Located in Rhinebeck, the Beekman Arms Inn is a fun space that has been open since 1766. It is America’s oldest continuously operated hotel. At one point, George Washington slept here! The property has evolved since those days with modern features such as air conditioning and private bathrooms.
Built in 1911, Glenmere Mansion is one of the best hotels in the Hudson Valley. This pink Tuscan-style estate overlooks Glenmere Lake. The 150-acre estate was once the country retreat of the Goelet Family. It has since morphed into a fine hotel offering a relaxing spa, formal gardens and recreational activities. With just 18 rooms, the quaint space is the easiest way to get away from all the noise of the nearby city.
The hearty restaurant is run by Brooklyn-born chef Devin Mills, who trained at New York's Le Bernardin and Gramercy Tavern. Wood-grilled steaks and 35 beers on tap draw a lively crowd.
Chef-owner Daniel Nilsson's DNA may well be found in the Swedish specials he presents each week, like the toast Skagen, with its judicious use of dill, cold shrimp, and delectable whitefish roe.
