About Us

A Piece of History in the Heart of NY

“Originally built and operated as a “Cooker House” The Wellington House has been a resting spot for countless travelers for over the last 100 years. The Wellington served those who could not afford to dine in the high class establishments, it opened its doors and offered shelter those who instead served in them The personal care employees, the waitstaff, the butlers, the cabbies, they all found refuge from their daily toils in The Wellington’s halls.

Back in the day, each room had its own one pot stove, hence the term, “Cooker House”. Tenants of The Wellington could prepare their meals at the end of the day without the pressure of feeding a crowd. They could eat what they would like, as they could afford it. 
Rooms lent out at $1.25 per day at The Wellington, as compared to its sister inns at $3.25 per day. 

While we have removed the stoves from each room, the rest of the buildings charm and history remains intact. Walk along her hard wood floors, sit in her bright and cheery parlor or bask in the sun in the dining room. She is here for all those looking to safely lay their head down and escape their days for a while. Be warned though, not all of her guest have checked out. Some ghostly visitors still roam her halls, ensuring her guests are welcomed and cared for.  

Welcome to our inn. We are so honored that you are considering us as stop along your journey. We encourage you to relax and disconnect while you are here. Sit on our porch, visit our chickens or hide away in your private room, whatever you need to feel refreshed from your time with us.
