My boyfriend and I stayed a long weekend in August, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners have done a wonderful job modernizing (great bath/bedroom fixtures, AC, custom made herbal toiletries, Sferra robes, communal breakfast area, etc...) while keeping a contemporary rustic character of the original hotel from the 1800's. The staff (Kim and Kayla) were friendly and unobtrusive.

We stayed in Room 4 with a river front view, it was charming, large, comfy, quiet, and perfect as home base for a weekend getaway from NYC. There's a lively riverfront grill, which had live music, great drinks and was host to a weekly summer live music festival. It's steps to a ferry or a 15 min drive to busier Hudson, and nearby Catskills, Kaaterskill falls, etc...Def try Bonfiglio & Sons up the street for breakfast or lunch when you stay. Thoroughly recommend, enjoy!

This amazing location, surrounded, in Athens, by so much interesting architecture from different periods of American history dating from the birth of our country, is a reminder of the trade and commerce generated by the mighty Hudson River. All different types of watercraft, from tankers to jet skis can be viewed from the comfort of a table by "The River" (Bar & Grill) or on a bench or a blanket on an adjacent, well groomed riverside park. Enchanting rooms with authentic period styling including all the amenities you'd expect at any 5 Star Hotel! Unforgettable Experience!

I stayed at Stewart House it’s opening weekend—Newly renovated, new owners. My room was spacious and comfy. Bath was great. Like everywhere in the mid Valley there’s a bit of a hipster vibe but it’s also sophisticated in good ways. Wonderful patio restaurant across the street is part of the scene.

Old building (as you would expect in Athens). Rooms are done up with a sort of contemporary-rustic vibe. Wasn't a big fan of the rough wood floors in the room. Bathroom and beds were pretty good. No central air and AC unit was having a bit of trouble keeping the temperature down.

Would recommend as a place to stay in Athens. The bar across the "street" is owned by the hotel and has nice river views and a cool hangout spot. It looks like they have some good bands play there and the park next door, although none were there this weekend.

Have stayed here three times, during different times of the year. I find the summer the best. Happy Jakes is an outdoor bar/ restaurant right across the street. The food is more than good. I recommend the bacon wrapped scallops. Heard a great live band, Lets Be Frank. Great crowd, and great service.
The rooms are always spotless, and well appointed. A nice breakfast is served in the morning. The staff is always helpful. Any concerns were immediately addressed by the manager, Kim. Great get away spot. ALSO, pet friendly. Enjoy!

Room tip: Ask for a river view
