I have lost count as to how many times we have stayed here, including bring friends.it is unique with its quirkiness, warmth and wonderful hospitality. The rooms take you back in time and you cannot help but be totally relaxed in the environment. The breakfast is always outstanding and the combination of the wonderful Vera and the one of a kind Dave, are the icing on the cake.
My wife and another couple found this B&B to be superb. I personally enjoyed the rooms, hospitality, view of the Hudson, and proximity to reunion activities. I would recommend this to anyone, and will stay there again on my next visit.
An extremely comfortable and superbly appointed establishment in the heart of a delightful little town with nice restaurants, interesting as well as useful shops and just up the hill from the station and Hudson River. Also a very easy and scenic drive along the Pallisades Parkway. A really great escape from the City just one hour away. We loved the comfortable sitting room with 24hr tea and coffee and homemade cookies and cakes and the breakfasts were very special. Probably the nicest place of its kind in our experience.
Stayed at the Pig Hill Inn for two nights. Room was pleasantly large, bathroom was clean and shower pressure was great. Did not hear any noise even though we were on the first floor. Breakfast was a highlight, Paulette was fantastic and the food was delicious and filling. Location was great, an easy walk to the Metro North station. We took the train into the city and returned at around midnight or so and felt completely safe.Would definitely return.
We stayed in the Canterbury room. It's a beautifully decorated red room w/ canopy bed. Wonderful linens, tasty breakfast artistically plated. Owner was very nice, knowledgable & accommodating. Saw an unbelievably beautiful sunset from the back patio area. The bath for this room is two steps down (exactly as described on the website) & could be problematic for older guests.
Bykenhulle House was the best B & B that we stayed at during our tour of New York state. Pleasant room and friendly and interesting owners who seem to enjoy spending time with their guests. We also very much enjoyed the grounds of the house which are extensive. Good value for the money.
The Bykenhulle House was charming and lovely. Neat and clean. The breakfast was very good and the homemade cookies on the table near the stairs are a nice treat. Our room was quiet. We enjoyed our walk around the grounds and just hanging in our room. They encourage you to enjoy the living rooms and read, a great place to unplug. In each room is places to visit and restaurant recommendations. We were unaware of all the history in the area and wished we had more time to stay. We came and went as if we were visiting family/friends. The inn keeper and house manager made us feel very welcome and definitely a place we would visit again.
The Pig Hill Inn is great! Well located for visits to West Point, Boscobel, New Palz and Stony Point Revolutionary Battlefield. The town of Cold Spring is a great base with good restaurants and a wonderful view of the waterfront with views across the river at the base of the street. Breakfasts were the best we had on our trip! Yummy omelettes, melt in your mouth French toast and blueberry pancakes to die for! The crispy bacon is cooked in the oven. Yum! The room was on the back of the house so quiet and nice with trees all around. #5. Shower only but we just take showers. The inn is an old house so each room is different. The website is accurate on appearance of each. You choose your breakfast time the night before so there are two rooms per half hour, to give good service and make sure your breakfast is perfect.
I stayed for two nights at the Pig Hill Inn, in a new room each night and I found each room to have unique and special details that enhanced the charming bed and breakfast. The breakfasts were delicious and varied each morning. The location is spectacular and the views onto Main Street make you feel incorporated into the town of Cold Spring, NY.
I was giving myself a birthday treat, and treat it was! The room was beautiful and well-kept and everyone I met -- from David to the young women in the breakfast room -- was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast, by the way, was great, with especially good coffee! I very highly recommend the Pig Hill Inn.
I have nothing but good things to say about the Pig Hill Inn. I stayed in the Mountain Vista on a Monday night to be closer to some work I needed to do nearby the next morning. When I arrived, the inn keeper, Dave, greeted me like an old friend and helped me carry my things up to the room. He then called a pub up the street to make sure the kitchen was still serving food because I was hungry after a long drive. The room was clean and nicely decorated, the temperature was perfect, and it had a historic feel (but yet not overdone). Best of all, the inn is located right on main street, but yet I could see the mountains from my window. The homemade breakfast in the morning (and Very, the owner) were both lovely, and I am already trying to plan my next stay with my husband!
My fiance and I just got back from a 2 night stay at la bel to celebrate our engagement. We found it through a random google search and didn't know what to expect since this was our first time staying at a B&B. It had a homey feel - Karen and Edward are so warm and welcoming. We stayed in Serengetti and would recommend it to anyone. The decor of the house is incredible. We were obsessed with the game room, played lots of card, ping pong, swam, sauna. It's so close to Bear Mountain and we did a hike there too. AND THE FOOD.... their cooking was incredible. They catered to all sorts of different restrictions for guests, vegan, gluten free, egg allergy, etc, which was great for me since i'm a pescatarian. We couldn't have imagined a better stay and will for sure be going back!
I loved the Pig Hill Inn. The room was very nice. I especially love the canopy bed. Our stay was very relaxing and breakfast at the Inn was sensational! And the pecan pie left on the counter for the guests to enjoy was amazing. I only wish there was someone in the house at night in case we wanted a drink by the bar. Other than that, I could not complain! It was just what I needed.
The Pig Hill Inn exceeded my expectations in all regards, especially the delicious breakfasts and the willingness of the staff to accommodate a special request. Vera is an excellent host and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome.
We have been staying at the Pig Hill Inn for years. There are certainly more up-to-date places, but its location, relaxed atmosphere, and general "vibe" are what bring us back. The breakfast is quite good, and an excellent late afternoon treat appears daily. The owners have been very helpful with our occasional requests. We do wish that coffee were readily available both pre-breakfast and in the afternoon, but other than that, Pig Hill is a funky charmer.
We stayed in the main house. The room was comfortable and generally clean and tidy. The AC (it was August) functioned well. The breakfasts were average to below average compared to other B and B's I've stayed at. They were good, but not "wow" meals. Coffee was mediocre. The guest kitchen is small and not well stocked. Other B and B's I've stayed in had more snacks for after hours and offered afternoon wine/cheese and/or bedtime cookies, none here. The owner and helpers were wonderful and made us feel at home.
The inn was a really great place to stay. The room was nice and big and very comfortable. My only complaint is that they had a set menu. There were no options or alternatives if you didn't or couldn't eat what they offered, you just went without.
