This little apartment was so perfect we didn't want to leave! It was immaculate and had everything you could ever want or need to make your stay comfortable. There were guide books and other nice touches that made you feel special. It is literally a few minutes walk down to the river and the many bars and restaurants are all on the doorstep, even though it was so peaceful we slept really well. Plenty of on street free parking and so much to do we didn't have time to fit everything in! We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely place and the very kind and helpful hosts, BC & Larry, to everyone.
My boyfriend and I recently spent a truly wonderful weekend at the Roundout Inn in Kingston, NY. This is a great place to go when you are looking for a perfect spot to relax. The accommodations couldn't have been better - we received a warm welcome from one of the owners, who gave us lots of useful information regarding places to visit in the neighborhood. The apartment itself feels like a 'home away from home' - there is a bakery right next door with great home made pastries and delicious latte. Several excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance. We tried a different place every night and had a great dining experience each time. All in all we highly recommend the Roundout Inn.
Sam's Cottage is a wonderful spot and proved a great get-a-way from the city. Super warm and cozy as we where there over a frigid wintery weekend. It is a simple room but has everything you could possibly need and reflects a high standard of cleanliness. The innkeepers are friendly and extremely generous. It is very convenient to get to and ideally located near New Paltz, Gardiner, and Kingston. Will have to get back there during spring and summer as the golf course mentioned is literally across the street and provides an amazing view with the Shawangunk Mts behind it.
“We had a wonderful visit at the Blue Willow Guesthouse. Pam is a wonderful host that ensures your stay is one of comfort and customized for your needs. She meets you at the house when you arrive, she does not live at the house like some other B&Bs. It is truly a guesthouse with all the comforts of home. She prepares a delicious breakfast and has lots of information and opinions on where to go to make you stay special. Take her advice, we didn’t go wrong with any of her suggestions for dinner. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms have plenty of room for your things. The guesthouse is clean and updated with all the amenities that make for a comfortable stay while getting away from it all. We will go back and would recommend to all of our friends needing a place to stay in the area.”
This inn is very clean and comfortable, and in a great neighborhood. It's roomy, with a full kitchen. Our only complaints: we were given a different suite than the one we had reserved and were confirmed for, which was a bit disappointing since I preferred how it looked in the website photos. And, since the owners live a half hour away, we needed to coordinate our arrival time, which turned out to be later than I had predicted, especially after we'd gotten stuck in traffic. I kept them updated about our timing, but they seemed somewhat annoyed because our delay held up their own plans for the evening. Guests shouldn't have to be concerned about this- it's hard to know just when you'll get somewhere when you are traveling; you get there when you get there. Once we arrived, though, BT was very friendly, warm, and helpful regarding neighborhood dining options.
We stayed 3 nights at the Rondout Inn. Our stay was wonderful. The location was great, close to everything, and in nice area with great restaurants. The suite was well-designed, very clean, and very comfortable. The attention to detail was great. Everything we could possible need was provided. The furnishings were a nice mix of antiques and new items, beautifully placed in the rooms. The sheets and comforters on the bed were new and luxurious. BC and Larry are great hosts. We would definitely recommend staying at the Rondout Inn.
Less than 30 minutes from the bustle of Hyde Park (across the bridge at Poughkeepsie), this is a charming, quiet place to stay. Unlike many b&b houses, which offer a bedroom with shared common areas, Sam's Cottage is more like a private studio apartment that the hosts have designed at the side of their home. Everything you might want is right there: flat-screen TV, comfortable bed, a recliner for two, and many options if you choose the do-it-yourself continental breakfast. (The chef was out of town the night we were there, so we didn't get to try the full breakfast,). The bathroom is small, but has a full-size tiled shower. Overall, this was a great place for my husband, who wears a leg brace: only a couple of steps up to the front door.
We had a wonderful experience. Our room was clean, tidy and kept that way. The hosts made sure that anything that we needed was available. The food was perfectly prepared and the presentation was excellent. All in all, a wonderful stay.
This inn is more than a hotel or motel and, at the same time, better than a B & B (although no breakfast) because of what you get for the price you pay. We only stayed one night but we can see, upon another visit to the area, a multi-night stay. There are all the comforts of home at a hotel/motel or B&B price. All in all, a fine place to stay. There is no dining associated with this inn and that is why the Dining section of our review gets a 3 star.
Well appointed and quiet apartment like suite near the historic waterfront in Kingston. Friendly owners, simple check-in and checkout and everything (including fine restaurants) within walking distance. An added touch was that information about transportation, points of interest and menus were readily available in the suite. Perfect place for a weekend stay with a touch of class.
The rooms at Rondout Inn are really like small well-appointed apartments. We stayed only one night but it would be the ideal place to make your base for a longer stay when exploring Kingston and the Hudson Valley. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and having your own kitchen makes it more affordable.
