My boyfriend, his parents, and I spent a weekend at the Whistlewood (wyoming room & morningside room). The property itself is gorgeous with horse stable & friendly horses, several friendly cats, and two well behaved dogs. It's located in a very rural area just outside Rhinebeck.
Maggie the innkeeper was very welcoming, explained lots of details, gave good advice, and did a phenomenal job with the breakfasts and dessert table. Eggs made-to-order, bacon or sausage, pancakes or french toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, fresh muffins, her sister,s stollen, homemade jams, cobblers, cookies pies.... need I say more!
My boyfriends parents do not travel much and have only stayed in a B&B one other time. They were in the lovely wyoming room in the main house and just loved the comfort of the house and the proximity to the treat table. The view out of their sliding doors overlooked the horse fields, flowers, and beautiful woods
We were in a separate house down the lane from the main house and across from the stable that contained 3 rooms and a little kitchenette. There was fresh coffee in this house in the morning to get you through until you made it up to the main house.
The rooms and inn are spotless and in very good condition. Bathrooms seem to be new (modern, clean, no mold). Our room and the parents room had gas fireplaces that put out a nice amount of heat and glow for the chilly nights.
All of us would come back and stay here in a heartbeat!!
Great dinner at Gigi's and Arielle's.
