You can’t miss this iconic corner property as you drive through Barryville, a charming hamlet perched on a hill above the Delaware River. With frontage on three different roads for maximum visibility and 1.2 park-like acres, it features a mixed-use building, sprawling lawn, outdoor dining space, and abundant parking! 


The expansive first floor was most recently set up as the beloved and fully activated Barryville General, with a commercial kitchen, grocery, refrigeration and cold rooms, dining and co-working space, music room, and a separate ice cream parlor with window service. They had over 28,000 transactions and netted over $600,000 in 2022.


With key factors in place – like plenty of parking and multiple entrances– this building is perfectly positioned to be subdivided to accommodate multiple commercial tenants or ventures. Open the shop of your dreams in one space, and cover your expenses with additional commercial tenants! 


The street-level portion of the basement was most recently run by a Brooklyn chef as the popular General Jerk, and provides a fun way to bring in another full time or pop-up commercial tenant. A simple secondary kitchen adjoins a one-room restaurant, featuring a cute bar, indoor and outdoor dining options, and garage-style entryway. 


The entire second story is a charming apartment that has its own private entrance. It is bright and airy with a simple kitchenette set-up, two large bedrooms, one full bathroom and lovely river views. 


This residential space provides a variety of ways to generate additional income and it served the current owners well as both a profitable airbnb, and a convenient landing spot when they were getting BG started. It is also perfect for accommodating visiting chefs, employee housing, a long term tenant- or keep using it as profitable vacation rental! Visit the Town of Highland website for additional permitting information.


This sprawling, gently sloping 1.2 acre property has river views and a huge lawn. Outdoor dining, events and markets, music and games – the possibilities are plentiful! With tons of open, cleared space there is room for a garden and a seamless expansion of the existing dining/fire pit set up.


The western Catskills and Sullivan County have seen significant growth over the last 4 years, benefiting from an influx of new homeowners, businesses, and tourists throughout the region (who come from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania) to enjoy various activities in and around the Delaware River. 


Barryville is one of the quintessential “river towns” that makes this corridor along the Delaware such a special destination. Situated right off of well-traveled State Route 97, you have the benefit of capturing folks intentionally heading into town, as well as those passing through – a true beacon for travelers and locals alike.
