Apartment In Historic 1785 Thomas Jenkins House

Apartment in Hudson with kitchen
Although this is a new listing on VRBO ,we are not strangers to renting and managing apartments. We have rented this and two other apartments in the building on long term leases since 2007. This apartment is very bright thanks to 3 large windows facing the street and 4 windows on the side facing the garden which is a rarity on Warren Street.The apartment offers a complete kitchen including a large oven, dishwasher, microwave and all the necessary utensils to prepare breakfast,lunch and diner should you decide to eat in. The kitchen island offers seating for two and the dining table seats 6 adult comfortably. The large bedroom offers a king size bed, flat screen tv and plenty of storage .This apartment is perfectly suited for the business traveler or a vacation stay in Hudson .My family and I live in the ground floor apartment and assure you that we will answer and address any questions or issues promptly.A bit of history:This grand Federal style house at 216-220 Warren Street was originally built, probably in the last decade of the 18th century, for Thomas Jenkins, who is believed to have been the richest of the original Proprietors. It was Thomas who, with his brother Seth, set out from Nantucket in 1783 to find a safe harbor for their vessels and those of other seafaring men from New England and found and purchased Claverack Landing. Tradition has it that, in the good Quaker community that was early Hudson, Thomas Jenkins was considered to be 'somewhat aristocratic' and was roundly criticized for the ostentation of his palatial home.In her Colonial Restoration and Old Upper Hudson Walking Tours, first published in 1984, Mrs. Granvil Hills tells us that 'the house was later divided into 2 dwellings.' It is definitely two dwellings today, but it is not entirely clear when the division happened. In 1848, more than half a century after it was built, the house became a school for young ladies. What Anna Bradbury has to say about the school in her History of the City of Hudson suggests that it had already been divided at that point.In 1848 the Misses Peake established a 'Young Ladies Seminary,' that for more than thirty years attracted the patronage of the best people of the city and vicinity. It was located at Number 216 Warren street with a fine schoolroom in the adjoining dwelling. Miss Elizabeth Peake, the head of the institution, was a person of superior mind and culture, and was the author of two very excellent books, one 'Pen Pictures of Europe,' and the other a 'History of the German Emperors,' which necessitated research in the great libraries of Germany, and exhibited great ability.In 1881, George Power, who owned the New York and Hudson Steamboat Company, the Hudson and Athens Ferry, and the Hudson and Catskill Ferry,This grand Federal style house at 216-220 Warren Street was originally built, probably in the last decade of the 18th century, for Thomas Jenkins, who is believed to have been the richest of the original Proprietors.

Power was probably, in his time, one of the richest men in Hudson, and, according to the 1880 census, his household consisted of six adults besides himself--his wife, Adeline; four grown children, Emily (40), Ada (24), Kate (22), and Frank (18); and his widowed sister Mary Gaul--so it's hard to imagine that he would move from a building of such considerable size to half a house on Warren Street. Power seemed to have had a curious penchant--perhaps because there were so many women in his household--for living in buildings that had been occupied by schools for young women. Before he bought 400 State Street and made it his home, the building had been the Reverend J. B. Hague's Hudson Female Academy, and he moved to this house on Warren Street soon after it ceased being the Misses Peake's Young Ladies Seminary. In 1894, all or part of 216-220 Warren Street became the Howard Hotel, and so it remained until 1944. Some time after the Howard Hotel closed in 1944, the building where Savoia is now located was added, and a bar opened there named for Hudson's most notorious home-based industry. The building that started out as the grandest house in Hudson went through hard times in the 1980s and 1990s, but today, at more than two hundred years of age, it survives and thrives, although clearly as two separate and distinct parts.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this apartment offer coffee/tea makers and irons/ironing boards. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include showers.

Beautiful!
This apartment is more beautiful than the photos, and is centered in a perfect downtown Hudson location. Fabrice was helpful and really nice to work with. I highly recommend it!

5/5 Excellent

Great location
Very comfortable property with attention given to detail. Very clean, well equipped kitchen (with ice maker) and bathroom (with hair dryer), comfortable bed, large collection of books and tasteful decor. Access to laundry in the basement is nice. The most beautiful features of the property are the windows which allow for lots of light throughout the space, a view of the street and beautiful trees. Would like to return some day.

5/5 Excellent

Charming and comfortable!
We stayed 2 nights in this lovely apartment and enjoyed our time here immensely. This home is a great blend of old and new. The character of the place is undeniable and so in line with the town of Hudson itself and with the surrounding area. Our experience here was so much better than a sterile hotel stay would have been. I'm glad we made this choice. The interior space is updated but not too much; perfect really. The bed was comfortable and we had no trouble with street noise. It's quiet at night. Everything works great including the wifi, TV, & appliances in the apartment and the washer and dryer in the basement ($1.50 each; coin operated). I absolutely loved being able to step out of the apartment and right into in the historic downtown area. There are many interesting sights nearby as well as coffee shops, small grocery stores, and boutique stores--all within a short walk. The owner/property manager was excellent at providing instructions and getting back to us with speedy, helpful replies. Check in and check out was a breeze. Would definitely stay here again.
