Overlook Mountain House of Yore

Climbing up a mountain in the Catskills for more than 2 miles, one of the last things you might expect to find is a sizeable abandoned resort hotel.  But that is exactly what awaits you near the summit of Overlook Mountain, as partly shown in this photo.  The Overlook Mountain House was likely a pretty cool place in the hey-day of these sort of mountain resorts (late 1800s, early 1900s), and today it is a neat structure to come upon up on top of a mountain.

    • It is definitely cool, and the size of the ruins is particularly impressive. There are even some remaining surrounding structures like old walkways.

  2. Nice shot. That would be a super fun place to explore.

    • Thanks! I personally didn’t explore much because I continued a short distance to the top of this Overlook Mountain where there were amazing panoramic views of the Catskills and Hudson River valley. Maybe next time I’ll look around a bit more!
