Waterfront Lodging & Dining. The Stewart House is an idyllic waterfront escape with magnificent views of the Hudson River, a vibrant local culture, and modern hospitality. Steeped in history and located just two hours from New York City, guests have been warmly welcomed since 1883. The Italianate-style boarding house turned boutique hotel has been meticulously restored with a fresh perspective, striking a balance between luxury and comfort. An Art Deco bar, farm-to-table tavern, and waterfront grill complement nine elegantly appointed guest rooms. Framed by majestic willow trees, this architectural gem graces the riverfront in Athens, NY, a quaint valley town just minutes from Hudson and Catskill. Join us and discover a haven of modern amenities and quiet charm in a setting that has anchored our local community for generations.
