Exquisite; there is no doubt in my mind! Recent stay was the best! Extraordinary delicious continental breakfast by Joe and Amanda! Yummy delicious; indeed! They attended to me and husband with such detail and was extended throughout our stay. The Villa bed was super comfy and bathroom ideal; the room itself was perfect; complimentary minibar with featured special drinks and homemade cookies; so special! We will return for another stay!! The outside gardens are spectacular too; which are soo inviting from the time you set foot on the property; tranquil and beautiful!!
The Villa at Saugerties is a dreamy escape in the Hudson Valley that offers a most special and memorable stay. Amanda and Joe have designed a serene, well-appointed 4-room home base with comfortable guest rooms (remote fireplaces! heated bathroom floors!) and beautiful surroundings (pool! exquisite landscaping!). They are such warm, thoughtful, and helpful hosts and the meals are sublime: Joe cooks flavorful, inventive, and bountiful breakfasts and one very special dinner (opt in for this!). All the food is seasonal and veggie-forward. Staying there is an idyllic, unique experience that totally transports you — no aesthetic detail is overlooked and Amanda offers thorough recommendations for things to do in the area. Explore nearby towns (Woodstock, Hudson) but make sure you bask in the lovely environment Amanda and Joe have created.
We have been refreshed and restored.
The Villa at Saugerties is a beautiful, exquisitely designed place...both in the rooms and the gardens. You feel nature's presence from the pink and white peonies in the room to the quiet bird calls and the willows in the garden where we shared our meals.
Amanda and Joe are warm, caring people who take delight in getting to know their guests. They ask for individual food preferences. Delicious meals are creatively prepared and served with pride.
Thank you, Amanda and Joe, for giving us unique moments in time we will long remember.
Spent a mother/daughter weekend at the Villa at Saugerties and everything about it was just perfection! Run by couple Amanda and Joe, we were treated to high touch service from the moment I called to book the reservation - I received a lovely email with suggestions of all the local things to do and she spent time on the phone with me to discuss itinerary and any special requests.
The Villa is clearly a labor of love - every single detail is just perfection - every design element by Amanda and every food decision by Joe. There are 4 rooms, each uniquely decorated with beautiful custom pieces. We had Room 1 which had a gorgeous sage colored bed, navy chair and an antique looking crackled oval mirror on the wall. The view of the lush outside gardens was spectacular and we enjoyed time sitting around their lovely pool. The main floor also has an elegant sitting area and a large round table so plenty of spaces to do work or just enjoy some quiet time.
We also LOVED the food. Joe is a pro in the kitchen and seems to love preparing scrumptious meals for his guests. Each morning he prepares an elaborate breakfast and on Saturday eve there is dinner. Every meal was a mix of interesting flavors, textures and colors. I tried things I have never had before and I loved every single bite!
This was a much needed trip after a very long time apart and we enjoyed our stay so much. Thank you to Amanda and Joe!
We spent three nights at the Villa at Saugerties. The property is impeccably designed and the owners, Amanda and Joe, are warm and make you feel at home. The room we stayed in had a beautiful patio where we sat with our morning coffee or relaxed after a day of hiking and town hoping in the area. They have a delicious brunch prepared for you each morning and a dinner on Saturday night. This gave us ample opportunity to explore food in the area, but made the trip so much more relaxing to know we could sleep in and have yummy meal each morning. We can't wait to return!
