I'm heading up to my alma mater - Bard College - next weekend, and also to a Bar Mitzvah near Mahopac. Was hoping to settle at the Beekman Arms in Rhinebeck, but they're booked (always stared longingly at the place when I lived a block away in the early 90s. Could never dream of staying there then!)
Any suggestions for a good romantic inn with a great restaurant would be welcome. Not much into New England style kitsch-cute, or B&Bs.
