Mount Merino Manor

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


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

We had a lovely stay to celebrate our anniversary. Mount Merino boasts beautifully appointed rooms with rich antique furniture, lovely spa bathrooms and a world class view of the Hudson and surrounding environs. On site is the charming and lovely innkeeper, Rita ! The breakfasts were delicious, and staff chef, Alex as well as Val were wonderfully helpful in accessing the beautiful areas in and around Hudson, so rich in culture. Really enjoyed our visits to town, antique shops , restaurants, and Olana Historic site, as well as The Fields at Omi .Thank you so much for an outstanding stay. We could not recommend this lovely B&B more highly:) Rose and Al

Wonderful spot for an anniversary weekend

We took a weekend away from the city and stayed at Mount Merino Manor for our anniversary. Rita called us while we were on our way up to make sure we were finding our way up ok, she provided excellent recommendations for dinner, nightlife, taxis, daytime activities, and just generally good conversation over breakfast (which by the way was fantastic). The house is beautiful as are the grounds. Highly recommend staying here.

Awesome Place!

This place is great! Great operator, great food, tastefully decorated rooms. And they are the only BnB in Hudson that takes one night reservations - everywhere else requires 2 nights.

My fiancée and I adored our stay at this cozy B&B last weekend. After thoroughly researching all of Hudson's accommodations, I thought Mount Merino would be perfect – and it was. They accommodated our late check-in and we enjoyed a warm and delicious breakfast the next morning. The property is vast and the house is amazing. From the gorgeous dining room to our vintage soaking tub and luxurious shower, we couldn't have asked for more. We stayed in the Deer Run room which featured candles, a super cozy bed, decorative fireplace, gorgeous bathroom, and plenty of space for our belongings. We slept very well. Breakfast happens in the dining room every morning, which is elegantly set and prepared. The kitchen does a divine job with pancakes, eggs, juices and so much more. We also enjoyed having access to tea and coffee in the little kitchen on our floor at any time. That was a nice touch. The staff is also very kind and willing to help with recommendations for dining, activities and whatever else is on your mind. Rita was so lovely, giving us a trail map so that we could hike up to Olana. It turned out the be a beautiful few hours spent. You can also find a great range of books, movies and board games in the common room if you just feel like kicking it indoors. We got a game of Scrabble in before reluctantly leaving this magical place. We will definitely be returning to Mount Merino!

Perfect getaway

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary, the Blue Mountain View room is absolutely perfect with a heavenly bed, large bathroom and mountain views. The staff is friendly and helpful and the breakfast is to die for. We will definitely be back for another stay next year!

About the innkeepers

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