The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Meet Hudson’s Emerging Artists and Photographers

A slew of new galleries and bars are moving into this upstate city’s dated factories.


1. Where to Stay

Lounge among Victorian furnishings at the Mount Merino Manor.  

Receive a 20 percent discount on Italian dishes at the Ca'Mea restaurant next door when you stay at Inn at Ca'Mea (from $120), a renovated guesthouse from the 1800s. Request room 2 or 4 if you’re the social sort; their balconies overlook the restaurant’s garden, a community hangout on summer evenings. If not, ask for one of the five new rooms, which were added on this June.

Gaze at the Catskills from the wraparound porch of the Mount Merino Manor (from $175), a seven-room country inn. Hike the carriage paths of neighboring historic site Olana, the former home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church.

Admire Victorian details like claw-foot tubs, toile de Jouy fabrics, stained glass, and hand-painted furniture at Country Squire Bed & Breakfast (from $165), a five-room former convent. Owner Paul Barrett will pick you up from the Amtrak Station in his 1976 station wagon to ferry you back to the house.
