We have stayed at at Alpine over the years and have booked friends there. It's a beautiful setting with wonderful mountain views. The interior however is musty and dated. Rooms are rundown and not worth the price. Good breakfasts though. The innkeepers are a most ungracious lot, grumpy and abrupt as if they are doing you a big favor by registering you. AND beware...they charge a $25 per reservation cancellation fee--even if you cancel within the grace period. I was told this was to cover processing. Processing what? A handwritten form. This place deserves to go out of business. It's time is up!!!

We chose the Alpine Inn because it was reasonably priced and the pictures showed clean rooms with king size beds, swimming pool and the location in the Catskills. Unfortunately for the Inn, we were the only guests during the week which is probably explained by the need for a total renovation. On a positive note: b'fasts were great, the room was clean and the location was convenient to hiking trails and Hunter Mountain for ziplining. On a to be improved note: the rooms all need updating, the linoleum had pulled away from the tub and there was probably some water damage to the sub floor, however, it was nice to have a large balcony! The main inn which includes the business office, sitting area (with large out door deck) and dining room has a faded charm from 30 years ago. The host- never found out his first name (he never introduced himself) was helpful in filling up our water bottles and answering our questions about where to hike & dine but he appeared discouraged -possibly due to the lack of rentals and wasn't the bubbly, friendly type of chap usually seen at inns and B&Bs. The pool, while large and well located in part sun/part shade needed cleaning (dirt from soil, debris from nature). If you're looking for state of the art, new style resort- this isn't it. However, it is serviceable and at $125/nite with B'fast reasonably priced.

If you are looking for a resort that will remind you of a Swiss hotel nestled among mountain peaks, The Alpine Inn is your hotel. The owners are nice, the grounds are majestic and idealic and the air is clean. The rooms are big and clean. One advantage is that you are in short driving distance of great hiking trails, restaurants, white water rafting, and evenings in Woodstock. There is a lot to do here or simply a place to just sit on the porch and unwind.

The location is okay. The rooms are clean.
The check in process took forever. The rooms are dated (in a bad way). We didn't have hot water for half of our stay. The owners were slow and unpleasant. No one said thank you at check out. No one apologized for the lack of hot water.

Room Tip: go somewhere else

The Alpine Inn is clean, comfortable, and feels like your grandmother's house! The staff are helpful and friendly. The breakfast is amazing, and the dinner they serve is worth the extra money. If you expect fully updated, modern rooms, go elsewhere because that is not the point of this place. The suite w/ the fireplace is amazing and comfortable! The rooms are a little pricey, but worth the money.

You are greeted with a promise of good times. Outside well kept and location is tranquil. Lodge is dated, but clean and well presented. Rooms/bathrooms, however, were musty and worn - didn't sleep well. Breakfast was a highlight - ample and tasty. Beware of cancelation policy - no flexibility here!! Place nearly empty on the Labor Day Weekend - you make the call.
