserts at the end of the night and of course awesome breakfast! It's true, they offer fish for breakfast. I had the pork one morning, which was tender and juicy and seasoned to perfection.

- They also have a tennis court, a mini-pool table, board games, DVD's...

- Lastly, Gil and Mary Ann are great. Everyone likes a different style when it comes to B & B's - I personally liked Gil and Mary Ann's style. They are friendly and interesting and willing socialize/hang out. BUT, they were also sensitive to when you needed some time to your self. They have the right mix of friendly, but not dominating.

Room Tip: Photos on their website are pretty good representation of what you get.

Probably the best B&B we've ever stayed in. Beautiful early 19th century house, restored with all first-class amenities. The house is filled with pretty (i.e., not merely old) antique furniture, carpets, and art. Our room was enormous and, like the rest of the house, very comfortable. The gracious hosts aim to please. They prepared a delicious (huge) breakfast, provided afternoon and after-dinner treats, and information. Go!

In a cute neighborhood Gil and Maryann treated us like royalty with excellent food, wine, dessert, breakfast, ooooh we were truly pampered. We only could stay two nights, but we were in the Southern Room which was quite beautiful. Beautiful large bed, large bathroom, jacuzzi, everything was perfect. We cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent I'm sure!

The common areas of the house and the rooms at the Post Cottage are spacious, tastefully decorated, and best of all, spotless! All the guest rooms have been renovated and each has a beautiful, private bath. Our room also had a fireplace, which we did not use. Guests have access to a small refrigerator, free beverages and glassware, which is located in a small common area near the guest rooms. Upon arrival, we were greeted with warm cookies, followed by wine and h'or deuves at 5p and a luscious chocolate tart with port awaited our return from dinner. The beds were a tad too firm for our taste, but, we still slept well. We thought the breakfast we ordered the night before was what would be on the table in the morning, and it was, but it was accompanied by a bowl of fresh berries and other fresh fruits, an assortment of breakfast breads, juices and hot beverages. Our Sweet Potato Pancakes were to die for and I'm still trying to dulpicate the recipe. Our hosts, Gil and Mary Ann were gracious and very accomodating during stay by getting a room ready for us on a moments notice and providing us with an ice bucket filled with ice. We would gladly return here again!
