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.

Eighteen Hours of Luxury

4.0 on August 30, 2018

First, let me say my expectations were high. They were met or exceeded. Mount Merino Manor is at the high end of our travel and entertainment budget. I chose it for a special occasion, and we were very happy with it. Marcy was very attentive, checking us in and showing us around. The bath and shower were a real indulgence, although a bit of care is needed adjusting the hot water. We had a nice chat with Rita at breakfast, and got some good tips on worthwhile sightseeing and attractions in the area. The grounds are beautifully kept up.

Great find in Hudson

Mt. Merino is the "whole package" great old mansion, great rooms, great service, and great breakfast. A real find for anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in Hudson, NY.

Charming and Friendly!

We had such a wonderful time! We enjoyed the old time ambience of the wrap around porch, until the nostalgic music transports you into another time as you enter the beautifully appointed house. Rita and her staff are so friendly, we felt right at home, having delicious breakfasts each day. We had a birds eye view of the Catskill Mountains and enjoyed visiting the Hudson River Valley!

Wonderful stay

Our one night stay here was fantastic. Our room was immaculate and spacious, service was lovely, and the breakfast FAR exceeded expectations for a bed and breakfast. We were treated with scallion and goat cheese muffins, fresh fruit, and an apple crepe - all delicious. We would return here in a heartbeat for a refreshing weekend getaway from the city.

We've stayed in Diamond Street Suit this summer and plan to come back. The room was lovely and bathroom was sparkly clean.The house is beautifully decorated, and staff was extremely nice. Elegant dining room and warm breakfast, home baked cookies and coffee to grab anytime in the little guest kitchen. Vast property and breathtaking mountain view. Everything was just perfect. We will definitely recommend this place. Thanks.

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.
