A few miles from Rhinebeck, NY,right off highway Rte 9, perched up a hill, sits The Belvedere Mansion. It keeps good company as The Vanderbilt and The Rossevelt are right down the road....though one can sleep overnight at The Belvedere..and that is what we did,this summer, one late June Tuesday night . We were the only guests there that evening and next day and had the whole place to ourslves. I felt like Gatsby after everyone went home..Dare I say the "Shining" word? Though I did feel like I was in this movie..It was Mysterious. Old, Creepy, Magical & Mystical (see claw tub bathroom) Cozy. Lovely,..Full Breakfast included..xo

"It had to be you".....Nicole & Tom were married on a December evening in Manhattan.Toasts were made with good friends and family...and lot's of dancing to an old style "crooner" band under the looming lights of the Chrysler building...The score from "Manhattan" played in my head the whole evening...Thank you Francesco Mastalia for helping me photograph this wonderful evening...xo Susan
