Truly horrible. The house is disgusting, dirty, sticky and covered in cobwebs. The owners are not there and really don’t care about this place and are not there. It was so gross. We couldn’t wait to get out of there. Yuck!

The photos depict a charming historic home on the water. Upon our arrival we were met with a rundown inn in need of major renovations. The excellent Trip Advisor decal on the inner vestibule was dated 2015 so I was hopeful that the interior was in better condition. The reality is that not only was this place a "gem in the raw" but it was filthy. The windowsills were black with soot, the bathroom was dirty, the carpets stained, the screened in porch affording a view of the water was, not only dirty, but a safety hazard as the cable for the TV was in plain sight and stuck out of the window which had to remain open to accommodate the shoddy installation. The Inn keeper, Mike, was very helpful and prepared a good breakfast of muffins, eggs, and fresh fruit. But the peeling wallpaper, water-stained ceilings, cracked tiles and filthy floors can't negate the simple fact that we were deceived into believing we would be spending time in a beautiful old home. To be fair, the bed linens were clean and fresh and the mattress firm. However, booking the most expensive room with a view was a total waste of our money.

We stayed here with another couple for 2 nights while we were in the area visiting West Point and Hyde Park. The location in the historic district of Newburgh and the views of the Hudson River were great. However, the building and furnishings need major renovation. The portable air conditioning units were duct taped to the windows where they were vented but didn't hold so insects came into the room. The bathrooms need major work. The dark wood winding staircase needs to have better lighting because you could easily fall down carrying luggage. There are ceiling stains from multiple leaks. Wallpaper is peeling off of many walls. The caretaker Mike was wonderful. He prepared two delicious breakfasts for us. He was very attentive to our needs and requests. We told him our pillows were very hard and uncomfortable and immediately provided new ones for the second night. This Victorian home could be restored beautifully but it would most likely cost upwards of $150-200K. I would probably not recommend this place unless it gets serious rehab. It's costly for what you get.

We were shocked at the condition of this property given the price we paid ($175 a night), The carpets were old and filthy, there were cobwebs on the furniture, and the whole place was shabby and in general disrepair. One example: the inside of our glass-paned bedroom door someone had pinned up some quilt scraps for privacy, but the fabric had large stains on it. The back rooms all have views of the beautiful Hudson River but that view was partially blocked, at least in the room we stayed in (called “Bridge View”), by a window air conditioner, unnecessary curtains hung on a flimsy tension rod, and dirty windows. Some of the other bedrooms had prettier, unobstructed views so if a view is important to you consider that when selecting a room here. The best thing about this place is the sole employee, Mike, who lives on the premises and is apparently responsible for doing everything including greeting guests, cleaning the rooms, cooking breakfast, and fixing/maintaining the property. Mike is a hardworking guy and he served a delicious breakfast, but this is just WAY too much for one person to do. The owners don’t identify themselves on the website or in the “welcome” and “thank you” pre- and post-stay emails I received (the signature line was simply the address of the B&B), which I think is telling. The owners really should spend some time living in their property and seeing it from the perspective of their guests. Or lower their prices so that guests are not misled about what they are getting when they make a reservation to stay here. Bottom line – the house looks nice from the outside but don’t expect luxury accommodations inside.

This B&B is in a fabulous old house on an historic street of beautiful houses. The rooms are quaint and authentic, many with a stunning view of the grand Hudson River. The caretaker is dedicated to guests' comfort, and cooks a generous, delicious big breakfast to order. An amazing deal for the price!!
