Rocky Hill, Connecticut6 contributions
Our stay at Watergrasshill was wonderful. The house has so much character and is located not too far from town . The rail trail is a 2 minute walk from Watergrasshill and was a great way to start or end our day with a walk. We were able to hike, do a winery, a brewery, shop, and dine out over the weekend in New Paltz. Alana’s bed and breakfast offered us a perfect home base to do that. Alana our host was awesome and provided us a clean comfortable place to stay along with amazing breakfasts.

This B&B is beautiful, very clean and very quiet. The owner, Alana, was great and a wealth of knowledge on the best places to eat at or visit in the area. And, her breakfasts were absolutely delicious (I actually asked her if she had been trained at the CIA). We would highly recommend Watergrasshill!!

We loved our stay at Watergrasshill B&B! We reserved all 5 rooms for my sister's bachelorette retreat weekend and it was exactly that...a reTREAT! Alana was very kind, helpful and accommodating. Each morning we had a delicious homemade breakfast and all of the rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Alana also helped us organize a wonderful cooking class in her big, beautiful kitchen. A definite highlight of our weekend. Watergrasshill is also in a perfect location with stunning views, a link to hiking trails and a short distance to the bustling streets of New Paltz.

Check-in very easy. We stayed in the Fern Room on the first floor, a large, lovely room, thoughtfully decorated, with a large ensuite bathroom, lots of towels and complimentary toiletries. Quiet central air was great since the weather outside was very hot. Alana, one of the owners, was very helpful with suggestions as to what to do and where to go, and she also created much of the art on the walls - she is very talented! Coffee and tea is available 24/7 and the breakfasts were homemade and tasty. You can relax inside in the living room, or outside on the front porch or back patio and you can also walk the grounds, which include a view of Alana's mothers beehives - don't worry, they are far from the BandB! Check-out also very easy, but we were sorry to leave! Highly recommend!

The Host was professional and friendly. She was very helpful in finding things to do in the area and cooked the best breakfast each morning to our specific request. Absolutely lovely old farm house. Old country charm and very relaxing. Highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Watergrasshill Bed & Breakfast was a gem. We had a wonderful 2 day stay in the Fern Room, which was on the first floor. It was very clean, lovely, and the bed was very comfortable. The owner, Alana, was very welcoming and attentive to all her guests. She was very informative and gave us suggestions for restaurants which were very good. We so enjoyed talking with her and to hear the history of the house. The whole house was beautiful and very clean. The full breakfasts that she offers on weekends were amazing with farm to table deliciousness. We bought her homemade raspberry blueberry jam which was excellent. The dining room gave us all access to coffee, tea, and both hot and cold water from a water cooler. There is a well groomed rail trail down the road which we enjoyed for a walk. We give Alana and her B&B an A++. We will definitely be back.

Watergrasshill is an exquisitely refurbished farmhouse. The hostess Alana has done a fantastic job of preserving its old charm while still providing modern conveniences (e.g., contemporary bathrooms). If you're looking for an idyllic place to stay away from the city, you owe it to yourself to check out Watergrasshill.
