Hudson House River Inn is on a majestic stretch of the river, which at this juncturecourses past Storm King and the near-vertical face of Breakneck Ridge, gainingspeed as it flows into Cold Spring village before departing toward towering WestPoint and Highland Falls. If you are lucky enough to be enjoying a drink or a mealon the veranda, the river gives quite a performance.This 1830s 13-room hostelry holds a quaint steak-and-seafood house with riverviews. (Actually, at this stretch it is technically a fjord, defined as water hemmedin by v-shaped glacial cliffs.) A casual tavern offers a pub menu.
