“The Best B & B I ever stayed at”
Reviewed 29 September 2008

My wife and I have stayed at dozens of B & B's. This was the very best one, hands down. Caldwell has been named the Best B & B in the Hudson River Valley more than once. I can see why. The decor is authentic but not cluttered. The rooms are spotless and meticulously cleaned and kept up. You couldn't hope for a more delicious breakfast. (Carmela is an award-winning chef.) And the service? Gene & Carmela were helpful when you needed them to be, out-of-the-way when you needed them to be. They were enormously helpful with anything we needed ... and then they seemed to vanish when we needed privacy. They are as talented as they are kind. The house and the setting are gorgeous. And this area of the Hudson River Valley is one of the most beautiful in the State of New York. It was an unforgettable and [----]-near-perfect experience.

If you would like to experience a little bit of heaven, spend some time at the Caldwell House in Salisbury Mills, New York. The Caldwell House is a charming Bed and Breakfast near West Point and not far from Hyde Park, the home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Your hosts, Carmela Turco and Gene Sheridan, are the type of people that you feel you have known forever; and if you are an animal lover, their pet pooch Buffy will steal your heart. Our room was beautifully appointed with historically appropriate furnishings in this 200-year old home. The bed was very comfortable. There was nothing more fun than opening our door each morning and smelling the aroma of warm coffee and one of Carmela's delectable breakfast delights. Gene can help you plan a fun day of sightseeing, and he is a gourmet's delight as he can recommend a restaurant for whatever you might want for dinner complete with directions of exactly how to get there. We had such a good time, and we do hope that these Oklahomans will get another opportunity to revisit the Caldwell House.

My husband and I with our best friends just spent 3 wonderful nights at the Caldwell House. It was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. What a wonderful first start!
First of all this 200 year old house was beautifully preserved and modernized and yet kept with the period of the house. My husband and I shared the Queen bedroom, the Trestle Room. This room was named after a nearby historic landmark. It was furnished with a rope style bed, which was very comfortable, and had a matching 1820 sheraton rope style burear. All of the bedrooms had their own private bath and shower. The entire house was beautifully furnished with antiques.
The house is run by Carmela Turco and Eugene Sheridan, a very nice and friendly married couple. Carmela went to culinary school after retiring from teaching and besides being a fabulous cook, even has her own cookbook, which she will sell.
We had a variety of different delicious homemade breakfast items each morning and homemade cookies all during the day for snacking.
We spent one morning at the dining table in conversation with this lovely couple. It seemed we had known them for years. They have a variety of pamplets on places to visit and eat.
I would certainly recommend this B & B to anyone lucky enough to get the opportunity to visit the area.

Great place! My fiance and I stayed there for the weekend as a celebration weekend right after we got engaged. The inn keepers were very nice and thoughtful - they even printed a special congratulations to us on their morning menu. The location is very peaceful, and the breakfast was tasty. There is also a lot of good food nearby. I'd recommend this place as a great weekend getaway.

Let me add another excellent review for Caldwell House. My wife and I stayed there (without the kids - Caldwell House is not for kids under 12) and had a wonderful time. We have gone up to Mohonk and other New York State attractions and wanted to find a place we could stop and spend the night en route. Sadly, there isn't much in the way of hotels between the Sheraton in Mahwah, NJ and the no-frills airport hotels at Stewart Airport in Newburgh. So we looked for a nice Bed-And-Breakfast and found this one near the Brotherhood WInery and the Arts Center.

The hosts Carlmela and Gene are very gracious the 200-year old house is charming, and the breakfasts are a delight - especially when they have scones that are perhaps the best that I have ever tasted.

Caldwell House has four guest rooms available. Each has a private bathroom, and television. The fanciest two room were already booked when we stayed but we hope to go back to try either of them. We are newcomers to the B& B experience but this one seems to set an example for the others.

  • Liked — Carmela and Gene who are the hosts
  • Disliked — A bit hard to find at night the first time.

My wife and I took the NJT train from NYC to Salisbury Mills Cornwall station. Our host, Gene, picked us up at the station and dropped us off after our stay was over @ no extra charge. The Caldwell house was so wonderfully decorated, down to every intricate detail, that just spending time at the house was enough of a retreat for us. The setting was beautiful and serene and our hosts Gene and Carmella were so warm it felt like we were a part of their family. And the breakfast was delicious! You could taste the love! Carmella made pastries that were available all day in the dining room. My wife and i needed a little midnight snack and satisfied our appetites with chocolate chip cookies and Irish soda cake. Everything was so clean and orderly, and the bathroom was immaculate!! Oh, and make sure to say hello to their dog, Buffy!

My husband and I decided to get away for the weekend. We wanted to see Storm king, West Point. and Pacem In Terris. We chose to stay at a Bed and Breakfast because it was close to everything. I would say we are hotel people and we had no idea what to expect. From the moment we arrived at the Caldwell House we felt so welcomed by the Inn Keepers Gene and Carmella. Our room was clean and perfect for our needs and the breakfast each morning was amazing. (Carmella even offers her secrets in a cookbook that you can purchase). But it was our conversations with Gene and Carmella and the other guests that made our stay so memorable. It was like going home...only better.

We highly recommend the Caldwell House!
