Honeymoon stay

4.8 on July 31, 2017

On the first night of our honeymoon, we stayed at Bykenhulle House and couldn't not have asked for anything better. The room was beyond comfortable. The Innkeepers and owner, Mr. Beausoliel, were attentive to our every need and a pleasure to visit with. I found the place by chance and am very glad I came across it for this visit. I highly recommend it, and will definitely stay there again if every in the area.


Fabulous one-night stay!

What a wonderful stay!! Bill, Maria and Shannon were very gracious hosts and did a wonderful job taking care of everything we needed. (Bill's stories are the best!!) Next time we are in the Mid Hudson Valley I know where I will be staying, the biggest decision will be which wonderful room I would choose

It's always a pleasure serving our guests, meeting their needs and engaging in interesting conversation. Looking forward to your next stay.

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. We hope you will stay with us again soon and take advantage of all there is to do in the Hudson Valley area.

Good luck with your house hunting; we look forward to seeing you again.
