We always look forward to staying with Michelle and Joe. The B&B is just beautiful and they could not be kinder or nicer. This is just a wonderful place to relax and slow down. Morning coffee in their outside garden, listening to the waterfall, is a great way to start the day. Feels like staying with family. Look forward to our next stay with them.
Michelle (the owner) did a wonderful job of corresponding with me prior to arrival. I received directions to the Inn via email, & had no trouble locating it! From the moment I drove up, I knew that this was a special place. I was greeted upon entry by Michelle and her husband Joe. They assisted me with bringing in my luggage, which was extremely helpful! I received a tour of their lovely Inn, and learned that they have been local residents of Haverstraw their entire lives. The home is spotless! Michelle even keeps homemade cookies, coffee and other beverages available at all times of the day/night for her guests. There are several beautiful antique pieces of furniture, and my bedroom was well-equipped with everything I needed for my stay. The bathroom was extremely clean, and the bed was very comfortable! There was even housekeeping service provided each day. Another thoughtful touch, is that a pitcher of ice water was left on the dresser in the bedroom, along with a small bottle of brandy for a nightcap, if desired. I felt right at home, and had everything I needed to enjoy my two night stay. In the mornings, Michelle made quiche from scratch-- and also seeved fresh pastries, juice and coffee. She served her guests in the formal dining room, and had the table set with lovely dish and glassware. I would highly recommend staying at the Bricktown Inn-- I promise you will not be disappointed!
Our overnight was relaxing and comfortable in a charming setting. Little touches everywhere (a little carafe of sherry in the room for a nightcap!). Delicious and filling breakfast in the morning. Would love to stay here again. Our front facing room was still beautifully quiet even on a Saturday night.
First trip to New York and couldn't have asked for a more welcoming host! Joe and Michelle truly go out of their way to make their guests feel part of the family. Rooms are homey and comfortable and breakfasts in the morning are fabulous! I highly recommend The Bricktown Inn
We appreciated all the little touches... the carafe of water in our room, the ear plugs (although we didn't use them but rather slept through the train whistles), robes, nightlights, etc. Breakfast was delicious and hostess accommodated our altering plans by having coffee and muffins to go one morning. Town is a brief walk and provides several dining choices. Overall, a great find for us.
My mom and I had wonderful two days with this lovely inn. Everything seems perfect and we love every piece of furniture, including a piano in the living room. We had much fun by talking with the owners here and two of their grandchildren. It makes us feel happy and warm. They also gave us a lot of advices on where to trip and hike in nearby regions, which made our trip much easier. We are thankful for their hospitality and would love to recommend it many more visitors.
My husband and I had a very nice time! Michelle and Joe were very down to earth and made us feel welcomed there. Loved the added touches like fresh cookies and drinks. Haverstraw does not offer much to do but there are really cute towns a short car drive away.
Michelle is an absolute delight and her inn is beautiful: quaint and cozy, full of amenities and great services. Every morning, a delicious breakfast is served and the inn is filled with a sunroom, living room, parlor--plenty of places to sit back and relax. I'm looking forward to going back!
This was a beautiful, clean and comfortable home. Loved the back yard and especially the front porch with the swing. Michelle and Joe were very helpful in finding restaurants in the area and in answering any questions that I had. There is a train that runs behind there house - can be a little loud at times - but did not disturb my stay - just made it an interesting experience.
Bricktown Inn is located high above, and on the west side of, the Hudson River and the town of Haverstraw, facing toward the east. Out front is a breezy porch with rocking chairs for lounging on a lazy afternoon. In the back yard there is a koi pond. The furnishings are in the best Victorian taste, which included oversize beds with antique quilts and large puffy pillows, period chests of drawers, photos and tchotches. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with subdued wallpapers according to the period, have high ceilings, and lots of trim around windows and doors; and each has an in-room bathroom with shower. The windows are hung with gently billowing sheer curtains. But for me the pièce de resistance was waking soon after sunrise to the sunlight streaming through the curtains. We were warmly received by Kathy the Innkeeper who hosted us during the vacation of the owners. We couldn't have been in better hands. Kathy has hospitality experience from having worked on the airlines. But more importantly she is a consummate cook from her days in catering. During a brief tour of the facilities we entered the large living room with a grand piano, and the garden room with its comfortable settings of plush sofas and easy chairs, a ticking grandfather clock, and an oversize TV. We were stopped in our paces by Kathy's offer of freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies from a cookie jar next to the coffee machine. We entered the dining room, reminiscent of a set from Edith Wharton's "Age of Innocense". To our chagrin our wedding plans also included breakfast the morning following the ceremony. Nonetheless, when the aromas from Kathy's baking wafted upstairs, our curiosity brought us into the dining area, to be tempted by her Breakfast casserole for raisin cinnamon French toast and Blueberry strata and pistachio bread. We were hooked.
