About 4 plus hours from NYC, after driving through several little towns, you will reach the little town of Leonardsville, NY, and this is where you will find the Horned Dorset Inn; a large, old, four bedroom house each with private baths. The two upstairs rooms had king size beds with large, private sitting rooms. We were very comfortable in our queen size bed downstairs and a shared sitting room adjourning a small dining area for an included breakfast (you can choose to have it served in your room) of Chibani yogurt (made in the next town over) homemade croissants and banana bread, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee or tea. It was quiet and unpretentious; no television or internet and an old-fashioned dial phone in the foyer for emergency contact. And our mid week stay was undisturbed by any noisy nightlife!
The owner, Madeleine, gave us a tour of the house and restaurant where we ate in the private dining room (incredible experience prepared by her husband, chef Aaron, but that's another review).
The personal touches of fresh fruit and bottled water and cloth napkins in our room were a great finishing touch!
