The Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast is in the heart of the lower Hudson Valley in Salisbury Mills, NY. There is an abundance of fantastic places to visit, museums to see, shops to explore, and restaurants to try right here but sometimes it is nice to venture out a bit and see what else the Hudson Valley has to offer.
Just a quick 25-minute drive over the Hudson River will bring you to a quaint town called Beacon, NY. When guests ask us for suggestions on things to do or places to go, this is one area that is worth a stop if you are looking to spend a day or afternoon out and about. It is only 90 minutes north of New York City so it also gets a lot of traffic from those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle for a day.
There is a rich history here and you will notice great Americana charm as you stroll along Main Street, which is full of wonderful stores, coffee shops, galleries and restaurants. It is a hot spot for antique lovers and collectors in particular and there is a beautiful waterfall of Fishkill Creek that goes right through downtown. One of the most popular attractions is the Dia: Beacon Museum, which is a modern art gallery surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Another great place to visit is the Mount Beacon Incline Railway, which is an awesome hike with a reward at the top of a breathtaking view of the lower Hudson Valley. If you would like to take a step back in time, make a stop at the Madam Brett Homestead or try a new activity at the Beacon Glades Disc Golf Course. If you are up for an adventure, take a thrilling ride in the air with Blue Sky Balloons and see the area from a whole new perspective.
For a dining experience you won’t soon forget, try Homespun Foods for brunch, Culture Café Bar for lunch, The Hop Beacon for a superb list of craft beer, or get a delicious dessert from the Get Frosted Cupcakery.
