“Wonderful stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My husband and I stayed here last weekend to celebrate our three-year anniversary. This was our first bed-and-breakfast stay, and we were really pleased. Our room was lovely, with a beautiful fireplace and an AMAZING tub. I think I spent two hours in the tub--SO relaxing. The bed was also really comfortable and luxurious.
Duncan and Russ were attentive and friendly and it really seems like they care about you and your stay. They recommended some places to have drinks and to eat, and both times we followed their advice they were spot-on about what we wanted. Their attention to detail is evident throughout the house--the decor was tasteful, the house was extremely clean, they had free wi-fi, Apple TV, and even offered umbrellas for the guests to use since it was raining. They also had some interesting books in their library. I read one about the architectural history of Hudson, which is really worth reading about before you wander into town. It made me appreciate the town a lot more, I think, so I am glad they had that available.
The breakfasts were really really good. The muffins were so so so fantastic!! After having muffins we had a fruit course both days--also delicious served with yogurt. On our first morning we had Huevos Rancheros as an entree and it was delicious. On the second morning we had amaretto french toast with a blueberry sauce. Both my husband and I are not fans of amaretto, but the texture of the french toast was perfect, and so I know someone less adverse to amaretto would love it. The portions were perfect as well--not too much but just enough to thoroughly enjoy each course without being really over-full.
Overall, five stars. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone interested in visiting Hudson. A big thanks to Russ and Duncan for making our first B+B experience topnotch!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Esselstyn Suite and it was awesome. Beautiful fireplace and amazing tub and shower.

Thanks for the phenomenal review! It's a fun challenge to see how B&B first timers enjoy the experience since staying at an inn is much different that staying at a hotel. Our approach it to let our guests enjoy the house without having to feel like we are right on top of them and/or they are invading our space. So, we're glad you guys had such a fantastic introduction to B&B's. We're also happy our dinner and activity recommendations hit the bullseye. Being just a short walk into town makes everything so convenient. We hope that you will venture our way again and look forward to having you back. Until then, thanks a million!

We enjoyed our stay very much; we went away for my husband's birthday. Our goal was to catch up on sleep and relax, which was easy to do at the Croff house. We stayed in one of the suites which was extremely comfortable. Russ and Duncan are wonderful hosts and created a very welcoming and warm atmosphere. Breakfast was super delicious. We hope to visit Hudson soon and stay at the Croff house again.

My wife and I stayed at The Croff House for Valentine's Day & President's Day weekend. We were delighted to return for our second visit to The Croff House (we visited during the same weekend last year).

The rooms are clean and spacious with modern amenities (DIRECTV and WiFi). The house is quiet and relaxing. It is perfect for reading by the fireplace and watching the snow fall. Both our trips have been on a snowy winter weekend, but I am sure it is wonderful in warmer seasons too.

The owners, Russ and Duncan, are friendly and helpful. They attend to every detail to make sure your stay is comfortable and pleasant. They offered great suggestions to guests for enjoying Hudson and exploring the many shops, art galleries, and restaurants within walking distance.

Breakfast was delicious with a different menu served each day. My favorite was the swiss cheese & chive quiche with baked bacon.

I highly recommend staying at The Croff House for a perfect weekend getaway! We will definitely be back!

Once again another phenomenal review from you guys, for which we thank you SO much! It was wonderful having you back during another snowy Hudson Valley weekend, and we're glad you could enjoy all the indoor spaces of The Croff House. We are always so pleased not only that guests return to visit us but that their second (third, fourth) experience is as equally memorable as their first. So glad a third visit is already in the works! Until then, stay warm and be well!

A group of 4 couples (+/- 30 years old) traveled here for NYE 2015 and had an amazing stay thanks to the attentiveness of Duncan and Russell. We were welcomed at the door by name and the personal touches continued throughout from remembering our preferences during the very well-rounded and tasty breakfasts to leaving a seasonal gift in the room. Our days were spent meandering around the local trails and then returning to enjoy a beer and make fires in their living rooms. The bedrooms are very well appointed, wonderful showers and our bed was so cozy we didn't want to get up. Great ambiance and beautiful historic building - great way to ring in the New Year!

You guys were awesome! It was such a great New Year's holiday and your enthusiasm for The Croff House and Hudson was so greatly appreciated. We were so happy to host your friends holiday and that we were able to provide you with all you guys needed, from great breakfasts to comfy beds, to make your time here terrific. Being located such a short walk to town makes it easy to explore all that Hudson as to offer - shops, galleries, and restaurants - to then be able to take the short walk back to the inn to relax and unwind. We hope to see you guys back again, but hope that we won't have to wait a full year to do so. Thanks a million for the amazing review!

I typically do not like Bed & Breakfasts, but my wife insists. The outstanding experience that we had at The Croff House has forced me to reevaluate my position on all B&Bs, but has also set an incredibly high benchmark as well.

Duncan and Russell have struck a terrific balance of a friendly and warm environment in a very relaxed manner.

The breakfasts were terrific and the recommendations for local restaurants and attractions were on-point. If you are lucky enough to find an open room at The Croff House, book it.

What an absolutely awesome review - thanks so much! You guys were wonderful guests and we're so happy the four of you enjoyed yourselves so much at The Croff House. We loved walking in to see the fireplace roaring and you all just totally chilling out before dinner. We're happy our dining recommendations met you needs so well and that everything at the inn - from the breakfasts to your rooms - were just what you were looking for. Always thrilled to have a B&B convert : ) Until next time thanks again so much and our the best to you all this holiday season and in the New Year!

We visited Hudson over the Thanksgiving holiday and had the pleasure (and luck!) of finding the Croff House. The owners were away on our arrival, so they left us in the capable hands of the lovely Delphina. From our first communication with her, she was as gracious a host as we've ever met. Her attention to detail and warm, friendly demeanor made us feel right at home. Actually, better than home! Our room was the "Traver" and the photos online don't do it justice. This was probably one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. Breakfasts were spectacular...perfectly prepared, fresh and LOTS of food! The location was in close walking distance to many shops, boutiques and restaurants. The decor and furnishings of the home fit perfectly with the gorgeous architecture. Although we never met the owners, it's obvious that they put much effort into the details and it didn't go unnoticed. Even their attention to hiring exceptional staff..Thanks again to Delphina for your hard work and going above and beyond! We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: The Traver was quiet, with a King sized bed that was heavenly!

We're so excited that you enjoyed your stay at The Croff House and, on behalf of ourselves and Del, we want to offer our sincerest thanks and appreciation. We have waited a long while to find just the right person to run the inn in our absence, and when we met Del we knew she would be a great fit. She quickly learned our way but, most importantly, she has a very warm and welcoming personality. While we are sorry we didn't get to meet you, we're thrilled that Del took such good care of you - as we knew she would. Next time you are in the area we hope you will once again stay with us at The Croff House. Until then, all the best to you both this holiday season and thank you.

Beautiful house with great common areas.
We arrived by bicycle and left our bicycles in the backyard.
Duncan and Russ were very friendly and attentive when we needed and provided good recommendations and overview about Hudson.
It was a 5 min walk to Warren @ 4th, great restaurants and shopping along Warren.
We stayed in the Edmonds Room, very quiet, cozy, comfortable and clean.
Great shower and nice toiletries in the bathrooms.
Wifi worked well.
Phone available for local and long distance calls.
There is apple TV, cable and flat screen TV available in the room.
Great breakfast.
Would definitely stay here again.
