EVERYTHING about our two night stay at Twaalfskill was wonderful! Nancy runs a beautiful bed and breakfast- the house is immaculate and beautifully decorated with great sensitivity to the history of the home. We didn't know how the location was so convenient to so many things to do. We enjoyed several historic homes on both sides of the river, ate... More

I arrived with my daughter in the afternoon. We were planning a culinary weekend, with dinner at the CIA and a CIA course the next day. Nancy suggested a great bike/pedestrian trail and supplied the bikes! The B&B is directly on the trail. The trail is flat and shaded by trees. The best part is that approximately 1 mile down... More

Thank you so much for the review and we truly appreciate all the feedback both negative and positive. We were disheartened to hear your feedback of our breakfast. All of our breakfasts inclusive of the amazing baked goods you described and handmade on the premises. In addition i understand that while we do offer two creative main course selections each...

We had a spectacular weekend for college graduation - and mini-family reunion! The Inn is a lovely, convenient spot for any activity in the Poughkeepsie area, and only 1 1/2 hrs. from the City for a short getaway. Nancy is a wonderful chef - breakfast was a fantastic treat each day: omelets, frittata, etc, plus, delicious baked treats! The Inn... More

My family reserved the entire inn for my son's graduation from Vassar. Nancy was extremely helpful from reservation booking to weekend stay. Wonderful food and hospitality. The physical space is spectacular and only minutes walk to the Hudson. An incredible Inn and find - a must stay.

Let me begin by saying that this review is very long overdue. My fiance and I stayed at this beautiful inn back in August of 2013! We are still thinking about our stay six months later, what does that say? I surprised my fiance with a birthday weekend getaway. Nancy was absolutely fabulous, she helped me by picking up a... More

Our group of 4 spent 4 nights in Highland at the Inn at Twaalfskill. Highland is situated centrally for Valley exploring, and is one mile away from the walking bridge over the Hudson. Our proprietor,, Nancy, was helpful when we wanted ideas for restaurants and sightseeing, and served terrific breakfasts at times we chose. The rooms were very comfortable, and... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely inn for 3 nights and we plan to return. This was our first experience at a B&B and it greatly exceeded our expectations. We stayed in Room 2 which was beautifully appointed with a lovely modern bathroom. We were looking for a mid-Hudson River Valley B&B and thanks to wonderful responses on... More

An ultra comfortable B & B situated in a woodsy setting steps from a rail-trail that leads to the magnificent Walkway Over the Hudson (Poughkeepsie bridge). The Inn at Twaalfskill, in the quiet village of Highland, NY, is an ideal base for a night or two of romance and exploration of the natural, cultural, and historical treasures of the Hudson... More

This was a return trip to the Inn at Twaalfskill for us, and if anything, it was even more relaxing this time around, if that is at all possible. We stayed in Room 2 this time, which is a large room situated at the back corner of the home. Beautiful views and very tranquil. We wanted to take the bed... More

We recently stayed at the Inn and it was wonderful. Nancy is welcoming and makes sure that your every need is met! All the rooms were beautiful and there was a number of places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Breakfasts were amazing! We asked Nancy about places to see and eat in the area and all of her suggestions... More
