Spent 3 nights with the Finnerans in October, using their B&B as a base for day tripping to attractions nearby (Storm King Sculpture Park) and less nearby (Phillip Johnson Glass House). Accommodations were very comfortable and well maintained, breakfasts were terrific, staff was uniformly friendly and efficient, and the Finnerans were personally a delight to visit with.

I have been a guest at The Caldwell House numerous times and recently returned for a wonderful girls' weekend/birthday celebration. We occupied the 3 rooms inside the Carriage House. Each room has it's own character and they are beautifully appointed. The beds are so comfortable and the showers are huge! The amenities are top-notch and we enjoyed having the kitchenette to hang out together. John and Dena are so welcoming and Dena's breakfasts are delicious! The bonfire was an added bonus to an absolutely beautiful weekend. As always, The Caldwell House is a place where you will ALWAYS want to return!
We don't know who the w/e was more memorable for - us or your group! We had so much fun talking with you and getting to know each of you. We can't wait until you are back for your next girls weekend!

My wife and I spent a few days here and we only wish it could have been longer. Our room was simply delightful. The bed was the most comfortable bed we ever slept in. The room was very cozy, but incredibly spacious. The tub was a perfect way to relax after a day out and about. Dena and John are so lovely. Dena makes the most remarkable breakfasts and even brought us an afternoon pie! The grounds are well kept and the entire experience was just wonderful. We are already planning on returning.
We wish you could have stayed longer, too. We enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you here again soon!

My wife and I were looking for a peaceful, comfortable and welcoming bed and breakfast to have our wedding. Our entire wedding group of 14 stayed in the Main House. The grounds of the Caldwell are absolutely beautiful and the rooms are outstanding. Dena and John made my family feel like we have known them forever. The attention to detail from Dena, John and their staff made our wedding day so special, memories that my family will share forever. We plan to come back each year for our wedding anniversary! There is not enough I can write about this wholesome and charming getaway, it was just perfect for our small intimate wedding. We enjoyed all of the areas of the house as well as the patio where we sat and relaxed around the fire at night. If you are looking for a bed and breakfast in the area, your search should absolutely end with the Caldwell House.
We so enjoyed hosting you, your family and friends for your wedding. You were all so lovely and nice. Can't wait to see you every year on your anniversary!

I surprised my wife with an overnight getaway to Caldwell House and she loved it. It's beautiful, rustic, elegant, and the hosts were wonderful, very warm and hospitable. I liked how quiet it was, and it's a short drive to both Storm King and Dia if you're interested in sculpture.

The owners are beyond friendly and helpful; our room in the main house was charming, historic and "modern" in all the right places; the breakfast was delicious and the dining room beautiful. We cannot wait to return!
Thanks so much - but we can only be "beyond friendly" with wonderful folks like you who are equally so! We can't wait to see you again!

This B & B is a gem situated in the Hudson Valley near West Point and Hyde Park, NY. The owners, Dena and John, were so accommodating and our rooms were exceptional. Dena is a great chef and prepared very delicious breakfasts that gave us a great start to our day. There was also early morning coffee/tea and breakfast snacks available before scheduled breakfast time of 9 am. The property is really impressive with three buildings, original house, carriage house, and the converted barn, for a total of 14 rooms. Don't miss out staying here if you plan to be in the area.
Thanks so much. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in the Hudson Valley and at our Inn. Please come see us again soon!
