The main building, built in 1890, was renovated and converted into a restaurant and inn, still maintaining all of its historic charm. A breezy, wraparound porch with additional restaurant seating leads into the reception area, bar, and dining room that seats approximately 55 customers. The ground floor also includes two spacious, fully-furnished guest rooms with private entrances. Upstairs are three more furnished guest rooms (each with their own bathroom), a laundry/utility room, and storage.
Centrally located on a prime corner lot on Main St in Hobart (recently profiled in the New York Times, the village is home to eight independent bookstores), the property is 15 minutes or less from the Western Catskill towns of Bovina, Stamford, and Delhi, 30 minutes to Roxbury and skiing at Plattekill, and under 45 minutes to Windham, Hunter, and Belleayre Ski mountains. The area abounds with hiking trails (including the Catskill Scenic Trail which runs through the village), fishing access, and local farm stands and markets — all this under 3 hours from the GWB.
Renovations, Upgrades, and the Property at Bull & Garland
Surrounding the property is an acre of land — a mix of open yard, shaded areas, and water frontage on the West Branch Delaware River — giving guests a sense of peace and nature while still being in a walkable village setting. Outbuildings include a barn with new flooring (perfect for events and dancing!), an adorable old schoolhouse that is begging to be converted into a tiny guesthouse, and a shed for storage.
The highlight outside is the beer garden space with picnic tables, a cantina/bar with outdoor grill for serving drinks and food, a bocce court, fire pits, performance stage, and new electric and sound system. The property has also hosted lovely weddings successfully which adds to its income-generating potential.
Upgrades to the property include renovations of the main building, extensive drainage work, gravel driveway, tree removal, new fencing, exterior painting, and addition of the beer garden, just to name a few. Included in the sale are all restaurant equipment and furniture, catering equipment, glassware, tableware, cutlery, guest room furnishings, draperies, rugs, lines, etc.
Last but not least, for those looking for the ultimate live-work Upstate situation, Upstate Curious also listed the adjoining 794 Main Street — an expansive and charming 4-bedroom home with original details, plus a fully-renovated guesthouse with an additional bedroom, with river frontage.
