That's right... three nights in a row without internet!
The first, at Monticello, their internet had gone down. The next, it was so slow I couldn't even access e-mails. Last night I was on the road.
But I assure you I have some great things to tell you all about my visit to Walkill, particularly Patterson and, finally, Brooklyn.
I should get these ready tonight... thanks for your patience.
In 1963 a farm was acquired in a rural area near the village of Wallkill, New York. In subsequent years, additional property was obtained, which signiﬁcantly increased the size of the available area.
For many years, these farms produced vegetables, fruits, meat, and dairy items to feed the Bethel family. At ﬁrst, it was intended ...
... list goes on, but we did NYC proud. Quite tired, but blissfully so. Paul had visited several times before, but I didn't realize NYC is such an amazing place and totally manageable. We felt safe, met courteous people, and the crowd scene was not too bad.
Next we're off to Washington DC, trying to move south quickly enough to stay ahead of the cold weather. We hope everyone is well and would love to hear from you. ...
... NY campsite after dark around 7PM. We had a bit of trouble with our campsite as it was too small. Fortunately we found another close by. Sadly our camper's transformer died with a shower of sparks. Thank God it lasted until now.
We enjoyed a nice ABLT dinner and tucked the boys in for their final night in the camper for this great adventure.
Tomorrow we should be home around 1 or 2 PM God ...
So we get up at 0 dark 30 to get an early start only to find Wade has a low pressure warning on his tire. It started yesterday but clearly not a fluke. We decided it was off to Rusty Palmer to check it out. Sure enough, there is a nail. No fixing that so new tire and breakfast and 20 miles in the wrong direction. Oh well. At least they have sausage gravy and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kutsher's Monticello
This past 4th of July weekend was the first time I have gone to Kutsher's-it certainly won't be my last! From the room to the food to the activites and shows, it was fantastic.
It's Like The Good Old Days!
We met at the Catskills in 1957, married and have been returning to the Catskills for many years. We have vacationed at Kutsher's on and off for the past 15 years and have alwys enjoyed the stay. Last August we attended the Institute of the Catskill's Convention at Kutsher's and thoroughly enjoyed the weekend's activities. It was a great cultural experience and look forward to attending again this year.
Yes, the hotel does needs additional upgrading and perhaps a more timely and efficient check-in procedure would be less stressful. However, I still believe that Kutsher's still provides the best overall food, entertainment and facilities in the mountains.
Perhaps the "good old days " are gone, however Kutsher's is trying hard to capture them!
It was a nice week-end but the rooms need repainted.
We had the Super Deluxe room which was OK but the bathrooms need to be redated. The paint on the walls were peeling.
What a dump
What can I say. this place is well past its prime. The rooms were discusting. It felt as if you were going to fall through the floor. No update since the 1960's. The food is really bad. I went for a convention. I hope it is somewhere else next time.
I just returned from new years eve stay with my family( 4 kids).We
What a wonderful place. I arrived with my family to a newly renovated main lobby. The check in attendants were both curteous and attentive. I had heard the dining room service was legendary but you never know until you try. It was great. Day camp really took good care of the kids, allowing my wife to relax. Entertainment was ok. Would highly recommend to any family for reunions etc. So many things to do.
After returning from my third stay at Kutshers (5 days/4 nights) on a club sponsored bus trip, I am still puzzled. Why hasn't Kutshers improved its amenities and why did I return for the third year? Upon arrival we were ushered into the Sportsmen's Lounge, a holding area, where we had sweets and coffee or tea. The Sportsmen's Lounge must have undergone a flooding several years ago, because its overwhelming mildew odor has not subsided in three years or more.Yes, lobby carpets are new, and probably some of the lobby seating areas. Yet the lawn chairs available near the lake/biking/fishing area are still shabby. Many chairs need to be replaced. Their seats lack plastic webbing. I did spot perhaps four new chairs, but there is still a scramble among guests for decent, sturdy chairs.Also upon arrival, we were informed that most of the rooms our group had reserved a year ago were assigned to guests staying until Labor Day. We were promised rooms with walk-in showers, but only a few were available for those of our guests who were handicapped. Due to the shifting of pre-assigned rooms, luggage was not retrieved for a long period of time or else placed at the doors of the originally assigned rooms. This created inconvenience, not only with the luggage delay, but also the mix-up in phone calls which were relayed to the wrong rooms, etc.This year my husband and I shared a room that was in better shape than the previous two years. Last year the indented space on the wall behind the door knob was filled with newspapers and the room need to be thoroughly cleaned. Our current room only needed the air conditioner to be thawed out. (The coils had frozen.) Last year the shower head had sprung a leak causing water to jet over the shower door into the bathroom but this was repaired with duct tape. This year I noticed the sheer curtain in our bedroom was hemmed with industrial staples!The daily menus included many errors for which the wait staff apologized. Also, one evening many guests turned back chocolate eclairs after discovering that the chef had omitted sugar in their preparation. Flanken (a boiled meat was listed), but it was not the authentic item. (Why list it when it's not what it should be?)Kutshers has a lot to offer, but the lack of attention to guests' comfort (even if off-season) should be corrected. My husband and I have decided not to return next year.I would suggest the availability of coffee at all hours for guests, Kutshers post cards available at the front desk, handing out Kutshers T-shirts or caps to guests who participate in talent shows or entertain. It would be good advertisement and please those people brave enough to entertain before an audience.
Always have a warm regard and a good time
we are always looking foward to to vacation at kutshurs thers that homey atmosphere that makes us want to return time and time again. a great rest is this place with good service and great food. thanks again. The streich family
Although this was 7 years ago, we can't forget what a miserable time we had when we decided to visit Kutchers for a weekend. At the time, I had an 18 month old and a 4 year old with me. After every long walk from the babysitting room to the dining room ( about 5-10min walk thru the lobby) we would get paged to come and get our crying child (18 month old). By the time we'd reach the dining room again, the service was miserable, and the waiter kept giving us dirty looks and comments that the children belonged in babysitting. The babysitters were very young- in the early teens and unequipped to deal with crying children. We also had to spend 3 hours a day in the children's dining room feeding them, in addition to the grown up dining room. Then we'd spend the rest of the day taking everyone to the bathroom, and walking back and forth to the dining room for all the meals. The food was less than wonderful. Not even the deserts were good. The vegetables were overcooked.
My cousin and I were scheduled to stay for 2 nights and a day.We fled the morning after.We were greeted by an unidentified goon barking questions and orders who turned out to be in charge of the valet parkers.He wore no ID--not even a hotel shirt.Our top of the line " renovated" room had no amenities;one wash cloth for 2 people;radiator/air conditioner caked with filth and dust; a couch stained with blood, wine or some other similarly colored fluid.
