Chautauqua New York Bed & Breakfast for Sale

#1 of 38 B&Bs in Chautauqua County New York!

This Chautauqua New York Bed and Breakfast for sale is evidence that smaller Inns can be truly viable businesses. This five-suite Bed & Breakfast is located on the south shore of Lake Erie in Chautauqua County, New York, and less than one mile from Interstate 90. The Inn is at the center of Lake Erie Wine Country and is only 12 miles from the internationally celebrated Chautauqua Institution. The Inn’s enhanced guest experience, upscale amenities, food offerings, and personal service has supported its long-held position as #1 of 38 Bed and Breakfasts in Chautauqua County on TripAdvisor! In addition, its distinctive elopement packages have earned the Inn recognition as the #1 Place to Elope in Upstate New York by “Where to Elope in New York” five years in a row.

Barcelona Lakeside Inn offers five guest suites, all within the historic 1830 Federal-style Great Lakes Sailing Merchant’s home. 

The guest suites are all spacious and well designed, with en suite baths and sophisticated amenities. All rooms feature king beds (with the exception of one queen room) and offer a combination of views including the Inn’s lush gardens and grounds, a vineyard that abuts the back portion of the property and stunning Lake Erie views. It should be noted that Barcelona Lakeside Bed and Breakfast is the only Inn in Chautauqua County that offers sweeping views of the lake.

Interior common areas include the open sitting and dining room with a wood-burning fireplace with stove insert. Most guests, however, can be found rusticating on the grounds in the warmer seasons. The exterior spaces include a large, covered porch with wide lake views, an adjoining patio, a paved patio with a fire pit, and guest seating (this is a prime area for breakfast service in summer). For those looking for greater outdoor adventure, Lake Erie and Barcelona Harbor (which are state and federally protected) are across the street and offer opportunities for boating, kayaking, hiking, beach glass hunting or simply taking in the view.

The owner’s apartment is located above the Inn’s extended two-bay garage and features an open plan sitting and dining area with a wall of picture windows looking to Lake Erie, a primary bedroom, a spacious bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower, and a separate toilet room with sink. The private owner’s apartment has its own laundry facilities.

While strong occupancy in Chautauqua County is somewhat assured, current owners have actively driven the business in recent years through crafting packages and enhancements that elevate the Inn experience and connect the property to its special location.

Chautauqua County is clearly a desirable market, buoyed by the ongoing efforts of the Chautauqua Institution and the ever-developing Lake Erie Wine Country. The Inn draws strong bookings from Pittsburgh and Cleveland which are both two hours away. The Inn has a strong repeat client business and draws guests from 31 states, Canada, and 8 foreign countries.

This special Chautauqua New York Bed and Breakfast for sale is offered for $995,000.00 by The B&B Team, Inn Partners LLC.
