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

Of course we LOVE reviews like this. Other guests need to know what to expect, and it feels good when our guests point out the cold-hard facts. And it helps that you enjoyed your stay. Please, please come back. More

Nothing cookie-cutter here! This lovingly restored mid-century small motel sparkles with cleanliness, comfort, creativity, and charm! Sure, the rooms are small compared to current expectations, but your room opens onto a massive, private field, outdoor pool, patio chairs and hanging flowers! Sip your morning coffee or tea in real mugs and you plan you visit to plentiful sites of the... More

THANK YOU... you have many reviews; your comments count for a lot! We love "positive" guests - so much easier to please!!! Best of all, thanks for recognizing the "value". We think it is still pretty expensive to be here, but we are pretty good for the area. The goal is to have someone leave feeling like they got what... More

We stayed here for three nights in mid august. We were so happy to find this place. The lodge is run by its owner, a trully nice guy named Steele. We loved the room, the view, the peacefulness, the town, the bed, the early morning coffee, the TV, the small details like a huge bottle of water for 75 cents,... More

Okay, my goal is to visit Puerto Rico within the next six months, visit your business there, and be the perfect guest - just as the two of you were. Then I'll come back and write up that perfect TA review as you have. If only all the world was so wonderful! Thank you, and I hope you come back... More

Silvanus Lodge is reasonable, very clean, appealingly decorated, and in a perfect location-- green and quiet, as well as geographically central to the Berkshires and Columbia County attractions. We were very happy with everything-- and I should note that the owner kindly stayed up to let us in when we arrived much later than anticipated. Would happily stay here again.

As it was nice having you here as well. Thank you for posting on Trip Advisor. The money is nice... but the kind words go a long, long way. Kind of makes up for those days that start at 4 a.m. and end at midnight. :) Please... come again, even late. Steele More
