Kaatskill Mountain Resort for "Spring Breakers"?

I booked a room at Kaatskill Mountain Resort. When they took my reservation I left a credit card # as a deposit. They charged me on my credit card the first night's stay all ready. This is over six months away and not a holiday weekend. They also said they require an additional $300 placed on a major credit card that may be redeemed when we check out depending upon any damage done to the room. Excuse me!

My husband and I are in our 50's, have traveled extensively and have never experience this type of treatment before. I am concerned that we may have picked the wrong type of place. We are not "spring breakers" and resent being treated as such.

My guess would be that whoever you talked to was winter help and only kne the winter rules. Hunter is a ski center so it is common for people to reservations then decide the weather is too bad and never show up. It is also common for a couple to rent a room for two and have 8 or 10 people actually stay there, so the hotels try and cover thenselves.

I haven't stayed in the Kaaterskill in years, but it was a nice place last time I was there. My favorite place up there is the Vienietian in Hensonville. Small, quiet and very clean with excellent restaurants near by.

Hope this helps.

Another possibility is that your trip may fall on a weekend when they are having their festivals so it would be a high rental week. What are your exact dates? The KMC is not geared toward Spring Breakers & you actually have to be over 25 to check in. The majority of the people staying there are timeshare owners with families. It really is a nice place to stay.
