We keep talking about our visit to the Croff House...and that was in August. My husband and I both work in the hospitality business and we were both delighted and impressed by the attention to detail and the dedication to excellence that the proprietors put into this B&B. And they were both so charming, warm and professional that we felt completely at home. We have already booked a return visit and Croff House is on our short list of favorite places to stay. Thanks Duncan and Russ!
We thank you so much for the terrific review! It's wonderful when fellow hospitality guests stay with us and we're happy you're stay was memorable enough to motivate you to share your experience with future visitors. If we make it past the short list, we hope to see you back again soon. Until then, much appreciation and thanks!

We were in town from NYC for a wedding and stayed here with some friends. It was a wonderful experience. It is a pretty short walk from the train and be prepared to walk as Uber doesn't seem to be around and the cab companies aren't really there either (this would be a problem for any and every B&B in Hudson). The House is very well done and Duncan and Russ are quite welcoming and put a lot of thought into the comfort of the place. It is on a little side street in a nice part of the small town. The breakfasts were fantastic - be prepared for a 3 course meal! Overall, this was one of the nicest B&B's I've ever been too. I'd say it reminds me a lot of Newburyport, MA, but with a better breakfast. Enjoy!
Thanks a million for the awesome review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Wedding weekends are chock full of events, so guests don't usually have a lot of time to enjoy the inn and Hudson, but we're so glad this was not the case with your stay. We hope you will visit us once again, and look forward to seeing you. Thanks again!

Duncan and Ross were awesome. Food and service were great. I would stay there again.
Hey! Thanks for the great comments - we really appreciate it and hope to see you back again soon!

I spent Memorial Day weekend with a group of friends at The Croff House. I wish I could think of some constructive criticism, but I can't - the house is perfect and the hosts are great. I would change nothing. Start with the house. It is beautiful. Actually, our collective jaws dropped when we entered it. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are a treat. The location is great - walking distance from the town center and from the Hudson for fantastic views. There's also a lovely porch that is great for idling, enjoying the flowers, and chatting and imbibing. The hosts are very attentive without being in your face. Just really nice people who know their town and care about their guests' well-being. They cook a mean breakfast too and even accommodated the two vegans in our group without a grumble. This really is a great place to stay of you are looking for a getaway from New York and want to enjoy Hudson town. Very highly recommended.
Patrick: Thanks for the sensational comments and praise, we really appreciate it! What a fun weekend it was for you all celebrating Jenny's graduation, and we're so happy you chose The Croff House to host your festivities. Based on your comments everything seems to have exceeded your needs and expectations, which is so fulfilling for us. We hope that you and the others will come back to Hudson for another visit soon. Until then thanks a million and be well!

We couldn't have had a more perfect place to stay. From the minute we arrived, Russ was at our car, helping us with our bags. Once inside, he happily recommended several restaurants in which to try while helping us get settled into our beautiful room. We truly felt at home in the Croff House, a magnificently restored Victorian home. Russ and Duncan provide the most personal touches everywhere, including making and setting the automatic timer on the coffee pot in the kitchen for my husband and me to help ourselves at our leisure. Both Duncan and Russ made two delicious, three course breakfasts each morning of our stay. I am already planning to say again for a mother/daughter weekend this summer and again in the fall with my husband.
Amy & Greg: Thanks so much for the exceptional review. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us so highly and appreciate all your wonderful praise including our breakfasts, service and amenities. We look forward to hosting your mother/daughter getaway - just let us know when you'd like to book it and we will be waiting for you. Thanks again so very much!

We went to the Croff House in the middle of November. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the house was very nicely decorated. The highlight was the breakfasts and the excellent selection of teas. The location was also great, as it is only a 5 minute walk from Warren St. Looking forward to coming back in the future.
Hey thanks so much for the excellent review! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and that you appreciate all we do to make our guests' stay memorable. In addition thanks for mentioning how our convenient location within walking distance of Hudson's main street, Warren Street, makes everything close and convenient. We thank you again for the great review and with you all the best this holiday season and in the year ahead!

For a weekend away from the city, I made reservations at The Croff House, a wonderful bed and breakfast owned by proprietors Duncan and Russ. The five bedroom B&B is located on a quiet cul-de-sac that is conveniently located to the main street in town with restaurants and shops (Warren Street). Russ kindly picked us up at the train station (it would have been a short walk but I brought way too much luggage) and brought us to the B&B. We asked for some advice on restaurant options that cater to vegetarians (Aish!) and things to do (Farm to Glass Tour...more below!). The breakfast featured at the B&B was delicious! Each day we got: coffee (refills were constantly offered!), fresh orange juice, and chilled water. Additionally, Duncan baked fresh muffins (one day they were sweet with raspberries and the next day they were savory with sundried tomatoes), yogurt parfaits and an entree (quiche on Saturday and French Toast Sunday). I advised them that Aish is a vegetarian and they baked a meatless quiche for her and offered meatless bacon/sausage (to me, the fact that this exists saddens me). I highly recommend staying here if you find yourself in Hudson :) If you're looking for a quick trip away from Manhattan, I highly recommend coming here! You can take the Amtrak from Penn Station and get off directly at the Hudson stop. You can enjoy a weekend away without a car rental.
Amazing review! Thanks so much - we really appreciate it! You guys totally took advantage of all that The Croff House and Hudson has to offer. You're right - our convenient location within walking distance to everything means you don't need a car. So happy you enjoyed our three=course breakfasts, too (LOL about the vegetarian meat alternatives). We hope that the next time you need an "Escape from New York" we will once again have the pleasure of your company with us at The Croff House. Until then enjoy the holidays and thanks a million!

I proposed to my fiancé in front of their doorsteps. I selected this bed and breakfast because of the great reviews. Duncan and Russ are great hosts.mthe rooms are cozy and romantic. The breakfasts were delicious. We loved everything about our stay. I'd recommend this place to any couple seeking a relaxing getaway.
Thanks for the super review! We're always happy when couples choose The Croff House to "pop the question", although we get kind of antsy waiting to hear what the answer is (we haven't had a "no" yet!). We're equally happy that your special weekend was wonderful in all other aspects as well. Wishing all the best this holiday season, we thank you for the great review and offer our sincerest congratulations!

We recently had a "Big Chill" style weekend with 4 couples converging on the Croff House B&B. Two of the couples had stayed here before and we were back for more! This is a great B&B. The hosts, Russ and Duncan, are delightful and make you feel right at home. They live next door, so the house is for guests only. The rooms are beautifully appointed and not twee (we hate twee!). The bathrooms might be the highlights of each room - some with tubs, others with great showers, often with a stained glass window in the shower stall (non-transparent, obviously!). The breakfasts are truly gourmet - reason alone to come here! We will be back. Again...
LOL - what a spectacular (and entertaining) review! We're so happy you all had such a fun weekend with us at The Croff House. It can sometimes be a challenge with a close knit group as an innkeeper - knowing when you're needed and when you're not. Clearly we were able to offer just the right balance. We look forward to seeing any and all of you back again soon. Thanks again and all the best this holiday season!

Great location. Breakfast out of sight Felt like home! Going back for sure
Thanks, I think. The high praise you gave us would seem to merit higher ratings; comments like, "out of sight" and "great". The most concerning to us is the 3-"star"/average rating for cleanliness. We take great pride in not only providing outstanding amenities and services, but a clean and comfortable environment as well. If there is any feedback you'd like to share with us, please feel free to call us at the inn. While we'd be happy to welcome you back, your ratings don't seem to reflect the views of a guest who would want to return to the property. Just a little perplexed, I guess.

My husband and I stayed at The Croff House for two nights, October 16th & 17th, and could not have been more pleased. Duncan and Russ are gracious hosts who provided all one could ask for in a bed and breakfast. Accommodations were comfortable and inviting and the breakfasts were outstanding. We visit B&B's often and The Croff House is one of the best we've had the pleasure to visit. We look forward to escaping from the city to The Croff House very soon. Thank you Duncan and Russ! Cecelia and Francis M., NYC
Cecelia & Francis: Thanks for the exceptional review! We're thrilled you had such an amazing time at The Croff House and that we rank at the top of your "best of" list. We look forward to seeing you again when you are ready for another NYC escape. Until then, our sincerest thanks!
5 on October 25, 2014
Our three night stay allowed us a wonderful location to explore the Hudson River Valley. We could not have been more pleased with our selection. The breakfast are wonderful, the room was comfortable (especially that spectacular shower), and Duncan and Russ provide excellent service. We will definitely stay there again if we get to the area.
Thanks so much! What a fantastic review. It's so nice to have guests acknowledge all we do to make our guests' stay memorable We look forward to seeing you again!

Very nice property with outstanding service. The hosts were great. Stayed 2 nights, both breakfasts were fantastic
Awesome review! Thanks so much! We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us at The Croff House including our service and the breakfast. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We stayed on our way from Vermont to NY city. Great house - really warm welcome with lots of tips - Very comfortable bed with beautifully appointed room. Breakfast was something else. Good luck to both of you
What a fantastic review - thanks so very much! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us from the breakfast to the bed to the decor. We hope that you will return again soon and thank you for the great review and the kind well wishes!

This was a beautiful inn with a wonderful breakfast and welcoming hosts.

I stayed at The Croff House for one night while in Hudson for a wedding. The owners are indeed very kind and do a great job welcoming guests. I was not at all into the decor - very florid, tacky art - but everything was comfortable. Especially the bed! And the bathrooms have been recently renovated with large, multi-jet showers. I had read such great things about the breakfast but didn't find it to be anything special. It was copious, however, so if you're interested in quantity over quality then it will surely satisfy. The Croff House is quite serious about check-out times so read ahead carefully and be warned that there will be no exceptions (we asked for an additional hour to check out at noon, which is pretty standard). Denied, we ended up lugging all our bags to a coffee shop in town while we waited for our train. Not a pleasant experience.
Tacky, florid (sorry I had to Wiki that word) art? Copious breakfasts that lacked quality? Seriously. Are you sure you stayed at The Croff House? Having been the #1 B&B in Hudson for over 4 years, including raves about our breakfast and decor, this review has us speechless. Yes, it is important for guests to read the inn's policy regarding check-in/check-out times (and any establishment's policies, for that matter). We do make exceptions. However since we were expecting a full house checking in, our housekeeper needed access to the rooms in order to prepare for the incoming guests. Sorry we couldn't accommodate your request. If you come back to Hudson you clearly should stay somewhere else and allow guests who can appreciate the inn and our services the opportunity to stay with us. Cheers!
4.6 on September 27, 2014
We had a very relaxing visit. The breakfast was five star. If we ever get back this way, the Croff will be our first choice.
We thank you very much for the great review and are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope to welcome you back soon.

Almost any amenitiy you could think of was in the room including a candle to take home.
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again.

The hosts were the best we've ever had. The library and living room were so comfortable and beautifully decorated. We spent many hours reading and chatting there. It was also one of the quietest b&bs we've stayed in. Super comfortable beds and we had a gas fireplace in our room! Didn't stay long enough. Tallahassee, FL
Carol & Herb: We're so flattered by your wonderful comments and thank you so much for the fantastic review. It was wonderful having you stay with us and we're very happy you got to enjoy all that The Croff House has to offer. We hope you will come stay with us again in the future, but until then many thanks and much appreciation!

Russ and Duncan are wonderful hosts! The Croff House is a beautiful property and they've made it exceedingly comfortable, cozy, and welcoming. Will definitely stay here again.
Thanks. Hope to see you again.

Russ and Duncan put a lot of love and dedication in making you feel welcomed and stayingat the Croff has been extremely pleasant and relaxing. The room was spotless and comfortable and the breakfast menu was changing daily thanks to Duncan's cooking talents. Thanks
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent visit. We hope to see you again.

I've been a B&B devotee for decades and have stayed at many wonderful places. Consequently, my "expectations" probably are higher than a traveler with less B&B experience. Three stars for "Met my expectations" appears as less than it really is, for me. We loved The Croff House and Duncan and Russ made us feel very welcome. We'll be back.
Thanks for the review! We're glad we were able to exceed your "high expectations". Ultimately, surpassing guests' expectations is always our goal and is what we strive to achieve - regardless of the guest's "star" rating. We look forward to having you back soon and thank you again for your positive comments.
5 on August 18, 2014
It really does look like the picture, a fantasy come true. The hosts are friendly and professional, doing a gourmet breakfast themselves. The room looks as good as the lobby, silky sheets, lovely soaps, luxury shower. Silence inside except for the grandfather clock in the common room, crickets chirping outside. It's a short walk from the train station, and Olana is a ten-minute taxi ride away. Can't wait to do it again!
A five-star review all around happily merits a HUGE thank you for the fantastic comments! We're so pleased that you found everything about The Croff House so greatly met your needs and that everything, from the sheets to the breakfasts to the amenities were a big hit. The convenience of dining, shopping and attractions makes a stay at the inn even better. Thanks again for the phenomenal review - we know future guests will love to read your praises as much as we did! We hope to see you again soon.
4.8 on August 17, 2014
I booked two rooms for two nights and was very impressed with everything. Duncan and Russ were outstanding hosts. The rooms were awesome, breakfast was a treat. I would definitely recommend the Croff House to anyone who is heading to the Hudson Valley and would definitely return in the future. Great job!
Thank you so much for the spectacular review! We're so happy The Croff House was all you hoped it would be, and we love hearing words like "outstanding" and "awesome" when guests describe their visit with us. We look forward to having you back again, but until then thanks so much for the amazing praise!
5 on August 12, 2014
Superb service from inspired innkeepers in a charming central Hudson location - short walk to everything and the best breakfasts I have ever had at a B&B.
WOW! Thanks for the terrific comments. We hope you'll come back again soon. We love having appreciative guests like you and look forward to seeing back!
5 on August 11, 2014
My friend and I had a lovely stay at the Croff House this past Thursday evening. Duncan and Russ are wonderful hosts and make you feel like you are at home. This is our second time at Croff House and would highly recommend it to anyone venturing to Hudson.
D&et. al. It was so great having you all stay with us. We're so glad you had such another great time in Hudson and could explore more of what The Croff House and Hudson has to offer. We hope to see you all again soon. Until then,our sincerest thanks and be well!
5 on July 27, 2014
As soon as Russ and Duncan say hello you know you are to be well looked after. They remember first names and preferences. Even brought us our first cup of coffee on the deck before breakfast. Do stay with them?
P&T: We're so happy you guys had such a great time at The Croff House and we thank you so much for the great review! It was wonderful having you stay with us and we hope to see you back again soon. Until then thanks again for the wonderful review!
5 on July 24, 2014
This a great little hotel. Russ and Duncan are great hosts. The place is beautifully maintained. The bathroom amenities are far better than the typical B&B, and the breakfast was huge and beautifully executed.
Thanks so much for the terrific review. We're so happy you enjoyed your quick visit with us at The Croff House and we appreciate you taking the time to comment on all we do to make our guests stay memorable. Until we see you again next time, thanks so much and have a wonderful rest of the summer!

