“A Must Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Caldwell House over New Years Eve/New Years Day and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were fantastic, a nice mix of old charm and more modern touches. Breakfast was great, and John and Dena were incredibly warm, welcoming hosts. It's too bad we were only able to stay one night. We'll definitely be returning!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Calwell house for a relaxing weekend away from the city, it was fantastic! John and Dena were extremely accommodating and fantastic hosts. Both breakfasts were absolutely delicious. We stayed in the Freedom Trail room in the carriage house and it was absolutely worth it. Highly highly recommend reserving a room with a fire place-- not because the house is cold (very cozy, and you can adjust the heat in your room) but because it really added to our stay and made us feel even cozier. Hope to come back and highly recommend!

Room Tip: Freedom Trail in the Carriage house has a fire place and a jacuzzi!

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. When we decided to remodel the Carriage House we decided that it was important to have a room that was completely separate from the others so that we could accommodate small families or others with special needs.
The architect and builders did an awesome job and the room is providing guests with just what they were looking for.
We hope to see you often over the coming years!

This past New Years, I stayed at the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast. Although I have been a guest several times in the past, I figured it was time to write a review. John and Dena are spectacular hosts and their professionalism, and welcoming personalities truly made my stay even more remarkable. When I arrived, they brought me throughout the main house of the B&B to give me a tour to see the new (and beautiful I might add) renovations! The room I stayed in, "Tressel", had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, I was amazed! The room, bedding, and bathroom were especially clean. The housekeeping staff, whom I also met, were very friendly and accomodating. I also find it unique how every room had an iPad in it. It made making plans for new years, finding restaurants, and figuring out directions easy when I was relaxing before bed.

The amazing hospitality, Dena's decadent food, and the unparalleled service and comfort John, Dena, and the staff of the Caldwell House provided are a few of the reasons why I tell all of my friends and family about it. John and Dena run an amazing business, and the success of the B&B is an outstanding reflection of their hard work, dedication, and passion for the industry and their guests. If you have not stayed there before, it really is essential for you are missing out on one of the greatest B&B experiences in the Hudson Valley!

Excellent job John and Dena - keep up the great work!!

We decided to spend the night at the Caldwell House while house hunting in the area.
We made the right decision.
We literally spent hours talking to Dena and John. They were full of great information and advice.
The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable, and the jacuzzi was just what we needed after a long day. From the IPad in the room, to the fireplace, cookies and coffee, all the perfect touches were there. They also recommended tons of things to do and restaurants to try.
Dena's breakfast was amazing, with an interesting and delicious curried fruit and the best lemon poppyseed with orange muffin.
All was outstanding. A must try!!

Let me start by saying, when we arrive we were greeted by Dena and she immediately made us feel at home. She took us on a brief tour and showed us our room. We stayed in the Harmony Hill Room. The room was well decorated, loaded with technology, and simply comfortable. The bed was top quality. They even had a I-Pad in the room for our use. They thought of everything.

Aside from the amenities of the room, the house itself was beautiful. We did not spend a lot of time in the common areas due to our our schedule. I can't say enough about John and Dena, the hosts. They made us feel like family. They made sure we were comfortable. The breakfasts were fabulous. Sunday we had Gingerbread French Toast. That alone was worth the trip!

If you are thinking about staying in Orange County, NY, there is nothing to think about. Stay at the Caldwell House. If it is not available on the dates you want, change your dates. It is that good.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Room Tip: The Harmony Hill Room was fantastic. Love the double sided fireplace.

We really appreciate your wonderful review. We are so proud of how the Harmony Hill (and now the Carriage House) renovations have turned out.
We set out to provide our guests with not just simply a Bed" to stay in but a room that they will enjoy spending time in.
We really hope to see you again soon!

She and her husband wanted an eleagant small wedding with just our immediate family. There are no words to describe how wonderful Dena and John were and how they gave such attention to every detail. My family and I were blown away by their hospitality and we will never forget how special and beautiful they made this day. Truly amazng individuals!!!

We can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed hosting the wedding and having your wonderful family here with us.
Everything about Pamela's story is so moving and incredible. Being a small part in helping to get her married life off to a great start was an honor we will cherish for a very long time.
We sure hope to see you and all your family members here at the Caldwell House again!

All the best for a happy, healthy, and safe Holiday Season,
