Built in 1911 for real estate maven Robert Goelet on a hill overlooking Glenmere Lake, the pink Tuscan-style mansion was never intended to blend in with its 3,000 wooded acres but rather to make a grand statement.
The 11 rooms mix old and new, as in flat-screen TV’s atop antique bureaus. Pub grub and a carved 19-foot-long bar make the downstairs tavern a neighborhood hot spot.
The old-fashioned inn opened as the Hotel Monaquaga in 1928.
The property was built in 1883 and underwent a restoration in 2010. The inn’s bar and restaurant feel almost Southern, like something out of a Mark Twain Mississippi tale. Only the sumptuous murals of nearby inlets done in the lush and romantic Hudson River School style remind you where you are.
The stone-and-timber modernized hunting lodge was built in the ‘60s. Ask for a room in the Stone Lodges with views of Hessian Lake.
Cross the Hudson on the nearby Beacon Bridge and dine 100 feet from the water at this Cold Spring property, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a hotel since 1832. The restaurant specializes in dry-aged prime beef.
