Savor French fare with New York sensibilities and sweeping lake views at The Chestnut Inn's dining venues.

A stay at The Chestnut Inn is all about life’s simple pleasures, and that includes the various dining experiences offered. The heart of this upstate New York hotel's culinary scene is its formal dining room, which plays host to an elegant, French-inspired dinner Wednesday through Sunday, as well as a weekend brunch. In the evenings, diners can savor elevated dishes, many of which are infused with a Europe-meets-New York flair, like Hudson Valley Steelhead Trout, New York Duck à l’Orange, and Chicken Pot Pie Provençal. A prime rib feast is also served every week on Friday. On the weekends, meanwhile, guests can choose from an assortment of both sweet and savory brunch options, from New York Milled Flapjacks drizzled with local maple syrup to Chestnut Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon atop a scratch-made English muffin. Other special culinary offerings at the Inn include afternoon tea and a monthly jazz supper club.

Alternatively, for those craving something a little lighter, the Inn’s waterside tavern offers cocktails with a side of sweeping lake views and dishes like salads and a cheese board. After cozying up around one of The Chestnut Inn’s firepits or drinking in the scenery from a lakeside lounge chair, more bites and beautiful vistas can be had from the 100-foot terrace that overlooks the lake or, for those who prefer to dine indoors, through the panoramic wall of windows in the Inn’s sunroom. Wherever guests decide to dine and whatever they choose to indulge in, the perfect accompaniment to any meal is a selection from the Inn’s extensive wine collection, which boasts bottles from across the United States, with a particular focus on New York, and France.
