Very comfortable stay!

We spent two very enjoyable nights at Sam's cottage. Both the bed and sofa in our room were very comfortable and the room had a nice cozy feel. Alyssa's breakfasts were delicious There was some noise from the road, but the B&B is right next to the golf course, so pretty quiet overall. Not sure exactly where the picture was taken from though. The room was spotless and had lots of small touches for comfort, like a selection of teas, lots of towels and nice smelling soap. Alyssa gave us great tips about the area and restaurants too.

A Lovely Place to Stay

We stayed at Sam's Cottage B&B on the Greens for a weekend in September. It was a great location between several places we were visiting. Alyssa is a thoughtful host and a fantastic cook as both breakfasts (the only onsite dining) were absolutely delicious. The suite was clean and perfectly outfitted. My only critique is that the bed is very hard so it was uncomfortable for our personal taste.

Great Location

Sam's Cottage was a great place to stay in a very interesting area of New York. Peter and Alyssa were totally welcoming and made time to visit with us informally on the patio in the backyard and shared a beverage. We enjoyed meeting their son as well. They made sure we were comfortable in the suite (!) and had everything we needed.

Wonderfully cozy

Sam's Cottage is a wonderful spot and proved a great get-a-way from the city. Super warm and cozy as we where there over a frigid wintery weekend. It is a simple room but has everything you could possibly need and reflects a high standard of cleanliness. The innkeepers are friendly and extremely generous. It is very convenient to get to and ideally located near New Paltz, Gardiner, and Kingston. Will have to get back there during spring and summer as the golf course mentioned is literally across the street and provides an amazing view with the Shawangunk Mts behind it.

Good base for Hyde Park

4.4 on August 25, 2014

Less than 30 minutes from the bustle of Hyde Park (across the bridge at Poughkeepsie), this is a charming, quiet place to stay. Unlike many b&b houses, which offer a bedroom with shared common areas, Sam's Cottage is more like a private studio apartment that the hosts have designed at the side of their home. Everything you might want is right there: flat-screen TV, comfortable bed, a recliner for two, and many options if you choose the do-it-yourself continental breakfast. (The chef was out of town the night we were there, so we didn't get to try the full breakfast,). The bathroom is small, but has a full-size tiled shower. Overall, this was a great place for my husband, who wears a leg brace: only a couple of steps up to the front door.

Excellent place to stay - our visit 8/14-8/15

We had a wonderful experience. Our room was clean, tidy and kept that way. The hosts made sure that anything that we needed was available. The food was perfectly prepared and the presentation was excellent. All in all, a wonderful stay.
