One of the loveliest experiences I have ever had! I was in heaven! The house and property are so beautiful; it is like visiting an English Country Estate. But there is nothing pretentious about it because the family (Lynda, Frances, and Chuck) is very down to earth and makes you feel incredibly welcome; just like a member of their family in the best sense. They are there to chat with when you want and left alone when it is time to enjoy the beauty and solitude of the surroundings. I went with a friend and from the moment of arrival we knew we had ‘picked a winner’. We were greeted warmly, given a tour of the home (wait until you hear its’ history), and then treated to refreshments on the porch to relax and settle in. This was easy to do because the porch overlooks lovely gardens, trees, streams and nature at its best. The rooms are thoughtfully and thoroughly furnished, impeccably clean, warm, and comfortable. Every need is anticipated with tons of special touches like water, sodas, and chocolates in the room; coffee, teas, candies, biscuits always a step away and homemade refreshments waiting for you in the evenings. But then comes your gourmet breakfast in the morning (an amazing menu to choose from); served wherever you like - in the simple & beautiful dining room, out on the porch, the sitting room, living room….so many places to choose from. And the food is heaven; Lynda is a fantastic cook in addition to being a perfect hostess. She is assisted by Frances (Lynda’s mother) and we delighted in conversations with both of them. We felt so taken care of! On our strolls thru the grounds we had great discussions with Chuck about everything from the history of the area to tractors. It was a fabulous visit from start to finish and we are already planning our next visit and bringing friends. I cannot recommend this beautiful bed & breakfast highly enough. Mary B., New York City

This was our second visit to the Stone Rose and like our first in June 2012, we had a wonderful time. Lynda, Chuck and Fran were charming host/hostess and we felt spoiled. We walked the property on one of the most beautiful days of the year and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of a very special piece of heaven. I always hate to leave and can't wait to return next year. Next time were going to take a picnic lunch and make an afternoon of our walk, there is so much to see.

From the start to finish we could not have imagined a getaway more perfect, except for the weather, but the warmth of the Innkeepers made up for that!

I am the happy recipient of the luxury for which this wonderful bed and breakfast Stone Rose offers. The room has a sense of relaxation and beauty. The food is done with skill and taste. The unexpected extras show a sense of graciousness. The innkeepers are quick to share stories of the land and community allowing me to understand what has been before and exists today. My stays here always tops the last. Stone Rose truly gives the traveler a traveling home and a welcome to return.

Elegant and extraordinary, yet with an unpretentious and relaxed feeling of a house filled with family love. Stone Rose Inn is, on all levels, the best B&B my husband and I have had the pleasure of visiting! Upon arrival, Lynda and Miss Frances greeted us each by name, and with smiles and welcoming gestures that immediately seemed to be saying, ‘Welcome home!’ From that moment on, that’s exactly how we felt. We soon met Lynda’s husband, Chuck, who echoed the welcoming greetings, and shared the warm feelings of home. We stayed in the Garden Room, which was beautifully decorated and immaculate! The crystal clear window pane to the garden view, gave the feeling of sitting on a private balcony, overlooking the estate. Yet, it only gave a glimpse of the beautiful property we later found to explore. As we toured the house and property, it became quite evident that this beautiful B&B has been a family labor of love. Each of our hosts seemed to have a wealth of knowledge, history, and a story or two, attached to the property and every item in the home. The attention to detail is impeccable. The food plentiful, with lovely treats appearing from time to time, ‘just in case you might be a bit hungry from your hike’. For breakfast we enjoyed, Stone Rose Eggs Benedict....a work of art..(we took pictures)! The newly appointed gift shop also holds beautiful items, old and new. Many, with a story of their own, making you want to bring them into your home, to share the story, with those you love. Clearly, Stone Rose Inn is a Bed and Breakfast you need to experience to truly understand the gifts it offers. Denise and Dave, Rotterdam. Jct., NY

When we need to get away from everyday life, we book a stay at Stone Rose. From the moment we walk in the door to the time we leave we are treated like members of the family who have come for the holidays. Our suite is always comfortable & filled with little touches here & there like, fresh flowers, chocolates, fireplace, music set to our favorite station & a variety of books to browse thru in our suite or in their library which is like a page out of history. The innkeepers go out of their way to accommodate you by making your dinner reservations after reviewing with you the many choices in the area. When you arrive home from dinner a home baked dessert waits for you in your room. When you wake in the morning & head downstairs you hear the soft cheerful voices in the kitchen as they prepare your breakfast & the aromas promise you that something delicious is on its' way. As you enter the dining room which is filled with sunshine & the old Victorian charm that compliments the personalities of our innkeepers you start to wish that you could make your stay longer than it is. Lynda & Frances take turns coming into the dining room to serve you & give you the quiet you would like or the conversation that lifts your spirits as you make plans for the day. You must plan to take your time & enjoy your breakfast as there are many courses of delicious treats that appear every time the kitchen door opens. Lynda has many talents as an Innkeeper; her culinary skills are spot on & a real treasure. In the winter we enjoy snowshoeing on their private estate of open spaces & secluded trails & if sledding is more your speed, they have the BEST hills for it. In the spring & summer we love to sit on their porch that oversees the most fragrant rose garden as we enjoy their many flavors of tea, play board games, read or put together a puzzle. When saying goodbye you will already be looking forward to when you will be back again for another visit at Stone Rose.

We were given a night at this beautiful Inn as a gift by family who enjoy staying here every year. Even though they had raved about the Inn, grounds, and hospitality we just didn't "get it" until we stayed. Lynda, Chuck & Frances went above and beyond any and all expectations. We have stayed at other B&B's, and the Stone Rose was, hands down, the most wonderful experience we have had yet. We have decided to make our trip here a yearly treat! Thank you Lynda, Chuck, and Frances!

The B&B was gorgeous; every room was a new scene with charming details that drew us in. Our hosts couldn't have been any more warm & helpful. The food was beyond expectation -- delicious and presented beautifully. I hope to return!