What a lovely inn! Duncan and Russ were charming, the room was spotless, the shower was heavenly, the sheets luxurious. Breakfast was a 3 course feast. If you're a fan of Victorian architecture you will appreciate how lovingly the building has been restored. We would HIGHLY recommend!!
What an fantastic review - thanks so much for the great praise! We're so glad that all aspects of your stay at The Croff House from the bed, to the shower, to the breakfast. Thanks also for noticing our efforts to restore one of Hudson's historic "painted ladies" while at the same time including all modern amenities our guests expect. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Our sincerest thanks for the outstanding review until then!
5 on July 05, 2014
A great pleasure. Highly recommended! The Inn Keepers obviously take pride in what they do. Look forward to returning soon.
Thank you for the outstanding review! We really appreciate it and are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Croff House. You're right - we do take pride in what we do and provide our guests to ensure they have a wonderful and memorable stay. Thanks again and we look forward to having you back soon!

Everything was very nice, and the inkeepers are a super pair. A very quiet location, but not far from the main street.
WOW! Thanks so much for the stellar review! We are so glad you appreciated all we do to make our guests' stay great and that you found The Croff House quiet and comfortable. We hope to see you back again soon. Until then, thanks again so very much!

We stayed at The Croff House for five nights over Memorial Weekend while attending our son's wedding. The hospitality and breakfasts were wonderful. Russ and Duncan could not have been more accommodating....having coffee available by 7:00am every morning, for example. The bedroom was large, but not spacious since it housed a king sized bed. The bathroom shower was fantastic; we're using it as a model for a re-model of ours at home! The public spaces (living areas, porch, etc.) are comfortable and attractive. Anyone looking for a great bed and breakfast close to the action in downtown Hudson would not be disappointed with the accommodations at The Croff House.
L&D: Thank you! Thank you! We really appreciate the sensational review and are so happy you enjoyed yourselves at The Croff House during your stay for your son's wedding. We also happy that the design of the inn was an inspiration for you and we'd be happy to point you in the right direction for any specifics you may need. Don't hesitate to give us a ring. We hope that next time you're in the area, you will once again stay with us. Until then, once again, many thanks!

Duncan and Russ were so friendly yet profesional. The room was heavenly and the bed was so compy. The breakfasts were scrumptious. We cant praise their B and B more
P&O: Thanks so much for the sensational review - we truly appreciate it! We're so happy you enjoyed your 3-day stay with us and that the inn lived up to your expectations, celebrating your 30th wedding anniversary. We hope that you will come stay with again soon. Until then please accept our thanks and appreciation. Best to you both!

What a wonderfully inviting and relaxing Inn!! The attention to detail, the beautiful rooms, amazing bathrooms, the fabulous breakfasts and the comfortable living spaces! Duncan and Russ are so welcoming that you feel completely at ease. Would highly recommend this for some quiet R&R! Tami M.
T&V: Thanks so much for the phenomenal review! We're thrilled you had such a great stay with us. You were both such wonderful guests, so appreciative of all that we do to make a stay at The Croff House both special and memorable. We hope that you will come back to see us again when the weather warms up. Until then thanks a million and all tbe best to you both!

Loved the Croft House. The hosts were warm and went out of their way to be helpful. Great toiletries. We were upgraded and had a large, well furnished room. Loved the bedding and the sheets were exceptional. Creative, delicious breakfasts. Lots of food.
Thank you so much for the great review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. As our goal is to provide 5-Star experiences please let us know if there was anything we could have done to have improved your stay with us, although based on your wonderful praise that doesn't see very likely. We hope to see you again soon and thank you for sharing your comments with future visitors.

My husband and I spent one night on a little mid-week getaway. It was lovely. Duncan and Russ are excellent and friendly hosts. Breakfast was super. This is great location from which to explore Warren Street, the galleries and shops. Hudson needs more merchants open on days other than Sat and Sun.
Thanks for sharing your comments with us. We constantly strive to provide 5-Star service and would welcome any feedback you might have that would have helped us accomplish that during your stay. We agree wholeheartedly and wish more of Hudson's stores were open mid-week, which is clearly beyond our control. Regardless we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Again, thank you for the nice review and we hope to see you again to earn that "5th Star"!

We were looking for a quick getaway from NYC to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and recharge, but only had 24 hours...this hit the spot! The Esselstyn Suite, with it's comfy king bed, bay window, large soaking tub, and fireplace was just what we needed. Thanks, Duncan and Russ, for your hospitality and maintaining such a gorgeous property! We will return! Jeff & Mark
J&M: Thank you SO much for the amazing review! We're so happy you enjoyed your short trip to celebrate your anniversary so much and that The Croff House could provide you with all you needed to relax and enjoy yourselves, including all the in-room amenities. We hope to see you again before your next anniversary (birthday, perhaps?), but until then Congratulations on 10 years and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks a million!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Croff House. The rooms are nice sizes and the beds are very comfortable. So cozy. The two living rooms are great and we even built a fire one night. Actually, we didn't build it--we just lit it because it was already built and ready to go. The rooms with the gas fireplaces are extra special. The hosts were thoughtful and easy-going. And best of all, the breakfast was absolutely delicious. We thought the price was a bit steep, but we certainly enjoyed every minute we were there.
Thank you for the wonderful review - we truly appreciate it! We're so pleased that you enjoyed all aspects of your visit from your guest room, to breakfast, to all the amenities we include to make a stay at The Croff House memorable. With all the cold weather we've been having both the gas fireplaces as well as the wood-burning fireplaces are a real plus. While The Croff House is certainly not the least expensive option in town, we believe with all our added amenities and services it is certainly worth it. Once again many thanks. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We had such a fabulous time at the Croff House. The room was spotless, the bed was incredibly comfortable, the fireplace made it the perfect romantic weekend. The bathroom was beautiful with a stained glass window and huge soaking tub.
H&S: It was so wonderful having you stay with us, and we thank you so much for the stellar review! We feel so happy when guests describe their stay using words like "spotless", "comfortable", "romantic" and "beautiful" - that it makes our efforts that much more worthwhile. We hope that you will come stay with us again soon. Until then, thanks again so very much and be well!

Duncan & Russ were great hosts with lots of helpful advice about what to see & do in Hudson. Our room, although maybe a little smaller than we were expecting from pictures, was really beautiful & comfortable nonetheless. We especially loved the fireplace and the big, elegant bathroom with clawfoot tub! The house itself is warm & inviting & wonderfully decorated... the owners have obviously put a lot of love into it. We would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much for sharing your comments and experience with us at The Croff House. We apologize if of the pictures on our website in any way did not accurately reflect the size of your room, but are glad you found it met your needs just the same. We're so pleased that all of our services and amenities were useful to you as well. Looking forward to seeing you again we thank you for your review and wish you all good things in the New Year!

Very clean, comfortable. Exceeded our expectations. Would definitely return to stay here.
Thanks so much for the stellar review! We're so glad The Croff House and all the services and amenities we provide exceeded your expectations. Until next time be well and Happy 2014!

We stayed at The Croff House over the weekend of Dec 6-7 and had a wonderful time! We booked the Esselstyn Suite and we loved everything about the room - the fireplace, the soaking tub, and the comfortable bed! We also happened to be there during Hudson's Annual Christmas Walk so we were able to enjoy the festivities as well. It was a lovely weekend getaway and we look forward to coming back! Guy & Liza
G&L: What a phenomenal review - thank you so very, very much! It seems your stay, from the bed on up, made your stay a memorable one. Winter Walk is a fun kick-off to the holiday season, and we're so happy you got to experience this little slice of Americana right here in Hudson. We hope to see you back soon, but until then thanks a million. Happy Holidays and all the best in 2014!

We recently spent a winter weekend at the Croff House. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the house has lots of Victorian charm. The stand out was the daily breakfast. Each breakfast was truly exceptional by B&B standards--multi-course and served to each table by the innkeepers. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would consider a return visit. My only negative comment is that I felt that the innkeepers (Duncan and Russ) could have been a bit "warmer" at times. They were certainly helpful and professional, but they tended to keep their distance. On the plus side, they gave guests their space--which is sometimes an issue at a small B&B.
Thanks so much for the great review. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay and all we do to make a visit to The Croff House special. We do try to give our guests "space" to enjoy the inn without having us hover over them, especially if they are staying with us for a romantic getaway. We sincerely apologize if this came across as being distant. Thanks for the feedback, and we hope to see you again soon! All the best wishes to you for a happy and healthy holiday season!

Duncan and Russ run a fabulous B&B in Hudson. They are extremely gracious and accommodating hosts, who make your stay wonderful, while also giving you privacy. The meals were both delicious and I plan to return to the Hudson in the future.
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience at The Croff House with future guests. We always strive to provide 5-Star service and would love any feedback you can provide in how we could have better served you, although based on your comments it seems like we delivered fairly well. We look forward to seeing you back again soon. Until then be well and thank you.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a post-Thanksgiving away from NYC and couldn't have been more pleased with The Croff House! Duncan and Russ set up a great B&B here. They served excellent breakfasts, the beds were very comfortable (we actually didn't leave the room four first day until the evening), and the room was properly isolated from the rest of the house. The only real concern had less to do with the Croff House and more to do with getting there as getting in and out of Hudson was a little more of a challenge than we thought. To be fair, that may have been on us. Definitely worth the money and we're hoping to come back when the weather warms up.
Thanks so much for the sensational review! We're so happy you enjoyed your post-T'giving getaway. Glad that everything at The Croff House met your needs so well. Sorry to hear navigating Hudson was a challenge - sometimes GPS's bring people in a kind of wacky way (oh technology!). We look forward to having you back soon. Until then all the best this holiday season and in 2014!

We stayed at the Esselyn suite. Very spacious and cozy room, beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious, and service was wonderful.
R&T: Our greatest thanks for the spectacular praise! We are so happy T's birthday weekend was so much fun for you both and that it made turning another year older worth it. We hope to see you back again before the next birthday rolls around, but until then thank you so very much. Happy Holidays and all the best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous 2014!

Upon our arrival at the Croff House Bed & Breakfast we were greeted by Russ. He gave us a warm welcome and a tour of the house. Russ also gave us a map of the town along with recommendations of great restaurants. The breakfast and hospitality were beyond outstanding. The house is gorgeous and clean. It is only a few short blocks from Warren Street which makes it an easy stroll down to all the restaurants and stores.
Thank you so very much for the incredible review - we truly appreciate it! We're so happy to enjoyed your weekend getaway with us and were able to both relax at The Croff House and explore all the wonderful shops, restaurants and galleries that Hudson has to offer. You're right, being so close to Warren Street makes everything so convenient. Once again many thanks and all the best to you this Holiday season and in the New Year!

Hospitality was wonderful and so was the breakfast....
Fabulous and wonderful - two of our favorite adjectives! Thanks so much for the kudos, we really appreciate it. Happy Thanksgiving!

Our second stay at the Croff House and the quality hasn't changed. Top notch. Looking forward to our next visit.
Thanks for yet another great review! We really appreciate you taking the time not once but twice to share your enthusiastic comments about The Croff House with future visitors. More importantly we're so happy that your second experience was just as good as your first, a measure we take very seriously. We hope to see you both back again soon. Until then thanks so very much and all the best this Holiday season!

We stayed here for our third time and they never fail to roll out the red carpet. They always make us feel special. The inn is beautiful, festive, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is delicious. My husband commented on how comfortable the bedding was. We both had the best sleep while visiting.

My husband and I stayed at the Croff House B and B in Hudson, NY last weekend. He and I have traveled considerably and have stayed in many lovely inns and B and B's, however, the Croff House stands out as simply the best! It is a jewel of a bed and breakfast: gorgeous period decor, fabulous three course breakfasts, and friendly, courteous staff who are attentive, yet reserved. There are lovely shops and fantastic restaurants within walking distance, as well as wonderful museums such as Olana and the Thomas Cole House which are a short drive away . Do yourself a favor and visit this glorious bed and breakfast!

Very comfortable , bed and shower were amazing and the breakfasts to die for !! Lovely areas to sit and relax inside and out. Innkeepers very helpful re eating out, places to visit etc . Definitely 5 star accommodation.
WOW! Thanks for the phenomenal review - we really appreciate it! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us at The Croff House and that all aspects of your stay surpassed your needs so well. We hope when your travel plans once again bring you to Hudson you will visit us at The Croff House. Until then thanks a million!

Very gracioous hosts and a relaxed atmosphere. Bed sheets are on my must have list.
Thanks so much. We actually sell the sheets, so if you're interested give us a call. Hope to have you back again!

This was my best of five B&B experiences. The room was clean and nicely decorated, the shower was modern and had great water pressure, and our three-course breakfast was delicious and graciously served. I have a dietary restriction that was accommodated. Only one thing - a slightly larger room with a tub was unoccupied the night we stayed. We asked about it and were told that it was available at additional cost. At other B&Bs in this same situation I have been upgraded for free. Oh well, it was a great experience anyway.
Thanks so much for the sensational review! We're so glad The Croff House met your needs so well and that your so enjoyed our breakfast and service, including making the accommodation for your dietary restrictions. As a rule we don't upgrade guests in fairness to everyone staying at the inn: how to justify why one guest should be upgraded over another guest without having to pay the incremental charge is very difficult. We're glad you rated your stay so highly and hope to see you back again soon!
5 on September 23, 2013
We spent 4 nights at the Croff House and had a great time. Duncan and Russ are gracious hosts at a charming B&B in Hudson, NY. Great attention to details in the rooms. The breakfasts were so good and filling that there was no need for lunch. They made excellent recommendations for restaurants for dinner. It couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommended. Peter and Teresa from New Hampshire.
P&T: Thank you so very much for the sensational review - we really appreciate it! We're so happy you enjoyed your min-vacation with us and that The Croff House so well suited your needs as a home base from which to explore Hudson and the Hudson Valley. Very glad too that breakfast was a treat for you and that it got you started off on your (very busy) days on the right foot. We hope to see you back again soon. Until then Happy Fall and thanks again so much!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Croff House, and hope to be back. It's in a convenient location for walking to town, the rooms were lovely, and the breakfast was great. I was especially impressed with the mattress--I think I could have slept there all day--and the porch, which had a fragrant flowering vine climbing over it, making it the perfect place to spend a late summer/early fall evening.
A&L: What an outstanding review - thanks a million! We're so happy that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay with us at The Croff House and that the inn and Hudson were just what you were looking for. Our guests find the fall clematis growing on the front railing of the porch such a fragrant welcome, and we're glad to see you concur. Hopefully you will come back to stay with us again soon. Thanks again so very much and be well!

We don't often do B&B's but are so glad we did here at The Croff House. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived and throughout our stay. We enjoyed the privacy they afforded us and the home is just beautiful. Russ and Duncan are the perfect hosts and we felt right at home. We highly recommend their B&B for your stay in Hudson, NY. Pat&Bill
P&B: Thanks so very much for the amazing review. We are thrilled you had such a wonderful stay with us and that you enjoyed yourselves so much. Our goal is always to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable and based on your comments we were able to do just that. We hope to see you back again soon. Until then much thanks and appreciation!

we had a great time staying at the Croff House! everything was perfect, and breakfast was amazing!!!! I have stayed in hotels all over the world and not even a $800 per night room compares to our stay at the Croff House.
Wow! Thanks a million for the phenomenal review - we really appreciate it! It really makes us feel all our efforts are well spent when a guest recognizes what we do to make a stay at The Croff House special. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you will come back and visit again soon. Once again thanks a million!

