Blue Skies is named for its gracious ambience and sky-colored ceilings throughout. The apartment, which is on the second floor, is set up to comfortably accommodate six (but in a pinch it can sleep seven adults, or seven adults and a child). Blue Skies, which has its own thermostat and air conditioning, is comprised of seven rooms: a spacious living room (with a larger-than-average daybed); an anteroom off the living room (with French doors and another, smaller-than-average daybed suitable for a child); a dining room with table that can be expanded from six to fit eight or 10; full kitchen (with fridge, oven, microwave, toaster and coffee maker, but no dishwasher); three comfortable bedrooms (two with queen-size beds, one with full); and a bathroom with clawfoot tub and an abundance of fluffy white towels and toiletries (including but not limited to shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, Q-tips, band-aids and body lotion). Blue Skies is very clean and very comfortable, and exudes the welcoming warmth of an art-filled salon.
This house was built shortly after the Civil War, and the public spaces — living room, dining room and kitchen — are spacious. The cozy bedrooms (one with a queen-size bed, two with full) are generously appointed with pillows, soft linens, fluffy comforters and cozy rugs, and all the beds are super comfortable.
Union Street, and my block in particular, has the lovely settled energy of an older neighborhood. It's quiet and peaceful here, yet only a minute's walk from the middle of Warren Street, Hudson's happening main drag with its varied restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, boutiques, and all manner of fashions - antique and au courant - for home and humans.
Hudson is a very small city, and you can explore all of it easily on foot. Warren Street, Hudson's main artery, is a minute's leisurely stroll from the house, and there is street parking all around. Hudson is about 120 miles from New York City, a two-hour train ride from Penn Station, and 48 miles from Albany International Airport (ALB). Although you can walk anywhere in town from the house, the closest supermarkets, movie theaters and fast food are located in strip malls 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 miles away (thus preserving Hudson's remarkable architectural continuity). There are taxis, a car rental agency, and two places to rent bicycles (one of which also rents skis and kayaks) in town.
The Catskills, Frederick Church's Olana and river beaches — to name just three of the Hudson Valley's memorable offerings — are all a 10- or 15-minute drive, and more easily accessed by car.
I am reachable by e-mail or phone from booking through your stay — and usually available in person while you're here. I do my best before you arrive to fulfill any specific requests, then respect the privacy of your apartment (unless called upon) after greeting you with the key when you get here.
GUESTS ARE WELCOME FOR A ONE-NIGHT STAY MONDAY-THURSDAY, AND SOMETIMES ON WEEKENDS, DEPENDING ON THE SEASON AND AVAILABILITY. JUNE THROUGH OCTOBER, PREFERENCE WILL BE GIVEN TO RESERVATIONS OF TWO NIGHTS OR MORE ON WEEKENDS. PLEASE INQUIRE.

Blue Skies is smoke-free, and I'm sorry to say I cannot accept pets. For reservations of two weeks or longer, unless otherwise arranged, linens will be changed and the apartment cleaned every week (for which the standard cleaning fee is added on a weekly basis).
