Its official! Our inn and restaurant are finally in full swing, and not a minute too soon...as this is when the Hudson Valley season begins to heat up. There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy. Dutchess County, in particular, hosts some of the most entertaining things to do in all of the Hudson Valley. Right in our neck of the woods, all the vineyards and orchards are starting to bloom, and its a perfect time for a picnic and a glass of wine, brandy, or whiskey from any number of local vineyards and distilleries. If you prefer a more active afternoon, we have one of the top 10gardens in all the world (read below)! A little further north, you can use us a base to attend the Rhinebeck Crafts Festival: shop till you drop, then come home to a hand-crafted cocktail and delicious meal at The Vintage.
