Welcome To The Millbrook Inn! An Incredible Oasis In New York’s Hudson Valley!

Welcome To The Millbrook Inn!

My wife Alex and I love to travel, and when our close friend Yvette Fromer opened this gorgeous Inn recently, we knew we’d have to visit!

As her terrific website notes:

“In a building over 100 years old, set on a country road dotted with lush farmland and grazing horses, you will find The Millbrook Inn: our serene retreat located in the heart of the Hudson Valley.”

The Hudson Valley is famous for its natural beauty – a perfect escape from the fast-paced world.

Yvette purchased the property in 2019 and spent the past two years renovating the nine guest suites and expanding the Inn.

Stay In “The Henry!”

Here’s a look at “The Henry”, also known as room #8, a beautiful room that is not only luxurious but comfortable as well!

The Millbrook Inn is located in New York’s famous Hudson Valley, an historic farming community, with beautiful dairy, produce, and cattle farms dotting the countryside.

As the Inn describes the area:

“It’s a celebrated equestrian community, with deep-rooted annual events that draw people from around the world. It has a vibrant arts scene and revived crafts industry. It is filled with vineyards, breweries, distilleries, and has a thriving farm-to-table food scene. The Millbrook Inn is the perfect place to call home while you enjoy all this rich valley has to offer you.”

The Millbrook Inn just received a rave review – including a great article about the head Chef!

Yvette hired Chef Zac Olson to create a menu that would match her vision of the Inn.

And what a match it is! Check out this breakfast dish!

Here’s what the review said:

“Olson could add a lot more value to the project than simply being a sounding board for the design of a commercial kitchen, staffing questions, and advice on budgeting. He came of age in Hudson Valley restaurant kitchens as the farm-to-table movement was dawning, with a culinary ethos deeply rooted in a sense of place. So Fromer brought him on full-time to helm the kitchen he had helped design. “

“Yvette’s whole thing is ‘country inn, reimagined’—American traditional with a bit of a twist,” says Olson, who has applied himself interpreting the design edict from a food perspective. “So we’re using the finest products you can find locally.” He started with a 30-mile sourcing radius, but that quickly shrank as neighboring meat and produce farmers began knocking on the kitchen door.

The Millbrook Inn Burger!

Now, let’s get to the food! Local ingredients show up in all of the dishes, like their incredible burger – stuffed with all local ingredients…as the article noted:

“I am shocked at the abundance of stuff farmers have been bringing me,” Olson says. “We’ve honed in to a 10- to 15-mile radius for 75 percent of our goods.”

This is local Salmon Trout Tartar – the dishes are works of culinary art, and you can see the Inn’s rave review here:


Bravo Yvette! Bravo Chef Olson!

Alex and I look forward to visiting as soon as we can, and when we do, we plan to start with this drink:

How about this combo: carrot juice, orange juice, tequila and cardamom syrup! It’s called the #7 because room seven is rabbit themed!

Finally, one more delicious reason to visit:

“3 Beet Pasta With Lemon Ricotta!”

We cannot wait to try all of the dishes on the menu, and to relax and enjoy the Inn as well!

I’ve never been to the Hudson Valley, but The Millbrook Inn newsletter shows you all of the terrific events going on in the region and they are so tempting! You can sign up for their newsletter and get all the info on upcoming events by clicking here:


One last reason to visit – if you mention “Alex and John”, Yvette will pour you a glass of wine to welcome you!

I also love that it’s just a few hours from one of the greatest cities in the world:

I love New York, especially when I can walk 196 blocks through it!

  7. That looks like a wonderful (though I am guessing very expensive) place to stay, John. The food and rooms seem to be worth the expense though.
