The VanWinkle Inn is known as a "Sleepy Bed and Breakfast" located in the Great Northern Catskills. It was built in 1830 and has a wonderful history. We pride ourselves in the comfort of our rooms and quality of our wonderful home cooked breakfasts! We also boast an Alpaca farm only minutes up the road for the delight of our guests.

Nice place to stay in the Catskills. It's close to Hudson, Tannersville, and Catskill state park. The room we had was large, the bed soft. The stairs are steep, so don't bring a lot. The breakfast was average. Not many choices. It's close to a few good restaurants like Vince An

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. The stairs in the 1800's were indeed steeper than today. Their architectural nuance is part of the historical ambience guests appreciate. If of concern to any guest, we provide two rooms on the main floor. Regarding breakfast, we serve fresh fruit platters, fresh juice, you were served free range eggs and locally baked peasant bread with all the coffee or tea you desired. The bacon you were served is also locally sourced. All our food is prepared by Holly in our kitchen. Being a small family run b &b, the menu is limited to the days offering. We make every effort to accommodate folks when they request special consideration(s). Whilst your needs and desires called for a short stay, many of our guests enjoy longer stays golfing the abundant courses, hiking the many trails available, hunting, fishing, visiting historic sites throughout the nearby area, antiquing, or holding conferences at the inn. We are also a favorite destination wedding location. Once again, thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

April you are already on our top 10 guest list! It is wonderful to have a guest notice the “little” things that we always try to ensure are in place for our travelers! You absolutely made our day and we so enjoyed your company. Kindest Regards, Bert and Holly 😃

We stayed here for a skiing weekend at Windham. The Inn is highly recommended so we gave it a shot. The home has such character. Holly and Bert are the 3rd owners since 1820 and this place is in amazing shape for a 200 year old residence. A warm and inviting communal living area

"The Inn is on a country road, across from a wooded area. There aren't any "views", but lots of "quiet"!"
"We had the Turner suite - private bath."
"Upstairs & downstairs rooms (choose downstairs if mobility impaired), is on a corner so some limited morning traffic."
"Peggy & Madeline Rm is on 1st floor. It has a private bathroom & shower. With mobility issues this was perfect for us!"
"Ask for a room at the back of the building especially in open window season."
