Eco-Tourism On The Hudson

The opportunities to enjoy nature near the Inn are varied and abundant. Mountains, lakes, rivers and wildlife are a big part of the attraction of visiting the Hudson River Valley year round.

Our four distinct seasons can be enjoyed in a range of ways from indoor snuggling by the fireplace in winter to summer days in the pool. And if you choose to leave the Inn and it’s grounds here are some of our favorite suggestions for nature related activites.
