The nicest "home" feeling B&B we have ever stayed at. We spent many a years at Lazy Pond in the summer time as our son was in camp not far away. The owners Jean & Don always worked with us whether our daughter was coming or my in-laws from Florida. We watched Lazy Pond grow over the years !

Our stay at Lazy Pond was terrific! The weather was cool and a bit rainy but the rooms were very cozy and having breakfast on the porch made for a perfect weekend morning. The Bethel Woods performance center is not to be missed and this Inn is the perfect place to stay. Don and Jean Tulp are wonderful hosts, baking fresh cookies all day long, and their son Matt will make you fresh farm eggs any way you like them!

Jean, Don & Matt made our stay worry free and provided a Very clean well kept cabin, immaculate grounds and the most excellant breakfast one could ask for. I recommend Lazy pond for all and I look farward to my next stay. Ten Stars.

Perfect Getaway

First, the bad part. We had four people in a room. The room, however, was very very small. We didn't even have a place to put our suitcases on the floor. Also, our room faced onto a tool shed. We didn't see any other rooms, but they may have been bigger/nicer. The room was clean. The beds had pillow tops (not our favorite). The worst part about the room was that it didn't have internet service. Since the hotel advertised internet service, we were very disappointed. When we asked, we were told that we could use the patio by the kitchen which, although nice, did not suit my purpose of private communications. On the other hand, the setting was beautiful. Jeanne was very nice. And we had a lovely time. The breakfasts were fine (my husband says that they browned the eggs, but I like them that way). We were thrilled when the had chocolate chips for my children's pancakes. All in all, we would definitely return.

Sublime weekend

My husband attended Woodstock 40+ years ago and wanted to revisit the area. We had been planning this getaway for months and couldn't have picked a better time and accommodations. The weather was perfect and upon arrival at Lazy Pond, we were warmly welcomed despite the late hour. Jean was a wonderful hostess, as was her husband. Breakfast was great and the conversation even better. Our room was spotless and the grounds beautiful and pristine. We hope to return in the summer and would recommend Lazy Pond to anyone who wants a pleasant time spent in the Catskills.

We had a wonderful "Woodstock" holiday at Lazy Pond. Jean was so kind and helpful and made us so very welcome. The accomodation was 5star and the breakfasts excellent. Highly recommend. Geoff & Lina. (UK).

Heaven on earth...

So happy to have had the experience of staying at the wonderful Lazy Pond B&B. Our hosts, Jeanne and Don, attended to our every need. Our accommodations were immaculate, our breakfasts delicious and filling, and the conversation warm and inviting. The four days and three nights went by much too quickly. We hope we can return very soon!!

Lazy Pond, a little lazy

The setting was lovely, the room quite nice. It wasn't inexpensive, and when we said we needed to leave early, earlier than breakfast was served, they didn't offer much. We had paid for a bed and breakfast, but all we got was an offer of a bowl of cereal. Not very much for the money. Having said that, we would go back. Other than this glitch, the proprietors were quite nice and the setting also. I hope they will make more of an effort meeting individual needs in the future. I do recommend the Lazy Pond B and B to anyone visiting the are.