I recently got married at Apple Barn Farm and in the wedding planning process spent many many nights in Hudson. We decided to stay at the Croff House the weekend of our wedding because of Russ and Duncan's outstanding service and their attention to detail. It's a beautiful house that comes with impeccable amenities and delicious breakfasts. I highly recommend to anyone looking for the best in Hudson.
Thanks so much for sharing your stay with us at The Croff House with potential guests. We take great pride in the inn and our services we provide, always striving for 5 Star. While we appreciate the 4-Star review, we're a bit bewildered that "the best in Hudson" did not merit a 5th Star and many of your comments seem to indicate a higher rating. Nonetheless we thank you for the great review and hope to see you back soon!
3.4 on September 05, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at The Croff House very much. The proprietor was not there when we arrived (around 7pm) but had left a welcome letter and key for us. The room was clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The window air conditioner was more than sufficient on an August night. And the breakfast was fantastic! I loved that the dining room was set up with individual dining tables so we didn't have to engage in too much early morning banter with strangers. The food was really wonderful. We were so full we had to skip lunch. If we're ever in Hudson again we'll be sure to make a repeat stop.
Thanks so much for the review, although reading your comments we're not sure how you rated your stay only 3-Stars (fantastic and really wonderful, for example). We are glad you enjoyed your stay, however, and hope you will come see us again in the future.
4.2 on September 01, 2013
Lovingingly restored B&B in emergining Hudson, NY. The hosts/ owners were incredibly gracious and helpful with advice about the surrounding area. A short walk to Warren Street and all the 'foodie' restaurants makes this B&B a perfect destination for a few days retreat. A side trip to Olana completed our Hudson River Valley experience.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with future guests. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and are sorry some elements of Hudson did not meet your liking. We hope to see you back again soon.
4.8 on August 29, 2013
The location was very convenient to walk to the main street and see all the shops and restaurants. The rooms were very nicely and thoughtfully appointed, and a tasteful departure from typical b&b Victoriana. Breakfast was lovely-- more than I could eat, and the hosts were friendly and helpful-- they understand how to pay attention to the details on every level. Few places are as well and thoughtfully run as this.
Thank you so very much for the awesome review - we really appreciate it. We're glad you enjoyed your stay so thoroughly from the property itself to our breakfasts and our service. A great deal of effort is put in to making sure all the details are covered, and we appreciate you recognizing that in your comments. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Until then please accept our thanks and appreciation!

Comfortable; very helpful hosts, nice old house, and by the time you get there the town will finished paving the road. Very good breakfast.

Really personalized service and great amenities
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Went to Hudson for a weekend and loved staying at the Croff House.
Hey - thanks for the 5-star review! We really appreciate it and hope you'll visit us again soon!
4.2 on July 17, 2013
The room had a very nice bed and linen. The living room and library was inviting and comfortable to use. The breakfasts were out of this world. Hudson is very convenient to many Hudson Valley sites. At the time we were there, the inn keepers were opening a new hotel in town. We found quite a bit of dust and cobwebs in the living room which is why I rated it lower. The room was very clean.
5 on July 17, 2013
Our stay in the Esselstyn Suite, complete with a "fainting couch," was so pleasant! Russ was warm and welcoming and impressed us with his knowledge of the history and architecture of Hudson. Our breakfast, prepared by Russ, was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We would definitely stay there again!
4.4 on July 15, 2013
Beautifully appointed, elegant, lovingly restored Victorian inn, near restaurants, antique stores and all the "action" in Hudson. Duncan and Russ are helpful and approachable, free with recommendations on where to eat and what to do, but not intrusive -- and the breakfasts are as elegant as the decor. The backyard porch and garden are a bonus feature.
5 on July 11, 2013
This lovely, convenient bed and breakfast is perfect. The hosts are very friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to do/ where to eat. The homemade double raspberry muffins started a wonderful breakfast of fruit, quiche and potatoes. Great coffee, and a shaded porch for reading outside. Yeah.
Yeah is right! Thanks for the phenomenal review and the wonderful comments. We're so happy you had such a wonderful time with us at The Croff House and that everything was 5-star. We hope you'll come back to see us again soon, so until then many thanks and enjoy the rest of your summer!
5 on July 09, 2013
My husband and I spent our wedding anniversary at the Croft House. It was really divine and Duncan and Russ were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts were particularly delicious, fresh and festive.
Thanks a million for the stellar (pun intended) review! We love seeing words like divine when a guest describes their stay with us and are so happy The Croff House so highly met your needs. We hope to have you back again soon. Until then many thanks and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Anyone can provide a comfortable bed for the night. But it takes a genuinely committed innkeeper to also include a delicious and creative breakfast, which is what you'll find at the Croff House. Duncan is warm, welcoming and gracious, exemplifying the best traits of inn-keeping. He goes above and beyond with his breakfasts of locally sourced eggs, bacon, fruit and cereal mixtures. Starting your day in Hudson at his breakfast table enables you to greet everyone you meet with a smile.
4.4 on June 17, 2013
Croff House was a delight. Duncan could not have been nicer or more helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The only drawback was that the Edmonda room in which we stayed was very tight quarters - no room to put suitcases, no table or desk. On the other hand, the bathroom was beautiful with an elegant shower - including a stained glass window!
Thank you so much for the great comments and feedback. Our Edmonds Guest Room is the smallest in the house and is also the least expensive and we're sorry if you felt there was not enough room for all your belongings. We're glad the rest of your stay met your expectations and hope to see you again in the future. Thanks again.

Took my wife for her birthday to Hudson and stayed at the Croff House. I didn't know much about the town but discovered it in an online search. What a great find - off the beaten path so it was very quiet but close enought to walk to everything. We didn't have to use our car for 3 days. Duncan was extremely helpful. We had an issue with the a/c the first night and he was on it first thing the next morning. We were both impressed! Thanks for a great stay and a fabulous weekend.
4.6 on June 10, 2013
The attention to detail is outstanding - what service! Russ and Duncan truly love what they do and make you feel at home immediately.
Thanks so much for the "short and sweet" but nevertheless fantastic review! We do love what we do and we appreciate you calling that out. We pride ourselves on making our guests feel welcome and at home. We hope to see you back again soon. Thanks again so much!
4.2 on June 05, 2013
Duncan and Russ are wonderful, warm hosts. We stayed in the Chace Suite and LOVED the bathroom. Also, there was a turndown service and our rubbish bin was emptied regularly. The inn was very clean. The hosts also gave us lots of directions and recommendations (dining, hiking). The only disappointment was the breakfast. Although it was beautifully presented, there was no emphasis on local seasonal ingredients and it was way too sweet for our tastes (ex-yoplait yogurt).
5 on June 01, 2013
Croff House is a little gem on the Hudson (or very nearby). While the actual premises are gorgeous and the rooms lovely in every way (tastefully decorated and very well-appointed), it is the owners that truly make the place : Russ and Duncan are warm, welcoming and witty -- and very knowledgeable about the region, its history and its attractions including all the best restaurants … and some juicy local town gossip. And their breakfasts are divine. All in all a wonderful experience (coming from someone who has not always enjoyed the particular intimacy that comes with Bed and Breakfasts)
We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us so much and genuinely thank you for such a stellar review! Both of us are more than happy to share with our guests all the things that we think make Hudson such a great destination, starting with The Croff House. We hope to have you back again soon! Until then be well and much thanks and appreciation!
5 on May 30, 2013
Staying at The Croff House was truly a delightful experience. The room was small but quite nice, the bath amenities were top notch, the 3 course breakfast was delicious, and the owners couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I would definitely stay there again!
5 on May 27, 2013
Had a great stay at Croff House. Breakfast was delicious. Room and bathroom were very clean. Lots of extras--candles to light at night, turn down service, lighted make up mirror, waterfall shower, and more. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Would stay there again and recommend to friends.
4.8 on May 05, 2013
My wife and I came to Hudson for a short honeymoon and absolutely loved staying at the Croff House. The place was immaculately kept, the house and the room were charming and the breakfast was incredible (more like a 5-course meal). Duncan and Russ were terrific hosts and all of their recommendations on dining in the area were spot on. Can't wait to come back!
S&S: Thanks so much for spending your "mini-moon" with us at The Croff House and for the awesome review as well. We know how much time and effort go into planning a wedding and are so happy our inn provided the rest and relaxation you so earned. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Once again many thanks and much congratulations!
4.6 on May 02, 2013
Russ and Duncan were thoughtful, attentive and very helpful. The house is beautiful and comfortable and quiet. Thoroughly recommend this bnb and Hudson as a perfect base to explore the Hudson River valley.
Thanks so much for the fantastic review! We're so glad you enjoyed yourself and your stay at The Croff House and hope to see you back again soon. Thanks again!
4.4 on April 29, 2013
Had a wonderful stay here recently and can't say enough about owners Russ and Duncan. They are a wealth of information and strike the perfect balance of being helpful and available but giving you your own space. The breakfasts are too good to be true and the our room was comfy and well equipped with flat screen TV and thoughtful amenities like a toothbrush (in addition to the more expected ones). It's a short walk to town and I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend Croff House.
4.2 on March 25, 2013
Love love love love love this quaint B&B! The breakfast was immaculate - thanks Russ & Duncan for the perfect presentation and delicious meals!
Well....you're welcome! Thank you for the terrific review! We're glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you back again soon! Until then, thanks!
5 on March 11, 2013
We travelled to Hudson to visit the Olana Partnership and were amazed at the service that we got from the Croff House Bed & Breakfast. Russ and Duncan were so pleasant to work with in arranging our stay and made a delicious (and very filling) breakfast for us the following morning. Would definitely recommend the Croff House to anyone visiting the area.
Ladies: Thanks for the wonderful review! Who says you can't have a good time even on a business trip? We're so happy you were able to enjoy The Croff House during your short visit to the area. We appreciate all recommendations and thank you again for the great review. We hope to see you back again soon!
4.4 on March 06, 2013
My girlfriend and I had a great stay at the Croff House! We stayed in the Chace Suite, which had a large, beautiful bathroom and gas fireplace, which heated the room nicely. I would highly recommend staying here! Russ and Duncan were very accommodating :)
Thanks for the great review. We're so glad you had a good time while here in Hudson. Even though this time of year is our slower period there is still a lot to do and see. We hope to see you back again. Until then, thanks so much.
3.8 on February 23, 2013
We very much enjoyed our long weekend stay at the Croff House in January. It was our first trip to Hudson and Russ and Duncan provide an excellent place to stay, relax, and set out (well fed) on adventures to enjoy the area (great recommendations for restaurants in town). Thanks for the cozy fires, too!
L&F: Thanks for staying with us yet again, and for posting such a nice review, although we're a little confused. Your rating here was good, but on TA was all 5 Stars. Either way we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We wish you the best of luck with the new little one and we hope to see you again soon!
5 on February 11, 2013
I had the pleasure to stay at The Croff House B&B due to a business trip in Hudson, NY. The rooms in the Old Victorian House are amazing. What is nice is you park the car and can walk to the restaurants You feel like you are at home while enjoying all the amendites that Russ and Duncan offer. Wow says it all about the breakfast we were served in the morning. I could not pass up purchasing the homemade soy candles and can goods they offered their guest. If I have the opportunity to be in this area again, I will be seeing Russ & Duncan.
5 on February 10, 2013
I took my boyfriend upstate for his Birthday weekend. We loved the Croff House. It was about as idyllic as it can get. A beautiful Victorian home with beautiful rooms and friendly hosts. Hudson was adorable with fantastic restaurants and great shopping. Also, checked out Olana Historic Site at the suggestion of our hosts. We will be back many times. This is the place you want to stay. Did Imention how amazing the bathtub was???
What a sensational review! Thanks SO much. We're so happy you guys had such an amazing time at The Croff House and in Hudson. It fun to share what we enjoy about the town with visitors and let them discover new things too. Until we see you next time, thanks a million!
5 on January 24, 2013
My husband and I stayed at The Croff House for 4 nights, just before the New Year. Duncan and Russ were great and extremely accommodating. For instance, my husband had some specific dietary requests and they were able to ensure he could enjoy the wonderful breakfasts without concern. We very much enjoyed our stay in a snowy, quiet Hudson and The Croff House was a big part of that!
J&C: We thank you SO much for the awesome review! It was great having you with us as we got ready to ring in the New Year! We're so please you enjoyed The Croff House. It was our pleasure to make sure C was able to enjoy all of the breakfasts and we appreciate your acknowledgement of our efforts. Hopefully you'll be able to come back to Hudson soon and, when you do, we look forward to welcoming you back! Until then, thanks a million and all the best for 2013!
5 on January 16, 2013
Amazing rooms with huge comfortable beds and luxury showers. Breakfasts freshly made that include homemade yogurt with fruit, sausage and homemade waffles with homemade whipped cream and cherries. Everything fresh! Take all that and add the great service of Russ and Duncan who will lead you in the right direction in the area and this B&B is the best out there.
WOW! What more can we say?! Thanks a million for the spectacular review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us (and remembered everything in such detail!). It makes our efforts so worthwhile when guests recognize all that we do to make a stay at The Croff House special. So, again, thanks and WOW!
4.6 on January 16, 2013
We spent about 5 days at the Croff House and had a great time. The room was clean and beautiful, the food was delicious, and Russ and Duncan were the perfect balance of being available for questions and leaving you to do your own thing. I highly recommend playing board games by the fire. I recommend the Croff House without hesitation.
We thank you so very much for the phenomenal review! It was wonderful for us to help you enjoy your week away to enjoy both The Croff House and Hudson. We're always pleased when our guests can relax and unwind. Thanks so much, once again. We look forward to having you back again in the future.
5 on January 14, 2013
We found the Croff House answered our every need. The room was warm and cozy reading in front of the fireplace and the bathroom was great. Breakfast was a treat only topped by the hospitality of Duncan and Russ. The location of the Croff House is with in walking distance of everything in town and gives you the opportunity to stroll the streets as if you lived in this charming town. It's an easy trip from NYC and we plan to return there often.
Thanks for the exceptional review! We're so happy you enjoyed your Hudson vacation and that The Croff House could serve as your home base during your stay. It's also great to hear that you enjoyed so much of what makes Hudson such a great destination from the restaurants to the shopping to the cultural scene. We look forward to seeing you back again soon. Until then thanks so much!
4.8 on December 03, 2012
Loved the weekend spent at the Croff House. Our room was beautiful....extremely comfortable, extremely CLEAN. The soaking tub in the room was fantastic. Russ and Duncan were extremely pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was fabulous both mornings. I will definitely be recommending The Croff House to friends.
Thank you so VERY much for the sensational review! It makes our efforts so worthwhile when guests appreciate all we do to make a stay at The Croff House so special. We're happy you enjoyed all that the inn and Hudson have to offer and hope to see you back again soon! Until then our sincerest thanks and best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

We were charmed with our weekend at Croff House- enjoyable hosts, the beautiful house itself, and delights from the wonderful breakfasts to the excellent shower and comfy bed.
Thanks so much for the terrific review! We are so glad that your stay with us was so enjoyable and that all the amenities The Croff House has to offer met your needs. Hopefully we'll you'll come back to Hudson and stay with us again soon. Until then many thanks and all the best this holiday season!
4.2 on November 28, 2012
Russ and Duncan magic you away to a world of comfy sofas next to open fires, breakfasts that awaken your taste buds and set you up for the day and a level of service that leaves you totally relaxed. The perfect place to explore the picturesque town of Hudson or discover the hikes in the Catskills. And return to a house that feels like home. Howard Roberts
H&R: Thanks for staying with us and sharing your thoughts on your visit to The Croff House. We're glad you enjoyed your getaway and hope to see you back again in the future. Happy Holidays!
5 on November 14, 2012
WOW!! What a gem! The inn was beautiful and the breakfast was amazing. Would recommend to everyone. Russell and Dunkin were such a joy. LOVED!!!!
Wow is right! Thanks for the great review - we really appreciate it and are glad you enjoyed your stay so much. Hopefully we'll get to see you again soon. Until then all the best to you for this Holiday season!
5 on November 14, 2012
My partner and I spent a great getaway at Croff House while attending a wedding in the area. The home is beautiful and has been lovingly restored by owners Duncan and Russ. As our hosts, they could not have been more accommodating. From the welcome, breakfasts, tour of the property, and helpful hints around town, they went above and beyond our expectations. If you have the opportunity to visit beautiful Hudson, plan to stay at the Croff House. You will be amazed!
4.8 on November 13, 2012
Excellent location, charming and knowledgeable hosts, relaxing atmosphere, and incredible breakfast! More privacy than I expected for my first stay in a B&B.
What a fantastic review - thanks SO much. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay enough to share your thoughts with future guests and hope you'll come back again soon. Until then our best wishes to you and your family for a happy and healthy holiday season!

