This was a fantastic experience! We desperately needed to get away from the stress of the city and spent a lovely, long weekend at this special B&B. The hosts are so warm. The space is very special, a renovated church with gorgeous rooms. Ours had original stained glass windows and overlooked the sweet patio where we spent a lot of time reading and enjoying the delicious breakfast the hosts made each morning. It's just a brief walk down to the river and adorable shops. We also appreciated the clawfoot bathtub we had. And we got great advice on where to eat, drink and shop: Brunette for great wines, Clove & Creek for unique house goods and ceramics, and Kingston Wine Shop.

What a wonderful, eclectic, charming place to stay! Actually in an old church, filled with art and antiques, the individual rooms are uniquely charming and there is a spacious common room and a lovely courtyard garden area for guest use. The location is walking distance to the Hudson River waterfront and a quaint area of town with restaurants, shops and a boating museum. We had three rooms for two nights each for a family wedding weekend and just loved our stay. Peter and Julie were great hosts, welcoming us and accommodating some special requests. Breakfast is continental style and the coffee was delicious! If you are looking for a special and unique place to stay in the Hudson Valley - this is it!

We spent two nights here recently. This is a great place to come, relax, and see the area. The hosts, Julie and Peter, are both wonderful people who make you feel welcome from the moment you step foot into the courtyard. The room was comfortable, eclectic, and like the whole place, had a really nice vibe. The courtyard is the perfect place to take your coffee in the morning, or a bottle of wine in the afternoon before heading out to dinner. The breakfasts were delicious, and there are some good restaurants within easy walking distance (steep hill alert if you are physically challenged). We will definitely be back.

I had such a nice stay at the Church Des Artistes Guest House this weekend. I was attending an event at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck and I love this guest house and will be back again. The owners are attentive and the space is just beautiful. I was unable to join them for meals as I was keeping early hours but they made sure I had coffee (even for my 6 am departures). I would love to go back in the summer (or any time less wet than this weekend) and enjoy a glass of wine in their gorgeous courtyard. I recommend this for a get away!

The grounds, the rooms, the kitchen, the special treatment,the attention to detail, the beautiful waterfront, the fabulous stockade district, the amazing art & music, what else could one want? Church des Artistes has all of the above, but all of that pales in comparison once you meet the owners/innkeepers. They are kind, genuine, and lovely people with an indescribable lovely energy around them, and their home. You will want to stay forever, I will be heading back very soon. Enjoy every moment, be sure to ask their advice for restaurants etc.

This guest house is like nothing I have stayed at before. My entire stay for two days was sheer delight. The bed was extremely comfortable , the hosts beyond charming and Kingston itself well worth the visit. Without more pictures it is difficult to properly describe and give credit to the interior of this converted church. In Europe we would say it is an eclectic mix of Victoriana/Napoleon III pictures and furniture blended with some stunning art work by the noted artist Julie Hedrick. Julia and her husband Peter (composer and pianist) make you feel so welcome you just want to move in an live with them. After breakfast on my final day I was treated to a rehearsal by Peter and a local contralto (?) singing some of Peter's own works. Really beautiful. I stayed in the library. A ground floor bedroom with queen sized bed with separate single and en-suite bathroom. With the exception of the mattress (which I suspect was a great deal more comfortable than its equivalent in the 19th century) I was transported back 150 years. Fabulous. If I have one criticism; it is that it was all a little cramped. Great for a night's stay with little luggage but I had rather a lot and there was no hanging cupboard. I look forward to the time that I can stay with Julie and Peter again.

One of the most comfortable stays with two great souls. Peter and Julie made me not want to leave Kingston. Clean, quiet, lived in and great beds. I slept like a baby. Good energy in this place and the neighborhood is walk-able, scenic and relaxing. Kingston is a great place.

My wife and I stayed at Church des Artistes for two nights in early July. The hosts, Julie and Peter were super nice and welcoming folks. If it's being offered, I highly recommend getting the breakfast as it's both delicious and worth the cost. Our room was cozy and did not have a TV which was a plus in our book. Given the fact that at first we considered staying at the Residence Inn and decided to take a chance with a guest house: we're happy that we did. You should too.

We have stayed here four times while visiting nearby family. It's a delightful, timeless setting. The owners have appointed the rooms with vintage furniture, art, family heirlooms and wonderful books. The white on white decor is Shabby Chic style. Linens are perfectly pressed and towels are as plush as you'd find in five star hotels. We have enjoyed conversations with artists/ proprietors Julie and Peter. Once we were lucky enough to be in range for a house concert. You'll understand why the breakfast is extra when you see it. They serve a home cooked gourmet meal with local ingredients. ( Not your typical muffin basket buffet.) Breakfast can be enjoyed in their garden or the attractive country kitchen filled with antique ceramics. We'll be back next year!

I had a terrific time and was lucky enough to have a downstairs bedroom, the library. The books in there are old and quite musty so had allergy problems associated with that. The courtyard was a very nice place to sit and enjoyed watching a bird nesting. The kitchen was a great place for my family to gather and room for other additional family to sit and have coffee. That was provided only one day. I wish I had received information about what there is to do and where to eat prior to arrival. Not recommended for children or elderly if you have an upstairs room as all the bathrooms are downstairs and they are long and steep.
