WhistleWood Farm is set on a hilltop in Rhinebeck, an historic town in New York's Hudson River Valley. We offer you a private country retreat from the bustle of your everyday life, only two hours north of Manhattan.
Animals grazing in the sun, and wildflower gardens in bloom make the perfect setting for solitude or lively conversation. Pull up a chair on the deck or a private patio to enjoy the views, or explore the woods on the walking trails that wind through the property (find the pond!). The Rhinebeck Tennis Club is right next door, and so is the Center for the Performing Arts. If golf is your pleasure, the Red Hook Golf Club is nearby. You can also do what most of our guests enjoy most - just relax!
The Lodge features a fieldstone surround for a crackling fire, spacious rooms with antique furnishings, beamed ceilings, handmade quilts, oriental rugs and colorful Pendelton blankets. Acorn rockers sit on the sunny front porch. Maggie's eclectic taste and her many collections welcome you and make you feel at home. Come enjoy our warm hospitality in a relaxed, light-hearted atmosphere!
