The Birdhouse in Hancock, NY
167-169 East Front Street, home to The Birdhouse and Parkalbaum’s Emporium, was purchased in 2006 to house a distillery and a burgeoning salvage business.
Somewhere along the way The Birdhouse* was born. *So named by locals due to the lack of a roof and the feathered friends who took up residence for a long while.
Furnished with salvaged treasures, locally made soaps and comfy beds -- The Birdhouse is a sustainable adventure.
Three guest suites, each with a full kitchen and a private bath, provide guests an unusual respite in the Catskills.
After an extensive 5-year renovation and restoration The Birdhouse in Hancock is happily outfitted with a geothermal heating system, energy star rated/energy efficient appliances and fixtures, non-toxic finishes, low-flow faucets, Watersense toilets, restored 100 year-old floors, original moldings, reclaimed doors, and recycled furnishings.
