The staff is amazing! The hotel is beautifully done. The room was so beautiful and cozy it made my want to stay longer!! Only issue is since your so close to the tran station you hear the train pass by.

We took the train to Hudson from NYC and spent a quick weekend at Wm Farmer and Sons. It was a very easy train ride, with very scenic views and then a very short walk to Wm Farmer and Sons. The staff was extremely attentive from the moment we arrived. They carried our luggage upstairs to our room, which was... More

We very much appreciate you mentioning the stairs in our boarding house! It is an 1830's building and the renovation kept all of the beauty of the old but of course that also came with a certain kind of functionality! For those who have trouble with stairs, I always recommend our Annex rooms which are located on the first level... More

I don't usually write reviews. I definitely read them though. And I didn't want to miss my chance to praise the efforts of this very special place. My friend, my dog and myself made a visit to Hudson, NY recently and stayed and dined at Wm Farmer & Sons. My only regret was that we only spent one night. The... More

We spent two winter evenings at Wm Farmer and Sons, and enjoyed the overall ambiance. It is convenient and cozy, distinct, and secure. Staff support is definitely a plus. Vanessa could not have been more gracious. Rooming on the second floor was notably noisy. There is no soundproofing apparent between the barrom below and the guest rooms, very apparent after...

WM Farmer & Sons operates like a classic roadhouse. A small B&B attached to a delicious restaurant and coffee-shop. I can't rave enough about the staff. Everyone is wonderfully attentive and hospitable. We had dinner in the restaurant our first night there. We ordered a range of appetizers to share like tapas. All the dishes sounded delicious, that we figured... More

I do not even know where to begin with how unbelievable our week-long stay was at Wm. Farmer and Sons aka our new home away from home. I've never stayed in a hotel/inn/B&B this focused on perfection in every way, anywhere in the world. Let's start from the beginning... This place is absolutely adorable and not in that kitchy "look... More

Stayed one during a trip to the Catskills. Charming and lovely rustic yet modern decor. Very comfortable bed. Walking distance to great restaurants and bars in Hudson. The woman who checked us in was friendly and kindly helped us with our luggage. Would definitely revisit when back in the area. Definitely the place to stay in Hudson.

Pros: Super nice hosts Great customer service Nice room with fireplace and good bed Good location Cons: There was serious road noise in our second floor unit, made worse by the windows not fitting properly. Overall, I can't imagine there's any place nicer to stay in Hudson.

If you are thinking of leaving New York city for a few days and need to get away from the city then Hudson is your destination. Farmer and Sons offers gorgeous rooms and only two blocks from the train station. The service is impeccable. We chose to stay for dinner the first night and it was great. Go-go-go!
