Our favourite accommodation on this trip!

5 on August 07, 2018

We stayed in the Tree Top Suite for 2 nights whilst exploring the Catskills and the FDR House and Museum. Without a doubt, this place is very special. The accommodation was luxurious with open plan kitchen, bedroom, sitting and dining area as well as lovely shower room. I misunderstood the sleeping arrangements, thinking that there was a separate area for the third person in our party but all was well as the room is so spacious. Harry and Valarie's hospitality is amazing! The breakfasts, made with their own produced ingredients, conversations and outlook were delightful. If we hadn't planned so many things to do in the area in a short time, we could have stayed at the Inn all day chatting - and imagine if dinner was provided: it would have been Heaven! We are keen to return to spend more time in the area and hope to stay there again!

We loved the Inn the Woods.

What a tranquil retreat and such gracious hosts. We loved sitting on the porch and watching the colorful birds perch on the feeder. A real gem!

A Pleasant Visit

The hosts go out of their way to see that all needs of guests are met, and in fact, exceeded.

Very Pleased

I once again enjoyed my brief stay and the wonderful peace and quiet and hospitality. Excellent breakfast and I can say that the breakfast sausage was the best that I have ever eaten. Thank you!

Wonderful experience.

Excellent Experience

The room and bathroom were spotless. The bed was very comfortable, I loved having an in- room mini refrigerator, the homemade breakfast was delicious, and the proprietress was very knowledgeable. It is located in a beautiful area and is close to the historical sites. I highly recommend this B&B.

Very peaceful, clean, and friendly

I picked this place because I wanted a cozy place instead of a regular hotel. The place was quiet and very clean with beautiful nature views. I traveled with my daughter and we felt very safe like home. The breakfast was homemade and delicious. While eating we saw lots of different birds. The owners were very friendly, and they gave us great information for sightseeing.

A wonderful place to stay!

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.

Wonderful Stay at Inn the Woods

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

Two night/weekend stay

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.
