“Peace and Quiet”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We spent two nights (4/30/13-5/2/2013) in the Antrim Room. The room was lovely and the bed was wonderful - I slept so well. Their rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. There was a working fireplace in the room although the weather was warm enough it was not needed. The room was very neat and clean. The bathroom was excellent as well - although if you like a bath tub there was only a shower - which was fine with us. The have great internet service that is included as well. Breakfast is included and both days the food was wonderful. The innkeepers (John and Dena) are great - making you feel right at home. The are upbeat and friendly. They go out of their way to help you with directions, dinner suggestions and reservations or whatever else you might need while you are with them. The porch across the front of the house had comfortable furniture and was a great place to just sit and relax with a glass of wine. The peace and quiet that surrounds the home helped you to relax and enjoy as well. There was construction going on while we were there - but I never felt it was intrusive and you barely knew it was going on. I would highly recommend this inn.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor - if I were to stay there again I would stay upstairs. It is an old...

After a long week in the city for a business trip, I traveled by the NJ line to the local train station where John, the proprietor, met me and took me to the B&B. A car is a good thing to have to get around to the local area attractions - one can rent one at the local airport. The house itself is lovely and the proprietors are wonderful and very helpful and warm. The breakfast was abundant and tasty. Coffee and the morning paper on the front porch sofa is a wonderful way to start the day!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were lovely & each had distinct character and style. The Tressle room was perfect...

We are so happy you enjoyed your w/e away for "the real world". As a former road warrior myself, I can appreciate how good it feels to be able to find a place to get away from it all.
We enjoyed having you and we sincerely hope you will come to see us again - soon!

We just got back from a long weekend stay at this wonderful B & B. John and Dena were perfect hosts. Dena, your breakfasts were amazing. We felt like family! John was very helpful describing points of interest in his area. Our room was spacious and vey clean. We hope to return again and again. Thanks again for a most memorable weekend.

Thanks! Have you recovered from your "forced march" through all the historical sites? That was quite the agenda you guys had laid out. I hope you got to see everything.
We really look forward to seeing you back here soon,

My wife and I wanted to get away for the weekend to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversay. My niece lives in the area and had suggested the Caldwell House. We were bothpleased with the accommodations. The room was rustic and had an Ipad in the room. With it, I was able to locate a near by restaurant for dinner.
John and Dena were both pleasant and helpful.
Breakfast was amazing.
Dawn cleaned our room was also very pleasant and helpful.
We our planning to return in the Fall to witness the changing of the leaves.

We stayed at the Caldwell House B&B because our daughter was getting married at the nearby Brotherhood Winery. Dena & John were the perfect "hosts". They let us come early the day of the wedding so the bride, the bridal party, my husband & myself could get ready there. We took beautiful photos as well as the photographer. They took care of every need that we had during our stay. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was wonderful! The bride & groom stayed in a beautiful room that Dena & John decorated with rose petals on the bed and a bottle of champagne to toast their marriage and the beautiful day. I know we all will be back again soon to enjoy the local wineries and the Caldwell House B&B!

Room Tip: When we stayed we used every room. Each room was perfect and had every amenity.

I spent last summer in Europe visiting relatives I hadn't seen in over 10 years. You know that feeling, when you instantly reconnect as if no time had passed? Well I had the same feeling with John and Dena, and I was only there for 2 nights!
The house itself is beautifully decorated with nice antique pieces, the room was very cozy and quiet, and the breakfast was delicious. Each room has a mini iPad programmed with all the local area attractions (wineries, shopping, dining, hiking...). If you happen to be there on a Thursday evening, be sure to head across the street to the local pub for live music and friendly people. Until next time:)

Thanks so much for coming to stay with us. The timing of your visit was great - as you got to experience the real "hometown feel" of our little town.
Between getting to meet everyone at the Pub and then running into so many people the next day at Brotherhood Winery, I think you know as many locals as we do!!! :-)
Please come see us again soon!

We have just came back from a wonderful weekend in the Hudson Valley. We stayed at Caldwell B&B and enjoyed every minute there. Our great experience started a week before we left for the weekend, on the phone with John. He so patiently and informatively explained about the B&B, the area and the location. We travelled with our boys, who are 9 and 11, and looked for a peaceful time outside the city. John and Dena, who do not normally accept such young kids, opened their home and hearts to all of us in a way that made us feel so at home and so welcome.

They accommodated every request and desire we had, starting with extra mattress and blankets, to extra incredibly delicious homemade scones and our vegetarian needs. Late in the evening and early in the morning, they were so kind and warm. Dena even offered to watch the boys while we go out. John, without even thinking twice, gave my husband two books that interested him and sat with the kids to watch sports clips for a long time.

Breakfast was so generous and delicious with baked goods, juice and coffee, omelets, fruits and the best company. We will forever cherish the special, personal note that welcomes guests every morning, with information about the whether, trivia facts, flags that represent guests' origin etc.

The house itself is so beautiful and with such interesting history and the room was clean, cosy and airy with everything one can think of including extra toothbrush, iPad, flat TV, and beautiful unique furniture. The house is close to so many points of interest like hiking, shopping, wineries and historic sites.

We simply fell in love with the house and the hosts. We will definitely be back with family and friends. Leaving the house felt like leaving close family. We did not want to leave and we knew we would certainly be back soon. There are not enough good words to describe this special weekend. Thank you John and Dena. Your kindness, warmth and love will stay with us for a long long time.

Would you be available to head up our PR and Advertising Dept??!! ;-)

We've had many guests who have had very kind and wonderful things to say about our B&B but Dena and I truly believe it is the fantastic guests that we have that makes the experience so special. It is so much fun for us to be able to interact with people as nice as you and your family.

Being able to share our special Inn with folks who truly appreciate its charm, beauty, and history is something that we cherish.We would be honored to have you and your family stay with us again.

PS. your boys were so well mannered and mature! They are a true testament to the wonderful job you are doing as parents.
