Old Library Inn

Share this

Since its construction in 1895, the pink house has been home to a local oil producer, a community physician and now Olean’s first Bed and Breakfast Inn.

In 1988 the Marra family purchased the home and proceeded to restore and renovate it into the charming Old Library Inn.

The exterior of the home remains basically as it was years ago, with its towering brick chimney, beautiful bay windows and several ornate copulas which adorn the roof. The elegant stained glass windows remain today, adding an air of romance and history to the buildings features. Inside, the rich woodwork of oak, blistered maple and mahogany, parquet floors and antique furnishings provide a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Simply enjoy a quiet evening in these beautiful surroundings. Whether you are away from home on business, or a romantic getaway the staff of the Old Library Inn look forward to making your stay a memorable one. Please feel free to call 877-241-4348 for reservations or inquiries.

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
