I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again. I was transported back to another era. The room was well kept, clean and inviting. I haven't slept that well in a while! Nice firm mattress, soft fluffy pillows, really comfortable.

We transacted all the reservation/deposit work on email and phone quite easily. Ms Costello wants checks for payment, and I use checks, so it was very easy. We coordinated arrival times so she could let us in. Very lovely bedroom in a single family house. We were in Poughkeepsie for activities at Vassar so this was an easy drive. Plenty... More

We had the chance to to enjoy a wonderful few days at Costello's Guest House in Hyde Park. Patsy is a great host, and as President of the local historical society, she can tell you all about the area's rich history. Staying here was like staying with a family member, and the lodging rate was about 1/2 of other local... More

A most enjoyable time was had discovering Hyde Park, its historical sights and the Culinary Institute. Patsy Costello has a charming guesthouse and is a wonderful hostess. My friend stayed in the canopy bedroom room and I enjoyed the nautical. Both rooms were comfortable, clean and fresh. Patsy is a great source of information from where to go, to facts... More

Wow, so comfortable and charming and clean plus a canopy bed. This is the home of longtime socially active locals, it is NOT a hotel but it has all the amenities such as wifi and tea, so you can keep working in a quiet corner or in your room. Certainly, I recommend you arrange to stay there whenever visiting the... More

Staying at this lovely house was a real treat in so many ways. It was very comfortable, like being at home, and it was well-located -- easy to access all of the places of historic interest, as well as the Culinary Institute of America. The best part of the visit was our time spent talking with Patsy Costello, who knew... More

Patsy was a very nice host. She was very friendly and was happy to share her knowledge and experience with the FDR family. She also recommended great places for food. The room we stay in was cozy and quiet, which was perfect for a weekend away from NYC. Hyde park is fantastic getaway destination for history lovers.

I've enjoyed this home-away-from-home twice while visiting Hyde Park. The two rental rooms are decorated simply and are very clean and well supplied. A small connecting bonus room serves both with a comfy chair, good lightening, refrigerator, and good-sized desk. Mrs. Costello chats with guests, giving good dining suggestions, and lots of welcome history of the area. The Guest House... More

Patsy Costello is a Roosevelt historian--she knows all the secrets that books don't tell you. Her guest house is clean and pleasant but the real treasure is Patsy herself. So if you want an educated chat about FDR et al., Costello's is the place to stay.

We rented both rooms in Patsy's guest house. They were very comfortable. The location was perfect for attending parents weekend at a local college. The house was built in the 1800s and is nicely kept and very clean. We loved taking with Patsy about Hyde Park and the Roosevelt's. She is a wealth of knowledge and quite a woman herself.... More
