About the property

Sparkling, Light-Flooded Townhouse Houses 7 Comfortably

Make this gorgeous townhouse your home base for summer festivals, Berkshire- and Hudson Valley weddings, sports, shopping, and leaf peeping. 3 bed/3 full baths have cozy bright furnishings, sun-drenched nooks, and streams of sunlight. Shop, hike, antique, host brunch, or just read in front of the fireplace. We're a 5-min walk to the Amtrak and downtown Hudson (Warren Street), a 5-min drive to theaters and hiking trails, and 10-40 minutes to Coxsackie, Catskill, Athens, Woodstock, Saugerties, the Berkshires, and other amazing landscapes and communities.

This house has real historic value (built in 1740), but all spaces are newly renovated, freshly painted, delightfully decorated, and clean clean clean!!!

The front door broadcasts ease. We've replaced the key lock with a powerful digital deadbolt. Enter softly to original 18th century heart pine flooring and sweeping staircase. To the left: the fireplace room, with two generous chaise lounge chairs, lacquered tray table, vintage lambswool throw, and (soon) reclaimed wood bookshelves and desks. Through the doorway are the kitchen, first full bath, and dining and living rooms: each bright and clean. We've got a 50' TV and incredibly comfy sofa for couch potatoes, a rustic dining table surrounded by French chairs made by Ligne Roset, shiny new appliances (programmable coffeemaker, microwave, D/W, W/D, Riedel glasses).

This summer, we'll be building a firepit out back...and perhaps a hot tub, too. Stay tuned!

Upstairs, the master bedroom faces the quiet backyard. Sink into the super-firm handmade mattress, and either shut away the sunlight (curtains are made of blackout velvet), or awaken to morning light. There's a great walk-in closet leading to the master bath, with its curved rod, handheld rain shower, and bathtub. Lay out your things on the provided luggage rack.

The middle bedroom is very special, with a bird theme and a small patio all its own. The queen bed is brand new and very good for your back. Closets are great for keeping the wrinkles out of your dresses and suits, and we provide a luggage rack for your suitcases.

The hallway features local art (Earl is a fixture around here!). Down the hall is a room for kiddies and adults alike. Two single adults can comfortably sleep on these ultra-firm handmade XL twin mattresses...or put the kids here, in front of a rocking chair ideal for story time.

Please note that this is the owner's second home, and there are a few sparse owner's items that won't impede the renters' space and enjoyment of the home. Additionally, a cat stays on the premises about 3 weekends a year, so those extremely allergic might not want to book. We thoroughly wash all bedding & floors before & after every stay.

A third full bath sits in between the two bedrooms: clean and bright, with thirsty towels and amenities provided.

Hudson is marvelous. The antique shops draw designers from all over the eastern seaboard. Vintage shops and designers abound. The shopping and restaurants rival anything I've seen in Manhattan or Brooklyn: and I am a former food and travel critic for New York Magazine, so I know what I'm talking about! The people are similarly friendly and great: you really feel like part of this town after just a day.

The Amtrak station is four blocks away: straight shot north from Penn Station: two hours one way, and a beautiful ride. I'll provide a guide to restaurants and shops, and get you quickly acclimated to the area.

Why Jean Tang chose Hudson Valley

It's close to downtown, but away from Warren Street's summertime noise and bustle.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful, and just what we needed for a weekend getaway with friends! The house had everything necessary to relax and make meals, and was very central to the downtown area- we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go! Our only issue was the heat, and after asking Jean about it, she had AC units installed within the hour. Would definitely recommend.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Attended a wedding with my family and I chose this place because it had 3 full bathrooms!!!! We cooked breakfast in and enjoyed the area restaurants for lunch - all within walking distance. The owner is great to work with and allowed us to check in early with my 88 year old mom which allowed her to take her time getting ready for rehearsal dinner. Owner also seems to want to improve her place by continuing to update with. Ew pull out couches - which will be a real asset because my son was able to stay downstairs on couch and have his own bathroom to get ready. It really was a Great place to stay!!!!

Wonderful Home for a Larger Group

  • 4 of 5

We spent two nights in Hudson for a family wedding. We were a family of 5 adults and 3 children, including two infants The three bedrooms and three baths made our stay very comfortable. In addition, the living room and den provided amble space to hang out. There were items belonging to the owners in various places but the kitchen was well stocked with dishes and condiments. There was a washer and dryer for longer stays. The owner was extremely helpful when we had questions and responded immediately.

Our experience wasn't what we had expected.

  • 2 of 5

Inefficient bedding in all rooms since there were no top bed sheet in the twin beds only one knit blanket to cover. The same with the second bedroom, there was no top sheet only a skinny duvet. For the amount of money we're paying for the night, the beds should be comfortable and have the standard cover for comfort and hygiene. Also, there was no iron or ironing board.

Owner's Response: Hi Mariana. It's true that we have hired a thorough and wonderful new cleaner and got our signals crossed with number of sheets to use in warm weather. But there is a whole linen closet filled with extra sheets and blankets. If you were cold, I was just a simple text message away. I even texted you to check in and didn't hear anything about this issue--only to receive a two star review!!

This area is like a sophisticated, cultural Hamptons. You've got intelligent ruralism: a great farmer's market, eco-consciousness, smart design sensibilities. You've got a real sense of history: the area was settled in the mid-18th century. You've got nature: hiking, cycling, and boating as far as the eye can see (and we can recommend great spots for all). And then there's the urban splendor of Warren Street: world-class antiquing, vintage stores, new designers, and food so amazing that I'd pick Hudson over NYC in any restaurant showdown. The people are INCREDIBLY sweet: educated, generous, thoughtful. It's built to be an ideal weekend getaway for New Yorkers, Bostonians, New Englanders, and those from further afield!
