5/5 Excellent

This hotel was the most unique place we’ve ever stayed. It was a marvel in many ways, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience with only a few minor flaws: rain shower didn’t work, the grounds where the hot tub is located could be landscaped to provide a beautiful and serene resting spot and there could be more of a staff presence to report

Great girls trip
I enjoyed my stay here . It's been on my list for over a year of places to visit . I rented the elephant room fir the sole purpose of having a soaking tub and I was not disappointed. My towels where amazing and the room was clean . The furniture and fixture are appealing to the eye but when you actually go to use them it's apparent it is not graded for hotel/inn use . The walls are thin ! Bring earplugs or your going to have a great understanding of your neighbors sexual preferences.... unless that's your thing .My girlfriend rented the menagerie room and it was small in comparison to mine but still a great space . I love the communal kitchen idea and we spent time snacking down there however , the cleanliness was on the less desirable side . I would recommend removing cast iron from the rotation there as many people have no idea how to clean it so 1/2 the pans available to cook where rusted . Communication was tough . I called about two months ago to try and coordinate a larger rental opportunity for my husbands birthday , to rent out a few rooms and camp sites and no one responded . Tentr was no help when I emailed as well . Exploring the grounds was awesome ! It took us 1 1/2 hr to walk the property with stops and that was so much fun . It's not an all day thing so make sure you have other things in mind to do . We would up going to Olana . Apparently july is off season in the Catskills and three breweries and two restaurants we had on the list to try were close.

Was a great stay enjoyed exploring the old zoo grounds. The hosts were welcoming and made sure you had everything you needed. We loved the family of goats roaming the grounds.
