About Brigitte Gfeller

I love to create, especially beautiful, comfortable living spaces. My life has been enriched by many cultures, moving to different countries, while raising three amazing kids mostly by myself.

My motto is: you can always reinvent yourself while staying true to your core....I have done it many times, and hope this is what my kids learned most from me aside from being kind, honest, compassionate, loving and seeking always the best in everyone and everything.

Brigitte Gfeller purchased this apartment in 2014

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I shared a lovely, long weekend in this rental. It was beautifully designed and decorated, convenient to town and had all the amenities one could ask for. We could walk to all shopping and dining or enjoy a comfortable evening in the apartment cooking on our own from the well equipped kitchen. We could not have asked for a better stay or more comfortable beds. We absolutely would stay again!

Wonderful weekend in Hudson NY

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I attended a wedding in Hudson, NY this past weekend. The venue was absolutely beautiful and the weather was terrific.

But I must say that we enjoyed staying at the Rivertown Guest House as much as we did the other great events of the weekend. I cannot say enough about how fastidious the owner is and how spectacular her property is. It is so charming, clean, and is in a fantastic location. Please do your homework carefully when visiting Hudson because there are a few streets that you absolutely want to stay on and one of them is where this apartment is located. When you view the photos, you will notice the historic charm of each room has been blended with classic updates. You will LOVE your stay at the Rivertown Guest House. And you will love interacting with the owner. I know we did!

Peaceful, orderly, light, clean, well stocked, two blocks to town

  • 5 of 5

Brigitte has put together a lovely, comfy getaway home, complete with a stack of old New Yorkers. She provided us with great breakfast fixings and recommendations for great local restaurants. Wonderful beds (although one bedroom features bunk beds) and good reading lamps. If it were possible, we would give her a sixth star.
