Thank you Mary. We love welcoming you and your husband with your son and his girlfriend! It's always a pleasure hosting you and love our chats!

My family comes to Gavin's every other year for a family reunion. We come from Long Island, some live nearby and some come from out of state, We have well over 100 people, tons of kids ranging from newborn to young adults. There's something for everyone and the staff is great. I would highly recommend.

They say family friendly but they are talking about adult hard drinking partying families- you do not want your kids around this. There were people up drinking handles of liquor on the main lawn and screaming and fighting until 5 am both nights we were there. Even though we called the front desk nothing was done until the police came...

We sincerely apologize for your stay and we hope you will consider us in the future. As Innkeepers of 4 young children ourselves, we totally understand your predicament and would be upset too under the circumstances.

Staff and owners were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were very clean and extremely spacious. This resort is off the main highway which is a plus is you are looking for someplace quiet. The pool and swimming area are well maintained and clean. There are plenty of great activities for the kid and food was plentiful and very good. A...

My wife and I also visited Gavin's for the first time for The High Kings weekend. What a terrific time we had: Dancing in the Pub every night, and an absolutely incredible concert Sunday night in the Pub! I cannot say enough about this resort. Yes, our room was small and a bit dated, but all we did was sleep...

Gavins is a fun place and good deal, but if you are booking a room, make sure you get a first floor one - otherwise you are dealing with about 13 steps up and down with luggage, etc. If you are short - be prepared to not have a mirror that you can reach in the bathroom. No idea why...

We went to Gavin's for the first time because the High Kings were playing there. What an awesome place! A lovely little resort in the Catskills that's from decades ago, updated and maintained in keeping with the present. Beautiful pool surrounded by individual, quaint, white, 2-story buildings, each with about 6 units. A main building with a tea room, the...

We booked this place online late on a Friday night, they had a room available Saturday night. Set off on motorcycles early in the morning and arrived before 11am.
