 Erie Canal House

Located in the heart of the Village of Canajoharie and after two years of historic restoration, the property now operates as the Erie Canal House, a superior grade accommodation for tourists and visitors to the area. The Erie Canal House can accommodate up to six guests, who have the entire home to enjoy on an exclusive basis. The Erie Canal House has a fascinating history as well, which was uncovered during the historic restoration process. The oldest part of the Erie Canal House was built before 1855 and was originally a stable for canal mules. It was converted into a home around 1905, when there was no longer a need for a stable. The Erie Canal House is a short walk to shopping and dining. Given its location on the Erie Canalway Bike Trail and the services it offers to cyclists, it has received designation as a “Bike Friendly New York” business from Parks and Trails NY.
