I've stayed at the Beekman Arms 2x's and had very different experiences during each visit.
First was when my sister was moving into her dorm at the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park - unfamiliar with the area, I relied on the Internet to locate a hotel and this inn was the only place I could find with a vacancy. On first glance, I was enraptured with the authentic colonial look & feel of the main building - the rustic, beamed lobby with its huge fireplace was welcoming on that cold January afternoon! We were shown to our room on the 2nd floor and while it was a bit shabby and dark, it was very clean and large, and the "Americana" theme somehow felt appropriate. All was fine until we were ready to sleep - our room was directly above the lobby and we heard every word and peal of laughter from the skiers who frequent the place and party in the lobby (directly off the bar area) until the early morning hours. Sometime after 2:30am, they dispersed and we were able to sleep - until 6:30am, when the lobby filled up again for the complimentary coffee! The lack of sleep, followed by moving my sister into her dorm and the 3-hour drive back home, made for the longest day of my life.
My second stay took place in November, when my sister graduated, and it was spectacular. It was just before Thanksgiving and well into the evening when we pulled into town, and seeing the entire village twinkling in the tiny white lights strung from every tree & building on the main road gave the place a feeling of serenity and peace, especialy since an unexpected wet snow was falling & clinging to the branches. We stayed in one of the newer courtyard building and the room was heavenly - large & pretty, with 2 very comfortable canopied queen beds, a lovely sitting area with complimentary sherry on the table & a working fireplace with actual logs, something you rarely find these days in inns. It was so cozy to sit before the fire with a glass of sherry, watching the snow fall outside the large bay window... We're planning a trip to the Boston/Salem area in the fall and we'll definitely choose the Beekman Arms as a 1/2 way point.
