Roxanne gave us a very warm welcome and upgraded our room as it was such a dismal, dark day! So we had a wonderful view over the Hudson the next morning when the rain had cleared. Our bed was comfortable and we had plenty of room for storage. The whole house was sumptuously decorated and furnished with plenty of corners...

Beautiful, clean and best stay in every way. Lots of thought has been put into exceeding what makes a traveler feel at home, and comfortable during their stay. If you are lucky: you'll get a demonstration of the Thunderbirds Air Show while you eat breakfast like we did: 3 fly Thunderbird fly by's in formation. If that wasn't enough, after...

“We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at Overlook! The rooms, and house in general, were beautifully appointed, the hosts Roxanne and Jim were extremely gracious, and our breakfasts were fantastic, compliments to chef Jim. We ate at the reasonable hour of 9 a.m. in a gorgeous dining room under a crystal chandelier with exquisite Ralph Lauren dishware and sterling silver...

The house was really nice, with lots of public rooms, lovely view of the Hudson, great breakfast, well located near Dia Beacon, Storm King, Hyde Park (a bit further) and nice Hudson Valley restaurants. But what makes this place special is the hospitality of the hosts (and their knowledge of the area). We had a great two days here. Highly...

Resting softly on the foundation of the JPMorgan seasonal home, Overlook on Hudson is a peaceful respite near the heart of our recent tour of the Hudson River Valley. We stayed in the suite in which Billy Joel wrote his masterpiece, New York State of Mind. With accelerated expectations for this stay sky high, our every expectation was exceeded. Our...

This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. The view out over the Hudson was breathtaking. Roxanne our host was friendly, welcoming and knowledgable and the house and the room were perfect. We didn't realise there was a pool when we booked, so that was a bonus-truly glorious to swim and look up and the huge...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Overlook on Hudson. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and well furnished and the grounds and views were exceptional! We loved the gourmet breakfasts and lounging by the pool, and Roxanne and Jim could not have been more gracious hosts. The inn was also in close proximity to lots of great...

We discovered Overlook on the Hudson this past June and have returned twice since! This gorgeous, immaculate and impeccably decorated gem is tucked away and opens into breathtaking panoramic views of the Hudson. The rooms are cozy and thoughtfully supplied with everything to pamper you including luxurious high end mattresses, bedding, towels and toiletries. Roxanne and Jim are delightful hosts...

Stayed 1 night in the Billy Joel room – not surprisingly decorated in a Billy Joel theme – which was spacious and had a very comfortable bed with a nice view out over the Hudson River. House was nicely furnished including a comfortable sitting room available to guests with a large fireplace and stocked fridge/bar. Phenomenal view across the Hudson...

It's hard to believe that such a restful and beautiful spot is so easily accessed by New York City...and boy did we need it. It was the perfect setting for my husband and I to unwind, take a deep breath, and feel the gracious care of our hosts. The view is a feast for the eyes, the decor and surroundings...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlook on Hudson Bed and Breakfast, located on the bank of the scenic Hudson River,is just minutes from West Point and less than one hour from New York City. The B and B was built on the original foundation of financier JP Morgan's 1880 home where the fireplaces and expansive patio's still exist. In the mid 1970's it was the residence of Billy Joel where he composed his popular song 'New York State of Mind'. In addition to the incredible river front property, tastefully decorated rooms and original art work throughout, china, silver, crystal, and exceptional bed linens are used to further pamper you. From our B and B you can visit the Hudson Valley's historic sites, Storm King Art Center, Woodbury Commons Premium shopping Outlets, or choose to just relax poolside and enjoy the boats passing by on the river. ... more   less
