Howe Caverns has a small (very small) motel on the property, and we have reserved some rooms. For now, though, those few rooms are set aside for the Bridal Party and “extended” Bridal Party so we have a place on site to prepare for the wedding. It’s likely we may have openings, so we’ll let you know.
However, there are plenty of places to stay less than 10 minutes from the Caverns, and they are near dining options, gas stations and other conveniences. A block of rooms has been reserved at a reduced cost of $95/night for either a King or Double for both 9/14 and 9/15 at the nearby Super 8 Motel in Cobleskill. The Motel is at 955 East Main Street, I-88 Exit 22 Rt 7 West, Cobleskill, NY 12043. It is a little over 6 miles from Howe Caverns, and is practically a straight shot up Route 7 until you are near the caves. (Complete directions will be provided in the invitations). Their phone number is 518-234-5888. If you’d like to see what they offer, you can visit their website here: http://bit.ly/Super8Cobleskill. If you wish to reserve there, call the number and say you’d like to make a reservation for the Kristi Petersen/Nathan Schoonover Wedding; more will be added to the block as needed. Rooms will be held there until August 14, 2012.
There is also Best Western Plus in Cobleskill which is loaded with amenities, and for those of you who are members of BW’s Rewards program, yes, they participate. We do not have any rooms on reserve there, but they, too, are also on Route 7 at 121 Burgin Drive, Cobleskill, NY 12043. You can make a reservation there by calling (518) 234-4321, and/or visit their website at http://www.bestwesterncobleskill.com/ for pricing.
If you’d prefer to indulge yourselves in a little bit of the Leatherstocking Region’s rural charm and take things at a slower pace, there is The Gables Bed & Breakfast Inn, a pair of Victorian Manors right in the heart of the Village of Cobleskill at 436 West Main Street. Their website is http://sites.google.com/site/johnod/thegablesbed&breakfastinn and their phone number is 518-234-4467.
