My mother and I decided to take a spontaneous day trip to Beekman 1802 for shopping and The American Hotel for dinner in Sharon Springs. We drove from Albany, NY for this special treat. We both had a delicious meal complete with a cool historical dining vibe and wonderful service. To start, we had the seafood appetizer, and it was fresh and amazing. My mother had the coconut shrimp, and I had the steak tips which were scrumptious . We capped off our dinner with the coconut layer cake which was moist and stellar. We had refreshing Saratoga sparking waters and I had a unique Elderberry and gin drink. Again, the food was delicious and the overall dining experience was exceptional. Kelly is a great server who is cheery and wonderful. Garth, the owner was really friendly and interesting as well. We will return to this amazing restaurant~ a hidden gem!

The American Hotel is a charming inn in Sharon Springs , NY. They are open for dinner Thurs through Sunday, and for brunch on Sunday morning. The food and service are fantastic ! I have never had a bad meal here ( and I have had many) and the wait staff is warm, welcoming and competent. The owners, Doug and Garth are usually on site, and are wonderful hosts. The general manager, Austin, keeps everything moving smoothly while making everyone feel happy to be there. Today our party of 4 adults and 3 children had a delicious brunch on the beautiful patio. We each had an entree of our choice and ordered a few for the table to share. Everything was great ! The American Hotel is an oasis !

We were looking for a break in the middle of a road trip. We’d always wanted to explore the area near Cooperstown. The American Hotel popped up on Google, and we booked. The American is a beautifully restored boutique hotel, circa 1847. It boasts lovely gardens, beautifully decorated rooms, a fantastic dining room (A delicious breakfast is included in the room rate. Be sure to stay for dinner!) You can sit on a rocking chair on the porch and watch the world go slowly by or stroll along Main Street to learn about the history of Sharon Springs as a once famous health spa. There are some cute gift shops and the very elegant “mother house” of the famous Beekman 1802 goat milk soap brand. The friendly proprietors of the American Hotel and the shopkeepers are going to extraordinary lengths to ensure the health and safety of their visitors during this pandemic period. Because the nearby Glimmerglass Opera and the Baseball Hall of Fame are closed this summer, there were not many people visiting Sharon Springs. If you need a break from Quarantining, or a nice place to relax, we highly recommend the American Hotel.

First room on the left going into the place is my bedroom, they gave it to me then had 8 or so people yelling like a party around the front desk. I asked to quit and they did but please. At midnight cut the noise.

Wow! What a fantastic stay, especially on a very snowy trip. Some Cornell friends of ours recommended The American Hotel for a layover on a drive from our home in Southeastern Connecticut to Colgate for a book signing. And they were right. We actually extended our stay from 1 to 2 days with the knowledge that 9 to 12 inches of snow were expected during the trip. The Inn was so cozy, warm, and historical. My wife and I expected to see George Washington around every corner. And the owners, Doug and Garth—very cordial and kind. A young couple driving through town at the height of the storm was welcomed in by Doug with open arms. The two of them have also done such a great job restoring the structure. They had a book with before and after photos of the building. It’s just amazing what they’ve accomplished. And Austin, the general manager—thank you Austin. The rooms and dining were perfection. And the town, although tiny, also has abundant history. Doug is actually Mayor! We got into the whole Beekman Brothers 1802 story with the owners’ shop directly across the street from the Hotel. Our two days at The American and Sharon Springs were uplifting and a total breath of fresh air in times that can be downright depressing. We’ll be back. Bob and Caren L Niantic, Connecticut
