Halfway through a meal at Bartlett House, we felt the need to ask our server if there happened to be a hotel hiding on the premises. We did not want to leave. Technically this place is in Ghent, about a 15-minute drive outside of Hudson, but you should make the drive. In an old brick building with a striped-awning-covered front porch, Bartlett House is the kind of exceedingly pleasant place you picture when you start daydreaming about a weekend escape on Monday morning. They serve a big menu of French-ish farm-fresh classics, and we haven’t had a disappointing thing here. If you don’t have a car to drive to Bartlett House, the Maker Hotel on Warren Street sells bread and pastries from Bartlett House in their cafe during the day.
