Discover the Stories Behind These Historic Lodging Properties

Andelyn Farm: Go Glamping in Your Own Luxury Yurt

The site of Andelyn Farm in Granville has a history that dates back to the late 18th century. During that period, the local community featured log cabins, cropland, and a grist mill. This grist mill served the settlers who lived there until 1902, and it still stands as a historic site.

Today, Andelyn Farm features unique yurts that are equipped with beds, a refrigerator, free Wi-Fi, and more modern amenities. It's a fun glamping experience in a traditional type of dwelling.

Station House B&B: Buy Your Ticket to a Good Night's Sleep

Many years ago, trains used to pass through Granville, and the town's D&H Railroad Station was fully operational. Although train service has since been discontinued, the station's owner has completely renovated it into the Station House B&B.

This 150+ year-old building features Victorian light fixtures, original decor, and antique oak furniture. Each guest room has a train-related theme, such as The Side Car Room and The Caboose, and the main common area was once a freight storage room. Guests can enjoy all the comforts of a bed & breakfast inside this historic railroad station.

Deep in the Granville countryside lies a unique lodging property named The Organbarn, a 1905 barn that has been converted into a music center/residence/bed & breakfast. While it looks like a regular barn on the outside, after you step through the door, you'll see the magnificent pipe organ that gave the building its name.

This pipe organ was built in 1872 and relocated to the barn, and over the years, it has become a permanent part of the art and architecture of The Organbarn. Guests are welcome to play the room's pipe organ and grand piano and treat everyone to some wonderful music. Or, relax in the great room, and then stroll around the property. You can rent one, two, or three bedrooms, and guests have access to all of the barn's facilities.
