My Husband surprised me with a weekend at the Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa for my birthday. Everything was absolutely wonderful. The grounds are gorgeous, from the llama pen, to the albino peacock, to the two ponds filled with koi, to the swans and geese, to the falls themselves and the short hike down to the hudson. We stayed in the Juniper Room - great bed, electric fireplace, jacuzzi and large balcony overlooking the gorgeous grounds. Romantic...luxurious...cozy.
The spa is absolutely lovely. A modern addition to the traditional grounds, it is a glass enclosed cube filled with a sauna, steam room and "endless" pool. We both had fantastic massages, and when we weren't in the steam room we sat and watched the trees, the birds, the hudson....
And wonderful as the room, grounds and spa were, the best part may have been the staff. On our first day there daily tea consisted of a quiche (looked great- didn't try it) wonderful home made chocolate chip cookies, and the best apple pie my husband had ever had. We mentioned to our wonderful inn keeper CJ how much he loved the pie, and sunday- despite the fact that we were the only guests staying that night - we came home from the spa to discover an apple pie waiting just for us, complete with two forks. And later that night as we headed out to Beso in New Paltz for dinner (incredible)- Innkeeper Bernadette handed us directions to the restaurant that she had personally typed out for us.
I can't say enough about how fantastic our weekend was. Buttermilk Falls exceeded all of our expectations. An absolutely perfect weekend.
