A Valley Rich in History
The Overlook on Hudson Bed & Breakfast, in addition to its provenance as the original Cragston manor of JP Morgan, is located in heart of Revolutionary War territory.
We got the tour & history, a beautiful home that had surprises around every corner, much larger from the inside than from the approach. Our room was wonderful, with an incredibly comfortable bed and a settee that was outfitted for our daughter to sleep on. A picture window framed the view across the Hudson. We went down to the patio & pool. Lynn & I enjoyed a bottle of wine watching the full moon rise over the river while our daughter had a starlit swim in the pool. What a great setting! Randy
We only spent one night here, but wish it could have been more. The Donnery’s are great hosts who gave us recommendations on what to do in the area and were pleasant and accommodating.Chris G.
Everything about this bed and breakfast was wonderful. Roxanne highly recommended we arrive in time to sit outside and enjoy the view before it got dark, and are we ever glad we did. She set up comfy chairs for us, poured wine and left us to relax overlooking the beautiful Hudson, the boats and the wonderful fall foliage. Just breathtaking! Eileen
The place has great charm and incredible views. It is short distance to West Point as well as to Bear Mountain where you can find some amazing hiking trails. If you want to get in some shopping, Woodbury Commons Outlet is only a short drive away. I recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the area. Make sure to ask for Pecan muffins!
