From the Forum: In Search of Rooms in Hudson


Readers, can you help? An Upstater has posted in the Forum that she’s in search of accommodations.

“My two dogs and I are relocating from Brooklyn to Hudson in September. Are there any houses with rooms available? I also have a baby on the way due in January so a farmhouse close to the train or another young family living in the home would be ideal.”

From the Forum: Favorite Dinner Spots Along the Taconic?

Aurelia Restaurant, Millbrook, NY

Aurelia Restaurant, Millbrook, NY

Readers, can you help your fellow Upstaters who posted a question in the Forum? These folks bought a house in the lovely town of Chatham, and want suggestions of where to stop along the way for chow. We’re thinking Millbrook might do the trick, what with its Hamptons-lite feel.

We admit that we’ve ever actually been in the Aurelia restaurant in Millbrook, for instance, but we’ve gaped from the sidewalk and thought, “That looks like a nice place to sup.”

Any other ideas of snacking spots between NYC and Chatham?

From the Forum: First-Time Buyer Questions

For so many of us, the actual purchase of a house in upstate New York is a mystery. Which is why these Upstater readers have posted their query in our Forum. 


1, Does one need a buyer’s agent in the process of purchasing a home or is dealing with the seller’s agent enough? Would a lawyer, rather than an agent, be better?

2, How much did the property taxes play a role in your own decision to buy in a specific area?

3, Is there some standard amount below the asking price that is considered reasonable to derive a first offer?


Readers, can you help?
