It could host up to 1,200 guests and was an extremely popular destination for New York City dwellers, as well as, visitors from foreign cities. Two presidents, Ulysses S. Grant and Chester A. Arthur, spent time at the Hotel Kaaterskill. Unfortunately, the hotel burned down in September, 1924 when soap-making employees accidentally started a fire.
