18 Bedroom Victorian Inn in continuous operation since 1865. Owned by the same family for three generations. 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. We offer therapeutic massage by appointment. We're simple, uncomplicated and friendly...That's our style!

Great value

4.0 on March 04, 2018

The rooms are simple with some dated decor (drop ceilings, etc.) but clean and comfortable. It wasn't loud at night and everyone was friendly. Great breakfast!

My fiance and my second year going to Bavarian manor.old building very quint food was very good service good very friendly people.i would recommend for people who like that old world feel.if your expecting a Hilton it is the wrong place for you. Check out the Peekamoose Restaurant about 45 min drive but well worth it.

Stan and his "family of Inn-keeping employees" made us feel at home once again at this lovely, quaint Inn ! New Years' was our third overnight stay and we were very pleased with the accommodations, delicious home cooked meals and holiday decor ! The DJ played great dance music to ring in the New Year ! I even danced with my wife and mother-in-law ! ;)

Lovely quaint visit to the Catskills area. Friday night rehearsal dinner for my nieces wedding. The food was excellent, the service was awesome. Breakfast each morning is a full service breakfast and was wonderful. The 100 acre old world Inn was a pleasure to visit! Cathy L

Room 50 was PERFECT for my family. There is a separate room for the kids with their own TV which was very helpful also. The food is DELISH!! Suzanne, the owner is very personable and the staff in general was great. Cocktails on the huge porch is the perfect way to relax.
