ElmRock Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 6 Stone Ridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 21, 2010

My husband and I were looking for a relatively last-minute getaway, and found SparrowHawk through trip advisor. We arrived on the late side of a snowy Friday night and were met very warmly by the innkeeper, who recommended a good place for dinner.

We had the largest room on the ground floor and it was quite cozy, though the decorations were a bit kitschy and cluttered for my taste. The house itself is lovely, with exposed beams and wide-plank floors though it does feel a bit like you're staying at your kooky Aunt's house. It is also right on the main road, so there was quite a bit of car noise throughout the night. Not a huge deal, but it did keep me up a bit.

There was a beautiful fireplace in the room with a gorgeous mantle, but it was decorative only, and had a kind of cheesy LED fire-light heater in it (no real flames!). The bed was a king and very comfortable, and the bathroom was huge. I've had friends with apartments smaller than that bathroom.

The best thing by far is the amazing breakfasts. I'm talking filled omelets, huge waffles with fresh cream, bacon, delicious coffee. The works. We didn't have any need for lunch on either day. It was all delicious. There happened to be another couple from New York City staying that weekend and we had a great time having breakfast together, chatting over coffee. It was really nice.

All in all, we had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves. It's not fancy, but it's extremely comfortable and the owners are very sweet. I would definitely go back.

First off, Marietta and Mom are wonderful hosts. You are made comfortable from the minute you walk in. It's like staying at your own home. It is beautifully decorating, very romantic and charming. The breakfast is out of this world. You must try the belgian waffles. We had apple cinnamon and pumpkin with fresh vanilla cream. To die for!!!! The omlets melt in your mouth and its all you can eat!!! The rooms are clean and comfortable. We can't wait to go back!!

My family and I stayed here after spending the day at the Mohonk Mountain House. It was only a five minute drive away and after a day of hiking, this charming bed and breakfast was just what we needed. The rooms were all very clean, there were tons of movies to choose from, and board games for the whole family to play! The next day we had the most delicious breakfast and hiked the trails in the backyard. Marietta was a wonderful host...we can't wait to go back again!

We arrived late on Friday for our big event on Saturday. We arranged the day about four weeks before. What we had planned vegitated in our minds for many months, but !!!
You see we were getting married, however I originally had my mind set on a location here in New York city. When I failed to find what I wanted in the city I recalled our lovely New Year's getaway at SparrowHawk. The quiet and beautiful accomidations, and the care and consideration of the two lovely women who own and manage the hotel, sold us on the fact that they would again do everything in their power to make our event a joyous happening. And that is truly what they did. Again Marietta and Mom we both thank you for being as you are thoughtfuly and loving people, kindest regards Frank and Aurora

My girlfriend and I stayed at SparrowHawk Affaires over Labor Day weekend to "get away from it all" which turned out to be the best weekend of the summer! Marietta and "Mom" are wonderful people - the food is farm fresh, organic and prepared with a hearty country style love. The grounds of SparrowHawk Affaires are so beautiful and relaxing, we spent every night sipping wine on a 2 person swing next to a crackling fire in the backyard fire pit looking up at the stars and enjoying the quiet summer nights. The B&B and Carriage House are rustic, authentic and full of historic area artifacts which are appointed throughout the premises. Can't wait to return for Fall and Winter weekends! Exactly what a B&B should be...
