Spent four days at Whistle Wood and enjoyed the fresh breakfasts, chatting with very informed and helpful Maggie, eating from the heaping dessert table and having lovely evening fires. The farm has beautiful sweeping pastures with cows, horses and chickens - peaceful, beautiful trails - idyllic. The town of Rhinebeck is surprisingly close and is peaceful and quaint. Would definitely... More

We were staying there with 5 people about a year ago and truly loved the place. It is a bit out of town in a beautiful tranquil part of the Hudson Valley. The house itself is a quaint farmhouse and the owner Maggie has such a good taste for furniture and antiques! You can see everywhere in the house that... More

Just spent 3 nights / 4 days at WhistleWood with my daughter and it more than met our expectations. Maggie, the owner, was not present during our stay, but Barbara, the host, went above and beyond to make sure that our time at WhistleWood was relaxing and comfortable. Because the B&B part of the main lodge is separate from the... More

What a lovely place! The entire place is lovely. Marrige, Whistlewood's host - is a great lady. gracious, sweet, kind, funny - and a great host. The place is warm and welcoming. The main house, which we only went through twice - once for breakfast and once when we first arrived, is cozy and very Adirondack style comfortable. The breakfast... More

Perfect place to spend a weekend. Maggie, the owner, is a warm and gracious host. The rooms are clean and comfortable, ours had a beautiful fireplace and sitting area. The grounds and animals are beautiful. We even had a chance to feed the chickens and horses. Breakfast was amazing. Maggie used the fresh eggs from her chickens to make a... More

Perfect weekend respite from Manhattan! This place is wonderful...quaint, cozy, charming! We pulled up to check in and the owner, Maggie, greeted us at the door....by our first names!! As we walked in she offered us fresh baked cookies! I was an immediate fan! It's close enough to the wineries as well as the cute little town of Rhinebeck. The... More

We just got back from a 2 night stay at this amazing B&B and we can't recommend it enough! We were looking for a place to stay during Thanksgiving weekend and it was a last minute decision so we were thrilled that there was an available room for us! This place is just a little over an hour and a... More

I chose Whistlewood because I needed a place to stay while I attended a three-day program in early October at nearby Omega Institute. I was extremely pleased with my stay and will certainly return. Maggie and her staff are great. They are caring and attentive. Everything is there that you need (or, if not, they'll supply it). I stayed in... More

We enjoyed Maggie's hospitality and the farm from our very first visit. Every year since that time four years ago has been better than the last even with the high bar set the first year. This year was a true "Shangri-La" experience. The new front deck and stylish new red roof added to the comfortable atmosphere already present in abundance.

The owner is super nice and provides a fantastic breakfast. She is also a very good baker (cakes and pies generously available). Property is very pretty, with horses grazing in the fields by the house. Short drive to Rhinebeck. Our second visit to this very comfortable and inviting B&B.
