The Stewart House

Established in 1883


From a turn-of-the-century boarding house to the preferred getaway for world-famous movie stars, the Stewart House has offered comfort and respite to travelers for more than 100 years.

Just two hours north of New York City, our vivid natural landscape now features ski resorts, golf courses, national parkland—not to mention the renowned history of art, architecture, and culture. Whether it’s traditional charm, incredible food fresh from the farm, cultural landmarks, or outdoor excursion—we have it all.


Under the majestic willow trees along the shore of the iconic Hudson River, the Stewart House hotel has had a long and storied history.

The local Catskill Mountains and the vibrant Hudson River Valley are commonly regarded as “America’s First Vacationland,” and have attracted thousands of visitors each season since the 1600's—with mountains, waterfalls, lakes, fresh air, bright night skies, stunning views, and adventure.


Under the loving guidance of owners Lon and Lois Ballinger, “The Stewie” has been fully renovated, expertly designed, and restored to its full, gorgeous, and lively potential.

Step back in time, enjoy this current renaissance, and experience the history and magic of the Hudson River. Join us for a getaway, your next special event, or simply dinner and a cocktail in our sleepy little town of Athens, NY.
