No hotel, motel, bed and breakfast, campsite, or cave that we've ever stayed in has had more issues than the Catskill Bed & Breakfast Spa. What a disaster, and it's all man-made by the owner Lewis Harrison. Lewis is quite a character and a legend in his own mind. He is

We usually try to stay at chain hotels or motels, But we were visiting some friends in Roxbury, NY and this was the closest place we could find that had rooms available on Columbus Day weekend. We also usually check the reviews on yelp. We didn’t do that. THIS PLACE IS A HORROR

I am sorry that the guest was not satisfied with the accommodations and felt so hostile and mean-spirited towards me personally. A few points. 1. If you read other reviews from the very same weekend those other guests greatly enjoyed their stay with us. It is as if these other guests stayed at a different place. 2. This is not a hotel. It is a B & B. I do not know when guests are going to arrive. I often stack wood rake leaves and do other chores while waiting for the guest to arrive. 3. I never speak with people without asking their permission first. 4. Since I do not know which guest this was specifically I can only assume it was the guest who sought an upgrade to the room with a hot-tub. I had them moved into that room 20 minutes. and they thanked me profusely. I and my wife spent hours with this couple in pleasant conversation. I thought they were a bright and lovely couple and they spoke with me as much as I spoke with them (I am a good listener). I often asked them if it was OK to speak with them and they said it was fine. I really liked them and enjoyed having them here clearly the feeling wasn't mutual. About the description of the house. It is just plain inaccurate. It is on the national historic registry. The house was built in 1898, is reviewed by a code enforcement officer and the health department a number of times per year. 5. A final thought. These guests brought take-out Chinese food into the room. I specifically asked them to place the remains in a plastic bag and leave it outside their door. They did not do so. We are on the edge of a State Park and food left like this draws vermin. We really like serving people. I hope this review does not dissuade you from coming to visit our lovely home. That is correct. This is our home. I do not live in a house with cobwebs, and the other things this guest described. Thanks for taking the time to read my response. Lewis Harrison

It was great having you as our guest. We look forward to having you with us again. It was great talking baseball with you and enjoying the country air. Lewis

This place has far more in common with a hostel than anything that is generally understood to qualify as a bed and breakfast, let alone spa. None of the rooms have actual locks on them, meaning that there is no way to secure personal belongings if you would like to leave the

I said a great visit, because it is more than a stay. Yes we met the owner and had a great chat over coffee the next day. If you want to stay at a hotel you merely stay there, if you overnight in a person's home you visit with them. The home and room was nice and well situated
