The hostel and restaurant in the historic center of Pa. Are for sale again


A historic inn with a familiar name is once again for sale.

The Accomac Inn along the banks of the Susquehanna River in Hellam Township, York County, is listed for $ 1.3 million, according to Rock Commercial Real Estate in York.

Owner Tom Ott, who bought the hostel in 2019, has rebuilt and restored most of the stone structure, including the original stone walls, interior walls, ceilings and a new HVAC system.

“We look forward to finding a buyer who enjoys the historic atmosphere of the Accomac Inn and who is willing to bring their creativity and new vision to a new restaurant or event location,” Ott said in a statement. .

This is the third time since 2018 that the hostel has gone on sale.

The 18th-century Accomac was a fisherman’s pub when Doug Campbell bought it about 50 years ago. He converted it into a fine dining establishment and it has received numerous accolades over the years, including a gastronomic award from the International Wine and Food Society.

In 2018, the Accomac abruptly closed and filed for bankruptcy (Chapter 11). Earlier this year, Campbell and his wife Charlene said they were selling the facility to retire and move to Arizona. At the time, the restaurant was listed for $ 1.4 million.

“Happy Henry” Shenk bought it for $ 1 million in 2018, but several months later, due to health issues, he sold it to Ott.

The work Ott has done on the building allows a new owner to focus on building a business without worrying about deferred maintenance and repairs, said John Birkeland, brokerage advisor at Rock Commercial Real Estate. .

The sale includes the real estate, furniture, fixtures and equipment of the restaurant and a restaurant liquor license. The hostel spans approximately eight acres and includes ample parking and a 4,000 square foot warehouse serviced by a dock.

The inn’s dining room has a stone fireplace and can seat 75 people.
