To put it directly, we loved Bernetta's Place. Our room was spacious...kitchen, living room, bedroom. Two couches in the living room, and a lounge in the bedroom, so there was plenty of room to spread out. Very comfortable. There is a very nice pool plus hot tub outside, all of which are surrounded by attractive tall grasses and flowers. (My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed both.) Bernetta has done a great job of making the entire facility look attractive and well-thought out. She's an incredibly friendly host, and a great cook. Her breakfasts were nourishing and tasty. And I for one liked that one breakfast wasn't the latest health-food fad...it was pancakes with strawberries. Yum. (Though I concede that the dish before the pancakes was fresh fruit topped with yogurt...but in spite of it being healthy, it was also delicious.) But what made the place such a delight is that the grounds are maybe 2 acres or so, and it's all fenced in, so our dogs were able to go off-leash and just run and explore to their heart's content with no threat of escaping. And believe me, they LOVED running around, meeting the other dogs staying there, getting petted by other people staying there, tromping around the grasses, and generally just having a great time. Finally, the surrounding area is very attractive with good places to hike and explore, and the New Paultz area is surprisingly blessed with a number of good restaurants. We HIGHLY recommend Bernetta's Place.
