Pig Hill Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Cold Spring B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2007

We love the Pig Hill Inn. The staff makes you feel like you've been welcomed into their own home. Breakfast was terrific. This is our third time there and they made some improvements to our favorite room, Windsong, which now has its own bathroom. We tried the other B&B in town and its no match for the Pig Hill. The only negative about Cold Spring itself is that there is not much to do at night.

Kyle, the young man who seems to be handling everything when the owner/innkeeper is away is, above all, a master of the sweet, paper-thin crepes available on the sumptuous breakfast menu. (He even gave his recipe to my wife!) And of course there are many other delights laid out: tiny muffins, fruit, eggs benedict, etc., etc. The OJ was cold. The coffee was hot, and all was served by a charming and efficient waitress. Oh yes, there were
home-made chocolate chip cookies available "24/7."

That covers the "breakfast" part of "B&B."

The "bed part" was satisfactory in every respect: comfortable, spotless in our view; with plenty of towels, drawer space and typical charm associated with quaint, Hudson Valley towns like Cold Spring, Garrison and others. That means there won't be telephones, TV's and internet hook-ups, but there WILL be good books on the nightstands, creaking wide pine floorboards and wall paper that may have slightly separated from the walls in a few inconspicuous areas. The rooms are smallish (as is the whole inn) but lacking nothing necessary for a restful night's sleep.

This is definiitely the place for a night or two of comfort, delicious breakfast and attentive staff. It is probably not the place for partying.

Above all, Vera, the owner/innkeeper, was exceptionally helpful and accommodating in several important ways ways.

As we missed the Shakespeare at Boscobel this trip, we will definitely be retuning to the Inn next year.

Beware the "Tranquility Suite"!

My boyfriend and I were stunned when we stepped into our much-anticipated "Tranquility Suite". Was this the Innkeeper's idea of a ironic prank to play on a couple willing to splurge on their most expensive room (because of it's king-sized bed and oversized tub)? The website's misleading photos and content conceal the size of the room: It is so small that the bed occupies 90% of it...to the degree that we kept tripping on the edge of the woodburning stove in an attempt to walk around the bed or open the armoire (with sticky drawers and doors that wouldn't close). A chair that was jammed into the space had a seat so collapsed that if you sat on it, you'd slide off and land under the bed....or crash into the aforementioned woodburning stove. Okay, I'm exaggerating...but only a bit. In fairness to the Inn, the other rooms we saw, with queen-sized beds and smaller bathrooms, were lovely. If they hadn't crammed a king-sized bed into our room, it would have been a much better experience. And lastly, while there wasn't visible dirt in our room, it didn't look or feel clean. This wasn't helped by an astonishing lack of housekeeping service: no beds were made, no clean towels were provided during our 2 night stay. It felt like an amateur operation, in contrast to our experiences at inns that are gracious, well-run and hospitable.

We had been told wonderful things about Cold Spring and decided to check it out. We were rather surprised by the price of this establishment, but as this one looked lovely we gave it a try.

First of all, Cold Springs is a podunk town with little to recommend it. So the reasons for the high price are indeed baffling. The house itself is gorgeous and clean, and the room was comfortable. But I found the owner to be cold and rude, and as the office was locked up after 8, we could not get answers to questions. Kyle was a life saver very helpful, and even agreed to make us an early breakfast after the owner said no. But even his assistance didn't help our stay. The room, priced close to NYC prices, had no tv, no phone, no net connection, no refrigerator and get this - no kleenex in the room! (but there was the ubiquitous hair dryer) We have stayed at bed and breakfasts all over the world, and we are certainly not picky about amenities. But when we are spending this kind of money, we do tend to expect a little something more. All of the over priced antiques were lovely but did not make up for the total lack of value of this B&B

This B&B is truly beautiful and charming with peaceful and friendly atmosphere. After the whole day of hiking you can relax in this nice and lovely place. Everybody is very helpful, food delicious... We really enjoyed staying there!

We always depend on Trip Advisor for information when planning a trip to a destination we've never visited and we almost passed on The Pig Hill Inn after reading some reviews. However, we found the Inn to be a very pleasant, welcoming place to stay.

Our room was cozy, with a view of the garden in the rear. The staff seemed very happy to chat with us, make suggestions for restaurants, or to give us a needed cork screw.

Breakfast was superb in the glass conservatory.

The location is perfect; right in the middle of town and only a block from the Metro North train station. You can easily walk down to the Hudson River and around town.

I would absolutely recommend this inn to anyone planning to visit Cold Spring.

Our group stayed at the Pig Hill Inn in November and we truly enjoyed this neat Inn. The breakfast was without compare. The Innkeeper Kyle made anything we wanted for a really great experience that allowed us to skip at least one meal each day. The close access to the train made for an easy trip to New York City and very convenient. The Inn is really charming and everyone loved this old building with it's woodburning stoves and fireplaces. A great experience for all of us.
