Welcome to Wyndbourne!
Sitting high on a hill at the
edge of the Adirondack foothills, at Wyndbourne Bed & Breakfast we offer travelers a convenient and lovely location
for enjoying the natural beauty and cultural opportunities of upstate New York. Minutes from Saratoga Springs and close to
the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George, Wyndbourne’s location is perfect for enjoying numerous exciting activities
from hiking, swimming, skiing and whitewater rafting, to fine dining, concerts, ballet, or a day at the track.
We look forward to meeting
Wyndbourne a wonderful spot for those seeking a glimpse of
an earlier, simpler time and the tranquility of a country setting. In keeping with the age of our home, we have
kept it deliberately no-tech. You will not find in-room telephones, TVs or anything much in the way of external
entertainment. There is wi-fi access and cable TV in our keeping room with a selection of DVDs (and British-flavored
VCRs) to occupy our long northeast winter evenings. Ours is not an ideal location for children or young adults
easily given to boredom. It's great, though, for both the young and less young who may be fascinated with
books, art and have a reverence for things old. We have lots of both!
Nancy Caparulo, primary Innkeeper
and cook, is interested in the cuisines of many cultures. A former caterer and administrative assistant, she gladly
dons an apron for breakfast duty. Among her passions is the growing movement toward locally sustainable agriculture
and organic food production. Your breakfast may include local free-range and hormone/antibiotic-free eggs, sausage from
grass pastured animals, granola home-made with organic ingredients, vegetables from Wyndbourne's large organic garden,
and apples from 200 year-old trees on the old farm property. Several coffee makers are pressed into service
to provide your bottomless cup with a brew from fair trade, freshly ground coffee beans. Guests often comment on the
coffee we serve. You may wish to explore the possibility of your own monthly, fresh coffee delivery from our source,
Ahrre's Coffee Roastery in Westfield, New Jersey.

Innkeeper and award-winning artist, Ralph Caparulo, welcomes
guest visits to his studio at Wyndbourne. The studio is a fascinating mix of industrial machinery, found objects,
library [you'll begin to sense a theme here] and works in progress. Constructivist sculptures, collages, turned wooden
ware and novelty villages are offered for sale. With prior notice, guests may take a watercolor or drawing class
in the studio - or learn to use a wood lathe.
