Our hosts were lovely, breakfasts were hearty and delicious, and the inn itself and its rooms were charming and rustic. It was convenient to the nature walks, shopping, and sightseeing we wanted to do. Accommodations are not deluxe, but they did the trick.

We decided to celebrate my retirement with a long weekend in upstate New York. The VanWinkle Inn started the weekend off perfectly. Holly and Bert are great innkeepers, down to the last detail. We arrived after hours and found instructions and information that made us feel right at home. The inn is so comfortable, with period furniture that sets off this historic house and an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming. Holly's breakfast - oh, my goodness, so delicious! Everything was perfect including the location - in the Catskills, around the corner from Vince Anna's, one of the best restaurants we have ever experienced. A perfect experience!
Such kind words. We can not thank you enough for choosing our little corner of the world to celebrate your special occasion! We truly do strive to ensure all our guests have a wonderful time when visiting our home....and want you to feel at home. We hope that you will visit again in the near future :) Oh yes! VinceNnes's....a must when visiting.

The inn was positively charming. The owners went above and beyond our needs. We frequently stay at B&Bs but this far exceeded any we have been at.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Van Winkle Inn. The innkeepers were so much fun and really took great care of us. Food was great. Great location. We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks so much for staying with us! It is just great when we have guests that have such kind words to share. It reminds us why it is that we decided to open our Inn.

Beds are very comfortable, Inn is beautiful and comfortable, hosts are welcoming and helpful with accomodating personal needs. I would only suggest uploading pictures of all the suites/rooms online - though they were all very nice.

This little B&B was a little further from Windham Mountain than I hoped. If if were a little closer I would stay there every time. The rooms, staff and atmosphere could not have been nicer. I am a very picky traveler and typically stay at high end hotels. This little B&B was the complete opposite and completely perfect! We has the Inn to ourselves and the owners gave us a second room instead of providing a roll away bed for my son. We were able to keep our doors open and have the room across the hall. It was like having a suite. The Inn keepers were wonderful at accommodating our gluten free diet. They even took my son on a little adventure through the secret passage ways. I could not have asked for more. An absolute gem!

Our stay at the VanWinkle Inn was wonderful! We stayed in the Lillian suite, which is a separate, private, large room off the main house, with a king bed and a private porch. It was beautifully appointed and clean. The place is out of the way and quiet, exactly what us frazzled people needed. The grounds are pretty, and patrolled by a friendly cat. TV and internet, for those who need it. There is good coffee available in the main house 24/7, so those of us like me, who tend to wake up around 6 and go prowling for caffeine, are able to get our initial fix without driving around looking for 7-11's. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful, cooked and served by the hosts in the dining room of the main house. The hosts are friendly and personable, without being intrusive. Hudson and Albany are both within easy driving distance, as well as many regional attractions. We visited with some friends in Troy one day, and Olana the other, and had good dinners at the local restaurants. All in all, a fantastic, relaxing, and rejuvenating place for those who wish to get away to a pretty and quiet place for a weekend. We will be back...

This was our first weekend at this magical inn. It's charm captured us the moment we drove up. The fresh country air flowing in from the mountains was only where our relaxation began. The Van Winkle Inn's charm begins on the old fashioned front porch where my boyfriend and I spent every morning enjoying our coffee for several hours! It wasn't our intention but it was SO relaxing! In the cool evenings we sat in the hot tub under the brightest stars with our glasses of wine. Our room had its own spacious bath, wide planked wood floors, and the most comfortable bed. The furnishings are all antiques which only added to the charm. The staff is very attentive to EVERY detail to make our stay inviting. We didn't want to leave and are already planning our next trip to this Inn. It's such a wonderfully romantic place! Thank you Van Winkle Inn! Mike and Robin
