My boyfriend and I came to Brookfield for New Paltz graduation, what we found was a beautiful, calm, comfortable, sweet, relaxing getaway. Everywhere you look there's a nice touch. I can't express enough how the Caroline and Michael have thought of everything - from the decor to the treats to the breakfast in a basket in the morning. We loved our room and the grounds and the vibe. We will definitely be back.
My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and always wanted to. We were both so impressed! The house is quaint and the room spacious and immaculate. The amenities exceeded our expectations and the small touches (from fresh flowers in the room, chocolates on our pillow to pretty breakfast napkins and much more) made our stay even more special. Caroline and Michael were warm and welcoming. So much to do in the area as well. It was a perfect anniversary weekend. We will be back! - Dawn V.
My fiance and I stayed in the Garden suite over the 4th of July weekend. We had a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived. An idyllic, peaceful setting, beautiful views and bucolic walking trails - you are surrounded by nature at its best. The animals are very friendly. Caroline and Michael Murphy are warm, welcoming and generous hosts. The room was immaculate and fully furbished with everything we could possibly need. You really can't ask for anything more in a B&B. We fell in love with Brookfield Farm and the Hudson Valley. Our only regret was having to leave! We expect to be regulars in the future.
From the bunny welcoming us on the drive way to the picnic basket breakfast, Brookfield Farm is blissful. The rooms are spacious, well appointed with shaker style decor. The cattle are docile and the chickens quiet, no early morning wake up call to breakfast as it is available right outside your door at 8:30 am. We booked both the rooms in the main house WiFi worked great TV's a bit small , but with all that is available in the area no time for TV. This B&B tucked away in the Hudson Valley region is a great starting point to loads of activities from antiquing, rock climbing, hiking tubing and even sky diving. Caroline and Mike are available but not intrusive, you will not regret booking your stay here!
I stayed for 2 nights with my boyfriend to relax and recharge for the weekend. And this B & B is interesting in comparison to others because of the different animals that the owners have on the premise and I find them pleasurable and unique in the experience. There is also a pool to enjoy, though given the short period of time I was there, I didn't get to do that. The owner, Caroline was very nice and informative on the things that we would like to do. I was into hiking, as my boyfriend was into wine tasting so there was something that the both of us an enjoy in the area. The breakfast was a pleasure, which was delivered to the room each morning fresh and warm. There are only 2 rooms in the private home to take guests in, so that makes it more private than other bed and breakfasts that have more accommodations and I appreciate that as well.
My friend and I enjoyed our stay at Brookfield very much. Each morning of our three night stay there was a basket of freshly, home baked, scones or biscuits and jam plus fresh fruit outside of our door. A galley area in the room provided cereals, granola, tea and an electric kettle, also a small refrig.with milk, oj and a supply of yogurts. Though off the beaten path, it proved a great hub to the destinations we visited in the mid-Hudson Valley. The close proximity to New Paltz provided good restaurants.A beautiful property with a pool; the farm has a wonderful perimeter trail for morning or evening walks. The innkeepers helped us with directions, shortcuts, and helped me locate a walk-in clinic for me to have stitches that had to be removed during my trip.And finally, very reasonable rates- particularly the weekday rates.
We stayed 2 nights in mid to late August. The web site pictures don't do justice for the property. The grounds are meticulously maintained and stunning. The pool area is perfect for sun bathing. We brought our breakfast to the pool every morning. As for the rooms...super comfortable and quiet. The details in the room are perfect. Room amenities included many types of tea, yogurt, hair dryer and soft towels. The one thing that concerned us was the lack of warm cooked breakfast. However, to our surprise the HOMEMADE muffins, scones and fresh fruit was the right amount to get our day started. Plus they were simply delicious. I would highly recommend this property.
Brookfield Farm is an excellent B&B. The location is secluded, but close to New Paltz and surrounding attractions. Food and service was fantastic and it was one of the cleanest and quaint places I've ever stayed.
We had a wonderful time at this B&B, which is just 2 hours from NYC. The room was huge and spotless. There was a fridge stocked with water and juice, fresh fruit available upon our arrival, and snacks in the room. The breakfast was delicious. The space was quiet and the pool was a huge plus on a hot summer day. We loved the cows and rabbits on the premises and there was a lovely walking trail around the farm. The owners were extremly nice and accomodating. It's only a 10-15 min drive to New Paltz, but we really felt like we were in the country. Overall, this was a great weekend escape from the city and we would definitely come back.
