The hotel was charming, had a welcoming and relaxed feel, Staff was attentive, friendly, interested. Really enjoyed the breakfast as we wrapped up our two-day stay in the HV. Only downside was couldn't get the room fridge to work..not sure if it was me or it, but small matter. Also appreciated the resto recommendations in area, turned out to be just what was wanted after a busy day of driving and touring artist's houses. Grounds looked lovely, wished we could have spent more time there with books and our thoughts.

Our recent stay at the Bavarian Manor Inn was truly delightful. As advertised, the room was charming and cozy. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the breakfast, served in a victorian style dining room was excellent. We highly recommend it.

Great Place

Staff wast very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were well equipped and clean. The Jacuzzi worked well. Breakfast was made to order from a decent menu. Dinner was outstanding. Wine and beer selection was very good. We even received a discounted room rate that we were not expected. The morning after we arrived the staff told us that the bill would be LESS expensive than we thought. The area was beautiful.

Hidden Classic Charm

4.2 on July 08, 2016

The Bavarian Manor brings the old style vacation resort charm of the Catskills into today’s world. The restaurant was exceptional for both breakfast and dinner selections, with Bavarian Fare and American classics alike. Grounds are a little dated, but rooms are charming and clean. Nice retreat for a getaway.
