There is nothing available here, that was advertised on the many booking sites. There is no wifi. There is no gourmet dining. The yoga instructor is Lewis. The massage therapist is Lewis. The cook is Lewis. This is so weird and so creepy.

Lewis, the host, is condescending, and egotistical, and fancies himself to be an expert of every subject. It's kind of funny, but it stops being funny when he interjects himself into every conversation, or random meeting. It becomes very annoying and offensive.

While taking a walk behind the house, we looked into a rear window, which was the kitchen window, and were horrified at the condition and lack of cleanliness in a room where food is prepared. Dirty pots and pans were strewn all over. Open and used packages of food were all over as were utensils. I can't imagine eating or drinking anything that came from that kitchen.

Our room was on the first floor. There was really no security and the only way to lock the door was from the inside, and that was a $2.00 slide bolt. We travel with laptops, cameras, and cell phones. I was reluctant to leave any valuables in the room unattended and locked them up in the car.

Our room was dirty beyond reasonable understanding. There were dead bugs in cobwebs on the ceiling and on the floor at the baseboard. Walls were dirty as though they had not been painted or even washed in years. They were cracked and the ancient wallpaper borders were curling up.

There was a "closet" in our room that was previously padlocked but that was unsecured. On investigation, we found that it lead to the basement. Since it was unsecured, anyone could enter our room via the basement. In addition, there is a hole drilled into the wall, that one standing in that closet, can see inside the room without being detected.

The bathroom had no towels or soap and the sink, soap dish, and bathtub were stained and the faucets were encrusted with what looked like a thick layer of soap sm, or mold.

The bedroom had many windows, some of which could not be closed properly and did not afford us any privacy.

In fact, we didn’t hang around there. We left immediately after check in and returned late at night. We slept in our clothes on top of the bed sheets, which smelled badly, and we found that the mattress was wrapped in plastic and had duct tape holding it together.

The only reason we stayed the night was that finding other accommodations without reservations was difficult (and we tried... we really really tried).

We've stayed and many B&B's over the years and have never encountered such a terrible, dirty establishment. Unfortunately I can’t post pictures or the video we took while there. You can see them on many booking sites where we have left similar reviews.

When I requested a refund, the owner, Lewis Harrison said “your request for refund is denied”

Review: To Whom It May Concern: I am filing a complaint about a recent stay on Saturday, 3-23-13 at the Cat Skills B&B- Stamford NY. In arriving for the weekend we found the B&B was not the experience advertised. The Inn appeared to not be an official B&B (no license was displayed for public viewing) and we were put in the attic or 3rdfloor with no emergency escape. The rooms were dirty and dated 1970s with a few exceptions of attempted remodeling. It was to be a wellness spa, but was not close to that description. A massage was mentioned but there were no credentials present to determine he was a licensed masseuse. We did not pursue any further due to being uncomfortable with the owner who was also the masseuse.We were told about the critters coming into our room overnight as the owner mentioned happens at times. It actually did happen to a guest staying on the first floor while we were there. He provided us a dinner and breakfast. It was to be a healthy fare. The drinking water was brownish color. He gave us Pickled veggies, one perogie (Mrs T) he called a potato dumpling, curry Thai soup that was broth only and not much flavoring, glass noodles in a terrible red sauce, broccoli dish. Our last course was Kale. it was gritty as though it was not washed before preparing. Some had a bad reaction to the food immediately and the following day. We all were very hungry after our dinner. The breakfast was limited with pancakes made from seltzer water. I realized he complied to the dinner and breakfast, but there was no quality to the food served and it was not healthy for the amount of money we spent for this experience. His appearance was unprofessional with a dirty apron and he would dominate the conversations while we dined not allowing us to converse much with each other (which is why we were there). The pictures advertised do not resemble our experience, actually when we pulled into the driveway we didnt think we were at the right place and no one was there to greet us. We were treated rudely because we did not call him before arriving and he harassed one of our members in our party for no reason. I did send him an email the day before with our time of arrival. Our room was not ready or even cleaned, dirty dishes and old food was stored in the cabinets, exposed wires showing, etc. etc. (we have many pictures to prove this). We did make him aware of this. Our arrival was at 2 pm and he was confused about the # of guests and acted as though he forgot we were arriving. He didnt forget about cashing the other parties checks though.The end result was that we left a day early Sunday, 3-24-13 (no additional dinners or breakfast, no massage, no welcome basket) and ended our girls weekend vacation earlier than planned. We lost money on this deal to say the least. We had to pay for additional overnight expenses, where we felt safe for the remainder of our vacation out of state. This B&B is scam to say the least. We have many pictures to prove what we experienced and would be happy to share with you.We thought this so called B&B should be reported to the Revdex.com to prevent others from experiencing the same as we did. If you need further comments, there are many on a site called Yelp, from others that had gone to this same B&B, which unfortunately we did not check into prior to our planning or arrival to our designation.If you need further details, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your attention in this matter.[redacted]@gmail.comDesired Settlement: He needs to be checked into and either fix up his so called B&B or be shut down. It is not even safe to be/stay there. It would also be nice to get a refund from him as it was not at all what we were expecting via speaking with him email and website. in the amount of $1245 ( 3 coupon offers @ $415 each including tax). You may either reimburse [redacted] her amount, [redacted] her amount, and [redacted] her amount, or one check payable to [redacted] for the entire amount which I will disperse to each party involved. That would be $415 each or $1245 total.

Nearly 4 1/2 years have passed since this traveler submitted their review and NOTHING has changed. We stayed there in October 2017. What was to be a romantic getaway, turned into the Nightmare on Main Street. I wish I had seen this and so many other negative reviews before we made our reservation. My wife was traumatized days after we returned home.
