Hudson Valley Breakfasts, Cooked With Care by our Innkeepers

Last summer, we wrote a blog post, Stay Safer, Stay Small, Stay B&B, and highlighted in particular, why stay at a B&B and why breakfasts at B&Bs were such an excellent choice for your morning dining. We wanted to highlight each of our members and mention some of the reviews they have gotten about their fabulous breakfasts.

We do want to note; some properties may have changed breakfast options or may have put them on hold again temporarily due to Covid concerns.

We highly suggest enquiring directly at the properties about breakfast options as well as their Covid protocols. Many of the inns are offering in-room dining options, the same great food, same terrific service but the convenience of being able to have your morning coffee and French toast in your pajamas!

Please note when you read through the reviews, the comments about the fresh ingredients, attention to detail, warm hosts, and food allergy attentiveness.

And we have some additional bragging rights too! Hudson Valley named one of Time Magazine’s 100 greatest places in the world 2021!
