My husband and I (and our toddler) wanted to have a quick get-away from NYC for just one night. We called during the week and were told that they don't do one night reservations on weekends in advance, but to try again on Friday, and if a room was available they would give it to us for the Saturday night. We called Friday morning, and true to their word, we were able to reserve a room for Saturday night (as were our friends who decided to come with us.) They were incredibly nice on the phone, and were extremely helpful in deciding the room we should pick and how we'd be able to hang out on their porch after the baby went to bed, stating that they provided baby monitors!
The place is beautiful, right across from an inlet of Greenwood Lake. The town of Greenwood Lake is a very short drive, and we were able to go to lunch and get back quickly. We were in the Caldwell Suite which is on the first floor – there was a little bit of noise from the front door closing, but it probably wouldn’t bother most people – we only noticed because it may have woken up our toddler from his mid-day nap…we didn’t hear the door at night at all! The room was super clean, really spacious, nice bathroom – I loved the ‘green’ products they had in the bathroom! The room was also perfectly situated for us – close to the front door and porch, so we put the baby to bed and felt incredibly comfortable going the short distance to the porch with a baby monitor and sipping wine and playing cards with our friends, overlooking the lake…so peaceful!
The breakfast area was really nice, overlooking the porch and the lake. The food was good, not great – I didn’t love my pancakes, but the rest was okay. Overall, a lovely, peaceful stay.
