Decided on a last minute 2-night getaway with the wife to NY, somewhere along the Hudson River. Stumbled upon WhistleWood when looking online for places to stay and they had one room left so we went ahead with it and we are so glad we did! Our stay was fantastic, very laid back and relaxing which is exactly what we are looking for. We stayed in the Sunset room which is one of the 3 rooms in the separate carriage house. The room was cozy, very clean, and had a sliding glass door out to a private patio. The carriage house also has a common kitchen available for use by the guests which was nice.
Maggie (the owner) was a sweetheart and was quick to make us feel at home. She provided amazing snacks and refreshments at the dessert table each night and the breakfast each morning was freshly made and fantastic. The farm fresh eggs were simply the best eggs I've ever had and Maggie will prepare them to your liking along with fresh pictures herbs and vegetables. Maggie was also great in offering information about the local area for attractions, wineries, or where to grab lunch/dinner.
The B&B was located only a few minutes from downtown Rhinebeck off a nice quiet road and was easy to find. There was a lot to see and do nearby to keep busy if we wanted but just relaxing at B&B was equally enjoyable. All in all it was a great stay and we definitely look forward to coming back!
