BEMUS POINT, NY (WNY News Now) – The prospective new owners of a historic Chautauqua County hotel have announced plans to renovate the nearly a century and a half old iconic building.

Hotel Lenhart in Bemus Point is being sold to Bill and Jill, a couple with decades experience working in the hospitality industry.

The 140 plus year old hotel is a staple of the Chautauqua County community, and the Currys are asking for help in maintaining the structure.

This week, they presented a renovation proposal to the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency, seeking a $410,000 Al Tech loan.

Several significant upgrades are planned, including improvements to the building’s sprinkler system, fire alarms and stair towers.

A rendering of the proposed renno was also released, with highlights including a new rooftop patio and elevator access too. Plans for a bakery, creamery, heated pool and spa are also in the works.

The total cost of the project is $9.8 million dollars, with several grants requested to offset funding.
