About the Olde Rhinebeck Inn Bed and Breakfast

Meet the Innkeepers

Olde Rhinebeck Inn's BFFs and Innkeepers Jonna and Cindy

 

 

A classic example of an Early American Telescoping Colonial Farmhouse, the home that is now the Olde Rhinebeck Inn was built in stages. The B&B dining room was originally built in 1738 by Johann Michael Pultz, a German Palatine, who became a tenant farmer to local land baron, Henry Beekman.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Olde Rhinebeck Inn is located just three and a half miles southeast of the charming village of Rhinebeck, NY, the four-room bed and breakfast is ideally located to enjoy the highlights of the Historic Hudson Valley.

Through the Generations

As his family grew and the farm prospered, Pultz and his wife added one room to the home at a time – every 5 to 10 years. They raised 10 children here, and the house remained in the family for 12 generations (or nearly 240 years). In 1760, they carved out a piece of land to start the Wurtemburg Lutheran Church, and everyone who has lived in the house is buried in the church’s graveyard.

The grounds are a perfect escape from the city.   The B&B is charmingly situated on a country lane. A lovely spot for a romantic getaway or an intimate wedding, the three-acre grounds include a spacious stone patio for guests to enjoy.  Sit on the Adirondack chairs by the bass-stocked, spring-fed pond, row out on the pond and commune with the ducks or lounge in the hammock nestled in the north garden.  Share in the bounty of our small but robust vegetable garden.

Our Earth Friendly Philosophy

We believe that every day should be Earth Day!  We have achieved TripAdvisor Green Leaders Platinum level and  Green Concierge Certification, and have made a real effort to honor the land and our environment by keeping a small flock of chickens, growing our our own veggies and herbs, participating in local organic Community Supported Agriculture, and compost our food waste.  We recycle all metal,glass, plastic and paper and use only eco-friendly cleaners, (ask us about Parsley Plus and Nano cloths!) We live in the country and respect the native flora/fauna and do not use any weed killers on the yard or gardens, allowing us to coexist with a wide variety of many a feathered friend, dragon flies, bull frogs, peepers, deer and many more.
