This is the kinda place kids take their parents to -- lots of families here and I don't think you'd call this a honeymooners kinda place. Staff were very accommodating; we wanted to visit the mountaintop when there was no tour planned and the front desk and activities desk personnel made it happen for us. Food was spotty -- some of it is excellent and some pretty lousy, but food overall is good enough. Rooms in the main lodge were very nice; the bathrooms were a bit small, especially considering we had what they call a minisuite. Lots of activities; the saturday night elimination dance and grand march was a hoot that we will have to make our kids stay up for next time. Our little kids loved this place and enjoyed all kinds of activities during the weekend such as chalk drawing, minigolf, kitchen class, and bubble blowing; the grounds are fairly compact and it is the kind of place you can have your kids run a bit away from you and not worry about it. Very nice scenic walk to a pretty waterfall that is stroller friendly. Not hard to get a family photo taken by a resident photographer. This place has pros and cons over the Mohonk Lodge, a similar property in upstate NY. But remember that although the Mohonk's food is better and the entertainment is more varied, it also costs a good deal more. Mosquitoes are a problem here when it gets warm. This place offers great value for money, is 1:45 drive from Manhattan and its compactness is a plus. Right now the hotel is less busy than normal due to the economy and they are giving out great discounts. Take advantage of the offers.
