About This Listing
This room has a queen sized bed over-looking the garden with a shared bathroom. It's the most sound proof room in the house, so if you have any concerns about the late night train whistle, you would have no worries here.
Suminski Innski is a three-storied, historic house with a wrap- around porch overlooking the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. Parquet floors, crystal chandeliers, marble fireplaces, ornate moldings. Tons of art from local painters and photographers. Walking distance (10 minutes) to the village's 9 different eateries, bars, and bakery. There are plenty of beautiful hikes to be had around the area. On-site catering is available for parties of up to 50 people. The entire house can be rented for $1200 a night. Van shuttle service and tours available. Tivoli is halfway between the Rhinecliff and Hudson Amtrak stations, a twenty minute drive in either direction. The house has been 99% restored over the last decade (starting in 2003) after being largely abandoned from the fifties through the nineties. It was originally built by an ocean ship captain who settled on the shore here and operated a ferry service for all the East West commerce in the area which ran until the fifties but when the bridges were built over the Hudson, the traffic moved there and Tivoli became a ghost town until it's recent revival.
A 25% discount is extended to all teachers, social workers, veterans, aide workers, care givers, farmers, journalists, and bikini models.
The only house rules are to be mindful of other guests and to think of the place as your own home, except you don't have to do the dishes. It is an old house, and in a neighborhood, so try not to be too loud after dark
Tim welcomed us on our arrival and gave us a choice of rooms. We loved Room #1, my granddaughter and I had a great sleep and neither ever heard a train. Breakfast was abundant, delicious food and breads. There were families there with small children, language was a barrier so we did not visit with one another as we might have, and since we had a full day ahead of us, we didn't stay around to engage. It was just as the description said it would be, we were very contented guests and would look forward to returning. Thanks, Tim
I can warmly recommend staying at the Suminski Innski! First of all, the decor is amazing: old school and eclectic, full of beauty and quirky stories, humorous and full of atmosphere. The rooms are comfortable - we stayed in two different rooms, as we visited during a wedding feast, and both were good. The beds are very tall and wide - and comfy. It feels clean and fresh. We loved the big porch and the view over the river. And our daughter played in the garden and explored all the odd little things. Tim and his staff were just all friendliness, and they were eager to chat and give advice about the area. Also, a really nice breakfast, and the staff didn´t mind making a special serving for our baby son. Generally it all feels like you´re being invited to stay with queen of romance and mystery, who just happens to be your eccentric great grandmother, dressed in jewels and fur. In the evening she comes out from the shadows and plays the piano in the living room. If you ever liked Wuthering Heights, don´t miss the Suminski Innski!
Nice setting right on the Hudson River. The bed was very comfortable; I slept well. Even though the trains were certainly noticeable during waking hours, they didn't disturb my sleep. The breakfast was large and was EXCELLENT; I didn't feel hungry the rest of the day. Folks were friendly. Very enjoyable stay.
Wow. Interesting place.
The Suminski Innski is a big, old rambling house that is in a state of genteel decay. The host, Tim, is personable and gracious but this is a sort of odd cross between a B and B and Mrs. Haversham's house.
The room was spacious and attractive but there are some details that need attention.
The town of Tivoli is just up the hill. It is a historic and charming village with a couple of restaurants and a bar. A good jumping off point for Bard College or Rhinebeck.
Would I go back? Yes, but it is a shame it is less than perfect. These are organizational issues.
Again, Tim is a great host. The breakfast was really good, and the staff personable and genuinely interested.
