Place to Stay: Hudson Merchant House
What really made the trip to Hudson over-the-top enjoyable was our stay at the Hudson Merchant House. I spotted the boutique bed and breakfast on Jamie's blog a few months back and bookmarked it for our fall trip plans. The completely renovated 1700s home is cozy and warm, yet clean and modern. It houses beautiful furniture, charming vintage accents, stacks of lovely, old books and two accommodating hosts (and their sweet dog, Shelby).
My breakfasts there were delicious, a selection of fruit and pastries alongside things like freshly baked monkey bread, a goat cheese and asparagus tart, and zucchini bread French toast. On Saturday afternoon, we stopped in to drop off our haul from the farmers' market and were greeted at the door by a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies. That's the kind of stuff that makes you want to go back to a place over and over again.
