Aside from the trailer park decor and the sump pump that went thump - thump- thump all night long - it was overpriced and under heated . So my advice is try another location. The only advantage is proximity to the Culinary Institute of America but you're better off at a budget motel. (I admit the breakfast buns were delicious).

Goodness trailer decor! Well in the business of hospitality, whether it be restaurants or lodging, one has learned that you simply can't please everyone. The inn is quite lovely and it is warm and charming. We always show the guests how to regulate the thermostats to their comfort. all the rooms upstairs have cozy working fireplaces that are EXTREMELY warm.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during the fall for one night. It's a lovely house and in a great location for seeing the sites of Hyde Park. For $200+ a night after taxes though, it didn't seem worth it in our opinion. Pros: -Breakfast was fantastic (cook from the CIA) -Rooms were comfortable -Host was helpful Cons: -You get... More

Lovely, charming B&B. secluded and comfortable. Greatly located right across the street from the CIA! Perfect ! And very close to the town of rhinebeck & many historic landmarks.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the inn. I have always though Hyde park is centrally located to wonderful restaurants and sights! The Walkway across the Hudson is a mere three miles, FDR's libray one mile, Vanderbilt, three miles. Even to visit other villages, most are simply twenty minutes. And the wineries Oh la la!

This was my secon stay at Le Petit Chateau and as the first one, it did not disappoint. In an ideal location for visiting Culinary Institute of America, less than .5 miles away, it provides such treats as breakfast cooked by a CIA trained chef and a generous library that offers books on wine and cooking. Comfortable rooms with fireplace... More

Thank you noticing our french shampoo! Really, L'Occitane is one of the best in the industry & I truly love their Provence products.

We were 4 couples who take annual outings to a different B&B once a year. Le Petit Chateau was the least inviting, least comfortable of all that we have visited and the breakfasts were totally unexceptional.

Great Inn located within minutes of CIA, and only a short ride to FDR attractions. Valerie is a great Inn keeper, and the team she has working with her are very personable, and helpful when it came time to plan our days. Food was delicious, and rooms are updated and clean. We wil visit again.

This Inn advertises what it does not deliver. We went to the Chateau for a relaxing weekend with our adult children. We were disappointed on so many levels: noise, wine and cheese hour, the facility and billing. NOISE: A cooking class was ongoing in the kitchen, with four boisterous guests laughing and drinking. We could not get away from the... More

I was disappointed to find there was absolutely nothing "chateau" about "Le Petit Chateau." It was "seulement une maison ordinaire." The setting was pleasant and quiet, but there was no charm about the house at all.
