Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast
CH June-21.jpg

This New York inn, built while Thomas Jefferson was President and opened the same year as the USMA at West Point, offers the architectural splendor of that era while tastefully and discretely incorporating all the modern conveniences that today's traveler seeks. We have expanded to include 2 new building - the former Caldwell Carriage House and the Caldwell Barn. Each as been lovingly restored. We've attempted to save as much of the original look and feel while, at the same time, incorporating modern amenities and technology.
Our guests will find the original wide planked wooden floors, high ceilings with their crown molding, large, beautifully designed fireplaces that the first owners of the home used and enjoyed. Over the years, the Inn has been meticulously cared for and updated to add all the comforts of a modern home without doing anything to harm its original charm.
Each room has an en-suite bathroom - all with showers and several with oversized Jacuzzi tubs. Large "Smart" HDTVs, strong Wi-Fi signal, extremely comfortable King and Queen sized beds, in-room Climate Control settings, and luxury amenities welcome each guest. Watch a Netflix or Hulu+ movie or enjoy a delicious bottle of wine in front of a fireplace that many of the rooms have. Sit on the original wrap around front porch or take a stroll across the street to watch the Moodna Creek wander its way toward the Hudson River. Stroll the grounds in the warm weather months and "smell the roses.”
After a blissful night's sleep, awake to the smell of Dena's delicious three-course breakfast. The menu changes daily and all special requests are honored (just give us advanced notice so we have the freshest of ingredients on hand).
Our multi-award winning Bed and Breakfast awaits you and its owners, Dena and John, look forward to providing you with a stay you will remember for a long time to come.
