The Stone House Bed & Breakfast at the Cornelis Kool House, Hurley NY, is an early 18th century Hudson Valley Dutch estate, with architectural features dating back to the original Dutch settlement of the New Netherland. It is possibly the oldest house in New York State that you can actually stay in, dating from circa 1700. We are nestled in the peaceful countryside of the Esopus valley, by the historic village of Hurley, a National Historic Landmark. We are perfectly situated to explore both sides of the Hudson River, the Shawangunks or the Catskills. Both the popular tourist destinations of Woodstock and Rhinebeck are just a short drive away.
Relax in our largest and most luxurious room. The queen sized four poster canopy bed has check silk drapery that echoes the simplicity of the original eighteenth century bed canopies. The down-filled pillows and duvet are covered with the highest quality Frette sheets. This spacious room also contains a magnificent mahogany New York armoire from circa 1840. The cozy sitting area has a sofa, a small desk and two large windows. 32" Flatscreen HD TV with Cable and DVD. The en-suite bathroom features the original stone knee-high wall, exposed beams and a glorious wide plank floo

This is a very interesting old house. Odd historical objects that were found in the house and in its walls are on display in a case. There is a very friendly cat on the grounds but he is not allowed in the guest area for allergy reasons. The bed was firm and comfortable, the linens crisp and clean, the floors and bathroom immaculate. The breakfast was delicious and rather fancy, and the young lady working there, Mariah, was lovely and very helpful. My only complaint is that it was a bit airless, as there were no screens in the windows and the AC in the window was not powerful enough to really get an air flow going. The temperature was perfectly cool and comfortable, but I would have liked more fresh air.

We had a great weekend at The Stone House B&B. We stayed in the Geographer Room. Comfy bed, nice updated bathroom with jetted tub. No TV and no cell phone reception. Breakfast was really lovely. They serve their homemade granola in addition to freshly baked bread and a main dish (one day was belgium waffles and the other day was herbed baked eggs). We would definitely go back.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a nice place to get away for a night not too far from NYC. This place hit the spot. It's quiet, the property has a nice view, the room was spotless (and the bed was incredibly comfortable), and the breakfast was delicious. Sam & Nadia couldn't have been nicer.

The house was so beautiful and vintage feeling and I loved the artwork all over the walls. The rooms were so clean and comfortable and the outside scenery was gorgeous even on a gloomy winter day. Coffee and tea was offered at all times, and the breakfast was overwhelmingly delicious. The home made granola and bread was fresh, and the main course (buttermilk pancakes with home made sausages) were to die for. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who appreciates the outdoors, as it is conveniently located by a few great state parks (which we took advantage off) we weren't rushed out of our room in the morning, and we were greatful that evening check it was so relaxed as we got there very late at night.

Every detail of my stay at Stone House was ideal. The highlight is the service and taste level of the owners. They are engaging, helpful and the breakfast was divine. The bed and linens were amongst the most comfortable of any I've experienced. My experience was so good that I booked another stay for next month.

The warmth of the room is only exceeded by the warmth of the owners, Sam and Nadia. Sam was great fun to chat with, and couldn't have been more accommodating to our need of a microwave for our picnic dinner. The bed room was immaculate, perfect for a cold winter night. My husband wanted to take the luscious bed and bedding home! The breakfast was dee-lish! Outstanding all around!

We had a wonderful stay. Sam was a graceous host. We were in town for my husbands mother's 89th birthday. It turned out that she and her family used to live in the house in the 1950's. We had no idea until after we booked our stay. We highly recommend if your looking for an authentic Stone House experience.
