Best Deal Around

5 on August 29, 2014

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!

About Perfect

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Had a wonderful time.

The property was gorgeous and we were well cared for.

Fantastic trip!

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.

Beautiful property, tranquil creekside location

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.....

The perfect weekend getaway!

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.

Top shelf B&B!

5 on June 10, 2014

Creek Locks B&B is out of the way, but not to be missed! We chose it because we wanted to explore the west side of the Hudson. From the first tour to the last luscious breakfast, Kate and John could not have been more hospitable hosts. Their lovingly restored period home is inviting and furnished with class. No frilly doilies or silly geegaws to be seen (thank God.). Our suite was spacious, the bed delightful, the classic black and white bathroom spotless! Delectable breakfasts --- lemon pancakes, spring veggie fritatta, even local bacon and sausage and homemade jam with hot popovers! What else could we ask for? The gorgeous backyard that runs down to the creek and patio with Adironack chairs gathered around the fire pit? This extraordinary B&B (we have stayed in many) will top our favorites list!

Best B and B I have ever stayed at.

Beautiful home and property. Can't wait to go back.

Fantastic place!

John and Kate were so welcoming. We stayed for 2 nights and it was such a great location and amazing, completely remodeled home. John was fabulous in taking the time to give us wonderful restaurant & hiking recommendations and Kate's breakfast was outstanding. Wyatt, their dog, was a perfect host too. We will definitely recommend to friends & family! A+ all the way.

just perfect

had such a wonderful two night stay at creek locks b&b. John and Kate are exceptional hosts. Relaxed and easy to talk to, they share information about anything and everything, makes one feel very comfortable. stayed in the suite. it was large, spotless and comfortable. even the views were exceptional. breakfast was a gourmet feast. not sure that I can give credit to the hosts for the other guests, but breakfast conversation was wonderful and I learned a lot! The best part? their dog Wyatt. just kidding, really, but if you love dogs, as I do, he is a sweetie and added to the experience. I really can't wait to return.