I had an incredibly lovely stay at the Croff House. I stayed in the most frugal room and it was amazing. Huge soft bed, incredible spa shower, and appealing decor. The rest of the house is equally pleasant, from the library to the garden. The food was impeccable; Duncan and Russ are extremely knowledgeable and will talk your ear off regarding local history and architecture which was fascinating. I am still enjoying my medium jar of Strawberry Blueberry Cinnamon jam two weeks later. If I ever find myself back in Hudson, there is no question as to my accommodations.
Thanks for the awesome review! We love to hear how much our guests enjoy both our the services we provide and the extent to which they enjoyed the property. We do tend to boast about our fantastic town and its history. So sorry if we were overly chatty about it. Our homemade jams are meant to enjoy and take a little of The Croff House home with you. When the SBC runs out, you know where to come for a refill! Until then, thanks again SO much and Happy Holidays!
4.6 on October 25, 2012
Spent one night with my wife for our anniversary. Russ and Duncan are phenomenal hosts who complement perfectly the charming 19th century victorian house. All comforts and luxuries quietly embedded in impeccable decor. Too bad we only stayed one night. Cannot go wrong with The Croff House.
What a spectacular review - we cannot thank you enough! A one night stay is never enough whether it be for the dining, shopping, cultural events or just relaxing. We are so glad you had a great (albeit short) time here and look forward to seeing you back again soon!
4.2 on October 24, 2012
Russ was very quick to meet us when we first arrived. He made us feel very much at home. Recommending local restaurants was helpful. Being located so near to the main street made walking easy and pleasurable. Over all a fun experience.
Hey! Thanks for the great review! We're glad you enjoyed your time at the inn and in Hudson. We hope to see you back again soon. Thanks again!
4.8 on October 08, 2012
Two years after our first trip to Hudson, NY and the Croff House, we booked the same room for our wedding weekend. Per usual, it was a treat to stay there. We loved the room and Duncan and Russ are always so helpful and accommodating. We unfortunately missed breakfast the morning after our wedding (we were so disappointed!) but we'll be back to experience some delicious home cooking again soon!
E&B: Thanks for another stellar review! We were so glad to have you back and so happy that the two of you chose to start your honeymoon at The Croff House. We know how much time and effort went into the planning of the weekend and were glad you were able to relax. We are sorry you missed breakfast too - but we figured you probably needed the rest from all the festivities. As you said, you'll just have to come back to enjoy what you missed. Until then all the best to you both and thanks so much again!

During our one-night stay at the Croff House, my husband and I were exceedingly impressed: the owner was warm, welcoming, and informative about town (mere blocks away) and area sights; our room (including fireplace) was spacious, impeccably decorated, and thoughtfully well-stocked with electronics and items often forgotten by travelers; multi-course truly gourmet breakfast and endless great coffee topped off the stay. Multiple indoor and outdoor common spaces at the house complete the comfortable stay. The entire house is restored to original architectural glory.
Thanks for the awesome review! We are thrilled you enjoyed you stay with us at The Croff House and were able to take advantage of all the amenities we have to offer. It's always so wonderful for us to have guests who appreciate the property and the details we've tried to think of to make our guests' stay memorable. Hopefully we will see you back again soon. Until then our sincerest thanks for the stellar review!

The room was charming, but we did not/could not watch the beautiful TV...because of it's location in the room. The shower was lovely, the bed was comfortable.The breakfast was odd.
Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We appreciate the feedback. Some of your comment, however, have us confused. All of our plasma televisions are mounted on brackets that enable the television to be pulled out from the wall and viewed anywhere in the room. We apologize if you were unaware of this feature. In 116 reviews we've had our breakfast described many ways, all of them exceedingly positive. "Odd" is, quite frankly, odd. If you would like to contact us at the inn to provide further feedback we would greatly appreciate it.

what a lovely B&B, the proprietors Russ and Duncan have put their heart and soul into the Croff House . The room was beautiful and spotless, the breakfast delicious. I will definitely go back (although it is a popular place and not always easy to get a room)
Thank you SO much for the sensational review! We're glad we had "room at the inn" (this time of year we book up waaaay in advance). We're also so happy that you enjoyed you stay so much from the room to the breakfast. We hope you'll come back and see us again soon. Until then, thanks a million!

Thank you for the great review! So glad you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to provide you with great service during your visit. We hope you'll come back again soon!

We enjoyed our stay at the Croff House from the moment we arrived. We were looking to have a realxing getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room we stayed in was delightful, the service was great, the innkeepers are very friendly and attentive. And breakfast was wonderful. We could not have asked for more. We would highly recommend staying at the Croff House. Ramses and Stephanie
R&S: We are so happy you chose The Croff House to celebrate your Anniversary and we're thrilled with such a spectacular review - thanks so much! This time of year we welcome so many guests celebrating a wide variety of milestones and events and we always hope each one is memorable as it seems your visit was.

My wife and I took a two-day "mini-moon" to The Croff House after our wedding. The house was beautiful, wonderfully restored and comfortable -- and the service was excellent. The proprietors were attentive and friendly and made our stay very pleasant. They even surprised us with a bottle of prosecco to celebrate our recent wedding.
J&K: We're so happy you chose to spend your "mini-moon" with us and thank you for the incredible review! It's always so much fun to help brides & grooms chill out after all the planning and stress of the wedding, and we' re glad The Croff House was able to do just that for you guys. Don't wait until your Anniversary to come back and see us, though. Until next time CONGRATULATIONS and all the best to you both!

We stay here whenever we can travel through the area. The Croff House is a lovely, comfortable, friendly, and homelike, with plenty of privacy.
Thanks SO much for the great kudos! Short and sweet! Love having repeat guests, especially ones so appreciative of what we offer. Thanks again and see you soon!

The Croff House is a B & B with all the comforts of your own home, as well as the style and elegance of a 5-star boutique hotel. Loved my stay at this charming B & B!
We thank you so much for the awesome review! When a review includes such wonderful words as "elegance", "5-Star" and "charming" what's not to love? We're glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you back again soon! Thanks again, so much!

Ducan and Russ are consummate hosts; they welcomed us warmly even though we were only there for one evening. Lots of thoughtful touches in the room and everywhere. The Inn is beautiful; we would have liked to stay longer. Recommended!

Hands down, the best B&B we've ever stayed at. The house is lovely, the rooms are spacious with a lot of character. The devil is in the details and Russ & Duncan nailed the details. They are lovely hosts and I can't think of a single reason not stay here again.
Thanks for taking the time to review you recent stay with us. We take guests' ratings very seriously and would appreciate any feedback you can provide us, especially with regard to the cleanliness of the property which we take great pride in.

Well run, friendly B&B in excellent, quiet location. Great breakfasts. Room was very comfortable, bathroom was nicely done.
Hey! Thanks so much for the terrific review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have welcome you back again soon.

We recently stayed in Hudson for the weekend and have to say that it is the best service we have ever had at a B&B. Duncan and Russ were incredible hosts and the breakfast far exceeded our expectations, thought we would be given coffee and a muffin, but to our surprise we had a full breakfast which was amazing! Breakfast at Croff House was the best food we had while in Hudson. If you want great service and a great meal to wake up to, stay at Croff House.
Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. While it seems so much of your stay was excellent, we pride ourselves on providing 5-star service to all our guests and it appears we fell short in several areas. We greatly encourage guests' feedback and would appreciate hearing how we could have improved your stay. Again, thanks for your positive comments and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

My husband and I received a gift certificate for this B&B. We didn’t know what to expect. We left NYC really late and we were worried about getting into to the house. We called the house. Ross and Duncan were very nice and told us not to worry. They were going to leave all the direction at the entrance for us. Once we arrived the directions were at the door. Next morning they were very nice and had breakfast ready for us. They knew our names and give us directions and recommendations for what to do around town. The room was very clean and comfortable. Overall, we had a great experience. Definitely we will go back. They made our stay great!.
C&K: Thanks for reviewing your recent stay with us. We're happy you enjoyed your stay and were able to use your gift certificate on such a lovely weekend. Our "self check-in" takes the stress out of later arrivals and we're glad it met your needs so well. We hope to see you back again soon. Until then, thanks again.

My wife an I have been staying in B&Bs for over 40 years. We like the informality and comfort they provide, as well as the chance to meet other interesting people, including the innkeepers. The Croff House is no exception. In fact it's one of the best we have ever had the pleasure to stay. Everything is top class - service, food, friendliness and comfort. Can't recommend it enough. And the town of Hudson is a real gem - full of historic architecture and very well situated to see everything on the Upper Hudson River Valley. Duncan and Russ are wonderful hosts and very knowledgable about the area. Dave & Linda Rosenbloom
D&L: Thanks for the superlative kudos - we really appreciate it! We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves and it was such a pleasure to meet you and have you stay with us. We so appreciate it when our guests acknowledge all we do to make their stay memorable. Thanks lots and we hope to see you back again soon!

From the moment we stepped into the Croff House we felt very comfortable and revived after a long day of driving. Our room was lovely and our spa shower very relaxing. Russ and Duncan had suggestions for dinner within walking distance and the restaurant we decided on was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious, served beautifully and we had a chance to chat with the owners. Lovely garden and fountain added to the relaxing atmosphere. Nance, Portland Maine
N&C: Hey ladies - thanks SO much for the super review! It was great having you stay with us, you are both such lovely people - friendly and easy going. We're glad you had such a nice time, especially after the circuitous route you were sent on to get here. Now you know they way we hope to see you back again soon! Until next time - many thanks!
4.6 on July 16, 2012
There is a great attention to detail. The interior is full of original detail however new bathrooms and upgrades to accommodate technology make the Croff Inn extremely comfortable. There is a lovely garden with a fountain which is a lovely place to sit and read. Breakfasts are great. Each morning Russ and Duncan serve home baked muffins, fruit and yogurt and an entree. Saturday morning was a great baked french toast and Sunday, huevos rancheros. They are incredible hosts; friendly and attentive but in a quiet respectful manner.
N&S: Thanks for stellar review! We're so glad you enjoyed your weekend with us, especially the breakfasts and amenities we offer. We hope that when you need another break you will think of us. Until then, thanks again so much!

We were there for two nights of our vacation as we toured the FDR home, Hyde Park, FDR Presidential Library, Val Kil and the Vanderbilt Mansion. Our room was nicely furishhed, very clean, and the service was excellent. The breakfast's were among the best of our vacation in New York. The reccomendations as to where to eat in Hudson were also excellent. We would reccomend this B & B to those staying in the area.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a great review - we really appreciate it. We're happy the inn could serve as your "home base" while you toured the area. Thanks for the recommendation, too! We hope to have you back again soon.

Russ and Duncan are the sweetest, most considerate B&B owners. We felt so welcome and completely taken care of. Our room was spacious and the claw-footed bathtub (Chase Suite) was divine. Breakfast, prepared and served by our hosts, was fresh orange juice, muffins, almond-butter pancakes with a mixed berry topping, and sausage. The coffee is organic and delicious. I also noticed an extensive selection of teas. We enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch during the afternoon and lounging in the backyard at night while we gazed at the stars. Our hosts were both there to welcome us to Hudson and to see us off. They were gracious and kind and guess what!? We already booked another weekend at the Croff House!
J&M: Thanks for the spectacular review! You guys were wonderful guests and it was such a pleasure having you. We so appreciate when guests acknowledge all that we've done to make The Croff House a special place. So happy too that you enjoyed the performance at Helsinki Hudson, but we're even more happy that we're going to see you again in a few weeks. Thanks so much and see 'ya soon!

My trip to Hudson almost did not happen since my original lodging of choice had no vacancy. But I was determined to take my solo vacation. The Croff house and a few others had vacancy for my weekend of choice so my research started all over again. I read reviews after reviews and looked at hundreds of pictures online before I decided that Croff House was a great alternative. After a beautiful and traffic free ride on the Taconic, I arrived at The Croff House. Duncan meet me at the door and gave me a warm and friendly welcome. I got a tour of the the house, which was beautiful, a quick run down of the best places to eat in town and places to avoid, and before leaving me to do my own thing, Duncan encouraged me to make use of all the available space at the Croff House. I woke up to a delicious three course breakfast each morning I was there. On both days I was so stuffed that I did not need to eat again until well after the normal lunch hour. I spent most of my time at the house since the purpose of my trip was to relax. I would either sit on the back patio or front porch but when the bugs got too aggressive, I moved inside with my book or IPad. I remember being outside and Russ got me a glass of lemonade. The perfect drink on a hot day and just an example of the great customer service I received for my stay. The house was 5 minutes away from all restaurants and shops so I was able to walk everywhere. Overall, I enjoyed my stay in Hudson and at the Croff House. I definitely plan on returning and will make sure that this time around I stay an extra day. Thank you Duncan and Russ for a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
S: Thanks for the terrific review - we're so happy you enjoyed your vacation and were able to relax and unwind. You really made good use of all we have to offer from our services to the facilities of the inn, and also got to enjoy what makes Hudson such a fantastic destination. We hope you'll come back and see us again soon. Until then, many thanks and be well!

finding a special B&B outside Westchester, NY for my mom's 80th, was no small feat. Croff House was the pinnacle of a find. It is a beautiful historical house, brought up to date with class, and amenities, yet preserving every historical aspect. Its past is accented with trendy interior design, paint, and decorations, that do not detract one iota from the historical beauty of its interior. The two owners are warmth and personality itself, and bent over backward to make your stay special in their daily hands on approach. From postcards pre-stamped with pictures, to steaming smoked gouda and roasted pepper muffins, to magazines and spa products laid out...every detail is carefully tended too. It is a truly wonderful place, one that leaves you desiring to come back, no matter where you stem from...what more could one ask for...just go.
H&L: To help someone celebrate such a milestone birthday for any innkeeper is such a pleasure, as it was for us. We thank you so much for the spectacular review and are so glad you enjoyed all The Croff House has to offer We wish your mother many more years of health and happiness, and hope to have the pleasure of having you both back again soon! Until then, best wishes and Happy Birthday!

