18 Rooms / 5 Suites
As you pull up to Glenmere Mansion, you may think you’re vacationing in the Tuscan countryside, and any thought that you’re only 60 minutes outside of Manhattan will slowly disappear. And that’s the point. This charming boutique hotel in the Lower Hudson Valley once served as the home to wealthy industrialist, Robert Goelet, who built this structure as a personal residence back in 1911. Today, the property has been meticulously renovated and transformed into a luxury hotel, attracting the posh set from nearby New York City and Greenwich, Connecticut looking for a relaxing stay.
Overlooking Glenmere Lake, the hilltop hotel holds only 18 guest rooms, making a visit here feel secluded. Unwind in the hotel’s library, which affords a whole slew of reading material including stylish coffee table books, or retreat to the living room, which features a baby grand piano as well as a wall of windows overlooking the grounds. When it comes time for a meal, post up at The Supper Club, Glenmere’s high-end restaurant incorporating fresh local ingredients, or grab a more casual bite at Frogs End.
No trip to Glenmere Mansion would be complete without a bit of pampering, and The Spa at Glenmere provides the ultimate escape with a hammam and bath house swathed in Carrara marble, steam and cool mist rooms and an elegant relaxation area. Take a moment to walk around the expertly manicured gardens, some of which were designed by famous female landscape architect Beatrix Jones Farrand back when the original structure was built.
