Don't stay here...very dated!!

Reviewed 9 september, 2022

Roaring Brook Ranch Resort I'll start with the good because the bad list is long and gotta give credit where credit is due. The property (not buildings) is beautiful and it has phenomenal potential. The beds were comfortable and the sheets and towels were both so soft so we did love that. The surround on the tub and the showerhead was new so we had nice showers. There is a communal firepit where they provide free sticks and marshmallows. Now for the bad..grab some popcorn this may be long. Days before we checked in I tired getting ahold of the ranch. Called literally 9 times(I checked my call log)..no answer or answering machine. Sent email, sent message on Facebook as well. Still no answer. Starting freaking out they weren't even open and we would have no place to stay so I finally put a post up in an Adirondack's Facebook rental page and someone finally got a hold of me the morning of check in. They sent me a text from someone's phone so that the only communication I ever got from them. We were worried we may not make the 11pm checkin time..they told us if we didn't make it they could cancel the room without penalties..I said why would we want to cancel...we're staying 2 nights and will have no place to go. So ultimately I had to leave work early to make it on time. After check-in they gave us a room we had to drive to got all our stuff out of the car walked to room and they gave us a dirty or occupied room. So called the new secret number they gave us that people actually answer and we had to load the car back up and drive to a new room. They gave us a piece of paper with a number on it however it was missing a number so I had to call the after hours number. I'm not sure why they are having such issues with phones around here. They said something about work being done to the phone lines but why wouldn't they put the working number on their website for people to call and actually talk to a person. Rooms were musty and stains all over the carpets...big spider in the tub and we even had a mouse both nights walking on our tables. Tried to get a video but little guy was quick. I get it woods=animals but maybe if there wasn't a huge gap under our main door the mice wouldn't be in here. They provide coffee in the morning however they ran out of cream..she blamed it on the "busy weekend " but still can't someone run out and get it..there were alot of unhappy people waiting in line when they found out there wasn't cream. At check out I was hoping for some form of a discount and she did give us $30 off for the mouse. This place had SO much potential and they are just letting it fall apart and rot away. The inside restaurant is closed, the inside bar is closed, it looks like they at one point held weddings/events here but the green(now brown with stains) carpet was still from the 60's and causes the whole main area to smell horrible and musty. Ultimately as you can tell we were completely disappointed in this place and will not be returning. Please think twice before booking..we though it was cheaper because it was not in town but just outside if it and the now know thats not why it was cheaper.... Roaring Brook Ranch Resort No roaring brook, no ranch with horses or other animals other than mice and absolutely not a resort although it could be with a new owner. Someone please buy this place and bring it back to its glory!

Reviewed 20 july, 2022

There was No WiFi no TV for 2 days said they were working on it. Just be honest if you don’t have WiFi or cable rather than tricking people. No horses Anywhere, most of the place is run down I definitely will not return

Beautiful grounds and so much potential

Reviewed 19 july, 2022

I started coming here 5 yrs ago before the room renovations. This was family owned since the 1920’s and this place is very big with beautiful rolling hills grounds, which accomodated the many people who came when these all inclusive resorts were very popular. The owner died and this place has undergone some much needed changes, when it was bought by a big company. During the 1980’s these places suffered with few customers so there was no money for renovations. The main lodge in this place is enormous with several large rooms for eating, drinking, shows, etc. and hasn’t been used for these things in a long while. Its like a 1950’s time capsule and I’m just fascinated looking at it when i go. Think dirty dancing. The outdoor pool has been totally redone with new concrete, decking, new furniture and tiki like bar. I believe they did something so the water isn’t freezing as well. It has enough tall trees and open sun areas to please everybody. It used to have horses up until a few years ago so maybe they will come back. They also have a redone indoor pool area, a really nice fire pit and a tennis court. I can imagine if they redo the main lodge it will be ready to host weddings or big events and with the beautiful grounds it will be great. I love wandering around there. There are still some abandoned buildings on the property that will probably be knocked down or renovated when they get busy. Its only 5 minutes from the town, so I will probably continue to stay at roaring brook ranch. I love not being right in town and having room. Also, they have minimal staff so its not at full swing with service which was fine for me.

More like a cheap motel but has great potential

Reviewed 9 july, 2022

This place has SO MUCH potential. It was actually sad to walk the beautiful grounds because I just wished I can buy it and make it all that it can be. The staff was great. While short handed , it was clear they were doing everything they can to ensure the guests have a great stay and experience. The rooms were clean however you can tell the upgrades done are half assed just to get it in a functional state. Again the ground are beautiful, the location is spot on. I just wish it was in a better condition.

Charged 2X for our Stay

Reviewed 28 december, 2021

My husband booked our 2 night stay at the end of August 2021 through Hotwire for $362. We were then charged an additional $250 on August 30th 2021. I have tried multiple times to call Roaring Brook Ranch's phone number to dispute the charge. At first I left messages on their answering machine. No return calls. Now the answering machine does not pick up but a recording for Avai Systems comes on. Unfortunately, by the time I saw the additional charge the 60 day dispute period through CHASE credit card was over. I would like to be refunded for the $250 that was incorrectly charged to my credit card. As for the stay: -RUDE FRONT DESK GIRL -INDOOR POOL OVER POWERING CHLORINE SMELL -OUTDOOR POOL CLOSED THE ENTIRE STAY -YOU CANNOT CHECK IN UNTIL EXACTLY 4pm. NO EXCEPTION. -HAD TO ASK FOR MORE TOILET PAPER AND TOWELS
