Established Motel overlooking the Delaware River in Hancock NY 23085 State Highway 97

Welcome to the Smith’s Colonial Motel located in Hancock NY overlooking the picturesque Delaware River.

This is a well-loved and established 17 room motel that has been meticulously cared for and owned by the same family for over 30 years.  This has become a well-known and popular destination for tourists who visit the area for the renowned fishing, Catskill mountains and the local Jewish camps in the area.  This is a convenient location to I-86/17 only a few miles from the Hancock exit 87.  There is a designated NYS public access point just a short half-mile down the road to access the river for fishing, kayaking and exploring.  Located between New York City and Binghamton, and only 2.5 hours drive from the George Washington Bridge.

The interior of the 17 rooms are tastefully decorated with a Catskills lodge theme in mind and finished off with tongue and groove knotty pine.  Each room has a breathtaking view of the Delaware River and the distant Point Mountain.  The layout of the motel rooms consist of 15 rooms with two double beds, 1 unit with a queen bed, and 1 unit with 2 double beds and a single bed.  Located directly in the center of the motel is the manager’s living quarters which consists of 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths with a full kitchen, living room, dining room and the main office is directly attached.  The manager’s living quarters is a very comfortable living space that has a large deck on the back side overlooking the river valley with some amazing views.  This space has been occupied in the past by the current owners.

Some of the amenities in the motel rooms include:  refrigerator, microwave, wi-fi, cable, flat screen TV, heat and air conditioning units.  There is a designated main office located in the center of the motel with an additional ice and vending machine room one door down.  Under the manager’s living quarters is a full walkout basement with a small break room area, potable water storage tanks, commercial washer/dryer, water softener, and a storage area for motel supplies.  There is a storage shed on the grounds for equipment and tools.  The grounds include 11.6 acres of land with plenty of additional space that includes a wooded parcel adjoining the motel that could be utilized in the future to add small cottages, wedding venues or other outbuildings.

The motel is conveniently located along the scenic State Route 97 just a few miles south of the Village of Hancock.  The Village of Hancock offers some local dining, grocery store, drug store, gas stations, post office and a few fast food chains.

The current owners have made many updates to the motel over the past 30 years and have meticulously maintained the property.  This continues to be a profitable business for the owners but it is time to pass it on to someone else.  This would be a great opportunity to step into an established business and continue with current operations or expand into cabins and cottages on the additional land.
