My dear friend and I left our husbands in NYC and came to stay at the inn for 3 nights this July 30th, 2014. Our Helen & Percy room was beautiful and cozy and the breakfasts the most memorable. The innkeepers, Holly and Bert, charming people. But unfortunately the financial arrangements gave a lot to be desired, if not downright... More

As the old adage goes, no good deed goes unpunished. These were very nice ladies and we enjoyed having them stay with us. This guest is indeed confused though. The guests made their original reservation and contractual agreement related to their stay through a third party.....such as hotels.com, bedandbreakfast.com, or the like. Therefore we NEVER charged anyone's American Express card.... More

My daughter was the Maid of Honor in a wedding near the Inn. It was the perfect place to stay. The room was beautifully appointed, cozy with all the amenities you would find in a luxury hotel. There is a charming living room and a fabulous front porch. Each room is unique and decorated handsomely with antiques. Breakfast is delicious,... More

I spent two nights with my family at the Van Winkle Inn four people in all during the Christmas - New Year week. We skied at nearby Windham Mountain and relaxed in the evening after enjoying dinner at one of the excellent local restaurants. Each morning before heading off to ski we were served an awesome full breakfast by the... More

This was a wonderful group that stayed with us! We look forward to them being with us again this summer when Saratoga Raceway opens for the 2014 season. It is so nice to welcome "frequent flyers" back to the Inn. Please don't forget that you are entitled to a 10% discount when you stay twice in the same twelve month... More

We had a great time! This bed and breakfast was so beautiful and cozy! Our hosts Holly and Burt were just great! We had Gabe's room and found it perfect. The breakfast was scrumptious. The authentic decorum, fireplace, porch, sherry, and good company made this stay a memory making experience. Susan and Dan C.

Holly and I will always remember these wonderful folks! We all enjoyed such a great time with the entire group from this weekend. Such fun and laughter around the dining table! A special anniversary for the two of you at our home topped it all off for us. It is why we "built" it. Thanks for helping us make it... More

We only had the one night at the Inn but it was great. It made for a great stop on the drive to Montreal. We had a late arrival after driving and stopping for dinner at a lovely restaurant that Holly recommended near by. While everyone had gone to bed, there was a note directing us to our rooms where...

We had a wonderful two night stay in the cottage and enjoyed a wonderful gourmet breakfast in the Inn. The cottage, Inn and grounds are lovely, well maintained with a wonderful attention to detail of period art and decor. Very comfortable beds you just sink into. We are planning on coming back soon. I haven't stayed at a better B&B.

We love the VanWinkle Inn. It's like a home away from home. Each room is nicer then the next. Everything about the Inn is spectacular. There are special touches everywhere. It's also pet friendly.
