This space is such a hidden gem on the other side of Hudson. The outdoor bar and restaurant is fun on the weekends and of course they are always booking amazing music, thanks to the owner's history and connections in the business. This is photo shoot worthy backdrops in the rooms and downstairs spaces. If you were shooting a film or needed an amazing destination, this place would be great to take over the space.

We can't speak to the hotel part of their business as we came for dinner only upon a recommendation. The only choice of where to eat was outside in a pavilion area beside the Hudson River. That was special. However I found myself getting up to actually flag down a server as we were sitting around a little too long without attention. The problem there is that the outdoor grill area on site was too small and not adequately staffed to handle the large number of people seated at once with all the available tables. The food comes out slowly and service becomes slow. We finally got our food which was good but nothing remarkable. This was not a fine dining experience which we were led to believe.

After reading trip advisor reviews, we knew we would find the innkeeper at the The River, their outdoor restaurant across the street from the Stewart House. We had a great lunch (steamed clams, kielbasa and brushetta) there while enjoying the swaying willow trees, the lake and the lively atmosphere. Innkeeper, Kim (and hostess at The River) walked us across the street to the Inn to Room #8....most beautiful and well appointed B&B room we have ever stayed in!!!! Lovingly restored, beautiful view of the river, amazing tub, comfy bed, robes, slippers, wet bar (very unique) incredible lighting, upscale toiletries and so much more!! The Stewart house had a full make over in 2018, minimal and beautiful. A comfy place, not fussy and overbearing. Staff friendly and very accomodating. Loved the little communal breakfast on the second floor. Have never had such amazing homemade granola before and the yogurt to die for. They did everything right. Can't wait to return!!

Room tip: You have to stay in Room 8!

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!
