About this listing
Nice light-filled open loft. Peep love the space and their stays, please read reviews. No door to below.
Bathroom is floor below, down hall & shared if anyone else is staying at house.
There is some noise from the street, esp on weekends.
A bright and airy loft space on the top floor of a townhouse on Hudson's reknowned Warren Street. Although the house is being gradually refurbished and was built in the early 1800's, this floor has been fully updated. It is the entire third floor and private though there is NO DOOR between the loft and staircase (see photo of staircase). Only you and your guest(s) will be up there during your stay.
Contemporary furnishings from NYC SoHo showrooms allow for reading, working and relaxing. Floor and ceiling fixtures allow lighting for any task and any mood. Plentiful outlets and powerstrips to charge everyone's everythings simultaneously.
A quality queen sized mattress, good bed linens (courtesy of my Mother), and 5 star hotel quality towels provided (courtesy of the Four Seasons, W and others-unbeknownst to them). All freshly laundered for new guests with unscented non-allergenic detergent. Plenty of pillows and blankets provided.
Sun flows freely in from abundant windows and skylight. Front offers views onto Warren Street, and rear has Mount Merino and Catskill views.
Excellent for weekend trip or extended stay to study or focus on a project (as many a friend has done).
Bathroom on the floor below, retains original charm (aka "needs updating" but this is Hudson, not the Hamptons!) with original claw foot tub with shower and unique marble sink. So far everyone has liked it (except for one old cranky person), and even advised me not to renovate it too much. Excellent hot water and water pressure for refreshing showers and baths. It is shared - if anyone else is in house. I am putting in another bathroom, and when that is done, the price will be commensurate with the new features (i.e it will go up!).
The two best breakfast restaurants are literally next door and across the street. Both have very tasty cuisine and do not disappoint sophisticated palates. Excellent lunch and dinner options as close or a short stroll as well.
ALL of Hudson's dining, antiques dealers, art galleries, boutiques, shops and cultural venues are within walking distance.
The Amtrak railroad station with trains to New York's Penn Station is a 5-7 minute walk away. Or a 1-2 minute taxi ride which will cost approx $3 before tip.
No air mattress on the floor jammed in a corner for your guests. The day bed is a full-sized mattress and sofa converts to twin bed.
Hair dryer and umbrellas available for guests. My wireless internet has a strong signal in the space.
My place is not "loft-like" it IS a real open loft, in an 1800's Federal townhouse, as opposed to typically smaller rooms in these houses. Fully updated with climate control you set to your own preferences and lots of accessible electrical outlets you won't be crawling around to locate or unplugging other things from. Rest of house is old to very old with many rough edges, please be ready to cope w the idiosyncrasies of a 200 year old house.
All the charm of the historic townhouse combined with all the comfort of a new highrise.

A world traveler, constant student of life, meditator and tennis player. For livelihood a strategic business consultant and trader with an old house in Hudson, NY slowly refurbishing into a home. House is waaaay too large for one person so voila! airbnb!
I've lived in New York, LA, Paris, Shanghai and Bangkok and travel extensively so understand what a traveler needs for a comfortable stay. Parts of my house range from 2 star ramshackle to 5 star luxury. All of it comfortable or appealing in its own way.
As a host, I want to ensure a comfortable and memorable for all the right reasons stay.
