My partner booked this B&B last minute for the Labor Day weekend which turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Like the other couples staying there, we brought our dog. Pickles, a miniature poodle who never gets to run off-leash in the concrete jungles of the city, at first seemed at a loss to all that beautifully manicured and fenced-in lawn to run around. As most other reviewers commented, Bernetta is very warm and friendly and prepares delicious breakfasts with freshly baked goods and seasonal fruits.
Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable with all the touches that make it homey and welcoming. We also appreciated having privacy and separation from the other bedrooms. The location was ideal to go exploring for a relaxed but romantic getaway. One night we visited the nearby Mountain Brauhaus for a hearty German meal and the next we drove to New Paltz for a delicious Italian dinner. We hiked the well-maintained and large Minnewaska State Park with Pickles who loved the whole adventure. We ran out of time to visit the nearby lake and paddle around in Bernetta's boats and also to try a dip in the salt water pool. We'll have to do so when we return another weekend.
