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.
