About Brigitte Gfeller

I love to create, especially beautiful, comfortable living spaces. My life has been enriched by many cultures, moving to different countries, while raising three amazing kids mostly by myself.

My motto is: you can always reinvent yourself while staying true to your core....I have done it many times, and hope this is what my kids learned most from me aside from being kind, honest, compassionate, loving and seeking always the best in everyone and everything.

Brigitte Gfeller purchased this apartment in 2014

Hudson hideaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great and Brigitte is a tremendous host! We came for Thanksgiving and were able to walk everywhere (just a few blocks from the train) and eat and shop and relax. The apt has everything you need including tons of style and charm.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 days in this lovely apartment, and we loved every inch of it. It is beautifully styled (exactly what you see in the photos), and very comfortable, clean and bright (and it smells great, too!). The kitchen was stocked with coffee and tea, as well as a pantry full of cooking essentials. We loved the organic soaps and shower essentials--what a nice touch! The owner, Brigitte, was wonderful, too. She was very responsive and helpful with restaurant and shopping recommendations. She lives downstairs, so we were able to speak with her several times and I'm so happy to have met her. She's a gem, warm and friendly. It was our first time to Hudson, which is an awesome little town full of shops and restaurants, and her place was the icing on the cake. We wouldn't stay anywhere else and will definitely be back!

Great apartment to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment which is furnished with a lot of taste. Beds are very comfortable, the place was very clean and had everything we needed (towels, sheets, etc). We were there for a long week-end with our 19 months old daughter and she enjoyed playing in the backyard and running up and down the hallway in the apartment. The house is well located, walking distance from the main street. We would definitely recommend this lovely place and Brigitte was very helpful.

Ms. Gfeller, the owner was very helpful throughout the rental process. Her apartment is a warm and cozy place. Is also in an excellent location, near Warren Street. Looking forward to the next visit to Hudson. Nice town indeed.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

This property was well beyond our expectations. The property was eclectic, very well appointed and extremely well kept. The outdoor garden area was a very special surprise. It was located one block away from the Hudson downtown so it was close to everything while removed from the downtown hustle and bustle. Brigitte was a gracious host and quick to help with whatever we needed during our stay.
