Welcome to our History Page
Ottaway Inn is located in Corry,
Pennsylvania, thirty (30) miles southeast of Erie. This historical town
was established in 1861. Ottaway Inn was designed and occupied by one of
Corry's premiere architects, A.P. Mount. The Inn's rehabilitation
concentrates on its historical Edwardian style features, such as the variety of hand carved wood used in the
original design of the home.
Ottaway Inn was built in 1865, the year Abe
Lincoln died. A.P. Mount also designed the Corry Municipal Building, the
Corry Public Library, the Water Supply Company, the Corry Armory, the Elks Lodge
and several homes. George R. Ottaway purchased the home in 1965 living in
it until he relocated to Phoenix, Arizona in 1988, to be with his children
Robert (Bob), Randall, Roger, and Roween
Ottaway family decided to painstakingly restore the 145-plus year-old house to its
original condition. With three years of hard work and extensive
renovations, the house was transformed into a charming bed &
breakfast. The integrity of the home has been preserved for our family and guests. The Edwardian style home includes all three original fireplace mantle
pieces, a formal dining room, sitting room, formal living room, two pocket
doors, grand staircase in the foyer, hard wood floors and original baseboards/moldings. Guests may want to relax on the porch to enjoy the view of the Allegheny hillside or enjoy a drink in the luscious back yard.
home includes three (3) guest rooms: the Hallmark, Headcorn and Heritage
chambers. Both the Hallmark and Headcorn chambers have queen size beds
hand crafted out of white oak. The Heritage chamber has two twin beds made
of mahogany. The nightstands, desks and dressers are hand made from white
oak, which compliments the home's original type of wood. Each chamber has
its own private bathroom, cable TV and air-conditioning. Our guests will
wake up to enjoy a hearty breakfast prepared by your host and innkeeper.
Ottaway Inn is located in the heart of
Northwestern Pennsylvania's famous Route 6, which extends across the top of the
state bordering the New York state line. We have quick access to Erie,
Jamestown, Peek - N - Peak, Allegheny National Forest, Presque Isle State Park (the Peninsula), Chautauqua Lake, Drake's Well, and Niagara Falls.
