....to Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa! Our overnight stay was much too short. We needed more time to explore our beautiful surroundings and make friends with the wonderful animals. Breakfast was sublime and dinner at Henry's compared favorably with fine restaurants in NYC and Fairfield County, CT. We're planning a longer stay for next summer and recommending it heartily to family and friends.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Buttermilk Falls Inn. We had chosen the North Cottage, which overlooks the Hudson and is exceptionally comfortable and cozy. The entire property is pastoral and easy to walk. What a treat to saunter down a country byway for breakfast, high tea or dinner at Henry's. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. The spa adds another great level of service and relaxation. Your close proximity to NYC is an added bonus. If I was a Manhattanite, I'd be visiting Buttermilk regularly! Thank you for a refreshing retreat in the Hudson Valley

A bed and breakfast in the Hudson Valley with llamas? Check. A gourmet restaurant with good farm to table food? Check. Beautiful rooms with gas fireplaces? You get the idea. A wonderful place at any time of year.

I am so glad I stumbled upon Butermilk Falls when looking for somewhere to stay in upstate NY during our "fall foliage" trip. The property is so serene, lush, well maintained, and clean. We stayed in the Gindelle suite, which was more of an apartment than a suite. We were not expecting it to be so spacious! It was decorated just right, with a fantastic view of the pond with swans, ducks, and geese. Our kids loved having their own special "hideaway", and we enjoyed the 2 fireplaces, among so many great features. I can't forget to mention the barn with the miniature donkeys, llamas, goats, chickens -- ALL of the animals so well taken care of!!! The food at Henry's was delicious and served quickly. I truly do not have anything negative to say about our stay...we can't wait to return!

We stayed in Cottage Rose...Very nice room. change the bulb in the fixture over the bed to something less bright and add another lamp on the table by the window... The room lacked any ambiance at night with that annoying light on..yet we were in the dark without it.... so another lamp in the room beside the one on the night table is in order. Drinks at the bar were good. The food at Henry's was ok. Breakfast was good variety...might be nice just to be able to get eggs any style. Pancakes not very good..heavy and under cooked. The inn was not that busy. The staff were very nice and friendly but guests not engaging... I would hate to see what the parking is like when the inn is full. had to park down by the spa one night...... otherwise enjoyed our stay...very quiet...

The rooms are exactly as they appear on the website, cozy and reminiscent of the original setting. The restaurant is great and the grounds are about as peaceful, serene, and pristine as you can get. What a wonderful experience!

Buttermilk Falls is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The inn is set on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the Hudson with plenty of beautiful scenery and walkways to enjoy. Whether you want to be active or just sit quietly and read a book, it's the perfect place to be. Some of the rooms in the main house are on the small side (it is a B&B after all!) but there are also plenty of options if you want more room. We stayed in the Gindalle flat which was both cozy and spacious overlooking the pond. The spa is a quiet haven. The breakfasts in the main house change daily and are always delicious with many options both healthy and decadent. Finally, Henry's at the Farm, the restaurant on site is a gem. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual with top notch farm to table food. All in all, the perfect place to escape hectic NYC life!

My husband and I decided to take a mid-week getaway to the Hudson Valley and booked an overnight stay in the Juniper room. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The grounds were spacious and picturesque. Our dinner and breakfast at the Inn were also quite good. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

Great breakfast and midday tea. Beautiful grounds, upscale spa and pool, and lovely staff. Loved the llamas. Only complaint is that I had no control over climate control in my room.
