Inn Description: Hilltop House was built in 1909 by a single stockbroker who lived in NYC and weekended here in Amenia with his friends. The living and dining rooms are paneled with chestnut wood and a large stone fireplace is the first thing you'll see as you walk through our door. You can picture a group of gentlemen smoking cigars and drinking bourbon long ago. The dining room opens up onto a lovely screened in porch where breakfast is served, weather permitting. The porch wraps around three sides of the house and is a lovely place to have a glass of wine or read a book. Free wifi throughout.
