Bed & Breakfast
Come join us for “A Night at the Museum!” The Den of Marbletown features over-night accommodations for one couple or one family (with an over-flow room available to rent if you are traveling with others). This means no noisy neighbors, if you prefer quiet evenings, or if you have members in your party that haven’t mastered their “indoor voices” at night yet, you won’t need to worry about disturbing other guests.
We’re putting the last touch on the rooms now, so photos will be available soon.
The Master Bedroom Suite (“The Wallpaper Room”): is your spacious home away from home. It has views of lovely pastures and barns out of all three windows. It has a queen bed, reading sconces, a writer’s desk, two luggage racks, free wi-fi, a reading chair, cable television. We have a “pack-and-play” crib available on request.
There is marvelous old closet that connects the master bedroom to the kid’s “double decker bedroom.”
The Double Decker Room: has two twin beds set up as a pull-out captain’s bed + a loft bed. The mini-fridge is in this room, along with a few drawers for personal belonging. We’ve noticed that seem to watch less television and spend more time on their devices, so the beds are each setup with easy access to plug in and play their own technology, and the television is in the parent’s room instead. If you want your kids to have acces to their own television, please consider renting the extra room as a television lounge for them. The double decker room also has a small table for games and art activities your family can explore in “the Marvelous Old Closet.”
The Marvelous Old Closet: is full of amenities for you to enjoy, including music and white noise machines, ipod/ipad speakers and alarm clock, a radio alarm clock, a portable type-writer, a refrigerator, classic board games, wooden blocks, matchbox cars and track, a miniature doll house with furnishing, arts and crafts supplies, pick-your-own-night-light, My Little Ponies, and an assortment of tech wires and chargers if you’ve forgotten any.
The Extra Room Available (“The Pink Sofa Room”): Do you need some extra space? Although the master suite is very spacious already, if desired, you may rent a second overnight room for other family/friends if you are traveling with a larger party. This room has a queen-sized sofa bed, cable television, a dvd player, and an X-box. This is perfect for mini-family reunions, friends traveling to a wedding together, or a slumber parties for a group of kids, or simply an extra room for your own family to use and enjoy. Please note the second room would share your bathroom; that is why we never rent the rooms to two separate parties on any given night.
Delicious, Fresh, Local Food
Breakfast: is included with your stay at the Den of Marbletown. Steve has professional culinary training and has worked in restaurants in New York and Santa Fe. We have an assortment of continental and cooked-to-order options, including fresh eggs from our very own free-range, organic hens, and other local and seasonal delights. Once you make your reservation, we’ll find out more details about your preferred menu and meal time so that we can customize the experience for you as much as possible.
Baked Goods: We thrilled to serve traditional and gluten-free baked goods from Lisa Jones of Hudson Valley Food Matters. Lisa has 25 years of experience as a food producer, specializing in local ingredient, small-batch, from-scratch baked goods.
Picnics-To-Go: Let us know if you’d like to order a picnic to-go. Prices and menu options are available in the guest suite.
Self-Serve Snack Store: If you are hungry anytime during the day or night, we have an assortment food, chips, goodies, yogurt, baked items, drinks, fruit, trailmix, mini-bar cocktails, and even frozen dinners for you to graze on. We have a “square shop” self-serve, check-out system set up so you can purchase items any time on your own.
Parties/Meetings: The Den is an elegant yet affordable setting for meetings and parties, including client meetings, birthday parties, tea parties, breakfast meetings, and community meetings. For example, The Marbletown Civic Association meets in the breakfast room at The Den the second Tuesday each month at 7:00 pm.
Guest Arrivals: We guarantee your room will be available for check-in at 2:00pm. We will ask you for an approximate hour of arrival. This helps us to plan our day and be well prepared for your arrival. If you believe you will be earlier or later than the time in which we discussed, just give us a call.
Guest Departures: We ask that you depart the room by 11:00am on the day of your departure.
Cancellations: Because of our small size, we are greatly affected by untimely cancellations; therefore we require at least fourteen days notice of cancellation. After that, 50% of the room charge will be collected.
Pets: Sorry, no pets.
