The Steward House B&B in Panama, New York

Escape to the Past

Enjoy the quiet elegance of this fully restored Greek Revival style home. All rooms have a private bath, free wireless internet, and air-conditioning. We have created a casual and relaxed atmosphere while maintaining the historical charm of the house. This historic home is a premier lodging destination located in a quiet village in the southwest corner of Chautauqua County, New York. It was built in 1827 for John Steward and his family, one of the first settlers of this area.
Located just 12 miles from the Chautauqua Institute, this gem was the perfect place for my mother, daughter and I to put down our roots for a couple of days. The room was immaculate.
Pam and John are incredible hosts. They made us feel right at home from the moment we walked in. Breakfast is a 5 star meal. Room was clean and very comfortable. Great people and great place to stay. We strongly recommend a visit to the Steward House
Wonderful accommodations, gracious friends, feel at home, good times with friends; can’t wait to come back and spend time in this beautiful home.


Hospitality is our Specialty

I am not sure there are words to truly express how wonderful our stay was with John and Pam at The Steward House. Their brochure states, "....where guests become family," which is how we were made to feel the moment we arrived. By the end of our stay, that statement became truth - we were part of the family...It was an experience that my family and I will always remember."

"My wife and I stayed in the Gold Room overlooking the rear of the property. We always feel relaxed and welcome when we visit The Steward House. Breakfast is always amazing- John does a great job of coming up with unique combinations that are delicious. Enjoy the view of nature while enjoying a tasty breakfast. You will not be disappointed if you choose The Steward House!"
