My husband and i had the privilege of celebrating our 32nd anniversary at Chuck and Gerry France's 1897 Beekman House in Dundee, NY. It was by far the best anniversary ever! Chuck and Gerry were attentive without being smothering and then we feasted on an incredible breakfast - actually it was so much more than a simple breakfast - we started with Gerry's famous almond-poppy seed bread. Then chef Chuck brought in a pear poached in a red wine reduction stuffed with spiced mascarpone cheese - we scraped the plates clean. Finally, the pièce de résistance: Eggs Benedict, as i have never had before which is not surprising as chef Chuck smokes his own Canadian bacon and the English muffins and hollandaise sauce were made from scratch. As if that wasn't enough, the home is beautifully decorated in the Victorian period. The house has fascinating architectural details and the owners are restoring the original dormers. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay and can't wait to return!
