Welcome to Shandaken Inn

Your Home in the Catskills!

Originally built in the late 1920s as the clubhouse for the once popular Rip Van Winkle Golf Course, Shandaken Inn has been welcoming guests to the northern Catskills for almost one hundred years. Following an extensive renovation and reimagination of the property, the Inn will welcome its first guests this fall. With over 12 acres of bucolic country grounds, bordered by the Esopus Creek, made famous for its world class fly fishing, Shandaken Inn features 15 unique and artfully furnished guest rooms. Themed to pay homage to the storied past of the Catskill Mountain region, it’s former great resorts and camps, the Inn evokes the glory days of a time gone by when the Catskills were the premier vacation and recreation destination for the entire region.

Under two and a half hours from New York City, guests can escape to the breathtaking surroundings of the Catskills, enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center, hike, play tennis, swim, and relax without leaving behind modern conveniences like high speed WiFi. With its reimagined restoration, Shandaken Inn will once again, be first in its class, and your home in the Catskills.
