We are centrally located in Dutchess County where you can dine at the Culinary Institute of America or other fine dining establishments, visit Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Home and Museum, the FDR Presidential Library, Eleanor Roosevelt’s Val-Kill Home, Vanderbilt Mansion and the “Great Estates” Region.

Our newest area attraction is the Walkway Over The Hudson and it is not to be missed! There is antique shopping, farmers markets as well as other outdoor activities are here for you to enjoy.
Savor a full and hearty breakfast prepared by Lee, a Culinary Institute of America graduate. Lee was featured on an episode of the Food Network’s “Tyler’s Ultimate” television show, where he made “The Willows Raised Apple Pancake”. Indulge yourself with freshly squeezed juice, homemade jams and sausages. Many of our breakfasts include vegetables and herbs from our own garden, the jams made from fruit picked at nearby farms. All breads are made from home-ground flours and are served with home-churned butter. Lee is a beekeeper so we have honey from our own beehives!
There is a two night minimum on weekends and holidays for the months of May through October.

“Our large green attic bedroom was filled with an astonishing and often humorous collection of rural ephemera. The solid breakfast the next morning included homemade whole wheat bread, homemade sausages, a frittata stuffed with home grown vegetables, excellent homemade raspberry and strawberry jams, and honey from the Fraitags’ own beehives.”
