We are located 75 minutes north of New York City in the great Hudson River Valley. Are you ready to unplug and get away? Why not check availability now?

A one night stay that was very memorable. Bill sat with me at breakfast and I couldn’t get enough of his stories. What an accomplished and fascinating man! Maria does such a great job ensuring that your stay is “sweet.” Thank you Bykenhulle House.

We so enjoyed our stay at Bykenhulle House! Every aspect of the overnight visit was top notch. We were warmly greeted by Innkeeper Maria, who gave us a house tour and showed us to our lovely room. We also met the homeowner Bill and enjoyed a great conversation with him on Friday evening in the beautiful living room. Our room, the Valerie Ann, was wonderfully appointed, with gorgeous four poster bed (amazing bedsheets too) and fabulous dual shower. Breakfast on Saturday was delicious too. We actually hated to leave this little bit of heaven!

My wife and I are frequent travelers, and most often seek B&B's or small hotels. This one is near the top of our list for overall performance, certainly at the top for value. Maria was very accommodative to our travel schedule. The room was clean, spacious, quiet, and nicely furnished. The queen bed was comfortable. WIFi was super high speed - an unexpected treat. Breakfast was excellent in elegant surroundings and tailored to our diet preferences. A stroll through the well-groomed grounds was fun. We will definitely return. It was nice to chat with William.

This is our third visit to the House and the third room (Florence Marie) we’ve stayed in, my favorite thus far!  John’s is the William Francis.  We both agree the fireplace is a ‘must have’ in the room.  We came up this time for our half-year anniversary - 2 ½ actually and still honeymooning I guess.  This place is the perfect place for us.  The charm of this old house is so comforting.  The bed was absolutely wonderful with softest sheets, but a good firm mattress.  Every time we come up, I can’t wait to come back!

We had a wonderful stay at the Bykenhulle. The house is beautiful and the grounds are perfectly manicured. If you get a chance stop by and talk to the host who is an inspirational pioneer in the digital industry. The breakfast was great! Thank you!

So often when you see something ‘online’ and when you arrive it’s not quite the same.  We know we were ‘home’ as we approached and our breath was taken away at the beauty of this special place.  We were met by Bill, who you fall in love with immediately, as well as Melissa, the exuberant hostess. We settled into our very comfortable rooms and the relaxing atmosphere.  Thank you for sharing this beautiful property so others can enjoy it as much as you do. From the first impression, through breakfast and (sadly) leaving, our experience couldn’t have been better.  May you have continued blessings in showing your slice of heaven.
