“Warm and comforting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We stayed for a week at The Dominion House in mid-December when my father died and felt rested and comforted. Kathy and Joe gave us a lovely balance of warm attention and privacy. Every morning we had a different delicious breakfast and every night we had good night's sleep on a comfortable bed. The house was lovingly decorated in holiday style with old fashioned train set and holiday village in the front room. We look forward to staying here again.

Having been to some other B&B s in the east coast where we were treated in a sumptuous way and having read the previous reviews, my expectations from Dominion House were high.

We were received in a cold way, the owner Kathy was precipitated to have our credit card and she did not even offer us a glass of water upon arrival, the building needs -if not a renovation- at least some fresh painting, the rooms have a certain charm but no style, the bathroom is just acceptable, the breakfast was fine.

I've stayed at many B&B's all over the country and I have to say what makes them memorable are the hosts..... and this one is on the top of my list. My husband and I felt and were treated like we were one of the family. Both Joe and Kathy seemed like they enjoy every minute of what they do (and it's not an easy job by any means!) They are very adamant about sharing their historic home with their guests for us to enjoy. It is very comfortable and decorated with original antiques to the home, and my bed gave me a very good night sleep! The breakfasts are out of this world good......Joe and Kathy both partake in the cooking and serving and what a well done job it is. They made great recommendations for places and things to see and we had beautiful fall weather. As you can see from the other reviews, it's worth a trip any time of year to The Dominion House. Thanks Joe and Kathy for your wonderful hospitality.

Room Tip: We had a room without a bathroom but it was fine and no problem at all....there is also a room with...

Beautiful house, delicious breakfast. Joe and Kathy make you feel right at home. There were fantastic amenities including- a pool, hot tub, pool table, and impressive library- all available for the guests' enjoyment. This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast and it could not have been more enjoyable. If you are ever going to be in Orange County for a winery or maybe to visit Museum Village, I recommend a stay at the Dominion House because it will make your trip that much better. It is one of the best reviewed Bed and Breakfasts in the area as well and once you stay there you will know why.

We stayed in the Bungalow in The Dominion House for 2 weeks in July and enjoyed every minute. The big house, the bungalow and the property are well maintained, homey and comfortable. The bungalow felt like our own little place in the country, complete with kitchen, front porch and back deck. I loved reading on the covered porch even when it rained. The bathroom is modern with a jacuzzi tub. We played in the pool whenever the weather allowed and loved the cool, fresh water. The owners, Kathy and Joe are gracious hosts who are genuine and kind. The breakfasts at the house were wonderful, including homemade scones that melt in your mouth. We love this place and plan on returning!

Wonderful hosts that encourage you to make yourself at home in so many ways: help yourself to cold drinks in the mini-fridge and cookies on the counter; use the keurig anytime you wish with lots of drink options; enjoy a huge house with seating on the porch, deck, or by the pool; treat yourself to the hot tub, pool table, and salt water swimming pool; relax in comfortable, charming bedrooms with a gorgeous bath with new fixtures; and get spoiled with an absolutely wonderful breakfast served to you each day that will give you yet another reason to get out of that cozy bed and enjoy your day at the Dominion House and exploring the Hudson Valley.

Room Tip: Shared bath works out fine.

Quality time both indoors at 'The Dominion House' and outdoors on the Appalachian Trails: both highly recommendable ...also for short stays over the week end. Breakfast is delicious, of the finest quality, rooms are impeccably tidy and the location is extraordinary.
