The Inn at Green River is located in the Hudson River Valley, just 2 miles from the Massachusetts border and the famous Berkshires. The Inn is ideally located near a wide variety of activities and attractions, including Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co., museums such as Norman Rockwell and Hancock Shaker Village and historic houses such as painter Frederic Church's Olana, Clermont and the Martin Van Buren National Historic site.
This simple 1830 Federal-style farmhouse is shaded by ancient sugar maples and sits above a meadow where Cranse Creek meets the Green River. The Inn offers upscale lodging in seven guest rooms, most with fireplaces, deep-soaking tubs, two-person showers or Jacuzzis. All the rooms have free WiFI access, and 5 have cable tv.
The Inn has become like a country home to many guests, who return repeatedly to enjoy the Inn's casual elegance, and beautiful, tranquil setting, and by the innkeeper's hospitality and scrumptious breakfasts, described as "feasts" by The New York Times.
A full breakfast is elegantly served in the candle-lighted dining room, or in the sun room. Freshly baked ream scones, biscuits, local jams and fresh fruit are constants. The house specialty is Malted Flour Pear Pancakes. See our video for the secret of how to create these.

Things To Do
The Inn at Green River offers first-class lodging near Tanglewood and many other Hudson Valley attractions, making it an ideal vacation spot. The Inn is located in Columbia County, in the northern part of the Hudson River Valley, and close to the Berkshires in Massachusetts.
In the summer, the Boston Symphony concerts at Tanglewood are a short twenty minute drive away, and we will show you the "back way" to avoid the traffic on Route 7. The Inn is also convenient to the Hancock Shaker, Berkshire and Norman Rockwell Museums, Clark Art Institute, MASSMoCA, Shakespeare & Co., the Berkshire Choral Festival, and Jacob's Pillow. Many summer stock theaters are nearby, and historic museum houses abound in Columbia and Berkshire counties, including Olana, Clermont, the Martin Van Buren home, the Mission House, Edith Wharton's The Mount, and Naumkeag.
Outdoor lovers may start the day with a leisurely walk down a quiet dirt road known to the locals as "the Dugway." Looking for a more energetic hike? Try Bashbish Falls in Taconic State Park, the Appalachian Trail or Bartholomew's Cobble, climb Monument Mountain or Mt. Greylock. Don’t miss the new Catamount Forest aerial adventure park, open May through October. Fishing, golfing, swimming and boating are close by.
Regardless of the day's activity, a visit to several area wineries for a tasting is always a good plan. You are here to relax after all. In the Berkshires, visit Les Trois Emme in New Marlborough and Furnace Brook Winery in Richmond. On the New York side, perhaps on your way home from antique hunting in Hudson, visit the Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent.
Even after the busy summer months, there are plenty of cultural options including the Berkshire Bach Society, the Berkshire International Film Festival, the Chatham Film Festival, the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, the Colonial Theater, and Close Encounters with Music. Antique shops, auction houses, and galleries abound in the area and are open year-round.
Winter brings cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing right to our back door, while "downhill" is minutes away at Catamount Ski Area or Butternut Basin.
Great shops and fabulous restaurants are always beckoning. Many of our fine restaurants strive to work with local farmers and purveyors to offer fresh, often organic, greens, fruits, vegetables, and meats.
