History & Magic

on the Hudson

Discover nine elegant guest rooms, a historical barroom and dining room serving expertly crafted cocktails and locally sourced cuisine and a river front bar and grill with live music,  all housed in a circa 1883 hotel.

The Stewart House hotel aims to be a luxurious yet comfortable respite from City life while offering a glimpse at the history and incredible natural beauty that have played such an important part in New York and indeed American history.

Arrive by land or sea to enjoy the sunny side of the Hudson and experience a true trip back to a world that time almost forgot in our sleepy little town of Athens NY.


Guest Rooms

Renovated in 2018, our spacious guest rooms each embody their own unique style while providing a comfortable place to relax into a simpler, quieter time.  

King, queen and family friendly bedrooms are available.  In total the Stewart House can sleep up to 22 people comfortably.   

Each guest room features Sferra bedding, luxurious robes and slippers, locally made natural amenities, ensuite bathrooms, antique furniture and fine details.  

All rooms include continental breakfast featuring fresh fruit, yogurt, house-made granola, coffee and tea.  



The River Grill

What could be better than cocktails, beer, BBQ and bands on the Hudson River? Enjoy live local music, wood-fire grilled delights and a full bar all summer long. Happy Hour specials nightly.

Our new dock makes it easy to arrive by boat or simply walk over from the riverfront park or take the ferry from nearby Hudson.

It's always a good time at the River Grill!
