Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn
Travel Blogs from Rhinebeck
Our ride across the Mohawk Trail was incredible with one very sharp hairpin turn. I briefly glimpsed a superb view but was very focused on the road at this point. Unfortunately, we did not stop for any photo ops as we were trying to make up some time.
We spent a lot so time lost today, but the time itself was not lost as we were riding through beautiful countryside the whole ...
We had a hot trip up the Hudson today. Not a whole lot to see but a smooth trip. Paul drove Kathy's car and stopped along the way to get some pictures of us passing by. Paul found us a low key marina right on the river. Owner and staff were very helpful and welcoming. We did see The replica of Henry Hudson's Half Moon sailing ship as we traveled up the ...
Left Croton on Hudson at 10:00 AM. Kathy, Kevin and Cheryl went up the river while Paul took Kathy's car and drove to Kingston. On the river we passed some beautiful homes and landscapes. Passed by West Point with all of its many building. Saw several small light houses on the upper section of the river. Spending the night at the Kingston Municipal ...
... after watching the movie! Especially in the mornings when it's covered in fog! I can say one thing for sure already, the magic of camp isn't like anything else in the world and it's certainly not something I can explain easily right now. I know that the friends I've made in just 2 weeks will be lifelong friendships and I can only imagine what it'll be like after 10 weeks ...
... a place to return to - next time for more than a day! Upon entering the museum we were greeted by towering dinosaurs. The truly cool thing is that 85% of the dinosaurs on display at the museum are real dinosaur fossils not just casts. It is hard to fathom what it must have felt like when the explorer-scientists-paleontologists, began to piece together the meaning of these huge bones that were being uncovered throughout ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn Rhinebeck
I was extremely disappointed with the room. It was not cozy or charming. It felt like a roadside hotel room with a fireplace. The grounds were pretty and the town was charming, but the courtyard rooms were not what we expected. The check in building- the Beekman Arms- seemed to have much more potential. We were just very disappointed about what we got for the rate we paid.
Liked it a lot
I can't believe the rotten reviews this B&B has received. We loved it. The room was very cute. It was spacious, graciously decorated and warmly appealing. On this warm day in August the room air conditioner worked very efficiently. The breakfast was so-so but it is only advertised as a continental breakfast.
HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY!!! Extremely rude staff!!
HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY!!!
Staff was down right rude! unhelpful, and stuck up.
Our nearly $200 a night room was located in front of an enormous air conditioner that went on and off all night! We were unable to change our room according to the staff.
We were extremely disappointed with our stay we wrote a letter of complaint and vowed never to return.
Perfect location & charm
I used to live in the rhinebeck area; I am a graduate of the CIA. When I returned to the area to get married, I stayed here with all my family and friends and my two dogs! I have never stayed at such a lovely hotel (it's not a B&B - it's too large) that catered to pets. So, the breakfast is poor - go out in the town for a walk. The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable and the location is in the center of rhinebeck. I love it.
The Beekman Arms was a sheer disppointment. The staf was incredibly unfriendly and non-helpful. The lights/electric went out in our Gables room only by using the hair dryer. We notified the staff of the issue and they truly made us feel like we did something wrong. For $250.00 plus for a weekend, one would expect more than what we experienced not to mention the boxed cake continental breakfast.
We recently returned for our second trip to the Beekman Arms. Our perfect little getaway ended on a very sad note. Someone on the staff stole a very expensive pair of my wifes pants from our room!! We are currently trying to resolve the issue with management, so we will keep you updated.
We took care of this incident within a couple of weeks of the report.
It is the policy of the Inn when guest leave items behind that we will mail them back as a
Courtesy to our guest, at the expense of the hotel.
Not a cozy B&B - leaves a lot to be desired.
Not a cozy B&B like we expected. The breakfast was definitely not the same standard as other B&B's that we hav stayed at - the coffee cake was out of a grocery store box, stale cereal, etc. The location is the only good part.
The Beekman Arms fell way below our expectations-we did not feel we were having a "special getaway":
Staff was neither welcoming nor helpful. Very basic complimentary continental breakfast. Noisy room with low ceiling Located on main street of Rhinebeck village No tea/coffee with cookies in afternoon No bed turndown with a treat No boardgames Slow checkout process (no pre-printing of bill)
Delamater Inn/Beekman Arms
Stayed 1 night at the Delamater. Room looked nice, but wasn't. Air conditioner was extremely loud and not very cool, water dripped, bed wasn't comfortable, several light bulbs were burnt out, breakfast was very poor. Poor attitude. The nice part was the dinner at the inn. It was superb. Advice, eat dinner, but don't sleep there. The inn and the restaurant are run as 2 separate businesses.
So much to see and do and so picturesque. Stayed at Beekman Arms ancillary motel (we are not the B&B types, do not like old&creaky, but the restaurant there is top notch) must see home of FDR and you must eat at CIA - have tried both the American Bounty and Katerina Di Medici - the "Eveready Diner" on Route 9 in Hyde Park just below Rhinebeck was great for more casual fare - really very good food and varied menu. Also visited Storm King Art Center - try to go on a day when there are tours - hard to walk this as it is so large but very impressive - great Calders; took a boat ride from Kingston on the Hudson - scenery is fabulous, on way back to NYC or PHILA, do not miss Kykuit - Rockefeller estate, also, take the scenic drive around Bear Mountain and West Point for great views and some pullovers on the road of the majestic Hudson. Vanderbilt Mansion is good to visit also. We toured Montgomery Mansion also - lovely grounds but could miss this one if you are pressed for time. Village of Rhinebeck has great little ice cream parlors and retro-feel comfort food restaurants. Fun time for all ages.
