“Caution at checkout”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2007

A pleasant stay in an area with terrific restaurants. Review your bill carefully at departure! My experience: the $150. deposit for one night, made with my reservation, was "overlooked" at checkout. Joanne, at the desk, explained that "they didn't list it properly".

We stayed in the Beekman Arms Inn for two nights in June 2007, we had a room on the 3rd floor with a queen size bed and private bath. If you are looking for authentic old than the Beekman Arms is the place for you. We loved the tavern and we did eat in the restaurant and the food was wonderful. The only thing we were unhappy with was the breakfast - it was pitiful to say the least. They could have at the minimum put out a danish or crossiant. Other than that Rhinebeck is a lovely town.

  • Liked — That this Inn was truely old - not redone to look old.
  • Disliked — The breakfast.

Just returned from a night at the Beekman Arms which was recommended by a friend. What a mistake! If you are taller than 5'10-definitely this is not for you. It may be the oldest operating Inn in the country and it looks it. Low ceilings, unbearably noisy inside and out if you are not a sound sleeper, old, creaky stairs and floors,soft, uncomfortable beds, and sparse, underwhelming continental breakfast. I like historic and charm. This is not. I read the mixed reviews on the site, but trusted the friend.
The Inn has many buildings but we were not told the differences even though we asked. They seem to think their old Inn has charm. The best bet is their Delameter Inn on the next block. I found after the fact that the friend actually stayed in that spot. If you've never been, you have a tough time knowing which of their accomodations to choose and the person I spoke with did not explain well at all. Don't settle for the main Inn -I feel totally ripped off!
On the positive side, Rhinebeck is a nice, quaint village and we had a very nice dinner at Terrapin.

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.

On a whim we decided to drive upstate with absolutely no hotel reservations or even a city we wanted to stay in, in mind. The only thing we were going on, was that we wanted to eat dinner at Terrapin, a nouveau american restaurant in Rhinebeck. When we arrived in Rhinebeck we saw the Beekman Arms located centrally in the downtown area. After a few minutes of driving around to see if there were any other hotels in the area, we called Beekman Arms and luckily for us, they had a room available for an affordable price. We were given a room in the Gables building located in the Delameter Inn property. As an fyi, the Beekman Arms owns much of the property in the downtown area. We were given our keys and then sent three blocks down where we would be staying. The room was charming enough, with a four poster bed, a sitting area and a large enough bathroom. The "Gables" housed five rooms within the building. On the ground floor there was a sitting room and a sun room which anyone could use. Our room was located upstairs on the second floor. The strangest aspect of the room was the decanter about a quarter full of brandy along with two glasses, something we've never seen before. We took a sip, not exactly sure what year it's from, but the sip was all we needed (it wasn't exactly top shelf), nor did we know how long it had been there. The room as I said was charming, complete with sloping floors, but we didn't have a marble to test this theory. Our stay there was quiet and was just what we were looking for, given we were looking for a place close to Terrapin, which was a delicious dinner and was located right across the street. If you're in search for an affordable, yet comfortable night away, the Beekman Arms is a good choice.

Rhinebeck I'm sure is a lovely town and when I was surprised with a trip to a bed and breakfast I felt for sure I was in for some charm away from the hustle and bustle. And while the people were friendly and the room was spacious, there was little charm and the dry heat created havoc with my nasal passages. Pleasantly there was cable television in the room and the room was warm though we were promised a fireplace and none was available(!) Overall I thought the property was just ok and the breakfast was more than adequate (large selections of cereal, fruit, pastries.) I suggest saving a trip to Rhinebeck until the spring and fall but definitely visit the CIA!

On October 15 and 16, 2006 I stayed at the Beekman Arms in Rhinebeck, NY. My room was in the Carriage House, which is down the block from the main building that contains the Traphagen restaurant. The Beekman Arms is conveniently located on the main street of Rhinebeck, within easy walking distance of the town’s many shops and restaurants. The room rate was $150 a night.
The Carriage House is set back from the road, so it’s very quiet. Across the way is a building where breakfast is served and guests check out. Breakfast included coffee, tea, juice, muffins, cereal, etc.
My Carriage House room was spacious. A split-level room, the lower portion contained a chair, couch and television. The upper level, separated by a railing, had king-size bed, chair and desk. The bathroom was behind the bedroom area. The sink was in a small hallway area with a bureau, rack to hang your clothes, full-length mirror and mini-refrigerator. The light in the bathroom got gradually brighter, so that if one needed to get up in the middle of the night, one wouldn’t be blinded by the light.
Rhinebeck is a nice place to visit for a long weekend, particularly in the Fall. I visited the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome to see its last air show of the season and took the open cockpit bi-plane ride ($50) and the view of the trees with their autumn colors was breathtaking. Also nice was the tour of Wilderstein, a Victorian house owned by the Suckley family. The views from the backyard are beautiful in the Fall.
Hyde Park is a short ride from Rhinebeck. Highly recommended is a visit to the Culinary Institute of America—not just to eat at one of the school’s five restaurants but also to take in the spectacular views. The views alone are worth the trip.
