“What a Great Place to Stay with Wonderful Staff”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Pleasantly Unexpected- we had another hotel reserved for our stay and it was under construction and so disastrous we didn't want to stay there, so we found this cute little place called Catskill Mountain Lodge. The owners and staff were so friendly and accommodating. They let us use their phone and They were able to get us a room on such short notice for 5 people. They helped us shuttle back and forth to the event we were visiting. The rooms were spacious, clean, plenty of hot water, comfortable and inviting lobby area. Breakfast options were available. Great affordable pricing. Walking Distance to bar. restauraunt( actually right next door with live music ) My friends and I just thought the owners were great people. We will definitely be back.

Thank you, Rachel, for taking the time to share your experiences at our hotel with others. We really enjoyed being in the company of you and your friends and are glad we were able to help you have a safe and memorable time while taking part in the TAP NY beer festival. There's nothing Kathy and I enjoy more than making new friends and you are terrific folks. We hope to see you again soon! Take care.

My friends from Long Island and I have stayed at the Catskill Mountain lodge for 3 years for our annual ski trip and I give the Catskill Mountain Lodge a great review. I've traveled a lot thus stayed at countless hotels and value a high-standard of accomodation and I love this place. The building and rooms are simple and comfortable, the staff are incredibly friendly and accomodating, and the ease-of-access to outdoor sports has made this hotel perfect for little weekend getaways. Also, it has a great price-point for people who want to stay somewhere nice without breaking the bank. I have stayed there a lot and it has been great every time!!!! Highly recommended.

Thanks,

Allie :)

Green Features: They make sure to ask you if you want to have fresh towels, they make sure to adjust the temperature to when rooms are being inhabited, they have thick warm curtains on the windows to keep out the draft, and the lights are soft and dim in the facility which probably uses less energy.

Thanks, Allie, for sharing your experience of the Lodge with others. Your experience is especially important as you have stayed with us for the past three ski seasons. You are in a pretty good position to know whether our service and accomodations are consistent or not. Once again, thanks for taking time to tell others about you stays with us.

What a lovely place!! Very beautiful and inviting lobby. Huge chandelier made of antique wood. Four of us stayed here in one of their huge 2 queen bed rooms at a bargain price, too. The place reminded us of the Overlook Hotel from the Shining! So much character. The gameroom, too. In our room there was a balcony and huge windows that look out to the forest. It was a pleasure to meet Al and Cathy (the owners), and Lillian (the bartender). (Good luck with that criminal justice degree, Lily!) In the evening, Al even plays the saxophone for the guests. We will definitely be coming back. We could have used more cups for our room. It's also located really close to Kaaterskill Falls. We walked there and went up to the waterfall.

Bruce, we thank you for telling others about your time at the Lodge and about your visit to nearby Kaaterskill Falls. It is the highest cascading waterfall in the Eastern United States and so beautiful it has been painted and photographed by many. We're glad you enjoyed the pub and the live Jazz at Kindred Spirits. Our Deluxe Rooms are larger than one might expect and can handle four adults comfortably. Sorry about the coffee mugs. We provide two per room. I'm sure if you had mentioned it, we would've gotten you a couple more. We look forward to seeing you again!

My boyfriend and I took a vacation at the beautiful lodge during a small break in January. As soon as we drove up to the front of the lodge we are greeted by beautiful scenery and the wonderful daughter of the owners. This lodge is a beautifully built establishment run by a wonderful family who just make you feel as if you are a part of the family! As soon as we checked in we headed upstairs and the room was absolutely perfect! I never felt like I was missing anything during my stay, but whenever I felt like I wanted something a little extra, the service was great. I never had to ask twice or wait too long which really made me feel like the staff cared about making my stay as comfortable as ever. Aside from the beautiful rooms, the scenery surrounding the lodge was breath taking. It's the perfect area to sit in silence with your loved one and just enjoy the moment. Right next to the lodge is also an amazing steak house, Kindred Spirits, also run by the family. During our stay we stopped by for dinner and it was one of the most inviting and delicious restaurant experiences I've ever had. Throughout my stay the owners were always around checking up on us to make sure we were happy with our accommodation and they even remembered our names, which was so important to us! We didn't feel just like any other clients but we felt like family! It was nice to see them around the lodge and just take some time to have a conversation and get to know one another. Not only were the staff and owners incredible, but the other individuals lodging during the time were so friendly as well! The establishment is really an extension and a reflection of the incredibly lovely and genuine owners of the lodge. I don't think I could have picked a more wonderful place to spend a cold winter weekend!! I'm looking forward to more peaceful, cozy and welcoming vacations in the near future!!!

Al and Kathy are lovely, friendly, intelligent hosts who provide a very comfortable nature-filled Lodge experience for parents and kids who want to ski at Hunter, visit Saugerties for dinner or shopping, or just take a respite from busy life away from it all. Some rooms are equipped with fireplaces, and close by is the amazing Circle W General Store for a great breakfast, delicious coffee, locally derived farm fresh ingredients, organic products, or amazing sandwiches prior to a busy ski day on the Mountain. Very reasonably priced for a two night stay. Always enjoyable.

Thank you, Erica, for taking time to share your experience with us. You and your family are wonderful guests and we are always happy to enjoy your company. Nature plays a large role at The Lodge as we are at the foot of Kaaterskill Clove and our property is on that famous creek. At any time our guests might see eagles or hawks, foxes, turkey, hummingbirds, skunks, black bear, deer, dragon flies, bats and many more creatures. The Lodge is a god place for people like you, who are looking to commune with nature. We look forward to your return.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel last Wednesday. We got a room with a fireplace and it was a lovely experience. The room was clean, well stocked and the fireplace gave it a romantic touch. We ate and had drinks at the hotel's restaurant, where we had amazing food and friendly conversations with hotel regulars and locals. The hotel was quiet, peaceful and serene, everything you would want for a romantic winter getaway. Hope to come back soon.

Thank you for choosing the Lodge for a romantic getaway. We're glad you enjoyed your fireplace room. Also, coming during the week when it's quieter, is a great idea for a couple who wants to share some solitude. The restaurant, as you noted, is a good place to mix with locals and have a decent meal and drinks. We are glad you had a good time and that you took a moment to share your experience with others. We look forward to seeing you again!
