David's culinary skills made for the most fabulous breakfasts where our table faced the lovely mountains and gorgeous fall foliage. Justine couldn't have been a better hostess! We stayed in the Violet Room with four poster bed and large bathroom with elegant shower and a jacuzzi.

This lovely B&B has all the makings of a wonderful weekend getaway. Our room (the Violet Room) was delightful, with a large, extremely comfortable 4 poster bed and a wonderful spacious bathroom with over-sized jacuzzi tub and a fantastic steam/rain shower. The breakfasts were as amazing as other reviewers have mentioned. I enjoyed both the best French Toast and the... More

Justine and David were amazing hosts for our Labor Day Weekend. We booked this trip last minute and they (thankfully!) had a room left for us. Justine was so helpful in helping me make a reservation and answered my late phone calls on Thursday night when I had last minute questions. We had a little dog with us and the... More

I'm almost done with my stay at the Smythe House. David and Justine were wonderful Innkeepers. Both are trained chefs and have taken hospitality to the next level. This place is so very comfy and warm, so well spaced and covered in beautiful decorations. The rooms are so very nice and well designed with books and guides to the area... More

We had a wedding in Saugerties and it was a last minute decision to spend the night in town. We were lucky to find a room. Number 3 it was cozy, clean and full of character. We loved the fact that no detail was missing. Coffee maker, water in the refrigerator, nice biscotti in a glass jar, the bathroom has... More

We chose Smythe House aka Barclay Heights B & B for several reasons. One was that Saugerties was a great location for the sites we wanted to visited. Also high on our list was the gourmet breakfast. We like a large breakfast so that we can either skip lunch or eat a very light lunch and allow more time for... More

My wife and I (and now our son) have truly enjoyed the Smythe House properties for the last four years. We have stayed at their proper B&B as well as their separate guest house about two miles away. We love staying in Saugerties and have always enjoyed its peaceful setting. It is also relatively close to Woodstock. One of the... More

We stayed in the Esopus apartment, a one-bedroom apartment just off-property on a creek in the middle of the woods. The grounds included charming seating areas right on the creek, on the back deck, or on a side deck perfect for staring at the water, the changing color of the trees, the fire pit or generally just relaxing. The furnishings... More
