What a wonderful weekend getaway! We spent last Saturday night at The Sleepy Valley Inn in Warwick NY. Although it was a holiday weekend, John the owner graciously allowed us to have a one night stay, instead of the 2 night minimum for the holiday, and I’m so happy he did!
Before checking in my boyfriend and I stopped at the Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo NY (only a short drive away). It was both our first time there, and I highly recommend it. We bought our tickets at Walgreens for a discounted price and spent the first half of the day there. We threw axes, and challenged each other with our accuracy of archery [I won :) ], we saw a knife show, I got my hair braided and we drank delicious mead.
After the fair, we called John and Peggy (the owners of the Inn) to see if it was ok to check in. They run the local restaurant/ bar in town (Yesterday’s) and met us at the Inn a few minutes later. John showed us to our room, The Murphy Room, and took our breakfast and coffee order for the next morning. We mentioned to John that we would be going to the Drive-In that night and he told us to stop by the restaurant to pick up free tickets. What a great bonus!
The room was awesome! Huge hot tub for two, gas fireplace (didn’t get a chance to use it), nice flat screen HD TV with almost every cable channel you would want to watch. Even though this is a bed and breakfast, we had a lot of privacy. We didn’t see any other guests, and our delicious, made to order breakfast was at a table for two.
There is also a computer and phone available for complimentary guests use in the common area of the Inn.
After getting settled, we stopped by Yesterday’s and had a couple of drinks, the staff was very nice and the crowd was mixed with families having dinner and locals having a drink at the bar. Although we would have loved to have had dinner here, we had already made reservations at Coquito, another restaurant in town (see my review). So after thanking John and Peggy for the Drive Inn passes we took a short walk through town to Coquito. After dinner we went to the movies and then home for a soak in the huge hot tub.
As promised by John, our coffee was waiting for us in the morning in the dining area. We woke up early and went for a walk before breakfast. When we came back John and Peggy were there with our home made gourmet breakfast.
We have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts over the years; however I can honestly say that this was the best overall experience we have had. I highly recommend staying here.
After checking out we went to the Warwick Winery. While there went apple picking, listened to live music and relaxed on the grass with a bottle of Harvest Moon Wine and enjoyed our day.
