Relaxing and peaceful

Our four night stay was the perfect antidote to stress of our daily lives. Homemade baked breakfasts were delicious. The rooms and the grounds are impeccably cared for. The host and hostess are genuine, caring people who provide comfort and privacy.

Our Weekend Away

We recently stayed at The Dominion House and had a wonderful visit. Kathy and Joe were very warm and welcoming and the accommodations were perfect. The breakfast served each morning was magnificent. We will definitely return for another weekend away. Regards, Ron & Lisa Rondon

Very Nice Weekend Stay

The original late 1800's farm house was beautifully maintained. The hosts were friendly and the breakfasts delicious. I felt comfortable and welcomed.

Another wonderful Valentine Getaway

Once again we had another wonderful stay at the Dominion House. We stayed in the honeymoon cottage... it was so cozy.. everything was so clean.. there were freshly baked treats in our room.. sodas in the fridge.. coffee, tea.. whatever you needed was right at your fingertips. We just love it here and hope to come again. Kathy and Joe are the perfect hosts! Thanks again!

My girlfriend and I spent two nights in the Honeymoon Cottage over Valentine's Day weekend, and we both absolutely loved it! The private cottage and the main house were beautiful and very well kept. Even under the snowy winter weather conditions, it was peaceful. The fireplace kept us warm the entire time there, along with the hot tub in the main house. Not to mention, America's "oldest" winery, the Brotherhood, is roughly 3 miles away and open for wine tours and tastings. Definitely add that to the itinerary if there is free time. Kathy and Joe were extremely accomodating, and the breakfasts each morning were delicious. They definitely pay attention to detail and make sure their guests feel at home. I recommend this to anyone, especially to those (like us) who are looking for an easy getaway from the hustle and bustle of the NYC metro area. Cheers!

Sept stay at The Dominion House

Breakfast was exceptional as were the host and hostess. Linens were great the room/cottage had everything you could think of. Wished the fireplace worked. Toliet seemed to have a leak. he outside and decor seemed alittle tired and worn but place was quaint.

Wonderful, warm, comfortable

Great hosts at Dominion House!

Beautiful rooms and grounds, delicious breakfasts, but the best part of our stay was Kathy and Joe's hospitality. Very accommodating, helpful with directions to interesting destinations in the area, without being obtrusive. Good choices when to seat us outside or inside for breakfast; we did both on lovely fall mornings.

Another beautiful stay at The Dominion House

Jo and Kathy provide a beautiful setting, comfort and a great breakfast! We've stayed with them twice and look forward to doing it again.
