5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is an older style hotel with comfortable beds and clean rooms. It also is very quiet (even with all rooms full) and has a nice pool. Best by far is the owner Steele who is very knowledgeable about the area and has excellent suggestions anything from where to get breakfast to local events. He really goes out of his... More

My husband and I spent a fun weekend at the Silvanus Lodge. It's a sweet little motel set back from the road with lovely grounds and a great pool. We stayed in room #8 at the end of the building. Each room has a patio area that overlooks the pool and grounds. The rooms are small but nicely updated in... More

First if all, I want to thank everyone else who posted reviews about Silvanus Lodge. I did a lot of research before choosing where to stay in the Hudson Vally and your reviews really helped. I am so glad I stayed here, and this is why. First of all, the property is even more beautiful than the pictures convey. Everything... More

Both Silvanus AND the owner, Steele, are charming and loaded with character! The rooms are a great value -- worth much more than what we paid. Steele is very knowledgeable about the area and happy to offer maps and other information about the myriad things to do and see. The rooms are unique and very clean. The setting is lovely... More

That's it... I think Trip Advisor should create a way to "rate" guests. Some are just better than others. THIS one is a FIVE-STAR! Thanks, and you are always welcome here! More

My husband and I were looking for a home in Columbia County. We stayed at Silvanus Lodge twice during our search - the first time due to location and the second time due to the owner, Steele. Both trips were during the winter months. Nothing beat coming back to our warm, cozy room at the end of a long day... More

Silvanus lodge captures a simpler time in history. This Lodge has a strong avante garde feeling. Easy to find and located close to dining that offers natural food you will love the quaintness and personal touch that this lodge owner offers. Steele, the owner/operator went above and beyond in terms of acquainting us to the area. Come enjoy the quiet... More

Silvanus Lodge was recommended to me by my mother, who has stayed there a number of times. I am not a fan of bed & breakfasts (too personal) nor big impersonal hotel chains. This is a lovely motel with character. I read a number of reviews, so I expected the small room. The hand painted headboards are beautiful. The beds... More

We planned or trip to Columbia County without leaving too much time for relaxing at the Lodge. The Lodge was great for that, but we realized that we were missing out. We're planning another trip so that we can enjoy it a bit more. Steele, the owner/host is a gem in his own right and he put together a gem... More

My husband and I stayed in Silvanus Lodge for one night on our way to a hiking trip in The Catskills. We liked it so much that we cut our hiking trip short and came back to spend two more nights. We enjoyed visiting and revisiting places in the area and found a couple of excellent restaurants. Silvanus however was... More

My husband and I stayed overnight at Silvanus Lodge before heading to a music festival nearby, based on my hubby's suggestion (he was a guest of the lodge years ago) and also because he liked this place. At first sight, I thought to myself it looks really, really simple on the outside. But as we got into our room, it... More
