The fiance and I are looking at Benmarl Winery this weekend and my parents are VERY concerned about area hotels. I’m trying to do a search online for the nearest hotels to the winery (in Marlboro, NY) and it’s showing hotels in Poughkeepsie. In terms of actual distance, Poughkeepsie is under 5 miles from Marlboro, but in terms of DRIVING distance, it’s much farther. Anyone have any ideas?

We were married in the Hudson Valley and we also attended another wedding at Benmarl. Both we and the other couple suggested Fishkill–there’s a ton of hotels there.

Poughkeepsie hotels are going to be closer (10-15min), but cost your guests $1.00 bridge toll. Fishkill much further away (30min) and also a $1.00 toll. Did you try Highland or New Paltz? They are both towns on the same side of the river as Marlboro and about 15-20 minutes away respectivly.
Benmarl is wonderful and gorgeous. We held a surpise 60, 70, 80 birthday party there for my father and my in-laws. They REALLY enjoyed it. Best of luck…OH! and if you’re getting married in the spring-early fall, beware of bees. Just FYI. 🙂

there are lots of hotels & bed & breakfasts by stewart airport, in the Newburgh area, all of which are probably 15-20 mins south of marlboro. you can also try the hotels in middletown, though they are a little further afield (maybe 30-35 mins away). though the owner of a b&b we stay at frequently in Montgomery prefered the newburgh area hotels to middletown, for what it’s worth.
