“Perfect Weekend Getaway in Wine Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

My partner Peter and I spent the weekend here in mid-November for our third anniversary and to take in an early holiday wine tour. From the moment we arrived, the Beekman house felt like home. Chuck and Gerry had a lovely reception in the evening with wine and snacks which bought together guests for great conversation and exchanges. In the morning, Chuck showed off his culinary skills (and I am not joking, he is an ACTUAL chef - no continental breakfast with plain waffles here!) with 3-course breakfast each morning of our stay, with complete description on how the flavors interacted and were diverse but balanced to pick up on each vibrant flavor. Our first morning we had a more savory meal plan with delicious quiche after a homemade pastry and fruit course and the second day was a more sweet-oriented meal with stuffed french toast, after wonderful fresh baked scones and a citrus fruit with mint (I believe, I am writing this 3 months after the fact, I remember the fruit because it was meant to balance the sweet).
The rooms were well-kept and homey with lovely updated bathrooms. We had the smallest room but by far it has the best bathroom with a separate shower and claw tub that I made use of. Although the bathroom is separated by a little private hall, it is like having a little wing of the house of your own. I peeked into the other 3 rooms when everyone checked out since we were last to leave, hence by ability of comparison, but other bedrooms had more room in the bedroom and more lush bedding. I loved our room and did not feel any regret by taking the smallest room, especially due to price reflection and the beautiful bathroom. Our room was made up when we were wine touring and came complete with a true mint on the pillow.
I know there are many B and B's to sort through in this area, but this is probably one of the best. The food, the atmosphere and the extreme attention to detail set the Beekman House far above expectations. I highly recommend and would gladly return for a quiet weekend.

Absolutely amazing experience. We were greeted by our host as we came up the sidewalk and welcomed as if we were visitinf family for the holidays. As soon as we entered the front door we knew we had found something special. The details in the decor and attention to the history of the home is amazing. We were shown our room which was exquisitely decorated with the mozt comfortable bed I have ever encountered. Ws even had an original skeleton key to open the door with! Breakfast did not disappoint, in fAxt it was so satisfying we skipped lunch. From scratch scones, poached pear with marscapone were to die for. The palate cleansing sorbet between courses was a course of its own! Dutch baby pancakes were too big to finish but don't worry, the have doggie bags. You will love 1898 Beekman House!

We found this B&B on the web. We LOVED it! Gerry and Chuck are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts that Chuck (a Culinary Institute grad) made are out of this world--kick the diet to the curb! The room was finely detailed with a comfortable bed with exquisite linens and everything you could need. We will be back. We cannot stop raving about this place to everyone.
