Getaway Mavens (2015)
"As you enter the driveway and drive by pastures dotted with grazing horses, you realize this is not the typical over-upholstered B&B- it’s country-chic as inspired by Ralph Lauren. An antique cook stove in the well-used kitchen serves as the baked-goods shelf – with homemade sweets available 24 hours a day."
NY Daily News (2014)
"Two separate couples tell us how they’ve returned again and again, almost hesitant to let the word out about what they see as a travel secret. One New Yorker says he and his wife find themselves asking: “Why go anywhere else once we’ve found this?”
Miami Herald (2014)
"Rhinebeck is chock-full of inns and B&Bs. Among my favorite: WhistleWood Farm Bed & Breakfast, a working farm about three miles outside of town. Maggie, the proprietress, serves scrumptious breakfasts with homemade jams, breads, buttermilk pancakes and herb omelets made fresh with her hens’ eggs. I’ve stayed in the Wyoming room, aptly named with chaps hanging from the pine-paneled walls, a red vintage canoe suspended from the ceiling, and a persimmon-tiled fireplace that gives the room a warm, cozy glow."
Escape Brooklyn (2013)
"Breakfast is large and delicious, with eggs fresh from the chickens that you’ll hear clucking away in the mornings. Every room is designed by Maggie, WhistleWood’s owner and caretaker for more than 30 years, who is delightful."
"There are just seven rooms at Whistlewood, which means my host, Maggie, knew who I was the moment I set foot in her home. We'd already spoken on the phone and arrival was like meeting a new friend in person for the first time..."
"For a true taste of the wild countryside, consider staying at the Whistlewood Farm Bed & Breakfast, situated near the Rhinebeck Performing Arts Center, Rhinebeck Tennis Club, and Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. Wake up to the sound of whinnying horses or the smell of a homemade breakfast."
"You can't help but leave the city pressures behind as you drive up the fence-lined road to this farm where horses graze. The main house is homey and rustic, with more-refined, contemporary-country guest rooms."
