The Journey Inn is a wonderfully pleasant B&B just off Route 9 in Hyde Park, NY. The owners and staff are super-nice, the rooms are well-appointed, and the downstairs public rooms are absolutely gorgeous. This is really a fantastic place. My only reservation about giving the hotel the five points it deserves is traffic noise. The hotel overlooks Route 9,... More

Lovely B&B directly across the street from the Vanderbuilt Mansion and only 1 mile from FDR's home ( and the good old fashioned Hyde Park Drive In theater!). Went for a "girls" night away which Valerie so kindly allowed us to reschedule from several months earlier when I had a medical emergency in my family. We were greeted warmly by... More

Inn Keepers are the real deal. Treat you better than family. Immaculate rooms. Delicious breakfast. Great coffee. Great guests. Why would anyone want to stay at Courtyard or Hampton? No AC but the french doors open to the deck. Screens on doors so fresh Hudson Valley air cools off at night. Right across the street from the Vanderbilt Mansion, now... More

What a lovely place! And the best hospitality ever! We came into town to bring my boy to finish paperwork for admissions into CIA. Once Valerie heard our story she accommodated us beyond our expectations!! The property is beautiful! Its directly accross from Vanderbilt Mansion! The breakfast was to die for!

4 months later, I'm still enjoying the memories from this trip. I loved the inn. It felt comfortable and private, and the owners were wonderful. We enjoyed chatting with them, browsing their excellent books and magazines, and the food was delicious! I definitely hope to return in the future!

From the moment we arrived, we felt a welcoming sense from the owners. The home is lovely; each room or suite is different-- I was in two of them, and they were both lovely. I sat in one of the common rooms and read an excellent book about the Vanderbilts. The breakfast was delicious-- hope to go back sometime.

It was wonderful hosting your family for graduation weekend. It can be a hectic time, so we are glad we offered a welcoming environment for you. We are very happy you got to read one of our many books on the area - including the estates, the Vanderbilts, the Roosevelts, the gardens, the little towns, and more. We do hope... More

Went for a "girls trip" with friends to visit CIA, FDR, etc. and stayed here 2 nights. We all loved our rooms and enjoyed everything about the place! I stayed here before with previous owners who were also wonderful and Valerie and Eric have carried on the tradition of hospitality and comfort. They also created some outdoor space which was...

Perfect for visiting Roosevelt historic sites and located directly across the street from the Vanderbilt mansion. Lovely inn. Rooms are large enough, each with a different theme. Hosts are extra helpful. Breakfast eaten all together with other guests at 8:30. Except for self-service drinks, breakfast is served rather than buffet. Hosts did ask about dietary preferences, but I found the... More