My beloved late grandparents owned this home for many years. It has always been my "dream home", a place I want to own someday. I hadn't been there since about 1988, so it was lovely to return and see "her" in her newer glory. But she still has the lovely structures and quaint appeal. Many things are expertly restored. The bedding, the baths, the luxury was like we were royalty. The pleasure of Russ and Duncan's welcoming charm is a true memory and we treasure our friendship with them. Our young daughters absolutely enjoyed the entire stay. The breakfast was out of this world--melt in your mouth waffles with berry sauce, fantastic sausage (and I'm picky about brands), creamy yogurt and fresh melon. We met some lovely couples while we were there. We certainly will be lifelong friends of TCH and Russ and Duncan. Their recommendation to eat at BaBa Louie's for dinner was spot on!-wonderful people and excellent wine and pizza!
S: What an outstanding review and what a pleasure it was to meet you and your family in a home that was such a part of your adolescence. We're so glad you all enjoyed your all to short stay with us and are so happy you felt "Nana" would be proud of what we have done with the property. Thanks, too, for the great Alaska Cookbook - we hope to use it often either at our house or at the inn. When your travels bring you back east from Alaska we hope you will visit us again!

I work at a major local tourist attraction and we regularly send our out-of-town guests to stay at the Croff House. Our visitors are never disappointed and regularly rave about the exceptional service that Russ and Ducan provide for all of their guests.

Went for a gay marriage i Cattskill on may 20th. Found this wonderfull place to stay in nearby Hudson. What a great weekend
T&K: We thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Since we strive to provide 5-Star experiences for all of our guests any feedback you would like to share with us would be much appreciated.

Wonderful B&B with superb breakfast. My only concern is that it was a hot weekend in Mayand I don't think the rooms had air conditioning.
Thanks so much for the review. We're so glad you enjoyed the breakfast. From what we could tell from the weather forecast it was not going to be that warm during your stay. We felt the window screens to provide fresh air and fans would suffice and apologize if you were uncomfortable in any way. We will be putting our window a/c units back into each room this week. These units allow each guest to control the individual temperature of their own room. Had you let us know you were warm we would have installed the unit in your room immediately. Again, please accept our apologies and thank you for both the feedback and for staying with us at The Croff House.

Thanks so much! Short and to the point!

I've stayed in bed-and-breakfasts all over Europe and in other American cities, but I must say that my experience at The Croff house topped them all. The rooms are just beautiful, with great care given to guests' comfort, from the high-thread-count sheets to the complementary amenities in the bathrooms. I did not expect a hearty breakfast -- I'm used to having some toast and granola thrown my way -- but Russ and Duncan provided a delicious 3-course breakfast that set me up until dinner! They are the consummate hosts, and I cannot recommend their establishment more highly. (The first thing I did when I got back home? I made reservations for next time!) - Julie in NYC
J: What a sensational review - thanks a million! It was so wonderful having you stay with us and are glad that you were able to take advantage of so much The Croff House has to offer as well as sampling so much of what makes Hudson such a fantastic destination. We look forward to seeing you (and D) back again this summer. Until then, be well, and thanks so much!

We recently had our second visit to the Croff House and had a thoroughly wonderful time. It's by far the BEST bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. Russ and Duncan are fantastic hosts. The breakfasts aren't your typical quick meal, but rather a full three courses, all made fresh. The breakfast consists of: 1. pastry, 2. yogurt and fruit, 3. entree with side. They are all carefully balanced out, so if the entree is sweet (eg, pancakes with a vanilla raspberry sauce) then the pastry is savory (eg, parmesan muffin), or if the entree is savory (eg, southwest egg fritada) then the pastry is sweet (eg, cinnamon, brown sugar muffin). Unlimited orange juice, coffee, and tea are also included. For the tea, they offer a very wide assortment of Harney & Sons, which is much appreciated and fantastic. The accommodations are very comfortable and quiet. The house is beautiful. We stayed in the Chace Suite, so got to use it's deluxe tub, which was extremely relaxing. Every day we spent a little time in the large, yet cozy common areas reading. Russ would always have the makings of a fire ready in both fireplaces. if he was around when we sat down, he'd immediately get one started. The location is very convenient to the downtown Hudson area. It's a quick and interesting walk, with the advantage of the seclusion of Willard Place. We will be coming back.
A&M: WOW! What more can we say?! Thanks for such an awesome review! It was so wonderful having you both back to celebrate M's birthday. We always love having fantastic guests such as you both come back to The Croff House again and again. Your comments are so thoroughly appreciated, not only by us but by guests looking for the kind of getaway you describe (and in such amazing detail!). We look forward to seeing you back again in the near future. Until then many, many thanks and be well!

I am happy to share my extremely satisfactory experience in staying at the Croff House B&B on Saturday 1/21/12. Not only is the house beautifully decorated in keeping with the style of the "period" home, the hosts are very kind and quite gracious. Add to that, they cook a "chef" style full hot breakfast that will have you thinking you are in one of the many wonderful Hudson restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay at the Croff House again! (Note: Duncan and Russ - Thank you for your kindness during our stay)....
T&J: Thank you so much for writing such a glowing review. It was wonderful having you stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Until then best wishes and thank you.

My husband and I go to a lot of B&B's and this was easily one of the best. An easy trip from the NYC area, even easier from Westchester, we arrived to find a beautifully redone home with fabulous amenities. Though we had the smallest room, the Edmonds, it was perfect and had the most comfy bed ever. The sense of care taken to make everything perfect was impossible to miss. The inn is immaculately clean. Turn down service included a note about the weather for the following day and a scented candle and matches with a note to take it home to remember our stay. How sweet! While the inn is a tad chilly for me, kept at 67, I fully understand why. 12 foot (or so) ceilings must make it extremely hard to keep warm but electric heaters are in each room and ours was toasty in minutes. The fireplaces in the common rooms are ready to go at any time. Seriously, I cannot think of one things Russ and Duncan didn't think of. I forgot my make up remover and found make up remover clothes in the hospitality kit in the bathroom, along with some lovely high end toiletries. Give me high thread count sheets, pricey toiletries and a firm, yet soft, bed and I am in heaven. Breakfast! What a treat. I was presented with a gluten-free muffin and I know another guest, who was lactose intolerant, had her dietaries needs attended to as well. What service! And all with a smile. From the muffin, to pineapple over yogurt with crystalized ginger to a delicious omelette with potatoes, everything was superb. Even the crash of their instant hot water heater was treated quickly and professionally. The switch over to the old system was accomplished and we had hot water right after breakfast. These guys are on TOP of their game. Professional, courteous, welcoming and they have the good taste to live in a to-die-for Victorian next door. So, if you're thinking of a trip in Columbia County, choosing Hudson and Croff House will more than satisfy even the pickiest traveler.
L&J: What and amazing review! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We're so thrilled you enjoyed yourselves so much. It makes us happy to know that all we do and all we provide our guests is recognized and appreciated. Glad the space heater in the room kept you comfy and cozy, too. Hopefully next time you can make it a longer visit. Until then our sincerest thanks and appreciation for such a stellar review!

The Croff House is the perfect mix between professional and personable. Exactly what you are looking for when you choose to stay at a bed and breakfast. Duncan and Russ are very warm and make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. And the breakfast is outstanding!
J&A: Thanks so much for the terrific review - we really appreciate it! We're so glad you both enjoyed both The Croff House and Hudson and all that we have to offer.

Please don't hesitate to contact us at the inn with any feedback you may have. We look forward to seeing you again soon and wish you all the best in 2012. Again, many thanks.

My partner and I wanted to celebrate our 25th someplace special and The Croff House was just the ticket. We loved the suite, with plush seating, fireplace, super comfortable bed, and the best shower ever. There were fabulous common rooms available for the guests, as well. The breakfasts were divine, and the owners were cheerful and attentive. Hudson was fun to visit, and we easily walked to shops, galleries, and restaurants from our home base. Highly recommended!
N&A: What an excellent review - thanks so much! We're so happy that the inn met all of your needs and that you enjoyed all of the services and amenities we provide. Hudson is a terrific town and we're glad you had the chance to enjoy the performance at Helsinki. We look forward to seeing you both back soon. Again, Happy Anniversary!

Russ and Duncan's love for the Croff House is felt from the moment you walk in th door. We were welcomed in as we arrived and given excellent recommendations for dinner. Our room was so comfortable, and the fire was a nice surprise. A very modern bathroom with top notch amenities. Breakfast is worth a stay in itself! A wonderful start to the day- a homemade muffin, fresh fruit & homemade waffles. Russ and Duncan are a delight. I'm trying to figure out when to plan my next visit!
S&T: What a sensational review! Thanks SO much. We appreciate not only your taking the time to share your experience with future guests but for the wonderful praise and appreciate of all that we have to offer here at The Croff House. It was great to see the fires roaring again. We hope to have you back again soon, so until then be well!

We had a lovely time in this uber clean, sophisticated and surprisingly quiet B&B. Sometimes in an old house you can hear your neighbors and are afraid to make a peep - not so here, they've soundproofed! It was the perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday. Every detail was considered, and every comfort arranged for. The bathroom was modern and spacious, and the large breakfast was absolutely delicious! Just a short walk to great dining at Swoon or DaBa - both absolutely top notch. Also swallow coffee bar had terrific coffee. Russ took great care of us! Thanks to Russ and the Croff House, we will certainly be back.
M&A: WOW! What more can we say other than THANK YOU! We are so glad you chose The Croff House to celebrate Andrew's birthday and hope that it was both enjoyable and memorable (which based on your review...it was!). It's wonderful that you were able to experience a lot of what the inn and Hudson has to offer. We look forward to having you back again soon, certainly before another birthday : )! Until then thanks a million!

Russ and Duncan were fantastic. Their attention to detail and welcoming attitude was amazing. I wish we had more time and more money to stay for longer.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a terrific review! We always strive to provide our guests with a 5-star experience, so hopefully when you have more time you can return for a longer visit and we can earn that 5th star. Until next time, we well and thank you.

This place is wonderful. I have stayed here twice for four and five days at a time because I had to be in Hudson for a conference. I couldn't have been more pleased and wouldn't stay anywhere else now. Russ and Duncan have really thought of everything; from the extra comfy beds with pristine bedding to the toothpaste, writing pads and umbrellas for rain. The house is roomy and feels like there is plenty of privacy. Russ and Duncan (mostly Russ) are around just enough but very are available for problems and concerns. My cousin, who was traveling with me, had dietary limitations which Russ did his best to accomodate. At the end of my stay, Duncan took me to the train station. I loved it. I will go back.
J: Wow! What a sensational review! Thanks so much! It was great having you and Diana back with us for your conference. We so enjoy receiving reviews where guests mention all the "little touches" we include throughout the inn to make our guests' stay special. While we understand the conference isn't being held again next year we still hope to see you back again soon. Until then many thanks!

Croff House and Russ Gibson the host were a great pair. My only observation is that the rails with the fronts steps were unusable. Keith Grover
K: What a stellar review! Thanks a million. As for the rails on the front steps we had considered having them raised but determined it would change the look of the front of the house and would most likely not be approved by Hudson's Historic Preservation Commission. We apologize if it caused you any inconvenience otherwise. We hope to see you again the next time you are "back East". Cheers!
4.2 on October 24, 2011
We stayed for one night in the Peck room, and it was lovely. Russ was a wonderful host and we really enjoyed all the little touches (hand-made candle to take home and weather forecast for the next day at turn-down, pre-stamped postcards, well-stocked bathroom) as well as the delicious breakfast and excellent shower.
A&B: Thanks for the awesome review! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay (albeit short) with us. It always makes us feel good when guests appreciate the attention to detail and amenities we offer and thank you for recognizing them in your comments. We hope you will be back to stay with us again soon. Until then, much thanks and appreciation.

The owners of this B&B are very gracious hosts and strive to make your experience as good as possible. The public spaces are well done and inviting. Our room was small but comfortable. Breakfast was good. The building is a beautifully restored/maintained building within walking distance of Hudson's restaurants and shops. Good place to stay while visiting the Hudson area.
Thanks so much for the terrific review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were able to take advantage of all the inn and Hudson has to offer. We look forward to seeing you back again soon. Again, thanks so much.

We stayed in the Peck room, which was smaller but had an amazing bathroom. Really enjoyed the small touches like the weather card on the bedside table, the free candle, and complete lack of doilies. Breakfast was great and well presented. So many loose leaf tea selections!
Thanks so much for the stellar review. Being The Croff House (yes, a doily-free property) was originally built in the 1870's some of the guest rooms are somewhat smaller than others, making for a cozy night's sleep. Glad you enjoyed the bathroom as well as all the other amenities we provide our guests. Harney and Sons makes such wonderful teas it was hard for us to narrow them down to 22, and even with that we had to eliminate some. We hope you will come back again soon and thank you again for the wonderful review.

The Croff House and its gardens were absolutely beautiful. The owners were wonderful and friendly. The food was just excellent. I don't even know what else I could say! We highly recommend any visiting the area to stay here.
C&J: Thanks so much for the terrific review! We so enjoy having guests such as yourselves who appreciate all the inn has to offer and the amenities we provide our guests. We hope that you will come back for a visit again soon. Until then much appreciation and thanks!

The Croff House was a great honeymoon getaway. The inn and the town of Hudson were everything we were looking for...quiet and quaint, yet filled with culture. Thanks to Duncan and Russ for a fantastic stay. Hope to come back soon!
H&C: It was truly and honor to have you spend your honeymoon with us! We're thank you so much for the phenomenal review, including all that the inn and Hudson has to offer. We can't wait to see you back again. Best wishes on your new life together!

Duncan the innkeeper went out of his way to meet our needs. The house is beautiful and the breakfast was good. Housekeeping could be improved upon.
We're very disappointed with this review, striving always to provide the same level of 5 Star service so many previous guests have reviewed us on. Good for us is not good enough and any comment about the cleanliness is truly a concern (and a first) for us. We would appreciate any feedback you might have and encourage you to call us at the inn at your earliest convenience. We thank you for your candor and look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We look forward to having you back again soon.

