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 across the river from the city of Hudson—discover a luxurious and intimate place out of time.

A modern take on traditional hospitality, we feature nine elegant guest rooms and two restaurants, the ca. 1883 tavern and River Grill, riverfront bar and 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, custom amenities, and full size tubs.


Summer cocktails, craft beer, and bbq on the bank of the Hudson River.


Local comfort food made distinctly with a modern twist.


Enjoy our weekly guest artists … or book us for your own private gathering.


From the Catskills to the Berkshires and the River in between.
