Our room and the entire "boarding house" was a delight. The rooms was beautifully appointed with a gas fireplace- beautiful bathroom and a mini-bar with local treats and library that could have kept us occupied for days! Linens were crisp and the mattress was heavenly. A coffee bar in the hallway was such a nice treat as we woke up...

We spent a lovely weekend at the boarding house. We stayed in the annex, two doors down from the main hotel. Our room was small but very comfortable with a great bed and gorgeous bathroom. On the main floor there is a huge and comfortable living room and kitchen, so there is plenty of space to lounge. There is also...

Along with our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, my husband and I stayed in the Abigail Suite. The decor is rustic Restoration Hardware; the room is well-designed with good bedside and desk lighting, a swiveling television,Tivoli Audio radio, free Wi-Fi, and a record player with an eclectic record collection. Unfortunately, the king-sized bed was not comfortable; both my husband and I...

We stayed in the Pennington Suite. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and you could see that a lot of thought and care had gone into the decor of the rooms. The beds were super comfy and I felt that everything had been well thought out. The bar downstairs was superb also and the staff were super friendly. A lovely break...

What a wonderful place! Everything is so beautifully and cleverly renovated, each room being totally different. We were in Annex 1. The only thing lacking was our bathroom. The shower was so tiny and required much skill to bath in. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner in the restaurant.

We're charmed that you enjoyed your stay! It's true, the Annex 1 has a small, standard stand-up shower in its bathroom. Many of our rooms are equipped with claw-foot tubs but please do refer to the descriptions of each of the unique and individual rooms on our website under 'Boarding'!

The beds were like sleeping on a cloud, the rooms were super clean--light and bright and decorated well for the look and feel of the historic space. great common area and service. Beautiful bathrooms and the restaurant next store is a fun, romantic setting. Would love to stay here again.

The owner/proprietors took great care in selecting the beds we have in our rooms and it makes us smile to hear you were able to sleep well! Seemingly (based on common area comment) you stayed in the Hudson Merchant House, our sister property.

This is a long overdue review for my stay in late June, when I was in Hudson for a friend’s wedding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wm Farmer and Sons is an intimate, eleven room hotel located in the heart of historical Hudson. We offer devilishly attractive rooms at unpretentious prices. Known for our eclectic charm and comfort, our 1830’s Inn now features a restaurant, barroom and coffee shop. Authentic farm-to-table cuisine and craft cocktails served up daily. Each room has a view of the Catskill Mountains or Hudson River. Fresh morning fruit and premium coffee are complimentary. We admittedly make it hard to rouse your self in the morning – luxury beds, 500 thread count sheets, and big fluffy pillows conspire against you, while in-room flat screen TVs and free WiFi scratch your digital itch. When you do rise, we’re just steps from Hudson’s local galleries, hip boutiques, and growing music scene. ... more   less
