this is a real gem. From the moment we arrived to when we left we were treated like family. Anna at the front desk was welcoming and always had a smile on her face. What a great trip cant wait to go back


Wonderful property and service

5 on May 01, 2017

After dining at Henry's at the Farm quite a few times, we finally managed to reserve a room for a weekend at Buttermilk Falls Inn. Our room was spacious, comfortable and very well decorated, and the property is simply gorgeous - we loved taking the short hike to the waterfalls at the back, the pool and sauna at the spa and especially the llamas, goats, ducks and peacocks at the farm. Breakfast was delicious - I'm still craving the chocolate-hazelnut waffles. Dinner at Henry's at the Farm was superb. Can't wait to stay there again!


All Encompassing Relaxation

4.4 on April 19, 2017

Every stay at Buttermilk seems to be more and more enjoyable. From the inn, to the food/cocktails, to the grounds/animals to the amazing spa. Not to mention morning yoga outside overlooking the river - everything is just so incredible and relaxing. We will be back again.


Should be on your bucket list

We had a awesome suite overlooking the goose pond. Our suite was close to everything. The grounds were in early spring mode. Morning breakfast was delightful and so was the weather. Peaceful and beautiful.


A lovely weekend...

I was feeling so overwhelmed with the city life and needed to relax so chose the Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa after researching the internet. I was only able to do an over night due to time constraints but that one night was the most relaxed I have been in a long time. The Inn is lovely and the services impeccable. My room was stunning (Juniper 206) -- so much more than I thought it would be. Thank you for making my trip such an enjoyable one.


Babymoon Fun 2017

3.8 on February 24, 2017

My husband and I are having a baby in April of 2017 and wanted a babymoon not too far from home, but felt like an escape at the same time. My husband loves animals so the farm was a highlight for us. The animals were friendly and out walking around even though it was winter. The spa was a relaxing experience. Make sure you take a shower at the spa, it was amazing! The breakfast each morning was delicious and there was much variety in the buffet. The room and the property as a whole is very well kept and clean. I'd recommend the Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa to all friends and family.

4.0 on February 18, 2017

We stayed at the Inn for two nights earlier this week. We had a few glitches during our stay that the General Manager went above and beyond to correct once they were brought to her attention. We look forward to returning. The breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious. Afternoon tea delightful with treats and warm drinks. Our dinners at Henry's were fantastic. We didn't take in any spa services but did enjoy the pool, sauna, and steam room that are available to guests at the Inn. Thanks to the GM saving the day, we will happily return to Buttermilk Falls.


Wonderful Inn

Couldn't have asked for a nicer stay.


Lovely place! We will return.

Came for a mid-week getaway and couldn't have been more satisfied. The setting is lovely, the staff is accommodating and the food was good. We plan to return in spring.


Romantic getaway for all your senses!

My husband needed a break from his hectic business. I decided on Hudson Valley and Buttermilk Falls seemed perfect. It beat all expectations. The Maynor Flat was perfect with the fireplace and soaking tub adding to the romance. The property is so serene that stress just melts away. The sound of the falls is zen-like while the animals and farm brought us back to Mother Earth. We slept like babies and ate like royalty! I hope this positive review doesn't make it more difficult to get a reservation. Thanks for everything!
