About

Historic Water Pump

The Den of Marbletown is a cozy place to meet, play, or stay. It’s a museum by day, and a bed & breakfast by night.

The Den has three main parts:

1) A “Teddy Bear Museum” featuring Steiff teddy bears and animals
2) A Steiff gift shop
3) A family-friendly bed and breakfast

Housed in an 1860 farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York State, our goal is to create a memorable and inspiring regional experience for all of our visitors.

The Den also features:
• a reading room for Steiff collectors
• a media lounge
• wi-fi meeting/work spaces for adults
• secret doors and passageways
• old fashioned spaces for wonderment

Who We Are

As your innkeepers and museum hosts, we welcome you.

Steve has always been about hospitality, with his culinary training and restaurant experience (in NYC and Santa Fe). He has also worked in television and in news (where he met Nan) and thrived on finding the calm within the chaos.

Nan is drawn to the stories of strangers through her work as a documentary filmmaker and ethnographic researcher. “I think the world is a better place when strangers can come together and talk meaningfully to each other for a time.” With daughter. Ella, attending 4th grade just blocks away, it will be a welcome change to travel less while still meeting new and interesting people.
