Raubsville Inn





































This is the coolest vacant waterfront property I've ever seen. It's called the Raubsville Inn located right on the Delaware River on the PA side. I had drinks there once when it was still open, sippin some beers, listening to the crickets as the water goes by - it is really amazing AND it's for sale. I found a price for $699,000 but I'd bet it's negotiable since the place has been flooded twice in the last 3 years and I think its been on the market for over a year. In my dream world I would like someone (i know) to buy this and turn it into an amazing restaurant and inn similar to the Depuy Canal house upstate http://www.depuycanalhouse.net/
Any takers?

I live nearby, and it's sad that the Inn is not up and running.
Since your post, it has dropped in price to $599K

It got a lot of business before the floods. The floods basically filled the basements - really unusual though, these were 3 100-year floods in 3 years.
If the new owner could set it up so that it can survive this type of event (move all the critical systems out of the basement, or make things as waterproof/ movable as possible) then this place could be a gold mine.

thanks for that update anon...i really hope someone takes on this place, with a good chef, maybe some lodging and the proximity to Philly and NYC it truly would be a gold mine. Keeping my fingers crossed.
