My husband and I have been going to Columbia County for a couple of months now exploring the area every weekend. Silvanus was recommended to us by a friend who stayed there. We immediately loved it. Steele, the owner was so welcoming, open, extremely generous and very informative. We even have our favourite room there... The rooms are clean and... More

If you're looking for a terrific place to stay while traveling in Columbia County or the southern Berkshires, look no further than the Silvanus Lodge. We have stayed at the property many times over the years and our encounters have always been positive. Since taking over the Silvanus, Steele has performed most of the renovations himself, and his pride of... More

We were a family of 5 (kids aged 1.5, 4.5, 6), so we took the family room. When the beds are open it's a bit crowded, but that was the only problem. The host was really friendly, the room was comfortable, the swimming pool was fun, and in the morning there were geese on the lawn... Oh, it didn't have... More

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

I have booked my favorite Hudson Valley vacation hotel months in advance for the upcoming Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival.

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.
