Country Living Hudson Mattress Overview
Country Living’s new Welcome Home Collection includes three mattresses ranging from the slightly more basic Country Living McKinney mattress to the high-end Napa mattress. The Hudson mattress is right in the middle. It is a hybrid mattress that’s made with high-quality materials and is designed to sleep cool.

We’re talking about the Medium model here.
The Welcome Home Collection is designed to help sleepers feel like they’re spending a weekend in the country (no matter where they actually live). The mattresses are made in the USA.

Country Living Hudson Mattress Firmness And Feel
Once you understand the firmness and feel of the Country Living Hudson, you’ll start to determine whether this mattress might be a good fit for your sleep position(s) and other preferences. Let’s dive in!
How Firm Is The Country Living Hudson?
We ranked the Medium model of the Country Living Hudson around 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. The industry standard for average firmness is 6.5/10, so this suggests the Medium version of the Hudson is a bit softer-than-average. It has plush layers right on top, which contributes to its softer feel.
Note that firmness is slightly subjective. Your body weight and personal preferences might mean that you rank this mattress slightly firmer or softer.
Sleeping On The Country Living Hudson
We found the Hudson mattress to be a great match for back sleeping. Our hips sank in just a touch for some pleasant pressure relief, while the zoning offered nice lumbar support.
We also felt great while side sleeping on the Hudson. We experienced great pressure relief around the shoulder and hip, which are common hot spots for side sleepers.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Hudson felt too soft for stomach sleeping. Our hips sank too far into the mattress and tugged the spine out of alignment. People who prefer this position will want to seek out a mattress for stomach sleepers.
What Does The Country Living Hudson Feel Like?
The Country Living Hudson has a plush, responsive hybrid mattress feel. The plush layers on top offer nice pressure relief, while the coils provide good bounce. Thanks to the responsive coils, it’s easy to move around on this bed.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130lbs – 230lbs
Average-weight back sleepers should enjoy a balance of comfort and support on the Country Living Hudson. Average-weight side sleepers should appreciate the great pressure relief on this plush mattress. Average-weight stomach sleepers will not get enough support on most models of the Hudson, but they could enjoy the Firm model.
Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230lbs
Heavyweight back sleepers who weigh less than 275 pounds should find the Hudson mattress to be a good fit, while folks who weigh more than that will probably require a more supportive mattress. Similarly, heavyweight side sleepers who weigh less than 275 pounds should enjoy great pressure relief, while folks who weigh more than that might need a mattress made for heavy people. Heavyweight stomach sleepers will not get enough support on the Medium model of the Hudson; they might fare better on the Firm model.
Lightweight SLeepers – Under 130lbs
Across the board, lightweight sleepers will likely appreciate the Country Living Hudson. Lightweight back and side sleepers will enjoy plenty of pressure relief as well as spinal support. Lightweight stomach sleepers could even obtain enough spinal support on the Medium model.
Country Living Hudson Mattress Construction
Now that you have a sense of what it feels like to sleep on top of the Hudson mattress, let’s pop the hood (or cover) on this bed and take a look inside! We’ll reveal each layer of the Hudson’s construction and share how its materials affect the bed’s performance and feel.
The Country Living Hudson mattress features a quilted, cooling cover that’s made with advanced, super-cooling fabric. The surface of this mattress shouldn’t sleep hot.
The Hudson’s comfort layers start out right on top of the mattress thanks to the cover, which is tufted and quilted with contouring foam. Beneath the plush cover, there’s a 2” layer of copper-infused memory foam. The memory foam offers body contouring and pressure relief, while the copper infusion helps with cooling. Finally, there’s a 1” transition layer made from high-density polyfoam.
The primary support layer on the Hudson mattress consists of a coil system that’s made from 8” of individually-wrapped coils. These coils are zoned to provide extra support near the center of the mattress. They rest on a thin layer of base support foam, which provides structure for the mattress overall.
The Country Living Hudson mattress is 14” tall.

