I've started writing this review a few times now, I just can't seem to get the words right. This was the BEST get away I've had in... well, maybe ever! I decided to take my boyfriend away for his birthday and did a lot of research on Bed and Breakfasts around the NYC. The photos and reviews here were exceptional so I decided to take a chance. I tell you something, I was not disappointed. My expectations were beyond exceeded. We arrived late, and knew we would so Chuck, the innkeeper, had a key waiting for us, with perfect directions leading us to our room, the Rose Room. It was beautiful, and comfortable. We read through the history of the house, and watched a little TV before bed. I slept like a rock. Woke up to the gorgeous autumn mountain side and an AMAZING breakfast. The breakfast was cooked to order, with juice, fruit, and a baked good. The house is gorgeous, pool table, games, sitting room, fountain outside, firepit! It was as cozy, No! Cozier than being at home. Chuck was so helpful, and kind. Matt as well. We were welcomed like family and I really feel like I know them. I honestly can't wait to go back. And we WILL be back. This is the perfect, perfect getaway for any time of year. Right on Hunter Mountain. They've got a very very green operations going on as well. Shampoo, conditioner, and soap in a large container in the shower, which had amazing water pressure and temperature. The room was nice and warm, and had a TON of extra blankets if we would have gotten cold. I could go on forever, it was the best get away. And I recommend it wholeheartedly!
