The Inn began in the early 1800’s as the “Suspension Bridge House”, named as such because of its proximity to the new suspension bridge which was constructed at or about that time over the Esopus Creek.
Around the turn of the century it was renamed the Hurley Hotel, featuring a tavern and a one chair barber shop. Eventually nicknamed “The Hurley Hilton”, the original barber’s pole can be seen near the bar.
It stayed as such until the early 1970’s when it was renamed the Hurley Mountain Inn. Since then, there have been eight additions to the original building simply because of demand. Over the years the Inn has evolved into a place that is impossible to copy. In fact, Hollywood scoured the United States for just the right spot to feature in the movie “Tootsie” starring Dustin Hoffman, Bill Murray, Charles Durning and Jessica Lange. Of course, they picked the Hurley Mountain Inn. People still come here today to see where Dustin Hoffman performed his award-winning role.
