The Silvanus is a charming little find tucked in between the Berkshires and the Hudson River Valley, close to so many wonderful places to visit. If you don't already know what to see and do, or where to eat, Steele - the charming and welcoming fellow who runs the Silvanus - will gladly to give you some pointers and make...

We were up from the city to go to a concert at Tanglewood so we booked WAY early to make sure we got a room. The owner (Steele) is great to work with and always returns calls promptly year-round. Ask him for directions if you're heading up there, he has a great quick route by-passing MA almost completely, mostly just...

Not usually one to leave a review but really feel compelled to after our recent stay here. My wife, 5 year old boy and I needed a room for three nights in this area due to my wife attending a nearby photography workshop in Ghent. Besides location we had two other requirements- cleanliness and a pool. Internet research kept pointing...

We had driven by so many times, and finally had occasion to spend a night. What a gem! Relaxing patio overlooking the huge yard. The nice pool was a great respite on a very hot day. Steele is so accommodating and has done a tremendous job with the motel. There are funny and interesting things around (like on the back...

Once again we stayed at the Silvanus. Steele continues to provide clean, quiet, affordable lodging. Steele still makes you feel like you have just come home. Coffee and Internet in the lobby. Close to dining and groceries. Also just a few miles up the road from Copake Auction in Copake Falls, New York.

We had room 3, two double beds. Tight space but sufficient for sleeping which was all we needed it for. The host, Steele, is quite helpful and friendly. Breakfast at O's Hillsdale Diner, just across the intersection of Rt 23, maybe a half mile from the lodge.

My husband and I have been going to Columbia County for a couple of months now exploring the area every weekend. Silvanus was recommended to us by a friend who stayed there. We immediately loved it. Steele, the owner was so welcoming, open, extremely generous and very informative. We even have our favourite room there... The rooms are clean and...

If you're looking for a terrific place to stay while traveling in Columbia County or the southern Berkshires, look no further than the Silvanus Lodge. We have stayed at the property many times over the years and our encounters have always been positive. Since taking over the Silvanus, Steele has performed most of the renovations himself, and his pride of...

We were a family of 5 (kids aged 1.5, 4.5, 6), so we took the family room. When the beds are open it's a bit crowded, but that was the only problem. The host was really friendly, the room was comfortable, the swimming pool was fun, and in the morning there were geese on the lawn... Oh, it didn't have...

I've stayed several times at Silvanus Lodge. Every experience was great. It's rather unique, very peaceful, clean, and in a great little town, surrounded by places to visit and things to do. Steele, the proprietor, is always happy to see me, is quite responsive if I need something, and is very friendly. I've also enjoyed the other guests, one of...
