“Simply Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

I have stayed in many B&Bs but this is by far the nicest and most welcoming. The proprietors Diane and Michele have created something special in this little gem across from the Vanderbilt Mansion. From the very first phone call, the warmth of their hospitality was apparent and the photos on this site don't even begin to capture how charming the house is. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Kyoto Room, which has a sense of Zen tranquility especially at night when the crickets chirp outside. The 8:30 am breakfasts are early but creative and delicious and get you up and out to enjoy the many sights to see in the area (the strong coffee helps, too!). Our room did not have TV but we did not miss it; the complimentary Wifi is strong and fast. Coffee, tea, and delicious home-baked cookies are available if you want a snack and there are plenty of interesting books on the area and the places the hosts have visited to enjoy. The prices are more than reasonable and the location is very convenient. I love this inn and look forward to coming back in the future.

Oh my, you definitely know how to start our week off on the right note! Thank you for your very kind review, we truly do appreciate the time our guests take to let others know about us. We are most fortunate to have 2 large public rooms for our guests to enjoy after a day of exploring. They are great to relax in, read a great novel (or a good trashy book) and to mingle with the other guests. We are so looking forward to welcoming the both of you back! Have a great fall.

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary there. Everything was perfect. Michele and Diane are lovely hosts. They made us feel really special- like we were part of their family. The coffee is strong and yummy- the grounds are beautiful- the rooms are spacious and comfortable. They helped us make all our reservations for the tours. We had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Outback room. On the 1st floor, bed was comfortable. It was quiet, bathroom was ens...

We hope you don’t mind if we share that this was your 1st B&B experience and as such we are always hopeful to make converts to a better way to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting & talking with you. We hope your little “table gem” looks fabulous in your home....…though we thought it looked pretty good being stored in our living room during your stay. We wish you both a good school year and hope our paths will cross again.

We spent two nights at the Journey Inn. It was a beautifully maintained and cozy home. Innkeepers Diane and Michelle were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. They were very knowledgeable about the area its history. They took time to answer questions, chat with us and give recommendations and suggestions for things to do without being overbearing. Breakfast was delicious. Hot and cold beverages were available all day, with a few munchies in the evening. The inn is very close to all the Hyde Park attractions.

As an innkeeper, you always worry about meeting expectations. We are very happy we didn’t disappoint you. This is such an exciting and fun area to explore; it has something for everyone, no matter the season. Glad you enjoyed our breakfasts; they really are fun to make.
Make sure you send us photos of your “little one” later this fall! Our best to you both.

Two lovely nights, two lovely mornings punctuated by great food and great coffee (the only place I have ever been that makes coffee as strong as we do at home). Beautiful home in an ideal Hyde Park location, just across the street from the Vanderbilt Mansion. Diane and Michele strike the right mix of graciousness, humor and respect for privacy. Rooms are well appointed, immaculate and full of all of the amenities, books and resources needed for a first rate visit to Hyde Park.

When we opened our bed and breakfast, my sister warned me that I would have to learn to make the coffee weaker and not as strong as I liked it. I said I couldn’t be the only one that loves a great cup of strong coffee in the morning. Fast forward 15 years later, rarely has a guest diluted it with some hot water! Our neighbors across the street offer a free music concert every other Wed evening in the summer. It’s a lovely way to lull away a summer evening, bring your own blanket, a picnic dinner, a bottle of wine and enjoy the music!

My husband and I had only one night in Hyde Park. We learned that we should have been there at least 4 days. So much to see. Diane and Michelle with the perfect hostess--funny and outgoing. The Mombasa Room was so comfortable; highly recommend it. Breakfast is served family style. Although we were skeptical of this, we ended up loving it.

You discovered one of the beauties of a family style breakfast….....you get to share information & suggestions with the other guests, about what there is to see & do in the area. And all of this happens with your morning coffee! We are happy you enjoyed and were comfortable in The Mombasa Room, it is a popular room. We look forward to welcoming you back for another visit and perhaps this time you will be able to spend a bit more time.

We spent our anniversary weekend at the Journey Inn B & B. The innkeepers Diane and Michelle are the perfect hosts. They made us feel so welcome and special. Diane announced the days breakfast menu and gave everyone an update on the weather and what sites were open. They gave us great dinner suggestions as well. Our room was very nicely decorated and oh so comfortable. A perfect Hudson Valley location makes it an excellent choice to see the surrounding area.

Thank you for spending your anniversary weekend with us, a little different then 32 years ago, we bet! We did try and encourage you to go to Hyde Park’s Drive-In, climb into the back seat, assuring you we would not ask what movie was playing..…. though we all had a great laugh….. cooler, older & wiser heads prevailed! We thank you again for finding and staying with us.

My husband, daughter and I stayed in the English Suite for a 2 night mini-vacation. Diane and Michelle couldn't have been better hosts. Both are warm and friendly and full of great suggestions. The inn is perfectly situated in Hyde Park and a nice quiet place to relax after touring the local sights. Diane and Michelle made us delicious breakfasts and left cookies and cold drinks out during the day. Many thanks for making our vacation a memorable one. We will definitely recommend this B & B to our friends!

We are always very appreciative when guests take the time to write a review, we thank you!
With each passing year that we are here, we are ever so grateful for our wonderful location. We are close to all of the sites in town but we truly are in the heart of the Hudson Valley. So for those fortunate enough to have their vacation in the Hudson Valley, we are in a great jumping off spot, to go north, south east or west, most things are a stones throw away.
Your family is delightful and we hope we will have the opportunity to also meet your son the next time you come to Hyde Park
