Birthday getaway

5 on February 10, 2018

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Caldwell House to celebrate our birthdays. Being NYC natives, it was a nice, quick getaway to see what nearby Hudson Valley has to offer. Dena and John were great and personable hosts, and the breakfast was delicious! We definitely would like to come back again during the warmer months to enjoy the grounds more. :)

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy you enjoyed your birthday getaway and look forward to seeing you here again soon! Until then, all the best.

Enjoyable Stay at Caldwell House

4.8 on November 19, 2017

I often have business at West Point, and am so glad that I found the Caldwell House. It is convenient to West Point, less than a half-hour away, and a welcome reprieve from the usual cookie-cutter chains. The rooms are well appointed and clean, and the breakfasts delicious. All the staff are friendly and helpful. I hope to enjoy many more stays.


Quick Get Away To Storm King at Caldwell House

5 on November 06, 2017

We booked the Moodna Room at the last minute: 4-5 days in advance. Cant believe there was any availability! The main operator & otherwise Queen Bee, Dena ac accommodated our lateness gracefully: We were expecting to check in after official last check it at 7pm...then were another 90minutes late to a gorgeous but time-consuming google GPS freak-out. The brunch which powered our day at Storm King was exquisite; with the center piece a petite (almost filet-like) poached egg, on top of a little polenta disc, rounded with a strip of bacon, and then amazing muffins, breads - all kicked off with a heated mango starter. Given that we are kind of low impact & only stayed 2 nights, the service was amazing & the house & grounds are a perfect blend of 1800s charm & modern upgrades & amentites. We also had a couples massage, which was top notch. As a recipient of ALOT ALOT of physical therapy due to a life-altering injury, I can more than assert that the massage therapists are somewhere between top-tier healers & majick. We will be back, we should have left more time for Storm King...which needs to be seen multiple times anyhow. We came We saw We were pampered

I had a wonderful time at the Caldwell House, I would definitely stay again!

5 on November 04, 2017

I had a wonderful time at the Caldwell House. The setting is beautiful, the historic buildings have so much character, but the modern renovations make it very comfortable. The staff was amazing, everyone was polite, helpful and friendly. The food was outstanding, just delicious! The rooms and the grounds were all very well maintained and kept up. Overall, I would say that everything was just perfect.


Great time in the Hudson Valley.

5 on November 01, 2017

This was our first visit to the Hudson Valley and the Caldwell House. John and Dena were wonderful hosts and Dena provided delicious breakfasts. They have preserved much of the history and original structure while providing all the modern amenities. We will return to this lovely bed and breakfast.


My first B&B and I LOVED it!!!

5 on October 30, 2017

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Caldwell House last weekend for 2 nights. I have one word for our entire experience...PERFECT!!! We stayed in the Storm King room in the Carriage House and it was a large room with a ridiculously big bathroom and we loved that they had the original stone and wood beams from when it was a carriage house back in the 1800's. We sat on the outside porch at sunset with a bottle of wine and just took it all in. We never wanted to leave the room, it was that beautiful. John and Dena were such gracious hosts. Dena was so accommodating with our no-carb diet. Next time, we are eating EVERYTHING because her cooking was delish and the baked products that we couldn't eat, looked amazing! There are so many places to sit in a quiet setting on their beautiful grounds. The Carriage House had a shared kitchen with everything you could possibly need with complimentary coffee, snacks, games, a microwave and even a huge refrigerator if you want to bring some goods yourself, which we did. It is so close to the Brotherhood Winery, which was great and The Storm King Art Center, which was amazing...both within a few miles from the B&B. I was very sad when eating breakfast Sunday morning knowing we were going to leave, but we decided we will DEFINITELY be back every year, if not more often. Thanks again, for such a great stay!!!


A Gem in the Hudson Valley

5 on October 04, 2017

This is an historic property lovingly preserved a tastefully updated with modern amenities. The Caldwell House is a gem in the Hudson Valley and is centrally located for hiking, winery visits, and enjoying the beauty of the region.

"We'll return to Caldwell House B&B with glee!"

5 on September 19, 2017

My partner and I needed a cozy B&B approximately 30-45 minutes from home. Why? To escape from the routine of our daily lives and spend some quality time together. Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast fit the bill perfectly. The Innkeepers were an absolute delight, the rooms were both gorgeous and immaculate, and there were some fabulous amenities including the usual stuff (Wi-Fi, fancy schmancy gigantor flat screen TV, cable, etc) plus some sweet little extras like bath robes, slippers, a fire place, and both a clawfoot tub and walk-in shower. We felt like royalty for 24 hours. Location, location, location. Caldwell House B&B is not far from Storm King Art Center, West Point, Cold Spring, and Beacon. We hit Cold Spring on our way. Next time we're visiting Storm King Art Center.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review! We are so happy we were able to provide you with the weekend escape you were looking for. Please come see us again real soon!
