I never write reviews but this was our second time at the Blue Barn BnB and it was fantastic! It's a combination of a five star hotel and visiting a good friend's beautiful home. The owner, Joanie, is a wonderful cook and hostess (the breakfast is amazing). During our stay, my boyfriend and I made reservations at a restaurant in town. Joanie knew the manager so she called the restaurant and asked them to seat us by the fireplace. We'll definitely be staying at the Blue Barn BnB again in the future!
Staying at the Blue Barn BnB was wonderful: 1830s home with comfortable country decor, yet classy with a touch of luxury. The breakfasts are just terrific, and so are the afternoon's cookies, teas, and coffee. The owner is super hostess: friendly and helpful with great suggestions to enjoy the area. The extra touches like up-to-date menus from local restaurants, brochures on local sights, and book cabinets with intriguing reads are welcoming and useful. Millbrook is great town, centrally located for touring the mid-Hudson. Loved the BnB so much, already planning a return visit!
A big thank you Joni for making our Anniversary Celebration a stay to remember. All of your personal touches make your place stand out for sure! Everything is super fresh - from the room to the breakfast. :) Loved the Fireplace and the Bourbon was enjoyed by my husband!!!
Joni, the owner is wonderfully welcoming and knowledgeable. Her breakfasts are outstandingly delicious even while accommodating gluten and dairy free restrictions. She uses local food sources for much of her dishes! The downstairs library room is a comfortable and cozy place to relax in front of the fireplace. The guest room we stayed in was great: the updated bathroom had a wonderful shower. We'll book again if we're traveling in that area.
The innkeeper is a gracious and welcoming host and the inn is carefully and tastefully appointed and very clean throughout. The breakfast are splendid and the location very convenient in visiting the area sights in Millbook, Poughkeepsie and Hyde Park
