The blue room was the first guest room in the B&B to be operational. The owners built there business after a traveler had mistaken there home as a B&B. They loved the idea and so the story began. The blue room is a great room to stay in.

Went with a friend here - she was coming from Boston and I was coming from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area. The Hudson Valley was about half way between us. We stayed in the Raspberry Suite - perfect for 2 friends that have not seen each other in a while - nice seating area with coffee table. We decided to have our first night in and asked for some plates, silverware and wine glasses - all were provided easily and left in our room before we got there (wine opener included). Also, in determining where to have dinner on other nights, the B&B has put together a very comprehensive list of restaurants that they happily emailed before our visit. Speaking of food, breakfast was a whole spread - eggs, bacon, pancakes, fresh fruit, orange juice, and coffee. Delicious! The owner is a talker and kept us entertained all through breakfast. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone!

This was a great location and a great suite. We got a tour of the grounds and a bit of the history of the house from the owner. He was a very pleasant and welcoming host with some great stories to share. We enjoyed our stay and the breakfast was great! Looking forward to our next trip and will definitely recommend this B&B to friends!

The Bykenhulle is a hidden gem in Hopewell Junction. The people are very friendly, the room and house was tidy, and there was a sense of family love in the air. We stayed in the Almond Room. The bath, faux fireplace, and luxurious bed were nice to call our own for a couple of nights. Breakfast was lovely, as everyone came together in the morning for a family meal. Fresh, food and beverages were right at our fingertips. We say go if you have the chance!

My husband and I took my 86-year old mother on a trip to New England and this was our first stop. The house and grounds were just lovely, the owner and staff were really pleasant, and the breakfast was delicious. One of their dinner recommendations -- a nearby restaurant called Tiramisu -- was fabulous as well. We were all extremely happy with our stay and wished we had planned to be there for more than just one night. We will definitely go back.

A puffy sweet apple pancake is a great start to the day. The cinnamon and butter swirl together accompanied with coffee or tea and a nice fruit and granola parfait that is the secret to a great day.
