We chose this B & B because they allowed us to bring our dog. I didn't expect it to be so pretty and so well thought out. The innkeepers tried to provide everything that a guest could want and were very good at it. There was even a plate of chocolates from a local chocolate maker in the room to... More

It is a mystery to us why so many lodging properties seem to prohibit guests with pets and children, but at Smythe House we welcome all guests warmly to our home and including those with pets or children, we always have and always will. We feel and experience that the home is large enough and rooms private enough for each... More

We visited Saugerties for the first time in August 2015. This is strange as we are both born and raised in New York. We rented the Esopus Suite which is on the Esopus creek. The accommodations were fantastic, very clean and well maintained. There is access to the creek from the small dock in the back yard. There are canoes,... More

We stayed at the Barclay Heights B&B as a long weekend "stay-cation". Beautiful historic home with a great location in Saugerties (which has become a really hip little town by the way!). The owners are kind and welcoming, both are professional chefs and the breakfast was great. The only thing I was surprised by was that some of the rooms... More

David's culinary skills made for the most fabulous breakfasts where our table faced the lovely mountains and gorgeous fall foliage. Justine couldn't have been a better hostess! We stayed in the Violet Room with four poster bed and large bathroom with elegant shower and a jacuzzi.
