A relaxing and cozy stay

5 on June 15, 2016

We had a great time at Thyme in the Country. It was such a relaxing getaway. Breakfast was AMAZING every morning and Mary was so accommodating to our special dietary needs. Everything they serve is fresh, delicious, and made from scratch. The house was cozy and clean. Bedding was very comfortable and our room was well appointed. We stayed in October and spending the chilly nights by the fire was perfect. Mary was extremely friendly, hospitable, and fun to converse with in the morning over breakfast. She gave us tons of suggestions for places to visit in the area and things to do, and gave directions and maps. If you appreciate organic food and environmentally conscious special touches then Thyme in the Country is for you because Mary excels in these categories. On the last day my husband was feeling under the weather and she even called us the next day to check in and see how he was feeling. So thoughtful!! She was like an extended family member we had visited for the weekend, made us feel like we were home. Don't hesitate to stay here, Thyme in the Country will exceed your expectations.

World-class B&B and Host! Highly Recommend.

Mary was an extremely thoughtful and kind host. We arrived to warm chocolate chip cookies, fresh ginger tea, and a toasty fire in the living room. Immediately, Mary made us feel right at home. The rooms were clean, cozy, and nicely decorated. There was a diverse collection of books throughout the house, which we really enjoyed. Robes, fresh towels, and shampoos were conveniently provided in our room. We woke up to the smells of an amazing gourmet breakfast. Mary used her property's farm fresh eggs, milk, and vegetables to create a delicious stuffed omelette, jalapeno cornbread, and baked apples. So tasty, organic, and fresh!! Overall, we had a fantastic stay, and just wish we could stayed and relaxed for a bit longer. It would be a long shot to find a more detail-oriented, passionate, and kind host as Mary. Highly recommend the trip!

If you are looking for coziness...

You must go to this charming small cottage! My family and I went there for a weekend for the second time and it was just as great as the first time. The place is neat and clean, the food is delicious and the host, Mary, has a gift for making guests feel home. I can just highly recommend this wonderful place for people looking for a peaceful weekend in the country. Vanessa.

Amazing weekend getaway!

We had a lovely weekend at this bed and breakfast- Mary and Bill could not have been more lovely and make you feel at home in their bed and breakfast. This was out first time in Hudson and fell in love with the town and place we stayed. Bill introduced us to the farm animals- cows, pig, chickens- even let us pet the cow- had an amazing experience! The home is filled with lovely antiques and is very warm and inviting. Our room had great views of the leaves and farm! We cannot wait to return!

Elixir for the Weathered Soul

My girlfriend and I spent a full weekend at Thyme in the Country B&B, and were charmed from the moment we got to the house late Saturday afternoon. The rustic scenery, the land and farm animals, and the way the house and outside shed were decorated gracefully with antique furniture, tools and wall hangings brought us to a completely different place and time. The owners are extremely hospitable, and we felt right at home as soon as we entered the house. We were pleasantly surprised by the evening snack tray and honey-ginger tea that filled and warmed our bellies from the cold weather, as we really expected nothing more than a breakfast, typical of most B&B places. Without a doubt, I could easily tell that this is not just a business to Mary and Bill, but more of a passion that is integrated into their daily life. The food was amazing, ingredients obtained from local markets and farms, and the eggs, sausage and bacon came right from their backyard. The house is cleaned with all-natural solutions, as the owners are very much attuned to the importance of environmental responsibility and sustainability. We will definitely come back to Thyme in the Country on future getaways, and will wholeheartedly recommend this B&B to our friends and family.

"Thyme in the Country," is time well spent!

Mary and Bill are wonderful, gracious hosts and welcome visitors to their home as if they are family. The house is pleasant and peaceful, filled in every corner with interesting antiques and artistic touches. The refreshing quiet of their corner of the country is only broken by the occasional moo of their charming cows and the songbirds visiting their fruit trees. The fresh, delicious food Mary and her family prepares is all gathered from the bounty of her garden, the fruit trees and the fresh milk of their cows and eggs from the chickens. Even the soap has been carefully handmade. Every aspect of a visit to Thyme in the Country is a delight, made even more special by the personal attention of Mary and Bill. You will leave not only refreshed and renewed but with the warmth of a new friendship.

Great stay
