I went to Rhinebeck this fall for the New York Sheep and Wool Festival, a gathering of yarn and knitting fanatics that gets larger and larger every year. A search on Google brought me to the Olde Rhinebeck Inn, an early American bed and breakfast in New York's artsy, Hudson Valley. I went with a friend and we are two Florida girls, so imagine how thrilled we were at the riot of color that was the Rhinebeck countryside in October. The inn sits down a rural lane amid all of this color, with it's own picturesque pond to boast. Charming would be an understatement. The rooms are beautifully appointed suites with every detail provided for. As much as this inn is a loving restoration, there is much to be said for WiFi access, CD Stereo, satellite TV, thick robes and a beautiful vase of fresh flowers on the table. There is a mini fridge in the hall with refreshments and space for a couple of snacks.
The innkeepers Jonna and David are so well suited for this. Jonna is a fabulous and innovative hostess. The breakfasts were to die for (I'm still trying to recreate the cream cheese french toast. Our stay there was as much of a draw as the original reason we went to Rhinebeck. I would recommend it to anyone. My only regret is that I wasn't there with a significant other because it really had a romantic allure. Thanks Jonna and David!
