Well kept, great hosts. When providing a description of the rooms they should state what floor they are on. We would have preferred a 2 floor room but the pictures of accurate. The breakfasts were delicious and the conversations were great.

Beautiful, relaxing, and always welcoming. Chefs & Hosts, Justine and David have welcomed us into their Inn for one weekend every summer for the past 5 years. We have become good friends and look forward to next summer. Breakfast is included and of course it is perfect...Justine & David are both professional chefs. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My husband and I just happened upon this delightful B&B when we were searching online in the Hudson Valley region. We couldn't have been more pleased. The inn is charming, more like a cottage, with antiques and lovely decorative touches. The hosts, Justine, David and their daughter, were enthusiastic, warm and so knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed a delicious... More
