We were heading up to Rhinebeck for a professional conference and having difficulty finding a place to stay. When the highly recommended hotel I called told me they had no vacancies, they gave me the good news- that we would be in for a treat if Mountain View Retreat had space. Within five minutes we had a complete change of plans and were headed up to Germantown. Patricia greeted us in the driveway and showed us around her house, which was as charming as it was comfy. She graciously offered us snacks, and made sure we had everything we needed in the way of convenience. She was charming, funny and attentive and made sure we were happy in every way possible. Her breakfasts are wonderful and so is her property - before leaving she took us on a hike, which was very zen. Mountain View is lovely!
