Each of our innkeepers will be happy to assist you in planning your upstate New York vacation. We can point you to everything from the very small - like a book fair and tag sale in Clermont - to the biggest - the County Fair in Chatham. We all know "the best" apple orchard in October or a maple sugaring barn in March to find the sweetest treats. Other treats to find, be they antiques, art galleries, theater, dance, music and blueberry festivals, wedding venues, or that special dinner for two can be found in our county seat, Hudson, and throughout the many towns and villages in Columbia County, New York. Below are a few more ideas to help you plan your New York vacation with us.
