“Great getaway”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The 1850 House Inn & Tavern is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway. I was recently there with 3 of my college friends. It was a weekend away with no children or husbands. The suite room was very spacious for the 4 of us. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. They were more than happy to give advise on where to explore in the area and places to try for meals. They serve breakfast and it was very tasty. In would recommend this establishment to anybody who just wants to get away from it all. It is located just 7 miles from New Paltz, NY, a fun little town with lots if little shops. Enjoy!!

We have made several trips to the Hudson Valley winery area over the past few years. The 1850 House Inn & Tavern was in the low key and very small downtown of Rosendale. The owner (Mike) and Inn Keeper (Amy) were very nice and we enjoyed spending time with them. Amy also makes a very nice breakfast every morning. The Inn was completely remodeled and it is very clean. Being a very old building the hardwood floors are original and beautiful but can be noisey but who goes to wine country to sleep in?
There is a very comfortable and large lounge area with a fireplace attached to the tavern for breakfast or coffee or to sit with a glass of wine. The property backs up to a small river and there are a few places to eat right on the same block.
Bottom line is the 1850 House is a nice quiet place to visit with some character and charm but the nice people is what will have us return.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortbable but only 3 have king beds. The West room and room 8 on the third floor...

I spent one night at the 1850 House in April 2013 and had a very good time there. Quiet location, great newly renovated room, lots of charm, and very friendly staff. Couple of bars and restaurants at walking distance.

We were looking for a place to just chill for a weekend after a very busy few months and couldn't have found anything better. As my husband said about our stay here, we didn't just use the Inn (and Tavern) as a home-base but used it as a home. We felt totally welcomed and taken care of at this beautifully restored yet not overly-done inn and tavern. We wanted as quiet a room as possible so we were given a room on the top floor overlooking the Rondout River. That room (and the one across the hall) is a little smaller than the other rooms at the Inn but even my husband, at 6'1" and preferring larger spaces, agreed that we would request that room on our next stay. The Tavern was where we spent both of our evenings and not because we're particularly drinkers, but because we so enjoyed the people there, from the bartender who daily prepares delicious "small plate" foods that we gobbled down, to the innkeeper, the owners and local people who stop by. As another reviewer wrote: affordable luxury - well done!!

My husband stumbled upon this place while we were traveling in the New Paltz area, and all I can say is that I am SO glad he did. It's every bit as gorgeous as all of the other reviewers have described it. (Oddly enough, we're from Brooklyn too.) Modern, cozy, comfortable, full of historic charm, and not an ounce of pretension in the entire place. JKBrooklyn, you nailed it - "a thoughtful, tasteful remodeling of a historic building." We loved it and instantly felt at home.

The owner, Mike, is an awesome host and kept us entertained at the bar. He had lots of great tips for places to go and things to do in the area - stuff we would definitely have missed out on otherwise. (ask him about the nearby cave!)

We looked at a few rooms before choosing one, and I'd say you can't go wrong - such attention to detail in each room. Every room we saw was gorgeous and unique. We decided on one that looked out onto trees and the river. It came with a sweet little gas fireplace, which was a treat. The bathroom was immaculate and stocked with just about every thing you could possibly want or need - totally impressed by this. Also loved the cozy bathrobes - another great bonus. But on to the bed...oh, my god, the bed. Unbelievably comfortable mattress and sheets that were specially loomed for the hotel - and were absolutely decadent. It was a truly luxurious night of sleep.

We'll definitely be coming back here. First rate quality at an amazingly affordable price. Awesome hospitality, excellent bar and staff, plenty of rooms to explore and relax in...play one of the many games they have stocked or check out one of the many books. Or just sit in the back room and gaze out at the water. If you can manage to get out of your ridiculously comfortable bed, that is.

Rosendale is terrific - some great little cafes, shops, and a movie theater that has excellent programming - all in all a great base for hiking at Minnewaska, checking out the Mohonk Preserve and exploring the New Paltz / Woodstock / Kingston areas. If you visit, do yourself a favor and stay here!

Recently spent a night at 1850 House after Amy, the inkeeper, generously gave us a credit when we had to unexpectedly cancel a reservation we had before Christmas. The inn is lovely -- a thoughtful, tasteful remodeling of a historic building that's been a hotel for a century-and-a-half. Well-decorated in a comfortable, modern style with spacious yet cozy public spaces, 1850 House also has a little on-site tavern that seems popular with locals both for its drinks and the tasty small plates it serves. Our room (#8) was a nice corner space on the 3rd floor -- king-size bed, two arm chairs, writing desk, flat screen TV, and a little electric fireplace in addition to the room heating/cooling system. Bathroom was nice if perhaps a bit small, and -- like every other part of the place -- was immaculately clean.

1850 House is set on the main street of Rosendale, one of those little Catskill towns that have reinvented themselves as a kind of rustically cosmopolitan getaway for a particular kind of New Yorker (yes, like so many others reviewing on TA, we too are from Brooklyn...). It's got a handful of nice restaurants (including quite a good vegetarian one right across the street from the inn that turns into a performance venue at night), a proper bakery, a good cheese shop, massage therapy places, a community-supported one-screen cinema showing first run films, etc. The town would be a great base for exploring Ulster county -- we had a great winter hike in Mohonk Preserve and the area is obviously gorgeous and full of things to do in the warmer months -- and I can't imagine a better place to stay than 1850 House.

Absolutely loved this hotel! Amy was such a courteous host, answering my questions about the history and things to do in the area. And the room was extremely comfortable with an over-sized bed, flatscreen TV, variety of soaps and even a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss (I don't think I've ever seen that left for guests). Make sure to have Ben the bartender craft you a delicious cocktail at night, as well as enjoy Amy's scrumptious farm to table breakfast in the morning.
