In 2013 the Hudson Milliner Guesthouse & Inn opened as a refuge for urbanites in search of refined comfort in classical surroundings. One step inside the newly-renovated 19th century hat shop transports the present to an ageless luxury designed to captivate time. The refined details of each room heighten the awareness of precious moments passing into a weekend of bliss accompanied by the innumerable pleasures of the modern world.
The Hudson Milliner Guesthouse & Inn is located on Warren Street, the main thoroughfare of Hudson. This proximity to the town's restaurants, shops, and bars allows guest to enjoy a car-free and carefree getaway a mere two-hours from New York City.
All rooms have high-speed internet and central air.
The pre-tin plaster moldings, solid mahogany stairwells, pocket doors with etched glass inlay, large mahogany framed windows and gorgeous hardwood floors compliment meticulously styled kitchens and bathrooms with carefully restored fixtures such as vintage electric and gas stoves and refrigerators.
The Hudson Milliner Guesthouse & Inn is all about living life for the future tempered by the understanding of the past, so come up the river to where every new season becomes a gift of living.

Great for urbanites in need of sun, space, luxury, antiques, fine dining, nature walks & culture: located on the main drag of Warren Street, it's a 10 minute walk from the train station. Once a milliner's hat shop built in 1860, you are transported straight into another time the moment you enter. Many original details are still in place: pre-tin plaster moldings, solid mahogany stairwells, pocket doors with etched glass inlay, large mahogany framed windows and gorgeous hardwood floors. The kitchen and bathrooms have been carefully renovated to fit in style with carefully selected and restored fixtures, such as an electric stove from the forties and a refrigerator from that period as well. Add central air, high speed internet and a washer/dryer on premise: the perfect getaway.
As busy New Yorkers we understand the need for R & R. We liked the idea of a B&B, but had something a bit more intimate in mind: a romantic place, going back in time, where our guests could come into town, immediately immerse into the surroundings and also if need be withdraw and cook for themselves in a spacious retro kitchen. In another words: a romantic spacious getaway with the beauty of clean air and a country vibe along with the luxury of great restaurants, live entertainment and quality antiquing/shopping
My adult children and I booked the two top floor rooms at the Milliner (Bowler & Top Hat rooms) for an August visit and really loved the location, amenities and charm. The place is old and quirky (creaky stairs, antique tubs) but had been carefully updated to make it comfortable for modern tastes without sacrificing character or authenticity. Warren Street is out front and the church steeple is out back but I was surprised at how quiet, spacious and airy it was. Glad to say the AC worked great too, not always a given in older buildings. Because of the steep stairs, tubs etc. I wouldn't recommend it for families with little kids or with mobility issues, but for location, charm and amenities we give it six thumbs up!
Charlotta and Shannon have created special hideaways in this Historic building. We landed on Warren Street quite late, having come up from the city, and should have downloaded the email full of instructions they sent the day before! So, we arrived a little lost, but once we found our way, we were inside the building and making tea in our spacious classic kitchen outfitted with antiques and modern alike. Everything works, the space was huge- big enough for two adults and two children on air mattresses- the sheets and towels were soft and the area is phenomenal.
We will be returning.
Wow, wow, wow. It doesn't get much better then the Hudson Milliner apartments. If you're into design you will be very excited to spend a few days in Charlotta's building. So many small details with fixtures, art, furniture, etc... so there is a little surprise around every corner of the apartment. It's on Warren Street (the main street in Hudson) which means there is fun stuff to check out in both directions of the apartment. My wife and I spent 5 hours on a Saturday cruising, shopping, stopping for coffee at super cool joints (a few times!), eating tacos (at the taco truck up the street) and hanging in the park at the end of the street (overlooking the Hudson River).

Our family took over the Milliner and enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect. The beds are very comfortable. We liked the Tanzy for breakfast. We were in town for a wedding at the Hill. Guests stayed in various places around Hudson. Everyone agreed that the Milliner was the best place to stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hudson Milliner. We stayed in the Bowler, which is on the third floor. (note of warning - this means two steep flights of old wooden stairs. We considered it a boost to our exercise routine) This suite has a wonderful white tiled kitchen, with a big central table. Sunshine streams into this room, as it does into the living room end of the adjacent bed/sitting room. The bed was comfortable, as was the seating area. Kitchen was well equipped, lacking only a fully functional freezer compartment in the refurbished refrigerator. Location was great for exploring Hudson, easy access to great restaurants. It proved to be a perfect base for exploring the Hudson River Valley. Parking on the street in front of the building was always available on the days we were there.
I have to admire this renovation and the aesthetic behind it. The building has been brought back to life, but old materials and surfaces left unchanged where it was possible. The artwork, upholstery, bedding are well chosen and out of the ordinary. We enjoyed staying in the Milliner in much the same way we might enjoy a visit in the home of a friend with artistic flair. For me, it's one of the treats of travel.
This property has been renovated very nicely. The Bowler room was warm and cozy. The original appliances, claw foot tub and original floors were such a throw back and an awesome look. The owner gave us great information about the town, restaurants, shows and night life. We ate at the fish and game restaurant, which was a great experience with great food. Also the Hellsinski club has shows going on every week. Check it out. We saw the Circus show. You can eat your meal while the show is going on. It was great. The building is set up so you could get away with a few couples each having their own rooms and eat in, in anyone's apartment because they all have great kitchens. The Bowler being the largest. We will definitely be back!!
Hudson is a rural community with an urban twist. You have nature in rolling hills, farm stands, farms you can visit, beaches, nature reserves, waterfalls too. The locals are friendly, savvy and happy to share Hudson.
