Wonderful Stay!

4.6 on September 02, 2015

We enjoyed a very pleasant and relaxing long weekend at the Alexander Hamilton House. The Bridal Chamber was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We loved the whirlpool bath! We also took advantage of the swimming pool, which was clean and refreshing after a day of sightseeing. Tom is the perfect host, very personable and informative.......also an excellent cook! We spent most of our time in Sleepy Hollow, visiting Kykuit, Philipsburg Manor, Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and the Old Dutch Church. We also enjoyed seeing the New Croton Dam. Our favorite place to eat was Justin Thyme's. We will definitely visit again in cooler weather so we can make use of the wonderful fireplace!

Alexander Hamilton House was lovely B&B, easily found, sitting in beautiful neighborhood. Plenty of parking. Very comfortable bed. I was the only guest in mid-April, and Tom saw to it that I was greeted when I arrived. Nice selection of restaurants less than 3 minutes by car.

Amazing Stay Outside the City

What an amazing stay we had outside of the city for the weekend! My boyfriend took me away for the weekend and what a gem the Alexander Hamilton House was. Tom was the perfect host and was great with all around communication leading up to the stay and while we were there. The breakfast was very good and the house is situation in a very nice quiet neighborhood. I would strongly suggest staying here when in the Hudson Valley.

Great B&B in Croton-on-Hudson

Nice rooms - comfy bed, fireplace, spacious bath in Our Garden Room. Great breakfast - food and dining areas inviting and sunny. Host Tom was amiable and a great host. Croton-on-Hudson was hilly with views of the river at every twist in the road.

Friendly and Personal

After a glowing recommendation from a friend, I booked a Labor Day weekend here. Beautiful, historical home. Tom was a wonderful host, providing an excellent breakfast and friendly start to each day. Also, put together a beautiful bouquet and yummy chocolate dipped strawberries as a special request, and for a reasonable added charge. Thanks, Tom!

A Wonderful Getaway

We enjoyed our stay in this very friendly and relaxing place. We will definitely return again.

A very special charming guesthouse

4.2 on October 06, 2013

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed two separate rooms during this period. The Turret room is quite spacious and has a dedicated bathroom directly across the hall. When we booked I wasn't sure how well this aspect would suit us but it proved to be fine and not much different had te bathroom been attached to the room. We also had one night in the Garden room which has a bathroom attached. It is a bit smaller than the Turret, but more than adequate for our needs. Tom is the charming owner and cooks excellent breakfasts each morning. There is also the usual cereal and cold additions. Nothing was too much trouble for Tom and he was exceptionally helpful with any special requests, help in selecting some good local restaurants and so on. If we find ourselves back in NY in the future we would not hesitate to book back in here-it was a home away from home

Great rooms and food - but rushed out at the end

3.4 on September 18, 2013

The food was great, and the room was very nice. But on our last morning, we got rushed out by the host, and told we needed to be out the door NLT 11am. It was a somewhat surreal and rude experience. We weren't exactly straggling, but the host came into breakfast and I felt like he was tapping his watch and telling us we needed to be out by 11 and to get a move on.

Aalexander Hamilton House, great place to stay!
