My reviews are a bit mixed....some good; some not so good. Front desk was very helpful, professional; and accommodating. They allowed us a slightly early check in. The grounds, to me, are beautiful. Even in November; beautiful trees, plantings, pathways, and of course; the ponds, river views and animals. Our room was nice, but quite small-not a big deal. No fridge or coffee maker-they did have robes. Bed was not particularly comfortable and the pillows were way too thick and firm. I woke up with a really sore neck both mornings. We ate at Henry's both nights. Some things were good; others were not. I would rate it a 3/5. Breakfasts at the inn arrived cold and incomplete. I found none of the specials to be appetizing so ordered a standard egg breakfast both mornings. Our server at breakfast was young and unseasoned, but pleasant. They recognized my boyfriend's birthday by leaving us a chilled mini champagne bottle with 2 glasses in our room when we arrived. We really appreciated the effort and special touch. My massage at the spa was non-existent. My boyfriend said his was amazing. My massage therapist basically rubbed lotion on my body-there was no actual massage. I can't believe I spent the money that I did; only to receive the most uninspiring massage ever. Not sure what happened there. She also seemed to scold me for being tense...which was very odd.

Property's Favorite Review
We rented the north cottage with our dog for a long weekend. It was about 1000 square feet with a full kitchen, open concept dining room and living room with a beautiful fully working fireplace, two bedrooms, and one bath. We were next to the aviary house but never heard the peacocks or hens/roosters. Everybody who worked there was so friendly, from the front desk, to the breakfast staff, to Henry's restaurants, to the spa, to the gentleman in charge of the grounds. We walked around the grounds with and without the dog all day, enjoyed the beautiful Hudson river and all the animals. My only criticism is the master bedroom bed. Its WAY too small and too uncomfortable. A nice Queen or California King would be awesome! Otherwise, I highly recommend the Inn and Spa.....

The photos look inviting; the grounds are gorgeous, and I can see why you would want to get married there. My husband and I wanted a few quiet days away in a lovely, comfortable environment. We did not get it. This was 2-star. And not 4. The rooms were dark, we changed and upgraded, and little changed, nothing that needed repair was repaired. It took forever for the rooms to get warm, the breakfast was less satisfying than a middling diner. And with all that and more, we paid, with taxes, $400+/night. Such a ripoff. We will never return nor recommend.

The room price, with taxes and "resort fee", was $483.20/night for two nights. A resort, this is NOT. I'd say the room was worth, best case, $83.20/night. This was nothing short of highway robbery, and for the value, was the worst hotel/inn I've ever stayed in. The room was generally unclean, the windows were filthy, the shower was barely a trickle, the lighting in the room was awful (not to mention several burnt out bulbs), the fuse for the hair dryer blew literally every 10 seconds, the bathroom was in a state of disrepair, the service was non-existent, the room was on a second floor which meant we had to carry our suitcases up about 15 steps, the bed was creaky, and the promised breakfast was delayed (because of horrible service) by more than an hour. I cannot say a single positive thing about this place. Save your money and stay anywhere else. ANYwhere else.

The room is charmingly decorated and the bed is so very comfortable. The bathroom is a good size, the showerhead should be a bit larger, but there was instant hot water, which was greatly appreciated after being soaked by rain. There is a fireplace in the room and after 15 minutes the fireplace shut off automatically, it would have been nice to be able to have it on for a longer period of time. The staff is friendly and helpful. Please note laundry service is limited, as staff goes home at 5pm. My room was on the first floor and since this is a BB and there was a bit of noise from above, so if sensitive to noise maybe ask for a second floor room. My friend's room had a very small TV, whereas my room had a more normal size TV.
