Just What We Hoped For
We had a 27-person family reunion this past weeked. We rented 5 larger cabins. We could not have asked for anything more. Each was clean, comfortable, and contained all the amenities we wanted. Having a corner of the property to our little group allowed us to be together inside and outside and not disturb others. We spent a couple of nights around the campfire, with pleny of chairs, and plenty of room. Having the covered porch area made the early morning coffee and treats a little more cozy- and warmer this time of year! The staff was helpful at check in time, and they bent over backwards to make sure we had what we needed. Good place- good rates- looking forward to coming back next year!
Response: Thank you for the review, I know it was difficult for you in the beginning to get everyone together and I\'m so happy it all worked out and everyone enjoyed themselves. I can\'t wait to have you all back next year!
we loved the hominess and relaxing feeling at valley brook. our cottage was very clean and cozy. uriah is a wonderful asset to the place-he helped us with lots of little things and was more than accomodating each and every time. great guy!
Response: Thank you fr the review and we hope to see you again soon
More Than We Expected
My wife and I have stayed in the general area, between Wurtsboro and Ellenville, several times in the past, and had always been happy with that region. Unfortunately, due to time and illness, the chalet resort where we stayed has fallen into a very sad state of disrepair.
When we saw a special offer for Valley Brook, we said let's give it a try. Wow, were we surprised. This place was much more than we ever expected. OK, so we could not pull our car up to the cottage door, but Uriah was more than happy to transport our luggage for us. What a great asset he is to the resort.
We will surely be back again, and bring some friends with us.
Response: Thank you for the review and we are so happy you found us and look forward to your next stay with us
Just what we needed!
My cousin and I headed down from the thousand islands for a concert in Bethel. We didn't have any extra time to check out what was around the area but the cottage itself was perfect for us. Very clean, had own deck space and thank god for the shampoo that came with the place because we forgot ours! Not to mention the owner lady was wonderful, next time we come we will allot plenty of extra time to venture into te place better. All in all wonderful place to stay!
Response: Thank you for the review and I\'m happy we were able to accommodate you, we look forward to your next stay with us
Homey place, relaxing vacation
My parents and I stayed for 4th of July weekend in one of the cottages (had neighbors upstairs, but did not see/hear them). The cottage was pretty rustic and small, but kitchen had all the utensils you would need, fridge/stove, and a nice porch outside, with a grill. I'd say it's the perfect place for a cross between a stay-cation and a vacation - nothing fancy but has all the basics, and is at a great location.
We did not take advantage of any amenities on the property, but did visit many nearby attractions. The property is in an ideal location for exploring the Shawanagunk Area.
Beatiful/easy hiking ares such as Minnewaska State Park / Mohonk Preserve / Sam's Point preserve are nearby, as are a drive-in movie theater, pick-your-own farms, wineries (about an hour away is Woodbury Commons Shopping Outlets, and Storm King Art Center).
Response: Thank you for the review, I hope you come back soon and get a chance to relax in the pool, also thanks for the recco on area hiking, FYI Woodbury Commons is only about 35 minutes away, great place to shop!
After being very apprehensive and nervous about my first camping experience, I must say that I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the cottages. As well as everything that was provided in the cabins. the fire pit and pool directly out front of our cabin made things extremely convenient. Not to mention the sound of the running stream outside bedroom window was extremely relaxing, which allowed me to get the rest I was looking forward to on this weekend getaway. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quick getaway out of the city for some family fun and relaxation. Also the location was perfect next to stores and good restaurants. Donna the owner was very kind and welcoming. I definitely will be visiting again before the summer ends.
Response: Is it wrong to say i\'m glad the other place was over booked? It was great meeting you and look forward to your next stay with us =)
“Doggy paradise... well paradise for us as well!!!”
To start, management is fantastic. I could't imagine a more genuine welcome. Donna and her staff are very willing and relaxed. Exactly what my partner and I needed on our get-a-way from the busy city.
Cleanliness, let's start with the pool. While we have a never been in it... we have avidly watched the daily cleaning of it while having our morning beer... and continued to witness the cleaning through the early afternoon. Best analogy: Turks and Caicos water.
The rooms are cute and cabin-esque. Fun faux-log walls and minimalistic to let you feel that woodsy roughing it feeling you want in the middle of Catskills. Clean sheets and daily towels from the friendly staff. (I will say the towels are a bit thin, but no one said you can't bring your own or put in a request).
Ambiance, ummmmmm ... babbling brook!?!?!?! Took me by surprise when it was outside my cabin window!!!!!!!!!!! DREAMS COME TRUE!!!! This place was much more than I expected (personally that is). While being tucked away in this foliage-full atmosphere, you still have access to your necessities, including beer, gas, grocery, and Danny's (bar and restaurant).
There is plenty of hiking around if you know where to look and the town of Wurtsboro is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E. Canal Town Emporium
Response: I miss the smell of breakfast on the BBQ lol, looking forward to your next stay and seeing Prince the blinking doggie =)
We booked the king cottage for 10 days, and stayed an extra day because we where having such a good time. All of the staff is very helpful, and Uriah was always around to offer assistance, he really went out of his way to make sure our stay was pleasant. The cabins offered all the amenities we needed for a long stay. We especially liked that we had our own porch to watch the world go by. The property offered everything from a large pool, to volleyball, to basketball, and had footballs lying about. I love that small attention to detail. The pool always had clean fresh towels, and plenty of lounge chairs to sun in. All the cabins have grills which we took advantage of by having an a lobster bake. There are plenty of dining options within walking distance from Chinese to Italian, to an Ice cream stand across the street. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.
Response: Rick and I so enjoyed meeting you guys and I know he enjoyed the lobster bake, next time I wont miss it. Make it back soon!
I have no complaints whatsoever. The rooms were clean, the pool was very clean. Nice play space for the kids. The parking section is not right by the cabins but that was great that I didnt have to worry about the kids getting run down on the way to the pool. I enjoyed my brookside room (though it was more of a mini raging river after all that rain... dug that even more... put me right out at night) My best friend and I are planning to come back again next year as the kids have told us they want to make this an annual thing.
Thanks for a nice stay.
Room Tip: If you want a brookside room, make sure you ask specificaly for that.
Response: Thank you for your review, we look forward to seeing you again soon
I really enjoyed my stay in Cottage 15. You are close to the Monticello Raceway and you have WiFi and a full fridge, freezer, oven and stove. The guy you have who checked me in is terrific. I\'d keep him. He always asked if I needed anything and when I asked for a couple more towels, he brought them right over. He knows customer service. When I arrived the air conditioner was not installed, he came right over to take care of it. I left him a tip on the kitchen table. I hope he gets it.
The only change I would make is the tv. I\'d have another tv in the corner wall on the right as you walk in. Also, I would make the tv less confusing. If you enter channel two from NY and then use the arrows on the remote to channel up you have to go though 10 channels of audio only stations. I\'d also have a channel line up in the cottages. We are not from here and do not know the stations. I had asked you earlier if you had the NBC Sports Network on you cable tv. You said no. You do get it, but it is so hard to find. Same with Fox News and the Weather Channel. I would just up date that and make it simpler for the guests.
But I do want to say again, I totally enjoyed my stay and I hope to return in the Autumn for the Breeders Cup weekend which is on the NBC Sports Network and you do get it.....
Thanks again and I hope to come back in late October. I enjoyed my stay.
Response: Looking forward to your visit again in October, we appreciate you choosing our hotel =)
