Danskammer House B&B is a true gem in the Hudson Valley.
Danskammer House B&B is a true gem in the Hudson Valley. Each of the five rooms is comfortable and elegant -- the innkeepers paid attention to every detail. The Church Lounge on the top floor is spacious and inviting, with a lovely view of the river and the surrounding area. Breakfast is a gourmet treat which tops off a delightful experience.

We had a very special experience as the first “official” guests at Danskammer House
We had a very special experience as the first "official" guests at Danskammer House. Linda and Ken are both welcoming conversationalists, and we had an unusual "small world" connection to them through mutual acquaintances. That the inn is within walking distance of the Falcon is a terrific feature.

Sunrise is a spectacular show from the third-floor lounge.
I was invited for a three-day stay at Danskammer House B&B in the fall. I had no expectations, but was greeted warmly by the innkeepers and welcomed into a very comfortable and well appointed "grand old dame." The artwork and lighting are exceptional. The room with a king-size bed has lovely solid wood furniture and comfortable, cozy linens. The bathroom was well planned for a relaxing shower. Each room has many windows for a view of the surrounding town [and river below]. Sunrise is a spectacular show from the third-floor lounge.

We would gladly return.
From the moment we stepped inside Danskammer House, our hosts Linda and Ken Cool were accommodating and engaging. Each room in the inn, from the shared public spaces to the private ensuite rooms, is tastefully decorated and comfortable. Every detail is deliberate. Breakfast was generous, innovative and delicious. We would gladly return.

Danskammer House B&B is a lovely old home…
Danskammer House B&B is a lovely old home with all current amenities. The innkeepers are very hospitable and knowledgeable about the immediate area and the Hudson Valley. [When asked about the area, they even took us on a road tour of beautiful local sites that we would probably never have discovered on our own.] The third-floor lounge offers wonderful views of the sunrise over the Hudson River. The breakfast menus are excellent and change daily. It is an overall great experience for anyone travelling through the Hudson Valley.

We cannot imagine a better place to stay in the Hudson Valley.
We cannot imagine a better place to stay [in the Hudson Valley]. The B&B is inviting and extraordinarily well considered and well appointed. Hosts Linda and Ken Cool are warm and welcoming, and they are eager to accommodate the guests' wishes. Among numerous delightful amenities are the ability to control the heat in one's own bedroom and bathroom and very good WiFi.

For a great B&B experience in the beautiful Hudson Valley, you must try Danskammer House.
For a great B&B experience in the beautiful Hudson Valley, you must try Danskammer House. It features spacious, light-filled guest suites with large private baths for each bedroom. There is much to see and do in the area, such as West Point, the FDR estate, and many farm markets. The innkeepers know almost everything about the Valley, offer good advice [about day outings], and will tell you how to get to places off the beaten track if you had only known to ask.

I’m only sorry my stay wasn’t longer
Danskammer House is the finest bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. The rooms are well-appointed and very comfortable. No attention to detail has been spared by the thoughtful and charming innkeepers, whose interesting conversation enhances their hospitality. The breakfast was first-rate. I'm only sorry my stay wasn't longer.

The rooms are beautiful, the ambiance is perfect, and the innkeepers become your friends.
We spent a beautiful evening on Thanksgiving, [enjoyed] a quiet and peaceful night, and [awoke] to a glorious early morning (complete with gorgeous sunrise) at Danskammer House. The rooms are beautiful, the ambiance is perfect, and the innkeepers become your friends. The breakfast will spoil you. The beauty of this restored home will be memorable and will continue to be talked about -- by you!

A delightful B&B in a charming small town along the Hudson River
A delightful B&B in a charming small town along the Hudson River. Excellent restaurant and bar one minute away by foot; quaint bakery and wine shop around the corner; and a jazz-focused musical venue three minutes away by foot. The inn itself is beautifully appointed, and the extremely hospitable innkeepers Linda and Ken have left no stone unturned in creating a warm ambiance....

The innkeepers are pleased to welcome guests from across America and around the world to the warm hospitality of Danskammer House nestled in a small village perched above the Hudson River.
Our beautiful regional landscapes were carved out eons ago by the majestic Hudson River and the Catskill and Shawangunk mountains. Along with the great river thoroughfare and majestic mountain ridges, the greater Hudson Valley with its orchard-dotted hills and cascading kills still recalls the pastoral landscapes of the 19th century Hudson River School of painters. And the luminous qualities of our valley and mountain atmosphere continue to offer spectators magnificent sunrises and sunsets sparkling with the same vibrant colors captured long ago by Thomas Cole, Frederick Church, George Inness, Jasper Cropsey and their fellow artists.
Danskammer House itself began as a handsome 1870 private residence in colonial revival style built by the locally prominent, fruit-growing Carpenter family and was later transformed into the medical clinic and residence of village Doctor J.B. Scott after the Second World War.
Today, Danskammer House flies under the registry of the AirBnB movement and offers bed-and-breakfast style accommodations in four to five private guestroom suites and makes available to all guests multiple public rooms, outdoor porches and terraces, young fruit trees and berry patches, as well as kitchen and herb and cottage flower gardens.
The original 1870 Danskammer House was extensively renovated with new infrastructure systems in 2016-2017 while preserving key architectural features of the historic dwelling. The innkeepers have blended the ambiance of a bygone era with contemporary levels of guest comfort.
Considerable attention has been given to environmental systems, with new windows that really open, a ceiling fan in every guest room, an individually controlled heating and cooling ductless unit in each upstairs bedroom, and additional heating and venting in each bathroom.
