I was a guest at Gavin's for 1 week during Irish Arts Week in mid July and can not sing their praises loud enough! I had not been to the Catskills in the summer months, only to ski at Windham and attend the festivals at Hunter in the fall, so it was with some trepidation that I went to Gavin's because of the less than stellar accommodations that are generally available in the area. I was however COMPLETELY won over by Gavin's. It is super clean and comfortable, the food is plentiful and deliciously satisfying and the family is gracious and caring. The young people that work in the dining areas are enthusiastic, hard working and a joy to talk to. The ground have a lovely trail in the woods where you can enjoy the quiet and listen to the waterfall. Sadly several of the other accommodations in the area have closed or fallen into disrepair, but Gavin's is a truly special place that is an oasis if you are traveling in the area. Irish Arts Week is on my calendar for 2018 and happily so is Gavin's! Thank you Gavin family for a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing you all again!

We stay here every Memorial an Labor Day weeks. The family suite is totally nice affording you a separate bedroom, kitchen, living area, full bathroom and a huge private deck facing the pool. The decor is modern and comfortable. The food is delicious offering a variety of breakfast and dinner items and there is even a buffet lunch. The pool is clean and heated to a nice temp. You can walk to the nearby waterfalls. The hotel lobby offers a wonderful selection of imported Irish gifts, jewelry, clothing, perfume, etc and the prices are reasonable. The staff is always friendly and attentive and the rooms are kept to a standard of cleanliness throughout your stay. Well worth the rates and you are surrounded by the beautiful mountains and peaceful scenery. The pub offers a mixture of music to cater to everyone's and its a great venue to see your favorite Irish performers. Not to mention the excellent scones and baked goods also!

My family just visited this past weekend. There were 62 in our group. Everything went off like clockwork. The rooms were clean, food delicious, staff attentive and courteous, innkeepers responsive and helpful, and entertainment talented and fun! Couldn't have asked for more! Thank you Gavins!

This past weekend I attended the annual Irish culture week in East Durham.I stay at Gavins country inn whenever I go to that area because of the pleasant surroundings,the cleanliness of the facility,and the entertainment in the evenings.The family run inn are anxious to be remembered as they are very kind and courteous to all.I recommend this inn to anyone traveling in this area.There is also a large swimming pool on the property for the use of their guests.
