“Wonderful accomodations and generously hospitable hosts”
Reviewed June 22, 2009

What a wonderful way to spend an evening in Salisbury Mills. Carmela and Gene were the most wonderful and attentive hosts. Beyond the rich history of the Caldwell House, was an opportunity to get to know our hosts better and to share family histories and a few favorite recipes. The cookbook is a must have......particularly after enjoying fresh blueberry cobbler, French toast and warm apricot scones. We entered the Caldwell House as strangers and left having met and made two wonderful friends.

My husband and I had a fantastic 2 day get-away. We found the Caldwell house on the internet and were so relieved because it was beyond great. Clean, comfortable and fabulous over the top breakfast. We have stayed at other B&Bs and hotels found on line and been disappointed or deceived by good photos. We loved the Storm King Sculpture park just aroung the corner, and Orange County Chopper!!! And met a wonderful couple (other guests) who were also giving themselves a time-out treat. Congrats to Carmela and Gene for running a fantastic establishment!

Traveled to West Point for the Air Force/Army football game and needed a place to stay post game for 1 night. The wife researched and found the Caldwell Bed and Breakfast, made the call and soon had reservations. The fall colors were in full bloom, and the short ride from West Point to Salisbury Mills was beautiful and scenic. The house was easy to find, and Carmella happily greeted us at the door. This 200 year plus home is immaculate and very quiet. There were 3 other nice couples there, but did not know that until the next morning. There were home made cookies, snacks and drinks available for the munchies, and a grand homemade breakfast the next morning consisting of poached pears, homemade muffins and awesome homemade French toast. Fresh cider and bottomless coffee made for an extremely satisfying start to the day. Gene and Carmella are gracious hosts. They greeted us by name and are extremely knowledgeable of the history of not only their home, but the surrounding area. A real treat and highly recommended.

My wife and I have stayed at dozens of B & B's. This was the very best one, hands down. Caldwell has been named the Best B & B in the Hudson River Valley more than once. I can see why. The decor is authentic but not cluttered. The rooms are spotless and meticulously cleaned and kept up. You couldn't hope for a more delicious breakfast. (Carmela is an award-winning chef.) And the service? Gene & Carmela were helpful when you needed them to be, out-of-the-way when you needed them to be. They were enormously helpful with anything we needed ... and then they seemed to vanish when we needed privacy. They are as talented as they are kind. The house and the setting are gorgeous. And this area of the Hudson River Valley is one of the most beautiful in the State of New York. It was an unforgettable and [----]-near-perfect experience.

If you would like to experience a little bit of heaven, spend some time at the Caldwell House in Salisbury Mills, New York. The Caldwell House is a charming Bed and Breakfast near West Point and not far from Hyde Park, the home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Your hosts, Carmela Turco and Gene Sheridan, are the type of people that you feel you have known forever; and if you are an animal lover, their pet pooch Buffy will steal your heart. Our room was beautifully appointed with historically appropriate furnishings in this 200-year old home. The bed was very comfortable. There was nothing more fun than opening our door each morning and smelling the aroma of warm coffee and one of Carmela's delectable breakfast delights. Gene can help you plan a fun day of sightseeing, and he is a gourmet's delight as he can recommend a restaurant for whatever you might want for dinner complete with directions of exactly how to get there. We had such a good time, and we do hope that these Oklahomans will get another opportunity to revisit the Caldwell House.

My husband and I with our best friends just spent 3 wonderful nights at the Caldwell House. It was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. What a wonderful first start!
First of all this 200 year old house was beautifully preserved and modernized and yet kept with the period of the house. My husband and I shared the Queen bedroom, the Trestle Room. This room was named after a nearby historic landmark. It was furnished with a rope style bed, which was very comfortable, and had a matching 1820 sheraton rope style burear. All of the bedrooms had their own private bath and shower. The entire house was beautifully furnished with antiques.
The house is run by Carmela Turco and Eugene Sheridan, a very nice and friendly married couple. Carmela went to culinary school after retiring from teaching and besides being a fabulous cook, even has her own cookbook, which she will sell.
We had a variety of different delicious homemade breakfast items each morning and homemade cookies all during the day for snacking.
We spent one morning at the dining table in conversation with this lovely couple. It seemed we had known them for years. They have a variety of pamplets on places to visit and eat.
I would certainly recommend this B & B to anyone lucky enough to get the opportunity to visit the area.
