I wasn't able to book a place at Omega and chose Costello's for proximity and price. Just lovely. Patsy greeted me, gave me a little of the history of the house and made me feel very welcome. There are only two rooms that she rents out. My only reservation is that the other guest, arrived from Omega before me and... More

Perfect location. Just an uncomplicated and simple way to stay. Patsy was very welcoming, very knowledgeable and just downright friendly. There is Cranberry's right around the corner for breakfast and a refrigerator for anyone needing it. The rooms and sitting room were spotless and the WiFi worked perfectly without interruption. All this at a really reasonable price.

Patsy is a really kind and natural person and is a totally professional host - you can tell she has been doing this for a long time. The room was comfortable and clean, and most importantly of all I felt extremely relaxed and thoughtfully cared for (Patsy researched bus schedules for me, furnished me with an umbrella when it was...

Patsy was very nice and a wealth of knowledge. A very cheerful welcome! The room was perfect for the 3 of us. Free wifi and access to fridge definite pluses. Very convenient to many attractions in the area.

We just returned from a delightful stay at Costello's Guest House. The trip was wonderful, and the accommodations delightful. Patsy is an amazing authority on the Roosevelt's. Plus, she was very helpful with recommendations on what to see. She even helped us arrange a tour of the Culinary Institute of America, which we hadn't expected. Patsy's B&B is right in... More

I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again. I was transported back to another era. The room was well kept, clean and inviting. I haven't slept that well in a while! Nice firm mattress, soft fluffy pillows, really comfortable.

We transacted all the reservation/deposit work on email and phone quite easily. Ms Costello wants checks for payment, and I use checks, so it was very easy. We coordinated arrival times so she could let us in. Very lovely bedroom in a single family house. We were in Poughkeepsie for activities at Vassar so this was an easy drive. Plenty... More

We had the chance to to enjoy a wonderful few days at Costello's Guest House in Hyde Park. Patsy is a great host, and as President of the local historical society, she can tell you all about the area's rich history. Staying here was like staying with a family member, and the lodging rate was about 1/2 of other local... More

Wow, so comfortable and charming and clean plus a canopy bed. This is the home of longtime socially active locals, it is NOT a hotel but it has all the amenities such as wifi and tea, so you can keep working in a quiet corner or in your room. Certainly, I recommend you arrange to stay there whenever visiting the... More
