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 stayed at Tiger House for a nice weekend in Hudson; it was my partners birthday and wanted to do something unusual and special for him.
At the first moment we entered we were greeted with genuine friendliness and cheer. Tiger House is a historic mansion located within easy walking from the main street of the town; the home itself is well cared for with 'pride', comfort and special detail. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was served in an elegant dining room, and the food was delicious. There was always someone available, usually one of the two owners or other staff that made the entire stay very welcoming -honestly one felt like being with family.
My thanks to the owners and staff of Tiger House; we will return.
Tiger House was just what we needed for our getaway from everyday life. Expansive yet intimate spaces, delicious continental breakfasts with the surprise of eggs and bacon one morning, and a great excursion tip from the knowledgeable manager. The house is a wonder itself.
I can not say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. The room was spacious and clean. The fireplace and soaking tub made for an amazing experience in a gorgeous mansion. Breakfast was delicious and all locally sourced. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. We will most definitely be staying again!
The house is a remarkable turn of the century building that has had an amazing period restoration. It's in the best part of town surrounded by a collection of 200+ year old mansion homes.Sitting just a few blocks from the halfway point of Warrens St, Tiger House is literally only minutes away from everything.
The service was great and the breakfasts simple and tasty.
What a lovely place to stay! Tiger House is a delightful marriage of old school charm and modern amenities. We stayed in the Blue Room, which I understand to be the barest-bones option, but it was just perfect. To top it all off, the breakfast is truly out of this world. I can't recommend Tiger House highly enough.
