We spent three nights here while visiting our cadet over Ring Weekend at West Point. John and Dena made us feel right at home with cookies and coffee on our arrival and continued great hospitality throughout our stay -- ipad and Netflix available in the room, dark chocolate for late night snacking, and great recommendations for lunch and dinner -- and of course a great breakfast and very comfortable bed. We enjoyed our time there immensely and will be back!

We chose to stay at Caldwell House the night before the West Point Triathlon instead of one of the local hotels in Newburg. We realized we wouldn't have a lot of time to enjoy the house because of all the things we had planned to do in the area, but we decided to stay there anyway because we knew it would be a great way to relax before the triathlon. We're certainly glad we made the decision!

We arrived Saturday afternoon and received a warm welcome from John, who gave us a short tour of the house before taking us to our room. When we explained that we needed to leave for the triathlon by 7:00 am and would miss breakfast, he immediately asked Dena what could be done to help us out. She quickly told us that she would make a parfait with yogurt, fruit and granola and leave it in the refrigerator. John then showed us where to store the bike for the night and printed out a map with directions to the start of the triathlon. Our short stay was definitely off to a great start!

After we settled into our room Saturday afternoon, we decided to head to Woodbury Commons for some outlet shopping. Before we left, Dena armed us with a voucher for a discount coupon book...and insider information about the best place to park. We grabbed a few treats from the parlor before we left and then set out for the mall.

Sunday morning brought and early start for us. (Thank goodness there was coffee in the parlor!) When we went to the kitchen to get our breakfast, we found a goody bag in the refrigerator with two generous servings of parfait, along with brownies, water and bananas. Needless to say, we wished we were going to be around for Dena's renowned breakfast that we'd read about, but her goody bag was a pleasant surprise and definitely filled us up!

When we returned from the triathlon, John and Dena had just left for church so we freshened up and prepared to depart. Meagan made sure we knew there was no need to hurry and asked if there was anything she could get for us. A bottle of water sounded really good, so the lovely young lady helping Meagan clean the rooms got a couple from the refrigerator as we were leaving. Needless to say, the hospitality we received at the Caldwell house continued right up to the very end of our stay!

We hope to travel to the lower Hudson Valley more in the future and will definitely consider staying with John and Dena again...if nothing else than to enjoy that breakfast we missed out on this time!

We booked at the very last minute, but John was very accommodating. The Inn was lovely, the details adorable, and the breakfast was delicious. Before we left, we were already planning our return visit.

We found this site on the Internet and sometimes you just don't know what to really expect. This place had it all!! Very welcoming host and hostess, charming, immaculately clean and recently updated accomodations with all the latest amenities, such as Internet, flat screen TV, blue tooth and air conditioning, Sunday newspapers and a wonderful breakfast in a home style setting.

Only had 2 days in Hudson Valley and this place fit our needs perfectly. Beautiful home, great amenities, and interesting discussions with other guests at a hearty breakfast. Hosts are just delightful and so hospitable! Added to a terrific visit to the area.
