Inness Overview


The George Inness Suite is located on the northeast corner of the second floor with east-facing windows that look down to the B&B’s formal garden and village center and, at a higher plane, to the Hudson River and Taconic Mountains in the distance.  The room is beautifully bathed in soft morning light.  The suite is equipped with a queen-size bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a private closet.


Bedroom furnishings include a hand-crafted, maple bed in Shaker style made by Amish craftsmen, a reading and writing table, two side chairs, a console table, and multiple lamps.  Hand-knotted rugs highlight the refinished, original knotty pine floors.  The ensuite closet is stocked with luggage racks, storage boxes, and clothing hangers.  Extra amenities include a hair dryer, extra pillows, and a down comforter.


The focal point for the bedroom is a locally inspired scene entitled “Pond at Milton-on-the-Hudson” painted by George Inness in the early 1880s at his nearby summer studio.  The spring landscape of fruit trees in bloom highlights shades of lavender, purple, and cream, whose colorations are further complemented by fabrics and rugs assembled to enhance the spring-time atmosphere of the suite.

Inness Toilet Area


The private bathroom is fully equipped with custom, high-quality fixtures, including a walk-in shower, sink, and toilet, as well as multiple hanger bars and racks for bathing amenities.   Designed in warm, neutral shades of cream, beige, and taupe, the Inness bathroom features a patterned Italian tile floor, subway-tiled shower, granite-topped sink, white porcelain fixtures, and chrome accessories.  The bathroom is also outfitted with a supplemental energy-boost heater and a powerful, yet quiet, ventilation system.  An east-facing, fully operable window infuses the bathroom with early morning light.


The Inness Suite is equipped with a Mitsubishi ductless unit affording individual guest control of the heating and cooling system and is further supplemented by a ceiling fan for seasonal air circulation.  New windows in period style are fully operable and introduce lots of exterior light and fresh air into the environment.  The upgraded electrical system provides ample outlets and also includes a charging block for electronic devices.  Robust WiFi is available ensuite and in all public rooms; additionally, cable connectors and ethernet ports support flat-screen TV service in several shared spaces on the first and third floors.
