We selected this place based on a recommendation and were delighted in every respect. We go to quite a few bed and breakfasts and this one stands out because of it's amazing breakfasts, modern facility, immaculate cleanliness, it's warm and friendly hosts (Arnie and Kathy) and their two great dogs.
Our room had a two person whirlpool that was delightful. It was situated just under two windows so we could open the window and feel a cool breeze as the heat of the water warmed us up. Just perfect!
The king bed we slept in had featherbed softness to it with a pillow top mattress and a pillow top bedspread -- lusciously soft. We didn't want to get up.
The movie DVD collection was great so the day it rained we stayed indoors and enjoyed the whirlpool and watched movies on the flat screen TV from a loveseat in our room.
The New Paltz area is wonderful especially in the fall when the leaves change colors. We hiked along the Mohunk Preserve courtesy of free admission tickets provided by Kathy and Arnie. The restaurants they recommended (Beso and 36 Main Wine Bar) made for great upscale dining, though 36 Main Wine Bar got a bit noisy as the evening went on.
We stayed their for our Anniversary and definitely plan to be back.
