My husband and I stayed at Costello's for 3 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in The Canopy Room which was clean, and the bed very comfortable! Patsy was a joy, and had a wealth of knowledge, not only about the area, but about her father, who worked for The Vanderbilt Mansion, and The Roosevelts. She truly made... More

First of all, let me emphasize that the house was immaculately clean. It was very cluttered but clean. Patsy is very pleasant. However, the queen sized bed was in reality a double bed and the twin sized bed was a cot and neither of them are comfortable. Be warned that the Nautical Room did not lock from the outside so...

My husband and I, brother in law and sister in law stayed at Costello ' s overnight while visiting my nephew at Marist. Patsy could not have been more hospitable and our rooms were very comfortable.

I took the Nautical room, and really enjoyed the home. Patsy was a real pleasure to get to know. The wi-fi was strong, and I had full access to the bathroom, and a fridge in the little study. I was there a week for an Omega training, and it really made my stay exceptional.

Couldn't agree more with the other positive reviews of Costello's. Patsy is indeed a seasoned, charming and indefatigable innkeeper with deep knowledge of the area and a wonderful sense of what guests need next. My room was totally clean, comfortable and well decorated. Embarrassed to say that I don't remember much because I slept so quickly and soundly in the... More

I wasn't able to book a place at Omega and chose Costello's for proximity and price. Just lovely. Patsy greeted me, gave me a little of the history of the house and made me feel very welcome. There are only two rooms that she rents out. My only reservation is that the other guest, arrived from Omega before me and... More

Perfect location. Just an uncomplicated and simple way to stay. Patsy was very welcoming, very knowledgeable and just downright friendly. There is Cranberry's right around the corner for breakfast and a refrigerator for anyone needing it. The rooms and sitting room were spotless and the WiFi worked perfectly without interruption. All this at a really reasonable price.

Patsy is a really kind and natural person and is a totally professional host - you can tell she has been doing this for a long time.

We just returned from a delightful stay at Costello's Guest House. The trip was wonderful, and the accommodations delightful. Patsy is an amazing authority on the Roosevelt's. Plus, she was very helpful with recommendations on what to see. She even helped us arrange a tour of the Culinary Institute of America, which we hadn't expected. Patsy's B&B is right in... More
