Little About Winter Clove Inn

First and foremost, I would like to say a big thank you to Winter Clove Inn and its owners. They were very kind to host my family while exploring Catskills NY. Regardless of the hosted stay, all opinions about the hotel experience and hospitality are entirely mine.

Winterclove Inn is a very unique resort. It is one of the oldest single-family-owned resorts in New York State. The hotel welcomed its first guest in 1838.

Much has changed since then. What has stayed the same is that the Whitcomb family continues to welcome its guests to the resort to offer the best hospitality.

You will find guests of all ages in this hotel. We were also pleased to meet with the current owners, who were often present at the property, to ensure their guests’ needs were fully satisfied.

Bonfire Evenings

Staying at the Winter Clove means experiencing nature and outdoor activities at their best. Bonfire evenings were one of our favorites.

The bonfire is set up on the hotel land. However, it is a few minutes walk away from the Main hotel building. There is a short walk in a dark field. If you are alone, the walk can feel spooky. However, it sets the mood for a beautiful evening after getting to the fire. You feel surrounded by nature and warmed by the fire. It is peaceful, and it is lovely.

I am so glad we experienced this beautiful evening together with kids (who were much less worried about the walk and super excited about the real-life bonfire).
