A Place in the Country

The choice of where to stay in the Hudson Valley can be a challenging one. With spring and summer in full bloom, why not take the eclectic route and enjoy the Great Outdoors? Choose luxurious accommodations nestled within beautiful acreage or close to a small, hip town. If your budget is tight, there are more economic lodgings on hand as well.

Buttermilk Falls is a modern bed and breakfast is situated on 75 acres. Guests have the option to stay in one of ten curated rooms in the circa-1764 main house with river or garden views, or one of eight unique private cottages. The livestock barn at its Millstone Farm houses angora goats, miniature donkeys, and llamas, while a herd of rescued alpacas and a family of miniature donkeys also reside on the premises. The farm is the source behind produce found at the on-site restaurant, Henry’s at the Farm.

For a more traditional B&B, try Bricktown Inn, a brick Victorian in Haverstraw. Although the historic architectural beauty has been preserved—mahogany staircase, 10-and-1/2-foot ceilings, and plaster moldings—modern amenities are included as well. The parlor is a great place to strike up a conversation with some of the other travelers, while the library has antique classic books for more personalized intellectual entertainment. Relax on the porch or in your personalized room, which showcases family heirlooms and antique tchotchkes.

Garrison’s Terrace Grill

Golf fans will love the Garrison’s 18-hole course situated about 600 feet above the Hudson River with scenic views of the Hudson Highlands terrain as its background. After an afternoon on the course, relax in a luxurious room or wine and dine at the Valley, a delectable on-site restaurant with a daily changing menu. For a more casual, grab ’n’ go dining option, there is the Terrace Grill, which offers burgers, salads, and more.

For a more affordable stay, try America’s Best Value Inn in New Paltz. Less expensive than the rustic majesty of the Mohonk Mountain House or some of the other more well-known accommodations and B&Bs in the New Paltz area, this hotel is a great base for the budget-friendly traveler. If you like the proximity to New York City but would prefer a slightly fancier inn, we’d suggest West Gate Inn, which is located in Nyack. Roughly 30 miles from the Big Apple, this hotel offers dancing and entertainment on Saturday nights. Guests can choose from a room with a kings-sized bed or a standard room with two doubles.
