We had a wonderful stay at the Mountain View Retreat run by Patricia Heller, who is a gracious host. The location is superb, and the breakfast is both bountiful and delicious. We highly recommend the Mountain View Retreat!

Patricia Heller has a beautiful property in the Hudson River valley. There is a lovely view of the Catskills and a serene yard on 20 acres with paths to hike. The breakfast was wonderful, the house was immaculate with interesting antiques. There are plenty of places to visit in the area. Patricia's attention to details and hosting were memorable! We...

Patricia makes the best breakfast every morning and serves so elegantly on her lovely and varied dishes. We loved the eggs, scones, and really everything. She is an amazing and gracious... More

MVR is a multi-faceted "experience". The location is quiet and exceedingly beautiful. From the master suite your window looks out across the valley to the Catskills. Winding through the 20 acres of property there are lovely and beautifully maintained wooded paths that take you to secluded spots for quiet moments of enjoyment of the beauty of what nature offers.

I stayed at Mountain View Retreat while attending a 3 day workshop at Omega in Rhinebeck. The whole weekend - including the B&B and Patricia's hospitality - was a perfect get away from daily life. Mountain View is on a beautiful piece of land with a true mountain view. The rooms are cozy, the food delicious. But the best treat... More
