This was a one night trip for a group of couples for a quick getaway.
Location--Beautiful. In the middle of the beautiful mountains in upstate NY. The hotel itself is like no other and so unbelievably charming. You will definitely feel transformed when you arrive. Not like a W or Hilton, but more like a charming Inn (a big one), on a picturesque lake, mountanside. And less then 2 hours from NYC.
Grounds- Amazing hiking and rock climbing that is a must for everyone. You must do the lemon squeeze. But be careful! It is a climb, you should be in somewhat decent shape and have some agility. There are no guides to take you or help along the climb (at least that I noticed).
Rooms- Rooms are basic, clean, and charming. Since the hotel is old, the walls are paper thin, and you will hear everything around you. That is one of the major downsides. Just be sure not to get a room near a heavy trafficked area. But the reality is without TVs you probably wont find yourself staying in the room much. Otherwise, they were spacious and clean.
Food- We did the brunch, lunch and dinner. The brunch and lunch were absolutely fantastic. The dinner not so great. Seems like the ones who enjoyed the dinner the most were the ones who ordered steaks. Everything else was just ok.
If you are looking for a quick getaway to a low-key, beautiful and charming hotel with lots of hiking, biking and other outdoor things to do...you cant go wrong. IF you are looking for a place to just sit all day, party all night....NOT the place.
PS--SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT
