An Historic Inn & Tavern

Timeless Magic on the Hudson River

At the heart of the Hudson Valley—nestled in Athens, NY, just north of the town of Catskill and directly across the river from the city of Hudson—discover a luxurious and intimate place out of a time long ago.

A modern take on traditional hospitality, we feature nine elegant guest rooms and two restaurants - the ca. 1883 Tavern and the River Grill, all meticulously restored by owners Lois and Lon Ballinger.

By land or sea, enjoy a complete respite from your busy day-to-day schedule immersed in the history and incredible natural beauty that have been central to both New York state and American history, culture, and leisure for hundreds of years.


Relax in our luxurious bedding, robes and slippers and custom amenities. Continental breakfast included.
