Mount Merino Manor

4317 Route 23 , Hudson, NY 12534 USA (Show map)


Enjoy the comfort of Mount Merino Manor, an elegant Bed and Breakfast in a private country setting. Drive through the stone pillars and up the tree-canopied drive to experience a sense of history. A neighbor to Olana State Historic Site and minutes to Hudson, this manor was built in 1870 by Frederick Church’s private physician, Dr. Gustavus A. Sabine. Presently home to seven luxury guest rooms, many with fireplaces, whirlpool tubs and walk-in spa showers, this bed and breakfast is ideal for a romantic getaway. Experience an exquisite sunset from the wraparound porch, stroll around the lotus pond to the sweet tune of tree frogs or just relax in a whirlpool tub and soak in the moonlight.

Mount Merino Manor is an absolute MUST if you're staying in the Hudson Valley. The innkeepers have put so much thought into the character and charming details of each room. Exquisite! The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The service is unparalleled...the on-site manager, Wendy, really goes out of her way to help patrons AND she's a wonderful cook. Very highly recommended.

If this is your first B&B experience, you may just be spoiled for life!

Patrick and Rita have put together the dreamiest Bed and Breakfast. They have taken advantage of their experiences in design and management, as well as their travels and stays in B&Bs, and combined them with a beautifully restored 1800's home on 100 acres in Hudson, NY. If you have never stayed in a B&B, Mount Merino will spoil you from here on out- your comparison bar will be forever heightened if you have stayed in others. It is elegantly decorated, gorgeously restored, and yet all of the modern amenities and comforts are included. There is no clutter, no kitsch, no DUST, no silk plants! The rooms are large (even the smallest) and the bathrooms are fabulous. The views of the nearby Catskill Mountains from some rooms are fantastic. Nearby is the adorable town of Hudson with plenty of good restaurants and boutique shopping. If you want more, it's not too far from other great towns along the Hudson River. What could be bad?

Perfect stay

We completely enjoyed our short stay at the Manor. The room was very clean and comfortable. The house has the charm of yesteryear but up to date to satisfy the luxury traveler. Stay for the delicious full breakfast! We'll be back.

Majestic Luxury!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Mount Merino Manor. The house is elegant and uncluttered. It is on a large property which gives the house a certain majesty, yet it also felt simultaneously cozy. Perhaps that was also because of the warmth and friendliness of the inn keepers, a young couple. There is considerable attention to detail - The water pressure in the spa shower was fantastic, like a hot waterfall on my head. The linens and towels were very luxurious. Over the two mornings we ate homemade muffins and breads, baked zucchini omelet, French toast, bacon, sausage, fruit and yogurt. All was delicious! It is the best place to stay if you are visiting Olana (like we did) and it is only a few miles down the road from the towns of Hudson and Catskill.

About the innkeepers

As we pulled up the winding drive, it was love at first site, a stately Victorian. Clean lines, good bones, seven fireplaces, crazy views of the mountains, the river, the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, what’s not to love ? Strolling through her light filled rooms, we realized this gracious home wanted to be an Inn.
