We are required by the county and NY State to charge tax which we will collect when you arrive via check or cash. In addition to complimentary organic coffee and teas we are happy to prepare a special locally sourced home cooked breakfast for fifteen dollars per guest. On nice days we serve breakfast in the garden and in inclement weather guests gather around the farm table in the kitchen for a relaxing gourmet breakfast.
Interaction with Guests
We usually make a point to be home to greet our guests and get them settled in their rooms and from then on they are on their own to come and go as they please. While we are happy to share our passion for the area with guests and hear about their discoveries we also respect those that wish to come for retreat and privacy. They are always welcome to knock on our studio door if they need anything or call us if we are not at home.
We could wax poetic about this: While we are just up the hill from the marinas, restaurants, galleries and shops of the historic Rondout district of Kingston we are also a mile from Kingston Point Beach on the Hudson and wonderful rail trails and hiking/cycling areas. The neighborhood is a unique blend of 1800's and 1900's architecture, sea captains homes on one block and row houses on the next.
No smoking indoors, smoking permitted in the courtyard. While pets are welcome we ask you not to leave them alone for extended periods when there are other guests in adjoining rooms. If they are shedders we require an additional $15 to the cleaning fee per visit.
