Hi Graceful, Yes, I live close-by. I don't think the Rhinecliff Hotel is open yet. I work in Rhinebeck. I have lived here all my life. How can I help you? Ladeebug

Actually, The Rhinecliff Hotel is open. I believe it opened last month. I don't know much about the area at all but the hotel sounded lovely and we were able to get a room right on the river and it's brand new. They said it's only 2 miles from the town of Rhinebeck. It sounds like there are a lot of great things to do and see up there. We like to walk, hike, bike, and would love to rent a canoe or kayak. Do you know anything about Innsfree Park?

Graceful-and don't forget to check out the old Hudson Valley estates while you are in the area as well as Olana, Frederic Church's former mansion.

Graceful, I think they just got their Certificate of Occupancy a few days ago, my husband read it in the newspaper. I would Just call & make sure. I don't know much about Innsfree Garden. I think it is in Millbrook. There are many areas in Ulster, Dutchess & Columbia Counties that are worth seeing. Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie has lovely grounds for walking and an equally beautiful Garden. The house is open for tours, but it's no big deal. The best time to see the Estates & Mansions is during the Holidays. They decorate with Victorian themes and the people dress up in period costumes from that time in history. That is when I enjoy them the best, it depends what you like. There are several in the area along the River. Bash Bish Falls is up on the border of Mass & NY in the NE corner of the County. You can hike there and picnic. You also have the Berkshires & The Catskills to explore, as well as the Hudson River and several Lakes to kayak. Kaaterskill Falls is lovely and you can go Tubing along the Esopus Creek in Ulster County. There is alot to do here. Just let me know if I can direct you to anythhing. Just In case, there are a few other B&Bs & Motels I could give you numbers for if you can't saty at the RH. Just Let me know. LB

Thank-you for the information....so much to do and so little time (-: I am sure we will have to come back again. As far as the Rhinecliff Hotel is concerned, we already received confirmation that we are booked. I don't think that they would do that if they were not opened yet do you?

What you don't say, David Archer, is that you're the firm doing the marketing and promotion for this hotel aren't you?....Hmmmmm....A little biased?

Smile The Rhinecliff Hotel

That's no problem...we did go to the Rhinecliff Hotel back in August and had a lovely two days. The hotel is clean, charming and the staff was helpful and delightful. The only thing I was a bit surprised about was how close it was to the train and the photos on the website of course did not show the beautiful train tressel (lol).

Anyway, it was all fine and we had a wonderful time on our stay. The breakfast was perfect and when we did go, the restaurant was not yet open, so we may have to go back just to try it

We absolutely loved the area and the trip exceeded my expectations
