About the Inn

Hospitality Redefined

Since its construction in 1895, the beautiful Victorian house at 120 South Union Street has been home to a local oil producer, a community physician, and Olean's first Bed & Breakfast. Nestled in the heart of downtown Olean, this charming, historic inn surrounded by the Enchanted Mountains is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

The Old Library Inn is a 7-guestroom artisanal hotel, run on a personal and small scale with attention to every detail. Our decor features a modern Victorian style with rich architectural details and vibrant accents. Every room features free Wi-Fi, a flat screen television, and a private bathroom.


Every morning starts with a carefully curated multi-course gourmet breakfast in our 19th century dining room, along with enlightening conversation about all things Western New York --- you’ll get insider recommendations of things to do, first-hand reviews of the area attractions, and an insider’s perspective of the area’s unique culture.

So, sit back, relax, and savor a delectable afternoon tea on the spacious front porch in the warmer months, or have a seat fireside on the velvet sofa in the parlor.
