February is the month of love and there’s no shortage of warm hospitality and romantic retreats at the Inn this month. 

We welcomed couples and guests from all over, to spend their sweet getaways with us.

We had significant accumulation of snow this month and our guests were able to take advantage of the beautiful Warwick landscape for snow shoeing and cuddling up to cocktails and hot cocoa inside.

Snowy weather is absolutely breathtaking in upstate New York and there’s always plenty to do. 

It might be snowy, but it’s an incredibly beautiful view to enjoy over breakfast or an afternoon inside with some music to help you unwind.

Our guests got acquainted with the Inn’s favorite feathered employee of the month.

When snow falls, Bill and Joe flock to warmer weather for their annual vacation. 

70 degrees and sunny in Savannah, Georgia Joe enjoys his first authentic beignet at the beautiful Huey’s on the waterfront. Just a pit stop along the way, they continue on to Jupiter in Florida for a few weeks of fun in the sun.

Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 3.43.15 PM

Hopefully Joe will bring up a delicious beignet recipe for some sweet desserts at the Inn. 

We might have gotten some snowy weather, but we know the lovely blooms in our garden are about to wake up for the spring.

We’re excited to welcome March and some of the beautiful spring days to come at the Inn where we can sip our morning coffee on the porch to the sights and sounds of Warwick spring mornings.

January Recap

After a beautiful few months of celebrating with family, we continued our January in the same spirit. We welcomed the new year with warm hospitality and the gathering of friends and family. 

Even though New York was barely dusted this winter so far, we made sure to take advantage of some time together.

This month we headed over to Mountain Creek for some skiing and snowboarding. Mountain Creek is only a short drive from the Inn, making it a perfect winter time excursion for guests to adventure.

The Inn at Stony Creek family gave it our all on the trails before finally turning in for the day with some cocoa and toasty warm pajamas and relaxed with some video games.

Whether you’re a pro on the slopes or finding your snow legs on the bunny hills, it’s a whole lot of fun and definitely a workout.

Mountain Creek Activity Resort is a four season resort that has activities from snowboarding and skiing to water activities and ziplining in the summer months. There’s always something to keep you up and going and close to plenty of charming lunch and dinner destinations.

Dean and Jennifer celebrated their 10 year anniversary with us this month, in the same place that Dean popped the question. There’s no shortage of romance here at the Inn.

This is a photo of Jennifer and Dean on the day of their engagement over 10 years ago! Time may fly but sweet memories are timeless. Thank you for spending this important day with us!

Joe had a heartwarming visit this month with his beautiful cousin Kathy and the always lovely Lori. They did so much to brighten his day with their surprise visit, it was such a treat to have them.

There’s always people to see and something to do at the Inn, and one of the guest favorites is our English Movie Night! We gather together with homemade sweets to wind down after a long day and watch a classic movie.

One of our most popular desserts being asked for by name is Joe’s famous chocolate cake. If you have a sweet tooth, this is to die for. He decided to share the top secret recipe for the cake fans that are craving some chocolate.

November Recap

2016 Gave the Inn at Stony Creek family so much to be thankful for.

We celebrated the end of fall and the beginning of the beautiful holiday season surrounded by new and old friends and family at the Inn during upstate New York’s most beautiful season.

Here was some of Joe’s highly anticipated Thanksgiving dessert buffet, his favorite course for a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner. We’re lucky we saved some room.

15171111_1420172161335950_2055894736711205314_n

We even experienced a little snowfall, the first of the season!

15202656_1137478892956048_506458791767332189_n

The landscape of the Inn is always so magical when dusted with a little snowfall. However, the chickens woke up a little confused that day!

With some our chilly days, we welcomed guests with a cozy breakfast in our dining room. Our breakfast menu featured plenty of local produce and products that gave us some bright fall flavors to incorporate.

15094979_1133095046727766_2426169316776106379_n

We had some unseasonably warm evenings, calling guests to watch the evening’s sunset from our relaxing porch.

15134758_1139040409466563_1500588770818754706_n

November welcomes the changing of the seasons, slowly removing the old to welcome the new once spring arrives. The Inn is nestled in historic Warwick, with plenty of antique shops to discover on chilly fall days.

15284824_1144295688941035_9210710438885807428_n

As we welcome winter, we invite guests from all over to experience the extraordinary serenity of upstate New York and all the beautiful nature surrounding the Inn. There’s always something to see and the pace is always your own.

We warmly welcome the holiday season and all the family, togetherness and joy it will surely bring.

Take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and take the opportunity to reconnect with family and friends in a comfortable and inviting space. Celebrate with us and let our home be yours as you relax this season and ring in the new year.

October Monthly Recap

Aside from our recent snow flurries, we enjoyed some amazing autumn weather at the Inn at Stony Creek this October!

Falling for Fall in Upstate New York

100_4784

Fall is officially upon us! 

As a historical bed and breakfast, we are passionate about all things local and upstate New York just happens to be the epicenter of autumn adventures.

