Catskill Confidential
AAA Car & Travel

“Located 300 feet above the Delaware River in Barryville is a five-room ECCE B&B with a large outdoor deck to enjoy breakfast and the nightly sunset. It’s located on 60 private acres so there are plenty of trails to hkie and bird watch (bald eagles, scarlet tanagers, etc.).”

Catskill Confidential
Catskills Confidential

“Truly a Site to Behold... 300 feet over a valley. Its not unusual for resident raptors, eagles, ospreys and hawk to float at eye level.”

Connections Magazine

“Making the ‘green’ choice to shop local – and support sustainable local economies -- starts at home and continues when you are on vacation.”


“Ecce is Latin for “behold,” and the word fits: from a seemingly precarious perch on a ridge overlooking the Delaware, travelers get a true eagle’s eye view of the river’s majesty from every room.”

Fordor’s Travel Intelligence

“The truly remote, gay-owned Ecce Bed & Breakfast (rates from $200/night), though, is perhaps cream of the crop. The five-room hideaway is perched 400-feet high on a bluff overlooking Delaware River where eagles soar through the sky. Don’t let “B&B” fool you: it feels more like an intimate, boutique hotel with contemporary furnishings in all five guestrooms—some with private terraces or whirlpool tubs—and impressive antique pieces and local artwork in the public areas.”

Frommer’s New York State
High above the Delaware River, in the southwesternmost extreme of the Catskills, this small, personal inn is all about serenity and the stupendous, unending views, which make guests feel like they’re sleeping in the clouds. Situated on a bluff 300 feet above the river on 60 acres of private woods, this is truly a place to escape to. Take hikes, spot eagles, and enjoy some downtime. Although it may seem that you’re miles from anywhere, your’re just a short drive from the new museum and concert pavilion at Bethel Woods. Gourmet country breakfasts can be enjoyed on a the deck (one of several) overlooking the river. If it’s view your’re after, settle into the turret of the Sunrise Room. Rooms are nicely appointed, but not fussy, and the two hosts are gracious and helpful.
*Finds rating: Special finds—those places only insiders know about.

A pictorial review of 10 inns with prime fall folliage viewing
“You can thank the inn’s location on a bluff 300 feet above the Upper Delaware River for the spectacular panoramic views of the Pennsylvania and New York mountain ranges. Savor your morning meal on one of ECCE Bed & Breakfast’s porches overlooking the river valley while admiring the reds, oranges and yellows.”

“ECCE” is Latin for “behold,” and the ECCE B&B in Barryville suits its name-it's on 60 acres of rocky bluff 300 feet above a gorgeous bend in the Delaware. Be sure to behold the breakfast.

“Highly recommend this B&B in Barryville NY, called ECCE. Perched high on a hilltop, every room has breathtaking views of the Delaware River and has interesting areas to hike. The hosts are really fun and offer great advice on charming restaurants and things to do in the area.” – Carol B, NYC, guest

“ECCE Bed and Breakfast, on a promontory overlooking the Delaware River in Barryville, NY. The innkeepers, Kurtis Kreider and Alan Rosenblatt, have smartly picked a location...”

Passport Magazine
Passport Magazine
“While a B&B, it feels more like a boutique hotel. Expect contemporary furnishings in all five guestrooms, some of which have private terraces or whirlpool tubs, as well as rotating local art like painints, sculpture, pottery, and some impressive antique pieces.”

Passport Magazine Fall 2013
“The Catskills have long provided escape for artists and independent spirits.”

“B&B stands for “bed and breakfast,” of course. But the combo could also stand for “beautiful and breathtaking”— especially if you’re talking about ECCE B&B in upstate New York. ”

Terry Teachout / Long Distance, Please

“As for me, I’ve been tearing around America ever since the Broadway season ended--but not this week. Mrs. T, spotting four dark days on my calendar, suggested that we might want to spend them taking a work-free mini-vacation at Ecce Bed and Breakfast, our beloved and indispensable Delaware River retreat. That sounded good to me, so we drove to Ecce on Monday and proceeded to do...nothing. Lots of nothing.” 2012 Visit
Terry Teachout / Up and Around the Bend

“Ecce is, if anything, an even more important part of my life with Mrs. T, for we spent part of our honeymoon there, and since then we’ve made a special point of going back at least once a year.” 2011 Visit
Terry Teachout / Time off and (on)

“I didn’t take any time off this summer, so last week I compensated myself for my excessive industry by spending three nights with Mrs. T at Ecce Bed and Breakfast, the peaceful retreat in the southern Catskills where we spent part of our honeymoon four years ago and about which I’ve written more than once in this space. Since the point of taking time off is to do nothing, I don't have any leisurely activities to describe. We slept late, we took a long afternoon drive and looked at the autumn foliage, we sat on the terrace and looked at the Upper Delaware River, we ate a very nice dinner in the quaint little town of Narrowsburg, and we watched a couple of movies.
Oh, yes--I wrote the first draft of a new play. From scratch. 2009 Visit

“I can’t remember the last time I felt so rested. I knew I was tired, but I didn't fully understand how tightly wrapped I was until the knots came undone and I started to relax.” 2009 Visit
Terry Teachout / About Last Night

“The photo on the left is the view from the hammock in the backyard of Ecce, which overlooks the Upper Delaware River. Some pictures lie, but this one tells the plain truth: Ecce is really that pretty, and that serene.”

The Wall Street Journal, 2008 Visit
Terry Teachout /Arts Critic

“The picturesque Ecce, whose Web site accurately describes it as being “perched on a bluff 300 feet above the Upper Delaware River,” is the place we like best other than home, not least because Alan Rosenblatt goes out of his way to pamper his guests.”

Wall Street Journal, 2005 Visit
Terry Teachout /Arts Critic

“For once, the Web site understates the case: my room had a huge picture window, and I’ve never seen a more spectacular view.”
