The owner, Mary is as welcoming as can be. She was accommodating to our food allergies as well as being vegetarian.
The positives: You really have full access to the house. There are 3 sitting areas. One has a wood burning stove and the other a fire place. She has books, games and even a piano to use. Breakfast is served between 8:30 and 9:30 but if you want to eat later it doesn’t seem to be a problem. The room (rose room) was a very generous size and the bed was comfortable. Also, there is tea and coffee available at all times as well as little cookies which is a very nice touch. All the food is farm fresh. The eggs are from Mary’s chickens and so is the milk. If you can’t drink whole milk, just tell her ahead of time!
Disclaimer: I feel bad saying anything negative because Mary was so nice however I feel it’s fair to point out certain things.
The negatives: Check out time is at 11am. We thought if we had our room cleaned out we could hang out downstairs and read but we were asked to leave. (In a nice way but still a negative in our eyes) We were looking forward to just reading in a quite comfortable place. Also, this is not a bed and breakfast that affords much privacy once in your room. The doors are not butt with the floor and you can hear everyone upstairs. People were respectful but you couldn’t help but hear them which means they could hear us too. Finally, the water pressure was not so great in the shower.
Neutral: The light comes in the window treatments in the morning. For some this is great, for others not so great.
Warning: There are two entrances with the same number. The bed and breakfast has a relatively open area when you drive in with the house on the left. If you see a garage in front of you, this is not the right entrance!
We found a lovely place in Hudson to hang out in called Cafe le Perche on Warren Street. We read and had delicious food too and luckily there was a fireplace there as well. If you go this place, read about it and make sure you ask to see the incredible oven. They have an interesting story!
