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.

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.

Weekend stay...

Three nights at Inn the Woods

4.8 on September 18, 2017

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.

Best Breakfast in Hyde Park

4.0 on August 16, 2017

While traveling this August to see the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Museum/Library. I decided to stay at an Inn instead of an AirBnb or local hotel. I read the great reviews about Inn the Woods. Harrison and Valarie could not have been more accommodating for my unique schedule.I am a very early riser..4:30am, they were so gracious to arrange breakfast for me at a much earlier time than usual. They provided coffee for me at my early hour as well. The room was great, and I found the overall experience to be above average. Truly the breakfast takes the cake! If you are a breakfast person then stay at the Inn just for this treat...fresh, homemade with a touch of gourmet! Loved it! Would recommend to others. Finally, the location is perfect for visiting the Roosevelt Estate and the Vanderbilt Home. Also you are minutes from Walk Across the Hudson. I took my morning run there just so beautiful!
