The Gateway is 1/4 mile away from the highest ski peak in the Catskill Mountains. In the Summer months, the Belleayre Mountain Conservatory provides and outstanding music program. The white beach sand of Pine Hill Lake is minutes away. Other summer activities include hiking, fishing, kayaking, tubing and quaint mountain hamlets with antique stores.
Autumn is a joy for the sheer beauty nature creates. The winter months offer ski packages at Belleayre Mountain, and spring brings new life to the mountains.
The Gateway house is very kid friendly. We cater to families. You can also bring your dog. We don't have fragile antiques laying around. Instead, we have a big, open common space with a fireplace and lots of games, puzzles, music, and books. We also have night sledding on our lighted sled hill, and an outside smokers deck with the view of the slopes (weather/snow permitting!).
Guests of the Gateway Lodge can now use the Catskill Recreation Center aquatic and fitness center only 10 minutes away in Arkville, NY. Daily rates are only $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12, and includes use of the indoor Olympic size swimming pool and even fitness classes. Of course there are also many swimming holes around the Catskill area for the adventurous, or our close by Pine Hill Beach! Just click on the images on this page for more information!