Country Living Hudson Mattress Performance
We ran the Country Living Hudson mattress through a barrage of tests to assess its performance with regard to temperature regulation, motion transfer, durability, edge support, and more. Let’s see how it did!
Sleeping Hot Or Cold
The Hudson mattress features several design features that keep it sleeping cool. These include a cooling cover, a copper infusion in the memory foam layer, and coils, which allow for plenty of airflow throughout the center of the mattress.
Bottom line? This bed should be a good match for folks who are worried about sleeping hot.
Even though it has memory foam on top, the Hudson is a pretty bouncy mattress, which means it doesn’t perform the best when it comes to motion transfer. It’s possible that sleep partners could feel each other’s movements traveling across the surface of the mattress.
We found the edge support on the Country Living Hudson to be quite decent. We felt pretty secure while sitting and lying down near the edges of the mattress. This also means that sleepers should be able to utilize the full surface of the bed.
The Country Living Hudson mattress is made with high-density materials and sturdy coils, which make this a durable mattress. Given proper care, the Hudson should last for between 7 and 10 years. This should be a good long-term investment.
We did observe a bit of initial off-gassing from the Hudson mattress. This should dissipate within a couple of days.
At the time of our review, we didn’t observe any notable noise from the Hudson mattress. Because it contains coils, it’s possible the coils might start to squeak a bit after years of use.
The Hudson is a fairly bouncy mattress, which means it should be a good mattress for sexual partners. It’s easy to move around and change positions on this bed.

How Does The Country Living Hudson Compare To Other Mattresses?
Since the Country Living Hudson is a newer mattress, you might be wondering how it compares to more established beds in the online mattress market. We’ve done the comparison shopping for you by pitting the Hudson against two of its main competitors: the Casper mattress and the Purple mattress.
Country Living Hudson Vs. Casper Mattress
The Hudson and Casper Original are quite different when it comes to their constructions and materials. The Hudson is a hybrid mattress with many layers and several cooling design features. The Casper is an all-foam bed with a much simpler construction. (It does come in a hybrid version as well.) One similarity? Both beds feature a zoned construction that offers extra lumbar support.
When it comes to firmness, the Hudson offers three firmness options while the Casper comes in only one firmness. We ranked the Medium version of the Hudson around 6/10 (a bit softer-than-average), and we ranked the all-foam Casper around 7/10 (a bit firmer-than-average).
These beds also differ in terms of feel. The Hudson has a plush, responsive hybrid feel, while the Casper has a balanced foam feel. Both beds are fairly responsive, but the Hudson has more bounce thanks to its coil system.
Finally, these mattresses are also different in price. A Queen-size Hudson starts around $1,623, while the same size (all-foam) Casper costs less at a starting price of around $1,095.
Who Should Choose The Hudson?
- Side sleepers
- People who want to choose from multiple firmness options
Who Should Choose The Casper?
- People who want to save money
- Fans of all-foam mattresses

Country Living Hudson Vs Purple Mattress
The Country Living Hudson and the Purple mattress have very different constructions. The Hudson is a hybrid mattress with a plush top and coils, while the Purple uses foam as well as a unique, hyper-elastic polymer gel grid.
The Purple Grid gives the Purple a very unique feel; it feels a bit like gel that’s simultaneously squishy and firm, and the grid creates a temperature-neutral sleep surface. The Hudson has more of a classic hybrid feel with plenty of plushness on top.
Given that they have different feels, it’s probably not surprising that the Hudson and Purple differ a bit in terms of firmness. We ranked the Hudson around 6/10 (a bit softer than average) and we ranked the Purple around 6.5 (right around medium-firm).
Finally, these beds come in at different price points. A Queen-size Hudson starts around $1,600, while the same size Purple costs less at a starting price of around $1,199.
Who Should Get The Hudson?
- People who want a more substantial mattress
- Side sleepers
Who Should Get The Purple?
- People who are looking to save some money
- Hot sleepers who want a temperature-neutral mattress
- Stomach sleepers
