Welcome to the Inn at Twaalfskill, an elegant, intimate retreat tucked into the peaceful Hudson Valley countryside.
Origin of the Name Inn at Twaalfskill
The Inn takes its name from the Twaalfskill Creek, a brook that meanders in front of the spacious property. (The Dutch translation of Twaalfskill means 12 Stripe Bass Creek.) Rambling acreage features perennial gardens, century-old oak trees and a serene porch. On cool summer evenings with the windows open, you can sometimes hear the brook from inside the house.
History of Our Inn
The Inn at Twaalfskill was constructed in 1902 as the home of Harcourt Pratt, a local businessman and representative in the United States Congress. The house was purchased in the 1950s by the innkeeper's grandparents and remains in the family to the present day.
In 2005, the building underwent major reconstruction, modernizing the kitchen, plumbing, and key building systems. At the same time, the inn was given a cosmetic overhaul with special attention paid to retaining original architectural details. Attentively decorated in a rich, warm style, the public rooms and guest rooms evoke European and French country influences.
