We have been staying at The Rhinecliff a since 2010...the year we got married there! The rooms are beautiful (we've stayed in three different ones), decorated simply, with modern, high-end details that are more than appreciated. The bathrooms feature deep whirlpool tubs, which is the perfect way to end your day after a long hike ( or an afternoon spent... More

After some discussion, we decided to elope on the day we met three years ago. We searched for places to go but have had such a harsh winter that we were concerned about the weather. We finally found The Rhinecliff through another elopement website and looked at the rooms. I fell in love with the premier suite and the 200... More

I cannot say enough good about the Rhinecliff, from their amazing rooms (each of which seems to be unique) to their wonderful bar to the attention of their staff. Located quite near the Rhinecliff train station, it was quite convenient for my wife to meet me there for the weekend after a long week of business in the Hudson Valley.

My daughter recently had her wedding at the Rhinecliff, a small intimate wedding. She wanted a beautiful place, and good food. She received both, and more. The Rhinecliff is exquisite. It is right on the Hudson river, and the ice floes were beautiful to look at, especially from the many windows and french doors in the banquet room that is... More

Upon arrival, my wife and I was warmly greeted by the owner/manager. Our room was beautiful and extremely comfortable. The River/Valley views from our windows and balcony were magnificent and breathtaking. Coffee, tea, juices and pastries were always available. The quaint and charming town of Rhinebeck is a short 5 minute drive and there are many historical and recreational attractions... More

we really had a nice time here. It is off season, so until Saturday there was no breakfast served --but we knew that ahead of time. We just went into Reinbeck and had great late Breakfast at Bread Alone. Saturday morning we did have a lovely breakfast at the restaurant included in the price of the room. The rooms look... More
