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).
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.
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.
Stay at this five-room Victorian B&B.
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 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.
At Kate’s Lazy Meadow Motel, the quirky personality of Kate Pierson, one of the lead singers for the B-52’s, shines through in every detail.
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.
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.
Set on 100 acres; the seven guest rooms have antique furnishings and some have fireplaces.
