“A Five Star B & B”
Reviewed December 9, 2009

The Croff House is a hidden gem in Hudson, NY.
My partner and I wanted to get away from Manhattan for the weekend which happened to coincide with the town's annual Winter Walk. We were utterly delighted to be welcomed in total charm and elegance. The owners Russ and Duncan have created a home away from home with the refinements and attention to detail found in five star hotels - yet so down to earth and incredibly comfortable. Their magical linens, top notch bathrooms, delicious breakfasts, two cozy fireplaces (which were so appreciated on this snowy weekend)...so many superlatives.
A salute to Russ and Duncan who were so gracious and made us feel as if we were the only guests there. We cannot wait to return.

Your wish to experience Christmas in a small town couldn't have been planned better! What a fun weekend having you join Hudson in kicking off the holiday season with all the festivities. We'd love to take credit for the snow but our attention to detail does have certain limitations. We're so happy that you had such a fantastic time and look forward to your return visit soon. Until then - best wishes for a continued wonderful holiday season!

This is a lovely place to stay for a romantic get away. The B & B staff was amazing- lot's of helpful information and service. They offered to help us with dinner reservations and helped another couple get to and from the train station which is close by. The breakfast was 3 courses including homemade banana bread, melon with a homemade mint syrup and a very tasty baked french toast with apples and cinnamon whipped cream. Another couple bought a set of sheets to take home because they were so comfortable to sleep in. Really great place overall just blocks from interesting shops and beautiful architecture.

This quaint victorian home has the best of everything for travelers. Russ met us at our car and brought in our suitcase. We were shown around the house and made to feel right at home. There are several public areas where we could relax. We were shown how to contact Russ or Duncan at any time day or night. The refreshments offered to us were wonderful. I particularly like one kind of tea and Russ had it prepared in no time. We felt well informed on the restaurants, shops and luckily the tea factory that made my favorite tea was close. This was a retirement get away from our son & his wife, and we really had a chance to relax.The room was very comfortable and decorated beautifully. That shower with the five heads was fantastic. We loved the small stained glass window in one small section of the shower .The breakfasts were three course affairs that are second to none as far as we are concerned. We hope to return again and bring friends. Thanks so much Russ, we hope to meet Duncan when we come the next time. Top Notch all the way.

We're so glad your trip to Harney and Sons was a success and are so pleased you were able to get a personalized tour of the facilities.

We like to give our guests' their space to make themselves at home and enjoy the inn to the fullest. At the same time we want them to know that we are always available whether we're in the owner's quarters downstairs or shopping at the grocery store.

We look forward to welcoming you and your friends back soon! Until then we wish you all the best this holiday season and health and happiness in the New Year.

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!

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!

K & R

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.
