Hidden in the heart of the Hudson Valley, just a 90-minute train ride north of New York City, lies Rhinebeck, a historic, undeniably romantic small town that hugs the serene Hudson River. Rhinebeck is home to the oldest inn in America: Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn. During all four seasons, this picturesque destination attracts thousands of couples in need of a well-deserved, long-overdue romantic getaway. Beekman Arms retains its original colonial charm while also providing sophisticated modern amenities just steps from the town’s central shopping and dining mecca. In fact, Beekman Arms has remained one of the most desirable romantic getaways in New York for two centuries, even amid winter’s snowy peak.
Historical, Romantic Getaways in New York
Very few winter weekend getaways can match Rhinebeck’s unique blend of historical significance, romantic allure, and immaculate natural beauty. As you can imagine, a lot of tireless work has gone into the restoration of Beekman Arms. The inn was established 10 years before the Declaration of Independence was published. And, despite necessary renovations, the original late-18th-century charm remains intact. During the winter months, the peak season crowds disperse, providing the community with a welcoming, peaceful allure. Couples often stroll through the quiet estate, hand in hand, to admire the old-world architecture and the Hudson Valley’s frosty elegance.
The Tavern at Beekman Arms
The world-class culinary scene in Rhinebeck continues to entice sweethearts in search of gourmet cuisine and fine wine in a sophisticated yet historical setting. And there’s no better locale in town to dine with your partner than right here at The Tavern at Beekman Arms. Everything from the visually-striking plate presentation to the worldly waiting staff aligns
with any type of couples retreat in New York. Start your lavish meal with escargot and a bottle of wine from the Finger Lakes before indulging in Faroe Island salmon or an eight-ounce filet mignon. Our culinary team only uses local products from the likes of Migliorelli Farm, Hudson Valley Cattle Company, and Bread Alone Bakery. Before or after dinner, visit Keegan Ales, HETTA, or Taconic Distillery for an artisanal adult beverage.
History, Adventure, and Relaxation
A lot of romantic getaways in New York lack nearby adventure and sumptuous relaxation. But, luckily for you and your sweetheart, Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn is minutes from the Hudson Valley’s prettiest outdoor destinations, and we also provide an array of luxuriant on-site amenities, such as in-room spa treatments. We’re minutes away from Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, West Point, Storm King Art Center, and, of course, Woodstock. Many couples enjoy antiquing through various ancient artifacts at the Antique Market, with stops at the Rhinebeck Artist Shop, Winter Sun & Summer Moon, Samuel’s Sweet Shop, and Paper Trail. And no midwinter couples retreat in New York is complete without at least half of a day underneath falling snow amid glorious Hudson Valley forestry. Adventurous couples can go sledding at Burger Hill Park, snowshoeing in Ferncliff Forest, or cross-country skiing at Mountain Trails.
