My wife and I moved here from Brooklyn six years ago to manage Deer Mountain Inn and now we're working to put Catskill Mountain Lodge on the map. We are a year-round lodge set on the banks of the famed Kaaterskill Creek with spacious, comfortable rooms, and three cabins. Close to Hunter & Windham Ski resorts, Woodstock, Saugerties and Horse Shows in the Sun. Join us in the courtyard at our full bar and Off Track Betting inside.

Came to stay for a ski weekend at Hunter for the holiday weekend and enjoyed our double queen room in the lodge. Liked the vibe of this resort. Very pleased with the staff and accommodations—will be back!!

Hotel's Favourite
I was pleasantly supplied by this wonderful place. I was expecting it to be more rundown for some reason but the place was very nice. Nice large room with nice, hip touches like the orange shower curtain and wonderful breakfast. Super outdoor space for hanging out during the day or at night, along with outdoor bar. Great pool, and large property to walk around and explore. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Very close to beautiful scenery, hikes, Kaaterskill Falls and more.

We ended up booking the Catskills Mountain Lodge because we were taking an unplanned quick trip up to the Catskills and this was one of the only options. This place totally blew away our expectations. It's charming and the rooms are clean. The staff were incredibly friendly and it was a super easy check in experience. We got there pretty late but the little outdoor bar was still serving beers, wines and signature cocktails. we grabbed a few and sat around one of the fire pits that was going. It was perfect. The coffee and breakfast service in the morning was also nice. Good coffee and easy to check out. Definitely will be coming back here.

The location and grounds are lovely, but the property itself is undergoing major renovations. The owners, a couple with a young child, purchased the place 6 months ago. The pool hasn't been given the health department approval and is not open. The room I was given was stinky with mold, and felt damp. The window of the room was painted shut. I asked to move. Why come to the Catskills and not have access to fresh air? The next room was also stinky and mildewy, with ripped carpet. The carpet in the long hallway to my room was also rough. The deadbolt was not properly attached, and I slept with my suitcase against the door. The room had a sliding glass door, so I could air out the room. but didn't have a screen. The room's furnishings and decor were super marginal. The advertising for the lodge is super misleading. There is no restaurant on the premises, they provide "breakfast":bagels and packaged oatmeal with coffee and tea in the mornings, and a have a mini-fridge with some packaged snacks for sale. From Wednesday to Sunday there is and bar and food truck, but what I had was not great–mushy onion rings and an okay Impossible Burger. I didn't feel unsafe but it sure wasn't a relaxing getaway. I wish I had known it wasn't really ready to host guests, since I only had 2 nights at the property I sucked it up and stayed. The owners seem in over their head and their trendy concept isn't enough to make up for this unfinished property with it's poor workmanship.

Thanks for your feedback, Julia. I'm sorry we failed to meet your expectations. I assure you we are working every day to make improvements. I can't deny that we're over our heads, but if you had let us know you were unhappy with anything we'd have persisted until you were pleased with your stay. We'd like to keep the keep the rates low in the old motel building so that people who only want to spend $120 on a hotel room can still experience the Catskills so we're working on a tight budget but we're still upgrading the rooms as fast as we can. I hope you'll come back and give us another shot soon!

This charming lodge has been serving families and travelers for decades. After some years of decline, new owners have been reinvigorating the site with a '70s retro-cool aesthetic. Clean rooms, fresh paint, and a friendly, attentive staff are making a big difference. Some of the furnishings could still use refurbishing or replacing. On our visit, we could see they were installing a vintage malm fireplace in the lobby. We also had the pleasure to meet fellow travelers around the fire pit, most of whom were returning guests. I also found out on our return, that we have friends who remember frequenting this place back in the day. If we find ourselves back this way again, we would love to make another visit. They seem to be in the process of redoing the bar/restaurant, so no review on that - but looks very cozy
