A wonderful place to stay!

4.8 on November 27, 2017

Having never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast, I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, so one must take my ratings with that in mind. The home itself is comfortable and pleasant, but what really made our stay wonderful was Valerie's interesting conversations and the delicious breakfasts we were served. We are history nerds and her knowledge of the area and the history surrounding the Roosevelts, as well as her knowledge about the nearby attractions, was impressive. The breakfasts may have been the best I've ever had--featuring homemade pear syrup and honey collected from her own honeybees. She always carefully wrapped up the freshly baked pastries for me to take along with me as snacks, since I couldn't possibly eat everything at one sitting. A lovely fireplace made the breakfast table very inviting and we enjoyed relaxing in the living room in the late afternoons, after the sightseeing was over and we were unwinding before dinner. If you are in Hyde Park, this is the place to stay.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The rooms were spotless and the host and hostess were lovely people. The breakfast each morning was top notch; fresh ingredients, plated nicely and very tasty. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast

Everything is as described. We had the top floor suite - I have never stayed anywhere this clean - spotless. I would recommend to anyone and plan to stay again.

Great breakfasts!

Breakfast was wonderful. The host and hostess were very accommodating of my need for gluten and dairy-free food and made special items for me. They use many homemade and locally grown items and make each day special. The upstairs room was large and great for three women for a ladies weekend. The Inn is very convenient to the FDR Library and the Culinary Institue.

Three nights at Inn the Woods

Lovely setting, not elegant but room quite large, comfortable and well equipped. Very well located relative to sites in area. Innkeeper knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Good breakfasts. Unless you are looking for a stately old Victorian inn furnished with period antiques this is a strong recommendation.

Last minute overnight

Had a very pleasant overnight. Stayed in Tree Top Suite. Room smelled a little musty when we first walked in, but turned on ceiling fans and that cleared up quickly. Rom was pretty well appointed. Breakfast next day was amazing. Our hostess was great. Knowledgeable about the attractions and the nature in the area. Had very active bird feeders outside a large window during breakfast, which presented a lot of entertainment. Overall, would definitely stay there again.

A delightful inn of course in the woods! Only good things to say about inn and innkeepers would recommend this inn and revisit thought breakfasts were wonderful fresh from local area thank you Valerie.

Exceeded our expectations

Being that Inn The Woods is not an old style, historical home, I wasn't sure what to expect. We stayed in the tree top suite. Super spacious. Super user friendly for towel storage, cloths storage, etc. The stand out of this B&B is the breakfast food. Home made jam, homemade sausage, home grown honey for a few examples. Breakfast also offers bird and humming bird viewing. Would definitely return.

My husband and I had a very lovely stay at Inn the Woods. The innkeeper was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. She gave us advice on local restaurants and sites to visit. The breakfast was exceptional - nice presentation and preparation. My foodie husband was quite impressed! The lodging was just beautiful and very comfortable.

A hidden gem in a beautifully wooded setting

We stayed in the Tree Top Suite and it was like waking up in a real tree house. Full of windows and light it was fantastic. Valerie and Harrison were warm and welcoming and met our every need. The breakfast each morning featured local ingredients (each with a story from Allison) and was perfectly prepared by the excellent chef, Harrison. The location is ideal if you are exploring the historical sites in Hyde Park or want to visit Rhinebeck just 15 minutes away.
