Reviewed July 9, 2008

Lovely old house, comfortable bed, I almost wish I'd been cooped up by the weather so I could explore the books and games. The huge bathtub in the master suite was wonderful after a day at the Greenland kayak festival (although its drain does need to be re-soldered, it comes out as an entire unit). The breakfasts were marvelous, fresh fruit, muffins and pastries directly from the oven, bacon cooked perfectly, delicious quiche. The fresh chocolate chunk cookies in the evening were delicious and greeted you with a wonderful smell as you arrived. The fireflies were out in the evening and added a lovely sparkle to the night when we walked to the Blue Pig for excellent ice cream. Each of the other couples we met there had interesting stories to tell about their trips.

By far the best B&B we've ever stayed at, and we've stayed at a lot around the country. You won't find better hosts than the ones at Alexander Hamilton House- Cyd and her mom. The place is relaxing, the food was exquisite, and the surrounding area was a great place to explore. If you're coming to the hudson river valley or to New York City, this B&B is a must stay!

The Alexander Hamilton House met our every need and exceeded any travel expectation we've ever had. They provided a notebook of information that directed us to nearby restaurants and attractions and cooked us delicious breakfasts (even accomodating our vegan diet)! We came for an interview and just needed a place to sleep, but we ended up touring the Hudson Valley and wishing the days were longer, all based on the recommendations in their notebook!

Cydney, the innkeeper, provides such hospitality and a friendly enivronment in a wonderful setting overlooking the Hudson. The house is easy to find, great to sleep in and great to wake up in. We look forward to returning!!

Their website is informative and accurate, but in our opinion undersells it. This is a place you must visit in person! www.alexanderhamiltonhouse.com

Just returned from a wonderful mini vacation in the Lower Hudson Valley (New York state) The stay at the Alexander Hamilton House , a B&B located in Croton on the Hudson, ( the middle of everything) ,was wonderful.
The innkeepers, Cyd & Rich, could not have been nicer. Upon our arrival we were given a tour of the house along with it's history. A book with directions to all the nearby attractions and restaurants was also provided for us to keep in the car. This pro
ved to be a great help in navigating the local roads.
Add to all of the above two terriffic breakfasts and one can get the idea that we highly recommend the Alexander House for your Lower Hudson Valley vacation....Jerry & Judy Kleger

Let me start by admitting that I have almost no experience with B&B's, so this is the novice perspective.

I found AHH to be a curious little place, with many interesting design elements and amenities not found in traditional hotels. I though it was fun.

I stayed for 2 nights.

The breakfasts are on the light side but not bad at all and it was nice to meet other guests there and chat with Cyd before breakfast.

I never had any problems with the noise there but the walls/doors didn't look soundproofed at all (typical for B&Bs, as I my friends later told me). In the same vein - if you used to stay in large hotels, you probably need to keep an open mind. I can see how some people can be irritated by the same irregularities I found amusing (in-room safe not bolted down, furniture with cracks on it, etc.). If you want a sterile standardized environment AHH may be not be the right place for you.

Complains - None really. Well, there is no sign outside and parking can be tricky.

The verdict - I would probably come back if I'm in the area. The price may be a tad high but it's a relaxing stay, very warm feeling comparing to chain hotels.

alexhous, owner at Alexander Hamilton House, responded to this review, December 5, 2007
Two came to mind while reading this review:

1. This person seems confused about the fact that things are not like they would be in a hotel. This should not surprise the reviewer. For decades, travelers seeking an experience with a personable host, good cooking, and furniture with character, i.e. antiques, have chosen bed and breakfasts over hotels. Clearly they were not as comfortable with escaping the anonymity of a hotel, and they weren't expecting what a B&B was going to be.

2. The idea of the Lumberjack breakfast is confusing to me as a host. What fills one person is not the same as another in the morning. If this person had asked for more, we would have given them more. B&Bs are often subject to providing better service than a hotel, at a fraction of the price, but still, no one can read your mind. If you need something, speak up!

We stayed here a week for our honeymoon in the month of October. We stayed in the Master Suite and found the room to be nice, but the jacuzzi tub kept leaking and the water would not stay in unless you placed a cup over the drain. The innkeeper at the time was not helpful at all in recommending anything as far as nearby restaurants or places to horseback ride. The breakfast consisted of dishes that contained a lot of fruit, so if you prefer a hearty breakfast, this is not the place. For the price, I would not recommend this B&B.

I loved the Inn. I spent a week there and because the owner is a chef she kindly allowed me to watch as she created her delicious specialties. Her private valentines day dinner was the best. She arranged private tandem massages in the room. Her hand dipped strawberries are to die for. The innk-per Rich was also very helpful and gracious .I would like to return,.
