Wonderful place to stay for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My now-husband and I were looking for a rustic yet elegant location for our wedding weekend. Boy, did this deliver! It's a grand old manor house with plenty of rustic charm. Elegant touches like chandeliers and paneled ceilings go together with old doors and the slightly-skewed floors you only get with truly old houses. It felt like stepping into a fairytale.

The wedding ceremony itself was by their beautiful lake, with candles under the stars. The reception was in a tent surrounded by a field and trees in their meadow. Both were beautiful! If you're not looking for an outdoor wedding, though, the interior boasts a small ballroom which would be perfect for a party!

Russ was wonderfully accommodating about hosting our whole wedding (look into their weekend-long wedding packages! great value!) and made sure we had everything we needed to feel at home. Highly recommended.

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!

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.

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!