One word describes this B & B and that is Excellent. We will go back again. The breakfast is amazing and the innkeepers are so very nice!!
R&B: We're so glad you had an "excellent" time during your recent stay with us and thank you so much for the super review! We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you back again soon (and maybe for a longer stay). Until then thanks so much and be well.

Came for a wedding and had to leave earlt because of Hurricane Irene. Both Russ and Duncan were exceptional hosts and I'd like very much to go back some day in the near future.
S: We totally understand your desire to "get out of Dodge"! You did the right thing by being safe, but we were lucky to have only have had the rain and wind we get during a typical "Nor'easter". Having said that we thank you so much for the terrific review and look forward to the day when you can return and complete the rest of your stay with us. Glad you got home okay! Until next time, be well.

Our stay at the Croff House was very enjoyable and relaxing. The proprietors are very attentive and friendly. We were directed to some excellent restaurants and places of interest. The breakfasts were outstanding. If you love to antique hunt this B&B is a perfect location. Warren St. is situated near the B&B and has many interesting shops to explore.
We truly thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review of your stay with us. It makes us feel that we are doing things right when we hear such positive feedback. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Until then, much thanks and be well.

I recently stayed at The Croff House for 2 nights while in Hudson to attend an event. It's location is perfect. It's on a quiet street but within a few blocks from fantastic restaurants, shops and art galleries. I was greeted very warmly and made to feel right at home. My room was decorated beautifully by someone who really has skill. The bathroom was luxurious and the shower was the largest I've ever used. Finally, I knew I'd picked the right place when I returned from my day of exploring Hudson to smell fresh Snickerdoodles right out of the oven. Delicious!
Thanks so much for the sensational review! We're thrilled you had such a great time at The Croff House and were able to enjoy all the services and amenities we offer. Snickerdoodles are one of D's specialties and you really seemed to have found them tasty. We look forward to seeing you back again soon. Thank you, so much, again.

We had an excellent time at The Croff House. The hospitality by Russ and Duncan was beyond compare. The breakfast was amazing and a real "not to be missed" experience. We loved our stay so much that we made reservations for our entire family for a future stay. We can't wait to return. Cindy and Dennis Smith
C&D: Such a superlative review, we thank you so much! It was such a pleasure having you both stay with us after your attending your daughter's opera performance. We thrilled that you enjoyed yourselves so much that we will be celebrating the New Year with you and your family. We'll do our best to make the start of 2012 memorable for you all. Until then, all the best!

This was our second stay at The Croff House, and we were just as delighted with our experience this time as we were two years ago. It was such a pleasure to return and have it feel familiar and, in anticipation of our visit, know what luxuries and comfort we would have in store. The house is beautiful, the breakfast is fantastic, and Duncan and Russ are lovely. You can't find a nicer place to stay.
T&S: It was so wonderful seeing you both again. As I've said previously the best indication for us that we are doing things that make our guests' experience special is a return visit. So having you back made us feel that you had such a fantastic experience with us before that you returned again, for which we thank you immensely. Until next time...
5 on August 15, 2011
Terrific B&B, chiefly due to the personal attention from Russ, the owner. Great room, excellent location, phenomenal breakfasts.
Short, sweet, and totally appreciated. Thanks a million for the sensational praise! Hopefully we'll see you back again in the future.

For our second trip to Hudson, NY, my husband and I decided to return to Croff House. Not only do we love the comfy, cozy AND modern feeling of the place, we love the two proprietors - and their cooking.
Thanks so much for the wonderful review. One of highest compliments a guest can pay us is to return to the inn, showing us they enjoyed themselves and wanted to experience all we have to offer again. We were so glad to have you back and look forward to seeing you again soon. Until then, again, much thanks.

It's hard to put into words exactly how wonderful our stay was at the Croff House. Russ and Duncan were so welcoming, not to mention so genuinely kind, that it didn't take us long to feel completely at home and totally relaxed. The house is spectacularly restored, and our room was impeccably clean. Russ's breakfast made our (rather expensive) dinner from the night before look like back-of-the-fridge leftovers. Simply put, if you choose to stay anywhere else in Hudson, you are making the wrong choice.
OMG - such a phenomenal review leaves us at a loss for a response other than a simple (and very heartfelt) Thank You. We're thrilled you had such an awesome time during your stay with us and we're so happy that all of our services and amenities exceeded your expectations so greatly. There are so many wonderful inns in Hudson, but it seems what we've created hit the mark for you. Again, much thanks and appreciation until next time!

We stayed one night (Thursday) in Croff House. Two seeks prior to our stay we received an email that we were upgraded to a more expensive room. The old house was beautifully restaured and decorated. Hosts Russ and Duncan were friendly, but wanted to give us privacy. They live in the house next door, leaving the Croff House to guests to enjoy, but they were still available if needed. Our room was beautiful, lovely bed and wonderful bathroom with both big bath tub and high tech shower. Breakfast was delicious; blueberry muffin, cantaloupe salad with candied ginger and sausage with scrambled eggs. Every detail was carefully planned from hand poured candles in rooms to bathroom amenities. We would love to come back some day.
M&G: We're SO happy you had such a wonderful time with us (event though it was such a short stay). We genuinely thank you for your stellar comments about your experience with us at The Croff House. Breakfast seems to have hit the spot. We're so glad you both had such a great time and look forward to seeing you back again soon. Cheers!

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Croff House. Cozy and comfy rooms! Yummy cookies and delious breakfasts. The sevice was fabulous! Would highly recommend the Croff House. Thank you Duncan and Russ :)
We so appreciate your taking the time to write such a stellar review and thank you so much for the wonderful praise. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding service and luxury amenities and it seems like we accomplished just that. Thanks again and we hope to see you back again soon!

I searched the internet for a great place to stay when we went to the wedding of a good friend's daughter. Found the Croff House and then 2 of our friends also decided to stay. Russ and Duncan made the 6 of us feel so welcome! And we were amazed how quickly they remembered which of us was which and who was married to whom! We all loved our rooms. My husband and I stayed in the Edmunds room downstairs... maybe a little smaller than the others, but so light and bright, and a bathroom to die for! Our favorite thing was to sit out on the back porch, listening to the fountain trickle, and feeling the cool breeze. It was so comfortable there, that we could hardly remember how hot and humid it was in the sun! And the breakfasts... oh the breakfasts! Who needs lunch when the breakfast is such a feast??! Thanks again Russ and Duncan!
B&J: What a fun weekend it was and what an awesome review! Thanks so much for the wonderful comments and taking the time to share your comments with others. The Edmonds is our smallest guest room but, as you mentioned, it has become many guests favorite private retreat. It was so much fun having you all stay with us and look forward to seeing you back (so we can earn that coveted 5th star!). Until then, many thanks!
4.4 on July 07, 2011
Russ and Duncan are very warm and personable, and it is clear from the start that every little detail is well thought-out. We were very impressed; the Chase suite is heavenly.
J&J: We're so glad to have met you and thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. While your praise is wonderful it seems there was more we could have done to improve your experience. If there is any feedback you would like to provide please contact us at the inn so that we can do better in the future. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you again soon.

The house was just beautiful and the rooms were too. The bathroom was large and the body spray shower was a nice treat. Our hosts were very friendly and breakfast was delicious. They even gave us muffins for the road. I highly recommend the Croff house, you will not be disappointed.
We thank you so much for the wonderful praise and comments about your stay with us. We are so pleased when guests appreciate all we have to offer during their stay and then take the time to share their experiences with future guests. Providing you with muffins for the road was the least we could do. Next time you have to stay for breakfast. Until then be well and, again, many thanks!

We loved everything about our stay at the Croff House. The inn is incredibly charming and romantic, and has been carefully and meticulously renovated. The décor is warm, modern and all rooms are beautifully decorated. We stayed in the large Esselstyn Suite, which is light and bright with a fabulous bed and even more fabulous bathroom. We especially loved the over-sized soaking tub (bath salts provided) and comfy chaise lounge. The 3-course breakfasts were exceptional – and by far, the best we had on our tour of the Northeast (loved the homemade jams!). Special touches, such as nightly turn down, afternoon tea, and the wonderfully scented homemade candle to enjoy during our stay and then to take with us as a remembrance of our visit, were most welcomed. Having said all this, what really makes the Croff House so special are the owners-innkeepers themselves. Duncan and Russ are quite simply the best hosts you can imagine. They go out of their way to assist with dinner and sightseeing recommendations and anything else you might need. It is evident they have a passion for what they do, which results in an extremely warm, inviting and comfortable place to stay. We were already planning our return trip to the Croff House before we even left, and that speaks volumes about this inn, and why we consider it to be “the best of the best”.
A&R: It was so wonderful to finally meet you in person after corresponding so often through our Facebook Fanpage! Thanks so much for tthe spectacular review! We're so thrilled you guys had such a fantastic time staying with us at The Croff House and are so pleased that you appreciated all the inn has to offer. We're very proud of our service and are glad we were able to exceed your expectations. We look forward to that next visit you mentioned very eagerly. Until then, be well and thanks a million!

Absolutely charming and so relaxing. The owners are wonderful hosts and serve up a delicious breakfast. Very comfortable and definitely a place I would return to.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your comments with us and future visitors. It appears we were not able to provide you with the "5-Star" service so many of our previous guests have received for which we are truly sorry. If you would like to contact us directly to discuss your visit and ways we could improve our guests' experience it would be greatly appreciated. We hope you will return again soon so that we can earn that 5th star!

We stayed at the Croff House in May for one night only on our trip through the Hudson Valley. We were impressed by the thoughtful way the historical building was combined with beautiful interior design and state of the art technique in the room. The hosts are extremely nice and the breakfast was served like a delicous 3 course meal - we loved the idea!
Thanks for the sensational review. We're very happy you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate all the wonderful comments about the inn. We're glad breakfast "hit the spot", too. Hopefully we'll have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon! Until then, many thanks.

The Croff house is a beautifully restored 2nd Empire style home. The amenities are first rate, and the rooms are immaculately maintained. The bathrooms have very up to date fixtures that would be appropriate for a luxury home. Russ was very gracious and helpful with local arrangements.
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. We appreciate all the wonderful comments both about the property and your experience. We constantly strive for "5-Star" service. If there is anything we could have done to make your stay more special please let us know. We look forward to having you back soon.
4.4 on June 19, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay at the Croff House. The location was very convenient and Russ was welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The breakfast was outstanding. We will select this lodging again in the future if we return to the Hudson Valley.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with others. We take our "5-Star" rating/service very seriously and it seems there is more we could have done to make your visit memorable. Any feedback you would like to provide to us in order to improve our services would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We have never such a sevice in our life! Unforgetable and a recomending in the Netherlands!
M&W: Thanks for the fantastic comments. Glad you made it back to Holland okay. We appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with other travelers and hope that the next time you visit your family you will once again stay with us at The Croff House.

We stayed at the Croff House while attending a wedding in the Hudson area. Our room was spacious and comfortable with two chairs and a chaise. We had a huge closet for stowing all our gear -- no tripping over suitcases. The spa shower, king size bed and soaking tub added to the sense of luxurious ease. The Croff House porch, parlor and sitting room gave us plenty of room to relax and enjoy the company of our firends and family who were also staying in the area. Russ and Duncan met our every need and helped make the weekend picture perfect. From turndown service to breakfast to offering directions and making dinner reservations, Russ and Duncan graciously assisted us and made us feel at ease. Take home a copy of Russ' cookbook -- he shares several easy tips for making breakfast a special meal. It's a reminder of a delightful stay at the Croff House.
B&B: What a wonderful wedding weekend it was! We're so glad you chose to stay with us at The Croff House to celebrate the special weekend, and that all of our services and amenities helped you relax and enjoy the weekend even more, including having the opportunity to enjoy all that the inn and Hudson has to offer. We hope to have you all back again soon. Until then, thanks for the awesome review and be well.

Although I more often stay in hotels than B & B's, The Croff House was the best B & B experience I've ever had. From the warm welcome to the superb breakfasts, the lilac scented back porch, inviting common areas, and comfy room (Edmonds), everything was very enjoyable. The house is on a quiet street, in a neighborhood with other eye catching Victorian houses. Just a short walk from Hudson's Town Square and interesting Warren Street.
M: Thanks for the amazing review! We're so glad you were able to enjoy all the inn has to offer, both inside and out (what fantastic weather we had this weekend, too!). Thanks for being the great feedback on some new recipes - very happy you liked them all. So until next time, please accept our heartfelt thanks and we hope to see you again soon!
4.8 on May 17, 2011
We had an amazing stay--so relaxing, the house is breathtaking, and Russ and Duncan could not have been more hospitable. Thank you!
Sometimes a simple "thank you" is enough to suffice. So, thank you!

This was my husband and I first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and what an excellent choice! Duncan and Russ are absolutely the greatest hosts, the house is absolutely gorgeous, the town was great and the weather was perfect! We are already talking about the next time we go back....great..great..place...thank you for making our weekend a special memory!!!
M&K: We so enjoy having B&B "first timers" and are always interested to hear their feedback on the experience and whether it met their expectations or not. Based on your review we've won you over! So glad you enjoyed your stay at the inn as well as your time in town. Happy to hear you are already planning a return visit, which we very much look forward to. Until then, our sincerest thanks for such a super review.

My fiance and I recently stayed at The Croff House for a mini-getaway for her birthday. It was fantastic. Russ & Duncan are friendly, gracious & helpful hosts, and the inn is beautiful, comfortable & homey. Not to mention those yummy breakfasts every morning :). Hudson's also a great town with a lot of fun places to hang out out, and many fine restaurants. We will be back for sure! Loved it! John & Linda
J&L: We thank you so much for the phenomenal review! It was great having you stay with us and hope L's birthday weekend was memorable (based on your review it seems that it was!). Glad you enjoyed our service and amenities at the inn as well as all Hudson has to offer. We're so happy for the two of you and we look forward to seeing you back soon. Until then, our best to you both.

An outstanding B&B. Spending our 40th anniversary at the Croff House was made even more joyful by the innkeepers Russ and Duncan. The Breakfasts were gourmet,the rooms lovely and the entire stay was a memorable one. Thanks for the thoughtful bottle of champagne and your suggestions for Dinner spots and points of interest.This was a wonderful choice for our 40th. We highly recommend Croff House for a great get away!
F&E: Thanks so much for the sensational review. We're so glad you chose The Croff House to celebrate such a milestone anniversary. You were both such wonderful guests with both a great sense of humor and adventure. It's great that you were able to enjoy Hudson as well as Columbia and Greene counties, especially your journey up into the mountains. We hope to see you back again soon (certainly before your 50th!) Until then many thanks and best wishes on your anniversary.

I would never stay anywhere else. This place is amazing. I took my girlfriend there for a weekend away from the city and it met every single need we had. Simply terrific.
Amazing and terrific in one review? All we can say is thanks so much! We're glad you both had such a great time and that we were able to create a memorable weekend for you both. Until next time, again, many thanks!

The house is beautiful....the place was spotless, the hosts were friendly and very accomodating, the food delicious....what more could you ask for:)
Short and sweet! Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your stay with us. We very much appreciate it.

