Bartlett House – Kitchen, Bakery, Café in Ghent, NY – Directions

Nothing is Lost,
Everything is Transformed

Like a monument frozen in time, Bartlett House stands alone on an acre of land on iconic route 66. Once surrounded by a cluster of buildings, it was a flourishing railroad hotel from 1870 to the mid-1900s, serving as the social center of the then industrial town of Ghent, New York. If its walls could talk, they would tell tales of rowdy caucuses and lively parties.

A national historic site, Bartlett House has remained quiet for decades—until 2016. Its communal spirit has been revived through high-quality food and high-quality company. A hub of creativity and companionship, the building now hosts a collaboration of masterminds—chefs, bakers, farmers—all dedicated to creating extraordinary experiences for the taste buds with the best of what the Hudson Valley has to offer. 

Abuzz with the hum of a state-of-the-art kitchen and bakery, Bartlett House café offers the most approachable and freshest fare around, from scrumptious soups, salads and sandwiches to mouthwatering skillet chicken and roasts. The air is filled with irresistible aromas of the world’s best baking traditions, including exquisite breads, flaky croissants, and reimagined muffins. Complementing these tasty eats is exceptional coffee sourced from Sightglass, a San Francisco-based company specializing in sustainable harvests.

The Hudson Valley itself is an important part of the Bartlett House experience. We are surrounded by farmers that have been cultivating the same fields for generations as well as a new breed of growers that have traded in their laptops for land.

No matter where they’re from or where they’re heading, everyone is welcomed at Bartlett House like family. Guests can savor brunch and dinner or pick up a treat to enjoy later. A home away from home, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a good book or catch up with neighbors over a beer or a glass of wine. Once again, Bartlett House stands in its original glory, alive with the energy of the community, providing nourishment through the experience of good taste.
