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. Canoes, kayaks, and bicycles are available to guests for use, but there are plenty of beautiful hikes to be had as well. 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.
Another great stay at the Suminski. I arrived Sunday after two nights of family-wedding-induced-lack-of-sleep, slipped into my extremely comfortable and warm bed with down pillows and slept for a rare 11-ish hours. I woke to the smell of breakfast, headed downstairs and feasted on sweet potato hash, fried eggs, sausage and hearty wheat toast with a few cups of strong, excellent coffee. Breakfast conversation with fellow guests - an artist, writer, screenwriter and filmmaker - inspired me for the day. I'll be back!
We had a great stay at the Suminski Innski. Our lovely room overlooked the Hudson - very peaceful and relaxing stay. We would definitely come back!
Beautiful house and comfortable stay!
Tim welcomed us with a bottle of wine that we shared with another couple while sitting on the large front porch ovelooking the Hudson river. The sunset was spectacular the evening we were there, could not have been better.
Tim's house was built in the early part of the 19th century and is being restored to its early splendor by Tim. Our room was large and had a nice view of the river.
Breakfast was a delight. Guest were sitting at a large round table enjoying great bread, Tim's scrambled eggs, fruit, coffee and tea.
We had a great time! Everyone was immediately welcoming including their energetic and fun to play with dog, Kolya. Our room was fully furnished with original artwork and a tuned banjo. The view from the porch was a amazing. Breakfast was served around a large circular table where everyone was able to talk and get to know each other. We would definitely recommend checking out this bnb.
Spacious & grand old world victorian home with a great view of Hudson river. Enjoyed drinking coffee and relaxing on the front porch.
Great Breakfast as well.
Tim, the very kind host, made me feel completely at home in his eclectic, historic, and creaking but cozy inn. Comfortable bed, great sheets, and the best pillows anywhere. The train definitely makes its presence known throughout the night, so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper or put one of the wonderful pillows over your head. Or realize that the sound just adds to the historic ambience.
Coffee the next morning on a wide porch a stone's throw from the Hudson River and a delicious breakfast of eggs with vegetables from Tim's garden and fresh cinnamon rolls. Anyone looking for an experience that is the Un-Ramada will find it at the Suminski Innski. Artists will love it.
I had a wonderful stay at the Suminski Innski. Tim was a great host, ready with tea, cookies, stories, and pancakes. The house was like a treasure hunt of art and history, the rooms comfortable, and the company intriguing. If you are looking for a different type of stay away from the typical sterile hotel room, this is the place to choose.
This place is a gem. Right on the water, amazing old house, lovingly restored, friendly staff. It's quirky in a good way - as others have said, no locks on the doors, amazing furnishings. Wish I could have stayed longer. Next time I'll splash out on one of the rooms at the front of the house looking out to the river. Thanks Tim (who I never met...)
The Suminski Innski was definitely a unique place to stay and Tim was a gracious host. The breakfast was delicious and Tim even invited our daughter over for breakfast (we were visiting her as she was teaching at nearby Bard College). The location on the river in the pretty village of Tivoli was also a plus. We however did not have a restful sleep as unknown to us almost all the remaining rooms were rented out to a wedding party who did not arrive until a little past midnight and then partied through the morning hours. If we had been told of this before we arrived to check in (we of course had also already paid and would have had difficulty finding another place then anyway ) we would not have stayed here.
