“Beautiful B&B! A fabulous experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2010

My husband and I spent last weekend at Pine Bush House, and we had an incredible time! The trip was about 1.5 hours from Manhattan, and the B&B was located in the cute little town of Pine Bush.

When we arrived, Mark and Barbara were waiting for us, and they were very warm and welcoming! Mark showed us around, explained all of the house's fun gadgets and gave us a dinner recommendation in the area. The B&B itself was furnished beautifully, had a large nice downstairs space to relax, and was very, very clean. The outdoor porch was lit with candles in the evening, and it was a perfect location for a game of Scrabble or a glass of wine.

We booked the Zinfandel Suite, which was just as beautiful as the website promised. The room featured soothing green and earth tones, a large 4-poster bed, armchairs, a fireplace (not wood-burning, but still romantic) and a flat-screen TV. We also had a small coffee-maker and wine chiller in the room. The bathroom was beautifully done and featured an elaborate steam shower that was fun to try out. The room was absolutely spotless, the furnishings and electronics were top-of-the-line, and the air conditioning worked well. I even noticed that the bedside drawer contained a flashlight in case you had to get up in the middle of the night...those little touches made a lot of difference!

We also peeked into the other rooms that were being cleaned, and they were equally immaculate and well-furnished. They definitely matched the photos on the website.

Breakfast was delicious, and Barbara was an excellent cook. The first day, we had a danish, an apple and walnut parfait, and a veggie frittata. The second day we had lemon-ricotta pancakes with fresh berries. The breakfast room featured plenty of coffees and teas to choose from, which were available 24/7. We were not around for teatime, but each night we noticed that cookies or other treats were left for us in case we wanted a snack before bed.

For activities, we were about 30 minutes from Mohonk Mountain House, a great place to go hiking. Pine Bush itself was a sleepy little town, but they had a small farmer's market on the weekends, a general store or two, and a big quilt/sewing shop. Barbara and Mark also had a number of brochures and suggestions for activities in the area.

Overall, we were really impressed with Pine Bush House, and would definitely recommend it for those planning a trip in the area!

Barbara and Mark are the consummate hosts, and they clearly enjoy what they do! They are helpful, warm, and accommodating without being intrusive. Mark printed us detailed maps to the local hikes, and we even heard him offer to drive a car-less couple to a local attraction. Breakfast was decadent (Barbara's scones and pastries are 5-star), but if you are health-conscious, they can also accommodate that. The fresh cookies every day and the unlimited and fantastic tea and coffee were great perks. This B&B has the right balance between modernity (free Internet, free movies on Apple TV, espresso machine, wine cooler in your room) and rusticity (cozy four-poster bed, welcoming old-school library, candle-lit front porch). We will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Pine Bush house as part of a visit to the West Point, NY area on vacation and made a reservation at the Pine Bush House online because of the relative location to West Point. To say I was surprised was an understatement!

We stayed in the Champagne Suite and I have never seen anything like it before in my life! It had an extremely advanced Jacuzzi / Steam shower, a toilet with a seat warmer and water cleaning feature (like Japan), an excellent TV with Apple TV "Movies on Demand" and a very comfortable bed. The room had amenities that you would have to spend thousands of dollars for in New York City.

Barbara and Mark were extremely warm and friendly. When we arrived, Barbara gave us a full house tour, baked us fresh chocolate chip cookies (Awesome!) and gave us excellent recommendations on what to do and where to eat in the area. Later that evening, Mark came out and had candles lit on the front porch while we sat outside and drank some of the local wine.

In the morning, Barbara prepared us an excellent breakfast. It consisted of a starter of fresh green apples and almonds with a light honey drizzle and then a delicious frittata. The selection of coffee and tea was excellent and was available to us at any time. They have an advanced Keurig type system for coffee at "off-hours".

Anyway, I'm a guy and I'm not usually as high on B&B's as my wife is, but we both agree that this was the best experience that we have ever had and that we will DEFINITELY return as long as Barbara and Mark are still the owners. The only tiny knock I can make is that it's a little bit away from the highway (10 miles from RT 17). That said, that's what you want when you truly want to get away from it all.

My husband and I went to Pine Bush House to celebrate our anniversary and we had a wonderful time! Our hosts were gracious and very helpful when it came to local activities. Breakfast was amazing and so was the house. It had everything we needed to be comfortable and then some. Everything in the house was purposeful and well thought out.

And the homemade cookies everyday were a lovely touch. We will certainly return.

My girlfriend and I have stayed in some of the finest hotels, including the Four Seasons, but it hasn't compared to a night at the Pine Bush House. From cleaniless, to decor, to the attentive service, everything was perfect. All the amenities were top notch, and there was nothing that was lacking. We stayed in the Zinfendale room and enjoyed the steam shower, and the Apple TV system. Barbara and Mark made us feel very much at home, Would definitely come back.

We stayed 6 nights here, 3 more than we had booked. If you fancy comfort, amazing sophistication of bathrooms, tv, computer etc., plus superb breakfasts the like you wouldn't enjoy anywhere else, you would come to Pine Bush which is a charming small town/village about 70 miles N of New York city. We initially booked as we were looking for accommodation near to relatives, but the care we enjoyed would persuade us to come again even if the relatives weren't in the locality.
The real reason I have written so effusively, is that my husband became ill, and Barbara and Mark who run the B&B offered us free use of a second bedroom. Where else would you get that consideration? I regard them as friends.
No, our relatives aren't Barbara and Mark

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to Pine Bush House Bed & Breakfast, a charming and romantic Victorian home built in 1904. The Inn's quiet elegance has long made it a favorite for honeymoons, anniversaries, and other special getaways. One of the innumerable ways in which we provide exemplary service to our guests is by anticipating their every need. In some cases, that need comes in the form of a request for a "permanent vacation." When this happens, generally we hear a long, contented sigh, followed by an "I wish I never had to leave." ... more   less
