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.
