On Vacationist this week, among other hotels and Inns is a little gem I have been wanting to visit. (I have a long list of places I want to visit).
When Richard Gere and his wife, Cary Lowell decided to open an Inn, they wanted to create a low key vibe with a concentration on good, wholesome food, wine, and the restorative benefits of yoga. The Inn at Bedford Post with its 8 luxury rooms is about an hour outside of Manhattan, nestled on 14 acres of backcountry beauty. It is calling to me for all those reasons and maybe, a Richard sighting?
With a simple yet upscale design and an emphasis on comfort and romance, Cary and Richard were very hands-on during the design process. They really want your stay to be a memorable experience.
There are 2 restaurants on the premises. Both have gotten good reviews. The more formal Farmhouse Resturant features American cuisine using the best in seasonal ingredients. The Barn and The Bakery are much more casual for lite bites.
They often hold events, fundraisers, wine pairings, weddings, etc. and have a pre theatre menu if you are going off to Caramoor for a little night music.
The yoga loft has a full schedule of classes and wellness workshops.
There is so much to do in the area...or do nothing.
Send me your email address if you need an invitation to join the Vacationist site. Otherwise, look for Richard and me (oh and my husband, Steven too!) at The Inn at Bedford Post .
