The Catskill Rose is an easy-going, warm and inviting place to stay. Peter, one of the owners, greeted us upon arrival. He told us that there were apples and scones waiting in the room for us. He is friendly and welcoming.
The first thing we noticed when we walked into the room was how clean and fresh the room smelled.
The room had a dresser, TV, low profile king bed, a small table with 2 chairs and coffee pot, microwave, counter with a fridge beneath it. On the counter the owners put dishes, coffee cups, coffee, tea, glasses, napkins, untensils and a cork screw. In the fridge was a container of assorted scones and butter and there were apples in the basket on the table.
The bathroom was spotless and stocked with plenty of towels. In keeping with their eco-friendly policy, there were liquid soap and shampoo dispensers at the sink and shower.
We had dinner at the Catskill Rose Restaurant on our first night. The brined roasted pork tenderloin with onion and pancetta was delicious. For dessert, I had the creme brule and my husband had apple cake with ice cream. They have a nice wine list.
The courtyard outside the restauant doors is set up with tables and chairs with lights strung accross overhead and lanterns that start to glow as the sun goes down, giving the courtyard a dream-like atmosphere.
We parked in front of our room and could come and go as we pleased without disturbing the other guests.
The Catskill Rose is located on Rt 212 just off of Rt 28. There are so many places you can go to from here. 212 into Woodstock and Saugerties or 28 to Phoenicia.
We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at the Catskill Rose and enjoyed every minute of our weekend.
