In 1901, the house was built for George Crippin as a family home. A ‘rags to riches’ story, as told by its interior light-colored woodwork and placement of windows for sunlight to brighten different sections of the mansion from dawn until dusk, hence, it right- fully earned its nickname ‘Sunnyside House’. Later, the house was lived in by the Furness family, was a Skidmore College dorm for thirty years, and was State owned before it opened to the public as a Bed and Breakfast in 1992.
In 2004, renovations were made to the house and the grounds (on over one acre) landscaped with romantic roses, perennials, herbs, fountains and sitting areas. Today, the design is still evident, and with the continuous attention to preservation and detailed craftsmanship, the mansion continues to be a remarkable tribute to its era. The wrap around porch boasts a quiet haven and the opportunity to share in the rich history of the mansion and area. Relax in one of the spacious guest rooms, offering a variety of décor and antique furnishings, each with private bathrooms, cable television, refrigerator and high speed wireless internet. Breakfast is served daily; cooked fresh to order, serving pancakes, omelets, eggs, variety of baked goods, fresh fruits, granola and yogurts. We invite you to experience and enjoy this hidden gem of the past.
