Throughout the 1700s New England whalers transported the maritime leviathans up the broad river to be processed in Hudson. After the collapse of whaling industry the town's gambling houses and sporting brothels flourished well into the 20th century. In recent years Hudson's myriad of architectural styles underwent a revival to reincarnate the riverside community as a haven for artists in the haunts of Ahab with a plethora of antique stores, art galleries, music venues, and restaurants as well as the Hudson Milliner, the former millinery providing Hudson with hats for the better part of a century and now serving the needs of travelers seeking a safe haven for a night or longer.
Historic Hudson is easy to get to by car or by train — it's just a quick two-hour trip from Penn Station in New York City.
This autumn the Hudson Milliner Guesthouse & Inn opened as a refuge for urbanites in search of refined comfort in classical surroundings. One step inside the newly-renovated 19th century hat shop transports the present to an ageless luxury designed to captivate time. The refined details of each room heighten the awareness of precious moments passing into a weekend of bliss accompanied by the innumerable pleasures of the modern world.
The Hudson Milliner Guesthouse & Inn is located on Warren Street, the main thoroughfare of Hudson. This proximity to the town's restaurants, shops, and bars allows guest to enjoy a car-free and carefree getaway a mere two-hours from New York City.
All rooms have high-speed internet and central air.
The pre-tin plaster moldings, solid mahogany stairwells, pocket doors with etched glass inlay, large mahogany framed windows and gorgeous hardwood floors compliment meticulously styled kitchens and bathrooms with carefully restored fixtures such as vintage electric and gas stoves and refrigerators.
The Hudson Milliner Guesthouse & Inn is all about living life for the future tempered by the understanding of the past, so come up the river to where every new season becomes a gift of living.
