Charming house, comfortable bed, tasty breakfast, and friendly, gracious hosts. Brookside isn't a precious, fancy type of B&B -- the simple, straightforward aesthetic and atmosphere (and the reasonable price) are what make it great. The house is also right in the middle of some really beautiful hikes and drives. And the hosts, Nuala and Marcus, were very helpful with hiking and restaurant tips. We definitely plan to go back.
Having just returned from a week's stay at Brookside (our third time), we once again enjoyed the kind hospitality of Nuala and Markus. From comfortable accommodations in the large Mastersuite to Markus' delicious full country breakfasts and Nuala's many recommendations for hikes and rainy day activities, they once again helped make our vacation wonderful and fun. You can't beat Brookside's location to many excellent and diverse hiking trails, making it a perfect base for our hiking adventures. Clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced, we've enjoyed every visit here and we look forward to returning next year once again. Nuala and Markus (and now, Bowie) will go out of their way to make you feel at home and enjoy each day in the beautiful Catskills.
We took the master bedroom with a private bath. It was spacious enough.We had a little deck to enjoy our early mornings or late evenings at. The room was quaint. The building was an 1890 one and had sprawling lawns. It was a beautiful experience.The owners, Marcus and Nula were at their hospitable best, eager to help with our basic queries about the area and things to do.
Clean, well maintained and in a beautiful location, Brookside B&B is definitely a place we'll be returning to when we visit this part of the Catskills. Located less than 5 minutes to the entrance of the North-South Lake Park area, which has camping, boating and swimming available. We booked the room with the king bed and private path, and it came with a deck. Plenty of room and wifi included. The common area is comfy and has plenty of books/dvd/cds/board games in case you're rained it. Nuala and Marcus are easy going, responsive and charming. We are very happy to have met them. Breakfasts are full and included french toast with sausgae, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee and tea. Couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you!!
Our group of 6 ladies, two moms and four girls needed a place to stay at the last minute, and we were lucky to find the Brookside B&B with availability! We were provided two lovely spacious rooms at a good price - with breakfast included. The owners were very welcoming, and there was a nice comfortable living room to relax in, and hot water to make some tea. The beds were comfortable, and the breakfast the following morning was delicious! Would definitely go back!
