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...

We LOVE being outside, so the first thing we did was fix up... More

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

Our stay was memorable. We stayed in the Vanderbilt Suite, which was very comfortable, large, and allowed us to spread out. The shampoos and soaps were of very high quality.
