I stayed here on a recent trip to the area. The home is really beautiful and the location is convenient but peaceful. Fortunately, I really like cats, but if you are looking for a B&B in this area and don't like cats, don't stay here. They are everywhere and the first floor smells like cat litter (that really perfumy clean cat litter smell, not like cat poop). There are also some issues with bathroom ventillation and smells in general, so you shouldn't stay if you have sensitive sense of smell. However, our room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was very spacious and up-to-date for a house from this era, the breakfast was delicious, and we had a very pleasant stay.

We stayed at Buck's Homestead over Memorial Day weekend. We felt welcome and catered to throughout our entire stay. We were greeted with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a flower from the garden in our room. The Queen room was airy and spacious. The view overlooks the landscaped property and a wide open picturesque field across the street. Much thought went into making sure we had everything we needed. Coffee and tea, extra towels, bathrobes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, extra pillows and much more! The bed was so comfortable that we didn't want to leave. We spent time relaxing in the rocking chairs on the front porch and sitting in the gazebo. Breakfast in the morning was amazing! The table was decorated with red, white and blue fresh flowers for Memorial Day and our own bubbles. Fresh fruit, yogurt parfait, coffee, french toast, warm maple syrup and brown sugared bacon was out of this world! We sat on the screened in porch and took in the peacefulness of the beautiful gardens and yard. We are excited to return and spend more time enjoying all that the inn has to offer!

I grew up in Montgomery and staying at Buck's Homestead I felt like I stepped back in time without losing any of our modern amenities. The owner, Joan Buck Smith, grew up in this very home and I loved reading her family history. She is the consummate hostess and the FOOD is PHENOMENAL. She has thought of everything you could possibly want or need and is a treasure trove of information about the area. I give Buck's my highest recommendation.

Nice rooms, quaint decor, most comfortable bed I've ever slept in at a B&B, Joan does a wonderful job making you feel welcome and special. We recommend Buck's Homestead if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Need to know that the house cats (2) - soft, fluffy, and friendly - have the run of the home, so if you're allergic, bring your Allegra!

Growing up in Montgomery this is a must stay.If you want the feel of this small village.Upon picking up the phone to book your stay you feel the warmth of small town. Then upon arriving Joan greets you with that same warmth. If you need to relax and just let the day slide away you will be hard pressed to find another place like Buck's. The rooms are country the way it was when i was a kid.They are clean cozy and relaxing. Joan can give you a history lesson on the town if you want or you can just be left alone but the latter of the two is not the way it was.Joan will put on a breakfast that will leave you full for the better part of the day.All country cooking with homemade jams and breads,honey. I stay here every time I come home to bring back my childhood memories of times long ago but it is still alive here.A must stay rather it be a day or a week. George Bacon

Upon arrival we were greeted by Joan and given some fresh homemade chocolate cookies and offered a cold glass of iced tea. The room was very comfortable and clean and felt like you were home. Bathroom was clean with plenty of towels and extra toiletries. We even had bathrobes! Breakfast was outstanding each of the three days that we stayed. Joan is a terrific hostess and will direct you to local attractions. Would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. Thank You, Joan!

The bedrooms were very cozy, very clean and very comfortable. In addition there are 2 very clean bathrooms for the non-suite guests. These bathrooms are clean, were on the same floor as your bedroom and had a lot of amenities. Towels galore! Let me put it this way, if you forget to bring lotion, toothpaste or even a toothbrush...it's there. The owner and hostess of the place, Joan Smith, is such a sweet, thoughtful lady. We were presented with cookies upon arrival and were sent home with more cookies and banana bread upon check out. Breakfast was, of course, included with what you paid for and it wasn't something to sniff about either. She really knows how to entertain and seems to truly care about the guests (knowing that we were coming with kids, Joan even shopped for juice boxes and yogurt). The breakfast consisted of carved pineapples, homemade parfait, a delicious French toast and bacon. Of course the menu changes but all were delicious. Thanks, Joan!

We had a lovely stay at Buck's homestead in Orange County NY. We were in town to pick up our Son , the US Marine who had been in Japan over two years and we were really excited so we decided to arrive a day early and explore all the wonderful local attractions and there's a lot to do in the area. We wanted to try something different but we experienced better at the B&B, It felt like home. Extremely clean not even dust bunnies, not just beautifully decorated almost everything had a story or told the history about Orange County, outstanding / friendly service. I enjoyed the breakfast while listing to music , I enjoyed all the details of the meal and she considered our food restrictions very gracefully. We will return for a longer stay next time. Thank you, The Ockletrees
