“Beautiful, But.....”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

BVI is a beautiful, serene Inn. If your looking for a place to leave the world behind, this is it. The rooms have no telephone or tvs so relaxation abounds. During my stay I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The two women that work the front desk (Lisa & Yvonne) were wonderful. They helped my husband obtain his fishing license so he could try his hand in the famous Beaverkill river. We were able to eat a delicious dinner outside on the deck at sunset while the deer grazed in the field at the end of the yard. The Chef (Adam) is definately talented. The facilities include an indoor pool, a self serve ice cream parlor, tennis courts and hiking trails.) However wonderful BVI is, there is a downside--THE MEMBERS! They treat the guests as outsiders and the staff like their personal assistants! They seem to take pleasure in making guests feel unwelcome. This is not a good business pratice especially since the rates are so expensive. They should be grateful that people are willing to pay the price they ask. If they feel that we are intruding they should make the Inn their exclusive club. Another downside is that the members children have free reign of the Inn & grounds. Guests are unable to use the pool or the tennis courts while the childrens camp is in effect. With that being said, I would recommend staying at BVI. But during the "off season"!

Sometimes the Inn does seem really busy with guests and members, however, they are all happy people who are having a good time! We hope that you will come back during the week, you would have us all to yourselves.

We spent the weekend here when visiting my oldest son at camp. It was well suited for us as it has great food and the athletic facilities were superb. My youngest child was quite happy swimming in the indoor pool, helping himself to ice cream and playing in the gym. The staff is very accomodating without being intrusive. The grounds are lovely as well. On the downside there is no cell service, no phones in the rooms and spotty wifi. The rooms are very small and were a bit cramped. The public areas were quite comfortable and there were very few people there so it felt quite private.

BVI is definitely a place I would recommend to others. The grounds are spectacular, the staff is wonderful and kind and the setting allows you to escape the worries of the city. Unfortunately, most of the members who now own the place obviously do not want guest there or to use their facilities. It was made clear that they own the club house and guest could use it when they were not. It was uncomfortable to watch how the members treated the staff. I would recommend going mid week or not during the summer so you can avoid the members. The food was good and worth paying extra to have all the meals there. You can even get your lunch to go so you can enjoy it on a beautiful hike or just sitting by the river. I hope the members decide soon if they want to be hosts or masters so this cute hideaway can keep its charm. And yes, the fly fishing is incredible!

As an avid fly fisherman and nature lover, this surprisingly well-appointed gem's effortless comfort was matched only by the staff's warm-hearted service and attentiveness. I have to say that my expectations were modest coming from the city and having grown up in excellent flyfishing country in central Pennsylvania. But I was blown away. Not only was the fishing superb, the facilities were super family friendly with an indoor pool, tennis courts, and lovely trail. The food was a really pleasant surprise. Very fresh and delicious for every meal! The girls in the kitchen were so nice! The only thing that could detract from the experience is overcrowding I suppose. We went on a very quiet weekend with my 3 year old son.

We felt right at home from the second we got there. We will definitely be back!

I was recommended to this Inn by the Wulff Fly Fishing School nearby, it was the loveliest place, full of charm and comfort. The staff was so helpful when I had any issue, the food just amazing. You just can't go wrong staying here. The beds are very comfortable and a serene setting. They just remodeled the downstairs, it's well done, and so beautiful. I wish I could have stayed longer!
If you want to have meals offsite there are a few options in Roscoe and L. Manor.

Room Tip: Get a room with an air conditioner if needed in warmer temps.

We always look forward to our stays at BVI. The Inn is cozy and comfortable, the staff is friendly, helpfull, and always remembers us by name. We love the 19th century feel of the Hotel and grounds, and the kitchen puts delicious meals on the table. Best of all, I get to fish some of the finest water in the Catskills while she relaxes with her books and WiFi. Peace, quiet, good food and fishing; what could be better!

we found this place through friends. It was better than they told us. The Inn has an old time flavor that is hard to find these days. We talked to some local homeowners at the bar and they were very helpful in describing local places to visit. We heard that they had plans to "modernize" it. We hope they don't ruin the atmosphere that makes it very special.
