Last minute reservation which turned out to be an enjoyable experience. Small but thoughtfully appointed room. Breakfast was delicious. Hosts were warm and engaging. Wonderful place to stay in the Saugerties area, and we hope to be back sometime in the future.

This was our first bed and breakfast and it far exceeded our expectations. The house and room had a warm and quaint ambiance with modern amenities. The grounds were beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. The menu had plenty to choose from. Our biggest regret was that we couldn't stay longer than one night.

I can not say enough good things about this place. I stayed at the rental unit over the summer, and I was completely blown away by how nice of a property it is.

We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed staying at the Esopus Creek Cottage during your time in Saugerties at the HITS show. Yes, the property is ideal for guests with dogs, and we also welcome pets at Smythe House proper as well. We can't help ourselves, we just love animals as much as we love humans. LOL. Thanks...

Justine and David welcomed us and were there and very accessable. Breakfast was beautifully presented and we enjoyed conversing with our hosts and fellow guests. Justine recommended a yoga studio and a great restaurant.
