“Lovely hosts provide a peaceful farmhouse retreat with cozy beds and delicious breakfasts.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

The Brookside, hosted by a lovely couple serves up comfy beds and elegant breakfasts, with eggs from their own hens, bacon from their own pig and homegrown jams. The hosts are happy to chat or just show you your room and let you relax.

15 minutes to Hunter Mountain. Ask about discounts at the moutain - they saved me and my girlfriend $32.

Don't miss North/South lake, a lovely flat walk around or (sometimes on) a beautiful lake just a 3-minute drive down the road.

Some bedrooms have shared bathrooms. The larger bedroom had a nice deck overlooking the backyard and the brook and its own private bathroom. Reasonable rates, and off (not far off) the main stretch.

I just came back from taking my family to Hunter Mountain for a ski Weekend. We stayed at Brookside Bed and Breakfast which was conveniently minutes away from the Mountain.
Our accomodations were very clean,comfortable and very well priced.
The owners were super friendly and extremely helpful and had many suggestions for places to check out. Each morning we ate an amazing Breakfast which included homemade Jams and breads that kept us going for a good part of the day.
My family had an amazing long weekend and we will definitely stay here next time we go to Hunter Mountain.

Having stayed at this B&B several times since 2001 we would recommend it to all ages, with or without families. Great location, plenty of outdoor activities nearby for all the seasons. Proprietors are very knowledgeable about the area and its history.

The location of this B&B is great for exploring the area, close to hikes etc. A few miles from town where there are a few places to choose from for dinner. We stayed in an ensuite double and it was very spacious, and we just loved the decor of this place with lots of antique furniture, it looks as though it hasn't changed for a few years and that adds to the charm. Other B&Bs in the area have fancier rooms etc. so it depends what you are looking for - we wanted to find somewhere comfortable and relaxing. The building itself is as pretty as it looks in the photos. The hosts are very helpful and provide lovely breakfasts, maps of the area and plenty of advice.

We stayed 2 nights at the Brookside at the end of Oct 2009. The B&B is really centrally located for all the sights as well as for hiking in the area. The owners, Markus and Nuala, are really wonderfull;their hospitallity made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were a hot full breakfast with eggs and bacon one day and blinches the next, and were tasty, and the table setting added to the atmosphere.
The house was very clean, cozy(Markus lit the fireplace every afternoon for us, even though we came between seasons and had the house to ourselves), and comfortable. They were very helpful with their knowledge of the area and what sights to see and what not, as well their as recommendations for dinner were spot on.
All in all we had a very pleasant experience and would like to return.

We stayed at Brookside B & B, Haines Falls, during late July. A charming,period house, nestled in the Catskills mountains. The large en suite bedroom was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a decked area,just outside, perfect for enjoying the view and the visiting wildlife. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. Hosts Markus and Nuala were eager to share their knowledge of the locale and it's history. The food is of the highest standard - european style strawberry pancakes and banana bread a great start to anyone's day.
Our stay was too short, so much to see and do and Brookside is the perfect starting point. Finish off the day with an ice cream at the Twilight Store or a beer on the porch what more could you ask for - can't wait to go back during the winter to see it covered in snow.

This was our first trip to the US and we decided to spend all of our 8 days at Brookside. We just loved everything about the place. We had a lovely spacious room at the front of the house and it was always quiet. We shared a bathroom but that was never a problem and I think one of the other rooms has an en-suite. There is also a large living room and a dining room and we really felt at home.
Nuala and Markus made us so welcome. They were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was always a real treat. Everything was beautifully cooked, including lots of local produce and their own homemade jams and preserves. They even put on a late breakfast for us when we had a couple of late nights after the Mountain Jam festival at Hunter!
Brookside is a lovely traditional building, dating back to the late 19th century. It is on the road to North-South Lakes and couldn’t be more convenient for the local attractions. We had some great walks from the lakes to some amazing viewpoints over the Catskills and the Hudson Valley, and also made several visits to the Katerskill Falls which are close by. We also enjoyed trips to the local towns including Saugerties and Woodstock. We could just relax on the front porch or wander around the garden which we shared with Mousey the cat as well as the dog and chickens!
Overall we had the most fantastic week. For anyone visiting New York, I would recommend getting out into some beautiful, unspoilt countryside and staying at Brookside which was only about 2 ½ hours north of Newark airport.
