We chose the Borland House mainly because of its location--we wanted to visit the FDR library in Hyde Park and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on the same weekend. The location was ideal for that. The proprietors of the Borland House were very accommodating and generous. All the breakfast options were delicious. We stayed in the oldest part of the house, which was interesting but the room is small.
Joan has reestablished her childhood home into a wonderful B&B with amenities from the earliest part of the families history to the present. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. And the breakfasts were awesome!
My boy friend and I like to get away for long weekends and drive somewhere not too far from the city. Our stay at the Buck's Homestead Bed & Breakfast worked out perfectly for one such get away. We spent two nights at Joan's warm and cozy home which meant we got to have two of her delicious and hearty country breakfasts. We were also lucky to have been the only guests those two nights so we enjoyed complete privacy moving about our bedroom, the sitting room and our private bathroom. The welcome we received from Joan was warm yet unobtrusive. It started with packages of chocolates and homemade cookies and ended with her own little booklet of her favorite breakfast recipes. And in between, there were bottles of water in the refrigerator and a Keurig machine with a supply of single-cup coffees and teas. Everything was clean, the queen-sized bed was comfortable, and there was a full supply of basic amenities, even dental floss and toothpaste. We would go back to Buck's Homestead if we happened to be in the neighborhood again.
Been coming to Tin Brook for the last 3 years and absolutely love it. The staff is so nice and the Breakfast they serve is so delicious. We are planning on returning at least once a year for many years.
My wife and I recently stayed there for our wedding night and had a great time! The owners were very personal and professional. They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne in our room for our special day. I would recommend the Borland House to friends and family and will definitely consider staying there again!!
My wife and were traveling to Walden, NY to welcome my new Grandson into the family. I looked online for a place and found the Tin Brook Inn to be appealing. When we arrived we were greeted by David who was very helpful and amiable. He showed us to our room which had quite a wow factor. It was stunning, beyond our expectations. Breakfast was good, typical American fare. David did note that he would cook anything that we wanted. Our stay was very enjoyable, we hope to stay there when we visit the area again.

As a family of 4 (including two kids under the age of 3) we stayed for 3 nights in the 'Orange Grove' suite. The suite was very clean and spacious, an excellent alternative to hotel chains. Parents with kids can appreciate what a nightmare hotel stays can be... It served as a great home base as we met with extended family in New Paltz, and visited Wallkill Bethel. Breakfast was waffles and bacon, coffee, juice, etc. No complaints!
This was my first experience in a US bed and breakfast, and it was very nice. I loved our room - the pear room. I was impressed that the owner himself served us breakfast. I would definitely recommend, and stay here again.
Thank you Joan for an awesome stay at your home. We had a most delightful stay in your charming Bed and Breakfast. My girlfriend and I typically go away in the fall for a "Girls Get Away" from all our kids and husbands. This was the terrific spot for us to start our adventures in the Hudson Valley. We thoroughly enjoyed your warm welcome, comfy accommodations and fabulously delicious breakfasts. The little town of Montgomery was adorable and your tip to head down to Cold Spring for antiquing and lunch was perfect too. Thanks again for a marvelous stay.
No doilies. No overflowing bowls of potpourri. Clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent service. Great value. Incredibly clean. Very good breakfast. David was an exemplary host. I'd definitely stay here again!
Staying at the Borland House was like visiting old friends. Bill & Carol were warm and welcoming, and always helpful with information about the house, the village, and the area. We stayed in the Isabella Room, in the part of the house that was built in the 1700's - very comfortable, impeccably clean. The breakfasts looked as if they came from a magazine, not only beautifully presented, but generous and delicious as well. I hope to return there in the future.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our far too short stay (one night) at Buck's Homestead. This is a beautiful farmhousethat is filled with memorabilia of its former dairy days. The room was great and Joan has thought of all the amenities you might have forgotten and need in the bathroom like toothbrushes, health and shower products etc. Our room looked out on a field of sweet corn with the workers bringing in the harvest. Breakfast was hearty and delicious in a relaxed atmosphere with the satellite radio playing Josh Grobin. We will be back.
Very different from other B+Bs we have stayed at. However, it cost way less than the romantic inns. Cost was less than discount motels, and way nicer. Comfortable bed. Beautiful bathroom. Glad we stayed there instead of a motel.
We came up for the weekend to see Sleepy Hollow and do some wine tasting. The room was clean, but we found a frog in the tub and the drain did not work. The breakfast was adequate, but not as extensive as other b&bs we've been to. The location was great for doing the wine tour. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We have already booked our next stay
I stayed here on a recent trip to the area. The home is really beautiful and the location is convenient but peaceful. Fortunately, I really like cats, but if you are looking for a B&B in this area and don't like cats, don't stay here. They are everywhere and the first floor smells like cat litter (that really perfumy clean cat litter smell, not like cat poop). There are also some issues with bathroom ventillation and smells in general, so you shouldn't stay if you have sensitive sense of smell. However, our room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was very spacious and up-to-date for a house from this era, the breakfast was delicious, and we had a very pleasant stay.
We could not have had a better stay at the Borland House Bed & Breakfast! The owners were friendly and welcoming, and simply amazing cooks! Innovative and creative breakfasts were served each day with warm smiles and good tips for "must see activities" in the area. Thanks Carol and Bill!
We stayed for two nights over a weekend in August 2014. We stayed in the Montgomery room which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. It was our first time to the Hudson Valley and very much appreciated all the suggestions for local restaurants, hikes and wineries that Bill and Carol (the proprietors) shared with us. The breakfast was outstanding!!!!! We plan on definitely returning. Their hospitality and accommodations were just lovely!
Visited the Borland House for 2 nights in August 2014. Being new to B&Bs, we were not sure what to expect - and were beyond pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and food provided by Bill & Carol. We reserved the Isabella room, but were graciously upgraded (free of charge) to the Montgomery room - which was a treat. I cannot say enough about how warm and welcoming Bill & Carol both are - they truly make it a welcoming home to visit. Even if the hospitality and lodging weren't superb, I would also likely return simply for the amazing breakfasts. Highly recommended and cannot wait to return!
I recently spent an evening in the orange grove suite with my brother and his two children. David greeted us with a big smile and told us abit of history about the place. He was friendly and made us all feel very comfortable staying there. The property seemed vast and well manicured. Our suite was impressively clean and very nicely decorated. When I travel I am always concerned about the bed due to the fact I have spinal issues from a car accident. I found my bed very comfortable. I slept great and awoke well rested. The bed was as good if not better than my expensive new sealy posturpedic mattress at home. We had a nice breakfast which was served in the gift shop due to the dining room being renovated. It was a comfortable setting and the gift shop was filled with interesting craft type gifts. We even bought a gift for my sister there who we were visiting this trip. David was very tolerant of the children wandering around looking at everything. The Tin Brook is a family friendly place. I look forward to returning for the fall foliage experience. I would highly recommend this place.
