My husband and I just spent the Memorial Day long weekend in Hudson, this time staying at the Wm Farmer & Sons Boarding Hotel at 20 Front Street. While the owners were in the processing of completing an extensive renovation of the hotel, they were very communicative in the weeks leading up to our reservation and Kristan, the owner, welcomed...

I proposed to my now fiance in the Clear Water Suite on New Year's Eve. Our two night stay was lovely. Service was excellent; we had a bottle of champagne in the fridge, great ground coffee and snacks in the room. Two minor complaints. The views weren't as majestic as expected - there are apartments between the inn and the... More

Our stay at Front Street Guest House couldn't have been better. We had very high expectations and it exceeded them! The Moby-Dick Suite is cozy and tastefully decorated: unpretentious, simple, rustic, but high-quality. We loved the touches of burlap, twine, Mason jars, rustic (but not cheesy) accents, the color scheme, and especially the gas wood stove at the heart of... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights in the Clear Water Suite. Overall, there was great service and they even left snacks for us in the room! The kitchen and living room space were perfect to hang out and drink the local wine we brought back from our vineyard trip. Plus it was really cute and cozy decor. It felt... More

What a great place! We rented a lovely suite with full kitchen and nice gas fireplace that really heated the entire house. Plus there were lovely welcoming gifts. The owners were great. Anything we needed was there -- the softest bathrobe ever, lovely smelling bathroom soaps and a bottle of wine to relax from a long week. I highly recommend... More

The email instructions that we received in advance were complete and helpful, and Andi was there to greet us when we arrived on Wednesday. She gave us a very thorough orientation to the Guest House, our rooms, and Hudson. The bottle of wine, snacks, and breakfast foods were all consumed and enjoyed----having a kitchenette is a real plus. We really... More

I have never been to a place with better service and attention to details. The decor was authentic and well thought, the overall feel was charming and clean. The location next to the river and walking distance to everything was convenient as well. However, they forgot to renovate one important thing: the shower faucets. I'm 5'7" and hubby is 6'2"...

We really enjoyed our weekend stay in the Moby Dick suite of this fine guest house. This is a very old property that his been carefully maintained.
