From the moment Miriam greeted us at the front door, to our final good bye 3 days later our stay at the Renwick Clifton was perfect. The 1812 mansion retained the original charm and beauty and elegance that you would expect from that period of time. The 4 course gourmet breakfast, cooked by Eric, was unique and spectacular everyday. Our breakfast table was set with the finest China and the food was served by Miriam. The back porch view of the Hudson was beautiful. Our stay was quiet and peaceful and this is one location we would plan to return. Our goal was to see an evening play in NYC and visit Ellis Island, taking the nearby Amtrack was the only way to travel. Miriam and Eric are a genuine, down to team that are easy to talk to and offered suggestions about what to do in the area. Complimentary wine and cheese, unlimited coffee and snacks were available 24 hours a day. On the day we left, Miriam and Eric were decorating the front of the mansion for fall, a display worthy of a magazine cover. We plan to return in near future.
