I visited Stockbridge Ramsdell with my boyfriend, his brother, and their father--they are all from Colombia and I am from the US. We were not the sole guests at the b&b--there were also Japanese, Korean and Polish guests (in addition to a few other Americans.) The breakfasts, cooked by Nancy and Parish, were not only delicious but the company was interesting and lively.
The rooms are amazing--you can build you own fire, and we had a beautiful view of the Hudson River. Nancy and Parish were really attentive to our needs. My boyfriend and I were splitting a bottle of wine up in our room--when the bed was made (by Parish or Nancy) they saw we didn't have proper wine glasses and so left us a pair.
Newburgh is an interesting city, made more so by its proximity to Beacon and NYC. It has clearly fallen on hard times but it is a place with character. We spent 4 days going back and forth from Newburgh to Beacon and other parts of upstate NY. We were always happy to come home to the warmth, hospitality and comfort of the Stockbridge Ramsdell House. Thank you for a great stay.
