More about Inn at Stony Creek
One of the things Warwick, NY is known for is it's apples! They have a few orchards, but I always go to Och's. They have acres of apple trees, all different kinds. As well as raspberry bushes, a pumpkin patch and a great little country store. The store sells all kinds of tasty treats, including freshly made cider, jams and doughnuts.
It comes as no surprise that Warwick is also home to the Apple Fest. I have only been once but it is a townwide celebration of the wonderful fruit that grows in such abundance here. The town is very attractive and old fashioned, with lot of Antique Shops and quaint little resturants.
In addition to orchards, Warwick is also home to a few winerys. Be sure to stop in and sample some of the local vintages.

New York Wineries
New York State has a lot to offer in the Wine tasting department. There are many wineries in the finger lakes region as well as in the hudson valley.
One interesting grouping of wineries is the Shawagunk Wine Trail, 9 wineries that offer special self guiding tours for visiting all of them. The most popular of these events is the " Wreath Fineries In 9 Wineries" tour. In the beginning of the tour you recieve a grapevine wreath and at each winery you recieve a special ornament to decorate it. You will also enjoy holiday foods and wines.
Part of this tour is located in Warwick, NY. Warwick is home to 3 wineries. The Applewood Winery, the Demarest Hill Winery, and The Warwick Valley Winery which is the one we visited. When we arrived the place was packed! A tasting was already in progress so we watched while we waited to participate in the next one. A measly $3 will get you a taste of a dozen wines and a memento of your tasting, a complimentary wine glass. They start you with the reds, ease over to the whites, pause with a blush, surprise you with a few ciders and wrap things up with a dessert wine and a port. For an additional $2 you can sample the apple brandy. I had a sip of Lou's, Strong Stuff!
After the tasting, we wandered around the shop and the grounds. I picked up a few tasty ciders, peeked into the "dining room" where live music was playing and then went outside for a look around. Out back, is a stable with a few horses includia "Nadia" a beautiful white horse that one of the red wines in named for.
The winery and tasting room are open every day, 11 - 6.
Perfect in every way!
My husband and I love getting away for the weekends; staying at B&B's. We found the Inn at Stony Creek several years ago, and instantly fell in love with the Inn so much so that we try to plan annual trips here. The decor, the breakfast, and the hospitality that Bill has filled his home with, is superior to none. The serenity of the town, and Bill's beautiful grounds starts your vacation off with an instant feeling of relaxation. From sitting out on the porch to waking up to the aroma of a delicious breakfast, you will not find a more perfect place to stay in the Warwick Area. We would, and do, recommend the Inn to anyone and everyone.
My husband & I stayed at the Inn at Stony Creek this summer and absolutely loved every minute. Bill, the owner, is so warm and welcoming and the Inn is restored beautifully. The attention to detail from the decor to the dining is second to none. We will definitely be coming back. A word of warning though, book early to avoid disappointment!

Charming B & B
Only 1 1/2 hours from NYC, but we felt like we were a world away. We went for a brief romantic getaway, and the Inn provided great ambiance. It was restored and furnished beautifully, with homey touches. We were in the Patriot Room, which was the smallest, but was cozy and comfortable, and clean! Actually, spotless. We peaked at some of the other rooms, which looked just as nice to stay in. But as with all B&B's, the walls are thin. We hear an expansion is coming, hope it doesn't take away the charm.
Bill was so hospitable, and provided great restaurant recommendations and had printed directions for the area's attractions. We had bathrobes, water and chocolate in our room, and coffee and soda were always available. A very good plated breakfast was served in the dining room in the morning.
We went to nearby Sugar Loaf artisan's village, which was a bit of a disspointment. However, the town of Warwick had some cute stores and boutiques. And the best French cafe, La Petite Cuisine. mmm mmm.
It snowed the day before we went, but the roads were clear when we arrived. We plan on going back in warmer weather to see more of what Warwick has to offer.
Now This is a B & B!
My wife and I live in midtown and Manhattan and, over the years have managed to stay clear of all sorts of B & B's and Ye Olde Inns and such as being too precious and just too obtrusive. Who needs to make conversation with strangers over cheese and cheap wine?
Well, we had to be in Warwick on a weekday for an overnight and found that there were no motels in the vicinity. Reluctantly, we booked the Inn at Stony Brook - mainly because its website looked pretty good.
Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! The Innkeeper, Bill Signor, was a delight. Knowledgeable, pleasant, interesting and - best of all - never obtrusive. Everything was there at the Inn, thanks to Bill, perfectly placed and ever so right, but never precious or studiously olde timey. Even the mattress was perfect.
Finally, Bill's breakfasts are the stuff of legend.
In sum, this is one B & B to which we will with pleasure return - every chance we get!
Loved the Stony Creek Inn
We had a lovely stay at the Stony Creek Inn. The home itself was just beautiful with tastefully decorated bedrooms. Lots of great antique furniture. Breakfast was delicious and Bill the Inn Keeper and his staff are friendly and extremely helpful.
Nestled in a charming town - it was a great getaway. We will definitely be back!
Quaint, Quiet, Relaxing...I could go on!
My wife and I loved our stay at The Inn at Stony Creek. We combined my birthday and Valentine's day and had a great time. We arrived a little early, but Bill had our room all ready. Our room was beautiful. We had a nice electric fireplace that kept us toasty. Everything in the room was very beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and I got some much needed sleep.
Bill was very friendly and helpful. He gave me turn by turn directions from Philly that cut out a lot of turnpike and highway driving and was very scenic. We had book a package with a spa visit. I highly recommend that you take advantage of this. The spa was great. If we needed to go somewhere, Bill had directions. Bill booked our dinner reservations for us and even gave us use of his card at the video store.
Breakfast was unbelievable. Food was served in a very bright (by sunlight) dinning area. Everyone staying there was friendly and there was one couple that had been there before and said they loved the place.
My wife and I someday hope to have our very own B&B, and Bill was gracious to talk about what it takes and gave me some great advise.
My wife and I have been to several B&B's on the east coast. I would recommend the Inn at Stony Creek to anyone who is looking for a nice romantic get-a-way.
An excellent place to escape from hustle and bustle of the big Apple
As part of a 5 day trip to New York from the UK we decided to head upstate to the Woodbury Common shopping complex to make the most of the strength against the dollar. Bill was very helpful and drove us to and from the shopping centre, so we could get all we needed.
This bed and breakfast is in a beautiful location in the country and therefore provides a great break from NY. Bill recommended one of the local restaurants to have a meal, which was fantastic.
Rooms were delightful, including one with a beautiful four poster bed. Breakfast was fresh and tasty each morning, served in a lovely setting.
All in all, i would recommend this Inn to anyone looking for an escape from the city and a short, relaxing break. Bill was the perfect host!
