I've stayed several times at Silvanus Lodge. Every experience was great. It's rather unique, very peaceful, clean, and in a great little town, surrounded by places to visit and things to do. Steele, the proprietor, is always happy to see me, is quite responsive if I need something, and is very friendly. I've also enjoyed the other guests, one of... More

I've stayed here a few times, whenever I'm in the area. The location is super and the accommodations are great. Steele, the owner couldn't be more helpful or knowledgeable about the area and goes out of his way to answer questions and meet your needs. Highly recommend!

This is a lovely retro motel with cozy, well-tended rooms and great prices. The proprietor is warm, gracious and knowledgeable about the area. The pool is a marvel -- we have stayed here several times and always seem to have it to ourselves. Wonderful on a summer evening! Just around the corner is a fantastic restaurant-- Crossroads Food Shop. I... More

Okay, stand up and take note of THIS review. It comes from one of the coolest, most interesting people I've ever, ever known. I'm deeply flattered and honored!!! I miss you, wife and children. Anxious for a visit soon. Apple picking in September? Or Leaf Peek in October. Maybe time for the kids to learn to ski this winter. Be... More

I have booked my favorite Hudson Valley vacation hotel months in advance for the upcoming Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival. Can't wait to get there and escape a while from reality and get my creative vibes recharged. I love to eat at the some of the best area restaurants, shop at the best antique Hudson shops in NY, Conn, and... More

It is so cool that you remember all this stuff! I do like to contribute to the community when I can be of use, or when I am needed. I especially like YOU, your husband, your daughter and your sons. Salt of the earth. I'm reminded of the things that count when we visit. I'm so very much looking forward... More

We have been to Silvanus a number of times, and each time have felt very much at home. We have been warmly greeted by Steele, as if we are old friends or family. We recommend Silvanus to friends and they have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is perfect for a quiet getaway off... More

What nice things you wrote!!! Thank you. Sometimes I am intimidated by you and family. You are so good to me... sometimes I feel very undeserving. It is such a treat to have people like yourself in my life. My best to your extraordinarily beautiful children... and always look forward to the next time our paths will cross. More

Mr. S., THANK YOU for taking a few minutes. I'm not so great... I found out that "great" people think the best of others. I'm glad we are facebook friends as it will be good to keep up with how you are doing. We'd love to have you hear if you sometime get a chance to visit the old stomping... More

We have been going to Silvanus for years and always a great trip to the area. Small motel with lots of country charm. The owner is always available for nice conversation about the area and what is new since last year.

Silvanus Lodge is a wonderful place to stay in the area (Berkshires, Tanglewood, Lime Rock Park, etc.). Steele, the owner, is a friendly and outgoing fellow, and is happy to provide advice on where to go and what to do in the area. My wife and I have stayed here numerous times over the years, and highly recommend it!

Dr. D., thank you for taking the time. It is deeply appreciated. While I can't always keep up with your views of life... I know they are well thought out. This makes it even nicer that you helped out. Good reviews brighten one's day... and helps to repair the damage from a few bullies! Steele More

Steele Andrews is the captain of the ship at this wonderful place. The Berkshires can be very expensive, hotels can be very overpriced. At Silvanus, you get a nice, clean room, a pool, a whole lot of quiet...it's perfect. Plus, for all of this, the price does not hurt the wallet in the least. Forget the bigger towns, stay in...

I'm always grateful for a traveler that has checked around. We think we are not cheap, but compared to the rest, we sure are a better deal. That is MY opinion, and my goal. There is no reason to take advantage of people just because you can get the money. Ask me about the one property in Great Barrington (15... More
