My husband and I took some time off from work to spend an overnight in Hyde Park, particularly to have dinner at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), as well as to do some bicycle riding (for him) and running (for me). The CIA's web site listed some nearby places to stay while visiting, and we wanted a B&B. There were a few that appealed to us, but something kept drawing us back to Le Petit Chateau, and we were thrilled with our choice! The house was comfortable and quaint, on a quiet street only 1/2 mile from the CIA! Mid-afternoon, a couple of hours before our jaunt to the Walkway-Over-the-Husdon (a close drive away), we enjoyed complimentary wine, cheese and crackers in the living room. Our room, the Rhone Room, was so cozy, especially with the fireplace on in the evening; we had a great night's sleep! Valerie, the owner, was so helpful and friendly from start to finish. I emailed her with lots of questions and she answered me quickly, and with a friendly tone to her responses. When we arrived, she gave my husband an awesome riding route, and me the suggestion of a perfect place to run at the nearby Vanderbilt Mansion. Chef Marina (a CIA graduate) made us a delicious breakfast, and was so nice to talk to! Nicholas, the Inn-keeper who checked us in, was also very sweet and friendly (and a talented musician as well!) He really keeps the house nice and clean. We will definately stay at Le Petit Chateau in the future, and we highly recommend this establishment. (Oh, and I forgot to mention, you'll leave with a little parting gift, and token of Valerie's appreciation for her guests!)

It is so wonderful to have guests like this couple! We are proud of our inn as representing Old World Charm, something I think that is lacking in many of the boutique-style environments. I think one of the charms of a bed and breakfast, is the interaction with the guests. As I am an avid bicyclist, our conversations were quite enlivened by the Lance Armstrong mayhem ( I am also a Texan...)
