Celebrating our 20th Season!

serving dinner Thursday - Sunday from 5:00pm

Pub menu available

 Sunday Brunch 8am - 2pm, Sunday Afternoon Meals 11:30am - 4:00pm

Friends, while our 20th season scheduled reopening was set for Friday, April 3, we have come to realize it will not be possible for us to do so. It makes better sense for us to remain closed until you, our guests, our employees & the world feels a little more safe. We can assure you that when we do, there is going to be one serious 20th anniversary party! You will be the first to know when the lights go back on.

We love you! Please be safe & good to yourselves.

National Arbor Day Dinner (providing we have reopened), Thursday April 23, 6:00 cocktails, 6:30 DINNER

Menu: Coconut Curry Soup with Shrimp & Rice Dumplings, Hearts of Palm & Microgreens Salad, Cherry Ginger Pork Loin with Noodle Cakes, Caramelized Pineapple with Almond Ice Cream, $45 per person

Reservations: 518.284.2105




Welcome! The American Hotel was built ca. 1842 by Nicholas LaRue. After being vacant for more than 30 years, current owners Doug Plummer and Garth Roberts purchased the decaying structure in 1996. After an extensive five year renovation, the American re-opened its doors May 23, 2001. Now celebrating it's 17th season, the American Hotel has become a favorite getaway to thousands of visitors throughout the year. With a village-wide revitalization underway, Sharon Springs hosts many events throughout the year including The Garden Party, Harvest Festival, and the annual Run 4 The Hills for First Responders!



Each of our nine lovely double guest rooms feature a private bath, wi-fi, cable television and include full breakfast.

“Just came back from a fantastic stay at the American Hotel. This Hotel is so so beautiful and so clean. We slept so comfortable, and ate the most delicious food at this hotel! From the time we first walked in we felt so welcomed. We felt like home. The staff  were fantastic. I don't want to forget Garth and Doug who own this amazing hotel. All the work they did to preserve this historical hotel is a amazing. Job well done! We already booked for next year.”
