Horse Shows in the Sun

Hi Al & Kathy,

We really enjoyed our stay with you and look forward to visiting again. Hopefully, we'll do HITS again next summer.

Best Wishes and Stay Well,

Music in the Mountains!

Our nineteen year old son and his classical music quartet stayed at the Catskill Mountain Lodge for five weeks this past Spring as Artists in Residence. Al and Kathy took great care of them. The boys loved the food, and really liked the swimming hole on Kaaterskill Creek at the back of the property. The rustic environment gave my son the chance to bond with his inner Thoreau. My wife and I enjoyed staying at one of the cabins during our visits, using it as our base to explore the local attractions. We loved the jazz nights at the Kindred Spirits.

Theater in the Woods

I stayed at the Castkill Moutain Lodge with a group of fellow actors from England and France last Autumn and we had a great time! I recommend the Breakfast at the Kindred Spirits Steakhouse & Pub (it is delicious!!!). Don’t hesitate to take a trip there in the evening too . . the music is awesome and the drinks are very affordable.
This place is so close to the city and yet you will feel like you entered another world. We made quite a few friends with others who were staying there and we are still in touch to this day.
If you want a quiet relaxing time away from the city, I could not recommend the lodge more! The owners were really nice to us and very accommodating; we felt just like at home thanks to them! I can’t wait to go back!

Kaaterskill Falls Hike

Two southerners looking for a break from New York City, with absolutely no knowledge of the area found the best kept secret in the Catskill State Park. Located on the edge of the park, the Catskill Mountain Lodge is a short and scenic drive away from the park's most picturesque attractions.

The owner of the lodge, Al, is reminiscent of a wise, old owl who will stop at nothing to ensure your stay is as enjoyable and pleasant as possible. He will give you directions to area attractions, arrange taxi service and serenade you with the music of such icons as Dave Brubeck and Antonio Carlos Jobim while you dine at Kindred Spirits. Most importantly, while we were waiting for our bus back to the city, Al ran down the street waving the bus down for us to make certain we didn't miss it.

The Catskill Mountain Lodge is a home away from home we'd recommend to anyone.

Family Ski Holiday

We had a very good time at Catskill Mountain Lodge . You two were so kind and your hospitality was so good ! My daughter enjoyed the count down party with my wife. She had an excellent experience and she was so excited. I'm looking forward to seeing you this year , in the summer, if possible.

Best regards,


Porterhouse Nights . . .

Dear Al,

Well, we came home and had to go back to reality. We had a really great time this weekend and want to thank you and Kathy for being such great hosts. The Porterhouse steaks were EXCELLENT, as well as the hospitality. And, I must say, I feel I made a friend in you.

Your Friend,

Alex E.
