How we lucked out in finding Joan and Buck's Homestead. Superb in every way. Thank you, Joan.

Just What We Needed

4.6 on October 24, 2015

We just returned from a two night stay at Buck's Homestead B&B. The few days leading up to our stay and the day prior to our arrival had been especially difficult due to the loss of one of our cherished cats. From the moment we arrived at Buck's Homestead, we felt welcomed and relaxed. Our room was comfortable and lovely with beautiful period furnishings. Very spacious bathroom in the Queen En-suite Room. The entire house was charming and warm. Joan had chocolate chip cookies to welcome us and delicious breakfasts each morning. She was also so helpful in recommending places to eat and to visit in the area. Her home is situated on a lovely country road and, of course, the fall foliage was just gorgeous! We met two other lovely couples at breakfast each morning which was an added bonus! And not to be forgotten, little Chippie put a smile on our faces each day. Meow! Thank you Joan for a lovely stay and for your warm hospitality. Ellen & Marc

Great B&B

Joan runs a fantastic little B&N in Montgomery. The room was very nice and comfortable. The food - well it was just wonderful. We stayed 3 nights and had just amazing meals. The eggs benedict was to die for. Joan also had some great tips for activities. We never would have seen the outdoor art at Storm King if she hadn't recommended it. The property is off the main road but close to the village center and close to sites to visit. Just a beautiful county home. Thank you so much for delightful time. Joe and Lori P. Denver CO.

Most pleasant stay

Joan has reestablished her childhood home into a wonderful B&B with amenities from the earliest part of the families history to the present. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. And the breakfasts were awesome!

A Great Get Away

4.8 on November 09, 2014

My boy friend and I like to get away for long weekends and drive somewhere not too far from the city. Our stay at the Buck's Homestead Bed & Breakfast worked out perfectly for one such get away. We spent two nights at Joan's warm and cozy home which meant we got to have two of her delicious and hearty country breakfasts. We were also lucky to have been the only guests those two nights so we enjoyed complete privacy moving about our bedroom, the sitting room and our private bathroom. The welcome we received from Joan was warm yet unobtrusive. It started with packages of chocolates and homemade cookies and ended with her own little booklet of her favorite breakfast recipes. And in between, there were bottles of water in the refrigerator and a Keurig machine with a supply of single-cup coffees and teas. Everything was clean, the queen-sized bed was comfortable, and there was a full supply of basic amenities, even dental floss and toothpaste. We would go back to Buck's Homestead if we happened to be in the neighborhood again.

Perfect Get Away!

Thank you Joan for an awesome stay at your home. We had a most delightful stay in your charming Bed and Breakfast. My girlfriend and I typically go away in the fall for a "Girls Get Away" from all our kids and husbands. This was the terrific spot for us to start our adventures in the Hudson Valley. We thoroughly enjoyed your warm welcome, comfy accommodations and fabulously delicious breakfasts. The little town of Montgomery was adorable and your tip to head down to Cold Spring for antiquing and lunch was perfect too. Thanks again for a marvelous stay.

Great stay at Buck's Homestead

5 on September 20, 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our far too short stay (one night) at Buck's Homestead. This is a beautiful farmhousethat is filled with memorabilia of its former dairy days. The room was great and Joan has thought of all the amenities you might have forgotten and need in the bathroom like toothbrushes, health and shower products etc. Our room looked out on a field of sweet corn with the workers bringing in the harvest. Breakfast was hearty and delicious in a relaxed atmosphere with the satellite radio playing Josh Grobin. We will be back.

Don't stay here if you don't LOVE cats

4.0 on August 22, 2014

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.

Perfect Memorial Day Getaway

4.6 on May 31, 2014

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!
