Hudson Valley Musing


Olana a must see Hudson Valley Historic site

Olana a must see Hudson Valley Historic site .  This beautiful inspired Persian designed home is perched high above the Hudson River , and enjoy spectacular views of the Catskill Mountains.

This was the home of Frederic Church a painter; and I must say for inspiration he picked the perfect spot for his house and studio.  Having visited Olana during each season I can understand why one would be mesmerized by the views down the Hudson River as well as those of the Catskill Mountain.  Fall is approaching and I can’t wait to see the fall foliage from up high at Olana.

So where exactly is Olana?  It is located just minutes outside of the City of Hudson NY at 5720 Route 9G,  Hudson NY 12534.  There are a variety of ways to get to Olana, including by train.  There is an Amtrak station in Hudson and you could take a taxi to the site.

The Video below will give you a preview of the type of breathtaking scenes you will see.  When you visit you will then understand why I consider Olana a must see Hudson Valley Historic site

Debbie Barbara and George it is a wonderful place to visit.  I espcially love the views.  I haven't gone up there in the dead of when the river is frozen, that too should be an awesome view.

The hudson valley region is simply lovely, especially this time of the year when we are about to go into Fall.  I think that it maybe time to packup the family for a week trip.  Thank and have a wonderful weekend.
