“A place with charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The minute we walked into Bernetta's we knew this was the place we wanted to be.The house has so much character right out of a storybook. It is fantastic!There is not a spot in that house that Bernetta has not put all her love into.The woodwork she has done in the house is amazing.We woke up to an incredible breakfast. The fact that it is dog friendly made our dog Henry very happy. Bernetta is a wonderful woman who made us feel right at home.

My husband and dog and I spent an absolutely wonderful last-minute weekend at Bernetta's, and plan to return as soon as possible. Bernetta's home is extremely well kept and comfortable, and her decorating style really sets this B&B head and shoulders above any other we have stayed before. She is a woodworker and artist, and has designed and built on to her home over the years, creating a very special and unique place to visit. Her home couldn't be better situated for a getaway; in a weekend we jogged daily to a pond for a swim, hiked through a state park, relaxed and read on her wrap around porch, and ate numerous remarkable meals (all recommendations from Bernetta). The fact that your dog is welcome here too only makes this place that much more dreamy. Thank you Bernetta!

Room Tip: The Wilderness Room was excellent!

The place is lovely, Bernetta the hostess,is warm and welcoming and it's dog friendly. Add to that the opportunity to hike , eat at good restaurants or just relax in her beautiful B&B and you will have an all around enjoyable getaway. Each morning she prepares a wonderful breakfast which is just delicious. Even our dog didn't want to leave. We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Each room has a different decor,so read Bernetta's description and pick what suits you.

Waking up at Bernetta's Place is like being at home. The beds are comfortable and the ambiance is perfect. The best part is you can bring your dogs, which is important to me. The breakfast is five star homemade by Bernetta herself. It's really a must stay if your in the New Paltz area. She knows the area like a true native and will tell you the best hikes, the best place for dining and where to go for a casual stroll. Her companion Lola will welcome you at the gate tail wagging waiting to greet you and show you around. It's truly a wonderful place to stay. So bring your hiking shoes and your best friends and go to Bernetta's place for an truly unforgettable stay, you won't be disappointed.

Loved staying at bernetta's. she is so kind. Her breakfast was delicious. Her property was great for my 2 dogs to run around on. I would definitely come back. She tries her hardest to make you feel welcomed. Thanks for everything Bernett? We really enjoyed our stay.

We actually didn't bring our dog but that was a mistake: she would have loved it. Bernetta was great. Breakfast everyday was delicious. The surroundings are amazing and just being outside was relaxing. Even just two days made me feel as relaxed as some vacations.

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.
