So you want to be an Innkeeper?

That is what my sister said to me after I told her what I had been thinking about for awhile. We talked for hours that evening, then she said .... "I'll do it with you" and our partnership was launched!

The year was 1995, we wanted to settle in the Hudson River Valley with all of it's history, culture, arts, walking trails and food (The Culinary Institute of America is just 3 miles from our bed and breakfast), what was there not to love about the Hudson Valley! We would still be close to "the city" (New York City) where we are from, just a quick train ride away.

So we opened Journey Inn Bed & Breakfast in Hyde Park, New York (Franklin D. Roosevelt's Home & Presidential Library), we are just across from The Vanderbilt Mansion ... it doesn't get much better than this!

We are celebrating our 15th year as innkeepers and we've never looked back.
