The noted actor Rex Harrison lived here in the 1950’s. A large garden, with a POOL and Poolhouse, are sheltered by an overhanging cliff that overlooking the river.

At Peace at the RiverView

Super Cozy, Inviting Room

4.0 on November 08, 2013

I spent one night in the Firehouse Suite, and it was absolutely perfect. I was in the area for business, and decided to find a B&B, rather than a standard hotel. After a night in the Firehouse Suite, I'm really, really happy with my choice. The space was so inviting... kind of hard to describe in words... you just felt it when you walked in the room. From the gas fireplace in the sitting area to the super cozy and comfortable bed to the sound of the creek outside... the stay exceeded my expectations. Some of my favorites: incredibly soft sheets, the gas fireplace, privacy of the suite, the sound of the creek, the proximity to town, a fabulous mattress, the choice of organic/fresh breakfast products in the fridge, the mix of antique and modern decor, super soft towels, tea and honey in the cabinet, robes in the closet and the chaise built for two

Absolutely Fabulous

We had such a wonderful stay last weekend. We stayed in the cottage which is a great value if you want to bring your own food you have a kitchen. Carolla is a gem. She is wordly & warm, a delight as soon as she greets you she makes you feel so welcome. The inn is just lovely & besta is a sweetheart. We were able to meet some of Carollas friends & we felt so at home. We ate lunch at the Art cafe good food & you can eat outside. At Carolla"s suggestion we also tried a lunch at Freelance restaurant also delicious. Overall a great weekend we highly recommend a stay here. Marla & Mario Macaluso.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

A Beautiful Getaway

4.6 on October 07, 2012

My husband and I wanted a short, close vacation for our anniversay. Since we both like the outdoors and the Hudson River has many great places to bike or hike we chose RiverView Bed and Breakfast. We were totally surprised and pleased with everything about it.!! Carolla was the best Hostess, very dedicated to making our stay comfortable. She saved our vacation by letting us use her bikes, since the rental store was closed, and went out of her way to make sure they were in working condition. The house itself is beautiful as well as the grounds, and view of the Hudson River. We will be back. Great Donuts too Carolla! Mary and Frank Karlavige

Tranquility & Luxury

5 on September 21, 2012

We have stayed at both of Carolla's properties on a few occasions, and each visit has been a wonderful and relaxing experience! For starters, Carolla is a pleasure to know and to stay with. She is a warm, gracious, and lovely woman who will instantly make you feel welcome and at home. Chats with Carolla are always fun since she is such an interesting and engaging person! Whether you stay at the Riverview or the Firehouse, you will not be disappointed. The attention to detail is everywhere at both properties. The rooms are spotless and contain everything you need for a weekend's stay. The bed linens are luxurious and the beds themselves very comfy! Carolla's exquisite taste is evident in all of the rooms she has decorated and furnished. Even the outdoor areas have many of her special and thoughtful touches all about the property. She definitely has a way of creating a serene and magical surroundings! We love staying at either of her places, at any time of the year.

What an amazing home

5 on July 09, 2012

I had no expectations other than to get away and relax but came away with so much more. Where do I begin -Carolla is a gracious host that immediately made me feel at home as if I were staying with family (the kind you like) . The inn was beautiful, serene, peaceful and so comfortable ( yes clean too) Rooms were comfortable and accommodating. Carolla made excellent breakfast served on the veranda. I also was fortunate to take her yoga class which I really enjoyed. Despite not having taking yoga in some time she waked r thru each movement and explained each move. The pool was a nice way to unwind or lay on the hammock and nap as I did. I came back feeling so refreshed and relaxed. I can't wait to book my next visit. Truly exceptional!!!

Firehouse luxury

5 on February 11, 2011

My wife and I spent over a week in the upstairs apartment of the Fire House in August of 2010. My colleague from South Africa was staying downstarirs. We were working at the Lamont-Dougherty Laboratory. I travel a lot, work and lot and bring my wife along. This is the nicest place I have stayed on any continent. The setting is cozy beyond belief. The area is beautiful and Piermont is charming. The apartment was perfect for us, clean, well kept and well-appointed. If we needed something, we asked and we got it from our charminng proprietor. New York is close by bus. We found the towns along the eastern bank of Hudson to be charming and fun to visit. Everything was perfect.

A magical getaway

What a magical place! Carolla creates an environment of comfort and beauty on her lovely property which is unsurpassed in my b and b experience. Her breakfasts are delicious, consciencious, and generous and are served with glorious views of the Hudson River. Immaculately presented with great attention to detail. Thank you! We'll be back!
