My husband stayed in the nautical room at Costello's Guest House last week while taking a class at the Omega Institute near Rhinebeck. The Guest House is only 11 miles from Omega, and it was a more reasonable and very comfortable alternative to Omega campus housing options. There is a small fridge available for guests to use in a sitting/study area. Patsy was a wonderful host, and as president of a local historical society, she was very knowledgeable about the area. He only wishes he had had more time to explore based on her recommendations! They were even able to accommodate his bike in their garage. He would definitely visit again.

Stayed July 2014, traveled solo

Stayed at one of the rooms at Costello's guest house last week. The guest house is well kept - nice clean rooms and bathroom. Patsy was a wonderful host. She gave us a bit of history of the house and also of Hyde Park. Wonderful lady. Why not a 5-star? There were very minor reasons: 1) The AC wall unit in the small room was a bit loud 2) The bathroom is located in the hallway and shared with other guests.

Other than that, it was a very nice place to stay for a reasonable price.

If you want to experience the hospitality of Hyde Park and be close to everything, stay here. It was like being at home. Our hostess was very gracious and she is an historian in her own right. A top recommendatiion!

My husband and I just returned from a two day stay at Costello's Guest House in Hyde Park, and are looking forward to going back. We stayed in the Nautical room (lovely decor!) and enjoyed the sitting room as well, with a comfortable place to read, a handy refrigerator, and a corkscrew! The price was very reasonable and it was so much more appealing than staying at a chain motel. Patsy was very welcoming and her knowledge about the area and dining recommendations (Cranberry's Cafe and the Ever-ready Diner) were much appreciated.

My dear friend from high school and I stayed at Costello’s Guest House to attend an Omega workshop this past October. We rented the separate bedrooms and enjoyed the common room with a refrigerator to discuss the day’s events over wine and cheese. The drive to Rhinebeck each morning was delightful, with beautiful fall foliage on rural roads. Patsy was very helpful in giving directions and making sure we had everything we needed. Her stories about the Roosevelt family and her memorabilia were fascinating. Our only disappointment was that the ongoing government shutdown meant that the parks were unexpectedly closed during our week in Hyde Park.

Even arriving later than planned on a chill off-season visit in late November, we were warmly received and appreciated the home-like comfort of our room. The hostess is also well informed about the remarkable history of Hyde Park and has an excellent collection of books about the Rosevelts, including several for purchase.The home is within walking distance of an excellent cafe and bakery at the center of Hyde Park village.

Room Tip: Of the two rooms, the Canopy room is larger.

Located on a quiet residential street off of busy route 9. Patsy made sure that we were comfortable - and had everything we needed. The rooms were cozy and comfortable and the home is filled with memorabilia - it had the pleasant feel of staying with my grandmother As an added bonus - Patsy's knowledge about the history of the area and the Roosevelts was amazing - she had many, many wonderful stories. Patsy's dining recommendations were spot on - (Cranberry's around the corner has excellent baked goods - and delicious weekend specials). It was a good home base for visiting all of the historical sites in the Hyde Park/Pougheepsie area - we'd definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Two rooms - the canopy room is bigger.
