We stayed at the Creek Locks Bed & Breakfast for 3 Nights during our Honeymoon and it was a absolutely perfect stay. Our room and the whole House is wonderful furnished, clean and had a great location at the river with a fantastic huge garden. We felt absolutely comfortable during our stay and will definetly return if we will be back in the area. John and Kate were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was absolutely perfect. We absolutely recommend to stay at the Creek Locks B&B!

What an amazing weekend we had at Creek Locks Bed and Breakfast! John and Kate are wonderful hosts and have created such a beautiful and peaceful space so that their guests can getaway from the city for some much needed rest and relaxation. Upon entering the property I felt as though I was entering storybook-land and my husband, son and I were quickly greeted by both Kate and their precious dog Wyatt. She gave us a tour of the property and made us feel completely at home. That evening John build a fire in the outdoor pit so that we could enjoy a glass of wine and catch up with some of the other guests. The rooms were immaculate and included all Kiss My Face products, and we awoke each morning to delicious breakfasts made by Kate. She even took into account that we were gluten free and vegetarian and catered to our special dietary needs. On the second morning John made espresso with a stove top espresso maker, and it was delicious. We all are hoping to go back for a visit at Creek Locks very soon, and we highly recommend staying with them if you have the chance!

Innkeepers were knowledgeable about places of interest in the area, restaurants and best routes to get to Hyde Park, which was our next destination. Accommodations were clean and bright...private bath supplied with lotions, bath gel. We had choices for breakfast with homemade blueberry jam for our scones. The frittata and waffles were delicious. Most enjoyable stay,

We stayed one night after a long day helping our daughter pack to move. The room was so attractive and inviting and comfortable. John was an excellent host, welcoming us when we checked in at 9 PM. The location is very quiet and we slept well. The house is beautifully done and the grounds are lovely as well. Breakfast was superb, lemon pancakes and ham and a fresh fruit cup. We had a pleasant chat with Kate and John about the house. Kate is a wonderful cook. We would definitely stay here again.

From the minute I arrived, John and Kate made me feel welcomed. As a solo traveler, my goal was to relax and unwind, while enjoying the beautiful area surrounding New Paltz. John and Kate had many suggestions of things to do in the area and even offered the use of a bike if I wanted to use it. They took the time to give suggestions on places to eat, and also had directions ready to avoid an area where a sinkhole had closed traffic. Creek Locks is clean and sits on a beautiful property. I was so comfortable in my room, which had its own attached bath. I enjoyed reading my book on an Adirondack chair, enjoying the picturesque creek that runs behind the property. Breakfasts were delicious and included peach french toast and an egg strata, paired with fresh fruit and homemade baked goods. A small refrigerator housed water, wine, and beer and was available at any time. Wyatt (the dog) was extremely well behaved and rarely barked. He never went upstairs to the second floor where the guestrooms are located. I truly cannot speak highly enough about this Bed and Breakfast. Some others in the area charge upwards of $200. Don't overpay - stay at Creek Locks!

The house and grounds are beautiful, and immaculately maintained. Tasteful decorations, not fussy or cluttered. Breakfast was excellent, and all "from scratch". John and Kate are very nice people. Set aside a couple of hours for paddling around in the free kayaks on Rondout Creek flowing behind the property. Would also be a good base for a bike ride through rural Ulster Country. My only issue is that house is centrally air conditioned. In typically humid Hudson Valley summer weather that would be a plus, but temperature was only in the low 70's when we were there. Wasn't really noticeable downstairs, but in our bedroom it felt too cold, without any way to adjust it. We would have preferred fresh air, but the storm windows were down and wasn't able to get the supply register shut, We stayed in the Creek View room. A bright, cheerful room with a small cable TV. The relatively soft mattress was supportive. Very spacious, modern bathroom.
We apologize for the "cold night" in the Creek View Room. We do try to keep it cool during the summer months and to alleviate a too cool temperature we installed electric"wood" stove space heaters in each room. We advise guests that if it gets too cool just put on the heater and within ten minutes it usually warms it to a more comfortable temperature. We again apologize if we did not advise you of this option and will keep closer tabs on set temperature for that area. I hope this does not deter you from a return visit.

I drove up from NYC for my one year anniversary, and I couldn't recommend Creeks Locks Bed & Breakfast more. For starters, the house is immaculate - amazing beds, an amazing property, and it's tucked away far enough to make you feel like you're at your own private resort! The hosts were VERY accommodating, recommending great restaurants in the area and helping with anything else we needed. And then there's the breakfast - I'll be d reaming about those pancakes…This is a fantastic place for a weekend trip, I just wished I could have stayed longer! Oh, there’s a also a cute, friendly dog on the property : ) We will definitely return.

John and Kate were extremely accommodating and gracious hosts. Wyatt the dog performed his role perfectly. Breakfasts were great, and the beverages provided for the guests were very welcome. The property itself is exceptional....if one wanted a refuge from the world for a couple of days this would certainly be an option. The northern half of the Hudson Valley is within easy reach from Creek Locks. Stay more than one day.....

My girlfriend and I stayed at John and Kate's bed and breakfast this past weekend and I must say that it was an amazing and perfect experience. The house was beautiful, clean, and spacious. John and Kate were the best hosts and provided a ton of different suggestions for outdoor activities. They also provided very detailed directions and tips to make our outings fun and safe. The breakfast was also amazing. Will definitely go back.
