Disappointed that the CIA is closed when you want to visit? Don't be! Hyde Park and it's nearby villages Rhinebeck and New Paltz boast several professionally owned and well established gourmet and fine dining restaurants. All of these restaurants support our local farms. Our Culinary Getaways offer one-hour Gourmand classes any day of the week.
Our four rooms have modern amenities with private, luxurious baths, cable TV, VCR (some with DVD) and wireless internet access. Our cozy fireplaces are just a light switch and you are romantically engulfed in warm heat and soft light. (Rates are based on double occupancy. Extra person in suites is $40 - $50 per night.)
Environmentally Astute: We make our own non-toxic cleaning solutions, purchase organic soaps for our bath, laundry, and dishwashing. We purchase Seventh Generation paper products. We even dry our wash on our laundry line. We are as organic as we can afford. Also vegetarian. We recycle and compost everything we can. We have a large garden that provides us with seasonal herbs, vegetables and fresh flowers.
Beautiful pond views, magnificent pine trees and a Christmas tree farm located on a forty acre estate provide year round beauty. The Inn was built in 1900 and is surrounded by ancient pines. Completely renovated with modern amenities, central air and heat. It is a tranquil property where one can stroll past a serene pond replete with ducks, great blue herons and turtles. Even (very large) carp keep the pond pristine year round.
