David & Justine were wonderful. The property was fantastic. The room was cozy and the bed was more comfortable than our own. And the food. The food was delicious. We had a great stay and would highly recommend. We will be back.
We were so so pleased with our 2-night stay at Smythe House in Saugerties. At first we were planning our stay for a one-night stop over to a longer trip. But I am glad we changed that plan and spent the weekend there. It is a destination in itself! The accommodations, the breakfast, the family, the environment inside and out. Justine and David certainly understand hospitality! Every detail was perfect. Including the smiles ad friendly presence. We were so so pleased. When you spend a few extra dollars to make a trip special you want it to be so. This home was! We got the room with the spa! Such comfort for this deserved break. Only gratitude. Thank you
Our recent stay at Smythe House was wonderful. Our room was cosy and clean, we had our own bathroom with a 2-person jacuzzi, and, best of all, we were able to bring our dog. The breakfasts were huge and delicious, our hosts were people I could see being friends with. All in all, a lovely experience.
The Smythe house is a wonderful place to stay with beautiful grounds, lovely themed-decorated rooms, and outstanding service. David and Justine are gracious hosts that will make your stay a memorable one with delicious gourmet breakfasts in a cozy pet -friendly setting. My wife and I had a great time on her Birthday weekend and will definitely be coming back to enjoy again.
This was my best stay ever. My girlfriend and I stayed at the zen room. Very well cleaned, taken care of and such a beautiful house overall. Justine and David were sweet and amazing hosts with their wonderful service. Everything just went perfect, and on top of that, the food was freshly made and fantastic. Overall everything was really great, we both enjoyed it and definitely returning sometime, thank you very much guys.
My girlfriend and I stayed in the zen room. The room itself is kept very cleaned, the whole setup is great, and i couldn’t ask for more. This was our first time and everything was perfect. Justine and David have such a beautiful house and the service was more than outstanding. It was immensely wonderful. This is definitely a place to remember for sure. The breakfast was very very fresh and tasty as well. Justine and David do an amazing job. Everything just went well :) thank you very much guys
The Hosts were very lovely and accomodating as we have 2 pets that needed to come with us as we stayed in this magical little house. My girlfriend was very impressed with the decor and amenities provided. Food and drink were excellent and the locale where this place was near was charming and close enough to other attractions. Definitely will stay again!
My wife and I stayed for 2 nights for our anniversary. The room was beautiful and very comfortable and the inn was charming and just what you would hope for. David and Justine were excellent hosts and the breakfasts were amazing! This is a great spot from which to explore the Hudson Valley and the Catskills and we did a fair amount of both. Or just find a good book and a comfy chair and enjoy the inn. Great dinner options right in Saugerties and plenty to do nearby. Highly recommended!
We stayed 3 nights for a minimoon. The suite was absolutely perfect! Beautiful view, a continental breakfast stocked in our fridge everyday, fresh fruit and amazing breakfast treats, OJ and the best coffee you’ll ever have. The room has a huge jacuzzi tub and shower. There is also a hot tub, which we took advantage of, hot tub with a light snow storm was heavenly. Wine vineyards and breweries just about a 30 minute drive, and great restaurants a mere 5 minutes away. We will be back in October and can’t wait! The owner is so hospitable, really a treasure.
I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday with a Memorial Day Weekend stay at Smythe House in the Bird room - it was fantastic! Highlights were our jacuzzi bath, insane movie collection and very delicious breakfasts. We could not have had a better time. The hosts even went out of their way to put birthday balloons and a happy birthday banner in the room, which was perfect. We loved our stay and would definitely come back to this oasis.
The Barclay Heights Bed and Breakfast at Smyth House was perfect. We stayed in the Bird Room and it was really clean and comfortable. Justin and David were also wonderful hosts. Breakfast was made fresh every morning and was delicious. They also gave us good recommendations for what to check out around the area. Their home is so lovely and was a pleasure to stay at. We hope to be back again and hope to check out their place in Costa Rica as well! - Cathy and Ben
My husband and I stayed earlier this year and I happened to come down with bronchitis the morning we were checking in. Needless to say it was an amazing place to relax and recover after a long semester away at school. Fresh pastries and orange juice every morning was delicious and the hot tub was awesome. The landscape was beautiful and sharing it with the wildlife was magical. Gilbert really made our stay feel like home and even offered to refund if I was too sick to stay. (Yea, we stayed) Can’t wait to go back!
We went to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The accommodations were fantastic. Large room and bath. Great shower and Jacuzzi. The place was extremely clean. David and Justine are fabulous hosts. I will be staying again. I highly recommend the Smythe House.
Our hosts were charming and knew all about the area. The food at breakfast was terrific, the room had all the amenities we needed, the bathroom had a Jacuzzi and a steam shower, it was perfect.
Barclay Heights Bed and Breakfast was the absolute perfect place for our quick getaway in October. We were treated like royalty. The hosts were so welcoming and attentive! Best breakfast ever and our room was so cozy and comfortable! We will definitely be back!
This was our first bed & breakfast experience and we couldn't have asked for a better place. David and Justine's house was absolutely beautiful and cozy. Saugerties is a perfect location for Fall getaway. It is close to Catskill mountains and Katerskill falls. The town also has cute local restaurants. Although we only stayed for one night we enjoyed our time at Barclay Heights. We were absolutely impressed by the breakfast that David prepared for us. Both of them were very friendly and we enjoyed our conversations during breakfast. We would definitely go back and recommend it to fellow travelers!
We stayed at the cottage which I loved because it is private, we went to the main house for breakfast. The owners were very hospitable and cooked us a delicious restaurant quality breakfast. Afterwards my son played in the back garden for about an hour on the trampoline, tree house, koi pond. Very nice weekend getaway I will definitely go back!
We came to this quaint B&B following our wedding for a quick weekend getaway, and the experience did not disappoint! The hosts were friendly and accommodating, the food was terrific, and the views were breathtaking. The ambiance was fun and relaxing, the bed was comfortable, the room was nice, and all the amenities were great. I would highly recommend this B&B and cannot wait for our next trip back!
We completely enjoyed our 2 night stay in this beautiful mountain penthouse paradise! Everything is clean and well kept with clear concise instructions on how to operate everything! Stay includes a jacuzzi as well as a private outdoor hot tub. The grounds which feature a breathtaking view of Overlook Mountain are often visited by many deer! The breakfast nook has a large window from which you can view the many birds and squirrels that visit the multitudes of feeders on the grounds. Upon arrival the owner will greet you with a tour of your penthouse and the grounds then leave you alone for the rest of your stay to enjoy your privacy! It's easy to find and a short drive from I-87 and near the towns of Saugerties and Woodstock on the edge of the gorgeous Catskill Mountains! We plan a return visit in the future!
This was our second time staying at the Smythe House and once again it was an amazing experience. Check in is super easy, the room is perfect, breakfast is to die for and the owners are just so nice and friendly. They are also very organized which we like. Next time maybe we make it a winter vacation to their Costa Rica bed and breakfast!!
Our stay at the Barclay Heights B&B was a wonderful and relaxing weekend. The property location was close to every thing we needed in regard to hiking, shopping, drinks & dining. Our hosts David & Justine Smythe welcomed us with warmth and made our stay an absolute pleasure. The house was immaculately clean and adorned with cozy decor. Our room was gorgeous and the bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast was delectable as David is a 5 star chef. We highly recommend Barclay Heights to all, and we look forward to returning!
