You would NOT stay anywhere else in the Hudson River Valley. The property is peaceful and beautiful - one might even call it bucolic - but it is still only minutes from downtown Rhinebeck so driving back after a delicious dinner and a drink or two is much easier than you might imagine. Maggie is the perfect hostess and a great cook - but be careful that you don't fill up on homemade muffins or buttermilk pancakes made from scratch before it's time to give her your order for eggs!
I was traveling with my brother and sister-in-law and we stayed in the 2 larger rooms in the Carriage House, which I highly recommend. Beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and gas fireplaces. All you would ask for in a terrific setting such as the Whistle Wood Farm. The air conditioning is a definite plus.
Maggie also knows all of the good places to eat in town, so be sure to ask her for advice - although she is far from shy and will give it to you even if you don't ask!
Whistle Wood is definitely on my list of must-return-to-places!
