The Five Best Historic and Rustic Lodges in Hudson Valley


Last Updated: 02/10/2020 4:27 pm

There’s plenty of lodging in Greene County, but none as storied as the 137-year-old Catskills vintage Glen Falls House in Round Top. The current owners took over in 2017, restoring the facilities with a modern touch while retaining its traditional, 19th-century farmhouse charm. The nearly 50 acres of woods are laced with hiking trails and landmark waterfalls, a tavern, and a restaurant are perfect for an adventure.

Make your way to the town of Hunter and you’ll find Scribner’s Catskill Lodge at the foot of Hunter Mountain. The resort’s 38 rooms, full-service restaurant, pool, and common spaces were recently redesigned with dark maple floors, vintage rugs, fireplaces, and custom furniture. Prospect, the on-site restaurant, serves up cuisine with locally sourced products and vegetables.

Further south in Ulster County, Saint Hubert’s Lodge is a quaint, romantic bed and breakfast in Marlboro. More than just a bed and a bite of breakfast, the lodge offers 165 acres to explore. The grounds offer plenty of seclusion, and even a private apple orchard on-site for all guests to enjoy.

The Central House has been a staple of Germantown for over a century. Since 1876, the space has gone from brothel to speakeasy to coach house to restaurant. And in 2011, it reopened as a lodging destination. The historic hotel offers six bedrooms, each with private bath, internet access, and flat-screen TV. Outside the rooms, guests enjoy the building’s veranda and a fireplace in the second-floor common room.

Troutbeck is a 36-room country house estate in Amenia with no shortage of places to explore. Choose from one of the guest rooms in the central Manor House, the Century Lodge, the Century House Annex, or the Garden House. At the epicenter of this idyllic property, the Manor House is home to an art gallery, bar, dining room, ballroom, library, and living room. The grounds boast three trout fishing holes, a pool and grill, a movement studio, garden, stone walls and bridges, and acres of nature to get lost in.

  • Garrison's Historic Bird & Bottle Inn Now Open for Dining

    Established in 1761, Dutch Colonial classic the Bird & Bottle Inn was a key waypoint for Hudson Highlands travelers before, during, and after the revolution. In the 1940s, it rose to prominence as a culinary destination frequented by celebrities, foodies, and starlets. After a painstaking renovation by local entrepreneurs and developers Marjorie Tarter and Brendan MacAlpine, the Bird has reopened to the public for dinner and weekend brunch. The hotel will open at a later date, with private events and weddings also to resume.
