Our favourite rooms
The Sycamore Suite overlooks the garden, Dunham Creek and several namesake trees planted all the way back in 1835. For extra thinking space, ask for the Two-Bedroom Suite – its light-flooded indoor porch comes with a writing desk and a snooze-ready daybed.
The family-friendly pool is set in a secluded corner of the gardens. It’s refreshingly unheated, and open from Memorial Day (late May) to Labor Day (early September).
A notepad and pen, no matter your skill-set – they’ll be just as useful for scribbling poetry, sketching the sycamores, or recording the length of your best catch.
Ramps make it easy for wheelchair users to access all common areas, and there’s a suite with an adapted bathroom on the ground floor.
Bring your pooch for a flat fee of $100 – they'll thank you later. See more pet-friendly hotels in Upstate New York.
All ages welcome. Extra cots can be added free of charge to all rooms, except a Guest Room or a Century Lodge Grand Room. The garden lawns have plenty of space for outdoor play, and for rainy days there’s a pool table and a selection of board games.
