Kingston, NY 12401
You should knowWhen Chris and I celebrated out first wedding anniversary, we decided to spend the weekend in the town we were in when Chris proposed. We didn’t want to stay in the same hotel (which was a dump at the time and is now under new management), but we weren’t thrilled with any of the chain motels, which were away from the parts of town we liked and kind of expensive.
Chris found this little not-quite-bed-and-breakfast, and we decided to take a chance.
So?It was great. The Inn is owned by a couple who also appear to own the antique store next door (you have to go into the store to check in). As a result, the rooms in the Inn are furnished from the store -- and the Guest Information book includes a price sheet in case you want to take any of the furniture or decorations home with you. The bed and couch were incredibly comfortable, the decor was charming, the full kitchen was incredibly handy, and there were a few fun surprises as well. All this for only $175 a night -- not dirt cheap, but better than those motels I mentioned above. We plan to use them again next time we visit Kingston.
You can get breakfast for the B&B experience, but it's part of a more expensive package, so we were happy to forgo it.
OK, odds are you won’t have much reason to go to Kingston, but if you do, be sure to stay here.
The rest of the InternetFew, but good, reviews at TripAdvisor (disclosure: Chris left a review there, too).
