About Stewart House


established 1883

Under the majestic willow trees along the shore of the iconic Hudson River, the Stewart House hotel has had a long and storied history. From a turn of the century boarding house to the getaway for world-famous movie stars, the Stewart House has offered comfort and respite to travelers for over 100 years.

Under the loving guidance of new owners Lon and Lois Ballinger, “The Stewie” has re-opened with a new and vibrant life. Boasting nine gorgeously appointed and spacious guest rooms, The River outdoor bar and one-of-a-kind wood fired grill right on the Hudson and the spectacularly restored ca. 1883 Tavern featuring expertly crafted cocktails and locally sourced cuisine.

We have now reopened and invite you to step back in time and experience the history and magic of the Hudson River. Join us for a getaway, your next special event, or perhaps just dinner and a cocktail in the sleepy little town that time almost forgot, Athens, NY.
