About

The Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast is a multi-award winning member of the prestigious Select Registry and Diamond Collection groups of Inns. We are located in the heart of the Hudson Valley's Orange County – close to the USMA at West Point, the Storm King Arts Center, Brotherhood Winery (and many of the Shawangunk Wine Trail Wineries), and the Woodbury Premium Outlet Mall. Some of the Hudson Valley's most beautiful hiking/biking trails are within walking or easy driving distance. After returning from a full day of fun, guests can lounge in front of wood fire in the Parlor Room with a hot beverage, or sit on the front porch with a glass of wine while the Moodna Creek wanders its way toward the Hudson River across the street from the Inn. Built in 1802, this historic home is full of many original features original wood plank flooring, high ceilings and crown molding, a lovely wrap around porch, antiques and original paintings. Each guest room includes its own private full bath (in some instances a Jacuzzi tub for 2), King/Queen sized beds with luxurious bedding, wall-mounted large "Smart" TVs with DirecTV, Netflix/Hulu+/Internet access, individual room temperature controls, an iPad filled with information about local attractions and popular newspapers/magazines, and much more.

I had a wonderful weekend at Caldwell House with my husband and my parents. The house is beautiful and the rooms incredibly cosy. This was a nice relaxing escape from the city and we loved sitting out on the porch, reading, chatting and drinking wine. (Brotherwood Winery is very close and a must-visit!) Dena & John are such fantastic, welcoming hosts and the breakfast each day was so delicious. We also enjoyed dinner at the Irish pub at the back of the garden. I very much hope to return to this enchanting place!

Our organization had a couples retreat here. Dena has proven she knows how to execute to perfection for large groups; and even for groups like our small church. She has obviously taken customer feedback to heart; and has incorporated thoughtful elements that brings a quaint and comfortable feeling.....she has thought of virtually everything. My wife, who is very particular, absolutely loves the place! I will definitely keep this place in mind for corporate gatherings.
