Fodor's Expert Review Whistlewood Farm Bed & Breakfast
52 Pells Rd., Rhinebeck, New York, 12572, USA
You can't help but leave the city pressures behind as you drive up the fence-lined road to this farm where horses graze. The main house is homey and rustic, with more-refined, contemporary-country guest rooms. You may sit on one of many decks and enjoy the display of wildflowers. In winter, the fieldstone fireplace is put to use. For more privacy, stay in the Carriage House, a converted barn with two suites. Breakfast—pancakes or egg dishes—is hearty, and home-baked pie and cake are readily available. After fueling up, explore one of the trails on the grounds.
