A Fine Place to Stay in Stamford

Service friendly and attentive; the place is clean and appointed consistent with its age. Interesting historical fact: the home was originally built by Dr. Churchill, who donated the top of Mt Utsayantha to the town.

Keep Mike From Being Bored!

The The Queen of the Catskills - The Colonial BB is a most excellent value that cannot be calibrated in monetary terms. From the initial emails to confirm reservations, to the personal phone calls to inquire about any special needs or desires we might have, Flerida and Mike where genuinely concerned for our needs and enjoyment. A perfect example is Mikes call to us when we were out walking the town getting some ice cream. He called and asked if we would like to sit by a fire and get warmed up now that the evening was getting chilly. I think he was just bored, (Ha Ha) but we both saw it as a gesture of immense hospitality! The fireside chat was a relaxing and enjoyable cap to a wonderful evening. Top it off with a clean comfortable room, great night sleep and a made to order delicious omelet, our one night virgin B&B get away was a memory one that will last a lifetime. Thank you Mike and Flerida!

Innkeeper Response
You were both delightful. We are so happy that your first B&B experience was positive and that it was here with us. Be careful riding that bike Mike and Karen, I will find out where you can find that mattress topper. Enjoy your summer. Again, thank you for choosing The Colonial B&B - The Queen of the Catskills. Hasta Pronto, Flerida and Mike

What a great place to spend an evening and day! Treated like family from the minute we walked in, and finished , with what I can only describe, as an incredible breakfast! I can't wait to return!

Great, yet affordable place!

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night this summer and I am happy we chose the Colonial B&B as opposed to the 'standard' hotel/motel. Flerida and Michael were very pleasant and our accommodations were above-par. The breakfast they cooked was great! If we are in the area again we will definitely stay here again!

Innkeeper Response

One of the best!

My husband and I stayed at this bed and breakfast during the winter, and my what a beautiful place! The house itself is breath taking, the inn keepers were by far the best we have ever had, and our room was simply beautiful! We stayed for a quiet relaxing wknd away from home, and from the moment we arrived that's exactly what we got! It was snowing when we arrived and they pulled the couch right up next to the fire place, put glass of wine in our hands and just made us so comfortable! We came as strangers, and left with friends! Just can't say enough about this bed and breakfast.... ohhhh yeah, speaking of breakfast, HEAVEN!!!!! These inn keepers can really cook! Wow.... we had such an amazing breakfast and there was so much delicious food, she even gave us some to go!!!! We will deff be back to this one soon! Simply the best!

Innkeeper Response
