About

Voted one of three finalists by the New York State Hospitality & Tourism Associations "Bed & Breakfast of Distinction" 2007 & 2008. Our rooms are, as our guests have said..."so lovely, unexpected. I love how each room is different." "We feel right at home here." All our rooms have own private bath, cable TV, a/c, in-room coffee makers. We have rooms with fireplaces and single deep jacuzzi tubs. An award-winning restaurant is on the premises, also serving as an extern teaching kitchen for the Culinary Arts of America. The restaurant serves German-American food, from classic German Scnitzel to steaks and seafood dishes. We're open all year and hold theme weekends throughout. Home of the Original German Alps Festival. We are small and flexible and offer some of the best views in the Catskills such as our 40-mile view of Massachusett's Berkshire Mountains to the East from our very best rooms. Over 100 acres with 6 acre lake and trails. Close to hiking, golfing and the ski slopes of the Catskill Mountains as well as Woodstock, Cooperstown, and Howe Caverns.

Our 2014 Thanksgiving Stay

5 on December 02, 2014

We had stayed there before and when my kids had to go to their inlaws this Thanksgiving, I thought it would be a great idea to attend the Thanksgiving feast at the Inn. My wife would not have to cook and could enjoy herself and we both had a terrific time. The food was fresh and delicious and the help wonderful and very accommodating.

Germany in the Catskills

4.4 on November 25, 2014

We celebrated my 71st birthday with a three night stay in The Bavarian Manor Country Inn. Everyone there was warm and friendly, going out of their way to make our stay comfy and interesting and worthy of returning. AND THE FOOD!!! Wonderful! Shades of our youth when we were fortunate enough to live in Germany for a few years. We will return! Thank you, everyone at The Bavarian Manor! Thank you!


Great time

Our stay in room 37

5 on October 27, 2014

We spent 2 nights (a Wednesday and Thursday night) at Bavarian Manor in room 37. It rained the majority time we were there but even then it was absolutely perfect. The staff was so friendly and made every effort to make our stay memorable. Lynn at the bar was very friendly as well as her morning counterpart. Wednesday night was a slower night and the Inns restaurant was closed but we ventured to an amazing BBQ restaurant that just opened the next town over by Hunter Mtn (highly recommend the scenic route, gorgeous waterfalls). The Inn restaurant on Thursday night did NOT disappoint either! Amazing food with generous portions. Cannot recommend this B&B enough. Plus they allow pets!!! :)


Cosy Catskill getaway

3.6 on October 24, 2014

We've stayed at the Bavarian Manor a couple of times. We always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the historic setting. The owners are so nice and welcoming. The building is absolutely charming, with small but cosy rooms, homey accents, some with lake views. We have stayed in the Turret Room, which is larger than most, and has a little table and chairs in the turret itself. So cool! On our most recent stay we had a fireplace, very handy for those cool fall nights. The historic photos and framed correspondence from long ago from former guests are fascinating. We also especially liked the collection of devil's fiddles in the dining room. Breakfast is delicious, and prepared to order. Dinner is a special treat, if your stay is during the open hours. Try the schnitzel. It's well-known as one of the best in the area. Other than the dining room here, though, it's a little drive to find other restaurants. Hudson is a bit of a hike, but there are lots of good options there. Catskill and Palenville, or Windham are other choices. This location in the Catskills is a great jumping-off point for some lovely hikes in the mountains and to the nearby waterfall.


Oktoberfest at Bavarian Manor

4.0 on October 22, 2014

My wife and I just got back from a 2 night stay at the Bavarian Manor. The room was a little small but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very small. We stumbled upon a WW II battle re-anactment nearby which was great. However the best part of our stay was the food at the Bavarian Manor restaurant. It was by far the best German food we have ever had. The bar was excellent as well. We will be back next October.


Bavarian Manor --Twice As Nice!

3.2 on October 07, 2014

I had the very pleasant experience of staying at the Bavarian Manor Country Inn and Restaurant twice -- in early July, and again with spouse, in September (2014). Charming, cozy, imbued with tremendous history, and managed by highly dedicated, cordial, and very caring, unassuming professionals. Each room possesses simple 'vintage' elegance, warmth, comfort, and furnishings which any "seasoned" B&B guest would relish. The spacious, verdant outdoors/grounds surrounding the Inn are just as inviting, including the wrap-around veranda where one finds solace and relaxation, reading a book or sipping on a beverage prepared by Lynne, "bartender par excellence." Suzanne and Stan, the Manor hosts, are thoughtful and welcoming in their gracious and efficient management of the Inn. Hats off to Stan, Executive Chef, for fabulous (and varied) dinner specialties -- served by friendly staff in a sumptuously colorful dining room, oozing with friendliness, character, and "good-time" ambiance. Breakfast in the Inn is always a delectable and "wholesome" way to start off the day (a range of menu items) served with grace and hospitality by the exceptionally spry (and humorously mild-mannered) Ellen, a superb breakfast hostess. The reception desk staff, Nancy, and newest member Kaitlyn, along with housekeepers Peggy and Nancy, are a perfect "welcoming committee" with cheery smiles and a helpful hand. An added pleasantry of staying at the Bavarian Manor are the "walkable" paths and country roads to nearby landmarks and "refuges." Further down or up the roads are other scenic destinations/attractions which have likely drawn people to this wonderful "Catskill Area" setting for decades. Wishing a quaint and restful weekend getaway,? Or several days of exploring the "historic" and scenically-blessed Upstate New York region "ala Adirondacks"? Visit the Bavarian, for an enjoyable and memorable respite from hectic urban living.


It is what it is!!

3.4 on October 07, 2014

The Ritz Carlton it's not but it doesn't claim to be. It is a bit run down and smells old and a little musty but it is relaxing, very reasonably priced and in a great location if you want to visit some interesting little towns like Saugerties and Woodstock. The rooms are small and the bed clothes could use an update but in general the room is clean. You begin your day with a very delicious and hearty breakfast and after a day of sightseeing it is nice to return to the lovely restaurant that serves great food. The staff is very helpful and friendly and their hospitality and the cost make up for shabby but not chic setting.
