Silvanus lodge captures a simpler time in history. This Lodge has a strong avante garde feeling. Easy to find and located close to dining that offers natural food you will love the quaintness and personal touch that this lodge owner offers. Steele, the owner/operator went above and beyond in terms of acquainting us to the area. Come enjoy the quiet and good conversation when you find yourself in the area!

Silvanus Lodge was recommended to me by my mother, who has stayed there a number of times. I am not a fan of bed & breakfasts (too personal) nor big impersonal hotel chains. This is a lovely motel with character. I read a number of reviews, so I expected the small room. The hand painted headboards are beautiful. The beds are not luxurious, but are very comfortable. There was plenty of hot water. The room was nice and warm on some very chilly nights. Steele is a gracious host and very knowledgeable about the area. I am looking forward to a return visit and will definitely recommend this place to my friends.

We planned or trip to Columbia County without leaving too much time for relaxing at the Lodge. The Lodge was great for that, but we realized that we were missing out. We're planning another trip so that we can enjoy it a bit more. Steele, the owner/host is a gem in his own right and he put together a gem of a motel in beautiful upstate NY. A few highlights: we had a race early Sunday morning and realized late Saturday that a crucial piece of equipment was left at home. Leave it to say that Steele saved the day. He also made sure coffee was ready for our very early stay and was flexible about checkout so an after race shower was no problem. The chairs on the deck, the grill on the pergola and the nicely renovated lobby all offer great places to enjoy the quiet and the air. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I stayed in Silvanus Lodge for one night on our way to a hiking trip in The Catskills. We liked it so much that we cut our hiking trip short and came back to spend two more nights.
We enjoyed visiting and revisiting places in the area and found a couple of excellent restaurants. Silvanus however was the real gem: peaceful, comfortable and very well run by Steele who we enjoyed chatting with several times during our visit.
We want to make a trip to Silvanus a regular occurrence whenever we need a little get away.

My husband and I stayed overnight at Silvanus Lodge before heading to a music festival nearby, based on my hubby's suggestion (he was a guest of the lodge years ago) and also because he liked this place. At first sight, I thought to myself it looks really, really simple on the outside. But as we got into our room, it was very cozy. Also admired the contemporary decòr. Loved the view from our room, it really looks peaceful & serene. It has an outdoor pool, but it was too chilly for us to swim that time. The owner, Steele, is a very accomodating, hardworking, & professional man. He made it possible for us to have a comfy stay, and even gave us helpful tips (and a map that we kept as a souvenir) around the area and how to get to the Falls. Just FYI: there's no coffeemaker & fridge in the room (which is no issue for us since there's free coffee available at the lobby). So if u need a quick stopover or an overnight place to stay in Hillsdale, THIS is the place to go. Will definitely stay here again :)

Of course we LOVE reviews like this. Other guests need to know what to expect, and it feels good when our guests point out the cold-hard facts. And it helps that you enjoyed your stay. Please, please come back.
