This room is perfect for someone on a budget who needs a comfy, cozy place while in great western Catskills.

The space

The Hamden Inn is a Delaware County, New York landmark, in operation continuously since the 1840s. True to the old style Catskills hotels, the rooms are cozy and the atmosphere is very relaxed and informal. If you are dependent on modern luxuries then this is not the place for you (no TV or Wi-fi). If you want to explore the beauty of the Western Catskills, don't mind sharing, and enjoy vintage style, the Inn will satisfy. The inn is across the road from our organic produce farm (Lucky Dog Farm) and guests are welcome to cross the fields to the West branch of the Delaware River for some of the area's renowned trout fishing. There is much to do in the area: sit on the porch and watch the world go by, hike some of our region's trails or visit antique stores in neighboring towns. We are an hour from all of Cooperstown's baseball-oriented attractions and conveniently located to SUNY-Delhi.

This room has one twin bed and is suitable for 1 person. Given the "boarding house" nature of the property, the minimum stray is 30 days.

Guest access

In keeping with the Inn's old school, "boarding house" atmosphere, guests share a bathroom and a kitchenette. There is an additional toilet on the first floor.

Interaction with guests

I live across the street and am available by phone for guests. But you should prepare to be independent. I am often not available personally but my employees can help you if required.

Other things to note

Since the Inn is located on a 2-lane state highway, there is some traffic noise. In our rural location, this usually stops in the evenings and the nights are pretty quiet.

A beautiful, comfortable room (I got a spacious one - it seems like there is a variety) in a low-tech but livrable abode in a charming town. The Lucky Dog across the street is delicious. The housemates are most agreeable, and my stay was charming and enjoyable.

Everything was great. I drove up to check out their music night which was spectacularly wonderful. Had dinner before the kitchen closed and had a cozy room upstairs to crash once all the festivities were over.

This is a great place for experiencing what could be the way of the future, by going back to the best of the past. First, the Inn is a classic historic building, complete with towering columns and ceilings so high that you almost forget they are there. It was saved by the owners, Holley and Richard. Then, there is the beautiful organic farm across the street, also owned and run by them. The food from the sweeping fields supply their General Store (an incredibly well-curated place), along with a richness of other local products. And food from the farm is also served in the store's lunchtime cafe, and in the Restaurant that is on the first floor of the Inn. The entire experience is one of fresh, healthy-- Real!--food; of community; and of the General Store spirit, which welcomes you with warm homemade bread, books on the shelves to read while you have a bowl of soup, and locals sharing recipes. The farm landscape, which you are welcome to hike through, is everything you could want in a country setting--gentle mountains, gorgeous farm fields, and a river to meander by at the far back of the fields.
