Another wonderful Valentine Getaway

5 on February 20, 2014

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!

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

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.

While our son was at West Point, we stayed in a number of local hotels and B&Bs. We discovered the Dominion House at the beginning of his senior year, and we certainly regretted not finding it earlier. The Dominion House is well taken care of, the accommodations are nice and priced appropriately. Joe and Kathy are gracious hosts. Breakfast was wonderful every morning. The best days we spent at the Dominion House were during our son's graduation week. We rented the entire B&B, and had friends and family members spread all over the house and cottage. One evening we decided to save a few bucks when we went out and purchased food for a feast. Joe and Kathy welcomed us into their kitchen, and even started a fire for us in their den when the weather outside was unseasonably cold. I highly recommend the Dominion House.
