“casual victorian relaxation”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

I visited at the end of february and if you are looking for a casual bed and breakfast with a victorian feel then this is for you. Great breakfast and hospitality and housekeeping. Even better if you go in the spring or summer because they are on Beacon Mountain and it should be very bucolic at that time of year.

We spent Valentines Day at the Inn and absolutely loved our stay. From the time we were greeted warmly at the door by the Inn keeper Neil to our checkout we were made to feel like it was our home away from home. Breakfast was fantastic and Neil even drove us in to town so we could check out the local shops and restaurants in the evening. We would definitely stay here again.

My stay here was very pleasant and I will definitely returning, in fact I just booked to stay here again in the spring. The Swann Inn of Beacon is cleaner than any hotel I've ever stayed at, this was my first stay at a B&B. The rooms were comfy, and the B&B is filled so many small touches that make this a perfect stay.

Pros: Clean robes in the room, comfy bed, lovely spacious bathroom with nice amenities such as shampoo, face wipes, toothpaste and more, an awesome snack and drink table at the bottom of the staircase (picture), fresh baked treats waiting for you in the dining room, the inn keepers were very accommodating for breakfast selections and times. The rooms are as pictured on their website, and lovely. Close to an adorable downtown area just minutes from the inn with a wide selection of unique places to eat and shop, an Italian Restaurant was recommended the first night and it was delicious.

Cons: I had to leave! I stayed in the blue room which shares a bathroom across the hall with the peach room, it was a minor con because sometimes it involved a short wait. The bathroom was still definitely cleaner than a hotel by a long shot and nicer. This was only the case because it was a full weekend, but honestly the price is more than worth it. It squeaks a little and there is nose when people moved about...but it's an old charming house, definitely wasn't something that would discourage me from staying there.

Cozy, lovely property. If coming to beacon again for an overnight we would definitely stay again. We had a nice retreat from the city and felt many miles away. The owners really made sure we were left satiated and happy. I didn't see the other rooms but the red parlor room was really warm and spacious. Having a fireplace made it even sweeter.

We stayed here while visiting Watchtower facilities in Patterson, NY. Great location, beautiful scenery. The town had great places to eat and lots of interesting shops. Our hosts went the extra mile for us. My husband found that his pants had come apart at the side seam, Darlene sowed them up in a jiffy, and we were on our way. We left early in the am to drive home, Neil and Darlene got up early to make us breakfast...that was greatly appreciated. We look forward to next time.

Room Tip: we stayed in green willow room - bed was really comfy and the bathroom is big. Not a large room, bu...

We spent a delightful weekend in the Hudson Valley, and the highlight was our stay at the Swann Inn in Beacon, New York. It is conveniently located to points of interest in the area including West Point, Hyde Park, Bannerman's Island, as well as the galleries and antique shops of Beacon. Each room is cozily decorated with clean and extremely comfortable accompaniments.

Neil and Darlene are the most gracious hosts who make their guests not only feel at home but a part of the Swann Inn family as well. The pastries available throughout one's stay are delectable and the breakfasts are sumptuous. Be certain to ask Darlene what the secret ingredient of her french toast is.

Room Tip: Depends upon one's budget.

Wonderfully restored old home. Innkeepers Neil and Darlene are gracious and accommodating in every way. This location serves well as a starting point to visit Dia Beacon and points of interest south and north, including Cold Spring, garrison, Hyde Park and Rhinebeck. And sumptuous breakfasts included!

Room Tip: Each room is unique. We highly recommend the Red Room.
