Batterby House
Ranked #10 of 17 Hudson B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Beautiful house, great breakfast, extremely comfortable bed ... what more could you ask from a Bed and Breakfast? Our host, Paul, was an absolute delight - friendly, courteous, accommodating, interesting, and very knowledgeable about -- it seems -- all things! The Country Squire is centrally located and is an easy walk to everything in town. If you are visiting Hudson (and why wouldn't you? It's a great place to visit!), stay at The Country Squire. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Paul made us feel like we were home from the moment he greeted us at the front door on that snowy Saturday afternoon.

Great place, wonderful services, immaculate, great staff. Spacious rooms, nice finishes, heat in BR and in bath, both controllable. Ample breakfast w/various options, flexible serving times.
A short 3 block walk to the main part of why folks visit Hudson. On site parking. Would happily recommend and, visit again!

Hudson is one of my favorite little cities for walking, shopping, dining. It's a perfect escape from the overly suburban strip-mall infested world I live in that is not my first choice but best supports my fulltime job situation. If you want to truly enjoy Hudson, I recommend that you stay overnight in a place like this!

The Country Squire is not only beautiful but has some practical aspects that are very appealing. I know that practical aspects are important to many Trip Advisor viewers. The decor and details are lovely everywhere you turn. I wished we had more time to truly enjoy the decor in the house (but we were on a tight time constraint). In the short time we had to indulge, we loved the stained glass windows and unique wood floor patterns.

The practical aspects...HUGE, safe and ample off street parking lot, good location, amazingly comfortable beds, roomy bathrooms/great shower. We stayed in a twin room because we were two adults traveling and did not want to share a bed. These beds were the most comfortable twin style beds we have ever slept in. The bathroom was enormous, upscale soaps/shampoos/shower gel supplied and towels were soft and plentiful.

As previous reviewers mentioned, Paul is a gracious host and serves a beautiful and delicious breakfast. He did accommodate a couple of diet considerations of my traveling companion and we were very grateful for that. On the day we were there, we had a sumptuous quiche, fresh fruit, several assorted homemade breads (lemon, banana and more). There was juice, cereal and so much more.

This B & B is truly a gem! It is a comfortable Victorian home, classically decorated and centrally located to downtown Hudson. Paul is a gracious host, who is well versed in the history of the Hudson Valley. I would highly recoommend it to my friends and family.

This is a very easy place to relax in. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, well appointed. Breakfast is ample and leisurely. Host Paul is highly knowledgable about things to do in and around Hudson, and a great conversationalist to boot. A little bonus: the showers are fantastic.

Room Tip: The first floor room is beneath the stairs, so mornings can be difficult if you like to sleep in.

The Country Squire B & B is a centrally located warm and inviting home with a charming splendid balanced harmonized period look. It is considerably enhanced with Victorian furniture and creative Victorian decoration. Antique artifacts are carefully and creatively blended in the overall setting to dispel any notion of boring interior design. Breakfast is scrumptiously exquisite and fit for the most discriminating taste. The service is personal and fully cordial and welcoming.
I highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: the king size bed mattress was five star hotel quality.
