Barclay Heights Bed and Breakfast at Smythe House is a micro hotel offering the best breakfast fare and the finest lodging in the Hudson Valley, Woodstock and Catskill area. Stay in a carefully renovated three storey 1890 Classic American Shingle Style Colonial.
Enjoying your day: Wake up and ease yourself out of the bed with its crisp all cotton linens and restorative pillow top hand stitched mattress. Get into the Jacuzzi and relax yourself awake. Come through the parlor and enter the lively tiled, chef designed kitchen. Stop for a minute to talk to the chef and see your breakfast being prepared, then flow through into the beautiful, warm dining area. Pause to enjoy the mountain-view, fresh cut flowers on the table, subtle lively music, smell the coffee being brewed, then begin to enjoy your best meal of the day. Once completely satisfied push back from the table. When you're ready, set out on your business or your adventure, plans and map in hand, or just go back upstairs and jump back into bed. We won't tell.
The architectural style of Smythehouse originated in New England coastal towns and in Northern New York along the Hudson River flourishing from the 1870's into the 20th century, evolving reactionary to the Queen Ann style, popular earlier in the century, reducing ostentation and rather than standing out from, blending into its surroundings. Ornamentation was reduced on the exterior. Turrets and verandas more fully integrated into the design and details used sparingly. The most important feature is the covering of the entire building with natural shingles.
Unity is the guiding principal behind the Classic American Shingle Style Colonial. The shingled walls meld many irregular shapes into an almost seamless mass that is varied, unified and free. That's the way you will feel after your stay, restored and free of the stress of everyday life. Come enjoy weekend lodging in the Woodstock area, and relax with us experiencing the difference outstanding hospitality can make.
