Arrival Date

As we inch closer and closer to summer’s arrival, it’s impossible not to become enlivened at the thought of attending the ultra-popular, long-awaited Hudson Valley Hot Air Balloon Festival in New York’s picturesque Dutchess County. This annual Hudson Valley gathering is surging ahead toward its 29th rendition. It remains one of the most alluring events for returning guests here at Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn, “the oldest inn in America.” Beekman Arms, in particular, was established in 1766. Thus, it remains a long-lasting Dutchess County staple. Every July, in the golden days that follow the celebration of our nation’s independence, tens of thousands of people congregate in the rolling hillside along the north edge of peaceful Rhinebeck, NY, to observe over 100 vibrant, uniquely-designed hot air balloons drift through the early-evening, mid-summer sky.

Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn is nestled in the historic Hudson River town of Rhinebeck, NY. The town itself rests along the eastern edge of the Catskill Mountains. Yes, Rhinebeck boasts Colonial architecture and quintessential Dutchess County charm, but it also provides travelers with sprawling views of the neighboring mountains. Beekman Arms, the oldest inn in America, typically attracts history buffs, foodies, and loving couples from New York City. However, it’s not uncommon for an adventurous type or two to utilize Beekman Arms as their hub for mid-day exploration. In fact, many of the best hikes in the Catskills are within 40 minutes of our historic respite.
