Enjoy a Bite at The Maker Cafe

Perfect for any time of day, enjoy an indulgent lunch or snack at The Maker Cafe, reminiscent of the coffeehouses of Europe. The cafe offers homemade bread and pastries from Bartlett House beside selections of classic cocktails, and a delicious menu of salads and sandwiches. We highly recommend the turkey, bacon, and avocado sandwich as well as the fried chicken sandwich after working up an appetite antiquing.

After sipping a craft cocktail to your content, dine in the exquisite Maker Restaurant serving seasonal plates from Executive Chef Michael Poirkoff with an emphasis on locality & community.

Enjoy a Fireside Nightcap or Seek Hummingbirds in the Rose Room

After dinner, relax by the living room fireplace with a nightcap or search for the hidden hummingbirds in the handpainted wallpaper of the Rose Room. The iconic wallpaper was designed by founder, Alina Roytberg, in collaboration with Catskill-based illustrator, Victoria Maxfield, who painted the subversive roses and hummingbirds in different combinations on oil on canvas before Roytberg added the additional design elements which give the wallpaper its depth and mural-like presence.

The Architect Studio imagines the world of an architect’s living space in the 1940’s and their vision of modern design.

I recently stayed in The Architect Studio and loved lounging by the black granite fireplace, relaxing in the deep soaking Roman tub spacious enough for two, and perusing the architectural design books sprinkled throughout the unique mid-century modern bookcase.

The space captures the mindset of The Gardener, inspired by late 19th-century iron garden pavilions where the exterior and interior blend seamlessly together. Wrought iron, normally reserved for outdoors, is blended with soft furnishings and various flora art to create a lush evocative space. Unique touches include a cast iron screen made from the grilles of 1908 Beaux-Arts Singer tower, and an antique Eastlake cast iron chandelier from 1870’s.

What Makes it Uncommon At A Glance

Original Detail

To ensure that the unique character and historic charm of the property greet each and every guest, the team behind this project preserved original architectural elements throughout the property such as breathtaking fireplaces in several guest rooms, wood flooring, decorative stain glass, foyer mosaic tiles, hand-painted ceilings, and more. Every room is completely unique and has a story to tell.

An Ode to Makers

A true love letter to makers and artisans, the property embodies the work of local Hudson Valley craftsmen at every turn. Sixth-generation master furniture restorer Gary Keegan rebuilt original fireplace mantles, antiques, and custom furniture; artist Michael Allen, painted an ethereal mural inspired by the Hudson Valley landscape on burlap in The Conservatory; and lighting designer Steven McKay worked with the team to create custom light fixtures throughout the property. We love a hotel that lives up to its name, and the team behind The Maker has created a canvas for the unique charm of Hudson and its local artisans to truly shine.

Vintage Treasures & Unique Art

The Maker itself is a work of art with vintage pieces making up over 70% of the property’s decor, and the personal art collection of founder Lev Glazman adorning the walls throughout the property’s intimate spaces. The result is a story of worldly travels and whimsical adventures exuding from every detail of The Maker while also lessening the environmental impact of the property – utilizing vintage pieces where possible and upcycled design elements. We love the eco-conscious design philosophy behind the decor that lends itself to special moments without forgetting sustainability.

Personal Touches at Every Turn

From the Perfume Library where guests can explore founder Lev Glazman’s favorite fragrances to the Eye Opener service delivering coffee and treats to guests’ rooms each morning, we love the personalized touches and the surprise and delight moments The Maker delivers.

Take the Experience Home

The Maker also offers custom-designed fragrances, candles, and pieces for purchase to bring the magic of The Maker Hudson home with you. Examples include custom beds designed by Glazman with architect Kipp Edick, which are a modern interpretation of antique French Louis XV style beds made in Portugal; customized Italian linen robes by Society Limonata; cocktail glasses designed by Nude Glass in Istanbul; and a line of custom fragrances from The Maker itself. We love the Ribbed High Ball Glasses that can be used for cocktails or simply sipping water in style.
