The RE/MAX Realty Group website has the following description on its website:

“An incredibly rare opportunity to own an iconic, turn-key business. The American Hotel of Lima has been the center of area history for over 230 years. Located at the gateway to the Finger Lakes Region, there has been an American Hotel on this site since 1790! The present day building was built in 1840, and is still currently operated as a full service bar, hotel, and event space, with many of the second floor rooms available for rent, as well as a spacious party room for larger gatherings. The American Hotel is part of the National Register of Historic Places, and it is ready to start the next chapter of its life. The possibilities are endless for this multi-use facility, at this high visibility location, at the intersection for routes 20 & 15A. This facility would be a successful location for a tasting room for any of the hundreds of local wineries, breweries and distillers, with a perfect setting for an outdoor beer garden. Other options are a test kitchen, boutique hotel/Airbnb, retreat or event center. Please do not approach owner or staff directly for information or tours.”
