“best getaway ever”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My partner surprised me with a reservation at this hotel (surprise was March - our anniversary - and reservation was this week, June). We have lived in upstate NY for 20 years but were always drawn to the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. The Catskills were -- a place I drove our kids to camp and camping for. So this was a great surprise.
The Roxbury's website is promising. It doesn't promise too much, however - you will be surprised and pleased when you arrive to find that it's even cooler than you thought!
We had the Wizard of Oz suite. We're not crazy - weird that way, but I have to say this suite charmed my English-major premises. We only ran out of discoveries, after two days, as we were checking out ("the crow! it was attacking the scarecrow!")
Anyway.
This little gem is hard to describe, but easy to appreciate. One of the hosts suggested a hike up around a local golf course that was not only challenging (well, sort of) but also beautiful (wildflowers!)
Roxbury itself is a tiny place, but we found four different venues for great breakfasts and dinners.
The Roxbury hotel is, in sum, a very special place. We will be coming back to it. (We're Lake Placid/Stowe people, in case anyone is looking for a reference point.) It is a beautiful venue, with fine hosts and a welcoming community.

Room Tip: Check the very helpful website. Rooms vary a great deal, in many cool ways. Pick your best!

We stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Roxbury. The motel is unique and quirky. Every room is different and a total surprise. There is a welcoming patio/deck for hanging out and eating breakfast, along with a verdant, inviting garden area .The facility is beautifully landscaped. The motel is within easy walking distance to the "center" of Roxbury so there's easy access to restaurants. The area is simply beautiful.
The motel provided a varied buffet breakfast with excellent coffee, fresh fruit, cereals, breads and meat and cheese options. The staff and owners are warm and friendly and the facility is spotlessly clean. The soaps and shampoo etc. are first rate. An excellent choice in the area.

Room Tip: We were in room 6, one of the smaller rooms. It was quite dark and the bathroom could have used a fe...

This is the second year in a row we have gone back to the Roxbury since we have discovered it. We went for a combination Fathers Day and my fiancée's Birthday. What can I say but it gets better every time. The Staff is great, Joe and Greg are amazing. We are treated like royalty every time. This time we were upgraded to the Wizards emerald room. It was great. the details were fantastic. On the last day the Lynda had Jessica come down and take our picture in our room and she also showed us a couple of the 2 floor rooms we didn't get to see last year, cant wait to come back next year. Maybe even sooner

Room Tip: they are all great

We were so sad that we could only stay one night, and will definitely return.So many thoughtful touches,from the decor to the in-room facilities to the lovely outdoor spaces and the perfect breakfast that we took onto the patio to enjoy the firepit and the view. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to experience the love that has gone into this upmarket property. My only caveat would be to check the best rooms for accessibility if you have mobility issues; we were fine in our lovely Wizard of Oz themed room but the bath\shower was a little steep. Don't let that put you off - the communication we had in advance of the stay was so helpful that we felt all our needs would be taken care of.

I came up here to ski and Roxbury had good discounted tickets and packages for local ski areas.This was my second time staying at the Roxbury and it was just as amazing as the first time. The rooms are all uniquely and artfully decorated. The reception staff and owners are warm, outgoing and welcoming. They pay so much attention to detail and offer great hospitality -- from the tasty snacks they leave out to the free DVD library and board games to the fragrant, locally made glycerin soaps and the nice breakfast spread. I didn't use the spa, but other guests say it's wonderful too. BTW, if you like the soaps, the lady who makes them is just across the street and a few yards up the road -- there is a large selection in a wooden display on the porch -- you can choose the ones you want and leave money in the box. All so quaint and lovely.

Nestled in a small hamlet this getaway spot was perfect. The rooms where amazing, we had Mary Ann's Coconut Cream Pie room which was great! Spa pass is a must when visiting and covers your entire stay, hot tub, sauna, steam room all kept immaculately clean and well stocked. The entire staff is welcoming and helpful for any need you may have. Cell phone reception is very poor in spots (this is not a complaint!) but Wi-Fi worked very well. Food is a very shot walk across the Creek, with other options within walking distance. Continental breakfast is excellent though starting a 8 am was a smidge late in the day for an early riser, but not a problem as Cassie's Café was open for a nice breakfast and coffee. The front desk was did a great job of recommending dining spots and handling reservations. With the wonderful theme rooms you will want to go back until you have stayed in each one.

The Roxbury is a one of a kind motel . The rooms are all specially designed with a flare for detail that misses nothing. From the moment you walk in you will be amused and delighted with what ever room you chose ! The service was just as wonderful and the people go out of their way to be helpful. Had a great time and been telling people about it for weeks.

Room Tip: go with your favorites
