My boyfriend and I drove up to the Sachem Farm for a Saturday-night stay in May. It was a quick drive from NYC, but it felt worlds away. The B&B is a gorgeous old farmhouse with a vineyard on one side and a lake on the other. The interior of the inn is gorgeous and simply, elegantly decorated. The other B&Bs we've been to are generally tacky and overly decorated, but not Sachem. The bedrooms have been preserved in their original style and charm, and the bathrooms have been renovated with new appliances. Our night's stay was so peaceful, and in the morning we were welcomed with a delicious breakfast of yogurt and granola, omelettes, sausage, and coffee. Of all the inns I've been to, Sachem is by far the most restful, welcoming and beautiful. It's the perfect retreat from the bustle of NYC. I'd return anytime!
