Hudson has some great small boutique hotels, B&B’s and inns from which to stay and explore the area:
The Inn at Hudson: This is a lovely B&B/inn in a wonderfully restored old mansion in downtown Hudson. It is a convenient walk to shopping and restaurants. My room was large and beautifully decorated. The public spaces are equally elegant. The breakfasts were really excellent with several choices to choose from each morning. What a great find! You feel like you are living in a different age. It is now under different ownership, but still getting very good reviews.
Other good options in town include:
The Mount Merino Manor B&B is also highly rated. It is located in a home from 1870 on 100 wooded acres outside of town.
I also just learned about the new WM. Farmer and Son Boarding & Barroom at 120 S. Front. Street. This boutique property has beautifully designed rooms and a restaurant, bar and coffee shop.
