House Rules

Happy guests make happy hosts. Our goal is to provide a lovely, relaxing and convenient environment for your stay in Hudson. We want you to Sleep. Eat. Repeat!

If you need something, ask. If there is a problem with your room, tell us so that we can make your stay with us one you will remember fondly.

Westcott House accepts checks, cash and credit cards. Prices are exclusive of 8% sales tax. We prefer payment in full when you place your reservation.

We understand that plans can change. If you need to cancel, we will provide a full refund if you notify us ten days prior (less a $25 service fee). Cancellations within ten days of your arrival will be charged the service fee and 50% if we are unable to rebook your room. Cancellations made after 5 pm Thursday for a weekend stay will be charged the full reservation, unless rebooked. There is no penalty if we are able to rebook the room, except the $25 service fee.

We require a two-night minimum for all weekends from April through November and a three-night minimum for long holiday weekends throughout the year. We can work with you, bookings permitting, for single night staysIf your host can accomodate a single night stay, there is a $50 surcharge.


Check-in time is 2 – 5 PM. If you plan to arrive outside this window, please notify us so that we can arrange for greeting you on arrival. Checkout is 11 AM. Breakfast begins at 8 am and is available until 10 am. At 8 we put out a continental breakfast. Hot breakfast is served at 9.

For the relaxation and pleasure of all our guests, pets are not permitted. We do not have cribs or children’s beds and the environment is designed for adults wanting an elegant and comfortable get-away. We will consider all situations but please check with us in advance so that we can mutually agree on the best plan if your time away includes children.

Rooms are designed for single or double occupancy. We have several air mattresses, so please inform us if your group includes additional guests so that we can accommodate your situation. Not all rooms are suited for the air mattresses so guests must clear this in advance of arrival. Fee of $50 will be charged for the third person. Smoking, of any kind, is not permitted.

Parking – Parking is free on our block and alternate side rules are in effect week long excepting summer weekends. Additionally, there is a city lot ½ block East on Columbia Street.

Weddings: Weddings are wonderful life moments! We welcome wedding guests and can reserve the house for your guests’ exclusive use. We have added irons and steamers for your use (something the typical Hudson visitor rarely requires). There are specific guidelines and a contract we can forward to you upon request.

Finally, we would note that this house is our home and for the exclusive use of our guests. Friends’ and acquaintances’ visits must be cleared with your host in advance.
