“Comfortable and welcoming”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This charming B&B in the Hudson River Valley has lush gardens, friendly hosts, and comfortable accommodations. We enjoyed our stay there and will happily recommend it to others. A full breakfast included fritatta, muffins, scones, juice, coffee, fruit and yogurt--all delicious. Children enjoyed a kid-friendly bowl of cereal and fruit. Our room was quaint and lovely with window-unit air conditioner plus a big window to open and let in the fresh breezes. The location is simple to get to off of Route 22. The hosts, Lauren and Bob, love to share tourist spots, museums, festivals and ideas to explore the locale.

Room Tip: Rooms have beautiful views of the forests and wildlife. There is a large pond across the road.

In anticipation of our move to the area we stayed many weekends with Lauren and Bob. This is the most family friendly b&b that we've stayed in many years. The grounds and house are well kept. We were always greeted with freshly baked muffins. The beds are comfortable. The owners were flexible to our needs every time.

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...

We had a wonderful stay with Lauren and Bob. The room was very nice and very comfortable, our hosts were extremly welcoming and friendly. We were there a very short time but we feel as we made new friends in the area. They prepared a wonderful breakfast for us which was delicious. They reccomended places nearby for us to visit on the next leg of our journey which ended up be ing great fun for us. We will be visiting this area again and will be sure to stay there.

Charmingly cheerful and romantically old-fashioned, The Honored Guest Bed and Breakfast was the perfect weekend getaway for mine and my boyfriend's New Years ski trip. Not only was the B&B a lovely place to stay--quiet, with great food and a warm fireplace to cozy up by in the evenings--but Lauren and Bob were also delightful hosts and always eager to make our visit the best they possibly could, whether this meant leaving chocolates to surprise us in our room, offering us tips on attractions and restaurants, or just showing genuine interest in how our day had been. The B&B was located in easy access to Catamount (the nearby ski resort) and was only a short distance from Great Barrington, MA which offered a nice main street of shopping and dining. I would gladly recommend The Honored Guest to anyone thinking of staying in the area. I'm sure you'll be as pleased as we were!

This is our 4th or 5th time staying at the Honored Guest. We visit Hillsdale every year for the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and staying here is just wonderful. Lauren and Bob Dunn are extremely friendly and welcoming, and the B&B is perfect for us. Our room has a king-sized bed with lots of pillows, a comfy chair, and an antique armoire. The bathroom has a clawfoot tub. The breakfasts are delicious-- every day is different... homemade yogurt and muffins, French toast, eggs benedict, and plenty of hot coffee. We'll definitely be back.

This was a perfectly lovely place. The hosts were extremely friendly and chatty (almost too much so, if you are the type of traveler that wants more anonymity/privacy), the breakfasts were delicious - each day it was something different. Every evening they turned down the sheets and even changed the towels. There is a nice parlor where they have plenty of games, a piano and guitar for guests to use, and they'll even make popcorn for you. They also make great gluten-free banana muffins. The one thing we thought was odd was that there were no locks on the doors. There are only 4 rooms, and they rely on the honor system (so to speak!), so it wasn't a problem, but still, you never know. All in all, A+! We would definitely go back and recommend it to our friends.
