The Reiss House Bed & Breakfast

The Reiss House is not a Bed and Breakfast in the conventional sense. In addition to ‘traditional’ overnight guests, the Reiss House welcomes small retreats, private meetings, and music and art conventions.

The three suites have a total of six bedrooms with queen size beds. The ‘Cathedral’, our largest suite, is an 800 sqft attic with a large living room, two bedrooms and provides absolute privacy for 4-6 patrons. The Duchess’ & Princess are two charming rooms, both have balconies, facing south and east, decorated with antique German flower paintings, antique rugs and antique furniture. The Emperor and Knight’s are the rooms on the opposing side of the house, with golden color and majesty, and wall prints of the royal times of central Europe and Germany, and books from far away.

A delicious German breakfast with freshly made house-made German rolls and whole-grain bread is served every morning between 8:30h and 10:30h in the Tea Room, which also functions as a meeting and dining room. A fine, catered dinner a la carte is available for the hotel guests if desired.

The grand heritage room is ideal to lounge and listen to music, be it a live musician playing the amazing Baby Grand, or from the large selection of classical, Jazz or contemporary music. A pool billiard table becomes the center of attention at night.

In the warmer season, the porch, the balconies, the fire pit and large yard are very inviting to just hang out.

Hiking the AdirondacksThe Adirondack Park in Northern New York is home to more than 2,000 miles of hiking trails – traversing the highest point in New York State, all the way to the southern edges of Lake Champlain.

This summer, experience the thrill of discovery on an Adirondack hiking trail – from a trek into an old “ghost town,” to the waterfalls of the St. Lawrence Seaway – find unique Adirondack attractions and family-friendly outdoor recreation.

The Top Seven Adirondack Region Hiking Experiences in 2012:

1. History, Mystery and Lore: Bonaparte’s Cave State Forest. Located in the Adirondack Tughill Region near Harrisville, the area was named after Napoleon Bonaparte’s brother who escaped to New York after the Emperor had been arrested and exiled to Elba. Rumor and historic fact merge into local lore, and legend says that Napoleon’s brother eluded capture by hiding in caves around one of the three state forest ponds. The forest spans more than 1,400 acres and includes excellent trout fishing on Green Pond.
