Great service and location. We stayed in the may or flat and it was cozy and romantic. Perfect spot for our honeymoon. Henry's food was amazing and reasonable in price. The spa is beautiful and the massages were fantastic. The pool was awesome with the stellar views. Loved the grounds and the stay all together. We will definitely come back.


Delightful retreat along the Hudson River

3.8 on May 30, 2015

We only had a one night stay; however, we very much enjoyed our short time at the Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa. We had a spectacular room above the check in area that was quite spacious and relaxing. The grounds with the small animal area, open areas, and falls, were tranquil. We enjoyed the informal tea and breakfast.


Yummy hidden gem so close to home!

It was our 20th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place, Greeted with a bottle of champagne and an incredible view was a hint of what was to be a superb experience. The spa treatments were divine, the facial (and I have had my share) transported me to another planet. My skin glowed. Henry's ,located right on grounds, had delicious treats for dinner and the wine was perfect. Forget the diet , there are too many homemade treats for the picking and you will not want to deny yourself.Indulge, enjoy this special treat. We will be back.


Great experience

Honeymoon

4.2 on May 08, 2015

We LOVED our stay! We went for two nights right after our Hudson Valley wedding. We staying in the Juniper room and the private deck was amazing! The spa- amazing and SO relaxing! The Henry restaurant had really GREAT food and the service was wonderful. Most of the staff were really kind and really helpful. The breakfast is so good! We ate really well. They have a 3:00-5:00 snack/tea time and that was super tasty too! The only reason I check 4 stars and not 5 for the cleanliness is because of the gym. The fitness area is really old and kind of gross. The equipment is all rusty and the ceiling is yellow and nasty. I enjoy a daily workout and looked forward to keeping up my fitness while on vacation but I didn't enjoy their "fitness area". I don't think it gets cleaned and it is not a place you will want to go to workout.


Surprising delightful

My wife and I enjoyed our brief stay. In my way of thinking the best compliment you can give an establishment like this is repeat business. We will return. They do need to clean up a few things: Dust off the gym and make the website more informative. Other than that it is a great hide-away and the grounds are scenic and tranquil.