WOW! what a great experience. felt like we were staying with close relatives. I can't say enough about the hosts. The food was excellent and the grounds were scenic and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. we are currently looking for an excuse to go back to Brookfield Farm Bed & Breakfast. Thanks again Caroline & Michael Murphy.
Caroline and Mike were very accommodating to me with my late arrival. I wish I had more time to stay there. The suite was so tastefully done. I truly enjoyed my short stay and hope to come back when I can spend some more time. Thanks again, Jan, Florida
Beautiful farm setting, the rooms were clean and quiet. There is a walk to a pond on the property -- saw beaver, turtles, birds, fish and a blue heron. The resident cows and chickens are an added attraction. All in all, I would recommend this B and B to anyone looking for a great getaway retreat.
I grew up in this area and visited for a wedding. Was looking for a quiet place with reasonable rates. What a beautiful surprise! We were very impressed with our room(with a separate "living room") and all of the many "little things". Very detail oriented. Even had breakfast served to the door. I dont think they missed anything! We will definitely stay there again when we visit. Very serene. Very peaceful.
100% lovely experience. Clean. Quiet. Very comfortable king bed. Birds chirping. A pool even! A quiet getaway in the country, actually on a farm, close enough to enjoy New Paltz or the Gunks for a steal. The real uniqueness I thought was the beautiful little fancy chickens that come out to feed in the morning and the contrasting huge beatifiic Highland Cows in the (fenced off) pasture behind the property. I have never seen anything like these 3 fluffy cows that seem to share the gentleness of their owners, Michael and Caroline. Oh, and the breakfast! Fresh, original and delicious all delivered discreetly to your door with an entire pot of tea or coffee in a picnic basket. No wonder my boyfriend chose this place to propose to me! I was floored. Awesome and reasonably priced for all that you get. I will be back!
Imagine waking up to bright sunlight, cool breezes and cheerie birds welcoming the beautiful day. Notice the absence of car sounds. Now imagine crawling out of a comfy bed in a neat-as-a-pin country style room to eat a homemade breakfast of fresh fruit and 3 kinds of breakfast breads in addition to the cereals and yogurts in the fridge. I work at a B&B and this an exceptional B&B! We would stay again in a heartbeat!
The decor was charming. I felt like I was in a little cottage out in the woods. Yet there were still modern amenities. The continental breakfast was delicious. The location was very convenient. Close to apple picking and new Paltz. We will definitely come again!
Enjoy quiet solitude as you go for an early morning walk around the property or neighborhood after saying good morning to The Ladies - a small flock of wonderfully inquisitive and especially good looking hens! Sit in the sun on the pool deck and enjoy your breakfast of fresh baked goods with savory sides. Juice and fresh fruit are always available from your room's fridge. The pool is especially refreshing and beautifully accented with planter and seating/sunbathing options. Accomodations are immaculate! This is a perfect place to decompress, enjoy the surroundings and catch up on some 'me' time, but not one if you are looking to mingle with others. Many great dining options in the area. We had a wonderful stay!
Wow, Brookfield Farm is a wonderful little haven. What a quiet, replenishing sanctuary! The rooms are indeed immaculate and marked by quaint, simple shaker decor. The mini-kitchen with fridge is a very useful amenity and comes stocked with nice supply of dairy staples and cold water. The landscaping in the back area is lush and welcoming. The above ground pool with deck is sparkling clean. And of course the animals are adorable. The rooms and grounds are very country-quiet and the 2 unit occupancy limit helps maintain that feeling. Caroline and Michael are gracious hosts who know a great deal about the area and are very attentive & helpful. The complimentary breakfast was full of delicious fresh baked goods and fresh seasonal fruits. The only very minor complaint that we had was that the shower (in the Garden Suite, at least) didn't have a removable shower head (a quirky pet-peeve of ours). On the plus side though, the dispenser soaps and shampoos were delightful. Brookfield Farm B&B helped us have a wonderful weekend get-away (that included a terrific Drive-in movie in the nearby Overlook Theatre and a great dinner in New Paltz!). The owners' willingness to book a Saturday only reservation (and at such a reasonable price!) was a truly welcome find. We look forward to visiting again for a longer stay!
