I was going to be in Newburgh for business, and didn't want to stay in the strip of chain motels, so I looked for a safer, more interesting place. This B & B didn't disappoint. It is in a charming, historical section of homes, and within walking distance of the waterfront and many restaurants. It was not a fussy, overdecorated home, but comfortable and accommodating. Besides the beautiful architecture, it is filled with local art, history books, and plenty of information about local sights. I enjoyed staying here very much, and would recommend it to anyone travelling through this area.
