Recently, we went over the river and through the woods to what your grandmother’s place would be like if your grandma had an awesome 70-acre estate overlooking the river, complete with a spa and llama farm.

The Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa in Milton, NY is a 13-room, upscale B&B on the Hudson River that offers a really great (and romantic!) getaway just 70 miles outside of New York City, particularly in the fall, just as the leaves or turning, or in the spring, when you can take advantage of the property’s nearby hiking trails.

On our visit, we stayed in the Juniper suite (pictured above), a room with a king-sized bed, fireplace, two balconies, whirlpool tub and, sadly, one poorly placed curtain-less window directly in front of the toilet. But that’s about the only disparaging thing we have to say about this place—a place who’s owners are so darn thoughtful they provide guests with free bread to feed to the ducks that hang out in the small river that flows through the property.

WiFi Hell Under the Red Roof

The whole point to having WiFi is to allow guests independence in their room. Independence and freedom to surf the web and get their work done without hassle or ever even leaving the bed. Yet calling the front desk to find out what is wrong with the WiFi seems so often to be a necessary part of that "free wireless," whether it's to obtain a password or in this case at the Red Roof Inn & Suites in Milton, Florida, explain what WiFi is to hotel staff.

I could not get a wireless connection (free) on my laptop. I gave up my attempt when the front desk attendant did not know what "WIFI" and "hotspot" were. I was able to connect via phone, dial-up.

Interestingly enough, at the time we tried to access this hotel's website, its server was unavailable.