My husband and I booked a weekend stay to be near friends in Nyack. The rate was as inviting as the inn appeared to be. Our hosts, inn sitters Kerri and Rick made us feel most at home. Maps were at the ready for the short walk into town where we had an enticing variety of restaurants to choose from for dinner. Breakfasts were outstanding and served in an elegant yet homey dining room. A nice sherry and flip glasses were in our comfortable room. After the first or second time we even got used to the trains speeding along the tracks nearby! Nyack and Piermont are just a short drive away if rough and tumble Haverstraw isn't to your liking. We found everything about our stay delightful and we look forward to returning.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn, everything from check in to check out was just a wonderful experience. This was our first time at a bed & breakfast and we really enjoyed the visits with the owners they were very nice people and very helpful with info on places to eat and visit. Everything was clean and comfortable. Clark & Lorraine
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect backdrop for our wedding morning of pictures - Michelle and Joe were the most gracious hosts and the lunchoen and homemade soup were wonderful. We then got to sleep in and were served a delicious breakfast of homemade omelets, scones and jam. Thanks for all your help in making this weekend even more special....
I found myself in the Hudson Valley doing genealogy research and stumbled upon this B&B through Google. There were several others within the area - but none that seemed to have the charm of this beautiful home. I was not disappointed. Michelle and Joe are wonderful -- and Michelle is living her dream in owning and running a B&B. She goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and at home. My room was comfortable and nice retreat from a long day. The breakfasts were scrumptious, the ambiance perfect and all complimented by great guests and table conversation. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. Haverstraw has many nice restaurants and New City is just a 10 minute trip to even more restaurants. I will be back!!
We stayed at the Bricktown Inn during the holidays and enjoyed our stay immensely. The decorations throughout the house left us with a very warm feeling which made us feel right at home. Michelle & Joe are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome & comfortable. We would highly recommend anyone to stay there.
We had an incredible stay at the Bricktown Inn. We were amazed by Michelle and Joe's friendliness. They both made us feel so welcome and answered all our questions we had regarding the area. The room was so comfortable...we didn't want to get out of that way comfortable bed! We really felt at home there. This is the type of B&B where I could walk into the parlor wearing my slippers at midnight and cozy up on the couch for some reading time before bed. Highly recommended!
This was my first B&B stay and it was amazing. I've stayed here two nights related to work and Michelle and Joe's hospitality was phenomenal. I had no idea about the area but they recommended me to two restaurants which were amazing. Michelle's breakfast was a bomb! The Archer room was clean and cozy. Overall they were amazing people and I will definitely stay here again and recommend the Bricktown Inn to anyone else who happens to be in the area.
We were planning to spend time in the area for a special aniversary and knew of the Bricktown Inn so decided to stay there - we were quite impressed. The owners are lovely, the rooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable, breakfasts delicious and the location is perfect - close to area restaurants and a local route that gives easy access to the entire area.
This place is great for a business traveler. After a long day and very long drive, Michelle & Joe welcome you. I've stayed here twice in the last month because of business in the area. I've had 2 different rooms and both were great. Strong WiFi signal means you can get work done. Breakfast is top notch. Sure beats a generic chain hotel.
I stayed here with my GF last weekend and we were very happy and impressed. Michelle goes the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Based on what I told her we would be doing, she left pamphlets for each excursion. She also included a great restaurant map that she made herself. There were cookies when we arrived as well as sherry for a nightcap! Her cooking was amazing- always multi-course breakfast- fresh fruit with yogurt and bananna bread FOLLOWED by fresh blueberry pancakes with bacon. I was full until dinner. It was nice to relax with the New York Times or Time Magazine in lthe living room. Our room was very comfortable and spacious and there was lots of space on ground level to relax. Beautiful decor with antiques, all of which had a very personal story. The location of the Inn is great- just a few minute walk to town to all the great restaurants. And 15 minute drive to Bear Mountain. We will be back!
We stayed here for one night this past weekend. The picture of the exterior is an accurate reflection of what to expect inside. The place is immaculate and decorated like a B&B should be decorated. Michelle and Joe have done extensive renovations over the years and are excellent hosts. Breakfast was delicious. Wifi available if you need it. Nice TV room . You should be aware however, the house is located close to train tracks and the train whistle can be heard......did not bother us....we thought somewhat quaint. We highly recommend and look forward to returning. Abundance of restaurants in nearby Nyack.
Beautiful place. They really made us feel welcome. The entire place was extremely clean. Very cozy rooms with great linen as well. Breakfast was awesome. Everything was done to make us feel at home. Would definitely stay here again. Two thumbs up! Rich and Mina
This B&B pays attention to the details. The common rooms downstairs are loaded with antiques, and the bedrooms are charmingly decorated with antiques as well, plus thoughtful touches, like sherry for a nightcap in the bedroom. Downstairs fresh cookies are available. The towels are wonderfully soft and the bed is comfortable. There is central air, so the room was nicely cooled. In the morning, a delicious breakfast awaits in the beautiful dining room. At night, enjoy reading on the front porch. There is a loud train that runs behind the house, but it didn't bother us while we slept. The hosts provide ear plugs to drown the noise, but we didn't use them. This is a great B&B if you want to feel pampered and enjoy a dip into the late 1800s with modern amenities.
