Built in 1785, The Van Schaack House Bed & Breakfast (reputed to be the first law school in New York State) has retained the beauty and elegance of its time — much like the quaint countryside town of Kinderhoook, NY where the mansion stands. Located among the unspoiled landscape of Columbia County between Hudson (we're minutes away from numerous antiques shoppes) and Albany (theatre, ballet, pro and college sports and the city's active nightlife), The Van Schaack House Inn has entertained many distinguished guests over time. John Jay, Gouverneur Morris, Judge Benson, Aaron Burr, Martin Van Buren, Washington Irving and others have all at one time or another enjoyed the comforts this grand mansion provides.
The Van Schaack House Bed & Breakfast offers four elegant accomodations for those visiting the Hudson River Valley of New York. Guests will be greeted by antique furnishings and beautifully landscaped grounds, as well as an onsite gym, library, and computer room. Enjoy a full breakfast served fresh each morning. The Van Schaack House B & B is within easy driving distance of Tanglewood, Rhinebeck and Saratoga. Come and visit the Hudson Valley, Columbia County, and Kinderhook, New York, and step back in time at the Van Schaack House.
