The personality and hospitality of our host made our B&B experience at pickerel Rush most satisfying. The pool was especially special. Our host made us a yummy hot breakfast. She was most accommodating & repeatedly went out of her way for us!

First of all The Pickerel Rush is beautifully appointed and a true victorian. But the most attractive feature of the facility is the on-site owner, Karen. You will never meet a more gracious host. She has redone this beautiful Victorian all by herself. Her Talents are endless. Karen decorated the whole place all by herself. Painted all by herself. Tends the grounds with minimal help from part time employees. Whatever time she has remaining in her day is then spent making improvements to her beautiful house and cooking for her guests. The tailor made curtains that were made by karen are as beautiful as her custom hats. So much talent wrapped up in a cheerful package! I am not a huge fan of Newburgh but it is worth staying with Karen and getting a taste of the Beautiful Hudson Valley. We love Karen and Pickerel Rush!!!!

This B&B was a Shangri-la!!!! Amazing accommodations...very comfortable,very clean,very enchanting.We have stayed at many B&B places around the world and this was exceptional. Our friends from Australia had told us about this one when the 6 of them stayed here last summer. They were also Raving Fans of the owner and place. The owner Karen went so far out of her way to make our visit PERFECT. The home was exquisite...filled with unique antiques. All the rooms were beautifully appointed. The home was approximately 7000 sq.ft.....with a huge front porch and back porch. The luscious grounds were kept like a botanical garden with a spectacular Inground pool. The home was located very close to shopping,restaurants and easy to get to I-84,Thruway and Taconic State Pkwy. The beautiful Hudson River was within walking distance where we dined all of the 4 nights at riverside impressive restaurants. We can't imagine anyone finding any negative issues with this Beautiful B&B and wonderful hostess,Karen DiZefalo. If they did there has to be something wrong with them. Do yourself a favor and don't miss it!
