Nestled in the Hudson River Valley, our hotels in Fishkill are ideally situated for exploring the area's rich historic and natural wonders. Tour mansions from the Gilded Age and see stunning valley vistas from mountain trails.
Get a taste of turn-of-the-century grandeur at the Vanderbilt Mansion Historic Site, a short drive from our Fishkill hotels in Hyde Park. Elaborately carved wooden ceilings and luxurious tapestries adorn this 54-room country manor. You'll need a ticket to tour the mansion, but there's no charge to explore the formal gardens and meandering carriage trails on the sprawling estate on the banks of the Hudson River. Head south from our hotels in Fishkill to Beacon, home of the celebrated Dia:Beacon contemporary arts museum. Housed in a former Nabisco factory, this massive, sun-drenched space celebrates the work of some two dozen minimalist and conceptual artists. Look for works by Andy Warhol and the mischievous Bruce Nauman, whose creepy recording of rats on the prowl is housed in the museum's basement.
Pause for an ice cream cone in Beacon before heading to Hudson Highlands State Park for a 4-mile hike through deep woods to the summit of Mt. Taurus. You'll be rewarded with sublime Hudson River Valley views. Or spend a leisurely day hunting for treasures in antique stores in pretty Cold Spring, a short drive south of our Fishkill hotels. Friendly waitstaff at historic taverns serve hearty soups and juicy burgers, paired with frosty mugs of ale. Cross the Hudson to Newburgh's waterfront bars for some of the area's best nightlife.
Stay at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Fishkill in spring when the formal gardens of the grand estates are in full bloom. Come in autumn to see the entire valley gloriously ablaze in fall colors.
