Mount Merino Manor Story

This luxury Bed & Breakfast sits on a lush hilltop surrounded by 100 private acres with views of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson River. Olana State Historic Site and the SkyWalk over the Hudson are just steps from the front door and offer some of the best views in the Hudson Valley. Mount Merino Manor is truly a country escape just minutes to the center of Hudson, best know for shopping, dining, art galleries, antiques and music venues.

Mount Merino Manor is for anyone who has ever thought, “I’m working too hard or I want a break from the everyday.” It’s for anyone who wants to breathe new air and have a simple connection with nature, enjoy a delicious meal and maybe even a little balance. Part of the inspiration for this B&B was the simple fact that it would be amazing to share a home of this significance and the peaceful land that surrounds it with those looking for a unique experience.

It’s an experience of relaxed luxury and gracious hospitality with a delicious Breakfast each morning. Seven spacious guest rooms and suites, many with mountain views, working gas fireplaces, spa-jetted showers, whirlpool tubs, fine linens and aromatherapy bath amenities offer a way to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect.

In every season, this unique property inspires guests to enjoy the things you can’t schedule. A deer family grazing on the front lawn, a sunset that inspired the Hudson River artists, sipping a glass of wine on the front porch to the tune of a cricket’s song or taking in a harvest moon on clear night. We invite you savor the poetry in moments that follow…even a little laughter.

We invite you to experience Mount Merino Manor.

In the Beginning

As we pulled up the winding drive, it was love at first site, a stately Victorian – clean lines, good bones, lots of light, seven fireplaces, crazy views of the mountains, the river, the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, what’s not to love?

Strolling through her light-filled rooms, we realized this gracious home wanted to be an Inn. The smell of good strong coffee in the morning, an afternoon breeze that preys on your weakness to lie in the grass and do nothing, savoring the last moments of sunlight on a sweet summer day and sharing it all with those who amble up our path . . . this is Mount Merino Manor.
