David, the innkeeper, was a wonderful host and gave a good introduction to the amenities of the accomodation. He also was helpful in his suggestion for a bike route starting at the B&B and going through some of the nearby towns.
The room was clean and comfortable. It shares a bathroom with another room, but there weren't any issues with that. There is complimentary hot beverages and soda available at all times. There is also a collection of DVDs to choose from and a TV & DVD player set in our room. The breakfast was large and delicious, and different for the two mornings we were there. We had the vegetarian option which is the same as the regular, except with veggie sausage instead. It usually starts with yogurt and fruit. Then eggs, pancakes or french toast, toast, sausage or bacon, muffin or cake loaf. Well-kept accomodation. The main street of Windham with a few restaurants is just a short drive away. The free wi-fi worked well also. We left our bikes unlocked behind the B&B for 2 nights; no problems with that. We didn't encounter any problems during our stay.
On one day of our stay there, we biked from Windham to Hunter, then back west on 23A and then back to Windham. There is a 1000ft climb at the beginning, but the rest of the route is relatively flat. We found a store/cafe to stop for cold beverage, which we later returned for dinner. This store/cafe had many vegetarian and organic options. On 23A, we stopped at RSK farm stand for fresh apples. You will also see an Ukrainian Catholic church with particular architecture along the way. We then had a cold beer at Cave Mtn Brewing Company, which seems to be a popular brewery restaurant in Windham. Another good restaurant in that area is Maggie's in Tannersville.
