The Bykenhulle House is where you want to stay, perfectly located in the Hudson Valley. The B&B is a 15 room, 6 bedroom Greek Revival Manor built in 1841 and located on 6 beautifully manicured acres in Southern Dutchess County. The knot and perennial gardens are adorned with carved shrubbery, quiet places to sit, and a fountain. Each guest room is unique in style and feeling with a private bathroom. The two formal living rooms are adorned with crystal chandeliers and fireplaces. A full breakfast is served in the dining room each morning before you are off exploring any of the many exciting Hudson Valley attractions from Rhinebeck/Hyde Park to Millbrook, Beacon or Cold Spring or Kent, CT. Easy access to and from the Taconic State Parkway.

First Bed and Breakfast stay

2.4 on August 11, 2014

This was my first stay at a B&B, as well as my husband, and what we found strange, was there were no keys to any of the rooms. It locked from the inside when we were in there, but we could not lock it when we left. That was a little unsettling for us, but maybe other B&B's do that too? The house is very beautiful and so are the grounds. There were only two other guests staying there while we were there, so it wasn't a busy time and breakfast was a bit quiet, but overall we had a fine experience and no major complaints.

Gorgeous bed and breakfast. Was the perfect place for our biking trip. Eight couples.We enjoyed our own wine and cheese in the gardens and delicious breakfast both days. Really enjoyed talking to Bill the owner- an interesting person.

Fourth of July stay

Two very nice nights. The breakfasts are superb. Also the owner and team are not only friendly, but very interesting people. Good spot that is out of the way but very close to the taconic parkway.

Nice Stay

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend celebration. The house and garden are beautiful. The owner is very charming and had lots of stories to tell. He was great company during breakfast.

Wonderful stay!

The rooms and grounds were beautiful. I was really impressed by the electric piano! Bill was a great host, the breakfast conversation was really interesting. My wife and I had a great time.

The grounds are incredibly beautiful located in a quiet quaint location making this a must stay so a vacation close to home. The owners are great interesting people with a rich local history. The room was immaculate and very quiet making for a wonderful weekend.

Wonderful hosts, Lovely rooms

Went with a friend here - she was coming from Boston and I was coming from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area. The Hudson Valley was about half way between us. We stayed in the Raspberry Suite - perfect for 2 friends that have not seen each other in a while - nice seating area with coffee table. We decided to have our first night in and asked for some plates, silverware and wine glasses - all were provided easily and left in our room before we got there (wine opener included). Also, in determining where to have dinner on other nights, the B&B has put together a very comprehensive list of restaurants that they happily emailed before our visit. Speaking of food, breakfast was a whole spread - eggs, bacon, pancakes, fresh fruit, orange juice, and coffee. Delicious! The owner is a talker and kept us entertained all through breakfast. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Bykenhulle was the perfect weekend getaway

This was a great location and a great suite. We got a tour of the grounds and a bit of the history of the house from the owner. He was a very pleasant and welcoming host with some great stories to share. We enjoyed our stay and the breakfast was great! Looking forward to our next trip and will definitely recommend this B&B to friends!
