 History and Hospitality —  CWH is the oldest continuously operating Inn in the Northern Catskill Mountains.  Lodging, hearty farm fresh meals and a tankard or two were offered to the Inn’s first guests, the drovers, who herded cattle down the toll road – today Route 23.  The Inn, a stop on the Catskill-Delhi stagecoach route, offered subsequent travelers a place to rest and refresh from the rigors of their journey.  Over time the  farm house grew to accommodate folks from the metropolitan areas who sought respite in the country.  Much like today’s travelers, they came to breathe fresh air, to enjoy the beautiful countryside, to eat good food and to regenerate their souls.


The dining room, as you see it today, is three distinct sections.  The “Sun Room”  was originally an open porch facing open pastures across the road.   The middle section was the original dining room during the heyday of the boarding house era. Here long tables were set, and as many as 70 people sat  dining family style.  The largest section of the dining room was added in 1968.  Today as then, along with the dedicated staff, we strive to offer  you the same warm hospitality of days gone by..  On behalf of the Christman Family, thank you for dining with us.

Sincerely, Brian and Ruth Christman
