Loved every second.

Every year, my boyfriend and I stay at a bed and breakfast in Saratoga Springs for our anniversary. Since they changed their stay and reservation policy, we decided to look elsewhere and fell upon this gem. It was much closer to home and had much more to do. We were able to get massages after we checked in and later in the evening ate at Henry's (which was absolutely AMAZING and worth every single dime spent). We stayed in the Winterberry room and soaked in the whirlpool tub after dinner. I'm already anticipating our anniversary next year as this one such a pleasant experience from check-in to check-out (and beyond). Wouldn't change one thing about it.


beautiful buttermilk!

My husband and I don't often stay at high end places or spas, but after wanting to go to Buttermilk Falls for years we finally made the trip. We had a wonderful relaxing time, and being 7 months pregnant it was exactly what I needed. Couldn't ask for more, thank you!


gift for mom

It was a very good experience. I've already recommended to several people and will visit again.Top notch and I said met my expectations because I had high expectations for this adventure and they delivered.


Wonderful Getaway

We spent a wonderful two nights at the Inn. The room was overly large, very comfortable. (Grand Laurel) The help was very helpful, the breakfasts scrumptious, and the location close enough to our home in Northern Westchester to make the trip easy and far enough to be an escape . The proximity to Hyde Park, Vassar and its museum, the CIA, and the short ride to Rhinebeck was an advantage. Henry's restaurant was very good, as was the Ships lantern, a few miles away. All in all, a great way to get away.


Great place to relax

Pros: The spa has a lovely pool, sauna and steam room. Tea & snacks were a nice touch. Breakfast was very good. Henry's restaurant is top class. Everything we asked for was provided (additional wood, suggestions for buying a Christmas tree etc) Room for improvement: The website advertises hot apple cider during Winter which was not provided. The floors could be cleaned better in the accommodation. I would also suggest oiling the door to the pool to stop the creaking.


Perfect getaway!

I took my wife to Buttermilk Falls for one night during the week for our wedding anniversary. From the time we checked in to the time we left, everyone at the inn, restaurant and spa were amazing. The food was outstanding from both the Inn and the Restaurant. The views could not be beat and I can't wait to go back!


Don't say we didn't warn you!

You're in for a treat! We have just booked our third stay at Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa in our favorite house and we look forward to it with great anticipation. Our first stay was a leap of faith, based on great reviews, and a desire to find a place that our family could spend 48 uninterrupted hours together; relaxing, being pampered and eating great food. We were overwhelmingly surprised and delighted with our stay. From our accommodations (perfect) to the spa (amazing) and of course to dining at Henry's (superb!) we could not have found a more blissful getaway. A stress free drive from Manhattan, everyone arrived easily, and happily! If that doesn't relieve some tension you can go straight to the barn and visit the animals which works at all ages! The animals provided endless entertainment. You can choose from guest rooms at the inn, cottages and beautiful homes, each more spectacular than the last. A bountiful breakfast menu, tea time in the afternoon and dinner in the evening kept us fueled for hiking, working out in the gym and several laps in the pool. Who could blame us for needing massages and a little extra time in the steam room? Our second stay was even more magical as the grounds were covered with just enough snow to make it a winter wonderland. The property is always picturesque but this year was breathtakingly beautiful. Buttermilk Falls Inn will always have a special place in our hearts. I know we will return every year. It fulfilled our every wish for a weekend for a successful together; tranquil, intimate setting just far enough away, a comfortable feeling and great attention to detail. We wanted for nothing. Everyone wants to return .. together ... and that says a lot!


Beautiful place, but perhaps a touch pricey?

Buttermilk Falls' stars are it's exteriors. The property, the animals, all wonderful Inside is great too, but just a hair off. Get a real wreath for your front door! You have a farm! I liked some of the artwork and furniture, while other pieces felt kind of yard sale. But the service was great -both the tea and the breakfast were delicious and Henry's put up a really nice meal.


Excellent to relax during a a long weekend

3.8 on December 01, 2014

The Buttermilk Falls Inn is a great place to rest during a couple of days, such as a long weekend. Excellent acommodations and food. The Henry's restaurant is a very good option for dining and enjoying without having to leave the property. If you are interested in the Spa, consider booking well in advance. We tried to book upon arrival, and there were not many options still available.
