About Jack and Mary Ellen

The owners are from the Hudson Valley and live full time on the property in a separate home they built in 2000.

Jack and Mary Ellen purchased this house in 2008

Why Jack and Mary Ellen chose Hudson

We love the Hudson Valley and wanted to share our view of the river and mountains with our family and friends and now guests. The property is contiguous to our original property and when the opportunity presented itself we made the purchase and completely renovated our 'guest house'.

What makes this house unique

The views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains are breathtaking and the glorious sunsets never cease to amaze. The privacy and tranquillity along with the astonishing wildlife makes this property a true treasure.

Magical Home on the Hudson

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in many VRBO properties up and down the eastern seaboard, we found this home to be by far the nicest. The house itself is very well appointed and private. The western views across the Hudson to the mountains are breathtaking. The owners are delightful and very responsive. We have already booked a return visit.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great get-away at the Hudson River House. Everything here is first class and the view of the Hudson and Catskills Mountains is unobstructed and unsurpassed! Jack and Mary Eleen were very helpful and have provided more than one could ever need. The Hillsboro NJ folks have said it all and we say "ditto" to that.

Our Favorite Destination - An Amazing Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We just thoroughly enjoyed our third stay at this peaceful destination. I've written two previous reviews about the hosts, privacy, comfort, views, etc, so I won't be redundant. The consistency of the cleanliness, stocking of supplies, maintenance of the property - inside and out - is incredible. We noticed some new dishes, glasses, towels and just small thoughtful items everywhere. The owners are true hosts and really enjoy having others delight in the relaxing oasis they've worked so hard to create, and continually recreate. Even though the area offers so much to do outdoors and in the cute town of Hudson (just two miles away), we hardly left this spot. For the entire week we read, slept, drank wine, cooked, took bubble baths and did a lot of NOTHING. We enjoyed some of the great restaurants in Hudson, but found ourselves prefering to be "home" because we never wanted to miss a spectacular sunset. Just can't say enough wonderful things about Jack and Maryellen and this stunning destination. Next trip is already booked and we CAN'T wait. Thank you, both, for all you do!

Photos don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

A truly a excellent property. Jack and Mary could not have been better hosts. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home, our hosts had really thought of everything. Beautiful sunsets over the Hudson don't get much better. The only problem you will have is you won't want to leave!

We loved our stay in Hudson. Jack and Mary Ellen have created the perfect retreat and are gracious hosts. The property offers magnificent views and their home is beautiful. Plenty to do in the area- great hiking and dining. Fantastic experience.

Beautiful House/Beautiful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Hudson River House and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. A beautifully renovated home in a beautiful setting overlooking the Hudson River, with the town of Hudson just a few minutes away. The owners, Jack and Mary Ellen, take great pride in the home and maintain it immaculately. They are friendly, helpful and responsive to their guests needs and are just a phone call away in the event you need anything. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from the bustle of the city for a few days (or longer in our case) without hesitation.
