Journey Inn Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 6 Hyde Park B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

My fiancé and I stayed here over a weekend because of its close proximity to the Vanderbilt Mansion (within walking distance), FDR Home and Culinary Institute.
Valerie (the innkeeper) is as friendly and accommodating as they come and does everything she can to make your stay a great one. You can tell she really enjoys what she does.
We stayed in the Kyoto Room which was very clean and nicely decorated. The main area downstairs is also very nice - hot tea and snacks are available throughout the day.
The breakfasts were very good as well. I would highly recommend this place for your next visit to the area.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled as a couple

Thank you Aaron - it was so nice meeting you and your fiance and hosting your anniversary weekend away. I am so happy that you were able to walk the Vanderbilt grounds on a beautiful snowy day and seeing the amazing ice covered Hudson! We really do appreciate your taking the time to offer such a nice review and recommend our Inn to others - we are pleased that you felt at home in our Kyoto room and our common areas downstairs - and I do love to know that you enjoyed our breakfasts - a particular source of pride. Best of everything you to guys - and we hope to see you again.

We planned to stay one night and have dinner at one of the CIA restaurants, conveniently located about a mile down the road. When the weather prediction called for a day of snow, we changed our plans and stayed a second night. How beautiful to spend a wintry day inside at this very cozy and comfortable B and B. Our room was beautiful and the two breakfasts were outstanding. How great to awaken to the aromas of Val's freshly baked muffins! And those pumpkin pancakes? Divine. The Inn is directly across from the entrance to the Vanderbilt Mansion. This is a wonderful place to stay and build a weekend around visits to the FDR Library and Museum and good eating at the CIA restaurants.

What a wonderful holiday gift to receive - thank you so much for your review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. It was so nice for us to see you enjoying the peacefulness of the Inn on a snowy day - we are so happy you made yourself at home - it is our goal to make everyone feel at home here. We love when we offer a place to just hang around, read, nap - as much as we like being the perfect location for so many activities for our guests. And we hope your floors looked fabulous when you got home! Thank you!

We stayed here with friends Veterans day weekend and had a very pleasant stay. We stayed in the Mombasa room and it was very comfortable and ultra super clean!!! Valerie runs the inn and is the perfect host. Breakfasts were very tasty and very filling. There is a 24 hour coffee bar in the common area and home baked cookies are available in the afternoon along with little dishes of candy placed around the common areas. The inn is directly across the street from the Vanderbilt mansion, so close that you can easily walk in and enjoy the grounds. We will be going back in the future to enjoy more of the mansions along the Hudson River. Thanks for a nice stay!

It was such a pleasure to celebrate your "birthday" weekend. So glad we were able to provide a venue for you to dine on cake and champagne with your friends. We very much enjoy offering a comfortable space for our guests to feel at home. We are looking forward to you coming back and visiting the mansions "in season". Glad you were able to visit the Vanderbilt grounds and thanks for sharing the amazing closeness of the estate, the views of the Hudson, and the beautiful gardens. You guys were the perfect guests! Thank you!!

After a long flight from Florida we needed a getaway spot like the Hudson Valley and Journey Inn.

Immediately upon arrival Christine met us at the front door and welcomed us in. After a brief tour we settled in our Roosevelt Suite. Ample space, lovely appointments. Breakfast the next, and every morning (we stayed four nights) was just perfect. The owner Valerie was positively fantastic - and we were fortunate to meet her parents!

Housekeeper Carol was lovely and inviting.

We will definitely return to Journey Inn!

My aunt and I stayed in the Roosevelt Room over Rhinebeck weekend last month. The house was lovely, and the room was darling. We were up and out the door before breakfast every day but Saturday; the pumpkin waffles and sausage on Saturday were delicious. The location was perfect, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Thank you, thank you, and thank you. So nice having both of you at the Inn- we so enjoy seeing all the folks who attend the Sheep & Wool festival - we love the passion and endurance!! So glad that we added to your fun and enjoyment - I seem to remember that you took some natural wool dying classes and were off everyday to get the most out of the festival. Glad our pumpkin waffles got in there at least one morning!

The owner (Val) is friendly and exceptionally helpful, the B&B is clean and comfortable, it is located across the road from the Vanderbilt Mansion and just a hop to FDR's place and the American Culinary Institute... also about 40 minutes from West Point. What stopped this from getting the excellent review was the breakfasts. Though unique, everyone was to eat at exactly 8:30 around a table with 10-12 others and with only limited selection based on the theme for that day. There needed to be bread or toast with jams etc., and a wide range of cereals, or even some cheese or hard-boiled eggs, for people whose schedule did not match the hosts, or for individuals who did not share the same desire for the culinary fare offered. Val was caught a bit off guard when five of the guests were vegetarian... and other offerings would help fill the void. All in all, though, a good experience.

Room Tip: Each room tends to have a theme... so check it out before booking to ensure you are comfortable with...

We really appreciate your taking the time to offer such a nice review. We do know that our family-style breakfasts are not for everybody – which is why we make sure that all our guests know before they book how we serve breakfast – and ask them if they are comfortable with that arrangement before we finalize the reservation. And we happily cater to all dietary preferences such as vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free, even those with restrictions due to diabetes, crohn’s, or celiac disease for example, plus any allergies, and other restrictions such as kosher and halal. We ask all our guests upon booking and again when they arrive if they have any dietary restrictions or allergies – and we prepare our meals to meet those requests. On rare occasions guests just do not tell us – as was the case when you were here. We were already accommodating two vegetarians, but there were a few guests who for whatever reason didn't tell us until we were serving the entrée – those things happen – which is why we always serve any meat as a side and never in the main meal. In addition, we do offer several types of cereal including homemade granola and gluten free options for those preferring a lighter meal or who want to supplement their meal with more food. Thank you so much for your suggestions – we always appreciate the feedback.

Eight of us had a wonderful family get-together at the inn this past weekend, Nov. 1-3. The inn is beautiful, comfortable, and spacious. The guest rooms (we occupied Mombasa, Tuscany, the English Suite, and Vanderbilt Suite) were immaculate, well-appointed, and cozy. And downstairs, there were two large, comfortable rooms in which to sit and visit. Valerie, the innkeeper, is immediately warm and welcoming, and, as others have written, shows a genuine concern for--and interest in--her guests. She is full of accurate information about things to do and places to eat in the area. Each of her recommendations--walks to take on the Vanderbilt estate (right across from the inn), restaurants, a local deli--were right on target for our group. From the moment we entered Journey Inn to the moment we left, we felt entirely at home and extremely well taken care of.

Nothing pleases us more than helping to make a special occasion even more special. We loved hosting your family reunion - and offering our suggestions about what to do and where to eat dinner. You were such a fun group and clearly love seeing with each other and spending time together. We wanted our home to be your home and are so glad that we met your expectations. Isn't that walk at the Vanderbilt just amazing - I encourage all our guest to walk those amazing grounds - it is hard to describe how beautiful they are, you just need to go! We can't thank you enough for taking the time to write this review - it means so much to us that you had such a lovely stay.
