Hotels in Catskills + Hudson Valley
There are many excellent luxury hotels in the Hudson Valley that serve as the best escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Whether you plan to spend a relaxing weekend in or crash after a long day of exploring, there is a Hudson Valley hotel for everyone.
Located in Rhinebeck, the Beekman Arms Inn is a fun space that has been open since 1766. It is America’s oldest continuously operated hotel. At one point, George Washington slept here! The property has evolved since those days with modern features such as air conditioning and private bathrooms.
Built in 1911, Glenmere Mansion is one of the best hotels in the Hudson Valley. This pink Tuscan-style estate overlooks Glenmere Lake. The 150-acre estate was once the country retreat of the Goelet Family. It has since morphed into a fine hotel offering a relaxing spa, formal gardens and recreational activities. With just 18 rooms, the quaint space is the easiest way to get away from all the noise of the nearby city.
The three-bedroom guesthouse at Apple Pond Farm comes with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of toys that will delight the kids. Rooms from $420 (five people, two nights).
The highlight of this animal farm is Apple, the potbellied pig whose bristly coat is an almost meditative pleasure to pet and who may very well try to eat you (in a good-natured piggy way). Human accommodations are entirely unpretentious, with rooms facing out to the distant peaks.
Built and designed by its owners, the bed and breakfast has an eccentric Victorian vibe with rooms full of antiques.
Don’t let the frivolous pink façade of Lefèvre House fool you. Behind the Victorian frippery is a sleek, European-style inn. The 1870’s farmhouse in New Paltz, New York, a funky mountain town 90 minutes north of Manhattan, puts a contemporary spin on the entire B&B stereotype.
Originally built as a rectory, this restored Victorian inn with five guest rooms is within walking distance of Warren Street's plentiful antiques shops and boutiques.
After a five-year renovation, the 1854 Rhinecliff Hotel is once again a bustling hub. The nine rooms have balconies that seem to float over the Hudson. Fair warning: they also hover over Rhinecliff Station’s railroad tracks, so be prepared to hear the whistle blow.
The quirky property in Rhinebeck has been hosting guests since 1766 (yes, George Washington slept here), and though modernized, it retains its original plank floors and oak beams.
Stay at this five-room Victorian B&B.
Set on 100 acres; the seven guest rooms have antique furnishings and some have fireplaces.
Soak up the woods and the sounds of a nearby creek while reclining on the porch of the tidy and tranquil property.
The converted motor lodge added two spas and nine rooms with interiors inspired by 1960’s TV classics like I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched.
