About Jack and Mary Ellen

The owners are from the Hudson Valley and live full time on the property in a separate home they built in 2000.

Jack and Mary Ellen purchased this house in 2008

Why Jack and Mary Ellen chose Hudson Valley

We love the Hudson Valley and wanted to share our view of the river and mountains with our family and friends and now guests. The property is contiguous to our original property and when the opportunity presented itself we made the purchase and completely renovated our 'guest house'.

What makes this house unique

The views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains are breathtaking and the glorious sunsets never cease to amaze. The privacy and tranquillity along with the astonishing wildlife makes this property a true treasure.

Second Stay Even Better!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed our second stay at this wonderful home! Again, everything we could ever need or want for is right there. The fall foliage, the Hudson River and Catskill Mountain views changed from sunrise to sunset and couldn't have been more beautiful. Mary Ellen and Jack are consummate hosts. They truly care, and enjoy, that WE enjoyed the home they generously share. I cannot say enough about this immaculate, well designed, comfortably furnished, fully stocked, relaxing oasis. Only minutes from all Hudson has to offer with great restaurants, shopping and history...this amazing vacation rental has it all...the views and privacy are the icing on the cake. The property/landscape alone is so well cared for and a treat all its own - we never wanted to leave. You just can't get all of that in any local B and B or hotel. Location, location, location!! We hope to return again and again to our "home" on the Hudson. Maybe, one day, our dream home will be available for us to buy...hint, hint...if only!!

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the house and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The view of the river is amazing and the house is clean, comfortable and beautifully maintained. We enjoyed cooking- the kitchen is very well stocked- and sitting in front of the fireplace. The location is quiet and private, but only ten minutes from town. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely return!

Beautiful setting, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a weekend stay at the Hudson River House and left wishing we could have stayed for a whole week. It's a perfect setting for two couples - a family or friends reunion, or just a getaway location. Jack and Mary Ellen were great hosts, and the house is exceedingly well appointed. If we have the opportunity, we will certainly rent this house again.

Magical spot

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. Easy, comfortable, stunning spot and convenient to so much in the Hudson Valley. The owners were attentive and respectful and the spot is magical. We enjoyed a sunset that was extraordinary. It was just the 2 of us but the upstairs looked lovely and offers privacy for another couple as well. It was the best nights sleep we have had in ages. Love their mattress. A beautifully appointed lacked nothing. We can't wait to return.

Beautiful home with beautiful Hudson River views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home with another couple for a wonderful fall weekend. The house is beautifully renovated and perfect for two couples as it has two master suites. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting around the fireplace and enjoying a little down time each night. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. It was the height of fall foliage so we had beautiful views from absolutely every window. The house is very close to the town of Hudson so it was just a short drive to dinner each night. Jack and Ellen really thought of everything.
