Stayed on Saturday and had a wonderful time. Inn is gorgeous, the room was fantastic and breakfast, well, that was a real bonus! We'd been to B&B's before but Dsvid's breakfast was delicious! Our hosts, Dsvid & Justine were wonderful - wonderful place...highly recommend it!

What a wonderful, warm, friendly, delicious, romantic getaway! David and Justine were the most gracious hosts during our first stay at a B&B! Their home is beautiful and made our home away from home an experience we will never forget! Personalized service, accommodating essentials in our room and a breakfast to die for!

We chose this B & B because they allowed us to bring our dog. I didn't expect it to be so pretty and so well thought out. The innkeepers tried to provide everything that a guest could want and were very good at it. There was even a plate of chocolates from a local chocolate maker in the room to... More

It is a mystery to us why so many lodging properties seem to prohibit guests with pets and children, but at Smythe House we welcome all guests warmly to our home and including those with pets or children, we always have and always will. We feel and experience that the home is large enough and rooms private enough for each... More

My wife and I stayed at the Esopus Creek Cottage rather than the main house because we wanted the view and tranquility of the setting, which was exactly as promised. We stayed in the studio, which consisted of a large bedroom, an attached kitchen and dining area, and private bath with a shower and tub.It is separate from the three... More

We are glad to hear you liked the country cottage as much as we do, its a little slice of heaven, right on the water and the last house on the road so very private yet still one mile to the cute and interesting village of Saugerties. Thank you for your kind comments about the breakfast, glad to hear you... More

We visited Saugerties for the first time in August 2015. This is strange as we are both born and raised in New York. We rented the Esopus Suite which is on the Esopus creek. The accommodations were fantastic, very clean and well maintained. There is access to the creek from the small dock in the back yard. There are canoes,... More

We stayed at the Barclay Heights B&B as a long weekend "stay-cation". Beautiful historic home with a great location in Saugerties (which has become a really hip little town by the way!). The owners are kind and welcoming, both are professional chefs and the breakfast was great. The only thing I was surprised by was that some of the rooms... More

We decided last minute to travel to the Hudson Valley over the 4th of July weekend. What a pleasant find a short trip from the NYC area. Delicious breakfast and fun shopping in both Saugerties and Woodstock.

David's culinary skills made for the most fabulous breakfasts where our table faced the lovely mountains and gorgeous fall foliage. Justine couldn't have been a better hostess! We stayed in the Violet Room with four poster bed and large bathroom with elegant shower and a jacuzzi.

This lovely B&B has all the makings of a wonderful weekend getaway. Our room (the Violet Room) was delightful, with a large, extremely comfortable 4 poster bed and a wonderful spacious bathroom with over-sized jacuzzi tub and a fantastic steam/rain shower.
