A story to tell...


The Old Drovers Inn has been welcoming travelers since 1750. John and Ebenezer Preston opened the tavern to those who would herd their cattle from New England to the NYC markets for sale and trade. This B&B has hosted guests from all over the world including celebrities and prestigious Manhattanites. In recent years, the Inn has undergone an incredible renovation to its six bedroom estate. Including modern amenities such as air conditioning, marble tiled bathrooms, a culinary kitchen and restored tavern bar and restaurant, which is open for fine dining Thursday-Saturday nights by reservation.

In 2017, Old Drovers Inn welcomed guests to their newly designed barn, lovingly referred to as The Preston Barn, after the original owners. The Preston Barn holds 200+ guests and is constructed of reclaimed historic barns from the Hudson Valley.  It also includes sliding barn doors, 40’x50’ Vermont stone patio, interior restrooms, AC/Heat, a catering kitchen and more!  

We are located 80 miles North of NYC and sit on 11 acres of land just outside the Hamlet of Dover Plains. We are close to county settings with rural surroundings and country charm.  Neighboring local wineries and hiking trails, it is the ideal venue for any event. It is especially great for wedding couples looking to explore the area with their guests for an extraordinary weekend getaway.
