Great Lodging in Columbia County's Hudson River Valley - Surrounded by the Beautiful Catskill Mountains in the heart of Hudson, New York.
The Hudson River Valley has attracted visitors ever since Henry first sailed into its harbor. Along the 115 miles of Hudson River that lie between New York City and Albany are no less than 80 magnificent homes built by Vanderbilt's, Livingston's, Gould's, and Rockefeller's , as well as two Presidents, Martin VanBuren, an early resident of Hudson, and Franklin D. Roosevelt . Olana, the home of the artist Frederick Church,is located five minutes from downtown Hudson and is an icon of the Hudson Valley and a must see for all who visit here.
Hudson itself has been here for much of the history of this country. Located in the Catskill range of Columbia County, it was founded by a group of whalers from Nantucket. Fearing the British Navy would destroy their business during the Revolutionary War, they moved inland across the nearby Berkshire Hills to the deep waters of the Hudson River where they began building ships for international transport. Hudson grew to become the third official port of entry for the new United States. Today, up and down Warren Street, antique stores vie for attention with the architecture of the buildings that house them.
The Union Street Guest House (main house) was built in 1830, a time of great prosperity in this still young country. It is in the Greek Revival Style, a spare and demanding architectural form with high ceilings that indicated a new level of prosperity - heating a home was an expense that the small and often low ceilinged rooms of the earlier settlers had curtailed. Unlike the Victorian style, there are no gingerbread trimmings to distract from the proportions of these spacious rooms. The little Brick House next door that houses the Union Lobby is an even earlier example of the historic architecture of Hudson. The Thunderbird Suite, and Treetops Suites, are immediately behind and were early add-ons. These along with our new LOUNGE make it all one very interesting piece of architecture.
What sets apart a Guest House from other lodging is the privacy that we give our guests. Most Guest Houses provide limited staff due to the way they are designed - However, we NOW provide 24 hour service both for reservations and on-site.
We are located within walking distance of the best in antiques and fine dining, right off of the Courthouse Square where an evening’s stroll might reward you with a concert in the bandstand, or a short drive to some of the best historical sites, wineries and cultural events Columbia and Berkshire Counties can offer:
Although we don't serve a sit down breakfast, we do provide coffee, tea and other beverages as well as a light snack en suite.
