Welcome to Hilltop House Bed & Breakfast, a lovely rambling asymmetrical shingle style home built in 1909. Located in the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley, amidst a bevy of beautiful horse farms in the Berkshire foothills. Hilltop House is a great weekend getaway with a cozy 'home-away-from-home' atmosphere.
Stretch out your legs for a peaceful rest in our antique cannon bed. General Washington is said to have stayed throughout the valley, perhaps he slept here.
An antique chaise compliments the lovely white antique dresser and night stand. The pink rose wallpaper and crystal chandelier’s subtle lighting sets the mood for a romantic weekend in the country. The shared bath is just down the hall.
The rustic appeal of this bedroom is pure and simple adorned with beautiful antiques. This room has its own elegant private bath.
Dragonflies float about the room’s walls with a comfy double sized bed. The shared bath is conveniently located just down the hall. This room’s interior door leads into the Sunshine suite for guests in need of additional space.
This sunny yellow bedroom has a wonderful crystal chandelier over the bed with a luxurious private bath. An interior bedroom door opens to the Firefly bedroom to a spacious suite, additional charges apply.

Very pretty Victorian home, tastefully decorated. Spacious and welcoming living room. Comfortable beds; though full, it was never noisy. A generous breakfast but I would urge the owners to invest in a hot plate, to keep items warm.
Sigh.....trying to keep food warm is something I am forever worrying about. It would help to know what wasn't warm enough so I could figure out how to remedy the problem. I do use a warm water server to keep the eggs warm, but a hot plate may be the way to go for things like pancakes and bacon. There is a fine line between keeping something warm and burning, but thanks for the heads up. There's always room for improvement.

This was our first visit to upstate New York and we thoroughly enjoyed our week- end at the Hilltop. The home is beautifully restored and maintained. Sandy was a delightful hostess and we felt at home. Our Washington room comfortably accommodated three of us and the adjoining bathroom was huge and recently updated. It was amazingly quiet and peaceful even though all rooms were rented. The details were lovely including the softest comforter I have ever slept under! Although it is a long trek from Iowa, we hope to return.

I really enjoyed my stay here and will definitely return. Thank you for the lovely stay. Beds were comfortable. Room was quiet and very clean. My breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The inn is within walking distance to a few cafes. Very friendly and relaxing.

I stayed for the second year in a row in the "Sunshine Room" at the Hilltop House for a weekend get-away, and I enjoyed my experience as much as the first. The neighborhood is quiet (but for the sounds of birds that gently woke me up in the mornings), the house decor charming, and the breakfasts to die for! I also greatly appreciated the thoughtfulness of Sandy and her husband in providing tips of what to visit and eat in the area. Definitely plan on being back again!
