Reviewed July 29, 2013

Place is really cozy. It was a home away from home. Hospitality of Kellee and Mike was fabulous. They served delicious breakfast. We got free upgraded room with Panaromic view and that was the highlight of our trip. We give 7 stars.

I stayed at this beautiful b&b with my fiancé during our weekend away in the mountains. If you are looking for something that will get you away from things, is quiet and peaceful, but is also within driving distance to hiking trails and restaurants – this is a perfect choice!

Mike and Kellee, the couple that run the place, are two truly lovely people. I always worry when going to b&b’s because it feels like you are intruding in someone else’s home, but they really give you space and are only around for breakfast and room cleaning. When we arrived, no one was there but they had left a welcome package for us which explained everything that we needed to know. Personally I thought this was better because we could look around and get a feel for the place and feel as though we had the freedom to do so.

The couple are so kind and welcoming and really make you feel that you are the most important people in the world. They remember your names and remember everything that you speak with them about – they are so eager to help with anything that you could want and always very smiley and happy. One thing we really picked up on was the connection that they have with the place – they really love and believe in it and it shows in everything that they do. They strive to get you to see what they see in the place and they do a great job! They have not been inn keeping here for very long – but you would never know it. It seems that they have such a history with the place and you really see their personality in it.

We stayed in The Delaware room which was on the 1st floor. To get to it you have to go through the kitchen – but it has its own door to the back car park which was lovely for privacy. If you are coming to do outdoor activities such as hiking or skiing or something like that – it would be a good room to choose because you don’t have to traipse through the house to get to your room. There is a fireplace in the room so winters would be lovely there.

One huge benefit was the hot tub – it was pure luxury being able to come back and have a cold beer in the hot tub before retiring to bed! And if you go in when the sun is going down, the view is beautiful! They have an entrance area with hot tub towels and it is all very easy to do without assistance – there are hooks for towels and a lever contraption that makes taking the cover off very easy!

Another wonderful thing about the place is the breakfasts! Mike makes them and he is a very skilled man – they do different things every day but we had pancakes and eggs and sausage which was beautifully cooked. The b&b attracts lovely people - so the conversation over breakfast was really great – you get to meet people from different walks of life and all very friendly and keen to have a good chat!

The common area in the house is decorated so beautifully that I can really imagine spending hours upon hours there reading or writing – I would imagine that it would be a great place to go if you are by yourself and want a relaxing weekend or retreat to clear your head, or if you are a couple that want to spend some quality time together playing board games on the porch.
I wouldn’t recommend bringing young children here, because it has such a calming feel to it I feel that they would not respond well to it. However, if you are a couple or on your own and want to visit the area or if you are looking for a getaway to clear your head and relax – I would seriously recommend this place.
I honestly couldnt fault it - it was so clean and comfy with beautiful surroundings, good food and lovely people. What more could you ask for?!

I know that you will enjoy it – I am already dreaming about going back!

Kelle & Mike are an amazing duo that run this beautiful B&B this place is absolutely amazing. The home is filled with many antiques that take you back to time. The room my husband and I stayed was the Wyndham on the first floor which has its on bathroom. The daily breakfast was delicious specially the lemon blueberry pancakes.

If you are looking to unwind this is the place !!! We loved it so much that we are making plans to return as I am typing this review!

Room Tip: If you do not want to share the bathroom with other guest you may want to stay in the Wyndham room o...

I started staying at the Catskill Lodge in '10. I attended a great bluegrass festival that is about a 20 minute drive from Windham over some of the most amazing scerery and panoramic views of the Catskills. It was ok, but could definitely been improved. Then last year Kellee and Mike took over the management of the Inn. What a difference!!! They are so welcoming and friendly. The place is spotless, and breakfasts were all great (I stay 3 nights). I will be back!!

Being that we were unable to drive up to the Lodge, it was super convenient to be able to take a Trailways bus and have it drop us off several yards away. As soon as we arrived, Kellee (the innkeeper) greeted us warmly at the door, and helped us settle into this cozy B&B with a tour and hand drawn maps to help us get around town.

We stayed in the Esopus, a cute and cozy room on the second floor, which overlooks the backyard. The bed was comfy, and the quilts were definitely a nice touch.Throughout our stay, Kellee and Mike were hospitable, generous (especially with directions to sightseeing and activities), as well as kind. Not only was our trip enjoyable because of the innkeepers, but also the Lodge's other pleasant guests. Also, Mike's breakfast is spot on, and very homey. We will definitely return.

My wife and I stayed at the Catskill Lodge Bed and Breakfast for our honeymoon at the end of May into the beginning of June in 2012. We were able to stay for five days in the Catskill Suite, which is on the third floor. The suite is comprised of two bedrooms at each end of a hallway, one with a king-sized bed and sitting room off to the side and the other has two twin beds, and a bathroom with a shower and jacuzzi tub in between. The room was perfect for a honeymoon.

Each morning we enjoyed a delicious meal each morning and enjoyed visiting with the other guests, who were from places as diverse as Australia, Denmark, NYC, and Pennsylvania. Our hosts, Kellie and Mike, were always willing to give helpful suggestions for the day, with everything from restaurants to activities. Upon our arrival they gave us a sheet with the local hiking trails and helped us arrange a horseback-riding outing. While there are a few restaurants in town (including a delicious Italian place within walking distance), it can a be a fifteen to twenty minute ride to the next town.

In the evening there are plenty of DVDs to choose from or a book to read, and most of the house is available to sit and relax. Since we had the suite we took advantage of the jacuzzi most nights. Since this is a green property there isn't an AC unit in the room, but by opening the windows and using the fan there was nice cross-breeze.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day soon. If you are looking for a quiet stay away from the hustle and bustle of life then you can't go wrong with the Catskill Lodge.

Room Tip: Catskill Suite takes up the entire third floor

We are so glad that you enjoyed your honeymoon getaway here with us a year ago. We are happy that we were able to provide you a peaceful and quiet atmosphere for your special occasion, and that you enjoyed exploring the area . . . from our little town of Windham less than 5 minutes away to numerous other towns within a 10 to 45 minute drive.

As an update - though we still try to be as "green" as we can, we do install A/C units in each of the rooms during the summer months. The unit in your room last year was installed in mid-June, a couple of weeks after you were here. Guests have the option of using their A/C, or feeling the lovely mountain breeze flowing in through open windows.

My bf and I went to hunter mountain to zipline. We had a great time then were exhausted. Checked into the b and breakfast was very beautiful old Victorian home. Also very quiet. We packed up and were greeted by the very welcoming inn keepers. We were there for a short visit but highly would recommend they were very sweet to us :)