My girlfriend and I consider ourselves to be discriminating travelers. Before every trip, we scour tripadvisor and similar sites scrutinizing reviews in pursuit of a perfect getaway. Many times, we've arrived at a 5-star establishment only to be disappointed (how easily some people are pleased...?!?) We arrived at The Croff House for a one-night stay with our customary skepticism, and in a nutshell...we were blown away. The house is beautiful all around, from top to bottom. And where does it start and end? With Russ, who, quite plainly, seems to have been born for this role. The house is lovely, very well furnished and clean. The rooms are all refreshingly modern, with beautiful updated bathrooms, sleek furniture, and all the amenities (and then some) that one would expect from a 5-star chain hotel. And yet, all of it comes with the personalized doting of Russ, who genuinely seems to love what he does and infuses that passion into everything from the moment you arrive. Afternoon tea, restaurant recommendations, a delicious three-course breakfast (served, to your table, by the host himself), and a personalized goodbye at your car. If you're looking for a weekend getaway within easy driving distance from Manhattan or elsewhere, this is -- plain and simple -- the place to go. We will be back; that's for sure. And we can't wait for Russ's cookbook, to boot!
A&C: Sometimes we get a review and we, quite frankly, are at a loss for words other than to simply say a heartfelt "Thank You". We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us (although it was too short) and are very happy that all of the special details and amenities we've thought of were appreciated. We both take immense pride in the services we provide and the personal touches we offer. We sincerely thank you for acknowledging our efforts. Again, please accept our sincerest thanks! Until next time, enjoy the warmer weather and be well.

We just returned from a three night stay at Croff House. While we travel a great deal we are often reminded of the word travel's relationship to travail. Wonderfully, this was absolutely not the case with The Croff House. This was our first visit to Hudson. From the moment we arrived Russ, one of the two innkeepers, was there with his smile and good humour as well as to ensure we were well taken care of. We stayed in the Chace Suite and it was, to risk a cliché, heavenly. The suite was roomy, the bed was very comfortable, the gas fireplace added warmth and a wonderfully comforting sound. The light was excellent from three windows on two sides of the room. Then there was the bathroom. Although this is a beautifully restored Second Empire home the bathroom boasts a luxurious top of the line clawfoot tub, large glassed in spa shower and beautiful sink along with thick, soft towels. A wonderful way to start or end each day. Finally, there was the service. Each morning Russ and Duncan served three course breakfasts that were gourmet quality, delicious and inventive. Each evening there would be tea and cookies from 4-5. And whenever we had a question they were available and happy to help. There is a telling difference between professionalism and true passion. Both Russ and Duncan fall into the latter category. We are looking forward to having the opportunity to return.
R&G: What a fantastic review. Thanks so much! We really enjoyed having you stay with us and are so pleased that you enjoyed all that the inn, Hudson and Columbia County have to offer. Guests such as yourselves who are so appreciative of all we do at The Croff House make our job that much more rewarding and enjoyable. We sincerely look forward to having you all back and truly thank you for such outstanding praise. Until next time, be well.

Duncan and Russ have created an outstanding B&B that combines the comfort of a meticulously restored Victorian home with 21st century amenities. They are wonderful hosts, with lots of reliable tips on how to enjoy this part of the Hudson Valley. The dazzling breakfasts each day are something you'd expect to find in a first-class restaurant. Highly recommended!
We thank you for the amazing review and sincerely appreciate your wonderful comments. Your praise not only for the breakfasts and the inn but for our recommendations is greatly appreciated and we're so happy to had such an outstanding weekend. We look forward to having you back again soon. Until then, many thanks!

More like a small European hotel than a bed and breakfast, which, for us, is a huge positive. The public rooms are charming and cosy without being confining, good for reading the paper in the morning or a wee dram at night. Our room on the ground floor was cheerful and scrupulously clean. Breakfast was excellent, lemon muffin with a sugar crust, yogurt and strawberries with balsamic vinegar and an omelette. The innkeeper Russ is a lovely guy. We would (and will) return.
G&J: We thank you so much for the fantastic review and are glad you were able to enjoy all The Croff House has to offer even if only for a short stay. Your comparison of our property to a European hotel is extremely flattering, since many hold those places in such high esteem. We're also so pleased that you enjoyed your breakfast so much. Again, many thanks and we look forward to having you back again soon!

The Croff House is a beautiful home that has been restored with beautiful details. Duncan and Bill have created a warm, clean and inviting home. Breakfast was fabulous, the bedroom was very comfortable and the shower was great! We were only there for one night and wish we were able to stay longer. I grew up visiting my grandparents in Hudson and it is wonderful to see the city being revived and these beautiful old homes being so taken cared of and loved. We hope to visit you again. Thank you, Lori and Nick
Thanks so much for the sensational review! We're so glad you enjoyed all the The Croff House has to offer and also wish you could have stayed longer. Hudson is certainly a vibrant, active city with thriving artistic, cultural, and dining elements that make a visit extremely worthwhile. Actually it usually takes most people several trips to take in all the city has to offer, which means you'll just have to come back! Until then, again, many thanks.

The charm and character of The Croff House embrace you like a warm hug. The rooms and bathrooms are just wonderful. The fireplaces create such a cozy atmosphere, you can't help but relax. The breakfasts were delicious and exceeded all expectations. Can't wait to return.
All we can say is "gee thanks" a million. Who doesn't love a nice, warm hug? We so love that description and are thrilled that that's how you felt about your visit with us. Cozy and relaxing aren't bad either. All the elements to make for a great weekend, and we're so pleased that was your experience. We look forward to having you back soon and will have another "hug" waiting for you!

Had a wonderful weekend at the Croff House. Duncan and Russ were both extremely friendly, gracious and helpful during our stay. Our room (The Chace Suite) was lovely and quiet. Tastefully decorated with small, thoughtful touches (bath salts for the tub, a card letting us know the weather forecast for the following day, a candle to take home to remember our stay). The TV in the room was a bit small, but I suppose that's not why you are heading to a bed and breakfast in the first place! Although the house was fully booked, we did not feel crowded or disturbed by the presence of the other guests. The common areas on the main floor were warm and comfortable with plenty of spots to relax and curl up with a good book. Would love to return to the Croff House in the future. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an easy weekend getaway from New York City.
Thanks for the great review! We're so pleased you had a memorable weekend at the inn and appreciated all the things we do to make a stay at The Croff House special. In addition to the AppleTV, iPod docking station and DirecTV in each room we thought more than a 32" HD flatscreen would overkill. As long as you had a great time and are looking to return is what matters to us. Until then many thanks again.

I had my second stay at The Croff House over New Years weekend and was looking forward to the excellent service, welcoming environment, and cozy atmosphere. I wasn't disappointed! Once again, Russ and Duncan exceed my expectations. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time and are looking forward to visiting our friends at The Croff House again soon!
D&D: We loved having you guys back and thanks again for another stellar review! What a great time everyone had over New Year's weekend - festive atmosphere with a terrific group of guests. We're so glad you had an equally wonderful time as your last visit, which is extremely important to us. We look forward to having you back and hope to exceed your expectations once again! All the best in 2011.

The Croff House is an amazing place to stay for a quick getaway from NYC. The rooms are gorgeous and clean, and the hospitality is second to none. I was very impressed with the warm and caring nature of the innkeepers, and their suggestions for places to visit in the area, including dining establishments was right on target. Our stay at The Croff House will be a pleasantly memorable experience for years to come.
We can't thank you enough for the wonderful review! We are so happy we were able to provide you with dinner recommendations and suggestions for things to do during your stay and are so pleased we were able to create a memorable experience at The Croff House. Hopefully you will be able to return again in the near future. Thanks again and Happy New Year!

I only wish we had more time to look around, learn the history of the inn, and spend in Hudson. Duncan and Russ take very good care of their guests. It's a lovely place, restored with historical care but not dripping with Victoriana and dollies.
Thanks for the terrific review. We're so glad you enjoyed the inn and Hudson. We hope to have you back again soon! Until then, Happy New Year!

Charm, convenience, comfort, excellent food, attentive hospitality, relaxation, relaxation & relaxation: who could ask for anything more? My wife and I have stayed in many B&B's and The Croff House was among the best in all respects. Russ and Duncan have achieved that delicate balance between being attentive to guest's needs while remaining unobtrusive. Breakfasts were simply extraordinary. The availability of wireless internet access as well as a wide-screen TV with many recent and current films to choose from added to the convenience of our stay. I really have no complaints about The Croff House and look forward to our next visit.
M&L: We thank you so much for the amazing review and are so glad you both had such a wonderful time at The Croff House. We are also happy that you enjoyed all of the amenities in your room and in the common rooms as well as all that Hudson has to offer. Until next time please accept our sincerest thanks and appreciation.

My husband & I went up to Hudson for a romantic birthday weekend getaway. We wanted to take a tour of Olana and check out the town of Hudson. We booked the Chace Suite at the Croff House Bed & Breakfast. The room was gorgeous and very well appointed from the comfortable bed to the most amazing spa shower to the flat-screen Apple TV. My husband couldn’t get over the fact that there was Apple TV in our room. Every morning our hosts Duncan and Russ served a delicious 3 course breakfast. We also loved the very comfortable sitting rooms on the main floor which we used in the mornings to read a magazine with a cup of coffee. The Croff House is walking distance to Warren Street, Hudson’s main street, and all of it’s shops and restaurants. The Croff House is one of the nicest B&B’s we have ever stayed in and we plan to go back again.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such an awesome review. We're so glad you enjoyed all the amenities The Croff House has to offer, both in your room as well as the common areas. It's great that you also were able to experience so much of what makes Hudson such a great destination. We hope to see you back again in the near future. Until then, Happy Holidays and much thanks.

Croff House is a very well run, well kept B&B in the best neighborhood of Hudson, NY. Perfect Halloween atmosphere including the ghost that turned on our bathroom light at midnight!
L&F: We sincerely thank you for your comments. It seems you didn't have the exceptional experience others have had with us and that there are some areas of our services we need to improve on. We hope you will give us the opportunity to do so in the future. Until then, thank you for the feedback.

We found this B & B most charming and comfortable. The hosts were attentive, but also provided space and accommodations that allowed for privacy and a "home away from home" feel. The breakfast was amazing!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a terrific review. We're glad The Croff House made you feel at home and that you enjoyed the breakfast as well. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Until then, be well.

We stayed at the fabulous 18th Century "Croff House" in Hudson for 1 night (unfortunately). The B&B is fabulously furnished and decorated stylishly to a high standard with special attention to every detail. The bedroom we stayed in was the "Peck" which is spacious, beautifully decorated and includes very comfortable, elegant queen size wood bed. From the moment we went in we felt at home. Charming Russ, the owner, greet us very warmly as if he was waiting only for us and showed us around suggesting his assistance for may ever we might need. Right afterwards, before we even asked he advised us on where to eat, what to do and where to go in the area. We felt like as if we are visiting good friend that gave us the great feeling of being at home away from home! Breakfast was delicious accompanied by good friendly conversation. We have incredibly enjoyed staying at the Croff House and were sorry to leave wishing we would have been able to spend few more days there. We highly recommend staying at the Croff House when ever you plan to visit Hudson Valley. This is the perfect place for a romantic or a quiet leisurely getaway. Don't even think twice!
N&R: What an awesome review! Thanks so much! We're so glad you had were able to stay with us, although only for such a short time. Your wonderful comments about The Croff House and all that we offer and do to make a stay with us so special are genuinely appreciated. We hope tall the photos you took came out great and that you will have fond memories of your visit to Hudson and your stay with us. Until next time, be well and again many thanks.

The house is a wonderful mix of beautiful Victorian "bones" and tasteful, more modern furnishings. Croff House is a perfect blend of sophistication (fabulous showers with 12 foot ceilings, incorporating stained glass; Apple tv, to name a few) and comfort (bolstered by Russ's hospitality). You really are made to feel "at home." If you're visiting Hudson, you must stay at the Croff House. Susan R
S: Thanks for such a great review. We're glad you were able to enjoy all The Croff House has to offer while you were looking at real estate in Hudson. Hopefully you will be able to call our town "home" soon. Thanks again so much!

Our stay at the Croff house was pleasant and peaceful. The building and rooms are beautifully restored and decorated. The porches and outdoor seating space allowed us to chose from warm sunshine or cool shade. I particularly enjoyed the lovely plantings surrounding the in which attracted butterflies the weekend we were there. The innkeepers were available but never intrusive. It seemed as if our every need was anticipated. The breakfasts were divine.
We sincerely thank you for the outstanding review and are happy that you enjoyed yourselves so thoroughly. We're so pleased you were able to spend time both inside and outside the inn and take advantage of all of the property's amenities. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Once again, much thanks and appreciation.

The accommodations at The Croff House are wonderful. Our room was very comfortable and well-appointed. The common areas -- including the garden and back porch -- were welcoming and comfortable as well. The breakfasts were yummy and creative. Restaurants and shops of Hudson are an easy walk from this residential area.
N&D: It was so great having you stay with us, and thanks so much for the terrific review. You both certainly got a lot of exploration done in a few days and probably know more about some of the historic figures in the area than a lot of folks who live here! We're happy The Croff House could serve as your home base after your daily travels and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks so much again.

The owners are amazing and present for anything I might have needed; they were also personal, while very respectful of my space and vacation. The house has been redone beautifully, furniture and decoration warm and tasteful. Russ and Duncan were also very helpful sharing information about the area so I could make the most of my time in Hudson. I will stay here every time I come to Hudson, and might in fact come to Hudson more simply because the Croff House is here!
R: How did you get this posted so fast? Thanks for the terrific review. We're glad you were able to enjoy so much of The Croff House and Hudson in such a short period of time, including catching a yoga class in town. We hope things work out positively after your meeting, which will hopefully mean that you will be back again. We look forward to seeing you again, and thank you sincerely for the great comments about the inn. Until then, be well.

Delightful! Feels like you are staying in your very own Victorian mansion! Russ&Duncan are the best innkeepers one could ever encounter! Breakfast every morn,prepared & served 5 star rating!!! By Russ&Duncan! Lovely front&backporch for relaxing. Homemade cookies,tea,lemonade each afternoon:) Linens,the best! Towels that smell so fresh you want to revert to childhood & carry one around!! I woke first morning back home longing for a cup of Russ's coffee&gourmet breakfast, a view of the colorful,groomed yard...Duncan busy mowing grass & loving every minute! Your heart will long for the Croff house after your stay!
We can't thank you enough for such a sensational review! You guys were great. It's fun for an innkeeper to have such terrific guests who appreciate all we do to make a visit to The Croff House special, and judging by your comments it was just that. We hope the next time you are in the area you will once again stay with us. Until then, please accept our many thanks.
4.6 on July 13, 2010
This is a real jewel! The innkeepers have spared no amount of effort to make staying here a special treat. From carrying your bags in and out, to suggesting wonderful restaurants, to making the bath a luxury, they have thought of everything! The renovation of this house was first-rate and furnishings done with such thoughtfulness. And I haven't gotten to the breakfast, which was the crowning glory! Do yourself and someone you love a favor and book a stay here...you won't regret it!
K&J: Thanks so much for the rave review. We're so glad you were able to include The Croff House on your journey south, but only wished you could have stayed longer. We're thrilled you were able to enjoy so much the inn has to offer in such a short period and appreciate your recognition of all we have done to make a stay at The Croff House special. We hope that when your travels bring you back north you will visit us again. Much thanks and appreciation!

