Feast your eyes on opulent turn-of-the-century art and interiors at The Inn at Hudson, owned by two former new-wave musicians with impeccable taste. Designed in 1903, this Dutch-Jacobean mansion shows off features like exquisite antiques, rich wood paneling, a plaster frieze, Hudson Valley portraits and stained-glass windows, throughout its dining room, solarium, library and individually decorated accommodations. The complimentary daily breakfast is just as grand, placing unexpected twists on indulgent sweet and savory favorites – so delight your tastebuds, at this luxe getaway, as well.
Once you’ve marveled at every sumptuous architectural detail and sampled omelettes, pancakes or whatever other treats are on the menu that day, take a walk around the neighborhood. As noted by The New York Times in 2016, Hudson was recently revitalized and is in the midst of “an elegant transformation” that has made it a popular weekend spot for vacationing New Yorkers. Discover James Beard Award-nominated restaurants, charming bakeries, shops and galleries, or continue touring historic homes in the area – two artists’ residences turned house-museums are within a 10-minute drive.
Rooms and suites
Accommodations are individually named and decorated, in the same rich style as the inn’s common areas. All offer en-suite bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen cable TVs with movie channels and massage services (fees apply).The Blue room is pretty, petite and packed with period details. Its soft hues and airy atmosphere make it a popular choice among returning guests.Situated on the second floor in the mansion’s northeast corner, The Cocoa room is roomy and elegant. A large bay window lets the natural light flood in. The antique mahogany bed is a queen-size, and artwork adorns the walls. By night, you can warm up around the gas fireplace, which is just one opulent addition, alongside plush oriental rugs and antique lamps. The White room boasts a newly renovated shower; a ground-floor location in the mansion’s southeast corner, near the library, dining room and solarium; and century-old details: stained-glass windows, Adams marble on the mantel and intricate carvings on the 19th-century black-walnut four-poster bed are just a few. Recently redecorated Terrace suites are where the innkeepers stay during the winter season. They’re perched on the second floor and comprise a king bedroom and a smaller second bedroom with a double-sized pullout couch and garden-view outdoor area.
Hudson is a beautiful upstate destination in the valley of the same name, known for beautiful scenery and recently – as noted in the New York Times in 2016 – several James Beard Award-nominated restaurants. Its main street holds a bookstore and a number of cafés and bars and leads out to a park that affords sweeping river views. Within an easy drive are historic homes, a lighthouse and the Greenport Conservation area, while reaching Manhattan is as easy as walking to the Amtrak station and taking a two-hour train ride.
How to Get There
We were in Hudson the end of October, and stayed one night at this B&B. The mahogany paneling and center hall are beautiful, as is the entire simple house. The decor is shabby chic, but very clean. On the other hand...the lovely old shower was scalding hot and could not be adjusted, the hand held shower head was broken. the thermostat in the room was too hot and couldn’t be adjusted either, nor were the widows able to be opened. The manager gave us a fan to cool down the room. There was a pitcher of water and 2 glasses left on the desk, but there were no other ammenities in the bathroom, other than soap from a dispenser. The hair blower was stored in the top drawers of bureau inside a walk in closet..a treasure hunt to find. By all means stay here, the bed was very comfortable, and the cold weekday breakfast of toast, hard eggs, yogurt, fruit and cheese was adequate....just be prepared for the surprises.
This place is stunning. We stayed at Tiger House (Terrace Suite) this past weekend and used it for bridal party HQ and the wedding portraits. All of our friends remarked how cool it was. The service is quiet, friendly, and accommodating. The room was spacious and exquisitely appointed. We would definitely stay there again.
A ten minute walk from the train station and close to Warren Street, Tiger House is a pure delight. lt feels as if you've entered a home in East Egg. We stayed in the Green Room which was spacious and beautifully decorated. Huge claw tub with bath salts and chandeliers. The service was spot-on, including a daily happy hour and thoughtful breakfast. Would highly recommend for a night's escape.
We loved this place. Stayed in the Green Room which has a gorgeous bathroom, as well as a beautiful fireplace that warms the room in about 30 seconds! The moldings and window treatments are beautiful as well. The breakfast was incredible - we didn't know what to expect and then were thrilled when it was granola and homemade yogurt into eggs and delicious ham and then potatoes that were perfectly cooked into French toast that was legit. It was fantastic and needless to say, we didn't need lunch! Great place, the staff was all wonderful and the charm of the Tiger House is not easily matched! Would recommend it highly!!
As you pull into Tiger House you are overwhelmed by the beauty and stature of the property. You are greeted by your hosts and from that point on your needs are attended to. It’s a great place to relax and rewind. Breakfast was yummy as well.
