Located in the small village of Marlborough-on-Hudson


The village of Marlboro is located on the busy Route 9W corridor on the west bank of the Hudson River, and provides easy connections to Interstate 84 and Interstate 87.  Danskammer House is halfway between the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Bridge at Poughkeepsie and the Hamilton Fish Bridge at Newburgh.   Access to Interstate 87 (the New York State Thruway) at New Paltz is fifteen miles to the northwest, and access to Interstate 84 at Newburgh is seven miles south.

Our region is sometimes called the crossroads of the Northeast, as the village is 65 miles north of the George Washington Bridge entry into New York City, 85 miles south of Albany, 45 miles west of the Connecticut border, and 50 miles east of the Delaware River crossing into Pennsylvania.

In addition to major highways, the mid-Hudson region is well served by public transportation. The B&B is located ten miles from the Poughkeepsie Train Station, serving both Amtrak national routes and Metro-North commuter lines into Manhattan. The inn is located about fifteen miles from Stewart International Airport, now accommodating both domestic and international airlines.  Domestic air destinations include Philadelphia, Detroit, and various points in Florida.   International air service provides access to gateway cities in Norway, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.   Upon request, the innkeepers will consider meeting trains or planes, with at least 24 hours advance notice, for a fee.

For visitors reluctant to drive into New York City, Danskammer House offers a reverse tourism option. Guests may simply drive to the Poughkeepsie Train Station 10 miles away, park their car for the day, and purchase a round-trip commuter ticket into Grand Central Terminal—90 minutes away. Enjoy one of America’s most beautiful train rides, arrive hassle-free in mid-town Manhattan, and enjoy a day of exploring one of the world’s great cities. Danskammer guests may relish the advantages of both country and city.
