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!!

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.


great place to stay

Good stay


Nice B&B

4.0 on July 22, 2014

Older very large building. Lots of creaks in flooring as expected in older wooden structures, but no issues to us. We slept very well. Has distinct German feel all. Certainly not like a new Hilton/Hampton experience, but you won't find those chains in this outlying country. Many similar and smaller B&B's dotted throughout the area, this worked out well for our Grey Fox festival travels. Breakfast was stellar.


Country Hideaway

4.2 on June 23, 2014

We stayed for 4 days in the Catskill region and had a blast. We took day trips using this hotel as our "home based". Our room was small, bed comfortable, bathroom updated and clean. The staff friendly especially the owner. The food was outstanding even better than other hotels that I've been to. It is remarkable that they have survived for 143 years in continuous operation. They must be doing something right.


Genealogy Trip to the Catskills

I wanted to stay there because my 2nd great grandfather built it in 1867+-. Susanne & Stan were very friendly and the rooms were impeccable..very clean & well maintained. Beatiful area. Food was terrific as well. Temps in late May are wonderful..nice & cool. Hope to visit again someday in the future.

Lovely and Cozy Inn

4.2 on April 16, 2014

We shared a weekend at the Bavarian Manor with a group of friends and had a terrific time. The porch was beautiful and set a relaxing tone for hanging out and enjoying the sunshine. Suzanne at the front desk gave us (and our dog) a very warm welcome and made herself available to take care of all of our needs/desires. The meals we experienced in the dining room were delicious and the service was great. The rooms could use a little love (our door was falling apart and the ceiling was a bit droopy) but it was comfortable and clean. We loved the authentic German charm. We'll be back some day!
