“Fascinating History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Patsy was a treasure trove of lore about local history and the Roosevelts. She was very welcoming and informative. I was there to do research, and she connected me with people who had actually known the woman I was researching. She really went out of her way for me.

My room was small but nice. Unfortunately, the larger bedroom wasn't available. No breakfast, but just a block away from a good local cafe that sold the NY Times.

Room Tip: The larger bedroom is really very spacious, with lots of room for a desk or just sitting. The back...

The inn is located very close to the omega institute . It offered us an option to staying at omega , and it was very affordable. It was clean, comfortable and located 10 mins from omega. Hyde park is very historic, Pasty, the host, was very knowledgeable about all there was to see. The Culinary institute is very near by, and the Vanderbilt rose gardens just down the road. We were very happy with our stay, the bed was very comfortable. A really nice perk was that Patsy's has a massage therapist, there named Joan....my massage was wonderful and just what I needed after traveling from Virginia. We hope to stay again on our next trip back to Omega!!

The bedroom and bathroom were very clean. We stayed in the canopy room which had plenty of room. This was a very good value. My hushand & I enjoyed Patsy's stories. Would definitely go there again if we were in the area.

I stayed here during my recent visit to Omega Institute. Patsy is a gracious hostess and the rooms are beautifully appointed and very clean. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. If you have a few minutes, Patsy has interesting, personal stories about Eleanor Roosevelt. Ask her to show you her keepsakes from the era!

Patsy is a lovely hostess, very accommodating and hospitable. The rooms are neat and clean. The location is quiet and private, but near everything you want to see. Patsy was welcoming and gracious when my mom, sister and I stayed there. All her recommendations were spot-on. She also gave us space, though, to explore on our own. Great value, too!

Quaint, clean, and packed with history. My family and I stayed at Costello's Guest House over ten years ago. I recently returned with a friend for a one-night stay. Little has changed over the years. It's still the perfect choice for those wanting safe, centrally-located lodging that won't break the bank. Patsy, the hostess with the most-ess, is a local history gem and her home is a mini-museum of sorts. Patsy is all to happy to share her "behind the scenes" knowledge of Hyde Park. She weaves wonderful tales about America's own version of "Dowton Abbey." It was a royal experience!

We stayed here for our daughter's graduation from Bard College and had a great time. The room was very comfortable and Patsy was super accommodating. We loved our stay here and will definitely come again!
