Welcome To The Historic
Overlook on Hudson Bed & Breakfast

Located on the banks of the scenic Hudson River, Overlook on Hudson is just minutes from West Point and less than one hour from New York City. The historic property was originally owned by financier JP Morgan. The current structure was built on the original foundation of Morgan’s 1880 mansion and the fireplaces and expansive patios are still part of this lovely B and B. During the 1970’s, Overlook on Hudson was home to world renowned recording artist Billy Joel where he composed his popular song, “New York State of Mind.” In addition to expansive views of the beautiful Hudson River, great location, tastefully decorated rooms and original art throughout, guests enjoy luxurious bed linens, china, silver and crystal to enhance your visit. Owners Jim and Roxanne Donnery will tend to your every need while providing you with comfort at every level.

Nearby attractions include the Hudson Valley’s many Revolutionary Era historic sites, Storm King Art Center, Bear Mountain State Park, Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets or simply relax poolside and enjoy the water craft traveling the majestic Hudson.

Guest Reviews

We always love to hear from our guests. Here is a small sample of reviews our guests have written for others about their experience at Overlook On Hudson on both Trip Advisor and BedAndBreakfast.com.

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! Doug
