The Dominion House
Reviewed February 2, 2011

My wife and I stayed here for one night just to get out of the winter routine. We were amazed at the charm and history of this big, beautiful home. Kathy and Joe are the most gracious hosts you could imagine. We loved the hot tub, library and pool table! Breakfast was outstanding. It was so picturesque with the snow, the Christmas tree and lovely rolling hills that surround this magnificent home. We are coming back as soon as we can to enjoy the pool! We can't wait to visit-it was really great!

The Dominoopn House has many aspects that other places in this area can not offer. I think it's location is such a plus, off the main road, peaceful, with surrounds to roam.
The food is excellent as are the rooms and hosts.

It was our first stay at a B & B. Kathy and Joe were very friendly and welcoming. The room was charming and comfortable. Kathy's breakfast was amazing. I look forward to staying again.

This is the second time we chose to stay at The Dominion House during "leaf peeping" season in Orange County, NY. This is a beautiful old house with charming antique furniture--but there's a pool table available, too! Breakfast is served at a long table that's beautifully set and the food was excellent, always starting with a homemade sweet roll or slice of yummy sweet tart. Kathy and Joe, the owners, are delightful, friendly and helpful--we were ready for dinner when we arrived and they immediately made a reservation at a wonderful local restaurant for us. Our room was beautiful and comfortable and all in all, we had a delightful stay. And the weather even cooperated, including beautiful leaves and a gorgeous full harvest moon.

What a deal - a hot tub, pool, billiards, lounging room, AMAZING hospitality, fantastic breakfast, library, quaint location, beautiful porch - all for a reasonable rate. I almost hesitate to tell you how fantastic this place is because I don't want The Dominion House to be booked up the next time I go! I loved my stay - and conversation with the owners was SO easy and fun. Highly recommended!

Kathy and Joe are our new family. Period. They shared their lovely, historic home graciously and were more than accommodating to our requests for a couple extra services. Great conversationalists and very friendly, they were also sensitive to our reason for staying: to spend quiet, private time with our new West Point daughter, who also happened to be celebrating her birthday during our first visit with her since June. The home is stately, situated outside of town at the end of a lane, with a lovely, pristine in-ground pool, very pleasing landscaping and no shortage of outdoor seating (perfect for wildlife observation, hence another reviewer's 'unpleasant' walkabout), as well as offering a billiards table, tv/lounge room, hot tub room, well-stocked library with WIFI, and unlimited 24/7 beverages and snacks. No eating in the bedrooms, yes, but who would want to with the lovely and peaceful outside atmosphere, or indoor dining set tucked into the bow kitchen window? Breakfasts: delicious!!! Having stayed in many B&Bs - some fancy, some not - Kathy and Joe made our very special weekend absolutely perfect, perfect, perfect. Dominion House is our new favorite B&B - can't wait to go back!

The Dominion House is a lovely bed and breakfast. Kathy and Joe were warm but professional hosts, breakfast was delicious, and the house was a charming 1880s farmhouse with all the original furnishings. There was a very pleasant backyard pool, a hot tub, a library full of books, wireless internet, and a 24-hour tea/coffee/cookie service. The atmosphere was romantic and quiet, but the hosts were very kind and helpful with our toddler. Joe, the owner, is a licensed pilot and you can also arrange private flights with him (though we did not). One or two caveats: our room shared a bath with another room -- though some rooms have private baths -- and for those who like to walk places, the B&B is tucked a mile or two away from the nearest town of Washingtonville. All in all, a real find.
