My husband and I came to visit our son and his wife in NYC. We wanted to get them out of the city and decided to stay here for the weekend. I made the reservation over the phone with no problems. What a great location! Caldwell house is up on a slight hill overlooking the river. The place is gorgeous... More

I'll start by saying I love reading reviews on sites for food and lodging and almost never write them. This time I had to. The Caldwell House is simply amazing in every way. It's an old estate with several houses on the property that have been modernly renovated while still keeping the classic charm. Simply put, the owner's, John and... More

Wow, thanks so much for taking the time to post your review! It is particularly special to us knowing that since it is your super busy tax season you have just about no time on your hands to do anything. We are so happy to have been able to provide you with that critical break. As we discussed, I started... More

My wife and I had the most wonderful stay at Caldwell House this week, We decided to spend the night to celebrate my birthday. The Inn Keepers, Dena and John, were most gracious and we immediately felt at home. They are incredibly down to earth and went out of their way to ensure that my stay was memorable. The B&B... More

I never post on TA, but rely heavily on the reviews before I stay anywhere. That is why I decided to post for this property. It was fantastic! I have stayed an many B&Bs, but I must say that this was the CLEANEST place I have ever stayed!!! Many older homes and B&Bs suffer from "creepy" corners or dingy upholstery.... More

You have made our staff's day/week/month!!! They take great pride int he work they do and it is so, so nice when a guest recognizes it. - Thank you!

The stay was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. My only wish is that I was there longer. I spend the 1st day of my New York trip in the city, and heading out to the B&B on the 2nd day was perfect! The grounds were beautiful, the rooms were cozy and so quaint, and the staff was amazing.

We wish you could have stayed longer, too! And if you liked the grounds in winter - just wait to see what they look like in spring, summer, and fall. We are really blessed here in the Hudson Valley with some of the very best nature has to offer in the way of scenery and views. We certainly hope to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at the Caldwell House last weekend. John and Dena were so welcoming and went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful from the very start.

We came here to escape the hustle bustle of the city for a night. It was an easy train ride from Penn Station to the Salisbury-Mills stop. John picked us up! We checked in and then he drove us to Brotherhood Winery. We took a fun tour and did a tasting. Afterwards, enjoyed a dinner at Vinum Cafe which is... More

So glad we could make your escape from the city relaxing and fun. So often, folks think of the Hudson Valley as a spring/summer/fall destination but the winters up here are lovely, too. In addition, being able to cozy up to a fire in the winter is a really wonderful experience. Stay warm and please come see us again soon,... More

I did not expect such a lovely experience...we arrived at the main house late and Dena handed us a plate of delicious cookies, warm out of the oven. When we arrived at our room, there were additional gluten free cookies and lots of other goodies...LED candles, silk rose pedals on our bed and an immaculate clean, modern, beautifully decorated room....

We can't begin to tell you how nice it feels to be told that we exceeded your expectations! We try very hard to make this an upscale home away from home and it is great to know that we're "getting it right". Thanks, also, for noticing the little things we offer! We look forward to seeing you again real soon!... More

The Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast was the perfect, romantic weekend my now fiance (!) and I were looking for! The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are comfortable, inviting, and we had a hard time finding an excuse to leave (we went for a short walk over the bridge just to say we at least went outside).
