My wife and I were in town to attend a memorial service and I selected the Silvanus both for its location and because of the reviews. It is in a charming little hollow with woods around and green meadows. The owner, Steele, could write the book on hospitality. Everything just where you need it with charming touches abounding. We loved our three night stay. Never made it to the pool but it was very inviting.

Room Tip: Not much difference among the rooms. Any one would have been fine.

We only stayed here just one night, but would love to have had more time to enjoy the property, escpecially the pool and the patio area. The setting is a serene and welcome escape from the city. We were looking for someplace convenient to Hudson & Great Barrington as we explore the area, and the Silvanus Lodge fit the bill perfectly! Looking forward to our next visit!

After almost 2 decades of driving past the Silvanus Lodge, we finally had the occasion to stay 3 nights. Our primary goal was to relax by floating in the pool that has always looked so inviting - and is. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and we fully achieved our goal. Steele, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating, charming, and interesting. (When's the last time a hotel owner sat down for a chat with you on the patio?) The place itself is intriguing to look at from an architectural point of view, the setting is divine, and the room was totally comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. Besides enjoying the immaculate pool, just sitting on the patio and taking it all in added to the relaxation effect. We'll definitely be back and can highly recommend the Silvanus Lodge to anyone in search of a reasonably priced, lovely place to stay.

The Silvanus is a charming little find tucked in between the Berkshires and the Hudson River Valley, close to so many wonderful places to visit. If you don't already know what to see and do, or where to eat, Steele - the charming and welcoming fellow who runs the Silvanus - will gladly to give you some pointers and make some brilliant recommendations. Rooms were lovely, quiet and had great character. Hillsdale is a tranquil little place with all sorts of things on offer (and close to plenty of other places with more on offer). Can't wait to go back - thank you again Steele!

We were up from the city to go to a concert at Tanglewood so we booked WAY early to make sure we got a room. The owner (Steele) is great to work with and always returns calls promptly year-round. Ask him for directions if you're heading up there, he has a great quick route by-passing MA almost completely, mostly just 22 North.

The rooms aren't the biggest but they are very clean and give you everything you need in way of towels & toiletries. Bring a cooler--there are no fridges or microwaves but you can barbecue.

The bed was fresh & comfortable & the patio out back is fantastic, esp at night star gazing. The pool is fantastic--plenty big & deep and VERY clean.

All in all a fantastic stay, just too short...
