Thank you for a wonderful weekend -- February 16, 2015

Thank you for making our stay at Buck's Homestead so wonderful and relaxing. We loved our room (especially the book you wrote about growing up on a farm) and breakfast this morning was outstanding! That was the best french toast I've ever had!

I was also wondering if you might share your chocolate chip cookie recipe with me. They were so delicious and I would love to try to make them at home. Justin and I will certainly tell all of our friends and family about our great stay with you. We hope to see you again in the future!

Thank you again.



Weekend get-a-way -- November 9th 2014

My boy friend and I like to get away for long weekends and drive somewhere not too far from the city. Our stay at the Buck's Homestead Bed & Breakfast worked out perfectly for one such get away. We spent two nights at Joan's warm and cozy home which meant we got to have two of her delicious and hearty country breakfasts. We were also lucky to have been the only guests those two nights so we enjoyed complete privacy moving about our bedroom, the sitting room and our private bathroom. The welcome we received from Joan was warm yet unobtrusive. It started with packages of chocolates and homemade cookies and ended with her own little booklet of her favorite breakfast recipes. And in between, there were bottles of water in the refrigerator and a Keurig machine with a supply of single-cup coffees and teas. Everything was clean, the queen-sized bed was comfortable, and there was a full supply of basic amenities, even dental floss and toothpaste. We would go back to Buck's Homestead if we happened to be in the neighborhood again.

Perfect Get Away! --
October 18, 2014

Thank you Joan for an awesome stay at your home. We had a most delightful stay in your charming Bed and Breakfast. My girlfriend and I typically go away in the fall for a "Girls Get Away" from all our kids and husbands. This was the terrific spot for us to start our adventures in the Hudson Valley. We thoroughly enjoyed your warm welcome, comfy accommodations and fabulously delicious breakfasts. The little town of Montgomery was adorable and your tip to head down to Cold Spring forfor antiquing and lunch was perfect too. Thanks again for a marvelous stay.…

Great stay at Buck's Homestead --
September 20, 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our far too short stay (one night) at Buck's Homestead. This is a beautiful farmhousethat is filled with memorabilia of its former dairy days. The room was great and Joan has thought of all the amenities you might have forgotten and need in the bathroom like toothbrushes, health and shower products etc. Our room looked out on a field of sweet corn with the workers bringing in the harvest. Breakfast was hearty and for antiquing and lunch was perfect too. Thanks again for a marvelous stay.…

Memorial Day Weekend -- May 31, 2014

We stayed at Buck's Homestead over Memorial Day weekend. We felt welcome and catered to throughout our entire stay. We were greeted with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a flower from the garden in our room. The Queen room was airy and spacious. The view overlooks the landscaped property and a wide open picturesque field across the street. Much thought went into making sure we had everything we needed. Coffee and tea, extra towels, bathrobes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, extra pillows and much more! The bed was so comfortable that we didn't want to leave. We spent time relaxing in the rocking chairs on the front porch and sitting in the gazebo. Breakfast in the morning was amazing! The table was decorated with red, white and blue fresh flowers for Memorial Day and our own bubbles. Fresh fruit, yogurt parfait, coffee, french toast, warm maple syrup and brown sugared bacon was out of this world! We sat on the screened in porch and took in the peacefulness of the beautiful gardens and yard. We are excited to return and spend more time enjoying all that the inn has to offer!…



Charm in Abundance -- November 17, 2013

I grew up in Montgomery and staying at Buck's Homestead I felt like I stepped back in time without losing any of our modern amenities. The owner, Joan Buck Smith, grew up in this very home and I loved reading her family history. She is the consummate hostess and the FOOD is PHENOMENAL. She has thought of everything you could possibly want or need and is a treasure trove of information about the area. I give Buck's my highest recommendation.

Welcoming and relaxing -- July 14, 2013

Upon arrival we were greeted by Joan and given some fresh homemade chocolate cookies and offered a cold glass of iced tea. The room was very comfortable and clean and felt like you were home. Bathroom was clean with plenty of towels and extra toiletries. We even had bathrobes! Breakfast was outstanding each of the three days that we stayed. Joan is a terrific hostess and will direct you to local attractions. Would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. Thank You, Joan!

Anniversary Weekend -- October 2013

Michael and I went to Buck's Homestead B&B last August for a belated celebration of our 21st wedding anniversary. We found Joan to be a most welcoming hostess who provided a lovely breakfast. The accommodations were comfortable beyond our expectations and we never wanted for anything during our stay. Coffee and tea were readily available as were luxurious towels. Our room and bathroom were impeccably clean. An above-ground pool provided refreshment for us at the end of our day of exercise.
The Montgomery area is terrific for jogging and hiking. We look forward to our next visit.

Highly recommend! -- March 15, 2013

This is an exceptional facility, comfortably furnished,
a screened in porch to relax on warm summer evenings, a well maintained pool, an extensive library of current movies and always has absolutely outstanding breakfasts! Joan is the most gracious hostess assisting with the needs of her guests. We have stayed here several times and have always found the service to
be exceptional.

Great B&B, Wonderful hostess -- April 25, 2013

The bedrooms were very cozy, very clean and very comfortable. In addition there are 2 very clean bathrooms for the non-suite guests. These bathrooms are clean, were on the same floor as your bedroom and had a lot of amenities. Towels galore! Let me put it this way, if you forget to bring lotion, toothpaste or even a toothbrush...it's there. The owner and hostess of the place, Joan Smith, is such a sweet, thoughtful lady. We were presented with cookies upon arrival and were sent home with more cookies and banana bread upon check out. Breakfast was, of course, included with what you paid for and it wasn't something to sniff about either. She really knows how to entertain and seems to truly care about the guests (knowing that we were coming with kids, Joan even shopped for juice boxes and yogurt). The breakfast consisted of carved pineapples, homemade parfait, a delicious French toast and bacon. Of course the menu changes but all were delicious. Thanks, Joan!
