My daughter and I spent a day at West Point Military Academy to visit my dad's grave; he was buried there in January. We stayed two nights in the area. We stayed at Stockbridge Ramsdell largely because it was a Victorian Mansion, and I love staying in old B&Bs that burst with character, and partly because it was less expensive than other B&Bs in the area. What we found was a gem. The hosts, Parish and Nancy, were some of the most accommodating hosts I've had, and I've stayed at a number of B&Bs. The breakfasts were delicious and sustained us until midafternoon. We were in the Bridge View room on the third floor, which was very comfortable and charming. All in all, it was a great experience. We will stay there again for future visits to Dad's grave.
