The Bavarian Manor Country Inn has a great sense of place.
Washington Irving called the Catskill Mountains a “spell-bound region”. When you arrive you feel it. This historic Victorian country hotel has been a Catskill Mountain landmark since 1865. Starting out as a mineral water health spa, then becoming “The Columbian” and then in the early 1930′s, it was purchased by the current owner’s grandparents and renamed The Bavarian Manor Country Inn. It’s mission, as stated over 145 years ago, has been to offer guests a calm oasis from a stressful world in a friendly and gracious manner. It was once written (in the 1940′s) that the Inn attracts a happy and carefree group. That is true today as well. Come and sit on our lovely porch in all seasons! Enjoy the fresh air, open sky, peace and rest. We like to see our guests come back time and time again and look forward to meeting new guests.
There is a sign someone gave us. It says “Stress Free Zone”. Can you relate?

- New York Daily News – “This secluded rambling country inn is worth seeking out for it’s old world charm and robust German cooking. While the menu is part German they feature an interesting variety of specials every week….When you drive in the curved driveway, you instantly get a friendly feeling of a comfortable easy-going relaxed sense of peace. No pretense here. The big front veranda is set up with lots of wicker chairs and flowers, a slight breeze is always blowing and it’s the place to letting out all pent up stress”
