Peter and Julie were the perfect host and hostess. They accommodated my GF status with GF pancakes for breakfast! The room was lovely both beds were very comfortable, the food was great. They were very knowledgeable about the tourist options for just about everything. I would highly recommend this venue and hope I get the opportunity to visit again some day. Alison Achor
The online description and guest feedbacks do not due justice to this wonderful B&B. I don't think I can, either, as the hosts' easy and warm hospitality, the comfortable and beautifully appointed accommodations, and the layering of creative lives expressed over time,was a rare treat for us. We look forward to a return visit!
Peter and Julie were good at communicating before our arrival, were warm and welcoming, and helpful with recommendations for local activities. The guest space was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was an additional charge ($10) but completely worth it! Overall, it was a wonderful experience and would recommend staying if visiting the Hudson River Valley.
Great place to stay. Host makes you feel like your at home. Makes me and emily want to move to Kingston. Good food and drink very close. Beautiful old church. Great weekend getaway.
Peter and Julie's "blue room" was a fantastic place to wake into on a winter morning. An excellent breakfast, with great conversation, rounded out a wonderful start to the day. These exceptional hosts will make you feel at home in Kingston.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? Good vibes from Peter and Julie from the moment they greeted us. Their breakfast was delicious, and they made special gluten and apple-free dishes for my allergic girlfriend. The surrounding area was beautiful after a heavy snowstorm the previous day, and I'm sure it would be even more so in spring. Lots of great places to eat and walks to be had. Can't wait to come back.
My family and I had the most lovely, art filled, and warm weekend in Kingston with Peter and Julie. Between the breath taking accommodations, mouth watering breakfasts, and the comfy dream inspiring bed... We could not have asked for more. To boot we were also able to enjoy incredible cross country ski and good meals not too far away. Even our 5 year old daughter was enamored!!
I can assure you that it is my hope to revisit the Church des Artistes during the other three seasons. What a great escape from NY.
We had such a good time last weekend. I am already dreaming of going back....and we surely will do. Julie and Peter are so warm and welcoming that we immediately felt at home.
Peter and Julie were absolutely amazing! Even on one of the coldest weekends, the bedroom was warm and cozy and amazing to wake up to. Highlights were the robes (very warm), the water pressure (amazingly strong - felt like a hot water massage), the breakfast (day 1-roasted potatoes, frittata, apple bread pudding, day 2- omelets, baked tomatoes, rolls, homemade granola and on both days - fresh squeezed orange juice) and the hosts (ask to take a tour of their studio - it's gorgeous)! It was a great experience and I can't wait to come back in the spring/summer to take advantage of the patio.
I had an absolutely wonderful experience at the Church Des Artistes, and look forward to the good company of this family of creative, lovely people again. Breakfast in the kitchen reached positively ideal standards--great company, great food, my platonic ideal of a kitchen....Other things were fantastic as well: the bed was wonderfully comfortable, the shower was a deluge of hot water, Peter was incredibly responsive about my arrival, and the whole family were wonderful ambassadors for Kingston.
Peter and his wife sleeped here only for a night. They are a very wonderful and friendly couple. We are happy to meet them and we hope they will stay here again. Ideal as guests.
Peter, Julie and Aria are a lovely family - we got into this business because of people like them. A pleasure to host. If we are ever in Kingston NY, we will be sure to stay with them at their (Air)B&B!
