Athens hotel & Bistro At The Stewart House

Built in 1883, the Stewart House is located in Athens, New York right on the Hudson River. It has a spectacular setting with a full view of Mt. Merino and the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse. It has been run as a restaurant and hotel since it opened 127 years ago. Currently under new management, the Stewart House is open and running smoothly with Mary DiStefano and Dana Wegener (aka "Mo & D" of MOD Cafe in Catskill) cooking in the kitchen. 

Using ingredients from local farms and providers, Mary and Dana have created an exciting menu of home-cooked, comforting favorites (Mary’s meatloaf is already a satisfying staple with regulars). The tastes are without pretense, yet full of amazing flavors. Prices are reasonable.

Mary, Dana, and crew will provide you a memorable experience. All current MOD customers in Catskill can attest to their consistency and good food and great vibes. So now you and your family and friends can come to the Stewart House and celebrate an auspicious occasion (e.g., a birthday, an anniversary or a wedding party) or a casual night out by the river enjoying its garden menu or a great glass of wine with mussels at the Art Deco bar in the main dining room. Whatever your dining needs (a family fete, a large get-together or a cozy late night snack), the Stewart House can accommodate you in comfort and style. Mary and Dana are what’s new in the Stewart House in Athens and they look forward to many years of serving you with a smile.

Stewart House is located at 2 Second Street, Athens. For more information call 945.1357 or visit
