“First B&B Experience, and it was a great one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My partner and I recently spent two days at the Hudson Merchant House, in the Nantucket Room. We had never been to Hudson before, and this was actually our first experience staying at a B&B.

The first B first... the bedroom was lovely. It was beautifully appointed and our room had a immaculately renovated bathroom which inspires me to renovate my own bathroom at home. There was a big soaking tub and top of the line bath products waiting for us. The room also featured a few big windows which overlooked the street out front.

The second B... breakfast was delicious. Coffee, juice, quiche, french toast, cereal, & great conversation. Roy and Mike are fantastic hosts and great cooks and provided us with an excellent lay of the Hudson landscape and got us ready for a day of antiquing and window shopping.

Location-wise, this home is perfect for the NYC weekender... it's about 2 blocks from the Amtrak station and the B&B sits at the foot of Warren Street, the commercial corridor of Hudson. There's also two parks nearby. Unfortunately, no driveway, but there's plentiful street parking right in front of the building.

All in all - it was a fantastic trip and I look forward to returning sometime soon.

Thank you for your wonderful review. There is no better compliment as when a first time B&B guest enjoys it so much, they leave happy with a positive outlook at the wonderful world of small inns. Thank you also for you great remarks about our fantastic breakfast and service. It means so much. We look forward to hosting you both again.

We had a simply wonderful stay here, the place is impeccable and tastefully decorated with stuff the inn keepers have locally sourced.

The room was very comfortable, well sized, the renovations were well executed with thoughtful upgrades like a built in sound/radio system.

Roy and Mike were great hosts, with lots of good local recommendations. The rest of the staff, Otis and Shelby were friendly and equally helpful.

Room Tip: If you can swing it, get one of the rooms with a tub.

We absolutely loved Hudson Merchant House! Innkeepers Roy and Mike were consummate hosts: accommodating, warm, friendly, with captivating little stories from Roy that left the delectable gourmet breakfast (herbs/veggies from the garden) each morning even more soul-warming! By the end of our stay we decided that our breakfasts there were the highlight of our food experience in Hudson – we’re complete foodies and breakfast was hands down the best meal we had! We could only hope that Mike offered to make dinner, too!

The house itself was immaculate and well-appointed; a gorgeous restored property combining classic with eclectic old world charm. Our room had a wonderful king bed with fabulous bed linens/pillows/mattress that left me refreshed every morning - I'm a harsh critic for "hotel" bedding, so this was close to perfection for me.

All in all Hudson Merchant House surpassed our exceptions - I literally cannot say a negative word about it. The ambiance as a whole (including the lovable resident dogs, Shelby & Otis) left us very much looking forward to our next visit!

I wanted a last minute getaway and stumbled upon the Hudson Merchant House. What a find! Immaculate, a gorgeous mix of modern and antique. The owners are so friendly and accommodating and helpful and Roy is a fabulous cook!

I have recommended HMH to friends and will stay there again should I ever return.

STAY HERE! Trust me! Best in Hudson. Not only has Hudson become one of my favorite spots on the map, but the Hudson Merchant House is a must for my boyfriend and I to go every time we're there. We have multiple friends that live in Hudson, but nothing compares to the precise detail of Roy and Mike's fabulous house. It's out of a story-book. It's perfectly located in the center of all the great shops and restaurants in Hudson. Roy and Mike are quite possibly the sweetest humans. They are spot on with every detail. My personal favorite is the Marilyn Monroe quote on a tiny piece of paper left on a makeup towel. The sheets are soft and delicate, the house always smells dreamy, the food is incredibly delicious. Waking up to the smell of zucchini French Toast was a very happy morning. Also, we're both huge dog lovers so to have their beautiful animals Shelby and Otis there makes us feel just like we're at home. I don't think there's anywhere else you could have a better stay in Hudson. It's truly a special place and I can't say enough about our consummate hosts.

Room Tip: If available, get the room with the private porch.

The house is gorgeous, the breakfast delicious, the hosts welcoming and the hosts' dogs absolutely adorable. The only negative of the entire weekend was the noise. It's an old house and there is little soundproofing. You can hear everything going on in the rooms around you and/or when people come in and out late at night or early in the morning. Otherwise, a great stay.

Thank you for your review of HMH. We are thrilled you enjoyed our welcoming service and delicious breakfasts. As you had mentioned, still being a home and not a big hotel chain, noise of other guests can be heard, especially wedding guests who enjoy themselves a bit too much and return home a bit too late, we are truly sorry if you were awoken by them. We have already installed additional rugs, etc to hopefully help with the traveling noise.
We look forward to having you stay again.
