2012

The Hillside Inn Property Acquisition

The Hillside Inn was acquired in October 2012 and is an exquisite 15,000 square foot, twelve suite mansion and out buildings that sit on thirty tranquil and scenic acres, atop the foothills of Wyoming New York. The Hillside Inn is well known in the area from its remarkable past and its most recent footprint as a high end restaurant, party facility and inn.

The property is located at 890 East Bethany Road, Wyoming, NY 14591 and is made up of approximately 30 acres.

The Inn is located in the heart of numerous tourist attractions, such as Niagara Falls; Letchworth State Park (The Grand Canyon of the East); Wine Country and The Finger Lakes of NY State to name a few.

The project was acquired originally to build a retirement community as an alternative solution to its existing hospitality solution. We are currently seeking to sell the Inn, as this project is not something we are capable of undertaking. There is a study that was completed around the retirement community and has great potential. Moreover, the Hillside Inn provides a unique opportunity for someone who is interested in owning their own business in the hospitality and culinary industry. The local Economic Development Council (EDC) along with the town and county officials are very positive about assisting where needed with either service offering. The location couldn’t be more perfect, as it is tucked away in such a tranquil country setting yet within close proximity to so many great New York State attractions. This property contains a historical mystique that differentiates itself and attracts many.
