Established in 1994, Botsford Briar Bed and Breakfast is located in Beacon, New York. Set high on a hill in Beacon’s Historical District, it is a quiet, relaxing spot with remarkable views of the Hudson River. It is conveniently located within ten minutes walking distance of Main Street, Metro-North, and Dia.
Botsford Briar is a beautifully restored high Queen Anne Victorian designed by Arnout Cannon, the architect responsible for the 1888 redesign of Wilderstein Historic Site in Rhinebeck, NY. Built around 1889, it features a turret that reaches up through the three stories. The deck, with breathtaking views of the Hudson River, was designed and built in 2008 by Innkeeper Charles Fincham. High ceilings, rich woodworking, and ornamental fireplaces add to Botsford Briar’s Victorian charm.
The guest rooms are decorated with antiques in a simple Victorian style, each with its own private bath. A continental breakfast is brought to your room between 8:00 and 9:30 am. It includes coffee or tea, choice of juice, assorted bread basket, and fresh fruit plate.
Botsford Briar is a perfect location to have a small wedding ceremony. There is a beautiful, private outdoor space that is available for up to 25 guests.
