“A perfect stay”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

This is where you want to stay if you value proper service standards. The house is clean, beautiful and quiet, the service friendly but not fussy. Basically, it is a well oiled machine. The food is delicious and the innkeeper seems to strive to assist guests in finding restaurants and local points of interests that will suit them. I would consider this more of an Inn, rather than a B&B, just in terms of privacy. Most times, B&B's make you feel like you're really staying in someone's home, while The Denniston balances welcoming comfort with anonymity. Check out the views of the Hudson from the front of the house and the lovely garden at the rear of the house. The innkeeper's cats provide many photo ops if that's your thing. I would definitely stay here again.

We wanted a quiet base to explore the Hudson Valley, and Goldsmith Denniston House was the perfect choice. It's on the most charming street and a ten minute walk to the waterfront. Nancy was a great hostess and prepared a delicious breakfast. The bed was perfect and we had a great night's sleep.

We stayed at the Goldsmith Denniston House in July 2010 for three evenings and had a wonderful time. Nancy is a lovely hostess with a lot of knowledge about the area and its attractions. Her home is very clean and the breakfast each morning was a delicious treat. We would definitely stay there again.

I had a delightful weekend at the Goldsmith Denniston House in Newburgh NY.  I had a very comfortable room  with beautiful view overlooking the Hudson River.  The Innkeeper, Nancy Billman, served  fabulous breakfasts in a beautifully appointed dining room.  I felt very pampered!  The House has spacious rooms, restful, inviting grounds, and there’s plenty to do and see in the Newburgh area.  A great destination, within an hour of NYC

Heavenly B&B experience!! I can only echo what others have said—
classy yet welcoming, historically charming and lovely down to the smallest detail. Nancy Billman provides personal but professional attention to guests —not to mention exquisite breakfasts in a beautiful dining room to start each day. Perfect!

If you are looking for a wonderful B&B experience in the Hudson Valley, visit the Goldsmith Denniston. It is a charming historic Mansion run by Nancy Billman. We stayed in a beautifully decorated, immaculate room overlooking the Hudson River. It had a large private bathroom. The breakfast was served in a lovely dinning room was delicious. We also spent some time with Nancy in the very comfortable library/TV room. She was a very attentive host without be intrusive: we would definitely stay there again.

Over the long Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying here.
We had stumbled upon it online while planning a last-minute roadtrip from NYC, and having never been to this area before, didn\'t quite know what to expect. We couldn\'t have been more pleasantly surprised.
Situated on a street of 19th century gilded age mansions overlooking the Hudson River, the Goldsmith Denniston House is an immaculately restored home dating from 1820, when Newburgh was on the rise as a prominent Hudson River port. Originally built for the family of a wealthy lawyer, the interior is beautifully appointed and true to the building\'s Federal style of architecture. Stepping inside is truly like stepping back in time. We were warmly greeted by the House\'s proprietor, Nancy, who invited us to use any of the rooms on the ground floor including the spacious and bright living room with its antique piano and the warm library stocked full with books. Much of the house\'s charm lies in its faithful upkeep of the past- from the hand-pulled dumbwaiter to the marvelous bay windows in the living room, which,were added as \"modern improvements\" in the 1870\'s. There is much literature in the house documenting its story and its amazing restoration, and the proprietors are a wealth of knowledge about the home and the area. It\'s a history buff\'s dream.

There are four bedrooms to choose from and each is equally beautiful and unique in its own way. One of the many delights of staying here was finding little antiques in our room- old eyeglasses, a bottle of bath oil that seemed a century old- even the hand-towels were from a bygone era. Our bed was amazingly comfortable and the temperature of the room was perfect. And despite its age, the house is immaculately neat and clean, and the temperature very comfortable. We felt very much at home.
Breakfast was another great experience- delicious eggs, banana bread, coffee, juices, and fruit served on Federal era dining ware- again, it was like stepping back in time.

As city-dwellers, we found Newburgh to be quite sleepy. There is not too much going on and people turn in very early. However, this is not necessarily a negative, as it only heightens one\'s sense of visiting the past, and makes for a serenely quiet retreat only an hour or so north of NYC. Also, there is much to take in in the surrounding area, only minutes away- such as the Dia modern art museum across the river, and many wineries and high-quality microbreweries.

There was nothing negative I could note about our experience at the Denniston House and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique, relaxing, and historical experience within an easy drive of New York City.
