Stayed 1 night in the Billy Joel room – not surprisingly decorated in a Billy Joel theme – which was spacious and had a very comfortable bed with a nice view out over the Hudson River. House was nicely furnished including a comfortable sitting room available to guests with a large fireplace and stocked fridge/bar. Phenomenal view across the Hudson... More

It's hard to believe that such a restful and beautiful spot is so easily accessed by New York City...and boy did we need it. It was the perfect setting for my husband and I to unwind, take a deep breath, and feel the gracious care of our hosts. The view is a feast for the eyes, the decor and surroundings... More

Warm cozy charming atmosphere. Breathtaking view of the Hudson. Very friendly people. Great food. We highly recommend it and we plan to go back real soon in the fall to see the leaves change. We stayed in the romantic “Emily Room,” which features an antique queen bed, antique wardrobe, Queen Ann chest of drawers, fine linens, TV, plush robes, and... More

When I called Roxanne to book a room, I told her I wanted a view of the Hudson River and she was able to find me the perfect room for a writer craving inspiration. The experience of staying there is nothing short of exquisite. Their attention to detail is a blend of luxury and warmth. If you choose to stay... More

Not only is this a historical setting on two fronts, but it is also well appointed. It is located directly on the former estate of J.P. Morgan. In fact, the staircase, chimney and various plantings are still extant from the millionaires old estate. For Billy Joel fans, he once lived here and wrote songs on his piano up in the... More

Spending Memorial Day weekend at Overlook on Hudson was one of the best decisions we ever made. Roxanne is so welcoming with such a great profound knowledge of the local history and life. Jim is an excellent chef! They make the best brownies and blueberry gateau. It is worth it just to go there for those treats, not to mention... More

We stayed at the Overlook on the Hudson B&B during mid-week in May and will definitely return for another visit. The "Eagle's Watch" room on the ground floor has a wonderful view of the Hudson River. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom shower quite spacious. The family room was equally inviting including a bar with complimentary water and... More

Jim and Roxanne, the hosts at this B&B, are friendly and helpful, and have put lots of thought into what is needed for a great stay. They even told us that they tried out each room themselves as they were setting things up so that each room had everything necessary for their guest's comfort. The decor is lovely and upscale...

We only spent one night here, but wish it could have been more. The Donnery's are great hosts who gave us recommendations on what to do in the area and were pleasant and accomodating. We stayed in the Billy Joel room which has an amazing view of the Hudson. It's so peaceful and relaxing. Room is large, clean and comfortable.... More

Stayed at Overlook on the Hudson two weeks ago for our Anniversary and could not have been more thrilled. Everything about this bed and breakfast was wonderful. Roxanne highly recommended we arrive in time to sit outside and enjoy the view before it got dark, and are we ever glad we did. She set up comfy chairs for us, poured... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlook on Hudson Bed and Breakfast, located on the bank of the scenic Hudson River,is just minutes from West Point and less than one hour from New York City. The B and B was built on the original foundation of financier JP Morgan's 1880 home where the fireplaces and expansive patio's still exist. In the mid 1970's it was the residence of Billy Joel where he composed his popular song 'New York State of Mind'. In addition to the incredible river front property, tastefully decorated rooms and original art work throughout, china, silver, crystal, and exceptional bed linens are used to further pamper you. From our B and B you can visit the Hudson Valley's historic sites, Storm King Art Center, Woodbury Commons Premium shopping Outlets, or choose to just relax poolside and enjoy the boats passing by on the river. ... more   less
