“It doesn't get much better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2009

We have stayed at a variety of B&Bs over the past few years, but The Croff House has climbed to the top of our list. After our two night stay, we definitely consider this place to be our absolute favorite.

The house itself has been very well restored. The furnishings are all new. While they are not antiques, they feel very cozy and comfortable. The living room just feels like home.

We stayed in the Chace Suite. We thought that this was the best suite because it faces the street. The other suites face the back, etc. As with most B&Bs, the rooms are a little smaller in real life than on camera, but other than that, the room is as depicted. In addition to two easy chairs, there is a full closet with mirror and a digital, flat-panel TV with DirecTV and AppleTV, and free wireless internet. There are many movie channels. There is also a clock radio with a dock for your iPod, which is great! One downside to having so many digital devices, it seems, is a lack of available electrical outlets, but that’s understandable.

The bed is a pillow-top, which is very soft, and we found it quite comfortable. Bed linens were excellent. A turn-down service is provided nightly. Heat is by radiator, which was silent, and the gas fireplace puts out plenty of heat. I couldn’t tell if air conditioning is available. The room faces Willard Place, which is a small cul-de-sac. There is a slight traffic hum from the nearby streets, and a train horn sounds in the far distance during the night, but it didn’t bother us. If you are a daytime napper, there is a little noise in the hallway during busy times (like a Friday when everybody arrives at once), but nothing extraordinary. Overall, sleep was quite refreshing.

The bathroom is delightful. All of the fixtures are very new and very modern. A claw-foot tub has a telephone-style shower head. The spa shower is not to be missed. It’s huge, it’s got full-body jets, and there’s plenty of hot water to go around. I had to take about five minutes to figure out its operation, but it was worth the trouble. In terms of toiletries, they go all out; you could probably get away without bringing anything at all. But if you like a body bar, bring your own – they provide liquid body wash (good stuff, though). Bathroom linens were pleasant, including his-and-her robes.

Hudson offers some great restaurants, and you can walk there from the hotel. Although a little pricey, the food was outstanding. Ca’Mea was our favorite; be sure to have the hotel book your table for a 10% discount. Our total check came to about $85 for two, including all. One convenience – none of the restaurants require formal wear. All of the patrons were dressed comfortably.

Breakfast at The Croff House was outstanding – try the pumpkin muffins if you can. The local paper isn’t much to read. Checkout was cordial and we thought it was an excellent value.

If you want to try a bed-and-breakfast, check out this place. And Russ and Duncan, if you’re reading, you can rest assured that we’ll be back!

If you two are reading this we look forward to welcoming you back.

This bed and breakfast makes you feel like invited guests to your best friend's home. The owners Ross and Duncan have thought of every detail to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Their gourmet breakfasts are to die for; their thoughtfullness and attention to every detail enhances every aspect of your stay. We enjoyed our get away

It took us a while to get to Hudson but once we arrived, Russ & Duncan took the chill out of the evening. This wonderful B&B that they've created is absolutely incredible. Breakfast each morning was delicious (A+++), the rooms are lovely, and they had one of my favorite books of all time in the library! I've always dreamed about having my own B&B one day and I hope I can make it as warm, inviting, and comfortable as they did. My boyfriend and I were very upset about going back to work the next day.

Thanks for everything & we both look forward to coming back in the near future!

Regards,
K & R

Thanks for the sensational cudos! We are so glad you enjoyed your weekend with us. We love having such enthusiastic or appreciative guests as you two. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so when you get ready to do your B&B let us know. We'll give you some pointers that we learned along the way. Until then we hope to see you back again soon. Again, our sincerest thanks for the outstanding review!

My wife and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary in Hudson and couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. Location is great as you are a quick walk to shops and restaurants. Russ and Duncan did a great job with the renovations in creating a warm and inviting space. We stayed in the Peck room; modern bathroom, big bed, comfy sheets, flatscreen, and pretty quiet considering the other rooms being close by. Their breakfast's were delicious (a big fan of the balsamic peaches) but their attention to giving you the best stay possible was what won me over. Will definitely go back.

"You must write your own reviews," I wisecracked. "Nobody is that good." By the end of our stay, though, I added my own hosannahs. (Russ and Duncan are as nice as their dogs, something few people can claim. The dogs live next door.)

We told you that Trip Advisor does not look kindly on "fake reviews" and we would never risk losing the wonderful "press' you and others have provided. Your praise (in the form of hosannahs) is so greatly appreciated. Your recognition has also earned tremendous wags from "the girls next door". We hope you'll come back and stay with us again soon! Be well!

The Croff House has been renovated to be a superb bed and breakfast with all amenities you could want being provided. The rooms have all be beautifully done with contemporary bath rooms. The hosts make you feel right and home and do everything possible to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Breakfast is delicious, but not for those on a diet.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful bed and breakfast this past weekend to unwind from our hectic daily activities. What a pleasure! Not only is the Croff House beautiful to look at on both outside and inside but it is also a special place because of the extraordinary hospitality of its owners Russ and Duncan.

Special touches included a warm greeting upon arrival including an offer to carry up our bags, gourmet breakfasts, turn- down service in the evening, and a willingness to do anything to make our stay in the B&B a memorable one. Although it rained the entire weekend, we enjoyed staying warm by the fire both in the living room and in our own room (Chace Suite). Warren Street, the center of all the action in Hudson, is a short stroll from the inn. We enjoyed browsing the shops and dining in a couple of the great restaurants. The Croff House is a perfect getaway destination with a special someone . This is a superb bed and breakfast!

We're so pleased you had a great stay with us, despite the less than stellar weather. [October in the Hudson Valley: you never know what to expect weather-wise.] We were excited to be able to light the fireplaces for the first time and were glad they added some warmth and coziness to your visit. Hopefully you will venture our way again and stay with us at The Croff House.
