Housing: Thinking Outside of Ordinary Hotels
There are a handful of dainty hotels found within the city of Hudson, but for those who are truly looking to get away from the sensory overload, renting a private home on the outskirts of Hudson is always an option worth looking into. There is a large variety of types of homes available and a quick scan through Airbnb will reveal one's options. During my short trip, I retired in a mid-19th century home that was hidden deep within a wood. A swift trip through a dirt road that weaves within the woods revealed an oasis of property. A handsome dark-stone home rested on the edge of the hill, allowing it to overlook much of the surrounding area and beyond.
Spread out in the yard, tall evergreen trees spread out from one another, while still ensuring that the yard was abundant with open space. An outdoor shower was placed shyly next to the homeowner's stock of firewood. The interior continued the mid-19th-century aesthetic but was modernised with a stainless steel kitchen and a good amount of contemporary artwork. The crown jewel of it all was the home's patio: an outdoor pavilion that felt both indoors and outdoors because of its stone foundation but breathtaking view of the wood and beyond.
