9 Places to Stay on Your Next Fall Upstate Getaway | Accommodations | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine

With any adventure, the first thing is always to establish a home base—a place to rest and refresh before you head off on your next expedition, whether that be a hike, a day on the slopes, or an antique hunt. Discover the coziest hotels and resorts in the region, with prime access to the area’s attractions.

There’s plenty of lodging in Greene County, but none as storied as the Glen Falls House in Round Top. True Catskills vintage, the resort has been operating continuously for 137 years. The current owners took over in 2017, restoring the facilities with a modern touch while retaining its traditional, 19th-century farmhouse charm. Visitors can expect nearly 50 acres of woods laced with hiking trails and landmark waterfalls, a tavern, and a restaurant with a wood stove for warming up after venturing out. Plus it’s only 30 minutes from Hunter Mountain.

Make your way to the town of Hunter itself and you’ll find Scribner’s Catskill Lodge at the foot of the mountain. During a major remodel in 2016, the resort’s 38 rooms, full-service restaurant, pool, and common spaces were redesigned with dark maple floors, vintage rugs, fireplaces, and custom furniture. Prospect, the on-site restaurant, serves up quintessential American cuisine that incorporates locally sourced products and vegetables grown on the premises.

Woodstock Way is the hotel to stay at when you visit the titular hippie town. Located right off Tinker Street on Waterfall Way, it’s in walking distance to the village’s many galleries, shops, restaurants, hiking trails, and swimming holes. The cabins and suites were built from locally sourced woods and other reclaimed materials and decorated with rich rugs and white accents, creating a modern lodge feel. The Tannery, the ground floor lobby and cafe, sports a hip, contemporary vibe. It’s named after the neighboring brook, which you can hear as you lounge on the leather sectional.

Further south in Ulster County, Saint Hubert’s Lodge is a quaint, romantic B&B in Marlboro. More than just a bed and a bite of breakfast, the lodge offers 165 acres to explore. The grounds offer plenty of seclusion, whether you stay in one of the three lodge suites or a cabin. Fall is a great time to book your stay here—there’s a private apple orchard on-site for all guests to enjoy.

In Mount Tremper, The Pines is a chic roadhouse that opened its doors in spring 2017. It may not look like much from the outside, but inside are five freshly refinished hotel rooms: two private suites with their own bathrooms and three small bedrooms that share a washroom. Downstairs, the bar and restaurant are in full swing with a casual Latin-inspired menu, live music, and outdoor seating.

The Central House has been a staple of Germantown for over a century. Since 1876, the space has gone from brothel to speakeasy to coach house to restaurant. And in 2011, it reopened as a lodging destination. The historic hotel offers six bedrooms, each with private bath, internet access, and flat-screen TV. Outside the rooms, guests enjoy the building’s veranda, a fireplace in the second-floor common room, and continental breakfast.

You’ll feel at ease and in touch with your creativity at Hotel Tivoli. Owned by two painters, this boutique hotel is brimming with artistic energy. The interior is adorned with colorful art pieces, far-out furniture, and creative lighting fixtures against delicate, white and cream-colored walls. Hotel Tivoli’s downstairs restaurant, The Corner, serves up farm-to-table fare. Located on the corner of Montgomery and Broadway, you’ll be right in the center of this hip Dutchess County village.

Troutbeck is a country house estate in Amenia with no shortage of places to explore. Enjoy a stay in one of the 17 guest rooms in the central Manor House or the adjacent four-bedroom Century Lodge (with the option of breakfast in bed, how luxurious!). The Manor House is the epicenter of this idyllic property, with its art gallery, bar, dining room, ballroom, library, and living room. The grounds boast three trout fishing holes, a pool and grill, a movement studio, garden, stone walls and bridges, and acres of nature to get lost in.

And finally, in Hudson, Rivertown Lodge’s relaxed, simple presence brings vacation vibes to Warren Street. Though the black-and-white front of the building has an understated Hollywood marquee vibe to it; inside, Rivertown’s 27 spacious suites have a cozy feel. Flooded with light from the factory windows, the rooms’ shelves are lined with books, records, vintage radios, and textiles that make you feel right at home. The hotel’s communal kitchen and living room area, with its wood stove, make perfect habitats for cold weather lounging. While the warm weather lasts, head to the backyard, for a meal at the picnic tables or a round of ping pong.
