WOW wow and more wow - this creative oasis will take you far beyond its grand location with beautiful Hudson river views and Bear Mountain 3 minutes down the road! It was such a pleasure to stay in the "Serengeti Room" - we felt like we had traveled much further than our 1-hour drive from NYC! The interior design detailing is impeccable throughout the house - we just wanted to soak in every room! This place is more like a palace - they have truly thought of everything. It is spotless, so comfortable and the hospitality could not have been finer - our hosts were friendly and warm and genuine. We cannot wait to return in Spring and I trust will keep returning for a long time to come. - Alison, NYC

Overlooking the Hudson River, the views are priceless! As shown in the photos on the website, this home is spectacular. Innkeeper Robert's commendable hospitality and breakfasts are incomparable. We already have our next visit planned and booked.

We were visiting the Hudson River Valley while on our way a 50th wedding anniversary of friends who live in the area. We decided to visit The US Military Academy at West Point, the FDR Museum and homestead, and the Culinary Institure of America...all within an hour or so of each other. Our first stop was overnight in Ft. Montgomery, NY within a few minutes of West Point. We stayed at la bel Worstell Bed & Breakfast, a magnificent facility hosted by Mr. Robert M. Bryant, the innkeeper. Each room had a theme based on the places that Mr. Bryant had visited in the past. The inn itself has just about any amenity that one could ask for including a movie room, workout area, and even an "infinity" bathtub. Our host was pleasant and congenial making sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Our breakfast the next morning was superb and Mr. Bryant was with us throughout. When visiting this area of the Hudson Valley, I would highly recommend la bel Worstell for your stay.

Just getting around to taking a few minutes from my stay with my girlfriend turned fiance Oct 5th. Needless to say yes, I proposed while there in our suite before taking a soak in the overflow tub. Bob and his wife were simply amazing with every detail that they attended to. The grounds are beautiful to explore and can't wait to go back in the summer when we can enjoy the outdoor pool! Definitely will be gonig back to celebrate after we are married!
