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.

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!

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!

My review is somewhat mixed. Breakfast was very thoughtful and delicious, and the grounds surrounding the property are spacious. Views to the river valley are impressive. The porch is in bad disrepair and needs woodwork, paint and a new flag. We did not receive shampoo, conditioner and body wash daily.

Everything was great about our stay. The manor is quiet and tucked away, perched atop a hill just minutes from the center of Hudson. The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was excellent, and the room was very nice. We will absolutely be back for another weekend!

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

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

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

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

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.
