Located in between Albany and Windham, your options of what to do with your time is endless. Then come back and curl up next to our fireplace or relax on the front porch facing the mountains!!

This is such a gem of a room....we nicknamed it the Gold room during renovation since we all loved the beautiful vintage gold wallpaper I put up....the room is now named after my great-grandparents...the look reminded me of their taste in decor.

This King sized suite was created out of the original summer kitchen, which was the first building erected. The building has all it's original beams and square nails still exposed but we did add some insulation and warm floors. This beautiful suite has it's own covered porch and is feet away from the outdoor hot tub....Having 2 different entrances, it is also handicapped accessible. By fall, there will be a fireplace as well in the room!
Gabe's room is special to us for a number of reasons. It is part of a renovation of the original structure made in about 1860. A narrow private staircase leads up to this wonderful room. The shower is contained within the room, and the private bathroom is just off the room itself. Unique touches abound in the room, including a fireplace mantle that serves as headboard for the queen-size bed, a spacious double closet &amp;amp; wide plank floors. The room opens via a hallway door &amp;amp; can adjoin to the Helen &amp;amp; Percy Suite to serve as a family suite (additional pricing applies)
Beautifully restored circa 1920's cottage. Includes a large master bedroom with cathedral ceiling. Full cedar closet 7 opens to a large front porch. Also a full size bedroom,full kitchen, laundry & living/eating area. Breakfast/housekeeping NOT included, available at additional cost.

The inn was positively charming. The owners went above and beyond our needs. We frequently stay at B&Bs but this far exceeded any we have been at.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Van Winkle Inn. The innkeepers were so much fun and really took great care of us. Food was great. Great location. We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks so much for staying with us! It is just great when we have guests that have such kind words to share. It reminds us why it is that we decided to open our Inn.

Beds are very comfortable, Inn is beautiful and comfortable, hosts are welcoming and helpful with accomodating personal needs. I would only suggest uploading pictures of all the suites/rooms online - though they were all very nice.

This little B&B was a little further from Windham Mountain than I hoped. If if were a little closer I would stay there every time. The rooms, staff and atmosphere could not have been nicer. I am a very picky traveler and typically stay at high end hotels. This little B&B was the complete opposite and completely perfect! We has the Inn to ourselves and the owners gave us a second room instead of providing a roll away bed for my son. We were able to keep our doors open and have the room across the hall. It was like having a suite. The Inn keepers were wonderful at accommodating our gluten free diet. They even took my son on a little adventure through the secret passage ways. I could not have asked for more. An absolute gem!

Our stay at the VanWinkle Inn was wonderful! We stayed in the Lillian suite, which is a separate, private, large room off the main house, with a king bed and a private porch. It was beautifully appointed and clean. The place is out of the way and quiet, exactly what us frazzled people needed. The grounds are pretty, and patrolled by a friendly cat. TV and internet, for those who need it. There is good coffee available in the main house 24/7, so those of us like me, who tend to wake up around 6 and go prowling for caffeine, are able to get our initial fix without driving around looking for 7-11's. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful, cooked and served by the hosts in the dining room of the main house. The hosts are friendly and personable, without being intrusive. Hudson and Albany are both within easy driving distance, as well as many regional attractions. We visited with some friends in Troy one day, and Olana the other, and had good dinners at the local restaurants. All in all, a fantastic, relaxing, and rejuvenating place for those who wish to get away to a pretty and quiet place for a weekend. We will be back...
