We recently went to Bard College to hear the opera at the Summerscape Festival, and decided to make a weekend of it. We chose to stay at the Olde Rhinebeck Inn, built in 1745, and lovingly restored by the innkeepers, Cindy and Jonna, who told us its history, dating back to Cindy's grandfather. The Inn has been beautifully furnished with wonderful antiques, which give it authenticity, warmth and charm, while providing all comforts and amenities. A delicious homemade gourmet breakfast is served at a large wooden table, where you meet the other guests and chat with the innkeepers.
The Inn is on a quiet street overlooking meadows, and with its own pond, near the center of charming Rhinebeck with its superb restaurants and myriad historic sites sprinkled in the breath-taking country side. We made a trip to Hyde Park and the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Home and Museum. It was an unforgettable weekend.
Do stay at the Old Rhinebeck Inn! We can't recommend it highly enough!!
