“Great Location - Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Stayed at this bed and breakfast with new ownership. The new owner, Valerie, was very accommodating. Stayed in the Outback Room which is a great room, comfortable bed and luxurious bedding. This B & B is very clean and so convenient to the Vanderbilt Mansion (across the street), Culinary Institute and Roosevelt estates. The breakfast (both days) was delicious and the nice, long dining table was conducive to enjoyable morning banter with other guests from all around the United States. Have stayed here (Tuscany Room - another very nice room - shower, no tub) previously under former owners and found Valerie to be exceptional and willing to answer questions and help in any way. Refreshments (drinks & cookies) available and plates of chocolates a plus!

As new owners we really appreciate when past guests offer their positive feedback! Thank you so much for coming back and allowing us to show you and your friend Mary that we offer the same great experience you've had before at the Journey Inn. We've kept the things that make the Inn so special - like our family-style breakfasts - and added some things that have become very popular - such as our plates of chocolates! I have to live with a few candy wrappers around, but they do seem to make folks happy. All the best to you - and thank you for taking the time to offer such a lovely review.

Not too far outside the city. Right across the street from the Vanderbilt Mansion. Great location - close to Poughkeepsie, wineries and surrounding areas. Great rooms, lovely innkeepers (Val and Eric are so nice!) and good food...Roasted peaches and mascarpone...Need I say more..?!

Highly recommend this place!

Oh and ladies, Val has these great towels for wiping off your makeup. Really nice touch.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Outback room

It was so great meeting you and Aidan - and thanks for bringing a little bit of Brooklyn back to us! Eric and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to write such a nice review. Yes, the location is great - and I am so happy you liked our breakfasts (I've said it many times, but we take great pride in our breakfasts) Hope to see you both again - I am sure your brother would love many visits!

From the moment my husband and I drove up we felt like we were visiting friends at their lovely home rather than a typical B & B. Valerie the energetic new owner greeted us and showed most of the rooms, are all different and charming. The suite down at the end of the hall is unbelievably large and gorgeous. We however chose the Kyoto room with the hall bath since our visit would be short. We found the Inn to be impeccably clean. The bed was really comfortable and the room decor attractive and up to date. The bath is oversized (50’s pink) with a wonderful shower and the robe they provided was perfect. I am allergic to feathers so I was even given a different pillow. The dining room is a beautiful room with one huge table surrounded by windows surrounded by lots of greenery and open to the sitting room with a fireplace – all very homey! Breakfast was more than ample with many interesting people conversing from all over the world. Actually you can skip lunch, it was so delicious and filling (and gluten free for the guest who had dietary restrictions.) If you want a really tasty dinner right nearby we would highly recommend the 2 Taste Food & Wine Bar where I had the pork dish and it was scrumptious. (Eric had several recommendations and this was one.)

I would highly recommend this inn to anyone traveling in the Hudson Valley region. You will be very comfortable and treated very well by Eric and Val and Val's parents. You will want to return over & over again!

Room Tip: Budget minded should choose the Kyoto room. The suite at the end of the hall was very impressive!

It was so nice having you and Patrick with us - and thank you for taking the time to post this terrific review. We really do appreciate the support and your comments about the Kyoto room. I agree that it is the best deal in the house - nice size room with a large private bath in the hall. I am always so pleased to see the positive comments about our family-style breakfasts. I agree that our guests are so interesting and the breakfast conversations are always so animated. It is very useful as our guests do share their dinner experience the night before and advice on their favorite sights. I am not surprised that many guests change their plans after the breakfast conversations. And thanks for mentioning the "change of pillow" as we do work hard to accommodate our guests requests as much as possible, especially allergy issues and dietary restrictions. Do hope to have you guys back soon. Thank you!

If you are visiting the beautiful and historic Hyde Park area, staying at the Journey Inn is a must! The inn is located on a convenient main road. Although, as soon as you pull into the driveway, you feel as if you are in a quiet, wooded and rural area. The grounds are lovely and the inn peaceful. Once inside, the inn is welcoming, clean and tastefully decorated. The rooms are pristine. In addition, the owners are knowledgeable about the area attractions and restaurants, making your visit easy to organize and stress-free. Last of all, the breakfast was amazing!!! I visited for two nights and had two breakfasts that were as delicious as they were unique and healthy!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. I am so happy that you and "the girls" had time to spend together at our Inn. I am so glad that you were able to enjoy a stress-free weekend - and all the great things the area has to offer. Our location is just perfect for seeing the sights and because we were once part of the Vanderbilt estate - our large, old trees do offer that wooded feeling. Can't wait to have you all back again!

From the moment you arrive to the second you leave the warm hospitality of Val the owner is refreshing. The accommodations are impeccable. The room was beautiful and I must say SPOTLESS. The grounds are beautiful and inviting for an afternoon of leisure. The decor is warm and cozy. The breakfast was home made baked French Toast with honey....delicious and plentiful. On arrival Val walked us through the room and showed us all the amenities of the Inn. The Inn is located within a short distance from all the historical attractions of Hyde Park and the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). We had a wonderful dinner at the CIA one evening and returned to our beautiful bedroom to relax from a fun filled day. Bed was so comfy. The room we had had no TV or Radio but did include free WiFi. If you are traveling to Hyde Park or Rhinebeck NY don't miss the this gem The Journey Inn, even nicer than the website photos
Thanks again Val for a wonderful stay.

I could not be more pleased that your stay was so enjoyable - it was just terrific having you and Andrew here - I am just sorry it wasn't a longer stay as you brought a lot of energy and joy to the Inn.

Without doubt, we felt more welcomed and attended to at Journey Inn B & B than any other B & B we have ever stayed in. Valerie & Eric were helpful, attentive, and simply easy to talk to about just about anything! The family-style breakfast at 8:30 was a lovely way to start the day & mingle with the other guests. I think that really added to our feeling of being at home in the inn rather than guests staying in someone else's house. We stayed in the Mombasa room and like other guests did find the bed more firm than is our personal preference. The bathroom was small, but functional. The water flow in the shower was very light, but that may be due to flow restrictors. To end on a positive note, the location of the inn was indeed excellent with many attractions, adventures & restaurants very close by.

And you were both such welcome guests - Eric & I also very much enjoyed our conversations with you - and were so happy that you enjoyed our dinner suggestions. We take much pride in our breakfast "event" - and are so pleased that you and our guests get along so well, have such great conversations, and provide great sightseeing/dinner suggestions to each other. BTW - Eric says hold on to that Audi!

A wonderful B& B! A very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and air conditioned room, beautiful grounds, right near major historic sites to visit, and innkeepers Valerie and Eric were wonderfully accommodating! Breakfasts were delicious too!

It was so wonderful having you and Joe with us this past weekend. You were both such lovely guests and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to give us such a nice review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay and I do look forward to having you back at our Inn - however, next time we might not be able to offer the large group of history teachers!
