If you've been to The Honored Guest in Hillsdale, NY you'll know what I mean when I say that your hosts, Bob & Lauren, are the most accommodating, interesting, and fun people you could want to meet. Recently widowed, I felt very cared for. Not to mention their great breakfast recipes!
The B&B itself is absolutely charming, comfortable, and private - a romantic world reminiscent of a hundred years ago but with all the modern conveniences. It is nestled in a gorgeous nook of NY on the tri-state corner of NY, CT, and MA. Since the area is a weekend retreat for the wealthy it is not advertised to tourists. But the guilty secret is that it is the "back garden gate" to the Berkshires as well as surrounded by wonderful places to walk, hike, bike, ski, fly, buy antiques, eat fine food, and for local activities such as bird-watching, photography, tea tasting, wine tasting, cheese tasting, gardening, museums, a tiny but exclusive zoo, private schools...
