It's remarkable that Sally Watkinson and Doug Posey are eager to let guests' dogs roam free in their B&B—particularly given the amount of antiques on display. But when the couple bought the historic inn—a farmhouse dating back to the 1740s— in 2015, one of their top priorities was staying true to its reputation as the area's most pet-friendly destination.
While animals were non-negotiable, they did give the common spaces and five guest rooms a major facelift. Filled with treasures from their travels, local wares, and a few lucky Craigslist finds, the relaxed, refined spot is the perfect place to kick back after exploring the Hudson Valley's 22 miles of trails.
The farmhouse also offers up plenty of design inspiration...
