Charming and delightful

Beautiful 19th century manor house with many rooms. Extremely comfortable bedding - noticeably so. Delicious breakfast, large rooms, pleasant sitting rooms.


Nice BnB

3.0 on January 29, 2017

We stayed here for a romantic night away. We reserved the room with the Jacuzzi which was a nice touch. The room also had a fire which was great. We went to dinner at the Culinary Institute of America which was about 20 min away which was nice. The room overall had a cozy feel but was a bit cold and the bathroom was somewhat small which made it tricky to shower and do makeup but other than that it was nice. The breakfast in the morning was delicious although very filling and rich so I'm glad we only stayed one day! The man who owned the place was very friendly and we enjoyed talking with him in the morning and had a lot in common with him which was one of the best parts, as it made it more personal.


A wonderful stay

We were there only one night, however, it was great. We are planning on relocating to the area later this year; while we are house hunting we definitely plan on staying at Bykenhulle House.

My husband and I planned a Birthday weekend getaway and it was really amazing. The staff were very warm and friendly and the breakfast was delicious. We would stay again without any hesitation. I recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet peaceful retreat.


Welcoming B & B

3.4 on October 05, 2016

Bykenhulle House was the best B & B that we stayed at during our tour of New York state. Pleasant room and friendly and interesting owners who seem to enjoy spending time with their guests. We also very much enjoyed the grounds of the house which are extensive. Good value for the money.


Lovely Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on October 04, 2016

The Bykenhulle House was charming and lovely. Neat and clean. The breakfast was very good and the homemade cookies on the table near the stairs are a nice treat. Our room was quiet. We enjoyed our walk around the grounds and just hanging in our room. They encourage you to enjoy the living rooms and read, a great place to unplug. In each room is places to visit and restaurant recommendations. We were unaware of all the history in the area and wished we had more time to stay. We came and went as if we were visiting family/friends. The inn keeper and house manager made us feel very welcome and definitely a place we would visit again.

Peaceful, Antique, Romantic

We stayed at Bykenhule House over Valentine's Day weekend. The breakfast is served by chief graduated from Culinary Art Institute. Homemade bread, fruit salad with fancy sauce. Our Penthouse with Jacuzzi was roomy and felt like home. The dining room holds unique a couple centuries ago mms made furniture, classical music creates romantic fairytale like atmosphere. Beautiful firewood fireplace , great conversation with the owner. The place holds a history. Also so close to Teddy Roosevelt museum, Vanderbilt House. We loved to visit the world famous Towne Greer Cafe venue. Great food, awesome music. Housekeepers create worm, cousy, f Amityville atmosphere. That was the best Romantic Getaway Ever. Thank You.
