Vandercook

$189.00 / $219.00 night

The detailed raised paneled woodwork of the white mantel provides a striking accent against the tan toile roman shades, chocolate walls and large black armoire in this elegant ground floor room. The french door opens out to your own private garden and the back lawn and fish pool beyond.

The Inn's bathrooms are far from ordinary. This bath features a handsome granite topped mahogany vanity and a tiled shower for two with shower heads on opposing walls.

The Vandercook room's red French door leads to a small private patio area surrounded by plantings of various hydrangeas. To the left, the hillside garden (best viewed from the Thorsden and Merrill rooms) is also shown with its large Giant Fleeceflowers with their white plumes (Persicaria polymorpha or Polygonum polymorpha). The unusual tree at the corner of the house is Heptacodium miconioides (Seven Son Flower). Deborah and her landscaper, Tom Carty, like to work with native or lesser known but hardy plants. You will enjoy walking around all the Inn's gardens.

Thorsden

$239.00 / $289.00 night

 

If you imagine spending your honeymoon engulfed in the beauty of New York State and relaxing in elegant luxury, then the Inn at Green River is where you want to be.

Locations for New York State romantic getaways may abound, but you will not find any others like the Inn at Green River. The casual elegance, beautiful natural surroundings, warm hospitality, and decadent breakfasts provide a truly remarkable experience for each of our guests. The surrounding areas offer many wonderful points of interest. Whether you spend the day exploring or enjoying a relaxed day at the Inn with the one you love, you will quickly become enchanted by this beautiful area.

The Thorsden Room, a large, corner room in the new west wing, has a fireplace and five toile-draped windows, with views of the hillside garden and the former church next door. It is named after the madam, "Ma" Thorsden, who ran the Inn as a bordello in the 1930s and '40s, despite its location next to the church and history as a one-time parsonage!

Above the king bed is a fabulous, unfinished, hooked rug by well-known rug designer, Pearl McGown. The design is from the 1950s. Deborah considers it folk art! The custom-made red armoire meant to invoke a Hudson River Valley Dutch "kass" provides closet space and holds the flat-screen cable TV.

In the bathroom, a wonderful floral tole chandelier hangs above the large Jacuzzi-style tub with shower. The decor is aptly described in America's Wonderful Little Hotels and Inns as an "eclectic mix ... totally charming and mercifully devoid of country kitsch."

Merrill

$209.00 / $279.00 night

Take some time to get away to New York state and our cozy country inn, where you'll enjoy unique B&B lodging in the Berkshires.

Located in the new west wing of the Inn at Green River, the pale hues in this large, ground-floor room provide a peaceful backdrop to a serene work by artist Gail Giles, a charcoal triptych of Hudson River views.

French doors open out onto your own small, sunken terrace. Inconspicuous white grab bars in the whirlpool tub and behind the toilet are all that signal that this room is handicap accessible. The sink, a marble antique found at a salvage shop in Hudson, meets the ADA codes.

A large ceramic urn holds goldfish and papyrus plants on the sunken patio, which faces a hillside garden and a potting shed designed by Deborah, using old windows removed from the Inn during renovation.

Consider adding an extra special touch to your stay with us. We have several specials available that will take your vacation and time in the Berkshires to the next level.

Martin Van Buren

$189.00 / $239.00 night

 

A very special room: a 16 ft. cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace, and large windows with a pastoral view of an old apple orchard, the herb and cutting garden, meadows, and an ancient abandoned cemetery. Situated on the second floor in the back wing, it feels especially private.

There are two beds, a king and a twin. The large bathroom features two sinks, a shower and a 5 1/2-foot soaking tub.

The parterre design of the garden is clearly visible from the Van Buren room, but just as pretty shown here at ground level with the old apple trees as a back drop.

Harvey Crandell

$139.00 / $159.00 night

The view from the east facing window in this charming room is through the branches of a large silver maple, overlooking the east lawn.

Susan Spano, when visiting the inn to include in her New York Times "Frugal Traveler" column, enjoyed staying in this room.

In Spring 2008 we built a new ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub, also with a window overlooking the lower gardens.

    Whole House and Holidays Cancellation Policy

    Rates/policies are subject to change and vary during high impact periods and for special requests. A 30-day cancellation notice is required on whole house bookings or when three or more rooms are booked, and for some holidays and special events.

    Green Policy

    We try hard to limit the Inn's environmental footprint. We compost all food scraps, which eventually turn into great soil for our gardens. We recycle plastic, glass, aluminum, and paper. We urge you to enjoy our own natural well water and avoid purchased water in plastic bottles. We mow our lawns with a push mower, which doesn't use much gas, and we never put poisons or weed killers on the lawn or gardens (except occasionally on the roses!). Hence, there is a healthy frog, toad, and bird population for you to enjoy watching and listening to, as we haven't killed all the insects! We dry our sheets and pillow cases on the line in warm weather, both because you will enjoy how fresh the linens smell, and because it saves electricity. We ask you to tell us if you wish to use your towels more than one day to save water and energy, but we'll certainly abide by your wishes if you want them changed daily. We try to offer locally grown and made produce, eggs, milk, jams, fruit, etc. as often as possible, and we can direct you to great farm stands, farmer's markets, and restaurants which offer the same. We pride ourselves on making our breakfasts the old fashioned way...everything is made from scratch, not pre-made mixes. You will enjoy the difference!
