“Sterling value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

What a wonderful experience to stay at this bed and breakfast. It was extremely good value at $100 for the charming and capacious blue suite. The bed was very comfortable and the room charmingly appointed. The same is true of the downstairs common rooms. My hosts, Neil and Jane, were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They have a guest computer for those travelling without a laptop - though also wifi capability - which I used extensively. The breakfast was large, varied and of very high quality: an egg, sausage and onion casserole, apple pancakes and a pastry or muffin. There were also snacks and tea or coffee to be had through the day. I stayed there the night before and the night after a five night monastic retreat at Holy Cross monastery. I strongly recommend this absolutely first-rate hostelry.

Cab fare from Poughkeepsie railway station shouldn't be more than about $16. There are no metres on local cabs, so negotiate up front. I can recommend B&B taxi very highly: prompt, professional and reasonable on three different fares.

We were looking for a place to stay near Minnewaska State Park but away from the college scene of New Paltz and we found it at Stonegate Inn.
This is a handsome Victorian structure among age old trees and pleasant landscaping, tuck away in a quiet hamlet but still close to everything.
When we stay at family run inns sometimes we dread the decor or enduring the narcissistic owners who insist on us recognizing their decorating talent. Not the case here, this inn happens to be boldly but tastefully decorated and the owners have a quiet confidence about it. The large public areas on the ground floor are nice and spacious and so are the rooms.
The generous and beautiful breakfast setting surprised us.
The other patrons who we happened to meet at the breakfast table were repeat guests and they all shared our enthusiasm for the place.
Thank you Jane and Neal. We are looking forward to staying at your place again!

Room Tip: Some rooms have an alcove with a cot or futon so your snoring partner can camp there:)

Although our stay was one night we would not hesitate to return in the future. Our hosts, Neil and Jane made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Fireside Suite which was well kept and spacious. Breakfast was yummy. Loved having coffee ready for early risers like ourselves.
All in all a very pleasant experience provided by a couple who love doing what they do.

We needed to spend a night in the New Paltz area as we had a special office celebration to attend at the Monhonk Mountain House. I researched the MMH, but the "special" price for our one room was astronomical, just a waste of hard earned money. So I looked around on Tripadvisor and found this lovely B & B a few miles away. So glad we chose Stonegate. It is beautifully decorated and well kept. Our room had charming wallpaper--sprigs of violets! They are my Mom's favorite flower, and so of course I had to photograph them to send her a picture!

Loved our room--it even had a separate sitting room--was very nice and spacious and I wished we were staying longer. Lovely bathroom--modern and clean with plenty of room. Lots of TLC in this home. And breakfast was great! There were hot cooked items as well as cereals or pastries or fruit--whatever we wished. Neil and Jane were excellent hosts and gave us tips about visiting the area.

I should say that before our fancy dinner at the MMH, we went out to explore the walking bridge over the Hudson. Wow, what a thrill! It was a gorgeous spring day--perfect to hike the bridge and admire the mighty Hudson and surrounding mountains.

Would return here in a heartbeat!

My boyfriend and I just spent one night at Stonegate Bed & Breakfast. The room was immaculate, the sheets nice and crisp, the room was so nicely decorated and when the sun rose this morning, OMG was it just beautiful! Jane and Neil were so friendly and gave us a few tips on how to be take advantage of the region. We will be back. Just not even 90 minutes from NYC, just 7 minutes from New Paltz (great restaurant). OH and LET US NOT FORGET, Breakfast! Jane you are an awesome chef in your own right. Stonegate is a great getaway without being far from civilization. We will be back!

Stonegate Bed and Breakfast has beautiful architecture, a calming setting, and a unique, eclectic feel. It was wonderful to wake up every morning to the aroma of a yummy home cooked breakfast and enter the dining room that always had an appealing table set. We also enjoyed relaxing on the porch in the evening.

The owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. In the end it exceeded my expectations:)

The Stonegate Inn was a wonderful experience. Neil and Jane were great hosts. The breakfast was to die for! Love the front porch for unwinding with a glass of wine. Very close to New Paltz and the local wineries. Price was reasonble. A can't miss stay!!!
