This truly is a lovely mansion right out of the old south, decorated beautifully with antiques, and special touches that make one immediately feel welcome, as did our hostess, Miriam. The pretty decorations at the entrance added to the feel of the autumn season. Our room was luxurious with a breathtaking view of the Hudson River. The bath was updated and spacious. The chocolates and bottled water refreshed each day were appreciated. The gourmet breakfast was delicious each morning, and the snacks and beverages provided throughout the day and evening, were a nice touch. We enjoyed the wine and cheese in the parlor pre-dinner and a sip of brandy before retiring to our room at the end of the evening. Miriam is a gracious hostess and provides wonderful service to her guests. This is a lovely place to stay in the Hudson River Valley!
