Review: The Abbey Inn & Spa in Hudson Valley NY

The Abbey Inn & Spa hotel in Hudson Valley New York. A castle-like hotel.

There's so much to love about The Abbey Inn & Spa from it's history to its scenic hilltop location in Peekskill, New York. I discovered The Abbey while doing a thorough online search of the lower Hudson Valley for my 2023 wedding venue and immediately knew I had to visit. Not long after, I arrived to The Abbey with my fiancé and parents in tow for a quaint summer weekend at this gorgeous boutique-style hotel. From a distance, you can see how it sits high above the Hudson River.

TRENDING PLACES: Four Seasons Scottsdale for My Birthday Retreat

Four Seasons Scottsdale Casita Room and Grounds.

Turning 43 isn’t as scary as having a birthday in a snowstorm, which is why I chose to head west to Scottsdale Arizona for my birthday in January. I really can’t remember having a birthday in New York when it didn’t snow, sleet or hail. Every January, I’m prepared for it. But this year played out differently, thank God! I heard wonderful things about Four Seasons Scottsdale so my little family and I left New York City in the icy dust to experience a short retreat in the desert.