Warm, personable, accomodating to every request. Beautiful house and private retreat on back porch. Walking distance to shops/restaurants
Thanks for the great comments. Hope you'll visit us again soon.

We had a fantastic weekend at The Croff House where Russell and Duncan, the owners, take care of every detail with an easy-going manner. I really liked that the interior decorating is not the typical cutesy B&B style. There's no floral print wallpaper or back issues of Knitting magazine. The bathroom and big soaking tub was amazing. Same goes for the comfy beds and outstanding sheets. Because Russ and Duncan live next door in another house, you don't feel like you have to tiptoe through someone else's house. But they're always at the ready with a great restaurant recommendation or a route for local wine tasting. I highly recommend Croff House for a one-night getaway, or a base for adventures in the Hudson Valley.
D&L: Our first wedding! What a treat it was to help you coordinate all the various elements of your special day. We're so glad The Croff House could host such an intimate affair with such wonderful people. You all seemed to have such a great time that it made it such a fun weekend for us. Glad you enjoyed all the modern touches and amenities we included throughout the inn. We wish you both all the best in your new life together, which we hope will include a return visit soon. Until then, our sincerest thanks and congratulations!

My wife and I stayed at the Croff House in Hudson, NY for two nights in mid-May 2010 with two other couples. We were celebrating 20 years of marriage and the proprietors, Duncan and Russ, made our stay enjoyable and memorable and were always attentive to our needs. They made us each feel special! The guest rooms are very comfortable and the service is first rate. We enjoyed the Victorian charm, comfortable beds, modern baths and gourmet breakfasts. Russ served a rich French toast with his homemade preserves and poached eggs with a mild basil pesto. The home's porches and elegant garden are wonderful places to sit, relax and sip champagne. This is a very special experience and the best B&B we have visited. We eagerly look forward to our next visit.
A&P: You guys (all 6 of you!) were such terrific guests and we were glad we could help make your anniversary weekend memorable. Thanks so much for the wonderful review. We are extremely pleased and honored that your experience with us at The Croff House rated at the top of your list. You all certainly had a full weekend and we're happy that the inn and our service was such a positive part of your visit from beginning to end. Hopefully you all won't wait until the next "big" anniversary to come see us again, whether individually or as a group. Until then, thanks again so much and take care.

Duncan and Russ, the warm and gracious inn owners, made our 20th Wedding Anniversary celebration (3 couples all married in 1990) memorable, enjoyable and relaxing. From our initial contact to our parting good-byes Russ and Duncan were helpful, respectful and kind. We immediately felt "at home" in their lovely Victorian inn. Our rooms were beautiful and comfortable. The breakfasts delicious. Their attention to detail was evidenced throughout our stay and with parting gifts of a handcrafted candle (with matches), "stamped" postcards and inn notepad. The inn is within walking distance of Hudson's delightful main street area with wonderful shops and restaurants. The Hudson Valley also offers many historical sites - we especially enjoyed Eleanor Roosevelt's home and the FDR library. Duncan and Russ know how to treat their guests by just being who they are - delightful and kindhearted people. Thank you we hope to see you again, SOON!
M&R: What a fun weekend! Thanks for such a glowing review and for being such thoughtful guests. You all were such a great group. We're glad you enjoyed the all aspects of inn and amenities, as well as Hudson and the Hudson Valley area. Somehow you had so much to do on your days with us that we were glad we could get you started off with a good breakfast (and lots of coffee : )). We look forward to having you all back and thank you again so much for the outstanding praise.

The beautifully restored Croff House was the ideal spot for a relaxing two-day vacation. Russ and Duncan are the ideal hosts; they've anticipated your every comfort, and they offer generous and gentle hospitality during your stay. Breakfast is a lavish multi-course event served in the light-filled dining room; afternoon fika is a treat with tea, coffee, and cookies, offered in the beautiful and inviting common rooms of the house. Our room (the Chace suite) was incredibly lovely, the bed large and comfortable, and the chairs cozy and inviting, perfect for reading and daydreaming and enjoying the fireplace. It's also an ideal room for early risers that enjoy watching the sky brighten, as I do, with a mug of hot coffee and a book. The bathroom, however, defies adjectives. There was a soaking tub nearly as long as I am tall. There is a glass-enclosed multi-jet spa shower, crowned with stained glass panels. There are robes and piles of towels, white and plush. It is stocked with luxurious toiletries. I have, since my too-brief stay at the Croff House, dreamed about airy, light-filled bathrooms.
WOW! They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but with your review we're not so sure. Thanks so much for the awesome comments. You've truly "painted a picture" of our vision of a stay at The Croff House perfectly without missing a thing. There's really nothing to add except to say that we hope to see you both back soon. Again, thanks a million!

My husband and I went for a weekend away and this was our first B&B experience, but i have a feeling it far surpasses other B&B's. Great location in terms of distance from NYC/ Westchester, and the house itself is a great location in Hudson, as it is walking distance to everything. Russ and Duncan were wonderful hosts, and all of the details they put into making the stay great are lovely. The house itself is stunning, breakfast is a delicious 3 course meal, and the atmosphere is very cozy and inviting. We ate at Daba, Mexican Radio, and CaMea during the weekend and all of our meals were excellent. Looking forward to visiting again in warmer weather!!
C&R: We couldn't be more happy to be the ones to introduce you to the wonderful world of bed and breakfasts. There are so many wonderful properties that offer so many lodging options. We would be selfish to say The Croff House was the only way to go. Having said that we are thrilled that you had such an awesome experience not only at the inn but in Hudson as well. The warm weather will be here soon, and with it we look forward to your return. Thanks again!

My boyfriend and I spent a milestone birthday at the Croff House, and we were very happy to be there! The breakfast was delicious, and the house is so spacious, you rarely see the other guests. It's a perfect place to stay if you want a good nights' sleep in a luxurious bed and a really stimulating shower or bath! (There are multiple shower heads--fun!) A meal at Daba was amazing, we highly recommend that. And a visit to the local stores where you'll see the best furniture around, albeit pricey. Go, and enjoy!! Russ and Duncan will be ever gracious.
Thanks so much for the fantastic review! We're so happy you had such a memorable birthday weekend and that we were able to help you celebrate it in style. From the shower and the breakfast to the beds and living areas you enjoyed all that The Croff House has to offer. Hudson is such a great town and we're glad you discovered some of what makes it special. Hopefully you won't wait for another birthday to visit us again. Until then, be well.

My husband and I stayed at Croff House for a relaxing getaway weekend. This was our first B&B experience and I think we are now spoiled! It was amazing! The Croff House is quaint yet modern with incredible hosts that add to the whole experience. Russ and Duncan have thought of every detail! We loved our room (Esylyn). The bathroom was immaculately clean with a soaking tub and a great shower. Our room had a gas fireplace and a lovely sete by the bay window. It was nice having some modern amenities (wifi, Direct TV, apple TV from which you can rent movies, IPOD connection in the room, spa type shower) at a B&B. Russ and Duncan were wonderful hosts. They picked us up and dropped us off at the train station! They suggested some wonderful dinner choices. The breakfast was amazing!! The afternoon tea was left for us to enjoy at our leisure with wonderfully delicious fresh baked cookies! We can't wait to return!
Thanks so much for staying with us and taking the time to write such a spectacular review! It was such a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend and you both so easy going and appreciative that it makes us feel like our efforts are worthwhile. We're glad you enjoyed the Esselstyn Suite and the other areas of the inn as well as wonderful meals at some of Hudson's best restaurants. All the best wishes for you and the new baby. When you need a little break you know where to find us.

We stayed at the Croff House as a weekend getaway. We loved it. The innkeepers were so warm and hospitable. We felt so comfortable and relaxed. The inn was so beautiful and very clean, and the breakfasts were really amazing. Overall, an incredible weekend stay.
We were so happy to help you guys welcome in the New Year! Hopefully we will get to see you both back in 2010. Until then we hope your year continues to be spectacular.

Duncan and Russ treated my wife and I like family, provided a beautifully furnished room in a beautifully furnished house, and served us the best breakfast I've had in years. We'll stay there again, the next time we want a weekend away, and we recommend it to anyone looking for a homey retreat. Don
It was such a pleasure hosting you both and we thank you for writing such wonderful comments about your stay with us. We hope that you will come back for a visit again soon and hope you both have a wonderful holiday season.

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 special atmosphere - 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)...there so many superlatives. Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and only 5 minutes from the main street of Hudson, the house provided the perfect place to return to after a full day outdoors. Tea, cider, cakes/cookies greeted us. We were told to make ourselves at home...which we delightfully accepted by spending hours mesmerized in front of the fireplace, reading, relaxing. A salute to Russ and Duncan who were so gracious and made us feel as if we were the only guests there. We could not have asked for anything more perfect. Thank you and we look forward to our next stay with you.
Having you two stay with us was really a treat, and we thank you so much for being such wonderful, appreciative guests. Winterwalk weekend is a lot of fun, adding a special meaning to "a small town Christmas" and we're happy you two were able to experience Hudson to the fullest. When we say "make yourselves at home" during check-in we genuinely mean it and enjoyed seeing you unwinding by the fireplaces, one of our favorite things to do. We look forward to your return soon and wish you all the best this holiday season and in the New Year.

We loved every aspect of our recent stay at this 1875 restored home in Hudson, NY. Our hosts Ross and Duncan were attentive to every aspect of our stay and their gourmet breakfasts were simply to die for. They did a phenomenal job in restoring this B&B and added all the contemporary conveniences as well. It was as if we were weekend guests at a friend's home. The Inn is a short walk from the town's main street with antique stores, shops, galleries and restaurants galore. A true gem.
An innkeeper can only hope to have guests like you two. We were only more than happy to open our home/inn to you both and are so glad you enjoyed your time here. Thanks for feeling like friends, because that is how we felt having you stay with us and hope you will come back again soon. We wish you both all best wishes this holiday season and in tne New Year.

We happened upon this B&B by accident and think it is a gem. We have written to friends recommending they try it for a weekend away. All the rooms are appointed with care, style and comfort in mind. The owners were helpful and made us a terrific departing breakfast. This was first-rate.
We were so glad you found us! Being the "new kid on the block" we realize a lot of people haven't found us, but we're so glad you did. Hopefully you will be back soon, and we look forward to seeing you again!
4.6 on October 15, 2009
What a delightful B&B and way to spend a weekend getaway very convenient to NY. Great food and nice shops in Hudson NY. The B&B was charming, clean and terrifc hosts who are genuinely warm and friendly and aim to please - a very definite place to return to.
You picked a great time of year to visit and we're so glad you had a great time. You're so right about Hudson and all the town has to offer. Hopefully you folks will be back again soon to explore more of the town and the area. Thanks for such a wonderful review. We really appreciate it.
4.8 on August 26, 2009
The Croff House is B&B perfection. Russ and Duncan are so welcoming and lovely and have really paid attention to every detail. The house is gorgeous and our room struck that fine balance of being luxurious and elegant without feeling stuffy or overdone. Breakfast was an absolute treat - delicious and beautifully presented. We definitely have a new standard by which to judge every future B&B experience.
We loved having you stay with us, even though it was a short visit. Thanks for such terrific comments - glad to know that our efforts were noticed. Looking forward to seeing you again soon and wishing you both well until then!

THIS AUGUST MY WIFE AND I WENT TO HUDSON NY AND STAYED AT THE CROFF INN. UPON ARRIVAL WE WERE WARMLY WELCOMED BY RUSS, ONE OF THE OWNERS. HE ACTUALLY CARRIED OUR LUGGAGE TO OUR ROOM HIMSELF. THE PLACE WAS BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS. THE ROOMS WERE GREAT THE BEDS COMFORTABLE. THE NEXT MORNING, RUSS MADE BREAKFAST IT WAS WONDERFUL. BRBROWNE
Thank you for such great comments. We were so happy to have you with us and hope you can come back again soon. Until then, once again, many thanks.

Everything about the Croff House is first class, and lovely. The home, gardens, bed, sheets (so soft), spa shower (with jets), the incredible 3 course breakfast, the hosts Duncan and Ross, the town, the shops, it was just perfect. We walked everywhere in town and just loved coming back to the house. We will definitely return.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you all with us - you were terrific guests and a lot of fun. We hope you can make it back east in the near future and look forward to seeing you then.
5 on July 24, 2009
The Croff House is amazing. Its impeccably clean, well decorated and the breakfasts were outstanding. From the moment we arrived we were treated incredibly well by Russ and Duncan. We highly recommend it for a getaway.
Thanks for an "amazing" review and a fantastic weekend. Your whole group was a lot of fun and so easygoing. It made my job that much more a pleasure. We hope you guys come back to visit with us again soon.
5 on July 12, 2009
This is by far the best bed and breakfast we've ever stayed at. The house is beautifully restored with a great combination of the old elegance and new comfort. Russ is very friendly and helpful without being intrusive the way B&B hosts sometimes are. He had anticipated our every comfort and was just great. We're already planning a revisit for next month.
While "short" we are glad your visit with us was "sweet" and look forward to seeing you both again next month.
5 on July 11, 2009
Wonderful time. Duncan and Russ couldn't have been more accommodating. Lovely decor inside and outside. We rented the entire house for a long weekend wedding. Common areas great for morning and evening gatherings. Would definately stay again and refer to our friends! Great brownies!
You guys were truly a delight! We enjoyed seeing everyone have such a great time together and were very glad that The Croff House could provide a home base for all your before, during, and after wedding activities. Looking forward to seeing you all back again soon!

My husband and I picked this B&B randomly off a list distributed by a bride and groom in preparation for their wedding weeked. I wouldn't normally be in Hudson, New York (we live in the midwest) but now I would gladly travel back there any time for another opportunity to stay in this wonderful Inn. Newly and brilliantly renovated, Croff offers all the ammenities of a modern large hotel, complete with flat screen TV, wireless internet, ipod docking stations and a very considerately stocked private bathroom in every room. The hosts are appropriately solicitous without imposing in any way, and easily respond to unusual requests with grace and good humor. (We asked for beach towels to avoid staining their brand new white fluffy towels in the sand, and poof!... they appeared immediately.) All aspects of the room and house provided all the privacy I could ever ask for, while making me feel very much at home. But none of this wonderfulness compares to the miracle known as the Croff Breakfast. I would wax poetic about the four course masterpieces served at the civilized hour of 9:00, but I think all I will say is "candied bacon" and let that speak for itself. Phenominal in every way. Think no further and definitely go out of your way to stay at Croff.
We were so happy to be able to host such a great group on such a wonderful weekend. Thank you for such a glowing review! We hope to see you both "back east" soon.
5 on April 11, 2009
We were lucky to be the very first guests on opening night. Everything was perfect. The breakfast was a full gourmet event. Make your resevation today!
We're glad "opening night jitters" weren't an issue. As test subjects go you guys were the best! Thanks. We hope to see you both back soon!
