“Full of Smiles”
Reviewed 16 July 2007

What a wonderful experience!

From the moment I was greeted at the door by Gene, I knew that this place was special. Gene made me feel at ease the moment I arrived as he gave me a tour of the home that he and Carmela have so lovingly put together. While touring the house, Gene provided historical insight into the home and its ancestors, the Caldwell family, for which the house is named.

My room was comfortable and every detail was thoughtfully provided for- from the way the bath towels were arranged, to the chocolate truffles before turning in for a good night sleep. And oh so clean and spotless in every area!

Gene was a great help in providing me with suggestions and directions to nearby restaurants, places of interest and ways of navigating this part of the country. His directions were spot on and easy to follow (and he gave the directions to me already typed out!). Another example of such thoughtfulness and thoroughness that I experienced in their home.

After coming back from dinner, it was a wonderful treat to sit on the front porch, watching the fireflies play amongst the beautiful grounds that Caldwell House graces.

For another smile, add breakfast in the dining room! We started out with an excellent brewed cup of coffee to which was added a wonderful peach tart/pastry, superb french toast, and delightful scones. A memorable way to start any day!

Fond memories were made here and I look forward to a return visit for more wonderful experiences that bring a smile.

Spent our 24th wedding anniversary at Caldwell House and had the best time. Always wanted to try a B & B but thought it would be like we were invading someone's home. Wanted our own bathroom and surprised my husband with a hot tub in the room! Once checked in Gene gave us a tour of the 4 bedrooms showing us what he and his wife Carmela have done to make it so beautiful. He also explained how we get a key to the front door and our room so we can come and go all we want. He asked if 9:00 AM was alright for breakfast, helped us with dinner suggestions along with directions. Caldwell is near Woodbury Common Outlet Stores, West Point, and great dining on shores of Hudson Valley. Check their website for many more fun things to do. Gene has the best directions to anywhere, forget Map Quest! Carmela made a wonderful breakfast of orange french toast, homemade muffins with fresh fruit. We would recommend staying at Caldwell House B & B to anyone and hope to return someday ourselves! **** 4 Star B & B

Came across this wonderful B&B while looking for accommodation in the West Point area of New York.

Caldwell House is a quiet and elegant resting place with beautifully appointed rooms. Magnificent linens and hand made coverlets adorn each bed.

Our superb breakfast consisted of chocolate chip scones, individual ramekins of baked peaches and toast and panettone french toast topped with fresh, home grown organic blueberries and strawberries served alongside a khahlua dipping sauce.

Our hosts, Gene and Carmela couldn't have been more gracious. Our only regret ~ we weren't there long enough!

We stayed here for four nights in October 2004 and enjoyed every aspect of our visit.

The innkeepers, Gene and Carmela, were really welcoming and helpful. They were not only happy to recommend places to eat, visit, hike and shop but also printed out directions for us, dug out rail timetables and generally did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The food was great. We had delicious fresh-cooked breakfast every day, and they even gave us a little pack of home-baked cookies and muffins for the journey when we left.

The house itself is very pretty (it's over 200 years old) and has been well looked-after. The good thing is that it it feels like a home rather than a museum. Our room was cosy, comfortable and clean with a good en-suite bathroom.

If you do stay here, check out Joey's Cafe in Washingtonville (5 mins drive away). We had some excellent home-cooked organic food there, and again the staff (in particular, Joey the proprietor) and customers were really friendly and welcoming.

Definitely recommended.
