Located in Warwick, New York, only about an hour’s drive from New York City is the Warwick Valley Bed and Breakfast. Conveniently located in the historic district at 24 Maple Avenue, this bed and breakfast is housed in a restored Colonial that was built in the early 1900’s.
I recently visited this bed and breakfast with my husband, as a surprise weekend getaway to celebrate his 40th birthday.
The bed and breakfast has seven different rooms to choose from. Each room has a name and unique decor, with varying bed sizes and arrangements. All rooms have a small seating area, a desk and a private bathroom. Rates range from $144 to $229 a night, depending on the day and season. Children are welcome at this bed and breakfast at an additional cost.
Reservations can be requested online and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to confirm your selected dates and price. In our confirmation e-mail, Loretta, the Innkeeper also noted that she could help arrange appointments for massages or facials and make dinner reservations as well.
When you pull into the driveway of the bed and breakfast there is ample parking around back. You then enter through the back entrance. The bed and breakfast has a no shoes policy. Upon entering, there are shelves to store your shoes. Slippers are available to wear.
I booked the Paisley Room, which as you can see is named for the Paisley bedding. This room has a Queen-sized bed and overlooks the back driveway. It’s on the second floor, that is shared with two other rooms.
I took Loretta up on her offer and had her arrange for an in-room massage for my husband as part of his birthday present. While he had his massage, I went down to the sitting area and read a book.
A benefit of staying at a bed and breakfast is that a homemade breakfast is included in the cost of your stay. There are two dining areas in the bed and breakfast. We ate in the main dining room, pictured below.
We only stayed one night, so I’m unsure if the breakfast menu changes daily.
Loretta cooks everything herself in the kitchen adjacent to the dining room. During our stay, breakfast began with a bowl of cinnamon-spiced fruit and nut mix. We then had a choice of french toast, an omelet, or eggs cooked in any style of our choosing. Sides included roasted butternut squash and bacon. You could have any combination (or all!) of these breakfast options. I ordered the french toast with a side of bacon and butternut squash. It was delicious!
I love that the Warwick Valley Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located in the historic district. It is within reasonable walking distance to the nearby shops and restaurants. The day of our arrival, the weather was beautiful and on our walk into town we discovered the Craft Beer Cellar and Taco Hombre. The next morning we woke up to snow but still trekked back into town to check out the last weekend of the outdoor, local farmer’s market.
Saturday evening we had dinner at the nearby Iron Forge Inn. This is a farm-to-table restaurant located in a revolutionary era home built in 1760. Chef/owner Erik Johansen is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and provides a menu of Modern American cuisine that changes seasonally. We had an amazing dinner and I highly recommend dining here!
On our way home we stopped at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets to enjoy some child-free shopping! Other nearby attractions include Mountain Creek and the Warwick Drive-in Theater. Several wineries including the Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery and Applewood Winery are nearby as well.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Warwick Valley Bed and Breakfast. It was great to get away to celebrate his birthday and we loved the town of Warwick. This was a perfect parents only get-away, as we decided our children wouldn’t appreciate the history and architecture of the village, that we found so charming. There is enough that we didn’t get to see and do that we’d like to make a return trip soon!
