What a wonderful experience to stay at this bed and breakfast. It was extremely good value at $100 for the charming and capacious blue suite. The bed was very comfortable and the room charmingly appointed. The same is true of the downstairs common rooms. My hosts, Neil and Jane, were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They have a guest computer for those travelling without a laptop - though also wifi capability - which I used extensively. The breakfast was large, varied and of very high quality: an egg, sausage and onion casserole, apple pancakes and a pastry or muffin. There were also snacks and tea or coffee to be had through the day. I stayed there the night before and the night after a five night monastic retreat at Holy Cross monastery. I strongly recommend this absolutely first-rate hostelry.
Cab fare from Poughkeepsie railway station shouldn't be more than about $16. There are no metres on local cabs, so negotiate up front. I can recommend B&B taxi very highly: prompt, professional and reasonable on three different fares.
