“Very elegant home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2010

My husband and I stayed at Rock Hall this week and loved it! The house is absolutely beautiful, the decorating is outstanding. The house is full of things to do, fitness room, movie room, billiard room, game room, etc. Our bedroom was just spectacular and the grounds are beautiful as well, great pool, tennis courts and walking trail.
Michael, the owner, was one of the nicest hosts we've ever encountered at an inn. He made us great cocktails and the best guacamole we've ever had! We really enjoyed talking with him, he's very interesting.
Awesome breakfast, again, the best we've ever had at an inn. Healthy and delicious.
A stay at this inn is a must!!

The term "bed and breakfast" does not do Rock Hall justice. It would be like calling Times Square as merely the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue. Especially the bed in Chamber 2, which is so soft and luxurious and the breakfast that is meticulously prepared in a grand dining room under a tremendous chandelier. Our group of women chose Rock Hall to celebrate our birthdays. Our expectations were far exceeded by the scale and luxury of the estate. We had the entire run of the mansion, from the billiard room to the screening room, complete with old school style popcorn and candy. The fireplace is so large that we all fit INSIDE! What a perfect setting for late afternoon cocktails and snacks lovingly prepared by the innkeepers. Stella and Michael made sure that every aspect of our stay was perfect, from our restaurant selections to spa appointments. Take your girlfriends and plan your visit to Rock Hall for a girls' weekend you will never forget! I am hoping to visit again in the summer to take advantage of the inground, heated pool and hot tub plus tennis courts. What B&B has all this??? And no hotel has this level of personal service! Book your rooms and you will not be disappointed.

We have had the pleasure of staying at Rock Hall for both summer and winter weekends. Everything said previously is true and more. The accommodations are luxurious and tastefully done, the grounds are magnificent summer and winter, the service provided by hosts Michael and Stella both professional and friendly, and the breakfast unique and delicious. Whether you want to swim, ski, antique, shop in Berkshires, watch a movie in the in-house theater room, listen to music in town or just sit by the fire and read, Rock Hall is a great place to stay. For everything Rock Hall offers, it is priced fairly compared to most other comparable places.

Many times when I have stayed in bed and breakfasts I have been disappointed by the overly cute atmosphere. This a historic property that has been lovingly restored with a restrained hand. Run quite professionally, the welcome is warm but I did not feel like I was staying n someones house. furniture, sheets, amenities were all of the highest quality. We feel asleep to a roaring fire at our feet in our spacious room. I'd love to see the extensive grounds and pool in the warmer months!

My boyfriend and I visited 19 Rock Hall Road last winter. We had seen a review on NY1 and afterward decided on a spur of the moment getaway weekend. Firstly, the house is beautiful. We were greeted by owners Stella and Michael, a lovely couple from NYC, who proceeded to give us a tour of the home. Their attention to detail in the restoration of this home was amazing and you could see their passion. Our room was so comfortable, the house enormous - we watched a movie in the private screening room, played in the billiard room and generally felt at home.

Stella and Michael were super helpful in exploring the surrounding area, especially directing us to some amazing restaurants. We had to leave pretty early Sunday morning, so we didn't stay for breakfast, but Stella sent us off with a boxed lunch. So sweet! And included in that boxed lunch was THE most amazing gravlox sandwich (Michael's specialty). Ridiculously good. We'll definitely be back.

Our jaws dropped when we pulled up in front of Stella and Michael's home. It is stately yet inviting. Being mid-November, most of the trees had lost their leaves, but it was still absolutely gorgeous. The pool was closed for the season, too (all the more reason to come back in the summer!). The hosts are both wonderful, and instantly made us feel welcome. We went for a walk through the woods and picked apples from the orchard on the property, then followed the directions we were given to a local waterfall that was beautiful. After that we headed to Infinity Hall for dinner (a short drive of less than 5 or 10 miles and I highly recommend it!) and then back to the property to watch a movie in the little movie room. Michael was heading back into the city and Stella was meeting friends for dinner, so we were entrusted with their lovely home. It felt like we were staying at a family friend's house. We stayed in Chamber 2, which you must stay in if it's available. We were shown the other rooms and they were nice, but there was no complarison. This was apparently the hosts' bedroom before the property was converted and it must have been hard for them to give it up! Looking up at the sky from the porch off of our room we were able to see more stores than I've ever seen in my life. The bathroom is to die for. The shower has a crazy 'Saw'-looking contraption that is supposed to spray water on you from every angle. It sounds more appealing than it actually is though. Instead, we soaked in the huge claw-footed tub. There are three-way mirrors in the bathroom that are a nice touch. Breakfast was perfect, consisting of housemade gravlax, a variety of cheeses, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and breads, olives, homemade granola, and a breakfast strata, plus more. This was my boyfriend's first experience at a bed & breakfast and I told him he cannot let this be the standard. This stay was unlike any other B&B experience I've had and I loved every second of it (though it is a bit on the pricey side). But I can't rave enough about our stay. You will not be disappointed!

One of the nicest things about Rock Hall is that you immediately feel you've been transported back in time. A beautifully preserved Mizner home built in the early 20th century, the owners updated the place preserving the original detail, using the highest quality materials. From the wallpaper to the light fixtures, everything was done tastefully and beautifully.

New to innkeeping, Stella and Michael really add the extra touches that perhaps a less enthusiastic host would ignore. Arriving Friday night, Michael fixed us both a cocktail and Stella had written out the directions to the restaurant we were eating at that night. We some time chatting with Michael, which was interesting and in my view, is the point of staying in an inn, where conversations with guests and in this case, the owner, become a part of the memory of the place.

Rock Hall is really beautiful. The amenities are cool--gorgeous pool, ping-pong and pool rooms and even a screening room for movies with an old-fashioned popcorn maker! Loved Rock Hall!!
