Hudson River’s Hutton Brickyards resort has restored and reopened a 150-year-old stately hall, complementing its ostentatious exterior with a dozen pared-back guest rooms.
Edgewood Mansion was built in 1873 for brick manufacturer John H Cordts in the Second Empire architectural style – characterised by its eclecticism and use of ornate, decorative details and ‘modern’ materials. William Hutton’s name is more obviously attached to the brickyard, but Cordts ran it for a quarter of a century, and he built his own home on a hill above the yard on a bend in the Hudson River with views out to Rondout Creek.
Hutton’s has left its thumbprint across New York, having sent building materials to the surrounding Hudson Valley area and the rapidly growing New York. The complex ceased production in 1980, and today, the 73-acre site has been reborn as a cabin resort and spa that celebrates the landscape.
Edgewood is the latest addition to Hutton Brickyards’ hospitality offering, with 12 rooms starting from $166 for a standard Queen. Each space is decked in a soothing palette of crisp white and dove grey shades. Four poster beds, chandeliers and vintage furniture nod to the mansion’s past. Guests can book into the Edgewood Suite, which has a separate sleeping and living area and a dining space tucked into a bay window if they want more of a taste of mansion life.
