Amazing place and amazing time

4.6 on July 29, 2014

Buttermilk exceeded our expectations on all counts. We loved the room, the property, the friendly service, the amazing afternoon tea, Henry's (for lunch), and the spa. Can't think of anything that wasn't great. It's not cheap but worth it.

Restaurant closed Mon-Tue. Over 16's only in pool.

Really loved this place and will definitely be back, but felt our stay was compromised because of the restaurant being closed Mon-Tue and the pool area not available to our children.

An amazing escape only a short drive from home. not cheap, but worth the expense.... gorgeous ground, inviting staff, large and clean rooms and delicious food. We highly recommend this to couples (especially those that might need a night or two of pampering away from the kids) :)

Great Weekend Escape

My fiancee and I had a relaxing and reinvigorating weekend stay at Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The grounds are immaculate with short hiking trails to take in some nice views. The rooms are cozy and welcoming. Make a dinner reservation for Henry's on the Farm - it's a great place.

Tucked away farm and spa

Stayed in both the Juniper and Grand Laurel rooms. Both were fantastic, especially the Grand Laurel. Loved exploring the grounds. A delicious breakfast is included every morning. Ate at Henry's on the property one night for dinner - also delicious. Would definitely go back!

Relaxing and lovely weekend getaway

4.2 on July 05, 2014

We enjoyed two nights here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The grounds were very pretty and we loved the breakfast and afternoon tea - great food. Our room was nice though it was a bit warm (you can't control the temperature yourself) and the bed/sheets/pillows could have been more comfortable. It was a bit pricey for the room we got - but I understand it was peak season on a weekend, and included all the great service and food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were disappointed that on both days they were doing some minor construction (mainly banging on rocks to fix a pathway for an upcoming wedding, but it was disruptive to the peaceful atmosphere as it occurred both times during afternoon tea and during breakfast). after it went on for the second day, I talked to the staff at breakfast and was told it would stop for the day. But then it started again in the afternoon, which was frustrating given what the manager had communicated earlier, so once again I talked to the staff. They were kind enough to give us a discount and explained why it had to go on - so that was a nice gesture and made us feel better. Going forward though, I would not think it's wise to have someone making a lot of noise in a fairly pricey B&B on a busy summer weekend, where people go to relax. Thankfully we found some great chairs overlooking the hudson away from the noise and it was very peaceful. Overall a nice stay - we also enjoyed the restaurant and the spa very much.

Best bed and breakfast in dutchess county

This place is not only beautiful, but the service is also outstanding!!! The spa is great, and so is the restaurant... Breakfast spread is to die for!!! My favorite place... Really, no complaints, so we just keep coming back....

You don't want to miss this lovely get away cottage type setting!

Buttermilk Falls in proved to be everything my husband and I were looking for from the minute we arrived. The place is so quaint, and the cleanliness and helpful staff were just fabulous...but you don't want to miss the breakfast in the morning and the afternoon tea. The cook to order breakfast included with your stay does make the complete package price worth it, and they do a terrific job with the snacks make available at the afternoon tea. The dinner that we enjoyed at Henry's far exceeded the dinner we had that follow Saturday at a local restaurant. Buttermilk Falls has an excellent cooking staff, housekeeping service and front desk employees. I would recommend this place to anyone! Believe me, you will be glad you came.

Perfect place for rest and renewal

The staff was friendly, helpful, really went out of their way. The room was just delightful and the grounds worth exploring. I enjoyed the farm animals--especially the white peacock! Perfect place for restoring equilibrium. HENRY'S the resident restaurant is superb.
