“Splendid getaway!”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Loved our weekend getaway here! Superb breakfast and Mary always left delicious little treats, like cookies and cake!!!, to snack on throughout the day. I really enjoyed the outdoor shower and the pool. Mary recommended some nice hikes around the area, as well as good restaurants. My only tip would be to bring some allergy medication with you because there are some animals in the house:)

What a great B&B the owner and her family were just amazing, our room
Was perfect and the breakfast 5 stars!
This B&B in the perfect location just outside the center of Hudson far enough to feel you are upstate and they have a great pool, can't wait to go back!

My husband and I spend a spectacular weekend with Mary and her family. The bed and breakfast was refreshing, immaculate and had all the amenities we could have wanted. Being on a working farm with organic vegetables and animals made it all the more interesting. Our room was spacious and had a large bathroom with a wonderful old fashioned tub. The towels and linens were lush and elegant. I appreciated the effort to use natural products. The common areas were warm and inviting and homemade snacks and foods, such as fresh fruit from the farm, always available. What made our stay even more memorable was that Mary and her staff went out of their way to prepare food items that we could enjoy on our plant based, whole foods diet. We were in Hudson for a Farms to Forks weekend. Mary even used my recipe for a dessert and had it waiting for us after we returned from our event. They made fresh salsa and even prepared a dinner right from the farm ingredients that they grew right outside the door. We even enjoyed tomatoes from their farm at home the following week. We certainly would stay at this bed and breakfast again as they were the perfect hosts with a refreshing inn in a most scenic setting. It was a pleasure to talk with Mary's son, Ted, whose conversations made our stay even more memorable. I highly recommend a stay at this bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed good. Only some have a private bath.

I'll echo the word eco-friendly from a previous review. It seems that everything we ate, and it was all very good, was grown on the property. They have have cows, chickens and pigs out in the back and two small dogs in the house. You can just ignore the animals and hang out by the pool. In talking with Mary, one of the proprieters, no food went to waste. What humans wouldn't eat, the animals would. They seem to have a great sense of recycling. The house is well situated to be right near the Taconic Parkway exit and about a ten minute drive to Hudson, where you can partake of funky galleries, unique restaurants and nightime activities. Though it was raining Saturday morning, it was very comfortable to just hang out and talk to the other guests. We highly recommend.

Thanks to Mary & Bill Koch, I just came back from a fabulous weekend, spent at their creatively named B&B, Thyme in the Country....what a beautiful place, where everything tastes & smells so good!..Hanging out with their cows/pigs/chickens/dogs & cat, while laying poolside by their salt-water pool, is a recipe for total relaxation...if you need to get the heck away from the everyday chaos/anarchy of NY, then this is the place to come!..Thanks, Mary & Bill for being so warm & personable!

My husband and I aren’t usually B&B fans (often too frilly for us), but in planning a last-minute, one-night getaway we chose Thyme in the Country and were happy we did. Hosts Mary and Bill have a roomy house on 5 acres of pastureland where they raise a couple of Dutch Belt milk cows, a bunch of chickens, and grow their own vegetables and herbs. Mary is happy to share info, maps, and recommendations on things to do and places to eat in the area. She’s also a fabulous cook: She whipped up a nice apple pie the night we were there and for breakfast the next morning, a delicious spinach casserole served with baked sweet potatoes, homemade apple muffins, fresh-squeezed juice, and coffee.

We stayed in the newly renovated Rose Room: spacious, ultra-comfortable bed and bedding, a couple of nice armchairs, a fireplace, a radio, books, and three windows with views of the meadows. (When Mary and Bill asked what we thought of the new room, we did share our one negative – that the over-the-bed lighting was a little harsh and could maybe benefit from a dimmer switch.) The private bath was also roomy, outfitted with natural products and big, fluffy towels. Common areas were great for lounging – big couches, fireplace, TV, library.

It wasn’t warm enough for the pool when we were there, but after a long drive, we had fun walking through Bill and Mary’s pastureland, saying hi to the cows, and gathering a couple of dozen eggs from the chicken coop. At checkout, they noticed that our rental car was a hybrid, and were kind enough o reward us with a 10% discount.

Another poster mentioned that the B&B was hard to find (we learned there are restrictions on signage). My tip: Once you’re on Fire and Game Road, just look for the address “671” on the mailbox. Even at night, we had no problem.

Room Tip: We liked the Rose Room (see review for details).

Our weekend getaway and stay was like coming home! Mary, Bill and their team made us feel so welcome, and they were incredibly thoughtful and generous--from making special vegan and gluten free meals, to leaving us little sweets treats, to building us a warm and beautiful fire to providing natural products in the restroom. We simply can't say how much we enjoyed our peaceful and nature-filled stay at Thyme in the Country. Thank you Mary & Bill! You and your B&B are simply beautiful!
