My wife took me hang gliding near Middletown NY for my birthday and we stayed at the Dominion House for the weekend. Katie was a fabulous hostess and when you go you must ensure her Peach French Toast is on the menu - this was the best breakfast I've ever had at a B&B! And her scones were more delicious then those of my Irish Grandmother!
The house is large and many of the rooms are filled with interesting historical items. The property is sprawling and lovely. On Friday afternoon after cooling off in the pool, we sipped cocktails (our own) and watched a variety of beautiful birds - humming birds, golden finches - quite relaxing.
On Friday night we took a blanket into the back yard - which is really a very large field - and watched the stars. On Saturday night after the hot tub, we again enjoyed a romantic evening of stargazing.
We enjoy B&B's often and Dominion House is in our top three! Great breakfasts, wonderful hospitality, romantic, and if you're adventurous, try hang gliding at Hangar3 which is just a few miles away in Middletown.
