Le Petit Chateau Inn
Ranked #4 of 6 Hyde Park B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Not worth the price for a simple farm house. Linens/towels are dated and worn. Quiet, as we were the only guests. The culinary experience was good but again not worth anywhere near the price. I feel more than a little used paying over $800 for two nights, breakfast and dinner for two.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

My mom and I stayed here when visiting the CIA, and had a great time. Valerie, the owner, was especially kind and accommodating of our requests (early breakfast, particular food items), and even offered to give us a lift to our class. She made us feel very welcome--like we were visiting a friend!

Aside from the trailer park decor and the sump pump that went thump - thump- thump all night long - it was overpriced and under heated . So my advice is try another location. The only advantage is proximity to the Culinary Institute of America but you're better off at a budget motel. (I admit the breakfast buns were delicious).

Goodness trailer decor! Well in the business of hospitality, whether it be restaurants or lodging, one has learned that you simply can't please everyone. The inn is quite lovely and it is warm and charming. We always show the guests how to regulate the thermostats to their comfort.

all the rooms upstairs have cozy working fireplaces that are EXTREMELY warm. You simply have to turn them on.

We thank you for your constructive comments.

My boyfriend and I stayed here during the fall for one night. It's a lovely house and in a great location for seeing the sites of Hyde Park. For $200+ a night after taxes though, it didn't seem worth it in our opinion.
Pros:
-Breakfast was fantastic (cook from the CIA)
-Rooms were comfortable
-Host was helpful
Cons:
-You get the feeling that she's just trying to make money off of you and ask you to pay with a check because of the additional fees. (For $207 a night, maybe concentrate on getting more business and less on your few guests using checks to pay).
-For the image she tries to convey of a real French home with luxuries, the inn skimps on some things (hand soap was like water, one-ply t-paper)
-Lack of professionalism when the host is talking with her accountant and staff about bills and such right next to you in the kitchen.

Lovely, charming B&B. secluded and comfortable. Greatly located right across the street from the CIA! Perfect ! And very close to the town of rhinebeck & many historic landmarks. The breakfast was cooked & served by a former CIA student & chef. Delicious! If you want a sweet romantic getaway, this is it! Valerie, the owner, is sweet, charming and very accommodating. All in all, a great experience!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the inn. I have always though Hyde park is centrally located to wonderful restaurants and sights! The Walkway across the Hudson is a mere three miles, FDR's libray one mile, Vanderbilt, three miles. Even to visit other villages, most are simply twenty minutes. And the wineries Oh la la!

Merci

This was my secon stay at Le Petit Chateau and as the first one, it did not disappoint. In an ideal location for visiting Culinary Institute of America, less than .5 miles away, it provides such treats as breakfast cooked by a CIA trained chef and a generous library that offers books on wine and cooking. Comfortable rooms with fireplace and bathroom amenities like L'Occitane hair products complete the setting for a wonderful vacation.

Thank you noticing our french shampoo! Really, L'Occitane is one of the best in the industry & I truly love their Provence products. Our chefs are professionals and strive to create a hearty farm to table breakfast every morning. I think one of the fun aspects of staying at Le Petit Chateau, is that you can actually interact with them in our open kitchen.

Merci

My husband is an Alumni at the Culinary Institute of America. Le Petit Chateau is less than 1 mile away. We have stayed here 4 times & have been happy each time. The rooms are clean & decorated beautifully. There is wine and cheese available when we arrive. A delicious breakfast is served each morning. Valerie is a wonderful hostess & always available for any questions. I highly recommend it!!
