by Grace Bonney

Every day that Julia and I spend living in the Hudson Valley feels like a reaffirmation that our decision to move here full time was the right one. Each season brings new reasons to fall in love with this area all over again, and today I’m so excited to offer a BIG giveaway that will offer one lucky reader (plus a friend or loved one) the chance to come join us upstate for a weekend getaway!

To celebrate In the Company of Women being available for pre-order, we’re doing a special series of giveaways for the next five days. Anyone who pre-orders a book (tickets to the book tour events count, too!) is eligible to win a series of amazing prizes this week, so stay tuned for all of the giveaways here (and on our social channels) every morning this week. Today I’m sharing a tour of a beautiful, newly-renovated 18th century-era bed & breakfast in our area called Hasbrouck House.

In addition to today’s tour of the Hasbrouck House interior, one reader will have the chance to win a weekend getaway for a 2-night stay on October 14th-October 16th and dinner at Butterfield, the in-house restaurant. You’ll also receive a signed copy of the book (if I’m in town I’ll come drop it off in person!) and one of our limited-edition tote bags from the book tour.  Just fill out the form RIGHT HERE to register for a chance to win. *Please note: contest details and rules are on the form page. Travel is not provided, so you’ll need to be able to get to and from Stone Ridge, NY.

This September, Hasbrouck House officially reopened in the historic hamlet of Stone Ridge, New York. Originally built in 1757, this Dutch Colonial stone mansion was renovated by the Gowanus Hospitality Group to create a modern space for guests to stay, relax and enjoy incredible surrounding areas.
During its renovation, Hasbrouck House was expanded to include 20 unique rooms, each with its own updated, modern style. The property also includes a nearby carriage and stable houses that guests can rent if they want to bring a larger party with them.
The property’s 55 acres include a revitalized 50-foot landmark pool (perfect if you're planning a getaway next summer!), a lake, miles of newly forged trails and access to incredible state parks like Minnewaska State Park and The Catskills.
Akiva Reich and developer Eitan Baron bought and renovated this historic space over the course of a year, focusing on stripping each room back down to its most beautiful historic elements, like wide plank floors and stunning crown molding. Each room is outfitted with cozy linens and totally revamped bathrooms, as well as comfy chairs and sofas for relaxing.
Hasbrouck House partnered with local designers like Materia Designs, Jay Teske Leather Co., Upstate Stock, Stone Ridge Orchard and The Ship & The Whale to outfit the common areas and rooms with beautiful lighting, furniture and decorative details.
What I love most about these rooms is how simple and calming they are. This is the perfect spot for a weekend trip to get away from hectic city life, take a long hike and catch up on reading by the fire.
One of my favorite design details in the entire hotel is the collection of amazing restored campaign dressers and desks. They give a classic feel to the space, while still allowing the more modern elements, like lighting by Materia Designs, to stand out.
The bathrooms in each room got a total makeover, with beautiful bathtubs and brand-new showers that would feel right at home in any luxury hotel in a big city. But when contrasted with the old-world charm of the stone mansion, they make a beautiful design statement.
I was amazed at the incredible collection of rugs and textiles in the hotel. From antique carpets and pillows made from found rug remnants, all of the hotel's textiles add a nice layer of texture and warmth to the rooms. All of which will come in handy on cold winter days upstate!
So many of the hotel's original pieces of furniture were saved, recovered and worked into the modern decor for a mix of old and new.
In addition to the hotel, Hasbrouck House offers an in-house dining experience courtesy of Butterfield, their restaurant and bar. Created in collaboration with Co Hospitality, the team behind New York City’s Comodo and Colonia Verde restaurants, Butterfield is run by Executive Chef Shawn Burnette, formerly of Husk Restaurant in Charleston.
The restaurant's bar and menu pay homage to local purveyors and seasonal Hudson Valley food and wine.
A portion of the restaurant was once the outdoor patio of the original guest house, which is now enclosed and outfitted with blue velvet banquettes.
I loved all of the wallpaper choices around the hotel. They felt like a perfect mix of antique style, but done with a modern twist.
Lighting by local designers, Materia Designs.
Metallic shelving is accented by beautifully detailed wallpaper in all the common spaces.
Hasbrouck House's Stone Ridge property is a stunning space that offers access to great antique shopping, outdoor adventures and plenty of space to rest and relax.
Butterfield is now open and excited to host a meal for the winner of the contest giveaway!
