How to Get There
Second stay at this historic B&B. I am still maintaining my previous rating. Friendly, welcoming staff, beautiful, historic decoration throughout with attention to detail. Generous rooms appointed with historic furniture and modern amenities. Free fast WiFi. Free parking. Generous hot and cold breakfast. Good value. Will be back on the next trip to Bethlehem:-)
I highly recommend staying here. The room was quaint and cozy with everything you need; hangers, iron, hair dryer etc. The breakfast was all home made and delicious. There are lovely places on the porch to sit, visit and read.
We spent just one night at the Sayre Mansion on what I hope will be the first of many visits. One of our party requires a wheelchair. Historic properties are not usually possible for us but the Sayre Mansion has a first floor room which can be accessed through a door off a little patio at ground level. From this room the wheelchair was able to fit through the door and in to the pubic rooms. The bathroom was equipped with grab bars and a shower stool. For those of you still reading who are not traveling with guest in a wheelchair there is everything you could want in a small independent hotel. The Sayre Mansion has friendly staff, comfortable accommodations, a delicious cooked breakfast and two secret weapons.... the first is Bradford the French Bulldog who greets guests in reception and for those who come in late and ask politely... a cookie warm off the rack! Can you imagine? The staff member asked if we minded that she was in the kitchen making cookies! Highly recommended.
I hate hotels. Especially, when I'm traveling with a young child and a snoring husband. It gives me great anxiety to try to coordinate and manage (aka poke 80 times during the night) a snoring husband who might wake up a light sleeper in addition to interrupting any sleep I might be able to get. At home I can exile to a sofa during a bad snoring patch, so I’m always nervous going away.
Enter Sayre Mansion...it was just one night so we splurged a lil on a suite to make sure we had a getaway-from-the-snoring room and boy was it fantastic. We booked the carriage house hayloft as it looked like there was an extra space for our kiddo. This place was loverly. King sized bed and a separate living room with a daybed for my little one. So he was far enough away from snoring and close enough for me to keep a nervous eye on him (I’m new to all this travel with kids stuff). A fridge and microwave in case I had to cook an emergency dinner to supplement snubbed restaurant options by said kiddo.
I had such a good night of sleep…and then my kiddo woke up so excited to be somewhere new at 5:30 a.m. Yay!!! But they had cable and I save cartoons for such sleeping emergencies.
Another thing I don’t look forward to If we stayed at a generic hotel, we'd be stuck inside after we finished doing whatever we traveled to do. So I usually clean and pack for our return and my child gets cabin-fever and goes nuts. That’s not fun for a kid OR a mom. Here we were able to take in the cool night air on the lawn outside our room while enjoying a pint of ice cream. There was also a funny little gentleman dog, Bradford, that kept my little one company while we caught fireflies in their back yard.
This was the first time in a few years we've been anywhere other than relatives houses and this actually felt like a relaxing vacation (a condensed version but still…). I’ll never forget Timothy, the manager, either. We would easily claim him as one of our new friends.
Breakfast was simple and relaxed and perfect. We watched a family of doves perched cozily on an outside chandelier while sipping a perfect cup of coffee. The coffee...was…great. BTW, I want more. The room(s) were so comfortable. It felt like a home. And they had Beekman 1802 products! Bonus!
AND…I just realized we didn’t leave a tip for the housekeeping. Oh, for pete’s sake…I’m so embarrassed.
Well....there is a reason the bed and breakfast option is rarely something I select.
The dog was the highlight...WOW...I have to have 200 characters for this to be posted!! 200 characters about the Sayre?? Sadness
