Country Farm Inn - Best Place to Stay in Chatham
Tucked away in the sweet spot where the Hudson Valley meets the beautiful Berkshire foothills, the Inn at Silver Maple Farm is one of the premiere bed and breakfasts in upper Columbia County in upstate New York.
We offer eleven well-appointed guest rooms, each with its own private bathroom. Newly remodeled with a fresh Euro pastoral color palette and weathered patinas, our guests are transported to a rustic countryside retreat.
Our spacious post and beam Inn creates an aura of timelessness as you enjoy all that a country get-away is meant to be. Fine dining, art, music, dance, wineries, and beautiful countryside strolls await you.
The Inn at Silver Maple Farm offers eleven beautiful guest rooms decorated in elevated pastoral style. There are a variety of options from two story suites to generously sized guest rooms off the Great Room in the main house.
A complimentary continental breakfast of fresh, local baked goods, fruit, and coffee is served daily from 8am-9:30am in the Great Room. You can also opt for our daily hot breakfast which varies from quiches to pancakes, depending on the availability of local ingredients and our Innkeeper's whims.
Tea + Coffee
Enjoy our 24-hour complimentary tea and coffee bar, water, mini fridge and microwave access conveniently located in our butler's pantry off the Great Room.
Silver Maple Farm is located where the Hudson Valley meets the beautiful Berkshire foothills! Our grounds include acres of land to explore, a seasonal fire pit outside of the red barn, and a beautiful garden. Our namesake, the Silver Maple, is native to Upstate New York and prevalent in the forest surrounding our property.
In response to the pandemic, we are fully sterilizing rooms in between guests, rather than offering housekeeping during your stay. We are committed to providing you with an environment that aligns with expert protocols for a safe stay.
During frostier months, sit by the fire in our Great Room, borrow one of our hand-selected tomes to read, or play a game with friends at a French Patisserie table. Designed with our guests in mind, our Great Room offers several types of comfortable seating and is surrounded by windows overlooking our beautiful grounds.
We allow pets in two of our rooms that have their own dedicated entrance for the safety and convenience of our guests.
If you would like to bring your fur baby along on your trip, please specify so we reserve the appropriate room for you. Pets are not allowed in the main inn.
THINGS TO DO
We are located in East Chatham, just a 5 mile drive from "downtown village" of Chatham. Hudson Valley recently wrote an article about what to do when you are visiting the area, and needless to say, there is a plethora of shops and restaurants to patronize during your stay. (*They also recommend staying with us!*)
Looking for a full day or two of exploration? Drive 15 miles east to Lenox, Massachusetts and experience the cultural center of the Berkshires. From shopping to dining, art and music, historic homes and museums, exploring Lenox's offerings will keep you adventuring throughout the duration of your visit!
There is no shortage of wineries, distilleries and breweries in the area, each offering a unique perspective on the Hudson Valley scene. Ask us for recommendations or visit the closest: the Hudson Chatham Winery in Ghent, SABBA Vineyard in Old Chatham, or Chatham Brewing in Chatham.
"...a beautiful retreat from the daily grind..."
We acknowledge Silver Maple Farm was built upon Mohican (Mohhecconnuck) ancestral land.
As settlers on their indigenous homeland, we have a duty to recognize the Mohican nation as the original stewards of East Chatham and beyond. It is our hope that this land acknowledgment will help empower First Nation voices and inspire others in the community to pursue a stronger, more inclusive, and equitable future for our country.
We seek to educate ourselves while contributing to the Mohican peoples by raising awareness and learning how to be a better ally against continued colonization. To learn more about their "Many Trails" throughout history, please visit the Mohican website here or if you are guests of Silver Maple Farm, peruse our decolonized bookshelf.
