A Bit of History

Originally built in 1832 by the Hallet family, the Spouter Inn’s main  building was created as a summer home to escape the everyday routine of life in upstate New York. Not only a place to relax and enjoy the  summers, but their home also helped to create memories for many in the  community as they held concerts and dances in the second-floor dance  hall. The decades of fun and frivolity were many and the home evolved  over the years. At times it was a place for migrant workers to rent rooms while harvesting local crops or working in the fishing/lobstering  industry.
 
In 1986, the building was renovated, updating the structure,  upgrading its function, yet keeping the feel of its “golden days” of  old. A beautiful carriage house was added with the custom design of  artistic post & beam woodwork. With ceilings of Maine Hemlock and  floors of Ash, each guest room and private bath has its own personality demonstrated by the use of wood finish: Mahogany, Bird’s Eye Maple,  Cherry, Pine, and Oak.
