My wife and I stayed one night last week while traveling through the area. Wonderful old historic spot. We stayed in the Magnolia Room, on the top floor with a great view down the leafy valley to the Hudson River. The room had an adjacent enclosed sunroom and access to the upper deck for sitting. Really nice sized room and... More

We've started staying at Botsford Briar two years ago to celebrate our anniversary and just love it. It's a lovely, quaint, and quiet place to get away and relax. My husband and I will go back each year. Shirley and Charles are wonderful innkeepers!

I came here earlier than October 2015, but that was the earliest date I could select for the review. My boyfriend and I came here for our first excursion to Beacon, and we splurged on the nicest room with the big private glassed in porch, and I think that's why we had such a nice experience. It was great to... More

The Inn is a beautiful Queen Anne home. Wonderful original woodwork and decor. Excellent service. Innkeepers were gracious and helpful. The Main Street, with its quaint shops is within walking distance, as is the "must-see" DIA Museum. I had a wonderful weekend and would certainly recommend the Botsford Briar to my friends, as I already have. I look forward to... More

My wife Joanna and I stayed at the Botsford Briar for three nights and our only complaint is that we didn't have time to spend a fourth. The experience was truly magical. The property is charming and a walking distance from both the train station and downtown Beacon, so there was no need for a car. Our room, the Magnolia... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there a week ago and all I can say...it's in need of a complete over haul. Dirty in places, falling apart, and not inviting. We were traveling upstate for a week and staying in B&B's along the way, this place unfortunately was our only bad experience. The bed was comfortable but that's it. The common... More

Upon our arrival at Botsford Briar we were greeted by the friendly Charles who immediately warned us about the “sink hole” in the yard my husband was about to step into.

Came up for a short weekend in Beacon and couldn't have asked for much more in terms of location. We drove but this B&B is walking distance from the train stop - and an easy walk to Main Street and Dia Beacon. Hosts were friendly and full of suggestions.
