Since it opened in the summer of 2009, the Bedford Post Inn has been hopping. That might be because Richard Gere and hotelier Russell Hernandez are the innkeepers of the eight-room B&B, or maybe it’s the buzzworthy Campagna restaurant, which has become a posh clubhouse for the A-list locals since Chef Michael White and the Altamarea Group joined the team. But for out-of-towners, it’s the fact that Bedford Post Inn makes for a quick escape — about an hour’s drive — from the bustle of Manhattan. The calming country vibe is matched by the requisite urban/rustic details, like memorable farm-fresh cuisine and subtle, top-notch design.
Bed and Bath
The rooms themselves are done in muted shades of gray, off-white and light blue, grounded with reclaimed wood flooring and appointed with vintage Audubon prints and objects from local antique shops. They feel like a stylish friend’s beautifully decorated country home. Bathrooms are done up in marble and shades of gray and blue, with hand made claw foot tubs (in most) and specially commissioned botanic toiletries by Sponge.
The heart of the property is Campagna restaurant, where local socialites and visiting out-of-towners sip cocktails before dinner. The restaurant opens at 5:30 p.m. and continues buzzing all night long. Chef PJ Calapa and his team use local ingredients to create an eclectic menu of Italian style cuisine. In the morning, after a stroll through the grounds and a stop at the reflecting pool, an hourlong yoga class is the perfect way to start the day. Afterward, pop into the laid-back Barn cafe, where the homemade granola and organic muffins can easily be packed to go, perhaps to the buttery leather armchair in your room or a pillowy lounger near the outdoor fireplace.
In the Area
Immerse yourself in nature at the 4,000 acres of the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation for walking, hiking and fly fishing excursions, then treat yourself to a wide assortment of cheeses and pâtés, and made-to-order sandwiches at the Bedford Gourmet. For a dose of culture, the Katonah Museum of Art, one of the most celebrated small museums in the country, hosts several major exhibitions each year.
How to Get There
Cozy, comfortable, kind and amazing gem in Bedford! Home away from home with A+ concierge service! The amazing staff helped me to make my special milestone birthday a reality! Nancy, the manager, went out of her way to make everything perfect for my sister and me. Elizabeth, Katherine, and the rest of the staff were so accommodating, helpful, kind and knowledgeable! We can’t wait to return!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Bedford Post Inn!!! We will definitely be back soon!!
Thank you Nancy! She upgraded us to a downstairs King room because my husband got lightheaded going up stairs. She kept us informed on the Inn and shared with us so much wonderful information. She also got one of the kitchen help to give us a 'jump start' when we had a dead battery the morning of our departure. Very helpful and wonderful person...glad she is part of the Inn...this kind of service is much needed these days! Thanks again, Nancy!
We went to the Bedford Post Inn for dinner on a recent business trip. It is a quaint Inn with lots of ambience. Food was good and the service was friendly. It was little pricey and the offerings were limited.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Inn and ate dinner at the Farmhouse restaurant. We found our hotel accommodation quite comfortable. Our experience at the restaurant, however, was sub-par. The waiters and bar staff did not demonstrate the level of personal service, professionalism and knowledge of their restaurant that I expected from this restaurant.
Kudos & thanks all-around to staff and chef at The Barn for helping making my daughters 15th B-Day special and memorable. Monday, cold night in Westchester seeking high end comfy place for dinner, we selected The Bedford Post Inn, not having been there in awhile. we used to often for lunch. The Barn is a comfortable, charming 35-40 seat attractive restaurant/cafe with a nice big fireplace, wood floors & charming beamed ceilings surrounded by floor to ceiling windows. (The main restaurant is closed on Mondays') Not a problem as we preferred a "low-key" on a Monday night. Made rez on line and spelled out our needs and explaining it was my daughters birthday. They could not have been kinder, more thoughtful or generous. Welcomed with a smile, we sat comfortably by the warm crackling fire and drank a delicious deep Cabernet by the glass that kept flowing. The Host is a very friendly accommodating, experienced in hospitality gent from the Islands who clearly enjoys pleasing his guests. There were very few ppl in the restaurant that night, so we basically had it to ourselves. Very attentive nice server fellow.The chef in view, kindly sent us over some delicious roasted artichoke hearts that we quickly consumed. Our entrees, all delicious fish dishes were served quickly and were nice and hot. The ingredients were simple and flavorful. Unprompted they sent us over a wonderful birthday cake for us all to enjoy. Treated us like Kings and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thanks again. be back soon -
Suggestion: Nice to try for early morning high end breakfast-see menu.
