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.

Excellent getaway

5 on August 23, 2015

My girlfriend and I stayed three nights in the trophy room. We were both impressed with both the rooms and services the whole time. Both John and Dena are very pleasant to talk to and give advice on nature walks, restaurants, and other things to do. We will definitely be going back.


Love the improvements to the Harmony Hill room

5 on August 21, 2015

This was our third time back and each time it gets better. We stayed in the Harmony Hill room (which is the room we stayed in the first time we came) and it was a great improvement. The room now features 2 very comfortable chairs which replaced a fancy love seat and chair. The new chairs are perfect for reading or just relaxing. This visit was our first time in the summer and the area is beautiful. We had been here in the snow, which was nice, but you can't beat the area when everything is in full bloom. Breakfast was outstanding, but that was no surprise. The hosts, John and Dena, really know how to make you feel at home. Thank you again for a great time.


Home again

4.4 on August 21, 2015

Loved this inn and owner. Warm, friendly, went above and beyond to accommodate us, including fedexing forgotten items to our next destination! Beautifully appointed, and meticulously clean, every comfort we seen to, and delivered. If visiting storm King,this is the place to stay.


Relaxing Stay at the Caldwell House

4.8 on August 11, 2015

My husband and I needed a relaxing getaway and we certainly found it at the Caldwell House. John and Dena and Megan made us feel immediately at home. Their wonderful, big-hearted spirit made everything at the Inn feel warm and welcoming. The delicious three course breakfasts were served on long tables so we got to sit with and get to know the other guests; by the end of our stay we felt like we’d made new friends. All requests were cheerfully handled, M & M’s were everywhere for the taking, and the whirlpool tub just seemed to melt our cares away. Who could ask for a better weekend getaway? Thank you John, Dena and Megan, for your special Irish warmth and hospitality.

Innkeeper Response
Well, thank you for such a warm review. You were very kind and you'll never know how much we appreciate it! You'll always have a special Irish welcome waiting for you here.


Anniversary Celebration

5 on July 20, 2015

Innkeeper Response
We really appreciate your taking the time to write such kind comments. We, too, hope to see you here again soon!


West Point Graduation

5 on May 25, 2015

Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast was a perfect place to stay for our very busy graduation weekend. Dena and John were wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. Dena organized a picnic lunch that was perfectly packed for transport and so delicious. I couldn't have done it without her. The home is beautiful, and the rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast is a happy place with a very comfortable feel to it. You walk in the door and exhale. Dena is a great cook too! We look forward to visiting again soon!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! West Point graduation is one of our absolute favorite weekend's of the year. It's a bit bittersweet, though. It is sad to see the Cadets move on and know we may not see their families as much as we had over the 4 years. You are always welcome back here. Please stay in touch!


Great B & B

5 on May 19, 2015

We like charming B & B's and yet enjoy modern conveniences. Also great breakfasts and charming hosts are appreciated as well. Caldwell House definitely rates. We stayed in the Cannemara House which is their newer addition. Very, very nice room with beautiful bathroom. We were there for a family wedding which filled up the place. We saw many of the rooms in the main house and they were very charming with wonderfully updated bathrooms. Dena could not have been more attentive and flexible besides also serving great breakfasts. We would strongly recommend this B & B!

Innkeeper Response
Your remarks are so kind! Thanks for all the nice comments and observations. We continue to work hard to make this the best possible experience a guest can have. All the best to you and we hope to see you soon.


outstanding stay at Caldwell house B&B

5 on May 08, 2015

We stayed in the storm king room and it was fabulous! Very cozy and quiet. Definitely recommend.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the recommendation! While we love all our rooms, we must admit to being a bit partial to the Storm King Room!


Wonderful for a private weekend away

4.8 on May 06, 2015

The Caldwell House is a beautifully restored home with 3 different buildings. We stayed in the main house which is a wonderful mix of old with modern amenities. John and Dena warmly greeted us when we arrived and made us feel instantly welcome. We relaxed and had local wine on the outdoor patio as well as on the deck off our bedroom. The homemade cookies and coffee were a nice energy boost in the late afternoon. Morning breakfast was delicious with good company and great service. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Caldwell House.

Innkeeper Response

Wonderful hospitality

4.8 on May 03, 2015

Planned our visit to celebrate our 38th anniversary, also planning to visit the Storm King Art Center. Caldwell House couldn't have been more convenient to match our plans, and they were very accommodating. Friendly hosts and guests and a well-appointed communal space made for a delightful and quiet stay. The hosts have a real talent for thinking through guest needs, and I was impressed with their attention to detail. Good, hearty breakfast, too, to fuel us through hours of walking.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We hope you will make this your annual Anniversary getaway! We really appreciate all your kind words and look forward to seeing you again!