We stayed here for a week. Very comfortable apartment on the second floor. Nicely furnished. Towels and sheets were delivered mid-stay. Walking distance to the Rondout and great restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.
This is not a "bed and breakfast" in that there is no breakfast provided, which was just fine with us. But every other amenity was provided, including a stocked refrigerator and umbrellas by the front door. There was no maid service, which again was just fine with us, but there were plenty of linens. The owners met us when we arrived to show us around and provide a key, then left us alone, which was just fine with us! Location is great with plenty of good dining around. Our apartment was comfortable and immaculately clean with beautiful hardwood floors. I honestly can't think of a single thing to criticize or improve!
The Rondout Inn is located above a lovey antique shop. The apartment was clean and delightfully decorated with antiques, yet equipped with a modern bathroom and kitchen. It is walking distance to several shops and restaurants and centrally located in the Hudson River Valley. If you stay mid-week, the third night is free. It's a great place to stay and at reasonable prices.
We had read the reviews, so we knew it would be good - but all the subtle touches at Rondout made us delighted with our choice. Everything was spotless and the antique decorations were memorable. It was as if we had our own flat for three days with bedroom, kitchen, living room and office (even hand-made soap in the bathroom and tempting choices on the bookshelves.) The kitchen was fully equipped. The waterfront neighborhood was full of discoveries. What a unique find!
We stayed for three nights at The Rondout Inn and could not have been happier. The welcome was most sincere, and BC made sure everything we needed to make the most of our stay was provided. The Inn was immaculate, very comfortable and a 'home from home'. The Inn was close to some wonderful restaurants, so although the kitchen was well equipped, we did eat out each evening (it was a vacation after all!). We plan to return in the future, there is so much to do in and around Kingston, and of course, to make the most of the hospitality provided by BC and Larry.
Excellent place to stay- clean, nicely furnished. My only complaint is the noise from foot traffic overhead if you are on the second floor.
used the weekday special; stay 3 nights pay for only 2. what a great deal. easy to get to and from local tourist sites. i would definitely stay again. space is much larger than a hotel room at the same price. full kitchen has everything you need if you wanted to eat in.
The Inn is just as advertised. We found our suite comfortable and quiet, extremely clean and well equipped (including a brand new bathroom), with historic quirks and details, in a fun location. Innkeepers BC and Larry are very responsive in email if you have questions in advance and are accessible if you need something during your stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rondout Inn. The location is great with its proximity to the water, lots of wonderful places to eat, and art galleries. The suite was spacious with a very comfortable bed! The full kitchen provided us an opportunity to have breakfast right there, but after coffee, we headed to a fabulous new breakfast place a few shops down. We would stay here again for sure.
I stayed here for a couple of nights in order to go to the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival with my mother. The rooms were wicked cute and decorated with antiques, as the owners of Rondout Inn own the antique store on the first level. The area was great and had a few bars and restaurants within walking distance. The room was more of an apartment than a room and a bit bigger than what we needed, but we absolutely enjoyed our stay. I would probably rent there again if I needed to be in the area.
We stayed in the apartment on 2nd floor and it was excellent. Everty facility we could need ajnd very clean and well presented. BC and larry were so helpfukll and I would recommend this B&B top anyone. In reality it is much more like your own apratment than a room amnd has a full kitchen, and great lounge area. We stayed in six B&B across New England and some were very nice but this gets my top vote. Dining down at the waterfront was also grerat experience with many choices and we took the boat up the Hudson river too.
The mid-week deal of three nights for the price of two was very reasonable. The apartment was clean and provided all that we needed. We were within walking distance of the waterfront and the Hudson River Cruise and only 25 minutes from the Hyde Park attractions, including FDR's home & library, Eleanor's Val-Kill Cottage, and the Vanderbilt Estate. There were many restaurants within walking distance. We highly reccomend the Rondout Inn.
Among the very best places I have stayed along the Hudson River. Rooms are like suites, Hosts are exceptional and caring. Location to Kingston and Rondout is excellent. I did not elect to have breakfast provided. It is optional.
My daughter and I had never visited the Kingston area before and had no idea where to stay. I feel so lucky to have come across the Rondout! It is the perfect stay in this adorable historical riverside town. The room was spacious and comfortable, Larry and BC were so helpful and welcoming, and the Inn is a block away from at least dozen great restaurants fronting the charming riverfront. Parking was easy, right in front of the Inn. I highly recommend the Rondout Inn to anyone looking for lodging in the Kingston area. The only very small suggestion I would make is that there are no black out window shades on the front windows, so it's a little bright if you like to sleep late. This doesn't apply to the bedroom, only to the living room where there is a futon. Other than that though, perfection! Thank you Rondout Inn for a wonderful experience in Kingston, NY!
