Love this B&B! Joan was very sweet and hospitable. She welcomed us with area info and delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. Buck's Homestead is a farmhouse that Joan grew up in, which I totally love. Room was very comfy, felt at home....I could live in this house no doubt. And Joan throws down quite a breakfast! Next time we are in the area we would love to stay at Buck's...and for longer! Shannon & Matt Connelly Grass Valley, CA

A great weekend with Joan Buck Smith :)

My husband and I last minute decided to take a mini vacation to Montgomery NY. Last minute we booked our stay at Buck's Homestead B&B. We had never experienced staying at a B&B and Miss Joan made this experience wonderful. We were warmly greeted by her and her cats and delicious cookies.Her house is very clean with a lot of history everywhere you look.Our bathroom was equipped with all the needed necessities. We would get up every morning to the smell of a breakfast that you'd die for¿¿. She was really helpful in being a tour guide. We will definitely visit her again.

Lovely Area and Home - But Problems

I will just give the pros and cons and you can make up your own mind. Pros - The area is lovely. The property itself is across from a farm and is also lovely. Great to be in an historic 1800s home run by Joan, the friendly host. Elaborate 3 course breakfasts. Keurig coffee and tea maker in the room (ours didn't work) and in the hallway (did work and we used it). Cons - We stayed for two nights. After our first night we left for the day at about 10AM. We returned at about 5:00PM to find our room hadn't been touched. I mean everything was as we had left it when we headed out that morning: Bed still unmade, trash still there, used coffee cups still where they had been. IOW - No one had come in to at least tidy up. We didn't necessarily expect fresh sheets, but NOTHING done? Also - There was a door was in our room with a sign "Private". We guessed the other side was Joan's private residence. When we came back on that same afternoon she must have been hosting a group party. We could hear everything. It felt like the people were in our room with us. Tough to relax after a long day. Luckily it didn't last beyond 7PM.

Buck's could not have been better.

How we lucked out in finding Joan and Buck's Homestead. Superb in every way. Thank you, Joan.

Just What We Needed

4.6 on October 24, 2015

We just returned from a two night stay at Buck's Homestead B&B. The few days leading up to our stay and the day prior to our arrival had been especially difficult due to the loss of one of our cherished cats. From the moment we arrived at Buck's Homestead, we felt welcomed and relaxed. Our room was comfortable and lovely with beautiful period furnishings. Very spacious bathroom in the Queen En-suite Room. The entire house was charming and warm. Joan had chocolate chip cookies to welcome us and delicious breakfasts each morning. She was also so helpful in recommending places to eat and to visit in the area. Her home is situated on a lovely country road and, of course, the fall foliage was just gorgeous! We met two other lovely couples at breakfast each morning which was an added bonus! And not to be forgotten, little Chippie put a smile on our faces each day. Meow! Thank you Joan for a lovely stay and for your warm hospitality. Ellen & Marc

Great B&B

Joan runs a fantastic little B&N in Montgomery. The room was very nice and comfortable. The food - well it was just wonderful. We stayed 3 nights and had just amazing meals. The eggs benedict was to die for. Joan also had some great tips for activities. We never would have seen the outdoor art at Storm King if she hadn't recommended it. The property is off the main road but close to the village center and close to sites to visit. Just a beautiful county home. Thank you so much for delightful time. Joe and Lori P. Denver CO.

Most pleasant stay

Joan has reestablished her childhood home into a wonderful B&B with amenities from the earliest part of the families history to the present. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. And the breakfasts were awesome!

A Great Get Away

4.8 on November 09, 2014

My boy friend and I like to get away for long weekends and drive somewhere not too far from the city. Our stay at the Buck's Homestead Bed & Breakfast worked out perfectly for one such get away. We spent two nights at Joan's warm and cozy home which meant we got to have two of her delicious and hearty country breakfasts. We were also lucky to have been the only guests those two nights so we enjoyed complete privacy moving about our bedroom, the sitting room and our private bathroom. The welcome we received from Joan was warm yet unobtrusive. It started with packages of chocolates and homemade cookies and ended with her own little booklet of her favorite breakfast recipes. And in between, there were bottles of water in the refrigerator and a Keurig machine with a supply of single-cup coffees and teas. Everything was clean, the queen-sized bed was comfortable, and there was a full supply of basic amenities, even dental floss and toothpaste. We would go back to Buck's Homestead if we happened to be in the neighborhood again.

Perfect Get Away!

Thank you Joan for an awesome stay at your home. We had a most delightful stay in your charming Bed and Breakfast. My girlfriend and I typically go away in the fall for a "Girls Get Away" from all our kids and husbands. This was the terrific spot for us to start our adventures in the Hudson Valley. We thoroughly enjoyed your warm welcome, comfy accommodations and fabulously delicious breakfasts. The little town of Montgomery was adorable and your tip to head down to Cold Spring for antiquing and lunch was perfect too. Thanks again for a marvelous stay.
