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.

Much needed getaway

5 on December 09, 2014

I booked this weekend after a tough couple months of running crazy with my mother in law being sick and eventually passing. I cannot express enough thanks to Dena and John for making it such a great weekend. From the moment we arrived we felt like royalty. The Inn is beautiful and the company was grand. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful and as innkeepers they truly do think of everything to make your stay comfortable. Thanks so much for a great weekend Gina and Art

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy we were able to help put some enjoyment back in your lives after a rough month. You were a pleasure to host and we hope to see you back here again soon,


Gorgeous B&B

5 on November 10, 2014

We stayed in the Harmony Hill room-Wow! You'll never want to go home again- Gorgeous bedroom, double sided fireplace, whirlpool tub- It was like paradise. Rustic yet modern technology. I stayed the night before my wedding, then the night of my wedding with my husband. It was a wonderful experience. The staff treated us like family. They were lovely and decorated our room in rose petals and had lit candles when we returned to our room the night of our wedding. There were home maid pies waiting for us in the evening and then come morning the breakfast was amazing. - The perfect place to stay!

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your Wedding weekend stay with us! Nothing makes us happier than to play our small part in a Couple's special day. We wish you a long, long life of happiness, joy, and good health. We hope to see you back soon!


Wonderful Hidden Gem!

5 on November 01, 2014

My husband and I live local to Caldwell House and booked the Storm King room for two nights in October 2014: the night before and the night of our wedding. I should start by saying that pictures do NOT do this beautiful inn justice! The preservation of the original architectural detail was amazing, and the new construction blended almost seamlessly. Our room was STUNNING! Spacious, clean, and very homey with all of the amenities! The welcoming "pie on the pillow" was also a very nice touch. John and Dena Finneran were two of the most pleasant people I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. As some of you can relate, the day before and the day of a wedding are EXTREMELY hectic times! They were so understanding and accommodating--John even took some pictures of the bridal party! It is abundantly clear that John and Dena Finneran are truly passionate about what they do--and that is what puts Caldwell House B&B leaps and bounds above the competition. My husband and I can't wait to come back!

Innkeeper Response
You are so kind! It is guests like you who make it so much fun to do what we do. We enjoyed hosting you and are glad we were able to help make your Wedding day special for you. Please do come and see us again soon! All the best to the two of you,


Wonderful Treasure

A peaceful and charming getaway at the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast. Lovely rooms, and great amenities. John and Dena are so welcoming and kind and they thought of everything. We stayed in the Carriage House, which was beautiful. Thank you for all you do to make staying at the Caldwell House such a pleasant experience.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for helping to make our "job" a true labor of love. It is special guest like you that make this so much fun for us! Hope to see you soon,


Slice o' Heaven!

5 on October 21, 2014

I've been to the Caldwell House twice in the past 2 months because it's that AMAZING and have sent a number of friends who are equally excited to stay. Not only is it cozy, cush and charming, the owners and staff cater to special diets with a smile! Chef Dena says "pies on the pillow" for her nightly treats, I say, "slice o' heaven" for the entire stay.


The best B&B we have ever stayed at!

5 on October 15, 2014

We felt like we were staying with good friends in a five star hotel. Dena and John are the most hospitable hosts and the facility is truly a blend between the charm of an antique home with all of the conveniences of modern life. The big screen TV's, internet, and queen size beds fit in beautifully with the charm of the rooms and the large claw bathtub. A perfect day ends with a perfect piece of pie baked by our hostess, Dena. We could not improve upon one aspect at our stay and we will surely return! Thank you for a truly memorable weekend, Terry & Ric

Innkeeper Response
This is so kind of you! We enjoyed your stay with us as much or more than you did! You were so much fun to be around. Please come see us again real soon!


Most Outstanding B&B

5 on October 15, 2014

We arrived three days early for our 45th West Point Reunion in order to stay at the Caldwell House, see the Fall colors and tour the Hyde Park area. Our reunion at West Point was wonderful, but our stay the Caldwell House was actually the highlight. Our room was exceptional in every way - spacious, romantic...perfect. The fireplace between the bedroom and bath was gorgeous. The breakfasts were gourmet, five star, homemade creations by Dena. John designed a beautiful daily menu every morning for the guests, which included Irish blessing, weather for the day, and list of items the occurred in history on that day. Everything about Caldwell House is outstanding and special. The beautiful grounds are a lovely place to stroll around, sit under a canopy of massive trees, or just sit in one of the many gardens, or on a cozy love seat on the wrap-around porch. The evening "pie on your pillow" was another unexpected added touch of gracious hospitality. The availability of snacks, cookies, fruit, yogurt, tea and coffee at any time during the day made for even more amenities. We toured the Roosevelt Manson and Library, Val-Kill, Storm Mountain Outdoor Art Center and the Vanderbilt Mansion, all recommendations by John, who gave us great maps and directions. John and Dena are lovely, helpful, but not imposing, magnanimous hosts. What a wonderful, unforgettable stay we had!

Innkeeper Response
Wow! Where do we start? I guess thank you, thank you, thank you would be a good place! We so enjoyed having you stay with us and our breakfast conversations were enjoyable and memorable. We are so pleased that your stay with us was everything you had hoped for. Please, come see us again soon!


Wonderful stay worth the money

4.8 on October 10, 2014

Whether it's Dena's delicious breakfast or an individual pie (with beautiful smile) she personally delivers to your room after dinner or John's stimulating conversation and knowledge about the area at breakfast, you are going to love your stay at the Caldwell House. Visit Hyde Park, West Point, and other local attractions but at night, you'll return to this wonderfully homey and comfortable inn with two terrific innkeepers. Well done, Dena and John


Will definitely return

Love this beautiful house and the warmth of the owners. Great experience- very sad that we only stayed one night! Thanks again so much

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much. We sure do hope to see you here again real soon!


Wonderful

We had a really nice stay at the Caldwell House. The service was professional yet personal, and it was all good. We rented bikes and went on a day trip, to Storm King sculpture park. Hope to come back next time we´re in the states. //t+e
