Or is your group looking for something more private? Make The Inn at Hill Crest Manor your own personal country mansion!

The Inn, a grand Victorian manor house and former Catskills Resort, is located an easy 15-minute drive from both Windham and Hunter Mountains, and minutes to Woodstock and Hudson, and only 2 hours from NYC/GWB.

5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths easily accommodate groups of up to 12 people, with all the amenities in a beautiful antique-filled country manor house. Grand Parlor/Ballroom, Library/Media Lounge, Billiard Room, fully-appointed Eat-In Chef's Kitchen, and Formal Dining Room allow plenty of room for chilling after a day on the slopes. Watch a movie in front of the fire on the large screen HDTV with in-ceiling surround sound; play ping pong or pool in the Billiard Room, or an impromptu dance party in the Grand Parlor (with audio/light system for parties), or apres-ski in the 8-person hot tub.

Twelve acres with Catskill Mountain views, duck pond, trout stream and magical woods. Our renters rave about the place, and we’re proud to say that many of them return again and again!

This property can be rented in combination with The Cottage at Hill Crest Manor to accommodate groups of up to 20.

An Innkeeper lives on-site in private quarters to ensure that your stay is untroubled by maintenance or security issues.

Quiet, Lofty House in the Middle of Nature

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the Inn at Hill Crest Manor. The house is grand and eccentric--a library and ballroom!--and the surroundings are serene and refreshing. I recommend hiking the area nearby, as well as an excursion into Hudson. This is a great home base for a cozy weekend trip in the Catskills!

Our Annual Family Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Every year we choose a new destination for our annual family ski trip... there are 13 of us, kids included and we all ski... this year we chose Windham mountain and just happened upon the Inn at Hill Crest Manor, boy were we lucky!!! What an amazing find, tucked back in off the beaten path! The house was beautiful and the kitchen is actually beautifully updated from the pics online. Each bedroom fit our family perfectly and was super cozy!! Owner Russ was right there whenever we needed him and we were able to use the "winter porch" for playing cards in the evenings thanks to the newly installed Pellet stove :) If your looking for a fun, full of history, eclectic, off the beaten path, the Inn at Hill Crest Manor is your place :) :)

Great house for a multi family stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the Inn over Presidents' Day weekend with 3 families all with kids. Great location, quiet but only 20 minutes from the slopes. Russ made us very welcome. Loads of space for the kids to run around, all bedrooms very comfortable and we were grateful to have so many bathrooms after a day of skiing! Wrap around porch would be wonderful for warmer evenings. We'll be back!

WONDERFUL HOUSE/WONDERFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5

I found this place online and thought it would be perfect for a group weekend and it could not have been a more wonderful weekend. The owners are kind and honest and from the minute we booked the house until we left they made sure everything we needed was available. We had such a wonderful time and the house is great. The rooms are perfect size and the ability to have your own bathroom is even more fantastic. We loved the hot tub and the ballroom was perfect for us to all be together and have fun. Everyone in our group had such a wonderful time and Russ was always available if we needed anything. He gave us such a great tour when we got there that it was just like being at home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone. It was a quick drive to Hunter even though we were very content with staying at the Inn. We will be back every year if not again in the summer.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a blast at the Inn at Hill Crest Manor. The house is gorgeous and so cozy. We spent a lot of time in the library watching tv and in the beautifully decorated ballroom. The location was very convenient and close to everything. Thank you!

Perfect Wedding Locale, Unparalleled Service!

  • 5 of 5

The moment my fiance and I visited the Inn at Hill Crest Manor and met Russ and Will, we knew that our Autumn Wedding was destined to take place there. We didn't think that we could find as beautiful a wedding location that could host the ceremony, reception and house our friends and family for the entire 3-day weekend. In fact it exceeded our expectations! They put us in contact with local vendors, our caterer, and connected us with other resources for our wedding. The house was pristine.The surroundings were breathtaking, bursting with fall foliage. All of our guests raved about the comfort and charm of the place and its vintage feel. Russ and Will have restored the inn to its original splendor and have updated it with modern features (like the amazing kitchen). They were very attentive to our needs and made sure we were happy throughout the entire weekend. They put up festive lights, bought fresh hanging flowers for the porch in keeping with our theme and made great suggestions for the flow of the event. They were friendly and accommodating, warm-hearted and thoughtful. They even brought my wife and I water intermittently during the reception! It was truly the perfect wedding locale with unparalleled service. They didn't just host our special weekend, but became an integral part of the experience and went above and beyond anything you would ever expect. I give the Inn at Hill Crest Manor my highest recommendations to anyone looking for a genuinely special experience for their event.