During a cozy fall stay at The Inn at Stony Creek, apple and pumpkin picking are nearby!

Some of our favorite orchards have a little extra something to do including live music, activities for kids and home made baked goods fresh from the farm.

Apple Ridge Orchards 

Warwick, NY

Known as the Hudson Valley’s most scenic orchard experience, this is the perfect local stop for a weekend away soaking in the full experience of the upstate NY fall season. Bring your camera and get some awesome shots of changing leaves and the field of pumpkins for some sweet autumn memories. When going to pick pumpkins, there’s a flat rate so you’ll never overpay for that great pumpkin Charlie Brown!

Masker Orchards

Warwick, NY

If you’re looking for a great big bag of hand picked new york apples, look no further than Masker Orchards right here in Warwick. They have homemade apple cider donuts and fresh baked apple pie you won’t want to pass up. Visit Masker’s country store and pick up some quality local products like jams, sauces and honeys to take back to the inn to go with your morning breakfast.

Och’s Orchard

Warwick, NY

Och’s Orchard has a great selection of “pick your own” seasonal produce and a fully stocked farmer’s market open seven days a week. They have an amazing selection of local and farm-made products. Their dedication to freshness and variety have made Och’s a Warwick family tradition. Pick some apples and pumpkins, enjoy some fresh cider and check out their livestock roaming the farm. Och’s is a must see for the Hudson Valley fall season. 

Pennings Orchard

Warwick, NY

Pennings Orchard is open seven days a week through the autumn picking season, giving everyone an opportunity to get to the farm for a day of fresh produce and some family fun. Pennings is a hit with the kids once they see the hayrides, activities and kiddie maze to play in. They have a stunning view of the valley and you can even book “Hoedown” packages with them featuring the panoramic view and several menus to choose from. This is a fun stop for any age, with plenty of rustic charm.

There’s plenty of fall adventures to be had during your stay at the Inn this fall. 

We invite the cool crisp weather and the vibrant beautiful colors of this amazing place to live, stay and play in Upstate New York.

Warwick’s local hospitality will have you feeling cozy and ready to start this year’s holiday season.

August to Autumn

Located in Warwick, New York

This August, the Inn At Stony Creek enjoyed some beautiful rest and relaxation. We welcomed new and old friends to stay and spent the sunny days in the gardens and soaking in the sunshine on the patio.

All this beautiful sunshine has produced quite the tomato crop!

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 1.47.03 PM

We’re proud of our garden and the tomato crop this season was nothing short of amazing! Bill and Joe brought in an impressive basket of tomatoes that will be a delicious addition to some home cooked meals at the inn.

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 1.47.22 PM

Although our tomatoes will be a welcome staple in our family style dinners, we looked back at some of the stunning breakfasts to leave the Stony Creek kitchen.

“I loved staying in the Lexington Room. Sitting out there in the private patio after the delicious breakfast, just reading and sitting with my husband. Listening to the geese, ducks and water. No place to rush to, just a perfect getaway.” -Audrey Hirsch

Thank you Audrey for your heartfelt review, it really captures the charm and spirit of a visit to the Inn At Stony Creek.

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 2.17.04 PM

The gardens were in full bloom and some of our resident animals couldn’t be happier to soak in some sunshine. There’s something soothing about the relaxed ambient sound of the gardens to make you forget the hustle and bustle of the work week.

Wake Up and Smell the Roses | Inn at Stony Creek June Recap

We had a beautiful June at the Inn this year. Our gardens were looking spectacular just in time for the annual Countryside Garden Tour to close this month with outstanding community support for local charity.  

Check out this beautiful shot of the rose garden at the Inn at Stony Creek taken by Yellow Jacket Social.

FB_IMG_1467123449943

The tour through the Stony Creek gardens was a huge success and we appreciate everyone who took the time to view our landscape and celebrate the start of summer with us. We are anxiously awaiting next year’s tour, with bigger brighter blooms and even more local support.

IMG_1109

We had some fantastic guests stay with us this month and had the opportunity to dine together during our spaghetti night, which is always a hit. Sometimes the best way to relax is to make new friends and fill up on a great meal that includes your family sauce recipe. Nothing says home quite like a big homemade dinner eaten together.

2016-05-27 17.48.13

2016-06-04 18.55.20

June was alive this month and with the gardens perfectly arranged and resident wildlife, it was an exceptional way to spend vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the workweek. There is no such thing as strangers at the Inn, it’s easy to become part of the family during your stay.

2016-05-07 10.49.20

Alongside all the summer celebrations this month, we are sad to announce the loss of a beloved Stony Creek family member. A very familiar sight at the inn, our resident bird, Papagallo or “Poppy” as she came to be known, passed away  on the 16th of June. She lived a long life of 56 years warming our hearts, and she will surely be missed.

FB_IMG_1467123338411

Poppy is survived by her fun and adventurous pal, Mykonos.

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 11.13.27 AM

We hope to see you soon as we welcome the sunshine, and warm laughter of friends this July at the inn.  After all it’s summertime and the livin’ is easy.
