Rollaway beds cannot be added to luxury tents with two single beds.

There are many family-friendly outdoor activities, including hiking, educational walking tours, and excursions to historical sites such as Olana and the FDR Presidential Library. For children under 12, we can add up to two rollaway beds (for luxury tent reservations only) to a luxury tent with king bed for an additional $100 per bed per night.
Can I bring my pet?
For an additional $50 per pet, dogs on-leash and under 50 lbs are welcome at Collective Hudson Valley, with the expectation that they are trained and well-behaved. If you plan to travel with your pet, please include a note in your reservation so we can prepare appropriately.
What are the bathrooms like?
Each luxury tent is connected via private walkway to your own custom-designed bathroom. The bathrooms are housed in adjoined canvas tents, with full-flush toilets, rain-style hot showers, and beautiful sink and vanity spaces. There are thick Turkish towels and robes in the tent, as well as environmentally friendly luxury bath amenities in the bathroom.
Are there bugs and wildlife?
The tents are outdoors, so we cannot guarantee you won’t see any bugs. However, we do have bug foggers available upon request, which help minimize the chance of insect encounters. The safety of our guests and team is our top priority, and our staff will educate you on our safety guidelines and practices when you arrive should you encounter any wildlife. Collective Retreats also does pest control on a frequent basis.
What will the weather be like?
Hudson Valley weather can be unpredictable at times but springtime generally brings warm temperatures with bright blue skies during the day and cooler evenings. It can be humid if there is a rainstorm on the way, but we provide fans in the tents on hot days, and with the rain comes pleasant temperatures. In the fall, it can be chilly during the day and at night, especially later in the season. The tents stay warm with the wood-burning stove and plush down comforter on the bed. We recommend checking the forecast for Ghent, NY, prior to your arrival and bringing waterproof footwear and warm outer layers to account for potential swings in temperature and precipitation. We’ll also send you a packing list prior to your arrival.
How do I get to Collective Hudson Valley?
We’re located an easy 15-minute drive from Hudson and just 2 hours from New York City. We’ve included these simple step-by-step directions to make your arrival a breeze.
Will there be anyone at the retreat to help me?
Yes, our retreat team is on location and available 24/7. We’re here to make your stay more enjoyable, so please don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know what we can do to improve your experience.
What is the alcohol policy?
Although we do not sell, distribute or pour any alcohol at Collective Hudson Valley, guests ages 21+ are welcome to bring their own alcohol.
When should I book?
Because space at Collective Hudson Valley is limited, we suggest you book at least 3 months in advance—or more if you are looking to visit on a holiday weekend or peak time. Our reservations team is always available to help answer any questions prior to booking, or look into availability for you. Please contact us if you are interested in staying at Collective Retreats, but need more information prior to booking. You can reach our reservations department by phone at 970-445-2033 or email@example.com.
How long should I stay?
Most of our guests choose to stay for 3-4 nights, but we welcome you to stay as long as you’d like! Our concierge can help design a customized trip for you at any length of stay. Please note, we have a 2-night minimum stay for standard weekends and a 3-night minimum stay for holiday weekends.
What time is check-in and checkout?
Check-in is at 2 p.m. and checkout is at 11 a.m. Check-outs later than 11 a.m. will be charged for an additional night. Our concierge team will be in touch close to your arrival date to confirm your arrival time.
What time of year should I visit?
Collective Hudson Valley is open annually for six months of the year, May-October. There are benefits to all parts of the season, depending on what you’re looking for.
What should I pack?
We furnish our tents with plenty of creature comforts, including games, books, and luxury bath amenities. After you book, we’ll be in touch with a Guide to Collective that includes suggestions on what to pack. Some of the important items for spring and fall include warm outer layers and waterproof footwear. The weather can vary, so you will be much more comfortable if you are prepared with the appropriate clothing and footwear. In general, the weather is gorgeous, but it’s always good to pack the right items. We suggest checking the weather a day or two prior to your arrival. Also, don’t forget your camera, travel journal, a hat, sunscreen and a good book to read while you enjoy your morning coffee.
How many tents are there?
Each retreat is unique and ranges in size, but all are designed to provide you with a peaceful, intimate getaway. The tents are located approximately 100-150 feet apart to allow for a relaxing stay for you and your fellow guests. While we encourage you to meet the other guests at our evening campfire, this is your experience and you can choose to interact as much or as little as you’d like with our staff and guests.
What are the dining options?
Your stay includes a daily complimentary full breakfast daily at our Three Peaks Lodge, featuring a wide range of dishes, from hearty omelettes and pancakes to wellness-focused options like yogurt and homemade granola.
For lunch and dinner, we have a variety of options available for booking prior to your arrival. For lunch, we offer picnic boxes that include your selection of salad or sandwich, fruit, and a sweet treat. For dinner, we offer a Farm to Table, which is served under the stars and features a gourmet three-course menu of seasonal local dishes. Alternately, you can select the more casual BBQ-in-a-Box option, which comes with everything you need for a cookout, including beverages, sides, your selection of main course, as well as grilling directions and accouterments.
We request that all lunch and dinner reservations are made at least 48 hours prior to arrival to ensure availability. Our team is happy to help you make your choices and confirm your reservations—please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
