My fiance and I wanted a little weekend getaway for his birthday so we chose to relax, eat, drink, and celebrate peacefully at the Hudson House Inn.
The rooms were pretty much what we expected for a 175 year old Inn but Room #6 was very clean and well kept. The Main Street terrace was very small but it had a chair and enough room to step out and enjoy the cool breeze on a sunny day. It had a screen door so we left the door open while we were in the room since the weather was perfect! The hot water took a while to come on and felt just warm most of the time in the shower but the pressure was good. The ceiling fan did not seem sturdy and made a loud clicking noise when we turned it on so we left it off. The TV was old but that was to be expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful!
The Hudson House Restaurant was amazing! I didn't realize it was such a popular place but you wouldn't know it until you went downstairs and opened the door into the space. While we were in our room it was very quiet and peaceful, but while in the restaurant the service was great, the jazz music (like Frank Sinatra) in the background was soothing, and the specials were delicious. The Hudson House specialties like the Blueberry Pancakes and Bananas Foster are a must. The NY Strip steak was perfect and the Lobster Mac and Cheese was YUMMY! My favorite dessert was the Flour-less Chocolate Cake! We had brunch after we checked out, before we left to head home and it was worth it!
The Main Street strip is only a block and a half away so that was all the activity we needed for our relaxing weekend. We explored some of antiques shops and a cafe that I will mention in a separate review. All in all, this was our second B&B and better than the first for sure so we'll be back! Being conveniently located near the Cold Springs Metro North train station made it easy to get to after work from the city (in a little over an hour) on a Friday and helped to avoid driving and rush hour traffic.
